From the initial encounter with the front to desk to every other aspect of our stay, our experience at the Costa Rica Marriott, San Jose was a lesson in how to provide guests with a relaxing, rewarding and low pressure stay.
The only thing that I would count as a possible negative was that one meal we had in the main restaurant was not that great, but the friendly, smiling staff made up for any doubts we might have, at every turn.
Breakfast was excellent, the bed was dreamy, the room we stayed in was quiet and very comfortable. Grounds were well-tended, the fitness room was outstanding for a hotel and the spa was top class.
We attended a conference, but the business side of the hotel did not infringe upon the leisure side. The building itself is well planned and not at all boxy, like some hotels, and the interior/exterior feel worked wonderfully.
