Our family had a most enjoyable time at the Costa Rica Marriott during XMAS week. It is an excellent resort in a beautiful setting. It was our base for day tours to wonderful sites. The travel was long to some locations and the roads were certainly not always the best but the views were great and the attractions were worth it.
We bought a package on this website and it was a deal. This hotel was fantastic and the whitewater rafting was incredible. The volcano tour was a long drive but cool. The hot tub at the hotel is very secluded and a must do. The property is very well maintained. Food and drinks are American prices at the hotel but quality. Don't plan on seeing the beach staying here but there's tons of other cool adventures to do.
