“Top lodging for business or relax”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

Someone could argue that this Marriott is not at San Jose´s city centre, but honestly, being just 15 minutes far from the airport, it has the best location to move around.
The stay was like living in an old large colonial villa but stylish, comfortable and modern. It has almost everything you need for a good mix between business and relax: wonderful subtropical atmosphere, two outdoor pools and large jacuzzi, fitness and a new Spa, driving range, running tracks.
Great infrastructure for business meetings, diversity of room sizes and equipment. There´s free wifi only in public areas but you are charged in your room....come on! , this is a service that has to be for free in such a hotel category.
The rooms are large, and the sleep quality is great. Amenities in the bathroom can certainly be improved.
It is a pleasant to walk in the inside backyard or around the hotel, everywhere is nicely furnished and decorated.
Two highlights : the magnificent breakfast and the service, really very kind people.
It was my second time at this Marriott and will stay again there with no doubt.

We spent one night, will certainly return. The grounds are spotless and an array of plants and flowers that are meticulously maintained. We ate in the courtyard, wonderful service and food to fit a kingly banquet. All with the sounds of birds and the wind in the palm trees. We love Marriott for their very comfortable beds, and this was no exception.
I must thank the concierge service for their attention and tips. This is a great place to stay, very near the airport so we turned in our rental car and saved a day's car rental, no reason to leave this property!

Room Tip: The ground floor rooms are wonderful with a table for two to enjoy the garden.

I was temporarily handicapped for the duration of my stay, and the service here was very accommodating. They were friendly, and always asking how they could help. My condition also limited travel options, so most meals were spent in the hotel. Not a mistake at all! Great food - especially the Argentinian buffet. I never left hungry.

We stayed 2 times in this hotel at our costa rica trip (at the begining and the end) and may say that this was the best sleep quality in all hotel's we have been to!

The breakfast was really good. The service great.
The lil cafe is perfect.

I dont had much time to do more things in hotel, but it was the best place I slept in Costa Rica!

What can I say? Absolutely nothing to complain about here, the rooms, staff, bar, restaurants, business services, local trip advisers, excursion companies are all excellent.

A fantastic week spent here on a business conference, unforgettable, the only downside was the pool being freezing cold in February, but I braved it anyway!

If only the Marriott's in the UK could replicate the quality and customer service they achieve here.

Room Tip: Rooms facing onto the pools have a great vista of the mountains

We stayed here for a couple of nights before exploring the rest of Costa Rica. I can't believe this is not a JW Marriott and only a regular Marriott. It's the nicest plain Marriott I have ever stayed at. Service is excellent throughout the property. Pools and hot tub are great. A mini soccer field with two goals, a basketball court, and more! Our kids are 8 and 9 so there was tons to do here on site. It's very secure with guards at the gate. The concierge lounge serves excellent breakfast with excellent service. I can't imagine anybody staying anywhere else in San Jose. Plus, you can take tons of day trips from here. I should add the location is isolated in that there is nothing close to walk to. There are some local shops and restaurants about a mile away (turn left out of the main gate) but nothing fancy that I notice (market, drug store, sushi restaurant, bank, etc...). We paid about $150 a night, which seemed high when I booked, but felt very worth it once here. Overall perfect stay!

Room Tip: Pool level rooms, with sliding doors to the pool, are only like $30 extra.

I stayed at this property for a 1 week vaction with two other friends. I used points to book my stay. The hotel is very charming and luxurious with large spacious rooms. Overall, it is a much nicer property than anything you would find in downtown San Jose. The outdoor pool and hot tub were very fun and had great scenery to look at. There is also a small driving range which looked nice (but i didn't use). I always felt very safe here and it is a bit secluded from the downtown area. I would definitely reccomend this hotel for business stays or as an overnight stay from the airport while en route to coastal resorts. We stayed here the entire week and booked ziplining, white water rafting, hot springs / volcano and other tours directly though the hotel. The only problem with this hotel as a vacation stay is that you will be doing a lot of driving to start get to/from your tours.
