Pretty handy central location, within a shortish stroll to the centre of San Jose. Tidy room, acceptable breakfast and very nice staff offset the otherwise slightly tired 1980??s feel to this hotel. Couple of broken fittings in the room and a faulty toilet flush were irritating. Since it was only a one night stay and we didn??t pay the full room rate, it was fine, but I would not want to stay longer.

We stayed for both our first and last night in Costa Rica. The rooms are comfortable and nice and the breakfast is good value. There is a casino but we never went. The gym on the top floor was pretty reasonable.

Staff and Manager very helpful. The food in the Restaurant is super good. Thank you Chef Andries Mendez and Mr. Javier Soto. Chef Mendez is a great Chef. Captain Javier Soto helped me avery day with my food selection since I don't speak Spanish.. The people at the front desk very helped my with all my questions. The room was very nice and quiet. I also liked the gym. Location is the best. I enjoyed Sabana Park, walking to food stores and bus stops. I hope I can stay there again soon. Ange... Read more

We enjoyed our stay at the Palma Real for 10 days! The staff was beyond helpful and knowledgeable of all the activities around the area! They assisted in setting up trips and stated which were great and which were just okay! We were never disappointed. Javier, Jose and Ederick were the best! Javier and Jose made reservations and all arrangements for our excursions for reasonable prices! They pick you up and dropped you in front of the hotel! Maria at the Reception desk was great too!

This was our second time to stay at Palma Real. The staff are friendly and helpful. The room was cool and comfortable and quite attractive. The free breakfast is reason enough to stay here. So many interesting fruits,cheeses and juices. Always an egg and meat dish and lots of great breads.

Have stayed at this hotel in the past due to the free transportation from the airport to the hotel. This time, the transportation from the airport was wrong and would only allow 1 person and not the 3. Thankful for my friend who lived there to help translate. We ended up taking a cab to the hotel. Prior to leaving the airport too found out our hotel night was cancelled, I had cancelled a prior Orbitz night stay which in return cancelled the night I was really staying. They did get us a room.

Jennifer Zuñiga was so helpful and friendly during our stay. She went out of our way to ensure that we had food that was vegetarian. Her excellent service is the reason we will remember this place. Thank you!

Great hotel, we just stayed one night before leaving for our next location, but we liked it. There is a construction site outside so if you want to sleep through out the night make sure to get a room facing another way.

The absolute worst hotel I have ever stayed at while traveling. It is a scam and I have never felt so unwelcomed and so uncomfortable at any other place I have stayed it. It was clear that this staff, specifically the night staff did not want us to be staying at this hotel. As we watched other tourists being dropped off at their hotels, staff greeted them warmly. When we were dropped off we did not even get a hello when walking into this hotel. Night staff was extremely rude and acted as if we w... Read more
