Spread out, it had a nice restaurant and bar. Rooms were nice and comfortable. Not real on the ball regarding Hilton Honors and upgrades but it sorted out eventually. It was a good option for the business traveler, situated between the airport and the city.

I have stayed here twice for business and the hotel and staff are wonderful. I was greeted with as an Honors member and served a warm cookie and quickly checked in. The staff is most helpful in getting transportation.

I have stayed at the DoubleTree Cariari three times now for business and I have never been disappointed. Occasionally colleagues of mine have suggested staying a little closer to our facility but the additional couple minute drive is well worth it. The hotel is always sparkling and customer service is second to none. The DoubleTree Cariari is an open style...

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...

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...

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.
