Costa Rica Marriott
- What's Included
I don't even know how many times we have already stayed here now, after eightyears of living here in Costa Rica. But I know that every single Christmas, New Year'sand Easter weekend we head right out the door to check into the most beautifuland welcoming Marriott Hotel in the entire world. And in addition not only for theseholiday stays, but every time we have house guests in from the US, guess wherewe take them first? Of course, right back to this wonderful Marriott Hotel & Spain Belen. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained, the furnishings throughoutreminiscent of a centuries old Hacienda, a wonderful selection of restaurants andbars and the employees there - well it just doesn't get better than this. On our mostrecent stay over Easter weekend, we were so happy to meet up again with ourfavorite Bellmen, Alexander, the other Alex, and Carlos who are always the first people we look for upon our arrival. And during our stay this time, we were alsoprivileged to be able to meet up again with Jean Karlo, Loreily, the lovely gal from theSpa, Natalia, that fabulous Concierge who is so helpful to so many, Vanessa from the El Castillo bar and restaurant, Steve, our old friend who we were particularly joyful to see that he is back to work with good results from his back problems, sowe totally applauded his return to the Hotel, Marianne and Wendy and all of theother wonderful fun girls working now at what used to be known as "The Britt Cafe"and I could just go on and on and on but it would take me probably more than Ihave room for here, to compliment each and every wonderful guy and gal here thatjust go out of their way to make us feel so welcome and so special each and everytime we have the privilege of staying here. My husband and I are World Traveler'sbut never stay in any city or town anywhere in the World unless it is a Marriott.
We are currently staying at this hotel right now - we arrived a few days ago. I must say that the hotel and its grounds are beautiful. As nice as the hotel looks from the outside during the day, it is even nicer at night. The lighting on the hotel really makes for some fantastic pictures. Our hotel room is actually a two-room suite (bedroom separate from living room) with two bathrooms. It is very nice and provides extra space to spread out and enjoy the stay. Even though we have this much room, we have enjoyed spending some relaxing time in the common areas. All of the common areas are open to the fresh air. It makes the place feel even bigger that it already is.Everyone we have met at the hotel has been extremely polite and helpful. They go out of their way to make sure that everything is to your liking.Special thanks to some of the fine people we have met at the Marriott so far: Sergio, Alexander, Roy, David V, and Sophia, to name a few. These great folks work in every part of the hotel and they really make the stay enjoyable. If you get a chance to stay at this Marriot, jump at the opportunity - you will love it. And you will probably meet some of the people that I have mentioned - all great people!
Marriott Platinum guest. Booked 5 rooms for two nights to conduct business in San Jose before heading to Tamarind for some fun. Emailed hotel in advance to ensure check in would be seamless after a long day of travel. They said they will use my profile to check into the rooms and have keys ready when we arrive. And they did. Check in was seamless and took only minutes.Rooms were clean and appointed as in previous visits. The weather was gorgeous so we kept the slider open most of our stay to enjoy the breeze. As mentioned by others, the food here is just okay. We ate on the patio the first night and the food was just okay. The sports bar night two was fine for bar food as well but we have learned to taper our expectations for dining in all of San Jose based on prior experiences.Common areas were all well kept. Staff was cordial and professional. Never say housekeeping but room was always made up. And the location is great for airport travel as it is only minutes away. Still my favorite hotel in San Jose.
A fatntastic - and fantastical - hotel evoking style and architecture of another, more glamorous time. The staff was willing and helpful. For food, a variety of offerings, all pleasant in our experience, La Isabela introduced us to delicious Peruvian cuisine, a first. The coffee shop was delightful, especially if you miss lox and bagels after a week of tipico meals. This was a pre-flight stop but next time it will be a destination.
The hotel is immaculate and comfortable. They were accommodating for anything we needed. The style was complete and perfect. The gift shop had everything we needed. All the typical tourist items we were looking for were available there. The restaurant where we dined, Bar no.10, was very overpriced. Typical sports bar, but it was $20 for a burger that was only as good as Carl's Jr.... which I don't like. Great place to stay, just don't eat there.
