My wife and I stayed here one night on our way to Puerto Jimenez. The hotel is beautiful and the staff are friendly, efficient, and helpful. The food and wine in the restaurant was excellent, though not inexpensive. The pool is large and quite nice. There are several good looking eateries and a fresh market within easy walking distance if... More

We stayed at the Doubletree Cariari for three nights after a week in Manuel Antonio. The hotel is great, very comfortable and the staff was excellent. However, I am taking one star off for not having FREE wifi and one star off for the horrible Dinner we ate in the dining room. Breakfast was amazing, but dinner suffered greatly. Not... More

We booked the DoubleTree as our airport transit hotel as we entered and exited Costa Rica. The hotel offers an airport shuttle for $20 each way (not per person), so we took advantage rather than taking our chances with the taxi line. They held a sign at the airport and were easily found. The lobby was beautiful and open air.... More
