Has anyone stayed at any of the properties in Costa Rica. Looking for something out of city centre. travelling with 4 kids.
We stayed at the the Courtyard San Jose Escazu for two one-night stays in July. They bookended our Costa Rica trip. I can't exactly say I recommend it. I'm not a huge fan of Courtyards overall, mainly because I like free breakfast. This place has a breakfast buffet that is $18 a person. No thanks. On our second stay, the staff even offered us a 30% off coupon. Still no thanks. There was a Starbucks within walking distance and a shopping center with a better breakfast place a short drive away.
On the plus side, as gold members we got to spin a roulette wheel at the front desk. One night, we got a free fruit plate. Another night, we got two free glasses of wine at the bar.
The water was also unusable for one afternoon. Some maintenance issue.
There were other Marriotts in Escazu that were closer to a big, modern shopping center (the one with the breakfast cafe). I'll probably stay in one of those on our first night in Costa Rica next time around.
