We stayed at Hotel Robledal for the night before our flight from SJO the next morning. The owners/staff there were very nice. The rooms were okay, but the beds extremely hard (I love hard beds, but they had no give). The American Airlines flight from San Jose is at 8 am, so we couldn't take advantage of the breakfast which... More

We always appreciate when our customers leave their reviews on Tripadvisor or other sites on the Internet. Good reviews are always motivating and it keep us enthusiastic to work... negative reviews always make us wonder what happened and we look at them as a growing opportunity. On this review particularly, it is not very clear to us why this guests... More

We chose Hotel Robledal because of the free shuttle back and forth to the airport. We stayed there our last night in Costa Rica. The day before we left, we checked in, put our stuff in our room, and then drove our rental car to the service to turn it back in. The Hotel Robledal staff picked us up and... More

Very helpful and friendly staff. Rooms were large, however quite a few ants in our room. Nicely decorated. If you have your own rental car, make sure you call for directions or look it up carefully and thoroughly beforehand. We were given a police escort from Alajuela downtown as we were so lost! After that, the staff drew us several... More

Great place to relax before a flight or after a flight. The food is very good and the service is even better. They even printed our boarding passes. Worth a stay and I recommend it. Enjoy an amazing country!

I stayed in Hotel Robedal on my last night in Costa Rica. We were picked up by a hotel driver who was pleasant and helpful. In fact, the best thing about this Hotel was its staff. The room was musty and smelly. I requested a room change, but it smellet the same. The rooms are in great need of a... More

Dear Lynn, Thank you for your comments... We realized what it felt like musty smell it is a couple of wicker stools we have in our bedrooms. It was not related to dirt or humidity inside the room, specially because the manager personally inspected the room before the room change was suggested by our staff. Our rooms were recently built...

As with pretty much any location in Costa Rica, this spot can be hard to find if you don't know exactly where you're going. Nevertheless, the staff was excellent in dealing with directions over the phone in English. Once you know where you are, this can be a great base for area excursions. At the same time, the beds were... More

Dear Timothy, Thank you very much for your feedback, we always appreciate when our guests let us know what they like and don't like about the hotel facilities and service. Our mattresses are orthopedic, they are semi hard mattresses, some guests would like them, some other will not. However we will make a survey to determinate if it will be... More

We stayed at the hotel the first night of our recent Costa Rica trip as we landed in the evening. Airport pickup was very punctual even though we landed about 45 minutes late. The hotel was a short drive away and quick which was nice after a long travel day. The rooms were simple but clean. The grounds were very... More

We stayed at 4 different hotels during our 9 nights in Costa Rica. They were all in the $60-$90 range. Hotel Robledal was the best one. The location is convenient to San Jose airport. We stayed 2 nights (27-28th May) and we were very pleased. First, the property: it is very nice, spacious and kept immaculate. Second, the room: we... More
