My husband and I have stayed here 5 times in the past 3 months and we absolutely love it. Every room we've stayed in has been completely different and exceptionally clean. The staff working the front of the hotel all speak excellent English and have been very welcoming and helpful. The majority of the bar/restaurant staff speak some English so...

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed August 29, 2016

I stayed at this hotel recently on business. The location is excellent, close to airport and a few bars/restaurants/grocery stores in walking distance, even a mall. Cheap Uber to downtown. The lobby is open and airy, the rooms were clean and spacious, and the restaurant was great! The full breakfast was included in my rate but would be worth it,...

Breakfast was stated as included when booking room, and when checking in with the front desk but restaurant charged $10/day extra for breakfast. I suggest finding someplace cheaper and elsewhere for breakfast.

Super comfortable bed and USA standard hotel. Service was very prompt and staff was friendly and helpful. We stayed here because of the Cariari Golf Course but the hotel is not right on the course. You have to carry your clubs about a block. I enjoy birdwatching and could see flocks of parrots and egrets from our balcony.

I stay at this hotel every year when I fly into and out of San Jose, Costa Rica. The hotel is extremely nice and well spread out. The hotel allows you to get off of a busy flight and immediately relax, which is so nice.

In judging a hotel I believe that it comes down to expectations, value for money and how you feel afterwards about your stay. This was certainly the most disappointing, by some distance, of the seven hotels that we stayed at in our trip to Costa Rica. In fact I am rather surprised that there is not a lot more criticism...

Checked into the hotel with no issues. It was a gorgeous hotel with outdoor halls to the rooms. Hotel is in a circle and the pool is in the center of the hotel. Can see the pool from almost all inside rooms. Housekeeping was great. They left a card and a chocolate heart on my pillow for Valentine's Day. Nice...

You'd expect more from DoubleTree than a worn out 80's hotel. But that's what it is. The staff is very kind and the hotel is conveniently located near the airport, but the set up is out dated. It feels dark and damp and expensive. Especially the bar and restaurant but also the rooms. We booked a room with 2 double...

We were at this hotel on 3 separate days during a tour of Costa Rica. My husband is handicapped, and we had requested a suitable room. We were on the first floor, neat the stairs. The room had a very strong mold odor. Since we arrived late and were leaving early, we stayed in the room, but in the morning...
