This was the first place my wife and I stayed on our honeymoon and we loved it. The room was clean, open, and was very nice overall. Not huge or luxurious, but very comfortable. My wife loved the soft bed and comfortable pillows. I loved the amazing complimentary breakfast. Fresh fruit, and a variety of delicious breakfast foods made it... More

We stayed one night here to break up our drive from Arenal to Manuel Antonio. The hotel is nice but but rooms are basic. Had US cable in English. Good luck finding it as even Google Maps couldn't help us. Finally Bing and trial an error we stumbled across it. How the Costa Rican government thinks no road signs is... More

This property is close to the airport but not a low budget airport motel. It is has old world colonial details, sparkling pools, terrific restaurants, first rate lounge, and so many other amenities. I will stay there every time I'm passing through San Jose.

We were there for part of our honeymoon, and they made the stay very special. The grounds are gorgeous, and the rooms with balconies are nicely sized and tastefully decorated. Try the exec floor for free breakfast and canopes. The spa gets booked quickly, so its worth making an early reservation, as it is quite nice as well.

We stayed here one night at the beginning of our Costa Rica tour. It is a gorgeous hotel. The architecture and furnishings are great, and the grounds are beautiful. The breakfast was fantastic with so many delicious choices. The Tapas restaurant and the little coffee shop were very good. The pool was a little chilly, but the hot tub was... More

The hotel and hotel grounds are beautiful and upscale. The beds were very comfortable, and had lots of pillows. Normal BBW Orange Ginger bathroom supplies present, had safe, clock, hair dryer, luggage stand and easy to find outlets. Lighting was horrid, it was impossible to see clearly at night with all the lights on. Wifi in the rooms not available.... More

Hotel is on a beautiful hacienda style retreat, rooms are big and nice. It is a bit far from the downtown area and the location, although is near the airport, is not adequate to walk by. Breakfast buffet is very good. Pool was not as clean as expected, but then again it was not dirty but with a lot of... More

Read my 5 Star review with the understanding we were only at the hotel for 12 hours. As a Marriott Gold Member, this hotel was on my radar long before scouring the TA Costa Rica Forum for overnight suggestions close to the airport. This hotel rarely, if ever, made the suggestion lists of forum regulars. A true "Costa Rican" experience... More

The San Jose Marriot is a beautifull hotel with a nice atmosphere and nice rooms. However I think that part of its staff lost its human warm and personal care to its customers. (Ex: My wife and I spend about 10 minutes waiting for attention in one of its restaurants even when the restaurant was almost empty) The food is... More
