We stayed there the night before a flight. We found it to be clean but a bit tired. The bartender we found to be rude when we called down about Silver status perks. There were other places to walk to to eat. We found the breakfast buffet to be great. They were accommodating for gluten free as well, they were...

Excellent place to stay, very reasonable priced and very comfortable. The staff was friendly and hospitable. I would definitely come back. Easy walking distance to super market and other restaurants in the area. Felt very safe and enjoyed the sites nearby.

Stayed here for one night after landing in Costa Rica. Although it's close to the airport it's quite an expensive / lengthy taxi ride due to the horrendous traffic. Pool and rooms are nice but this is one of those Hiltons where they like to squeeze every last penny out of you. If you pay for breakfast included in the...

It's not a resort, but the Doubletree Cariari is a lovely place to hang your hat while staying in the San Jose area. When I travel for business I always stay there because of the proximity to my workplace. It's rather convenient to the airport, not too far from shopping and restaurants, the staff is always great, the breakfast buffet...

I strongly recommend this hotel, because the employees are so nice and kind, so willing to help if you need anything. I felt there as at home, employees are so friendly! I have been in this hotel several times and I always want to stay there when I have to go to Costa Rica for businesses.

1970's Hotel that is showing its age. Air conditioning was inoperative during entire stay. Check-in staff failed to mention this important detail until it was too late to check-in elsewhere. Good thing I did not want to spend time in room, given that cable TV was also not working. Would strongly recommend against staying at this hotel.

We stayed at double tree in San Jose, Costa Rica because it is where Gate1 travel booked our hotel for. We stayed here the first and last night of our travels. It was so nice to arrive to such a beautiful property and obviously be greeted by a warm cookie. The hotel was nice but what was really nice was...

The rooms are very good and breakfast is one of the best I've had. They have a huge and I mean superb breakfast selection. What really sets it apart is all the great dining just a block away along with a grocery store. It's 10-15 min away from the Intel behlen campus. Personally I think it's much better than the...
