Although I stayed here for work, it is a very beautiful hotel and I could stay here if i was on vacation. It used to be a coffee plantation so its big and sprawling with several nature walks on the grounds. The restaurants are very nice but the service is excellent. The pools were a bit cold but the gym and spa were top notch. My only complaint could be that the hotels houses several groups in the 2 weeks I was there it was a large coffee company, a huge wedding, and a drug company. It is not the fault of the hotel but the guests can get loud by the hotel handled it professionally.

We stayed here for two night as part of a Costa Rica tour. This is a modern hotel on the outskirts of San Jose and within a few minutes of the airport. The rooms are spacious, the food is good and the staff very helpful and friendly. Some noise does echo from the corridors to the rooms due to the hard floors.

We used this hotel for our first and last nights in Costa Rica. It's close to the international airport, and fairly close to Tobias Bolanos, the airport that NatureAir uses.

This is a classy property in a beautiful setting - lovely building with attractive Spanish colonial central courtyard and very comfortable rooms with good beds and quality bedding. The food in the restaurants was tasty, the breakfast buffet costly but excellent, worth it.

Negatives:
- The attractive but cold pools, which were quite the shock to the system after heated pools in most resorts and the beautifully warm ocean water.
- The costly internet access and separate charge for computer use. Surely the Marriott can provide free wifi at the rates they charge.

Being an American hotel in cooler San Jose, the Marriott serves as a good transition from the hot hot Pacific and whatever cold destination you have to return to.

Room Tip: If you like to be close to the pool, what seems like the ground floor (actually 2nd floor), the pool...

The Marriott was an excellent venue for our conference and a wonderful place to relax. My room was well-appointed and clean, with a beautiful view from the window. I found Goldilock's bed in my room, but there was nothing "just right" about the luxurious bath. The large tub and copious amounts of hot water encouraged self-indulgence.

The hallways and public rooms are partially open to the outside, allowing fresh air to the inside and unobstructed views to the outside. The central courtyard is open to the sky. Series of arched openings in the walls allow convenient access between the dining rooms, conference rooms, and halls to the hotel rooms.

Breakfast consists of a vast array of foods - pastries, fruits, eggs, meats, cold and hot drinks - indeed, more than I can remember. Service was generally excellent and friendly, although our group was large and occasionally overwhelmed hotel staff. This led us to a more leisurely approach to breakfast and lunch that is normal for North Americans, a positive change for most of us.

The Marriott has earned its excellent reputation. Should the opportunity to visit arise, do it!

Very nice rooms, lots of space, comfortable beds, modern updated bathrooms. Food is excellent, breakfast buffet is incredible - everything you could ever want, hot and cold - omelettes made fresh, oatmeal, nuts, fruit, eggs, meats, cheeses, fresh juices, fresh fruit, pastries... Lovely to sit outside and have a view of the volcanoes in the distance. Friendly helpful staff. It is removed from the city, so not a central location, and couldn't really walk off the property to anywhere. But very quick to get anywhere you need to go. Was here on a business trip, and would certainly consider it for a holiday if I return to San Jose.

Room Tip: End of hall on higher floors - tiled floors can echo a bit so being away from busy areas helps keep...

We stayed here about 14 years ago and it is pretty much the same which is a good thing. It is right in the middle of a coffee plantation and is also very pretty. The rooms are pretty basic but the grounds are spectacular.
