“Courtyard Marriott - Should be a Regular Marriott. :)”
Reviewed August 16, 2014

Simple put this hotel was out of the Courtyard league. It is downright one of the best international Marriott's I have been to.

From the time I arrived to the time I left it was a true pleasure to stay there. To be transparent the only thing missing was an exec level lounge and it would have easily been regular Marriott.

Though the english was lacking at times from the staff they went over and above time and time again to ensure that my stay was the best.

When I arrived my company has not secured breakfast in the room rate. Since I was tired I did not complain but the front desk associate noticed my displeasure and when he finished checking me in he said and we have added breakfast in the rate....he did not mention I was platinium nor did he mention this was my first time.

Think about it that was how my first interaction with the staff there was an opportunity to WOW me and they did.

the hotel lobby was completely done in the new style of the courtyard with the huge touch screen TV. very bright complete with PC and printer all free....FREE WIFI in the whole hotel.

there were electrical outlets all over the lobby and the restaurant as well for that matter....so it wad very easy to plug in and juice up, at any time of the day.


Now the room it was huge one of the hugest I have been in. I did not take any pictures as the pictures from the hotel site were spot on. I even had a huge soaking bath which I used every day/night.

I did not encounter any noise from the front of the hotel that was where the room was facing and I am a light sleeper, though I can tell you that in that part of the city it is quite dead at night after 10ish.

the TV was great! but only a few channels were in english. the bed was a king with tons of pillows and I love pillows. there is also a pullout bed/sofa in the room.

mini fridge that worked and coffee machine as well.

I did check out the pool not really worth mentioning sorry to say.

The Breakfast was fresh all across the board! from the coffee to the omelet station to the fruits and fresh squeezed fruits juice! NO TANG here ! ....the bacon was not processed you can just tell the food was fresh!

Now for the next thing about this hotel....it is next to a new outdoor mall called La Grand Via.

typically American restaurants, brand new movie theater, starbucks, to be honest not much going on there BUT still nice to walk over after work not over crowded at all very inviting at night. There as even a Japanese restaurant.

I look forward to going back!

The rooms were clean, quiet, and Safe. The staff was very polite and spoke at least very workable English. There are Armed Guards that are not "in the way" but stationed around to provide you with a sense of security. The Breakfast Buffet is good, with a great array or traditional "American" options as well as local favorites.

Just Minutes from the US Embassy and within very short walking distances to three malls.

Room Tip: Not too many tips. We stayed on the "Volcano" Side of the hotel and it Thunderstorm'd...

Nice place to stay for a family weekend, the staff is very friendly and the kids enjoy a good time playing by the pool, breakfast buffet also really nice, however only one complimentary breakfast is included, that is to me the only downside since the price per night could include that. Overall a nice place with good location

I recently stayed at this property, well I just checked out of it. To the pros the front desk manager was very professional. I did have to state that I was a platinum premier member several times and then I received an upgraded room. The room was great. I will post some pictures as soon as possible. The housekeeping staff and the other staff member were amazing. They made me feel like a valued guest. The hotel has an arrangement with a taxi company and these cab drivers are great, they will take you wherever you need to go in short notice. I had a cab driver name Arnold and the young man was very professional and very safe. Next to the property there is a modern mall with a movie theater and a Walmart is about a 5-7 minute walk away. In the mall area there is visable security.
To the cons: The internet was very spotty. I had some good luck and I had a few frustrating nights trying to send and receive emails.The bed was a bit firm for my tastes
Please note that this country uses the United States dollar as there currency.
I hope that this helps. Good luck and safe travels.

Breakfast buffet is awesome. Staff is very nice! Pool is very nice. Gym is okay but not great. They really need to get an ATM machine inside the hotel so you don't have to worry about getting mugged when withdrawing some cash. There are some very nice shops and restaurants nearby with a heavy police presence.

Better than the Hilton Princess. Better toilet paper, modern, hip and trendy. Excellent location for shopping and dinning. Welcoming staff. One of the desk agents recommended a taxi service that ended up giving me a nice tour. The food is good at the hotel, it also has a small and cute swimming pool, which I liked because it has privacy- not by restaurant windows. Natural orange juice in breakfast!
Sleep quality was not very good. Noisy premises.

Great place, very clean. The staff is very friendly. I would definitely stay here again. Keep up the good work. I would suggest more street signs and clear directions from the airport to the hotel on how to get there.
