They jumped on every request and fulfilled it very quickly. Rooms are attractive and the 2-bedroom suite we took using points was nearly palatial. Beds were comfy. Real feather...

Hadn't stayed at Cariari for decades and because of its proximity to airport decided to give it a try. Despite being right off the highway it is a beautiful although dated hotel. The lobby space and pool were airy and 70's tropical. The rooms were basic Motel 6 but they were clean. The bed was comfortable. There was a balcony...

Stayed two nights here coming and going to Crocodile Bay Resort. Beautiful hotel, excellent amenities. I used the spa for a massage, and received a deep tissue massage that was pretty effective. Bar is great and food was top notch. The main areas of the hotel are open air with lots of plants and trees around the property. Prices were...

This was my third conference at the Cariari. Accommodations are comfortable and the service is great. the conference room was well lighted and comfortable. The view of the tropical vegetation added an element of tranquility not found in many conference settings. The hotel is near the airport making access easy. However, it is quite distant from central San Jose. Meals...

Stayed at the DoubleTree for a recent conference. The rooms were quiet and well maintained. They had a great breakfast buffet with everything you would want. Great gym for evening workouts as well. I would definitely stay here again in the future.

My family stayed at this hotel on our last night prior to our return flight to the U.S. We picked this hotel due to its proximaty to the airport and we are a Hilton Gold member. This hotel could have been great rather than a Bla Bla Bla hotel. We are disappointed in that other than the pool, there is...

"Good but could be better." seems to be an ongoing theme with the Double Tree Cariari in San Jose. There's a lot going for it, the size, the proximity to certain business locations and the airport, and that it's open air design makes it feel tropical while in the middle of a city. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The...
