JW Marriott Guanacaste Resort and Spa

Why We Love This Hotel

  • The luxe JW standard of spotless rooms and great service, though a bit removed from local color
  • The pool is enormous at 25,000 square feet, and faces west, providing dazzling sunsets
  • Cheap 30-minute shuttle takes you to town for shopping
  • Adjacent golf course has view of the beach and landscape


There's no avoiding the pool at the JW Marriott Guanacaste. It covers 25,000 square feet in a journey that takes it around curves, under bridges and along buildings, before ending with an infinity wall that faces the ocean. It's the standout feature of this JW Marriott, which otherwise adheres for the most part to this upscale brand's idea of a plush and carefree stay.

The resort sits right on the beach, though it's a small patch -- the pool is probably bigger, when you compare them. But the combination of the two ensures there's plenty of places to lie down and sun.

The rooms are spacious and clean. The décor is simple and elegant, with a minibar and fridge. There's a steep charge for Wi-Fi of $14 per day. The resort has five casual restaurants ranging from a steakhouse to a breakfast buffet. Meals are not included and range from $15-$60.

There is a nearby golf course, and a cheap shuttle will take you into the town of Tamarindo for shopping and more affordable eating with local cuisine. There is also a horse ranch nearby for horseback riding and exploring.
