Reviewed 30 April 2014 via mobile

Friendly staff, quiet (heard no planes) and comfy rooms and very handily 5 mins from airport with the shuttle leaving every 30 mins 24/7 I believe. Also near some restaurants and Walmart so very handy. We had absolutely no complaints-there are even laundry facilities which is great to return home with clean clothes.

We stayed the on the last night in Costa Rica. It's another hotel near the airport, and we haven't use most of its facilities, but they looked very good (had a glance of the fitness room, which seemed very decently equipped), we didn't even have the chance to try the breakfast.
The rooms are very comfortable, great bed and all that's necessary. Wi-fi worked very well in the rooms. The bathroom was big and comfortable, although the shower was not of the best (maybe not enough pressure). But the toiletries were very good and hairdryer functional.
I didn't adore the fact that at check-in they blocked not only the room price, but also an additional amount on the credit card, but it's details. Good thing that you can buy your exit tax at the hotel (so you avoid additional lines at the airport), bad thing - they charge $4 for this difficult task. Airport shuttle is free and leaves every half an hour.
There are 4-5 restaurants in front of the hotel, in a kind of parking lot. The Mexican one we chose was extremely overpriced and nothing special.

We really enjoyed this hotel - it was nice, the staff was very friendly and breakfast was amazing - we were very well accommodated in terms of drinks and had table service!
The rooms were huge and nicely decorated with modern decor. The bathroom also had a tub for a nice pre-flight soak. The fitness room and pool were also convenient to have! :)
There were a number of restaurant choices within 100m of the restaurant as well as a Walmart and a shuttle service to the airport every 30 minutes - great! :)

We stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott San Jose Airport Alajuela two weeks ago before returning home back to Denver.

The location is great, very close to the airport and they have a free shuttle. The first one starts at 4:00 am and we had to take it as our flight was at 6:00 am. We had enough time at the airport. Be aware that there might be a lot of people catching the 4:00 am shuttle. It happened to us so we had to wait for the second one.

The service at the hotel was fine and it is a good idea to pay the airport exit fees at the hotel even though it costs a bit more. It saved us time and headache once we got to the airport.

The room was fine with a very nice bathroom and a comfortable bed and access to wi-fi. We did ask for a wake up call as we had to wake up at 3:00 a.m. And they did call.

There are several restaurants within walking distance of the hotel butt we ate dinner at the hotel restaurant ( see other review).

You have to read the Marriott website carefully to understand what you pay for. Overall advertisements says one thing but look at the room details and you'll find that they charge extra for different things, like breakfast. Of all the places we stayed in Costa Rica, staff here was at least helpful, not complaining, as they were helpful but we had better everywhere else.

Dear Ernie P:
We appreciate your review and we have shared your comments with our staff to pay more attention to details. Breakfast is not included in rate unless you book the appropiate rate with breakfast included for a minimum difference that is strongly suggested considering that our full buffet breakfast starts at 4:00 am and we serve local and international food to please all tastes.

Excellent efficient service at this focused hotel very conveniently situated near the airport and with complimentary shuttle service. Comfortable but firm beds, good internet and satisfactory food, with charming staff make this a good place to stay. In our opinion, the food was of a higher quality than that in the food court over the road, and the price is reasonable. There is a pool.

Room Tip: Can't help here, we stayed twice, and both times the rooms were fine.

On our last night in Costa Rica, we decided to stay close to the airport, as we had an early departure. The hotel is situated in the rear of a small plaza, next to a Wal-Mart. Within a short five minute drive there are dozens of restaurants in the city of Alajuela.

The room we had was very clean. The hotel is relatively new and in excellent condition. The hotel has a free washer/dryer for guests and we took advantage of doing some before the trip.

The hotel has an email area for travelers, as well as terminals devoted for boarding passes.

The front desk staff assisted us with our passport taxes.

The hotel has a free shuttle to the airport, which we took advantage of.

We would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: We selected an upper floor away from an elevator. The laundry is on the second floor, as well as th...
