Marriott hotels in Costa Rica will start 2019 with newly renovated rooms providing guests a new experience of luxury and modernity, with designs created to evoke the destination and local nature in every detail.


The renovation consists of 500 rooms inspired by the Costa Rican coffee culture and beach vibes.

Costa Rica Marriott Hotel San Jose

At Costa Rica Marriott the renovation has modernized the rooms with the latest innovations in technology while highlighting the feeling of being at a traditional Coffee Hacienda of the region.

Some of the elements that inspired the decor of this property were the typical hand painted Carreta of the 15th century from the Sarchí area , as a historical reference of the transportation of that time in the country, and the importance of coffee in Costa Rica's history is showcased in the colors and illustrations as well as details inspired by Costa Rican artisans.

The modernity of the rooms is complemented by traditional maple solid wood furniture sustainably farmed and traditional artwork. The bathroom now features a large walk-in rain shower, which evokes the rainforest in the Costa Rican tropics.

The bedroom showcases the work of local photographer Armando del Vecchio who captured the essence of the Costa Rican coffee plantations. The color palette chosen was also inspired by the process of this grain: from its fruit to its roasting, therefore, you can appreciate brown, terracotta and crimson tones throughout the rooms.

"The rooms are more versatile. The business traveler will have different options to work: in bed, on the sofa and the desk. The number of connectivity ports was increased, and the desk is integrated into the television panel, where the guest can work, relax and eat comfortably. There are elements and special decorative details throughout the room. For leisure travelers, on the other hand, we offer a connection to the destination in every detail of the room, "explained Dennis Whitelaw Country Manager of Marriott Hotels.

The Costa Rica Marriott hotel features 299 spacious rooms and suites, 5 restaurants, two swimming pools, a luxury spa, fitness center, and conference rooms with capacity for 1,000 guests with an experienced Events team to make every group a memorable one. The property was also recognized as Leading Hotel of Costa Rica 2018 by the World Travel Awards organization.

Los Suenos Marriott Ocean & Golf Resort

At Los Suenos Marriott Resort, modern comforts are in perfect harmony with the ocean views and the rainforest that distinguishes this region of Costa Rica.

The decorative elements found in the rooms highlight the work of national artisans inspired by Costa Rican scenes, including the lamps inspired by local landscapes and the colors giving an allusion to Las Nubes de Coronado town as well as the fauna and flora of the country.

In the range of colors you can see earth tones such as greens, coffees, creams and reds, which combine perfectly with the details of sustainable wood utilized throughout the room. Another objective of the design was to maximize the space intelligently with features such as a comfortable sofa that functions as a place to rest, work, read, or as an additional bed.

Sustainability takes center stage in the new rooms with showers, lavatory faucets and toilet with low water consumption; in addition, you can find LED lighting and an intelligent thermostat. "Marriott Hotels and their owners have a strong commitment to sustainability and the implementation of all possible green practices, in Costa Rica our two Marriott hotels are also certified with the highest Sustainability Rating by the National Institute of Tourism, and they also have the ecological blue flag award in the climate change category, "said Mr. Dennis Whitelaw, Country Manager for Marriott Hotels.

The entire room renovation project is slated for completion in April 2019 and maintains the character of seaside colonial Hacienda while highlighting the newest Marriott global design.

Los Suenos Marriott features201 rooms and suites, meeting spaces with capacity for 500 guests, spa, fitness center, and a large free-form pool that has been recognized as one of the best in Latin America. In addition, the Resort's 18-hole La Iguana Golf course has been recognized as the Best Golf Course in Costa Rica by Golf World Travel Awards.
