“Comfortable stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

stayed there for two nights and it was well worth it. The pool is more like a children's paddling pool and it is overlooked by people's houses and gardens but I didn't use it anyway. Service is great and breakfast was very yummy.
Huge bed and excellent WiFi connectivity.

This is a beautiful hotel and it was a welcome sight after a long day of travel. We didn't arrive at the San Jose airport until about 2:30 am. There are no shuttles at this hour but getting a taxi is extremely easy (we know next to nothing of Spanish) and only $3 U.S. The hotel staff were all very friendly and the desk clerk spoke English. This was a very clean well cared for hotel. The view of the mountains outside our windows was gorgeous to wake up to.

Dear guest,

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience, I’m glad to know that all the services inside and outside of the hotel contributed you to have a wonderful and short night.

As you stated official Airport taxis are safe and is not a long drive, they will charge only minimum rate from 2 to 5 dollars including tip if you like, if you are not able to find our Airport shuttle or if you arrive late midnight.

Once again thank you so much for staying with us, our team and I are looking forward to see you soon,

Great value! Like every courtyard marriot i've been in. And i mean that as a great thing, it's reliable, very clean. Across the street from a strip mall to be able to quickly eat dinner if you arrive late.

This Courtyard is close to the airport and right next door to a Walmart (in case you forgot something). Rooms / cleanliness / etc. as expected from my favorite business chain. An unexpected plus - a washer/dryer free to guests! We stayed here halfway through our vacation in Costa Rica and washed all of our dirty clothes, a very nice feeling.

Dear Mr. David: thank you very much for taking the time to review and share your positive experience with readers.
Thank you for choosing Marriott and our property considering that Courtyard is your favorite brand in addition to highlight our services to customers and guests as Laundry and location; something that we need to add is the opening of Mango Plaza with more options to enjoy lunch and dinner within walking distance.
Hope to see you soon in the future and don't forget to let us if you plan to visit Costa Rica Paradise again,
Pura Vida ;)

Hotel is flawless. Beautiful design on amazing grounds. Wife and I loved it. An oasis in San Jose. Big rooms, very we'll done. The pool is very beautiful surrounded by a lush golf course. Really perfect setting. The restaurants have both indoor and outdoor seating and really capture the Costa Rica feeling. Looking forward to visiting again. We spent New Years Eve in the restaurant which was very festive and very fun. Hotel did a fantastic job. The hotel is about 3 miles or 5 minutes from airport which was so convenient. Only a $15 cab ride and very easy to get to. We only spent several days at the hotel while bouncing around to different parts of Cost Rica but would absolutely visit again for a much longer stay. Easily one of the most deluxe and nicer hotels in the entire country with high end rooms and really nice restaurants that serve a variety of kinds of food. Restaurants have 3 choices from burgers and cheap to much more pricey and finer food. All 3 restaurants were absolutely fantastic

Good value for money and pretty much everything you need in an airport hotel. It is on the doorstep of the terminal (5 minute transfer) with a free shuttle every 30 minutes. Check in and out are efficient, the free wifi has a decent signal strength and the rooms are comfortable and sound proof. Breakfast is good and reasonable and starts from 4am for the early flights.

The staff is friendly and accommodating and the rates are very reasonable. We stayed three nights and the place was a perfect place to prepare for the trip home but still close enough to San Jose to get some final shopping done. The food is decent here as well.
