I stayed her for one night in April of 2015. I was emailed in advance by Ms. Gonzalez regarding an airport pickup with a van which I chose to take advantage of as it was my first time in Costa Rica. The cost was $20. A standard meter taxi may have been $10-12 ( which I found out later) but...

The hotel is pretty close to the airport which made it handy for an early morning flight. I've stayed at this hotel a few times but realized I never wrote a review! The property is pretty big with 3 stories of rooms. The rooms themselves are really big (I've had both big single rooms and huge suites). The beds are...

We spent the first night of our vacation here after a long day of travel to CR. Loved the open feel. Beautiful hardwood, rocks and stone. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The buffet breakfast was huge with lots of costa rican choices. Loved the outside bar... Highly recommend a trip to the central market.

This hotel is a wonderful experience. The breakfast buffet is to die for. The rooms are clean well maintained. The ease of check in and out are wonderful, not that you want to leave. The warm cookie on check in is a wonderful treat.

I would recommend this facility to anyone with a late flight into San Jose or the day before departing. The pool and outdoor restaurant bar area makes for a great place to watch the kids swim while parents have a drink and conversation. They have a nice complimentary evening reception with tapas and wine for Hilton Honors gold and diamond...

We just stayed at the Double Tree. I really liked the location because it's close to the airport and to the main roads to other cities we visited. It was nice not to have to go to or leave from downtown San Jose when we were traveling to other places in CR. There was a miscommunication regarding transportation from the...

It is one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed! The staff was terrible that everything was for money. They do not help you otherwise, if there is no money at the end! They didn't even show us the bus stop to Jaco because they wanted to pick us to the central bus station to San Jose by taxi...

Double Tree in Costa Rica is different. Its have its old fashion look. With good food, and service. But far away from town. Nothing, is in walking distance. I recommended for business, quiet and cool.

This was a very nice hotel. I wish that we could have spent more time there. We stayed the first night after flying into San Jose and moving on around the country.
