The DoubleTree Cariari is an excellent place to stay while in Costa Rica. The staff provides outstanding support and knows the area very well and offers great advice on where to go and is great with getting good taxis. I highly recommend this hotel.

Amazing customer service and cleanliness. Exceptional all the way around. There is a nice pool area too! Everyone is very friendly, from the valet area through the lobby, to the restaurant and beyond. Servers in restaurant are wonderful, and the hotel is close to the San Jose airport. You can take a taxi from San Jose airport (about $15) or...

I recently tagged along with my husband on a business trip to Costa Rica. The first five days his company booked our stay at the DoubleTree. I was somewhat reluctant envisioning myself spending the better part of my days alone at a typical U.S. chain hotel, by the airport, and lacking the true Costa Rican experience. What a pleasant surprise...

I have stayed here three times in 2015 (for a week at a time, on business) and love how clean and quiet it is. The staff is great and knew my first name on my last visit, which made it seem like they really cared when they asked if everything was ok. If you stay here, check out the organic...

Our last day in Costa Rica before our flight back to the States. This seem like a higher class Doubletree. Much more fancier than the one in the US. Of course you get the warm cookies upon check in. The room was lovely, clean and big. The hotel bar is a great place to people watch with a drink. This...

Double Tree Cariari is quite a confortable place to stay. Its colonial style in the green of beautiful trees, bushes and flowers create the right ambiance to make a traveller feel cosy and enjoy any minutes of brake from the work

I stayed there a few weeks and it was very pleasant, as this hotel is a lovely, quiet and warm place, with very friendly and funny staff. The hotel is located halfway between the airport and the city. It is just 10 minutes away by walk from a mall.

Great hotel to stay for business or personal. Welcoming staff, delicious food, clean rooms, pool and hot tub. Easy location off the Pan American and a quick drive from SJO. Attended parking lot adjacent to the hotel.

It was a good experience staying here. Very reasonable price too for an all inclusive. Of course, you don't get to see much of Costa Rica, but the pools here are beautiful. Also, there are so many cocktails to choose from with friendly staff everywhere. Overall, I loved the food, but I was a little disappointed that the snack bar...
