For a free night stay this was more than comfortable. Spacious Hilton standard room,, through the bathroom was typically dated Hilton style. Wish they would change their bathroom designs. But the building was beautiful. Open and Airy, set in lovely greenery, and designed for a tropical climate. Liked it and would come back

I spent 3 nights at this hotel, and was impressed with the room size, cleanliness, amenities and food. It's conveniently close to the airport yet no plane noise. Every meal eaten in the restaurant was delicious and high quality food. Plenty of both local and traditional meal options. The pool was lovely with ample amount of lounge chairs. The gym...

Nice hotel with great pool area an good food with spacious, clean rooms but starting to be dated. Good service. I liked the little casino with the "bingo style" roulette. Conveniently located near the airport.

Stayed here after flying into SJO for one night and had a good experience. Rooms were comfortable and the pool area was great. Front desk was very helpful and offered to assist with money exchange. There is a little area less than 5 mins away walking with various restaurants. We did eat dinner at the hotel which was just okay...

Personal at the entrance who doesn't say hello, personal at the reception who doesn't say hello, goodbye, or even look at you if they decide to respond you. Very bad experience, I had the impression that they didn't treat me as a human being deserves.

This is our third stay here at the Double Tree. The 2 bedroom suite is perfect for families. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The pool area is just fabulous!!! Every employee was extremely helpful and accommodating. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Costa Rica.

This property is located about 6 miles from the center of downtown San Jose - closer to the international airport. It is very convenient both to the city and to the airport, and particularly convenient to the local Hard Rock Cafe (which we did take advantage of). The hotel restaurant is really very good with an ample offering at the...

This is a beautiful property on the outskirts of San Jose, near the airport. The place is pretty secluded, although being well located just off a main highway. The hotel is old, but pretty much well kept, so it's clean and functional. The bedrooms are spacious and pleasant. The staff is kind and efficient. And the breakfast by the pool...
