“great stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013

I arrived late at night with a tour group, the staff was prepared for us and got us through registration in a timely manner. However, there was a wedding in the pool area, so loud music. Great place to stay.

I read some if the negative reviews and became slightly concerned, but my experience there was phenomenal. The hotel is gorgeous, our room was large, and the food was fantastic. Great hotel if you're staying in the area.

I only stayed here for one evening transiting San Jose en route from the States to an outlying area of CR, but I was VERY pleasantly surprised. An awesome property with great amenities. The rooms are very clean, the staff is very friendly, and everything you need is located on site (including a pool, casino, and bar-what else to you need in CR???). I will DEFINITELY stay here again if I'm traveling to the Republic. Centrally located and one of the better Doubletree's I've ever stayed at.

I have stayed at this hotel a couple of times a year for over 10 years. The staff treat you very well and the beds are very comfortable. The breakfast buffet is fabulous. The exercise center keeps expanding, adding new equipment so that there is plenty for the guests, especially during peak usage.

My wife and I stayed at this property three different times in 2010. We loved it then, but it's even better now. The most significant improvement is the fitness center and the Executive Lounge. The fitness center has new equipment. and good climate control. The Executive Lounge now offers not only free water, juice, and soft drinks, but free beer, wine, and a few limited mixed drinks. The food selections are better than before for breakfast and in the evening. The breakfasts are really good and the hotel has it's own pastry chef. The staff is outstanding. especially Fernando, Olger, Esteban, and Diego. The pool attendant Nestor always does an outstanding job. If I owned a hotel, I would be blessed if half my staff were as hard a worker as Nestor is. This property is a great central location for taking tours around the country. We would definitely stay here again.

I was on a tour in Costa Rica and we spent our first and last night at the Double Tree. Our room was `pool side' and was very nice. Coffee maker, hair dryer and wakeup calls were all nice to count on. The room was clean.

Most of our dining was buffet for the many people on the tour. The food was good and loved the omelet made right in front of me! The chef was concise and the presentation was very nice. Needless to say, the coffee was perfect!

Hot cookie at check in:)

Room Tip: My room was poolside and very quiet. Easy access to not only the pool, but to breakfast. No going...
