So if that's what you are looking for great, though I would recommend the Cocal casino in Jaco beach over this. Many of the girls are quite beautiful, but I found them not as skilled as Canadian girls. Sort of a production line mentality as opposed to GFE. The rooms are two star. No pool of course, or beach.

Not a family place as it is simply a brothel and casino. There are lots of girls from Colombia and the Dominican Republic that have residence permits to live in Costa Rica based on being trafficked to Costa Rica via sham marriages to old Costa Rican men.

This hotel is a blast for the single male traveler. I have been to Del Rey a few times and will keep coming back. Clean, safe, friendly, and fair pricing. The food is decent and room service fast. Take time to get to know the bell men and housekeepers and your every need will be met promptly. (Tipping helps too!)

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
