We held our Managers Summit at the Residence Inn about two weeks ago. The meeting rooms are spacious and well-equipped. The hotel has full service F&B outlet which was extremely convenient; we didn't have to leave the hotel for lunch and the catering menus were extensive. Some Managers traveled from abroad and their stay at the hotel was enjoyable as well. I want to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Morales, Gabriela, Paula, Escarlata and Marlen, they were fantastic and made certain we were ta... Read more

I have stayed here my last two business trips, best by far. Marlene offers up a great breakfast but all of the staff are fantastic. Stayed at higher end hotels in San Jose but they don't stack up to the complimentary add ons and accommodations.

The type of hotel you want for a business trip it's in a good section of the city (Escazu) and it has some restaurants and bars near so if your planning and after office you can easily go within a walking distance... the clerks are very polite and they serve you really well... the rooms are great! From a business point of view it covers all the bases (small kitchen, a small living room bed and big bathroom) I couldn't use the pool or gym but I went and it looked very complete... in case of the b...

Spent four nights here at the recommendation of our office in the same complex. Quite frankly, it was very nice and the hotel staff were without exception very personable and helpful. Room was modern and clean with modern kitchen appliances (that I didn't use). Bed was comfortable, room was quiet and bathroom was clean and well equipped. very nice buffet breakfast that I didn't know was included in my rate, with an omlette station, waffles and the usual mix of cold and hot selections.

Stayed at this property for four nights for my business trip to San Jose. Excellent service and location. Personnel was always smiling and willing to help. Good selection for breakfast, always good and fresh. My only comment, and I talked to Mr Carlos Moreno when checking out, is that the breakfast area was always way too hot in the morning. Apparently the hotel turns the AC in that area during the night so when one gets there for breakfast the area is still incredibly warm. Other than this, I h... Read more

I have stayed in many a Marriott (rewards members), but never have I been treated so royally as in this hotel. I would highly recommend this to anyone who visits this area. And the shopping area adjacent to the hotel is incredible along with great restaurants. Another find....a gourmet grocery store across the way from hotel. You will love staying here!

We had a great stay. We stayed 7 nights. We are rewards members and have never had this kind of service at another Marriott. The staff was a amazing! Marcos solved our bedding issue (traveling with 3 kids, bedding can be a problem). He was so helpful and even came to the room to help. The following morning we were greeted at breakfast by Paula. She gave us ideas of places to take the kids and insight to the tours we were considering. She was a constant, friendly face to see each day!

My mother and I visited Costa Rica for the first time. We had the pleasure of staying in an upscale area called Escazu, for 7 days. We did not have any knowledge about the country, therefore we had a lot of questions. We asked Marco Fajardo at the Marriott Residence Inn, he answered all of our questions regarding the tours, the food, the culture, places to visit and so on. He was very professional, patient and extremely accommodating regarding our stay in Costa Rica. The hotel is absolutely ... Read more

This is our first visit to Costa Rica and one of two Marriott hotels we have booked for our family holiday. The service in this place is amazing! All the staff are extremely friendly and go out of their way to ensure you have everything you need. We would certainly stay here again. The only criticism is that there wasn't a huge selection at breakfast.

This hotel meets and exceeds the standards for Marriott Residence Inn. The staff is very professional, the breakfast buffet is good, and the rooms are spacious, quiet, clean, and elegant. The Calle Escazu area where the hotel is located has an abundance of excellent restaurant options, a fantastic cinema, and one of the country's largest malls is close by. Plenty of night life is nearby as well. The only disappointing aspect was the tiny pool which was not very clean, but I am not a pool us... Read more

This hotel is better than the average Residence Inn in the US. It's new, clean and has the best buffet I've seen at a Residence Inn. The service was great from the front desk to housekeeping to the breakfast attendants - everyone was friendly and always willing to help. The area the hotel is in is very modern - it reminds you of a large US city. There is shopping and dining galore, and there is a laser tag, mini zip line, a movie theater and several activities for kids just steps away from... Read more

Spin the roulette wheel for a chance at treats from the lobby snack store ‚?? or maybe the grand prize of 1,000 Marriott points. We settled for a Perrier prize and a warm welcome from Marco at the Front Desk. If you are traveling, you might really enjoy the free Laundromat on the 3rd floor. If you are hungry, walk right out the front door to an array of choice ‚?? including a food court below the movie theaters with all kinds of ways to go (the tacos were delicious and plentiful).

This hotel is right next to the CIMA hotel in Escazu. I stayed here after knee surgery, and it was the best option possible. They were able to wheel me from the hospital to the hotel in 5 minutes, which was great. The suites are big, with a full kitchen, fridge and living room, and a large bathroom as well. We were all surprised by the excellent service of everyone in the hotel. The reception, the breakfast area, housekeeping, etc. Everyone was extremely attentive and supportive of my situation...

The staff here from Maria at the front desk to Sarah, Jonathan and Paola at the restaurant were very accomodating, friendly and helpful throughout my stay.

They greet with a smile and it never stops. Special mention to Maria and Carlos at the front desk, Paula at the breakfast buffet and our bartender whose name I forgot (sorry). You remember faces and names and always care and ask how our day went. Rooms are super clean. Breakfast buffet is very satisfying. The bar is a nice place to unwind. I will be back. Mr. Al.
