This was my second stay at the Doubletree by Hilton Cariari and I like this hotel. It is affordable and feels like a resort. There is a restaurant and spa on site which make it very convenient to get your needs met. Additionally the staff is very friendly and helpful. My one warning would be to understand that the hotels in Costa Rica often do not have heaters in the room and can feel cold to some travelers.

Beautifully maintained hotel with wonderful staff! We only stayed one night because it is so close to the airport with a complimentary shuttle but would definitely stay again for a longer duration in the future. I made a mistake on reservation dates and staff were able to accommodate despite my error.
