We had our wedding at Hotel Martino in 2013 and the entire operation from the wedding side was great. The food was amazing, the service was great and the grounds were gorgeous. I got a lot of comments from friends and family that the food was the best ever at a wedding, especially the filet and the tiramisu (included with wedding dinner).
The only issues were with the maintenance of the rooms themselves. The rooms weren't cleaned properly with fans un-dusted and dead insects in the room. In our room and a friend's the shower doors were off the track, rubber gaskets hanging down and broken. The quality of the cabinets in our bridal suite was poor and cheap and they wiggled when touched. In the room where the wedding was they maintenance department had to fix the A/C unit during the reception when it started dripping water onto the dance floor.
The whole experience was great, and we would recommend Martino to anyone getting married in Costa Rica. The location is close to the airport and easy to get to in La Garita. The food was definitely the best wedding food we have ever had without question. Just double check the maintenance of the rooms!
