We chose Hotel Robledal because of the free shuttle back and forth to the airport. We stayed there our last night in Costa Rica. The day before we left, we checked in, put our stuff in our room, and then drove our rental car to the service to turn it back in. The Hotel Robledal staff picked us up and... More

Very helpful and friendly staff. Rooms were large, however quite a few ants in our room. Nicely decorated. If you have your own rental car, make sure you call for directions or look it up carefully and thoroughly beforehand. We were given a police escort from Alajuela downtown as we were so lost! After that, the staff drew us several... More

Great place to relax before a flight or after a flight. The food is very good and the service is even better. They even printed our boarding passes. Worth a stay and I recommend it. Enjoy an amazing country!

I stayed in Hotel Robedal on my last night in Costa Rica. We were picked up by a hotel driver who was pleasant and helpful. In fact, the best thing about this Hotel was its staff.

Dear Lynn, Thank you for your comments... We realized what it felt like musty smell it is a couple of wicker stools we have in our bedrooms. It was not related to dirt or humidity inside the room, specially because the manager personally inspected the room before the room change was suggested by our staff. Our rooms were recently built...

As with pretty much any location in Costa Rica, this spot can be hard to find if you don't know exactly where you're going. Nevertheless, the staff was excellent in dealing with directions over the phone in English. Once you know where you are, this can be a great base for area excursions. At the same time, the beds were... More

We stayed at 4 different hotels during our 9 nights in Costa Rica. They were all in the $60-$90 range. Hotel Robledal was the best one. The location is convenient to San Jose airport.

I went to Costa Rica with my daughter, then 15 months, and stayed at this hotel. They were SO helpful and friendly with me and my daughter. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, with or without kids. Also, the hotel is close to the airport, the breakfast is included and is very good! Excellent hotel!!
