I stayed here one night on my way to other regions in Costa Rica. It is a quite close to the airport which is nice. Although it is a city hotel, it feels much like a resort. The pools and hot tub are nice and there is a driving range and putting green. There were some issues with the internet, but their technical support was able to get me on line relatively quickly. Breakfast buffet was good.

Stayed: June 2013, traveled with family

Stayed one night at the Costa Rica Marriott before our tour of the country! Best choice we could of every made. We were greeted by the friendliest of staff. Loved the look of the hotel, more like an European feel. And the property was breathtaking! Got a nice room at the end of the hall, so we did not hear any additional noise in the hallways! Food there was excellent. Did the spa and enjoyed the treatments and the facilities. Dry Sauna could have been hotter and the hot tub could have been hotter, in fact it felt very cool like pool water. I overheard 2 men talking about how cold the outdoor pool was, so I didn't even attempt to swim there! The bakery on the premises was to die for! Very tasty treats. Would definitely recommend if you need a hotel near the airport!

Room Tip: get a room at the end of the hallways to reduce noise.

Arrived at hotel about 6:30pm. We had arrived in San Jose that morning and gone straight to our meetings. End of the day and we were very tired, only to find out from the desk agent that they had overbooked the hotel and had no room for my group. (Our travel department maintains they had called to confirm the reservation that morning).

The staff made a reservation for us at the airport court yard Marriott, for which I was thankful. However that left us traversing rush hour traffic and the opportunity to enjoy a very much down market hotel with a view of the neighboring Walmart (literally).

Summary: Bad management decision and poor customer service... Though I didn't get past reception.

We stayed here for one deciding reason: the ability to get dinner late (24 hour room service if needed) if our long flights were delayed. We did make it in time to eat at the restaurant, as it just closing for the evening and dinner was very tasty.

We asked for a quiet room since the luggage wheels on tile hallway floors are quite loud and they put us far from the noise, which was fantastic. The grounds are pretty; there was a beautiful wedding/reception taking shape; and when my son and I ventured out of the gates to the left to go for a run, we found a neighborhood with people walking their dogs, going for runs, cyclists heading out, a whole Saturday morning landscape. (Be careful the first couple hundred yards as there are no sidewalks.)

We thought this Marriott did a very nice job of what they do (i.e., fairly large property resort that's part of a global brand.)

Room Tip: For quiet, a high floor and FAR FAR FAR from the elevators.

We stayed at the hotel twice, once for business and once for family fun. Both were excellent. Everyone from the GM to the Spa Manager and staff, to Mario in sales and the exec lounge staff were great. They even signed a card for my birthday. My family especially was pleased and look forward to going back again! Thanks to all at the San Jose Marriott !

Room Tip: Be sure and visit Tortuga Island!

A goood hotel... nice installations and great employees doing all they can to make your stay as good as possible.
A little far from downtonw which is good for some of the tours. But reduce the options for restaurants and nightlife.

Stayed here for one night prior to flight to Drake Bay. The hotel is in a great location, lots of outdoor area. Loved just spending day walking around property, flowers, birds, wonderful grounds. They have a big wonderful pool, and large nice hot tub. The service/staff was amazing, from check in all the way thru check out. Everyone was nice/polite, helpful, great great staff. Best place to stay if you need to stay in around San Jose area, I actually wish i had more days just to stay around the hotel and relax, etc. Good food, very nice restaurant, cafe, and shop. Will spend my first night here again next time traveling to Costa Rica.

Room Tip: Higher floors give you great views of trees for viewing birds.
