I've been staying at this hotel for short pre-cruise stays for more than ten years, however this was a single destination stay of a week. The grounds are magnificant and service excellent. Small problems (non-working refrigerator) were remedied quickly. It is very difficult to find healthy food on the menus--even a chicken fillet sandwich would be an improvement. The Club Lounge had breakfast (including omelets Wed-Fri) and appetizers in the evening (although cilentro tended to dominate most offerings). My package included the buffet breakfast (which I believe was priced at $30 US) which was very nice (including omelet and smoothy stations), but not a good value in my opinion. In both the Club Lounge and the breakfast buffet, food in the chafing dishes generally was not hot. A resort of this grandeur should offer evening entertainment--a player piano in the upstairs bar/lounge was only playing once (and that was during the day). Pool attendants were responsive, although drink service seemed to take quite a while. Services in the new Spa building are subject to a 10% spa fee (although there was no resort fee). It's a beautiful, relaxing resort and well situation for touring and I will return.

Room Tip: If travelers are arriving by air, I would recommend pre-reservations with the hotel for transportation from the airport ($15 US) which is the same price as the airport taxi stand which could require a wait. Also, if travelers are departing by air, they can purchase the required Costa Rica exit stamp at the hotel (with a $5 US surcharge) and avoid lengthy lines at the airport. (At any case, it is necessary to have the exit stamp BEFORE check-in.)

My husband and i stayed one night at the Marriott to start off our Costa Rica vacation. It is located near the airport and had lovely grounds.

We enjoyed a late dinner in the tapas restuarant and nice breakfast in the temporary executive lounge. The executive lounge was closed for cleaning/renovation.

The staff was helpful and they also had a nice gift shop.

I would stay here again for a night or two when flying in or out of San Jose.

This is a very nice Hotel if you like "Hacienda Style" architecture.We stayed 4 Days, Service was great, all staff we encountered were super friendly & helpful. Hotel property well kept!

Our room was good (449) we had a nice balcony, not too impressed with the lock on the sliding glass door! Executive lounge was definitely worth the cost!

Down sides:
Essentially only one Restaurant (they do have a seperate Coffee shop that also serves Sandwiches) I was underwhelmed with the Menu, food always took a long time.
The Hotel has NO entertainment what so ever, it is somewhat isolated one cannot walk to another Restaurant, Night Club, Store, etc, this makes going out for a meal quite expensive (Taxi fares)
I was a bit shocked at the prices; everything carries a 13% tax and a 10% Service charge
Room US$ 200.00 (plus above) evening Main course in the Restaurant (either one) $ 25 - 30 plus, Glass of Wine / High ball $10.00 Beer $9.00 etc.

As I said nice Hotel, but... I probably would not stay there again because of lack of entertainment options and cost

Room Tip: 4th floor with Balcony is great

All the comforts of a Marriott resort with very convenient proximity to the airport. While the area around is very industrial (though some decent neighborhoods to the west for runners) the grounds are impeccable and facilities fully modern. The gym is excellent and the pools very pleasant. Staff are polite, though sometimes few and far between.

The gripes:
- The hotel can be loud at night. The format seems to carry sounds of doors and voices throughout the tiled halls, the wind can be fierce simply due to the geography and because it has event halls, if your timing is right you might catch a rowdy wedding that goes late into the night (as we did)
- the pool is frigid
- when we tried to find lunch at the coffee shop on a Sunday, they were out of the first 4 things we wanted... No salads at all, and limited ingredients for sandwiches. It was the night after a large wedding, but to run out of food was surprising.

Definitely recommend the hotel, especially if yoy want to get away of the city noise and pollution. It has all the needed accommodations, a coffee plantation that can be visited anytime and excelent service. Besides, the whole infrastructure is a marvelous colonial house-type.
