“Beautiful hotel in a beautiful location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

I was surprised by the very pleasant and open atmosphere of this hotel. It had amazing woodwork and views. I was expecting a normal business class hotel and felt, instead, like I was in an open air Villa.

Comfortable. Spacious rooms and friendly staff. Beautiful pool area. Close to the airport, which was perfect after making the trip from NC. Not exactly for "locals" but there are some good restaurants nearby that we walked to for dinner. The concierge staff was very helpful and spoke Spanish and English easily.

There are delicious warm cookies upon arrival. The restaurant has awesome ceviche and a custom omelet bar every morning! Honestly, we were so happy to stay here versus staying in the city center. It's just a short 15 minute drive away and has a beautiful pool. Rooms are clean and the staff was lovely!

The staff at the Double Tree in San Jose are the best! The tour offerings are top shelf. These folks go out of their way to make stay as comfortable as possible. The location can't be any better, close to the airport and central to any location you can think of. The grounds are beautiful and it is just a pleasant and relaxing accomodation.

Poor quality of property, charges for EVERYTHING, zero value for what I spent. VERY disappointing. I have traveled all over the world and have been in Costa Rica many times. This was by far the worst place I have stayed. Well NEVER stay here again.

Hotel is beautiful, and has a very open feeling. The room was flawless, and was exceptionally clean. Would recommend to everyone, single, couples and families. The staff was nice, and you can't beat the warm cookie upon check-in!

Nice hotel. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Good location close to the airport. Room was large, comfortable and very clean. Would not hesitate to stay there again, especially if I arrived later in the day at SJO or if I had an early flight out the next morning.
