In searching the web, you will see a number of reviews for this hotel and what you will find there. I am sure upon first read of most of these sites, you think the people are exaggerating about what you find there. I thought the same. Well, what you read elsewhere is all true and then some. I was there... More

I have been to costa rica many times and had never stayed in a hotel in the downtown area, I felt that i made a good choice, room was small and directly behind the DelRey but the breakfast in the morning and the staff were very helpful to me I will stay here again hopefully in about 6- 8 months.

Probably one of the best places on earth for a single guy. I got in at noon on a Wednesday and took a cab directly to the Del Mar. I went to the front desk and asked for a room. It was $60 for a king size bed that came with a mini fridge and lock box. Having read previous... More

Its been several years since i've been here. It hasn't changed much. Still entertaining. Rooms could use some improvements. As could the food. But overall stay was ok. The staff was helpful and polite.

It's an OK place to stay but they triple billed my credit card 1 charge when I checked out and 2 more times a day later. I have not got the money back. I don't sujest staying there but if you must don't use a credit card for the room.

While the Casino and Bar offers a nice layout to socialize the rooms can be noisy with music from casino all day and night.. And if you like sleeping on beds as old and as hard as rocks this is the place for you. If your going for the "action" the hotel/casino offers I would suggest staying in the hotel... More

I Chose this hotel specifically because I could get a room with a balcony (5th or 6th floor). Checking in was no problem since I already had a reservation. The room I requested though (a room on the 5th or was it the 6th floor) with balcony) was not ready so they gave me another room (same floor with balcony).... More

Not much to add about what this "Pink Palace" as it is called is all about. Can't imagine though how anyone could seriously give it a very good or excellent rating in terms of a hotel, forgetting about what draws guys there on the first floor. Glad to see no couples have rated this place. i have stayed there a... More

If you are staying in San Jose and want to meet friendly women this is the place to stay. The rooms are decent, the restaurant has a good breakfast buffet also decent lunch and dinner options. Some have claimed their tabs were padded. I have never opened a bar tab there but have not noticed any padding of my hotel... More
