Everything about the hotel was just perfect. It was right down the street from airport and the shuttle takes you there every 30 minutes. I had family staying on another floor and the elevator only allows you to go to your floor. Good security but too good I guess
Location near the airport is its main advantage. Inside is peaceful, clean, modern, and comfortable. Front desk staff gave some great advice including that we return our rental car the night before our early-morning flight, and that the rental car shuttle would bring us back to the hotel. This was the best idea and greatly simplified our morning of departure. The hotel shuttle to the airport was quick and efficient. The pool is tiny, and tucked away in a back corner. The cafe/restaurant in the lobby is modern and inviting with a great looking menu, however, our waitress was the slowest on the planet. Every step took about 5 times longer than it should have. Even when we finally caught her eye (the place was 90 percent empty at the time), and indicated that we wanted the bill, she took another 10 minutes to finish sorting cutlery before coming over and putting us out of our misery. The food was good, but the service was terrible.
El hotel es.bonito El servicio es pesimo
Very friendly staff at desk who took time to check me in when they could not find my reservation. Maybe issue with online company I booked through but they still honored my rate. Some issues with the hot water at sink and shower. Was either scalding hot or cold. Hard to tune. Not a deal breaker at all though
Location, close to the airport and has restaurants available for those arriving in the evening
Close to airport. Great front desk staff.
Great time at the hotel. Modern, clean, easy to access from the airport. No complaints at all
Very close to the airport and a free shuttle every 1/2 hour. A good first or last night stay. 6-7 restaurants right across the parking lot.
Close to airport, affordable, queen-sized beds, big enoigh for 4 adults Some of the staff wasn't the friendliest, but no one was rude. They were all informative. No complaints!
The price for one night was amazing, and the location to the airport was really convenient. If I had a layover in San Jose - Alajuela I would definitely stay there again. Continental Breakfast was not included with the deal I got on Kayak.
Estaba limpio y era cómodo. Muy práctico para el aeropuerto con transporte. Restaurantes cerca.
Las habitaciones olían mal, alfombra y piso de baño pegajoso. Ventilador de baño no funcionaba. El año pasado me alojé aquí y tuvimos la misma experiencia.
Conveniente para volar y salir del aeropuerto. habitación cómoda y camas.
Un maravilloso lugar para alojarse! El personal era servicial, amable y profesional. El hotel estaba muy limpio, y la habitación cumplió todas nuestras expectativas. Servicio de transporte al aeropuerto fue fantástico. El conductor era muy amable y servicial con las maletas y tal. Un fantástico lugar para alojarse!
El hotel era práctico para el aeropuerto, con un personal estupendo y un buen desayuno. La habitación estaba limpia y ordenada. Sin embargo, la ducha necesitaba una actualización y la alcachofa de la ducha no funcionaba correctamente.
La piscina y la zona de estar. Café en el vestíbulo, con manzanas Aviones sobrevolando la propiedad, es lo que tiene estar cerca del aeropuerto
Came in on a late flight to San Jose and stopped off at the Holiday Inn Express for a night before jumping off into the Costa Rican countryside in the morning. For this purpose it did exactly what it needed to do. Shuttle bus that picked up at the airport was a plus. A little bit pricey for what you get but not acceptable for one night. The breakfast options were pretty basic but in their defense they were a typical Costa Rican style (gallo pinto, eggs, coffee, and some fresh fruits). Traffic at the intersection in front of the hotel can be horrific so keep that in mind if you will be driving. Also, keep an eye out for the shuttle bus that comes around outside of the arrivals area and stops close to the taxi stand. A "helpful" local showed me where to go then just happened to mention that he works on tips. I could have just waited on my own for it...
Overall, everything was great. Location is perfect for flying to the airport. Staff was very helpful and really wants to help you! Room was comfortable and clean. 24 hour shuttle was awesome! Great value for the money. For those who arrive at off hours there is a Denny's close by. Our only negative was the breakfast which was very processed (e.g. scrambled eggs were bland) and not enough variety for the cost of that hotel.
Bed was comfortable The room had a terrible smell. They said you could get wifi in the hotel, but it was really only in the lobby area. The traffic outside is very loud because of a crazy intersection and you can hear planes landing and taking off.
Everything was very good. Friendly staff, good breakfast, good parking. Five nights and all went well. The traffic at the entry to the hotel is nightmare.
The good breakfast, beautiful view, friendly donkeys and dogs, helpful staff, warm room, hot shower, kid friendly yard full of gnomes and play houses, and proximity to the airport (45 minutes). Wifi was spotty and pretty much unusable, though it may have been the stormy weather.

Location was great. Just a few kilometers from Poas Volcano Park. Great view of San Jose and Allajela. Wind howls all night but youneed that to blow the clouds out. No
Hotel Villa Dolce is in a convenient location. Rooms were clean and had everything I needed. Staff are all friendly and extremely helpful. The same can be said about the owner and his wife who live on the property. I loved my stay here and would recommend it. I definitely will be back!! Pura Vida Nothing
Perfect hotel for the money. We had three rooms, all with two queen beds for only $92 per room. The staff was exceptionally friendly, the pool and gardens are nice, and the restaurant was one of the best meals throughout our trip. Airport shuttle was on time even with our 3:30am pickup. The shower has soap/shampoo and conditioner (I think) attached to the wall. I'll probably avoid the "conditioner" if I stay again.
the shuttle service to airport worked great
Great staff, room was great. Good location to venture out from. Wouldn't plan on pool time, small and in courtyard. Rooms in hotel part a little noisy in the a.m.
Quiet and comfortable Room was not the one we reserved. We reserved a King Bed and ended up in a room with 2 Queens
I was at the pacific cost in costa rica, so to void flight issues i came back to downtown one day before my flight, looking to save few dollars i book at the martino hotel, very beautiful place with a bit of italy, the best thing was the food and the staff, so i m very happy and my best to everybody there, thanks crew... hope to come back very soon, my promise to stay more days and get a free spa, :)
Stayed for 3 nights drove to Arenal for 2 nights back to Martino for 2 nights. My wife our 8-year-old our 15-year-old and I. Wonderful food good wine selection gorgeous pool terrific gym. Never went to the spa. Rooms were very nice staff polite and fun Great zoo up the road #40walkable#41. We dont know exactly when...but well be back...we ALL loved this place. Keep in mind this is Central America and its important to take your kids places like this instead of Las Vegas or Orlando. We found everything in Costa Rica charming...from the narrow roads to the little lizards to stopping for lunch in the middle of nowhere. Wonderful hotel great vacation.
The pro's were: - Nice staff -Big room -Nice tours leaving from the Resort -Food in the restaurant was pretty good Con's -Not really close to anything -As soon as you leave the hotel, you see the 'real' San Jose -Everything else was fine up until the last day. I went to the airport and realized that I left my camera in the room, so I drove back and to get it only to find one of the cleaning ladies stole my camera and would not admit it. I know exactly where I left it... GUARD YOUR BELONGINGS!!
We stayed three nights, wonderful hotel, great food, the spa is gorgeous but VERY expensive. Do NOT bring any children to the Hotel Martino Resort. No playground, nothing for a child to do. No 'Kiddie Pool', no child portion plates in the restaurant, and the child seat was old and not in very good condition. I do not understand how this was rated a 5 STAR hotel
