“Always a great experience”
Reviewed July 27, 2011

We keep going back every year (5 now) because it feels like home and is a really relaxing way to end our Costa Rica vacation. The employees are the best anywhere! Many of them have been at the Doubletree for over 20 years. They know what they are doing and make your stay perfect. They really care and take pride in their work. The bedding is the most comfortable anywhere, the breakfast is excellent, and the hotel has that old world charm. It's a great place for anything from meetings to vacations. There is also a great shopping area within walking distance. We travel all over Costa Rica and stay in many hotels. This may not be the largest or the newest but it has the best customer service anywhere.

The courtesy of the personel compensates all the restrictions with the location (nothing around) and the age of the hotel. You'll feel at your grandmas.

My boyfriend and I only stayed here one night but we loved it! We only stayed one night because we were in other parts of the country the rest of the week. The hotel was very close to the airport. The room was very clean! The television was great! And sooo many pillows!! We ate dinner at the hotel’s restaurant, it was not cheap, but the food was great. The breakfast buffet was amazing, the best breakfast we had in Costa Rica (and we had some great breakfasts there). I would recommend his hotel especially if you need a place close to the airport.

Room Tip: Ten min drive to airport.

My wife and I were here for business and vacation on our first trip to Costa Rica and really liked it. The grounds are nicely styled with a very open air tropical feeling. Pool and hot tub were great. The excellent breakfast buffet was filled with options and lots of Costa Rican pastries. Staff generally spoke very good English and were very kind and helpful, especially the bell desk. We are Gold HH members and they upgraded us to Executive rooms on both ends of our trip, included free wifi and 2 free drinks at the executive lounge. It's about 7 minutes from the airport and the shuttle was $8. It cost us $119 per night before tax and that price exceeded the value. The beds were great. They do an excellent job of catering to American travelers and this was a place we would definitely stay at again if we needed somewhere near the airport. You can safely walk one block to small strip mall where a restaurant and Georgio's Pizza are, and the pizza was really quite good there.

A friend reccomended this place, so we gave it a try. It was our sons 15th birthday and we went to San Jose for some a/c, good food and movies/malls. This is a great place to stay while in San Jose and will probably be our go to place from now on. Good price, spacious rooms, very friendly staff, good breakfast service, good tv's, and some commerce growing next door at a strip mall type place. We will definitely be staying here again when we are back in the big city!

We have 4 children and often have a difficult time finding a hotel to accommodate us without staying in two separate rooms. The Doubletree Cariari had a perfect suite for us, two bedrooms two bathrooms and a living area. One bedroom had a king bed, the other two doubles. The property is well kept and has a very nice outdoor pool area and kids pool. The restaurant offered a breakfast with lots of choices and the staff was very helpful and friendly. We will definitely return!
