Friendly Staff, Great Stay

We stayed at the Hotel Palma Real for one night prior to an early flight out of SJO. The hotel is a little further from the airport than some, but it's clean, modern rooms, friendly staff and proximity to La Sabana Park and National Stadium made it an excellent choice. I would rate their staff as the most helpful and friendly we encountered in our travels in Costa Rica. The rooms were comfortable and we ate at a restruant close to the hotel. They have an excellent breakfast and we had a very helpful, staff member help us with a quick check out. They do offer an airport shuttle which is not free, but is very inexpensive and efficient. We'll stay again.

Nice stay

We enjoyed our stay here. The breakfast was awesome. We had to change rooms do to a broken phone and air condition could of been cooler but all in all a nice stay😀👍🏻There is a casino where you can get drinks and a meal for a reasonable price. Rooms are clean.

Great Value for Money

The location is a little out of the way in terms of both the city center and the airport. The room is quite adequate with god air con, bathroom and bedding. The restaurant is very quiet but the food was also quite well done. Staff was fantastic and super helpful, even though i don't speak Spanish. The casino is tiny and basically made up of poker machines with 2 tables which was a little depressing, however gambling was not the purpose of my stay.Overall great value for money and would stay there again.

Great Hotel

Well I just came back, I was there from Monday the 5th to wednesday the 7th, they have really nice rooms, the best customer service, they also have really good options to take if you want to know the city or go to the beach they can take you there at a good price. BTW the hotel doesn't have a pool but they give you access to one near, what it has inside is a Gym in case you wanna stay fit after all Costa Rica's food. The only thing I will change is the price of the things at the mini bar like who's going to buy a bottle of water for $5 when you can buy it outside for $1.50 anyways everything else was good

Strange things in our room

We stayed one night and were woken at around 05:00 by a loud radio or television.The room had been cleaned but someone had obviously been in the room after that as there was half a carton of milk and some plastic beakers on the counter, a used bar of soap in the bathroom, a room keycard, a pen top and a kids drawing on the table - strange!
