We arrived in San Jose after a very long day of travel. Palma Real Hotel was easy to find, clean and the price was right! We walked next door for dinner. Breakfast in the morning was decent. This fit the bill for a one night stay on our way to Santa Teresa.

Unfortunately we spent our last night of an otherwise fantastic holiday here. It was near the airport, which was the reason we stayed there. The sheets didn't look clean, the towels were grey, the toilet was smelly, the bath didn't drain, the walls were paper thin so we heard everything from the next room, the breakfast was horrible - need I go on? As the kids pointed out, we are lucky enough to normally stay in nice hotels (not expensive ones) so we shouldn't complain when once in a while th... Read more

Very close to the national stadium and a large park, plenty of restaurants and cafes nearby. Room was clean and spacious with all amenities. A nice quiet place in the middle of a busy area gave the best of both worlds.

Here for a 2 week job, customer booked the hotel for us. I had my concerns but can say everything is above board. I would have rather stayed at the crown plaza but honestly can't complain. Breakfast is complimentary, the bar is fully stocked and everything I've tried for dinner here has been satisfactory.

We stayed at this hotel for one night after a long haul flight from UK. To be honest we were surprised at the four lanes of slow moving heavy traffic that greated us after we left the airport and were thankful that we were in a taxi. Outside the hotel looked nice, ground floor dining area ,reception clean and tidy corridors on upper floor - carpets looked quite dirty and could do with a clean. Our room was a little dated, no view at all from high thin windows as such, looked over the back of th... Read more

The location of the hotel is in a industrial area. The walls are thin and you can hear your neighbors. The bathroom tub was chipping and rusty. My husband and I left the property and did not stay the night. The staff was really friendly.

I stayed several times in this hotel and what I like is the fact that each double room is equipped with 2 queen size beds, the hotel is central so you can reach in 5 minutes the city centre, in 15 minutes the airport (without traffic) and the breakfast buffet is better than some others I have seen.

Great staff, clean rooms and decent location. We were told the airport shuttle service would be free, however ended up having to pay a fee of US$5. So a bit disappointing. However the food was great and the staff very accommodating, so overall very happy with our stay.

Family vaca before heading off to the jungle. The breakfast was good and wait staff friendly. Offered shuttle and tourist attractions. If this place had a pool it would be perfect, but all in all, no complaints. Got in late & still able to order dinner which was greatly appreciated.

-Nice area location for this hotel. Friendly staff with a fast check-in and bell services. Nice big hot breakfast. A little priced dinner but good. Excellent rooms and services. Valet parking. (very limited) closed to the Futbol stadium. Safe place.

A good hotel for a nights stay. The staff are friendly. They let us check in early although made us wait an hour when they clearly had rooms (they said we could get a room straight away if we paid an extra $20). Beds are comfy and clean but the whole place needs a bit of an update, a lick of paint and some new furniture. We ordered room service which was really tasty. Some of the things in the mini bar looked liked they'd seen better days. The hotel is very close to a nice park and some nice loo... Read more

What a wonderful experience. The staff were welcoming and helpful and made a point to did whatever they could to make for a great stay. The hotel is tastefully furnished and conveniently located. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. (Very important to have a great bed!) Breakfast was extensive, delicious and well manned. Overall, a wonderful hotel with great customer service.

Great Italian restaurant right next door to the hotel. Los Olivos make a reservation because there always seems to be a 30 minute wait. Danny was the best waiter, personable, attentive and funny. Not to mention the food was excellent. Okay now back to Palma Real. The morning front desk staff excellent. Restaurant staff excellent during breakfast. Toilet issues not resolved during stay. Not sure I would stay there again.....

I have to admit that I have choosen this hotel just because of the price, since I was on a tight budget. I have found a very nice atmosphere, friendly and professional staff, a cozy room, even a restaurant with many vegetarian options. Highly recommended if you need to stay in this area.

I visited in November 2015 and stayed in a Junior suite leave the second floor. It was close to the reception desk and during the rainy season so I got a fantastic price. The Palma Real Hotel is located right off off the large Parque Sabana on the edge of San Jose Costa Rica. Even though my room was located close to the reception area but noise levels were always low. I tremendously enjoyed the suite the four days that I was there. Again this was close to a year ago but my experiences with th... Read more

Staff is nice and attentive. We were assigned a double room initially, but we asked to be changed to a king room, no problem at all with the request. Room was very clean. Breakfast was well served. Strong Wi-Fi signal inside and outside of hotel. Great location. I would come back.

We had to change our room request to have a double bed instead of a king bed. They changed that without any hesitation. The hotel arranged for a shuttle to pick us up from the airport, this was a seamless transition and made our arrival very quick. The hotel staff were very friendly. The hotel is very clean. The breakfast was very good. I would recommend anyone to stay at this hotel.

I only stayed here one night but would gladly have stayed longer. I arrived well ahead of check in and was told no problem, that my room was ready. The gentleman that helped with my baggage was very professional and friendly. The room was very nice, super comfy bed and I loved the bathroom. There is a mini bar with prices listed. There is also a lobby bar, restaurant and room service; which I look advantage of. The tray was served beautifully and my spinach ravioli hit the spot. I also was offer... Read more

Only stopped for 1 night before moving on. Nice room and comfy bed. Reception staff were very helpful. Plenty to choose at breakfast. Only negative comment was the Barman ripped me off with my change. I was too tired to make a fuss at the time.

Casino fine,good food,friendly BUT beware of smaller cost items.For drinks I usually got a short pore and was overcharged for a cognac that was just a poor quality brandy.When I asked the barman for a bottle of water he ASKED for ?5.I just walked away. If he thought I was very rich of witch I am not people don t get that way by being taken by thieving bartenders.The prices are high enough without having to deal with this.

We only stayed the night on our Costa Rica tour and had a very early breakfast. That was nicely fixed and very good too. The room was clean, sober and with comfy wide beds. So I would gladly return. Not much more to be said.....
