The staff were friendly and helpful. The included breakfast was surprisingly good and not the typical continental breakfast you get at most places. The room I stayed in (19) was clean and on the small side but since it was the end of my trip I did not mind one bit, I was happy for some AC and privacy after... More

A great value close to the airport, Hotel Robledal exemplifies the hospitality that is ubiquitous in Costa Rica. We used it to bookend our Spring Break week at Manuel Antonio (See review of Hotel Verde Mar). As others attest, your hosts will do whatever they can to meet your needs. They returned me to the airport the morning after our... More

We selected this place to stay a night before we flew back home. It was a little challenging to find on our own. Utilize their airport pick-up services and it will be a breeze. They gave us some great advice to go and pay our exist fee the day before which truly made a big difference the next day. They... More

Nice, family-run hotel, very conveniently located near the San Jose airport. Fantastic, friendly service. For example, staying open for dinner a little late after my arrival towards the end of dinner hours. Grounds are pleasant and rooms while basic are very clean and comfortable. Excellent spot for a first or last night of a trip. They have a shuttle and... More

Run by a familly, this place is safe, quiet and nice... the restaurant and food are very good, staff is very polite and helpful.. they help us a lot for the process to return the car after our trip was almost finished in Costa Rica. Not too expensive, they have clean rooms and nice pool to swim in. Room are... More

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Robledal on our last couple of days in Costa Rica. Although the hotel was overbooked when we arrived (despite making a reservation 1.5 months in advance), the staff apologized and put us up in a nearby hotel. We arrived later in the evening and although the restaurant was closed, they made us dinner... More

We love the hotel and find their service exceptional. A great place for beginning or ending a trip to Costa Rica. We were a little frustrated trying to drive from the airport to the hotel, using the printed instructions on the hotel web site: " The best way to get to the hotel is from the SJO Airport. Once you... More

Shuttle from airport was quick and efficient (and an excellent introduction to Costa Rican driving). The staff were friendly and helpful. They even managed to produce two excellent late meals of local fare right at restaurant closing time. The room was clean and the beds comfortable. After a hot local breakfast, the shuttle driver took us to the rental car... More

This hotel had everything I needed and more. Initially I was looking for a nearby airport hotel, had stayed at the Holiday Inn Express before and was unsatisfied. The driver, Joshua, picked me up from the airport in under 5 minutes. When I arrived, the treatment was very personalized and unassuming. The hospitality was like no other place I've stayed... More
