My husband and I stayed at the hotel the day before we left Costa Rica in February. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The dinner was excellent and the breakfast that was included was good! We will recommend the hotel to our family and friends traveling to Costa Rica. The shuttle to the airport was also an added benefit.... More

My husband and I arrived at Hotel Robledal early. Our room was not ready when we arrived but the friendly staff made an effort to ready it as soon as possible. We ate two lunches and a dinner in the restaurant, all of which were very good. Our flight did not leave until 6 pm the next day and for... More

Place looked nice, but I can't really say, because they gave away my room! I made a reservation and paid a booking fee several months in advance. Then we showed up here at dinner time with our kids (ages 3, 5, 8 and 10), tired from our trip and ready to just check-in and eat. But guess what- they had... More

Hello Kent G. We are very sorry we were not able to accommodate you and your family after a long day of travel. Unfortunately yes, we experienced a water supply problem last week in one of our two room buildings during our high season. This meant we could only accommodate some of our guests as we fixed the problem, while... More

Not too bad but more expensive than some of the other - better hotels that we stayed at. The rooms were clean and spacious but could use some updating. The food was good. We expected more for the money we paid.

Perfect place to stay when you arrive late or fly out early from San Jose airport. They provide free shuttle to and from airport and it takes only 10 minutes. Staff are super friendly and helpful. Rooms are ok and provide bare minimum. No safety vault. Our door did not close easily. Location is a bit remote from everything But... More

I have lived in Costa Rica for 12 years and often need to stay at a hotel the night before I fly out of the country, since my home is 4 hours from the airport. I had heard of Hotel Robledal and decided to give it a try. I was THRILLED! The hotel, which is a very professionally family-run bed-and-breakfast... More

We stayed here our first night in Costa Rica and our last night. It's very convenient to the airport and the staff are helpful and knowledgeable. When we arrived after a long three days of river rafting, the kitchen had closed 10 minutes before, but they opened it up again to feed us a terrific dinner. It hit the spot.... More

Everyone at this family owned hotel is so accommodating and helpful. The open air restaurant is wonderful. the rooms are nothing fancy but very clean, lots... More
