Very good service and a great location. Breakfast is a must. The pool looked outstanding and I hope to get back again to have a chance to use the pool. Eddie the bartender in the lounge is a great guy and the lounge is a great place to have a drink and relax at the end of your day.

I stayed here recently for a business trip - had to check in early because I had taken a red eye flight. There was absolutely no hassle checking in, as my room was ready. My room faced a small courtyard on the back of the property, so it was very quiet. I had a nice breakfast with good coffee and a nice selection of food at the buffet. Afterward, I was exhausted so I went to bed for a few hours. The bed was extremely comfortable and it was quiet enough for me to sleep through the middle part of the day! I had to meet up with a group and needed a few things for the remainder of my trip, so I walked to the nearby grocery story and shopping center. Very comfortable and nice hotel. If I have to transit through Costa Rica again, I'll be back.

Hotel is located about midpoint between the airport and city center on a main highway. There is a large, modern mall nearby, a Hard Rock Cafe, and some other businesses nearby. The hotel is a very attractive and well maintained Spanish Colonial themed property. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The swimming pool area is top notch. There is an open air restaurant and bar as well as two gift shops and a coffee shop. There is an onsite tourist representative to plan day trips to national parks, coffee plantations, etc. The staff is courteous, polite, and helpful.

Lovely hotel, perfect for business in Cariari. I was there for two weeks in November.
I was given a very big room, overlooking the pool area with a balcony. Big kingsize bed (which wasn't two singles put together!) Bathroom, clean and spacioius also.

Reception staff were friendly enough, and also was given a free freshly baked chocolate chip cooke on arrival. The reception hall was quite impressive!

Free shuttle rides to and from work were arranged each morning, which was a nice touch and will mean that I come back here again.

Pool looked idealic (although finished work far too late to actually use it!). Gym room was bigger than your average sized hotel gym, and was well equipped.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool - I think they are a bit more expensive though

Doubletree Cariari is a lovely rustic hotel Located only a 20 minute taxi away from downtown San Jose. It provide a lovely quiet atmosphere while still being close to the city. Great concierge services and great staff especially in the hotel's executive lounge. Great stopping point to and from other points in Costa Rica!

Very personable and quiet hotel. Food is reasonable but not cheap. Room cleaning was difficult to figure out the washing days. Had extra towels showing up on my shower stall, looked like they were used. No fresh water bottles daily. Everyone is very helpful and and vey polite.
