“Best Courtyard I have ever been to”

I travel a lot for work and stay at a lot of Marriott hotels. This was the best Courtyard I have ever stayed at. Plus the convenience of having it right down the street from the airport is perfect...plus a 4 am shuttle for the early flights out

Room Tip: make sure you buy the airport tax at the hotel to avoid the long lines at the airport. It comes wit...

This hotel is right next to the airport and seems brand new. The rooms are large and clean and they have free wifi. There is a Walmart next door where I bought a case of water and a mini cooler for $10 which should last me for a week of adventuring. It was the perfect place to rest up after a long day of flying

This is a newer hotel in San Jose, Costa Rica. It has been open for about 1 year and is very modernly decorated. The hotel is very close to the airport and Walmart is right next door. The hotel can assist you with paying your departure tax for $33 USD and also will shuttle you to the airport. It was very clean and quiet. After a long week in Hermosa, it was nice to have some R&R at this hotel.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback of our hotel; now that you mentioned the Wal-Mart, I want to share with you that the Plaza Mango Park will be open soon, with a lot of different options including restaurants, and retail stores just a few steps from the main entrance of the hotel.

I am really glad to know that you had the opportunity to enjoy Playa Hermosa, is one of the best locations for surfing. Hope you also has the opportunity to visit Manuel Antonio, one of the most beautiful and visited National Park in Costa Rica with white sand just a couple of hours from our hotel, or Poas Volcano which is the largest crater in the world and 45 min away from our hotel, is a must, or this will be the perfect excuse to plan a new trip to Costa Rica.

Your kind feedback is very much appreciated and we hope to welcome you back again soon.

Kind Regards,

This hotel was wonderful! It was clean and modern and rediculously inexpessive! We were staying just overnight prior to our flight out of the country and couldn't have been more satisfied with the place. If we need to stay in San Jose in the future, this would definitely be the place. Although breakfast wasn't included, the rate was so reasonable that it didn't matter. The shuttles were timely to the airport, the staff was professional, and the place was a releif after some less modern or "North American" facilities we stayed in elsewhere throughout the country. We had a very brief stay, checking in late and out early for a flight, and did not get to see much of the facility, but what we did see was great.

This is a beautiful new property right next door to the San Jose Airport. I was there on a Habitat for Humanity trip, which the Courtyard generously supports by the way, and I couldn't have been more thrilled. The hotel is quiet, clean, and the people are very friendly. Marcos the manager is the greatest. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

We flew in late and decided to stay near the airport for a short night before driving off into the jungle. This hotel met our requirements for a nice, clean, and safe stay. Breakfast was good. The only problem I had was my misunderstanding about how the air conditioner worked. You have to insert your room key into the slot on the wall to engage the A/C. What I didn't understand was that you have to leave the card in the slot or the A/C powers back off in a minute. I'll chalk that up to being tired and not paying attention to what the person at the front desk told me. This hotel is basically what you would expect to find in the USA.

If you are in the area of the San Jose airport for a short stay, this is an excellent choice. Really nice, large rooms. At this point the price was better than the nearby Holiday Inn Express and Hampton Inn, both of which are my normal choices. If it is the start of your trip, there is a WalMart next door, so you can stock up with snacks for the road or a chance to buy wine etc at a reasonable cost. Less than five minutes to the airport. I will be back.
