Hotel suggestion? I night in San Jose with kids

I need suggestions for a nice hotel for just one night in San Jose area, at the beginning of August for my family of 4: 2 adults and 2 kids, ages 10 and 13. We're arriving from the Arenal area in the late afternoon, dropping off our rental car near the airport, and leaving the next morning for Toruguero on a tour with Costa Rica Expeditions. I'm hoping to find a hotel convenient to the airport but also somewhat accessible to the city (although I've read that there's not much to do there, especially with kids) in case we decide to go in to a restaurant. Also: hotel should be in a safe, quiet area, and have a nice pool for the kids. AC is a plus. We're hoping to spend around $150 total for the whole family. Any suggestions?

Stay at the Marriott San Jose (San Antonio de Belen). It is 5 min from the airport, and is beautiful. You'll be happy you did. The prices vary depending on how you book, but you can often get a room at the price you desire. If you can't find the price on the internet, try calling the hotel directly (in San Jose).

Or, see Xandari. They will pick you up at the airport, which is 15 min away.

Just stayed at the Marrriot last week, have been there several times.

Excellent hotel, 2 pools, hut tub, was there with family, 2 kids 14& 9.

They enjoyed the pools, there is also a driving range if the kids are into golf.

Shuttle leaves every half hour for airport.

Rooms are large, very clean, it is a top notch Marriott, no complaints in three different stays.

Ditch the kids at night and have a drink on their veranda, very nice, just order beer or mixed drink, wine is overpriced.
