The Marriott San Jose Hotel in Costa Rica is built in a hacienda style with beautiful grounds in a quiet area near the airport. The building is beautifully decorated with a lovely interior courtyard. Many rooms have views of the mountains surrounding San Jose. All public spaces and rooms were immaculately clean and comfortable. At night, they lit electric candles... More

Stayed five nights over Christmas break (Dec 2012). Had a wonderful time, everything about the property was top quality. Included breakfast buffet was a perfect start of the day. Had access to the executive lounge which provided snacks and drinks further making the stay even more pleasant. Overall, the whole family enjoyed the hospitality and relaxing environment. It is close... More

Although I stayed here for work, it is a very beautiful hotel and I could stay here if i was on vacation. It used to be a coffee plantation so its big and sprawling with several nature walks on the grounds. The restaurants are very nice but the service is excellent. The pools were a bit cold but the gym... More

We stayed here for two night as part of a Costa Rica tour. This is a modern hotel on the outskirts of San Jose and within a few minutes of the airport. The rooms are spacious, the food is good and the staff very helpful and friendly. Some noise does echo from the corridors to the rooms due to the... More

We used this hotel for our first and last nights in Costa Rica. It's close to the international airport, and fairly close to Tobias Bolanos, the airport that NatureAir uses. This is a classy property in a beautiful setting - lovely building with attractive Spanish colonial central courtyard and very comfortable rooms with good beds and quality bedding. The food... More

Excellent easy in , easy out after or before your flight at San Juan Santamaria. Restaurants are open late. Room service is 24 hours. Several breakfast options. Better rooms are on the upper floors. Spa is open until 9pm.

The Marriott was an excellent venue for our conference and a wonderful place to relax. My room was well-appointed and clean, with a beautiful view from the window. I found Goldilock's bed in my room, but there was nothing "just right" about the luxurious bath. The large tub and copious amounts of hot water encouraged self-indulgence. The hallways and public...

Very nice rooms, lots of space, comfortable beds, modern updated bathrooms. Food is excellent, breakfast buffet is incredible - everything you could ever want, hot and cold - omelettes made fresh, oatmeal, nuts, fruit, eggs, meats, cheeses, fresh juices, fresh fruit, pastries... Lovely to sit outside and have a view of the volcanoes in the distance. Friendly helpful staff. It... More

We stayed here about 14 years ago and it is pretty much the same which is a good thing. It is right in the middle of a coffee plantation and is also very pretty. The rooms are pretty basic but the grounds are spectacular.

This property is our favorite hotel when we fly out of San Jose instaed of Liberia. Great food, nice rooms and the service has always been very good. The concierge lounge is outstanding. It's only a couple of minutes to the airport and Escazu "can" be about 15 minutes once you figure out the route once.
