“Would stay here again”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

Lovely hotel, perfect for business in Cariari. I was there for two weeks in November.
I was given a very big room, overlooking the pool area with a balcony. Big kingsize bed (which wasn't two singles put together!) Bathroom, clean and spacioius also.

Reception staff were friendly enough, and also was given a free freshly baked chocolate chip cooke on arrival. The reception hall was quite impressive!

Free shuttle rides to and from work were arranged each morning, which was a nice touch and will mean that I come back here again.

Pool looked idealic (although finished work far too late to actually use it!). Gym room was bigger than your average sized hotel gym, and was well equipped.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool - I think they are a bit more expensive though

Doubletree Cariari is a lovely rustic hotel Located only a 20 minute taxi away from downtown San Jose. It provide a lovely quiet atmosphere while still being close to the city. Great concierge services and great staff especially in the hotel's executive lounge. Great stopping point to and from other points in Costa Rica!

Very personable and quiet hotel. Food is reasonable but not cheap. Room cleaning was difficult to figure out the washing days. Had extra towels showing up on my shower stall, looked like they were used. No fresh water bottles daily. Everyone is very helpful and and vey polite.

We like staying near the airport since we have no love for San Jose nor its traffic. This Doubletree is better most hotels in San Jose but expect it to be spectacular....it's a Doubletree. Nice clean rooms. Good breakfast. Rooms near Casino ate noisy.

I arrived late at night with a tour group, the staff was prepared for us and got us through registration in a timely manner. However, there was a wedding in the pool area, so loud music. Great place to stay.

I read some if the negative reviews and became slightly concerned, but my experience there was phenomenal. The hotel is gorgeous, our room was large, and the food was fantastic. Great hotel if you're staying in the area.
