“Another excellent stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

I think I've stayed at the Costa Rica Marriott 4 times now and each has been pretty much perfect. The location is stunning, the staff are friendly and helpful, and the experience is always great. I hope to be be back soon...

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the front (drive) area. The views out back are better.

Visited this hotel last week and I had an awesome time . This hotel is absolutely gorgeous and looks exactly like the pictures . The staff was always courteous /helpful and there were many activitites to choose from where transport and meals were included giving you a great value for your money . The gym was also spacious and had excellent equipment to give you a total body work out . Food was exquisite and you must try the Risotto and scallops at Restaurant Argentina.

Overall - Great Experience and I would definitely return

I recently stayed at this property the night before an early morning flight back to the United States. The hotel grounds are beautiful and relaxing with a nice outdoor pool and it is conveniently located about a 10 minute drive from the airport.

The staff was helpful, courteous and expedient. I am a Platinum member so was given access to the Executive Lounge which was open on a Sunday night. They had plenty of food, only complaint is that the food was taken away around 7:30 p.m. even though the lounge was open until 11pm and the lounge was still very busy with guests watching a football game and conversing. The service was also painfully slow -- took over just under 30 minutes to order and be served a margarita.

The rooms were typical Marriott -- comfortable beds and spacious -- slightly old bathroom and small but still big enough for two people to get ready in the morning.

Room service was open 24 hours with a lot of choices for late night dining and was also fast and served by courteous wait staff. The food also tasted excellent.

Check out was very early -- so perhaps this was the reason -- but after waiting 20 minutes for a bellman to help us with our luggage and after calling twice for assistance, we just bucked up and carried all of our luggage ourselves.

This was the third Marriott we stayed at on this trip -- it was the least favorite of them all but considering this was more a business/airport hotel -- it was quite impressive and relaxing.

This was our third Costa Rican Marriott, and we had high expectations. Unfortunately, this hotel was a little disappointing. The lobby is very lovely and welcoming, and the layout of the hotel is appealing, with courtyards and landscaped gardens. The pools and hot tub were very nice, if unexceptional. The gym was fabulous! Our room looked tired, and was similar to a generic Marriott room in the US- fine, but not great. We noticed a trail of vomit from our hallway down to the second floor, which was not cleaned up for at least a day! This was quite disgusting. Service was fine, although a shuttle to the airport would be appreciated. Overall this hotel is on par with your average Marriott, with nicer architecture and lobby.

This hotel is a treat, an opportunity to stop the jungle adventures and just enjoy a couple of days of luxury. The beautiful grounds and rooms have a very authentic Spanish colonial feel. It's very close to the airport which makes it perfect for the 'night before early flight home' stay. If you arrive early enough in the day you can take a tour of the coffee plantations in the Central Valley straight from the hotel.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The Hotel is very nice, staff is excellent on all levels.

Very nice pools and landscaping in the back. Jacuzzi was very nice too. The water could be a few degrees warmer, the kids enjoyed it. The hotel was outside the downtown area of San Jose, but close to the airport. Nice Decor throughout the hotel.

Not much more I can say, but I will go back to this hotel when I go to Costa Rica.

Room Tip: Try to avoid the Golf course side of the hotel to avoid the extra walking to the main section of the...
