We are glad you had a pleasant stay with us and enjoyed our breakfast; in Costa Rica we are privileged to have fruits all the time and want to share them with our guests, we hope you also tried Gallo Pinto, one of our local favorites. Next time you visit San Jose we will be waiting for you.

Me, an adventurous, young at heart, 80+ years old, and five companions decided on this hotel after reading the comments and personally contacting Mr. Adolfo-Carit, the general manager. We were not disappointed; the size of the hotel (not too big and overwhelming) and the personal communication and attention of the staff, made for an over the top stay. A great breakfast every morning, a special shout out to Gabriel and the other breakfast staff. We highly recommend the Courtyard San Jose Escazu in Costa Rica.

Room Tip: I would suggest requesting a room on the top floor in the back, away from highway, where you will en...

The hotel is currently under construction and the smell of paint and ether was tremendous. My room the first night was directly above the the area being worked on and the fumes gave me an instant headache. I requested that my room by moved but was told that they were unable to move it because the hotel was full. The room was immediately adjacent to the elevators, which was noisy, and likely the reason the fumes were so bad. The room as switched the second night, but I was put on the other side of the same hallway. Ridiculous. I was also disappointed with the breakfast buffet, as I waited a lengthy time to get service. In fact, I could have eaten and left and nobody would have known the difference. The internet connection service provider had blocks in place that would not allow me to connect to my company VPN, so I couldnt really get a connection that was needed for my business travel in either room. Just an overall poor experience, and its too bad for a hotel that has some good potential. Too many other options to think that I would be back. Thanks.

I stayed at the Courtyard San Jose Escazu for one week and had a very enjoyable stay. The location of the hotel is great with plenty of nearby restaurants and a shopping mall all in walking distance. The hotel facilities were very nice and modernized. I was very pleased with my room - which faced away from traffic so noise was not a problem. Internet speed was sometimes slow, but overall OK. Breakfast was included and was quite enjoyable - I really enjoyed the Gallo Pinto which is a common Costa Rican dish of rice and beans. I was very pleased with my stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from road traffic.

The Courtyard by Marriott in San Jose is a great value - I paid a rate of less than 80$ per night and tehre's a great swimming pool, restaurant, parking facility and free Internet included. This is in a great neighborhood very close to the Multiplaza and some nice restaurants with Argetinian, Mexican, French, Suisse or an Outback restaurant in walking distance.
This hotel is absolutely clean with huge rooms, very nice beds and bedding with 5 pillows in a kind-size bed, flat screen TV and of course a/c. Very friendly service and a great value.

The sliding door in my room did not close properly so I had the noise of the busy roads all night long and the wind was blowing my curtains and making howling noise.
The maids in the morning slammed the doors and chatted loudly as early as 8:00 am...
The food for dinner was awful. I returned my quesadilla and left.
The personnel look like deers in a headlight most of the time..
Not a good experience nd not worth the money I spent.

Room Tip: Make sure your sliding door isolates your room from the incessant traffic.
