We loved that the room opened up to the pool and hot tub!

We had such a memorial experience. This was our first trip out of country since Covid and I have to say we were really impressed. The beautiful hotel, amenities, and friendly staff. We will definitely stay here again when we travel the country. The rooms were spacious, beds comfortable, and overall just a great day!

Front desk staff very friendly and helpful Airport shuttle service was the best I have ever experienced, on time, courteous. Beautiful hotel. Will stay again.

It was very nice to arrive late at night at the airport and have their free shuttle come pick us up. The hotel is only a few minutes from the airport which made it all very convenient for us.

I like that it had a spa available. Also, breakfast has a large selection and delicious

The property was in a great location and very comfortable.

The open air design of the property is not only functional but pandemic friendly. The pool area is picture perfect. This property gives Hawaii resorts a run for their money. Excellent value especially if you include the breakfast option. Pura Vida!!

Wonderful staff. Very nice rooms. Spacious Jr. Suite

Clean, staff is friendly and helpful, beautiful grounds and great location! We stayed here and took the shuttle to the airport. Very smooth stay through and through- Pura Vida

Beautiful setting, spacious rooms. And very kind staff.

The property was at one time a country club, and today that charm is still kept. The grounds are immaculately maintained. In the restaurant, server Ramon was so very professional and attentive. I come back to this property because of the treatment that I receive.

We paid for the room through orbitz and when we arrived at the property we were informed the hotel was full and they did not have a room for us even though we booked and paid in advance. They offered to put us at another Hilton but it was 20 min further away from the airport. We were very disappointed with this after a long day of travel.

It was a great place to stay for one night before going to the airport. Free shuttle every hour.

I've stayed here many many times since 2008, since even before it was a Doubletree. The hotel itself is still great, but since Hilton took over, a few things have changed for the worse. There used to be free wifi in the rooms and lobby for all guests, but now you either have to pay extra or be a member of an elite level of Hilton Honors. Secondly, they now charge for the airport shuttle, which used to be free. And finally, the air conditioner in my room (room #2015) did not work. The temperature in the room was 24C when I checked in. I set the thermostat to 18C, and in 4 hours the temperature only decreased to 22.5C. I called the front desk and they sent a technician, who claimed he fixed it and that it would take a hour or so to cool down to my desired temperature. I went out to dinner and when I returned, it had decreased to 22C. I went to bed and had an awful night sleep due to the warm room. When I woke up, the thermostat had decreased to 21.5C, but by then it was time for me to check out. So be forewarned, the air conditioner in your room may or may not work, and even if you call to have it fixed, it doesn't guarantee to solve the problem.

rooms have no fridge, poolside water & coke cost over $17 usd, It's a city setting, not what you'd expect for a Costa Rican Vaca... But nothing bad happened and the people were nice,

Staff was excellent! They were friendly, courteous and professional.
