I've been recently traveling for business to San Jose area and I got to stay in pretty much every hotel on that side of the city. Marriott is definitely the best, albeit the priciest. But it is truly worth extra dollars or colones. Hotel exterior and interior common areas are built in a very traditional way, but rooms and facilities are very modern. Rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, sheets, towels etc. are of quality appropriate for Marriott. Gym is well stocked with newer equipment, I never got to wait for a readmill because there were enough for everyone. View is unparalleled, especially if you get a room with a mountain view. Breakfast terrace allows you to enjoy that view even if your room is on another side. Breakfast food is good and with a good variety. There is small coffee and souvenir shop on the property, prices are either the same or lower than those at the airport. There is a small business services office, a nice lady helped me to reschedule my delayed flight. Other hotels in the area will get you a basic service and even sometimes more, but this one really makes you feel good! The hotel is about 7 min drive from the airport with no traffic, but could be 15 - 20 minutes during busies time of the day.

Dear bivni,

Thank you for your comments. We are delighted to know how your stay with us was pleasant and we hope, that you may stay with us many, many times during your business trips. If you liked the gym, here is a tip for your next visit: Try the areas at the spa, for only $10 per day, you can enjoy the sauna, the steam room and the private Jacuzzi for as long as you want, I personally love this, especially after a work out, some dinner and you'll be as good as new for the next day.

See you soon,

Adriana Mesen
Guest Relations Manager

A short cab ride from the airport and I was at the resort. The grounds were lovely. Staying by myself I was not thrilled to have a room on the ground floor. I was immediately moved by the friendly front desk staff and bellman. The restaurants were excellent but the bar was the best with its comfy sofas, great service and relaxing atmosphere. They even fixed a dish that I requested that was not on the menu. The spa was fabulous also. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with pool view on the backside of the hotel.

Remember that we will always accommodate to your needs, its is our goal to make you feel as home as we can, either by placing you in a different room, or making you a special dish to soothe your dietary preferences or simply because during a long stay you don´t really fell like ordering anything from the menu.

Hello joeywestpalmbeach,

Thank you for sharing your experience! Good food and good service and lots of great relaxing time is what you will definitely find here at all times.

Los Sueños is also wonderful, our sister property who decided to live by the sea.

Hope you join us soon and maybe stay here a little longer, there are lots of activities you can do around the rain forest, which is pretty close; zip line, waterfalls, trailing, the central markets, etc.

See you on your next adventure,

Adriana Mesén,
Guest Relations Manager

We enjoyed our breif stay here at San Jose Marriott Hotel before we drive to the pacific side to Los Suenos Marriott Resort. The service was impeccable and food was very fresh.

I almost prefer the food here than Los Suenos Marriott Resort, we had breakfast and lunch here, the quinoa salad was so refreshing and my husband had a garden salad it was good too. Breakfast we had egg, fruit and smoked salmon (pic shown). No complaints. Good food and great service. Will definitely come back!

Stayed: September 2015, travelled as a couple

Excellent Buffet breakfast with excellent service (by Sandra at Antigua). Nice view and great environment. Gallo Pinto and other food options were just delicious. You have several options for the breakfast, coffe is good and orange juice is just great.

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your comments.

We are glad you enjoyed our food, Gallo Pinto is certainly one of the preferred items from our menu it is number one dish in every tico's breakfast, sometime, we even have it for dinner with "natilla" or sour cream and of course salsa Lizano, did you try it? If not we need to get you a bottle.

Hope you had a good come back home,
