I stayed one night at the start and end of an Intrepid tour. The exterior of the hotel is imposing and severe, with gates around the building. It's also set in an industrial location and close to a noisy main road. But, the welcome was warm, and all the staff are friendly, helpful and available 24 hours. The rooms are... More

We left SJO at about 5:30 AM on Friday after finding out our flight was canceled, and a helpful taxi driver suggested we try this hotel as we didn't have anyplace to go. We get there at 6AM, and the staff was very pleasant and helpful. They only had 1 room left, a very nice (and huge) 2 bedroom suite,... More

The hotel was a short 10 minute drive from SJO and it is located in a quiet neighborhood. It's a perfect locale for late night arrivals or early morning departures. There were a few restaurants within 3-4 blocks.

We arrived at the hotel with the help of a taxi due to the fact no one knew the location. When arriving, the hotel was bared up similar to a prison & had one tiny lobby. We were sure we didn't have it right by the look of the pictures on Trip advisor. But it was right. Although the front... More

I stood two days, never have I stayed anywhere where the staff was so helpful. Breakfast is brought to your room with friendly smiles. When I needed help finding a local store, the front desk attendant and the owner went above and beyond. He drove me to the store and back and was so ever humble. I would recommend this... More

Now the except part...When I checked in I needed to pay..used hotels.com for the booking. The next morning as I was walking through the lobby area I was stopped and was told there... More

We headed towards San Jose towards the end of our trip having no idea where to stay. Having stayed in hostels most of the trip, we decided to treat ourselves to a nicer hotel. We ran into this beauty by chance and we are so glad we did! The price was great, the staff was amazing and the hotel room... More

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
