We stayed here our first night in Costa Rica. We arrived with our 3 young children at 10:00 pm and it was nice to already have someone picking us up for free. The free breakfast was good but nothing special. The staff was very friendly, even taking us on a midnight tour of the gardens to look for wildlife since... More

I am very fortunate to have met Emmanuel, Josue and Lorenzo Guzman and to have had the experience at Robledal. The room was just what I needed after a bumpy flight from the US. Nice comfortable bed, ac and hot shower (soap, shampoo, conditioner supplied), hair dryer, free in-room wi-fi and flat screen TV with many channels to choose from.... More

We spent our first night in Costa Rica here. Staff picked us up at the airport. It was middle of the afternoon and we hadn't had lunch. The kitchen at Hotel Robledal prepared a great meal for us - our first casados of the trip. The hotel grounds are beautiful. Our room, however, was tiny. It was very cramped for... More

Hello Afreil, Thank you for taking the time and provide this excellent feedback to us! We probably had the hotel all booked for the night you stayed as we mostly provide larger rooms for families with 3-4 people. We are sorry that this and the wifi connection were the downsides on your visit. We are getting new routers so all... More

great location. awesome service. and everyone is nice. Amazingly nice. They picked us up at the airport, waiting there with a sign with our name on it. they drove us to a local restaurant and back. The breakfast in the morning was perfect. They literally could not have been more friendly. just loved it here.

Upon arrival, we discovered the hotel does not offer free shuttle service to accommodate all flights on the website. (Although they did have a cab ready for us early in the morning). The wi-fi was out of service, pool and hot tub were empty, and you cannot leave the hotel grounds without asking the staff to unlock the gate for... More

When we travel out of the country we don't like staying in large hotels. Three brothers own this small, friendly hotel that is surrounded by tropical trees and flowers. Outdoor dining made us feel like we were in the country even though we were close to the airport. Since there is nowhere to walk to and we didn't have our... More

Dear Kobe43, Thank you for your good comments! We appreciate when our guests take some time to write about their stay with us, that way we use feedback to improve our service. There are some little shops (grocery store, clothing, bakery, pizza place,"sodas" etc) walking distance, in our community. Only that they are around 700 mts from the hotel so... More

We were collected by the hotel's own shuttle, after an exhaustingly long trip and quickly delivered to the small oasis of calm, which is the Robeldal. Small, friendly and real, the hotel is quietly and efficiently run by the friendly resident family; an ideal alternative to an anonymous on-airport hotel. The pool is idyllically beautiful and everything is very clean... More

We stayed the night before flying out and the staff was great. The rooms were good and the grounds were beautiful. The surrounding area seemed a little sketchy so we just stayed in and ate dinner there...which was just fine. I would return.

I don't usually stay in airport-area hotels, and I don't usually eat in hotel restaurants (on the assumption that with a ready-made customer base, the food tends to be mediocre and over-priced). But flying into CR near nightfall with my family & wanting an early start out of town the next day led us to Robledal, and we all felt... More

Thank you Kath529 for your great review! We always appreciate feedback in order to improve our service. I only would like to clarify that the small round pool next to the swimming pool is a children´s pool. Because of the design it looks very much to a hot tub, but we built it so families with toddlers or children who... More
