So you have one night in San Jose before you head out on your Costa Rican adventure. Stay here!

The rooms are spacious, there are several great restaurants and a wonderful outdoor patio to enjoy the evenings. Typical Marriott amenities: pool, room service, wi-fi (though you have to pay), a/c, ATM. The wine list extensive which I appreciate, albeit a bit pricey. One night they had a Mexican buffet which had an incredible amount of food and diversity. We left too early in the morning for our flights to sample breakfast, but if dinner was any indication, I'm sure it was nice,

This property has all rooms around a central courtyard which makes it feel like you're away from the noise of the city.

We loved the Marriott Hotel near San Jose. The city and traffic in San Jose are very stressful and this was the perfect place to unwind and relax before heading home. We stayed two days after visiting Dominical. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. It was expensive but worth it. Our room was standard but nicely appointed. The food was wonderful although rather pricey. If you're on a tight budget, this probably isn't the place for you but otherwise well worth the money. It was a perfect ending to our vacation.

Room Tip: Ask for a view overlooking the pool.

My family (two adults and a teen) chose this hotel as first stop in Costa Rica after our flight over the Atlantic Ocean and it is ideally located for this purpose, only 5 minutes by car from the airport and in a quiet although rather strange setting for a hotel (industrial zone). Nevertheless, it was quite a nice experience to arrive there because the building and the grounds are beautiful (hacienda style). Employees at the front desk are friendly and helpful but we had to wait quite a long time when checking in and out. We had booked two rooms of the cheapest category as we only stayed for one night. They were just like all the other rooms you usually find in a Marriott hotel meaning rather basic. This is the case most notably for the bathrooms, as one of the previous reviewers mentioned to the point, there are simple shower/bathtub combos. We had dinner at the tapas restaurant and were pleased with the offered food. As we were very tired we went to bed quite early (about 10 p.m.) which turned out to be not a very good idea as there was quite a hustle and bustle in the hallways (we were on the first floor to the front). I would recommend a room on an upper floor and maybe going to the rear (pool). We had breakfast on the porch which was pleasant and the buffet is worthwhile ordering. Overall, a good stop when flying in or off (the hacienda styled building is gorgeous), but I wouldn’t recommend it for a longer stay.

Room Tip: go for an upper floor

We had the opportunity to upgrade to an executive suite at check-in and we did. What a great room.. and the executive happy hour and breakfast were both delicious and worth the $50 upgrade (along with the wifi!). Great gym, beautiful pools.. such a nice little splurge after 80 days of more budget-range accomodations..

That said.. if we spent more than a day there it would have been pretty pricey to eat at the restaurants..

Room Tip: 440 was awesome..

We arrived at the hotel after a long flight from the UK via Newark tired and ready for a good nights sleep, and this was the place to provide it. The hotel and grounds are stylish and elegant. The staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfast was excellent. The rooms were spacious and well appointed with very nice bathrooms and comfortable beds. The only slightly jarring thing were the paper cups provided with the coffee machine - surely Costa Rican coffee deserves a china cup?

We stayed again on our way home and had time to use to pool, which is beautiful but chilly. We ate in the restuarant, we chose the buffet option which had a huge range of alternatives from traditional Costa Rican fare (including rice and beans, of course) through pizza and barbecue. Fabulous desserts.
