First night stay in Costa Rica for very late arrival. Very friend staff, checked in very quick. One thing I hate stay the Marriott courtyard, because no breakfast included. The Walmart is just nearby to get everything needed and breakfast.

We had a delayed flight due to Hurricane Otto. We were tired from fighting with Volaris and getting nowhere. I booked off my tablet and we were picked up for free at the airport and upon arriving, we were treated like royalty. The guest services manager Nicolas heard about our dilemma (it was Thanksgiving...) and made us feel like we... More

Redeemed for a night to stay in Alajuela before an early flight back home. Amazing service overall. As an elite member booking I was immediately offered complimentary beverages on the spot, a preferred room on a higher floor and luggage assistance even though we only had small carryons.
