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

All right fellows! IPJS stands for International Playboy Jet-setter Sensation. That is what I am. I have been to the Del Rey like 50 times. I once met an incredible chick there and had to extend my stay an additional 10 days for her. When she uttered the words "Don't leave, you make me crazy" with that hot latina accent.... More

The rooms here are ok and clean. The bars and the casino are open 24 hours and there is always a lot happening. The location is very central near the main shopping avenue of San José. Staff is friendly but the bar/casino is full of hookers. Price value is good, but book through the internet and you will get a... More

Three bars, 118 slot machines, four card tables and a roulette wheel. The room service cheeseburgers are great and the 24 hours a day 'diversions' are non-stop. The Blue Marlin bar is a never ending source of visual entertainment.

Wow! When I saw the reasonable rate, I asked my friends about the hotel. They tried to dissuade me, telling me to stay at a classier place, but boy were they wrong. The people there really take notice of you. I've been trying to exercise lately and have lost a few pounds and boy did the ladies notice. You just... More

I arrived at Juan Santamaría International Airport in Costa Rica. The cab ride to the hotel del rey is about 30 minutes ($30) depending on traffic. I arrived in the evening. When the cab dropped me off at the hotel del rey there were many people outside hanging out trying to sell you cigars, watches, etc.. Some shady characters, but... More
