I visit San Jose often during the year. This is best hotel to start and end your journey. It close to the SJO airport and next to a Wal-Mart for all your jungle supplies and snacks. They provide a free shuttle to and from the airport. The hotel is a Marriott and meets all the high standards of US Marriott...

OK, it's a good-sized modern airport chain hotel...no surprises, and no negative comments either. Nothing about the property said "Costa Rica" - you could have been in any major US city! The staff was very cordial, the shuttle was efficient and friendly, the water was hot, the beds were comfy, and the property is located across the street from a...

Arriving to San Jose late in the evening, we needed a place to stay near the airport. This hotel is about 2 minutes by car from the airport and provides a free shuttle to and from. Very convenient location and free wifi. Perfect for those arriving to San Jose late in the day.

After we rented our car, this place was not too hard to find. I'm not sure what the transfer from the airport would be like, but we found parking in their back lot, and the car was secure. Beds were standard and comfortable, shower was spacious, and the morning breakfast was just what we needed to get our first full...

Great hotel to stay in close to the airport with free shuttle. Easy check in. Decent fitness center which included weights, treadmills and bikes. The restaurant is good and provided a variety of choices. The food prices were reasonable and it was nice to be able to order a beer.

The hotel was convenient from/to the airport which was the reason we chose to stay here. It served its purpose but without a car to get around, food options were limited, especially being vegetarians. We had an issue during breakfast with a mistake in labeling chicken empanadas as cheese and causing one of us in the group to accidentally consume...

Recently built modern hotel. I was there for a Conference for a couple of days. Rooms are nice, with frigo, coffee maker and tablet safe. Breakfast is ok, although sometimes one has to wait a long time for the waiters to refill the plates. We had a buffet lunch every days which was great. The pool is rather small, the...

Very comfortable room and good service. Free shuttle to the airport which is very close-by. If you are not familiar with the area, the hotel is a little difficult to find. Suggest providing some tips to find hotel.
