We spend two nights here each time we visit Crocodile Bay / Osa Peninsula. The staff at the Melia Cariari is professional, efficient and gracious. Although there are several good restaurants nearby, we have always chosen to eat at the restaurant / bar poolside and have never been disappointed. This offers a very safe, secure and comfortable place for our...

The DoubleTree in Belen is an awesome hotel. Like all Hilton hotels, the customer service is exceptionally wonderful. I stayed in a 2 bedroom suite which was large and comfortable. There were televisions in each bedroom as well as the common area. My only gripe is the room did not have heat, only AC. San Jose is warm year round...

Being a Hilton Honors member, we were hugely disappointed with our room (moved 3 times) and staff (patronizing). It may be the tropics, but it was windy and cold during our stay. It was cold in the room, we turned on the heat, got into bed and almost froze with the cold air blowing down onto the beds. The next...

Was unable to work in the room and use the phone due to the noise I should have been advised during arrival or placed in a room that did not have noise issues, this was an extremely annoying situation and affected my work schedule.

Good Value with a fabulous Buffet breakfast. Little disappointed that you have to pay for Internet. We have stayed in Many Hotels in Costa Rica, especially in San Jose and have never had to pay. The process to getting on the Internet after you pay was very archaically. You have to call the front desk and get a code. Reminded...

This hotel is the best choice for a stay in San Jose. The staff was very nice and the location next to very good restaurants was a plus. We really enjoyed the pool and sauna. We will definitely stay in this hotel every time we come to Costa Rica.
