Three-hundred-room nouveau colonial resort on a coffee plantation in a suburb of San Jose
The mother of all haciendas, architect Ronald Zurcher’s design nods to the 16th century with apricot walls, a roof covered in 200-year-old Spanish tiles, spiraling decorative ironwork and a ceiling painting by a local artist.
Bed and Bath
The simple and soothing rooms are dressed in a palette of cream, gold and apple green, and they feature hardwood furnishings, decorative jars from Guatemala, and dainty Juliet balconies that overlook manicured lawns, slender palm trees and refreshing swimming pools.
The tapas bar’s undulating brick ceilings and studded leather chairs make it a popular gathering spot. Work off the indulgence with a swim in the pool, a few swings on the driving range, a set of tennis on the hard courts or some time in the gym. Or bliss out with a remineralizing mud wrap at the Küo Spa.
In the Area
Set in a suburb of San Jose, the Marriott allows you to be close to the action while being cocooned among mountain vistas on a coffee plantation. Still, you should get out to experience the city’s rollicking nightlife at the hip Café de los Deseos and Rapsodia. If you’re looking for a more low-key night, catch a performance at the elegant National Theater downtown. Barrio Bird offers great walking tours of the city customized around food, photography, art and more. Take a daytrip to explore the La Paz Waterfall Gardens, the Poás Volcano and the Doka Estate Coffee Plantation.
