“Great Visit, Great Hotel”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

The hotel stay was great! The hotel is very clean and appears very new. Room, halls, and restaurant were perfect. All of the staff were friendly helpful and very honest. We took the hotel shuttle to the airport and unfortunately I forgot my iphone in the shuttle. We realized it after being at the airport about 30 minutes and finishing up our check in (we were foreigners). We frantically waited outside the airport for the shuttle to return (which is every 30 mins). As the van pulled up,the driver honked and waved, trying to get our attention to let us know he had our phone. Although we did not speak the same language, the understanding of honestly was universal. SOOOOO thankful there are still good hearted people around.

It is near Poas Volcano like 40 mts, its near to sjo. Walmart is 2 mts walking distance. . It has all facilities for check in and airport is only 3 minutes away.

Dear Guest I am delighted to know that your stay in our hotel met all your needs.

Besides the services offered by our hotel, we invite you to return to our country to meet the thousands of places you can visit, our hotel is within 40 minutes of beautiful scenery and volcanoes, among them we can mention the Poas Volcano, National Park Manuel Antonio, Arenal Volcano just to mention one of the most visited ones. The proximity to the beach and natural landscapes can be your next destination in Costa Rica, we wait with open arms and I’m glad to say: “see you soon”.

Best Regards from Costa Rica.

We stayed here on our last night in Costa Rica. This hotel is only a few years old and is really close to the airport, 10-15 minutes. Shuttles left on the hour and half hour starting at 4am. Breakfast buffet was included. Lots of options - omelette station, Make your own waffle, bacon, fruit, pastries, etc. The hotel is beautiful the staff is friendly and the rooms are well appointed. The cafe's food seemed expensive but it was good and the portions were huge and enough to share or take back to the mini fridge in the room. They also have free wi fi. 30 minute bus ride into san jose. This is the nicest courtyard Marriott I have ever stayed at. We took a taxi from the airport to the hotel for $3.50. Walmart is around the corner. Security guard on property it you are worried about a rental car. f you are looking for a place to stay overnight near the airport this hotel is perfect.

Room Tip: 501 was at the end of the hall

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience in our Hotel, I’m delighted to know that all the little details in our services were special for you. As you mentioned before our shuttle runs every 30 min, since very early, for all the people who was early flights as you.

We appreciate all your comments regarding to the breakfast buffet, I have share with our Restaurant and Kitchen staff your comments, certainly motivates us to strive for more options to serve and maintain consistency in our menu options.

So as you said, our hotel is really near for a lot of options, I hope you were able to know all the cultural places in San Jose as the Gold Museum, The National Theater, Jade Museum, or even this places can be a good idea for a next trip to Costa Rica,

I’m glad to know that your stay was memorable and we hope you visit us again,

Very close to SJO and shuttle service to and from airport is quick and reliable. Walmart is steps away, otherwise the menu at the hotel is varied and quite reasonable. Rooms are nice with large bathroom and shower.

This hotel is right next to the airport and seems brand new. The rooms are large and clean and they have free wifi. There is a Walmart next door where I bought a case of water and a mini cooler for $10 which should last me for a week of adventuring. It was the perfect place to rest up after a long day of flying

This is a newer hotel in San Jose, Costa Rica. It has been open for about 1 year and is very modernly decorated. The hotel is very close to the airport and Walmart is right next door. The hotel can assist you with paying your departure tax for $33 USD and also will shuttle you to the airport. It was very clean and quiet. After a long week in Hermosa, it was nice to have some R&R at this hotel.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback of our hotel; now that you mentioned the Wal-Mart, I want to share with you that the Plaza Mango Park will be open soon, with a lot of different options including restaurants, and retail stores just a few steps from the main entrance of the hotel.

I am really glad to know that you had the opportunity to enjoy Playa Hermosa, is one of the best locations for surfing. Hope you also has the opportunity to visit Manuel Antonio, one of the most beautiful and visited National Park in Costa Rica with white sand just a couple of hours from our hotel, or Poas Volcano which is the largest crater in the world and 45 min away from our hotel, is a must, or this will be the perfect excuse to plan a new trip to Costa Rica.

Your kind feedback is very much appreciated and we hope to welcome you back again soon.

Kind Regards,
