The DoubleTree Cariari is a nice, comfortable resort hotel located close to the SJO airport and not far from downtown San Jose. It's a great location to begin your tours of Costa Rica. The staff is friendly and welcoming and don't forget to enjoy a warm cookie upon arrival.

Finished a 10 day award stay for our elopement/honeymoon. Very clean & comfortable, typical DoubleTree standards. Nearly all staff are fluently bilingual. Dining staff were very attentive and nice...and the food was delicious morning, noon and night. Pool facing rooms can be noisy late into the night. Convenient to downtown, however hired car rates are steep - $23 USD for... More

The hotel architecture and ambience is remarkable. The rooms and amenities are comfortable. They accept pets (our elderly cat is getting to be an experienced traveler). It is especially attractive if you have a Hilton Honors credit card - we use the points to stay here overnight about every 6 months when we pass through San Jose. The restaurant is... More

Double Tree Hilton in San Jose is a very nice hotel as per Hilton standards. The rooms are clean, the staff are helpful, and the location is convenient near the airport as well as a number of nice restaurants. There is a bit of noise from the nearby highway, but if that sort of thing bothers you, ask for a... More

I was surprised by the very pleasant and open atmosphere of this hotel. It had amazing woodwork and views. I was expecting a normal business class hotel and felt, instead, like I was in an open air Villa.

Comfortable. Spacious rooms and friendly staff. Beautiful pool area. Close to the airport, which was perfect after making the trip from NC. Not exactly for "locals" but there are some good restaurants nearby that we walked to for dinner. The concierge staff was very helpful and spoke Spanish and English easily.

There are delicious warm cookies upon arrival. The restaurant has awesome ceviche and a custom omelet bar every morning! Honestly, we were so happy to stay here versus staying in the city center. It's just a short 15 minute drive away and has a beautiful pool. Rooms are clean and the staff was lovely!

Poor quality of property, charges for EVERYTHING, zero value for what I spent. VERY disappointing. I have traveled all over the world and have been in Costa Rica many times. This was by far the worst place I have stayed. Well NEVER stay here again.
