“Very nice hotel”
Reviewed December 26, 2011

Came here Christmas Eve for one night before flying home on Christmas day. Very nice hotel. Staff is very friendly and helpful - excellent. Hallways are noisy (open courtyard and tile floors). Had a buffet dinner, which was fair. Near airport, not near downtown.

Beautiful Hotel, impeccable service & delicious food. All staff I encountered is bi-lingual. Located close to the San Jose Airport, this hotel is great for spending your arrival night or last night. Love the tropical, plantation home style! The main building is built around a great Courtyard and is surrounded by coffee plants. Heavy wood furniture, tile floors and fresh flowers everywhere. Nice gift shop and business center. Also, this hotel is located close to several business parks for US and European Businesses. Great place to stay if you are traveling to San Jose on business.

I have stayed here twice and have been very pleased with the level of service and the architecture of the hotel. Very close to the airport and conceirge level has alot to offer.
Beautiful mountain views as well, the only problem is the tile floors produce alot of noise when walking with luggage so be aware you might be awaken if you are close to elevator.

The hotel and its customer service were excellent, and, if you're coming here for a wedding (like my wife and I were) or because it's convenient to the airport, which it is, you'll be pleased with your choice. However, if you are here because you want to spend time in San Jose or are here for a business conference, probably not the best choice.

Room Tip: higher floors provide great views - we liked to see the city lit up at night and saw it, in the dist...

Like a lot of reviewers, we used the hotel as a first night entry into Costa Rica. It is 3 minutes from the airport and although less than a kilometer from a large tyre factory, you would never know it. A relatively new hotel is built in the classical Spanish Mission architecture and certainly evokes a bright sense of Spain. The walls are bright yellow and the floors are tiled with marvellous floral patterned tiles. The staff are very hospitable - plenty of smiles! The whole of the hotel is orientated towards the hills off the south and the grounds are sheathed from the surrounding commercial district by the vegetation.

Their are three or four dining options within the hotel which makes the stay here even more appealing: despite our late evening arrival we still ate in a restaurant where the food was very good.

The hotel does have a significant wedding catering business and on our Saturday night stay there were at least three weddings going on, but this certainly made the place buzz.

Plus: fabulous staff, restaurants, architecture

Minus: ostensibly it's a hotel airport which is a fair distance from San Jose or Escueza

Overall: probably the best airport hotel I have ever stayed at

This was our first stop on our 2 week honeymoon vacation. What a beautiful hotel. The room was very nice and we had a spacious balcony with a spectacular view! We were on the conceierge level, they had snacks and drinks available whenever we wanted as well as an incredible breakfast the next morning. I had the best Costa Rican coffee of life that morning. The pool was lovely and the hot tubs were actually hot! The woodwork and architecture at the hotel was stunning! This was just a stop over on our way to the J.W Marriott in Guanacaste, but I would have loved to have stayed an extra night and check out their spa!

My wife and I arrived in San Jose in the afternoon, but our connecting flight to Puerto Jimenez wasn't until the next morning. So, we had to spend a night in San Jose. After reading that downtown SJ is sort of sketchy and seeing that places such as Xandari are too far outside of town, we settled on the Marriott.

What a great choice it is. From the airport, you go through several non eventful industrial and high tech campuses. Once you turn off the main road to the Marriott, it truly is an oasis of calm. You would never know you're in the middle of a big city. You have great views of the mountains, a gorgeous coffee plantation and great tropical vegetation. The architecture is really historical Spanish (even though its a newer hotel). The grounds are beautiful and the rooms are very comfortable. We had dinner at the Tapas restaurant, which was delicious and they even gave us free samples of the 3 year aged serrano ham (yum!) In the morning, we used the gym, which is equipped with modern workout machines. We had coffee and empanadas at the little coffee shop, which were both very good. We used the pool a bit in the afternoon, but it was a little too chilly and rainy to lie out (not the hotel's fault). I'd highly recommend this hotel again for a quick stopover in San Jose.
