3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great room. Location in a modern complex that is very cold feeling sterile and expensive. Also hotel allows taxi drivers to take clients places without meter on. Consequently we paid at least 10$ more than meter rate to where we had to go. (We took a cab back from same site with meter on ) Comfortable room great breakfast included

Our recent stay here was exceptional.The friendly staff spoke English and took care of our needs. The hotel is located on a very nice plaza with shops and restaurants. The restaurant staff including, Paula, Marlen, Mayi, Kath, Jose, Ronny, Karol, Juan and bartender Joice were friendly, attentive and fun. We were introduced to the chef and provided a complimentary desserts.The complimentary morning breakfasts were excellent! The hotel rooms were clean and very comfortable. We highly recommend this Residence Inn.

The room is comfortable with an all-inclusive furniture (electrostove, microwave, fridge & dishwasher). All the staff has a great service attitude and friendly. Also, the hotel provides swimming pool next to the gym.

This is a very nice place to stay, all the staff are friendly and helpful. They do team building with their employees so they all work together to make your stay a very pleasant experience. I compliment my new friend Joice the bartender who taught me the meaning of “Pura Vida, mai”. ! Many fun day trips, do not miss the Arenal Volcano and especially the Hot Springs!! The absolute best hot springs and beautiful gardens anywhere in the world!!

We had to visit the hospital CIMA in San Jose, CR and the care we recieved while there was amazing. People kindly spoke to us in good English. They were caring and concerned and at this nearby hotel and we were so well taken care of. We were able to rest ( which was what was needed) and enjoy a wonderful free breakfast each morning. The man at the front desk was extremely helpful and thoughtful. The next day the lady at the front desk was most kind also. The hotel was extremely clean and well kept. I would recommend it to any one. Thank you again for the good rest and food we were able to have there. Our taxi was waiting for us just ahead of the time we needed it and the front desk arranged it for us which was so helpful. I walked the streets nearby and felt so safe there and there was so much to see too. I would certainly tell people of this amazing hotel.

I have nothing but great things to say. We easily arranged with the hotel for airport pickup before leaving the states and were a little apprehensive about finding our driver. He greeted us outside the baggage claim with a sign with our name and the ride to the hotel was 30 dollars. Very unstessful way to arrive into Costa Rica for our vacation. The hotel staff was extremely friendly, the rooms very comfortable, extremely clean and well appointed. My son stayed on the sofa bed and it was quite comfy. Having the kitchen available was great but we did not use it because we were only there for one night. The complimentary breakfast was outstanding - lots of American options like cereal, wAffles and eggs, but many local choices too such as gallo pinto, fresh fruit, juices and sausage. Lots of restaurants and shops in walking distance - the hotel is part of Plaza Escazu. Great area for kids, there was a small playground at the back of the plaza and large sculptures within the plaza for the kids to enjoy. Good way to transition from US to Costa Rica- several US shops and restaurants nearby. That may be a good or bad thing- we struggled a bit with seeing a PF CHANGS right by the hotel! We would absolutely stay here again and recommend to others.

A great overall trip! Being our first trip to Costa Rica and on a medical tour, we were a little uncertain what to expect. The staff here is top notch. Paula, Ronny, Joice and Natalia to name a few. Great people that made our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Everyone is helpful and has a smile on their face. We felt right at home and the rooms were kept clean and stocked. I would definitely recommend this location, very clean and safe in the surrounding area.

they do everything for you and your good stay. They work hard and always with a smile and helpful manners. ALL of them!! They recognize you, you are not a number they are simply the best I have seem in my business trips!!! Kath, Sandy, Gaby, Joice, Jona, Paula, Marlen and many others!!!

I have stayed in various Mariott properties across US and other locations but the service provided by the staff in this property has been truly out of the world. Starting form the check in process with Montse who was very friendly and very helpful . The House keeping lady Suhey did her job to perfection the room was always clean and each time she checked with me if anything else needs to be done on the cleaning front. Both of them did their job with a Big smile on their face . Also the Managers in the hotel were very friendly. One of the very customer friendly staff and great location of hotel. If I get a chance to come back to Costa Rica I would defiantly prefer this place. Home away from Home. Cheers guys keep up the great work.

We were in the middle of relocating to another country, so we decided to stay 9 nights here once our house had been vacated. What a great choice! Clean rooms, comfortable beds, great breakfast, perfect location with awesome restaurants and shops at walking distance...but most of all, awesome service by everyone, in particular, Joice and Ronny at the bar and Suhey at housekeeping. Thanks for everything!
