“my favorite hotel in san jose”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2009

This hotel is a luxurious colonial style place. You are surrounded by lots of plants and there's fresh air and you can hear the birds chirping. The rooms are clean, nice colonial/contemporary decor and the beds are great (Marriot beds). The breakfast has a fantastic selection and the gall pinto is really delicious. The hotel has 2 pools and also a huge golf course. They also have a cute coffee shop. The hotel is about 20 min. from San Jose, so you are a bit isolated but the good thing is that you when you get to the hotel, you feel so relaxed and it's very nice to get away from the noisy city. I've stayed in various hotels in the San Jose, and this is definitely my favorite one.

Really nice place if staying near airport. However if you are going to be going to San Jose a lot it is about $15 one way via taxi. You may want to stay in town if a lot of trips to town or rent a car.

I read other reviews and can’t imagine that there is better, service excellent and property is spectacular. Can’t see how you can wrong, very close to Airport and signs will lead you there easily, yes its hard to get lost with all the signs.

The hotel was very nice - the rooms were spacious and comfortable. The service is great and the spa is not to be missed. The pools are wonderful - clean and relaxing! The only negative was that one of the restaurants were closed and after three nights we were sick of eating dinner at the same restaurant.

Hotel is a $6.00 cab fare from the aiport. Very convenient for business in San Jose and a good jumping off spot for other destinations in CR.
Hotel is beautiful during the day and even more stunning at night, candles and flowers all over the hotel. Amazing mountain views from the rooms and restaurants.
Serv ice was impecable and with a smile.
Room service was very efficient, food in the retaurants was delicious too.
I can't help but "gush" about this Hotel, I hope to return very soon!

This was our first trip to Costa Rica and we wanted to stay the first night of our trip close to the airport so we chose the San Jose Marriott. WOW... What a beautiful Hotel it was!!!!
The layout of the hotel is open and charming! The rooms are extremely quiet and comfortable. The only problem we had was that there didn't seem to be enough service at the hotel. We had to wait quite a while to check-in and pool service was hard to find.
Other than that, it is a wonderful hotel!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2009

Facilities felt more like a business hotel situated in a hacienda. If you've been to Camino Reals in Mexico, that's what it is like. Bathrooms could be those of a Courtyard/Residence Marriott type.

It didn't help that all we heard were American business people griping in every facility of the establishment, and the food on offer in the only places open, lean towards American fast food. NOTE: Big disappointment that Casa Isabel with its innovative tapas offerings has been closed until further notice.

Service staff friendly and professional - but you'd expect it of a business hotel too, wouldn't you?

Recommend yes with caveats. If you're looking for a real hacienda experience, look elsewhere (and probably outside of San Jose). If you want a place to start/stop your Costa Rican journey, a place that has the 'comforts' of a good US hotel, this is the place.
