Nice hotel, 5 km from airport. Very good value for money. Nice poor area. Decent gym and quite good spa (from the looks). Very friendly staff. Rooms are spacious and clean. On the downside it has a casino...

I stayed for a couple of nights and found this to be a very good hotel. Lots of facilities and good sized rooms. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, especially in the restaurant. The pool area was very well kept as was the rest of the hotel. There is even a casino (I didn't go in) that looked...

Really liked this hotel. It was even more beautiful than my wife and I have imaged. The food was good and we only stayed one night. Unfortunately we could not use the pool as we went during the rainy season and it had been raining all day but it was a really nice stay none the less and a 10...

We stayed here for 2 nights, the beginning and end of our trip. I must say we were very pleased. The rooms are spacious, clean, and cozy. Ac works great. The breakfast was the best of the whole trip. Lots of options. We are coming back in 2 years and this will be our first and last stop.

Great hotel if you want to enjoy resort-alike amenities and be less then 30min from downtown San Jose (make that 1h+ in rush hour). Has great breakfast, a nice pool (not heated!), a casino and spacious rooms. 10min from airport as well. Would recommend, but just for a few nights.

It's a really neat layout. It was raining when we arrived, and we walked to our room realizing it was open air and full of gardens-very cool. Would absolutely stay again! Loved the jugo cas (pear juice) and breakfast was phenomenal. There's a casino (we don't gamble but the walk to eat was more enjoyable because of it) and we...

Hotel was very nice. We had a very late check in (1 am) and had no problems. Rooms were clean, and staff was friendly. We only stayed 1 night and left the next morning, but did get a chance to walk around hotel. The lobby of this hotel is really nice.

Spent 1 night preceeding and following our 9 night tour of Cosrta Rica. Our room had a bit of a musty smell and a call to reception and they immediately sent out a maintenance man to adjust the dehumidifier, correcting the problem. An afternoon at the pool bar to relax was in order, and the bar staff were very friendly...

Though here on business, the DoubleTree was a great place to stay. The hotel staff was most accommodating and helped with transportation, restaurants, etc. The on-site restaurants have a varied menu and the bar seemed to be stocked with the usual range, but also some local beers.

Hotel and location are nice, but in my opinion, not suitable for business travel, (far too hot in all common areas, as everything is open and kind of outside). Great hotel to visit with family and friends. Would recommend for any kind of vacation trip. Friendly staff and good breakfast buffett.
