Maybe it is normal for the region, but the staff go the extra mile many times over to make sure that you have a good time. From the porter to the waiters to the receptionist or the concierge, there always is a friendly word and excellent service without being in your face. Rooms are spacious, pool is nice, building itself... More

We spent our final night in Costa Rica here. I chose it as its close to the airport - close enough for the $25 hotel taxi fare to appear steep! It's located in a surburban area, just off one of the main roads into San Jose and the traffic noise was constant. The lobby area is nice and check in... More

I would highly recommend this hotel. 10 minutes away from San Jose International. Clean, safe, good service and good restaurant/bar. Rooms and bed are perfect. Breakfast package available and really worth it. The breakfast buffet is perfect. No airport shuttle

Rooms are large with windows on two sides for good cross ventilation, though the AC was powerful enough. Water pressure was good and never ran out of hot. Staff very friendly and accommodating, though they often tried to upsell you on things like their travel service instead of the much cheaper red taxis. Lobby and walkways to rooms are totally...

The hotel is beautiful for being so close to the airport. I loved the layout of the hotel and the privacy of the pool. My family of 5 stayed in one room with 2 beds and a roll away. Very spacious room even with the bed. Clean and lots of closet space. The Fitness center was great! Lots of great... More

The family went to celebrate our father's 67th birthday. It wouldn't have been as special without specific Doubletree staff members.
