A typical corporate offering from Hilton, this hotel is just 10 minutes from the airport and just off the main drag. Although you wouldn’t know it as it was surprisingly quiet. On check in, the staff were smiley and professional – a nice touch was the gift of a couple of warm cookies. Our room over looked the pool and...

After a quick overnight in a sterile, cosmopolitan downtown hotel this was refreshing, to say the least! Charming hacienda-like atmosphere, lovely pool, roomy, amazing pillows/mattresses (that means a great deal to seasoned travelers!). Restaurant is good, staff is helpful, close to airport. Beautifully landscaped and the hotel is laid out in such a way that it makes it feel intimate...

Lovely resort like setting , great location. We have a family - little kids and a dog - saying right in downtown is a HUGE hassle in Costa Rica - DONT DO IT. Not unless you are single or a couple and don't have your car with you. This is right on a main artery to travel in and around...

I have to say that the Double Tree was a great place to start our adventure in Costa Rica. We've never been to the area and wanted a taste of several different regions. The hotel itself was clean and hotel staff was helpful and gracious with my horrid attempts at the language. Minor issues included no bottled water left in...

Good points: Large comfortable room with good coffee making and large TV, bathroom with large walk in shower, quiet, attractive layout around large pool, convenient for the airport, friendly greeting at front desk...and a biscuit.

This was a good place and location. The property is a great property that is a great location. I love that the room has tile floor and not carpet. I think cleanliness is easier this way. The individual balconies are awesome! Was not satisfied with the staff response to couple problems I had, but overall I would go there again.

We spend two nights here each time we visit Crocodile Bay / Osa Peninsula. The staff at the Melia Cariari is professional, efficient and gracious. Although there are several good restaurants nearby, we have always chosen to eat at the restaurant / bar poolside and have never been disappointed.

The DoubleTree in Belen is an awesome hotel. Like all Hilton hotels, the customer service is exceptionally wonderful. I stayed in a 2 bedroom suite which was large and comfortable. There were televisions in each bedroom as well as the common area. My only gripe is the room did not have heat, only AC. San Jose is warm year round...
