My husband and I stayed here on our first and last nights in Costa Rica because of its proximity to the airport (and having Marriot points). It looked very new, and it was very clean and comfortable. The free wifi was nice to have. It has a gym and an outdoor pool (although it was a little chilly and rainy both times we were there so we did not use the pool). There is an onsite restaurant that we ate dinner at both nights we stayed there. Surprisingly, the food was pretty good. You can get anything from a casado to pizza to sandwiches and pasta. It was very convenient because, if you’ve ever been to the San Jose area, you know how crazy and busy it is. We chose to stay in the hotel, except for walking next door to the Walmart. Walmart is not something I wanted to see nor was it a nice view from our room, but in the end we were glad it was there. We bought bread and cream cheese and fruit for breakfast (breakfast is not included at the Marriot, although you can purchase it). They do have buffet style food at Walmart, but we didn’t eat there. Other than feeling guilty for staying in a nice hotel with a view of a very poor Alajuela neighborhood behind us, the hotel was quite nice. They also have secure parking with a security guard.
