I don't understand the big deal here

Yes, it's on the ocean and yes it's a JW Marriott, but let's face it, it's not that impressive really.I've stayed other places in Costa Rica that were much nicer! My all time favorite is Arenal at the foot of the volcano!.

Stunning resort!

Absolutely beautiful resort!! The staff is amazing. I've never stayed at a hotel where my room is cleaned up more than once a day. We go out and come back and the room has been tidied up again! Room service is awesome, hot and delicious. The grounds are immaculate! If you are looking for a quiet retreat - this is it! Thank you JW Marriott!!

Beautiful Resort

We stayed at the JW Marriott Guanacaste for our anniversary. Upon making our reservation I began to communicate, via email, with the concierge team (David and Marrianne), who were very helpful and prompt. I arranged airport transfer through the on-site transport company "Go Costa Rica." Liberia airport to the hotel was roughly 1.5 hours (maybe a little more). The vehicle (a van) was very comfortable. The contact (Patricia) was very helpful and our driver (Alex) was great. We ended up using Go Costa Rica several other times for our transit needs. A possible down side to the hotel is that it is not close to the local town. This is also a plus because the hotel is very private and secluded. Just keep in mind that you cannot walk from the hotel to the town. The food at the hotel was excellent. While the food was more expensive than "local" offerings, the cost was less when compared to similar hotels in other regions. You may find better prices in "town," however, there will be a cost for transportation to the town. Keep in mind that this is a resort and therefore free breakfast for "Gold" status is not availible. Other benefits, such as 15% off food items is honored. Everyone at the hotel was extremely friendly and helpful. Perhaps some of the best staff at any hotel we have stayed at. The property is well taken care of and beautiful.

Exquisite property. All the comforts of the US in a beautiful location!

First family trip to Costa Rica, the property is georgous. Infinity pools and service are outstanding. US prices on food and drinks but very high quality. Be prepared for an adventure when traveling to the hotel; the roads leading up to property have many holes and rough spots. Also, recommend a rental car as the property is a bit isolated. Otherwise, Pura Vida.
