The Marriott San Jose Hotel in Costa Rica is built in a hacienda style with beautiful grounds in a quiet area near the airport. The building is beautifully decorated with a lovely interior courtyard. Many rooms have views of the mountains surrounding San Jose. All public spaces and rooms were immaculately clean and comfortable. At night, they lit electric candles in the public areas which were very pretty. The restaurants looked lovely and the food was reasonably priced. The executive lounge was very nice and offered a nice selection of food for breakfast and for the hors de oeuvres hours. Drinks were not free in the executive lounge, but were competitively priced. Service everywhere was excellent. The grounds alone are worth a visit. They have two large pools and a hot tub surrounded by lovely landscaping. They offer a spa and exercise room in a separate building. There is a small golf course and other sports facilities, including a measured walking path, on the grounds. There is also a small chapel on the grounds. They have a travel service on the property offering local tours, but we connected with a local guide who offered a more cost-effective solution for our available time. The hotel offered airport pickup service for a small fee which worked very well for us. The only downside is that this hotel is not in the downtown or tourist area if you wish to walk to attractions and outside restaurants, but this was not a problem for us. I highly recommend this hotel. We will return should we find ourselves in Costa Rica in the future.
