Hotel robledal is family owned and ran. Very clean and the people were great. We arrived very late at night and they were there to meet us at the airport. We spent two nights there before going to the coast. They arranged a city tour of San Jose for us and took us to where we were to meet the... More

One bed was comfortable; the other was very hard. Room was stuffy, and also quite noisy with voices from the pool. The hot tub was not hot. No hot tap water. Saving grace: the staff was extremely accomodating of our late arrival and need for a *very* early airport shuttle. Five stars for the staff!

Hotel Robledal is very convenient if you need to overnight near the San Jose airport. It is a safe, quiet and comfortable place to stay if you want to avoid going into San Jose. They offer easy reliable free airport transfer and it's only a 10 min drive to/from the airport. The rooms are clean, and nice. The breakfast (included)... More

Robledal hotel was very pleasant place to stay for a night before heading to the coast. They picked me up from the airport which was extremely convenient. The territory is nice and large and there is a pool to chill out in. The rooms itself were very nice, although mine felt a little dark as you couldn't open the windows... More

The grounds of the hotel are immaculately landscaped and cared for creating an Oasis in the middle of town. The staff was so friendly and kept the hotel spotless. They also speak very good English which helped as my Spanish is still a work in progress. We stayed here both at the start and end of our trip. They waited... More

This hotel was our first in our 3-week Costa Rica holiday. Due to flight delay we did not arrive until after midnight, and even if we were not able to inform the hotel about this, we got a warm welcome. The breakfast was great, and the room so spotless and clean that we immediately booked for the last night before... More

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
