    Airport Hotel "Need I say more"

    Geared towards business traveler not intending to go out and see the country. A marketing machine who train their employees to encourage you to spend your money, only at there hotel. Requested several location nearby to either go eat, to visit or just a little local knowlege, but they were unable to provide any. On several occasions they attepted to talk us out of visiting their country. Was not impressed. While staying within the complex the employees were more than courteous.

    Everything was lovely at Cariari...the service at the resturant downstairs was terrible..alot of the staff was very noisy and didn't check up on tables nor take away dishes..not even the bread basket..nor ask if you wanted any refills, etc.. Poor, poor, poor, food service for such a nice place..I definitely would stay again for the extra clean an comfortable room and great Tico breakfast and price..

    Beautiful hotel with a staff that is anxious to please. Got in around 5 p.m. and left at 6 a.m. but our short stay was wonderful. Drinks at the pool bar, dinner at the restaurant. All was relaxing and fun.

    Would stay again....

    This is a great hotel to just kick back and relax if you have time to spare while in Costa Rica. What was great is it is about 10 minutes from the airport, which fit our needs - They do offer many daily adventures through a variety of companies, if desired. The grounds are immaculate, green, lush, and relaxing. Staff, all around from the service staff (restaurant, cleaning) to the front desk and other employees. Everyone was more than willing to greet you and offer assistance as needed. We needed to extend one night, and they gave us the same price we had originally booked[...] If in the city again, I would definitely stay again.

    There is a mall just down the street in case you have forgotten to pack anything. Very easy to get to and the hotel also has a shuttle, if you don't have a rental car.
