The hotel was nice and great location. In the morning we needed a taxi to San Jose bus station at around 5.30am, we asked for a taxi and in the morning it was a van that was linked to a tourism operator or the hotel, the journey was 10 minutes and cost $35, later that day we took a taxi (as bus schedule had changed) for 4 hours 15 minutes and the cost was $150 total!
Basically the front desk/hotel do not ring a taxi but like to pick your pocket through their own transport. Awful start to an amazing Costa Rica break, Marriott should have better practices as paying a decent amount to stay there. Will not be returning.
