Courtyard San Jose Airport Alajuela
Ranked #3 of 27 Hotels in Alajuela
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 October 2013

This hotel is conveniently located very close to the airport and they have a shuttle every half hour. It takes less than five minutes to get to the airport. The rooms are spacious and modern and all the conveniences are there. The only thing I didn't like is there are no windows you can open, but of course, that is a personal preference.

Dear guest,

Thank you so much for your detail comment, as you mentioned our hotel is located close to the airport, and close to the main roads towards the amazing attractions of our green Costa Rica, hope you had the opportunity to visit these places like the crystal clear water in La Paz Waterfall or the biggest crater of the world in Poás Volcano just 45 min away from our location.

Pura Vida,

Service was excellent and friendly from the front desk to the cleaning staff. Facilities are new, modern and secure. Restaurant had great food and a super bartender. You can pay the departure tax at the hotel saving time at the airport.

Great to stay if you have an early next morning flight. It is well priced, rooms are ample and modern, well appointed. I arrived late night, tired, but my check-in was a breeze. Well trained reception personnel. I was sleeping in a comfortable bed in no time. Next day, it took me less than 5 minutes from the hotel to the Juan Santamaría airport on the free hotel shuttle.

It is a newer property. No restaurants within walking distance yet, but the hotel is in a commercial complex, where soon I am sure you will find something to grab. A Walmart is across the street in the same complex. It will suit you if you do business in Alajuela or Heredia area as or anywhere else to the West of San Jose. You get charged more for older, less clean rooms in other nearby hotels from other well-known chains. I will certainly use it again if rates stay at this level. I guess you can't ask for more in a airport hotel for business travelling. Did not use the pool/gym/spa facilities, so can't comment.

Room Tip: Rooms don't have impressive views. The area is an industrial area and there is some tin roofs l...

Thank you so much for sharing your comment with all of us, is a really good pleasure to find out that your stay was beyond comfortable, for us is extremely enjoyable to know that you had a great stay and that all our team make you feel all right.

I would like to share with you, the opening of the new Plaza Mango Park across the street offering several options like restaurants, and stores for your convenience in addition to Walmart.

Have a magnificent day

The standard expected of a Marriott was as expected, very pleased. Very good breakfast. Very convenient to airport but to visit the downtown it is an expensive, long taxi ride. Pool is very small and cold.

Nice, clean and comfortable rooms. We had to take an early morning flight and this was a very good choice for overnight stay. Free Wi-fi and free shuttle to the airport beginning 4:00am.
Will stay again in the future

Stayed one night on my way to Spain, nice soft beds, nice, service minded staff, and a good restaurant. Its so close to the airport, you can walk. (They have pickup service.) Nice for a night going out/in to Costa Rica.
