While we did not stay in a Marriott property, I just had to write something about this fabulous place. It's worth all the long air hours to get there . It's clean, the people are friendly and it's just beautiful!! If I didn't live in Costa Rica, I'd want to live there. Also, there is great game viewing just a 3 hour drive away. (Try Sanbona) All that and they have incredible wine and wonderful winery tours. What more can you ask for. We stayed in two small boutique hotels owned by "The Last Word" ...WOW! My only comment is ....skip the rental car unless you are used to driving on the left hand side of the road. It's a big change to make after a 10 hour flight, in a big city, when you don't know exactly where you're going. South Africa rocks!!!!!!!
