My dad works for Marriott so I have been staying at Marriott's for a very long time. I always have a high expectation for the amenities and staff when I check in but my expectations aren't always met. However, that certainly is not the case with this Marriott. My expectations were well exceeded.
Usually when staying on an employee rate, I am given the least desirable room in the hotel. However, when the front desk agent learned we were celebrating my birthday, without hesitation, she gave us a large room with an incredible view.
Fabian in the coffee shop shared with us the rich history of coffee plantations in Costa Rica and specifically the history of the coffee plantation that was previously where the Marriott now stands. He not only made us the best traditional Costa Rican coffee we have had, but he served us a wealth of knowledge and pride of his home country as well.
We weren't able to take advantage of the amenities aside from the hot tub, which was very well designed with slanted backs to optimize relaxation, but we enjoyed the ambiance of the hotel.
We live in Costa Rica and have decided to make this Marriott our "staycation" place of choice. We look forward to returning in a few months.
