We stayed 7 nights at the Doubletree resort, mainly because I'm a Hilton Diamond member. There is nothing great about this hotel, yet it's not terrible either. The food, with the exception of the specialty resturants was not very good. They don't change the variety very much and after a week the same food gets old. I thought both specialty...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for six days (5/24-5/29) and I have to say I already had lowered my expectations as far as food is concerned after reading the reviews. However, a few observations about the hotel is warranted. First of all my room was clean however, my sheets had a stain on them before I even got in...

Stayed the weekend and wish we had more time to participate in the full schedule of activities the resort had created. Each night there was entertainment planned that didn't disappoint. The swim up bars closed really early which was unfortunate for us since we came back from our tours late. Guest services had bad hours as well. We weren't allowed...

Staff were all friendly and knowledgeable. We were initially checked into a room that was under bathroom construction and there were bags of dirty water next to the tiolet. Awesome first impression. The next room we had wasa bit of an upgrade. As far as the room goes this is no fancy resort, I'd label it as a hotel. For...

This former Fiesta Resort is now being managed by HIlton. It's great location between San Jose and Liberia makes it a well known place for Costa Ricans, Europeans and Americans. The grounds have remained lovely but the quality of service, food and the value for the money has decreased significantly. Although the location is appealing, the property no longer makes...

My husband and I stayed at the Doubletree at the end of April, and had a very pleasant experience. We weren't able to get a room in building 3 (after reading other reviews, I had requested this building), so we were put in building 2. The room was very similar to an Embassy suites layout, but wasn't as nice. The...

We enjoyed our 5 days at this all-inclusive resort. It was heaven to relax in and out of the four pools. We were most impressed with the young, friendly, and courteous staff. They seemed to enjoy working there. We also liked the mix of young singles, couples, seniors, and families who were all content and having a good time swimming,...
