Contemporary luxury in the heart of Costa Rica's coffee plantations

A gateway to the epic Poas stratovolcano and the endless coffee farms of Costa Rica, the colonial-style Marriott San Jose is wonderfully situated within a 30-acre coffee plantation. The boutique hotel’s hacienda-style architecture offers timber-beamed ceilings, colonial windows and shutters overlooking a wonderful pool with daybeds and loungers, while rooms boast either pool or mountain views. Sprawling bedrooms are Caribbean-esque in shades of muted yellow and green, and the suites are particularly spectacular with private terraces, enormous bathrooms and awe-inspiring vistas.
The luxurious Kuo spa is perfect for relaxing before or after your flight, with a wealth of treatments on offer that use local coffee and volcanic ash. There's also a steam room, whirlpool, and sauna, or for more strenuous activities head to the tennis courts, fitness trail and driving range. A wealth of dining options greet you come evening, from the curved brick ceilings of Hacienda Kitchen to the intimate atmosphere of Bar 10. Or, perhaps enjoy the Peruvian delights of La Isabella, or fresh sushi, exotic cocktails and live music in La Castilla.
