We recently visited Hotel Robledal on a visit to Alajuela. This hotel is a family-run business, and the people could not be nicer. Graciela is a kind receptionist who handles reservations promptly and with nearly perfect English skills. Once at the hotel, her brothers are accommodating hosts – one assisting with the check-in process, another (a licensed tour guide, who we spent a lot of time chatting with about wildlife species and hidden hotspots worth a visit in the Alajuela area) offering personalized tours to hotel guests if desired, and a third serving a typical breakfast (included with the hotel stay) at the on-site restaurant each morning. The hotel property is small (although construction was in the process when we visited), but offers clean and basic rooms complete with amenities such as hot water, cable tv, and wireless internet. This hotel also offers a pool on-site. Although a bit tricky to find (only because the entrance to the property is somewhat hidden around a curve – be sure to keep a lookout for the Hotel Robledal sign if driving yourselves to/from the hotel), the hotel also includes complimentary shuttle transportation to/from the SJO airport for those who do not have their own vehicle.
This hotel is an approximate 10-15 drive from the airport – a great spot to stay for your first or last night in Costa Rica. Overall, outgoing and patient staff made our stay a great one.
