OK, I know I'm going against the grain here but this is one of the noisiest places I've stayed in a long time. We arrived mid-morning from a tiring ride and looked forward to a soothing stay in a lovely-looking place with all the standards one expects from a Marriott property. First impression: music playing really loudly all over the...

The staff were very friendly and helpful when we were there. However, I left a nightie behind. I wrote to them straightaway to say I would be returning to pick it up in two weeks' time. There was no sign of a nightie. What happened to it?

This hotel is perfectly situated to stay a night before your flight home from San José, also because it serves breakfast from 4:00 a.m. and a quick transfer (every half hour) to the airport is included in the room rate. The rooms are "practical", quite small, but everything you need is there (a/c, fridge, hairdryer etc.). The apprentice at the...

We toured around Costa Rica for a week or so and scheduled this Courtyard to stay at the night before flying out. We arrived early - around noon, the staff accommodated us and checked us into our rooms early anyway. They also suggested a few things to do as we had the afternoon free – one of which was an...

We love the location for getting to and from the airport, food is excellent. The breakfast starts at 4:00 AM. We had a quiet room, beds are comfy, seems to work best to take an orange taxi to the hotel from the airport and the shuttle to the airport. The taxi is $5.00, takes 5 minutes. If you have a...

The rooms are spacious and clean. We checked in before the prescribed time but our room was ready; also, check out for us at 12:30 PM which was very convenient, since our flight was at 4PM. There is a shuttle service to the airport, which is 3 min away. The hotel is next to a Walmart, which is quite expensive,...

Free shuttle runs every half hour to and from the airport about 5 mins away. Nice restaurant onsite with good options but a bit pricey. You can also go across the street to a small mall where there is a food court open late with several good options. Rooms are clean, a great fitness room with free weights and several...
