Excellent experience

Our stay was amazing. We will definitely be staying there in the future. Everyone we encountered was so nice, friendly and helpful. Our housekeeper Evelyn was especially accommodating and made sure our stay was the best it could be by providing us with additional coffee and making towel figurines for the kids. She was very special during our 3 day stay.

Great base for touring and relaxing

Everyone on the staff was terrific - efficient, friendly and accommodating. When construction work started under our balcony and we complained about the noise, we were quickly upgraded to a better, quieter room. Lovely spa, good restaurants, expansive pool area. Easy to arrange tours with tour company on-site.

Fantastic Hotel and Service

My family of 5 just returned from the JW Marriott. We were there for 6 days. We had an amazing time. Not only was the hotel beautiful, but the people that worked there were fantastic and really made our vacation special. We highly recommend the nature hike with Eliecer. He is great and we learned a ton about the area while having a wonderful time! He also works in the towel area at the pool and could not be nicer. For food, we loved the steakhouse. We ate there three times over our 6 nights. Dennis was our waiter and made us feel right at home. The food and service was fantastic! We spent several days relaxing at the pool and Santos was our waiter there. What a fun guy! He provided excellent service and was always there when we wanted a fresh drink or some food. Really a great way to relax after we spent 4 days touring in the Arenal region. Finally, I would advise using the Costa Rica transport service from the hotel. I made the mistake of booking a car to take us back to the airport on our last day through the internet. They did not show up. To the rescue was Miguel at the transport desk. He quickly arrange transport for us, driving us off the property so we could meet the driver that he arrange to take us to the airport. Miguel and friends worked hard to help us make our flight. We cannot thank them enough. They saved our vacation. In sum, this hotel is great, service is great, and we would definitely recommend!

The property is outstanding. Our room has to be the best on the property. Corner ocean front suite with huge balcony, and 2 walls of glass is incredible. Food was great, although dinner a little expensive. An all-inclusive option would be nice given the hotel's remote location and limited likelihood of visiting off property restaurants.

Disappointing stay at Marriot Resort

Beautiful resort. We had very poor customer service from at least 3 members of staff. Felt very uncomfortable. Left a day early. Had great service from 3 other hotels on trip, Very disappointing for a Marriot property.
