Davidtravels stayed here on Sep 23, 2010 during their trip titled: David Travels.
Well, we made it!! Our flight landed about 6PM CR time. (which is 8PM) your time. Our flight was fairly uneventful. We did actually get food on the plane (lasagna or chicken with a salad). We all chose Lasagna. Everyone was starving so we actually ate airplane food. I know that if any of you guys would have been travelling with us you would have …
I have finally arrived in Costa Rica! The flight was pretty short, but I was able to decide which beach I'm going to tomorrow and study a little Spanish,which left my brain the second I tried to speak to someone. Luckily this country loves their tourists so pretty much everyone does speak English, which is definitely helpful now but eventually I'm …
... circle to point where you dug. Put special sand in as a liquid is there where the mother dug the hole. Played Cards and then had lunch and dinner (rice and beans and veg). Played cards also after. Had a turtle shift 10-12 in the evening. We then found a mother laying eggs in the sand sober collected the eggs and dug a hole in the hatchery to put them in. Got to bed mosquito bites ...
... brought us as a gift. For me an ice cold glass of water was something I'd been hankering after for weeks. I remember reading 'One Hundred Years of Solitude' and them discovering the invention of ice for the first time - I now understood the wonder, as something that I would normally take for granted brought so much pleasure in the heat of the jungle. There were cravings amongst the group for other things too and much bartering amongst everyone; I even held a silent auction for a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Costa Rica Marriott Hotel San Jose San Antonio De Belen
Definitely 5 Stars!
This is hands down the BEST Marriott we have stayed at worldwide. The hotel grounds are incredibly beautiful. The staff is excellent. The rooms are very attractive, of moderate size and very clean. We loved the negative egde pool, Spanish style architecture of the hotel, open courtyard and 4 restaurants to choose from. We cannot say enough about this hotel that has its own dedicated travel agency who will plan tours and day trips for you with great, and more importantly, reputable companies (we had a bad experience at another hotel). We absolutely will return to Costa Rica only next time we will spend all our time at this hotel rather than split it at two like on this visit.
Marriott is simply the best
We stayed at the Marriott in San Jose for a week, and it was spectacular. The grounds are beautiful, the staff is friendly, and the restaurants were terrific. The rooms were spacious and the beds very comfortable. The on-site travel service made it easy for us to get around the country with English-speaking guides, and it was very inexpensive to take half or full day tours. I have nothing but praise for the Marriott, as they made the stay extraordinary!
An absolute jewel
We've visited this Marriott 3 times. We would NOT miss it when we return to Costa Rica.
Despite being very close to the airport and in an industrial area of the city, once you get to this San Jose Marriott, you totally forget where you are. It is secluded, quiet, beautifully landscaped ... and the decor & ambience of the hotel makes you feel like you just landed in an exclusive, wealthy Spanish mansion.
The service is BEYOND impecable! They treat you like queens and kings at this hotel.
And, don't miss their open-air lounge. My husband & I have lolled away hour after hour just soaking in the cool breezes from the surrounding mountains at this lounge.
San Jose retreat
Excellent hotel, dining in the courtyard was wonderful. Great views of the coffee plantation. Don't miss the hidden outdoor whirlpool behind the spa. Only complaint is that tile floors causes sounds travel through the hallways and into the room a bit.
Not your average Marriot
5 star luxury - 5 star service -beautiful grounds and buildings- nice rooms -great food . I could easily compare this place to a Four Seasons or a Ritz Carlton in the states - not your average costa rician experience but an awfully nice place to stay when in San Jose. A bargain for the money
Live is Good
The Marriott San Jose is fantastic. Located 10 minutes from the Airport .This hotel is built like a Giant Hacienda. Extremely clean , Great staff, and relatively reasonably priced. Great hotel to start and end your trip to Costa Rica.
The 'way' in San Jose
My wife and I used the San Jose Marriott as our base to explore the central valley of San Jose. Our six day visit was was eventful thanks to the travel planner TAM on site and always wonderful to come back each evening to the Marriott. The hotel offers guests, thanks to the staff and accomadations, a truly 5 star experience in Costa Rica.
Like a Spanish Hacienda
A gorgeous hotel in a lovely setting
Top choice for San Jose
Whether it's just an overnight on arrival in Costa Rica, or a base for exploring San Jose and surrounding area's, this is always my first choice. The location is excellent, and the view is mostly of nearby coffee plantations. The staff are very friendly, and the buffet breakfast is to die for! This is not your typical Marriott, it is a colonial building with real Costa Rica flavor, and is of world class standard.
This was an amazing hotel. I have stayed is in some beautiful spots and this ranks right up there. Service is terrific. Very nice breakfast buffet. Some wonderful amenities include a gorgeous dining area, beautiful pool and hot tub area, very helpful concierge service that is available extended hours. I really recommend this highly. One note, we traveled during a high traffic time, Christmas break and it was impossible to get a room reservation for the beach or a car to rent. So book well ahead of time for those things.
