Located between the airport and city centre, nothing of interest to walk too. Taxi needed to get to down town where the restaurants and museums are. Staff were not customer service oriented...or very friendly.

I spent two nights at Hotel Plaza Real. One at the beginning of my tour of Costa Rica and again at the end. I would not recommend this hotel. Let me first say that I am not a picky traveller and by no means have unrealistic standards. But when I leave a beautiful hotel with pool, restaurants, spa, beautiful grounds... More

The Plaza Real was a very good choice for us ! We stayed here for 2 nights and we really enjoyed everything about this place. The rooms were nice and clean and offered all the amenities you would need for a comfortable stay. Service was also very good, especially breakfast that had a great variety of fresh fruit and warm...

Our family began and ended a month long trip in Costa Rica at the Hotel Plaza Real. Our experience was that the location was safe, central to shopping, clean, and reasonably priced. We found the area around the hotel to be reasonably quiet and secure. Timely shuttle service to/from airport was available, with secure parking for our rental car and... More

Pretty good hotel if you are staying for one or two nights. Front desk was very nice, interior very comfortable. Only complaints would be that it is a little far from the center of town and the bed is pretty hard, but otherwise very solid. Would recommend.

Hotel Plaza Real and Apartments is a nice boutique hotel. I booked it mainly because it offers a 2-bedroom, 2-bath “Senior Suite” that is less than the cost of two single rooms. Unfortunately, when I booked our stay there, I wasn’t aware that it’s located in a rather noisy industrial area some distance from downtown San Jose, with no close-by... More

Excellent staff attention and cleaness of the rental apartments. Relatively closer to San Jose, aprox 20 minutes, affordable price for the service. The best is the staff attention. I highly recommend this hotel

The hotel may not be The Ritz, but it was nice and clean. Members of the staff are friendly, especially Arturo at the frontdesk and the van driver,Jorge. One can walk to a good restaurant and, if you're inclined, to a casino. Cab fare to downtown San Jose is reasonable.

We had a pleasant overnight stay at the hotel, prior to a flight the following morning. The staff were very welcoming and helpful,including helping us order food. The room was very new and clean with a nice powerful shower. The only glitch we encountered was when we wanted to get what we thought was the free shuttle to the airport... More
