This hotel is fine if you've arrived in Costa Rica late and just need to spend a night. It's clean and modern. It's next door to a Walmart and a mini-mall that has a few restaurant choices. It also offers a nice breakfast buffet. However, I wouldn't stay here for a vacation. The pool area is small and not landscaped.... More

This is a really nice hotel, and very convenient to the airport. It appears to be fairly new, and our guest room was quite spacious. We had to leave early the following morning for the airport, so unfortunately couldn't try the breakfast. There is secure parking, and the outdoor pool was pretty good, although the water was fairly cold. The... More

This hotel is so close to the air port. It seems new or freshly updated, great rooms with all the amenities you'd expect from Marriott in Canada or USA. I was very impressed that if I never stepped foot outside this hotel I would feel as though I was in canada or USA. This is why k choose chain hotels... More

Picked hotel simply for its location and glad we did. The hotel reception was informative and friendly. The decor was very modern. The main areas, restaurant and rooms were immaculately clean. The airport shuttle is free and runs every half hour starting at 5am. Takes about 5-8 minutes to get there with no traffic--a little more with traffic. Tip: if... More

This is a nice hotel but you definitely pay for it, pretty pricey! They had a nice workout room and pool which was a great way to start my vacation. The shuttle too and from the airport was super convenient and everyone was really nice. I would stay here again purely for the convenience since I got in super late!
