... 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 ...

... maintenance is called vampirazo which is where a stake is driven through the stem of the plant to kill it! Bananas should arrive at the destination completely green. When they reach the destination they will be put in ripening rooms where cold air (14 degrees) that contains 300ppm ethylene will be circulated. By day 6/7 after this process has begun the bananas should be around colour 3 (see photo). Supermarkets want to buy bananas that are around colours 3/4 and ...

... mama'. After a quick embrace, and even quicker introduction, we walked further down the street to where 'mi papa' could stop to park. He had been doing laps as there were no parks anywhere. We piled into the car and then took our first deep breaths of happiness.

We had to take the long route home as on a Wednesday and Thursday, number plates that end in 5 and 6 (Papa's car) are prohibited from driving on the freeways! The ...

Day Two

The sun rises around 5:00 a.m. here and sets around 5:30 p.m. We had planned the night before to do our hour speed walk first thing in the morning. Much to my surprise we woke early enough and didn't feel too tired to get ourselves motivated to walk. We left the hotel around 7:00 a.m. or so and walked the city streets. Most of our walk was on the pedestrian mall and I titled the walk our "dodge walk". We had to maneuver our way ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Costa Rica Marriott Hotel San Jose San Antonio De Belen

    Definitely 5 Stars!

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Absolutely FIRST-RATE.

    San Jose retreat

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Wonderful Hotel

    from

    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.
