Courtyard by Marriott San Jose Airport Alajuela

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Our family of four has stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott San Jose Airport Alajuela hotel multiple times. It is our go-to hotel for the overnight stay in San Jose. The shuttle service to/from the San Jose Juan Santa Maria airport is always on-time and friendly. This hotel is top notch. The staff is always helpful and the chef at the delicious restaurant even comes out to greet us after our supper. The rooms are spotless and comfortable. The pool and exercise room are clean and current. The hotel is close to the airport, so there are no worries about getting to the airport late. We will stay again and again.

Convenient, congenial and hospitable staff, great restaurant

My flight was delayed so my mom called to let them know we would be late. Check in was over at 12 and shuttle at 1 am. We arrived to the airport past 1:10 am and they were waiting for us with shuttle and at the front desk. It was nice after a 2 hour delay to be taken care of .

We stayed here because of the close proximity to the airport and also Budget/Apex rental car company. The hotel is nice and is right next to the Wal-Mart and also a strip mall. Also, the hotel has a restaurant and bar. The room was clean and very quiet and comfortable. The mattress was a little on the firm side, but comfortable enough. I would recommend this hotel.

Nice hotel great friendly staff. Excellent breakfast. Clean rooms and good work out facility

Wonderful stepping and out point to enjoy Costa Rica

It's ok, breakfast should have more variety. Walmart is very close, you can walk and is 2 minutes from the hotel. Also the Plaza that is in the front offers some bars and restaurants, so you can have a good meal.

We booked here last minute as my two-year-old son was not enjoying his time in San Gerardo de Dota and we decided to stay closer to SJO for our last night in Costa Rica. This was a really nice, newer hotel, and the rooms were in great shape. They had a manager's reception the night we were there and everyone was very nice. As for location, it's very convenient to the airport, there are a number of (pricey) restaurants across the street, and there is a Wal-Mart next door. The hotel is otherwise somewhat isolated from the surrounding area, which isn't a bad thing. There is a gated parking lot in the back as well.

It was a very nice hotel! I loved it there... Very Clean and modern! I would recommend this hotel to all of my friends... There was also a Walmart Right next door!!

We arrived late in the night. but the staff was accommodating. The complimentary breakfast was delicious. Overall great for a quick stay.

walkable to grocery next door and places to eat across the st. good option for close airport stay that is not too expensive.

Great hotel! Rooms were very clean and had comfortable beds. Staff very friendly and check-in/out process was smooth. Great place to stay if you have an early flight the next day. Very close to the airport and hotel provides free shuttle service. Would stay here again!

Staff were friendly and accommodating. We had a spur of the moment decision of staying in the city prior to heading to our destination and this hotel was perfect for that kind of thing. Will definitely recommend to families and friends travelling to Costa Rica

Spent the night before leaving to go back to the U.S.

This hotel exceeded our expectations, it was tastefully decorated and very comfortable for a quick stay before catching a flight back home.

Stayed night before flying home. Quite comfortable.

Good overnight stay for early morning airport departue. The staff was pleasant and the room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Hotel shuttle is a plus, but check for pick up and departure atimes at desk. Although it is a huge store, the Walmart next door is a good place to buy coffee, airplane snacks and water. The restaurant in the hotel is just OK as well as the Mexican restaurant across fron the hotel. I was alone so I didn't venture out in a Taxi for dinner. If I had company I would have looked elsewhere in Alajuela to eat.

Hotel was very well situated near the airport. Good Restaurants and Walmart within walking distance - close to golf Cariari, mall, and walking to restaurants.

Great option couple minutes with a shuttle from the airport. However, shuttle drivers some times not too friendly. Sadly, this observation can be made when it's all about tips now without the effort of service. As a wellness retreat owner in Costa Rica I hate to see signs of Tips Welcome, etc. Just do you job and tips will come.

This hotel is the perfect place to spend the night before going to the beach cities of Costa Rica. The location is right near the airport and very inexpensive. They also have a shuttle that picks you up from the airport as well. I would stay there again.
