Great value & location!Posted Aug 26, 2014
Pros: Location, value for money, wonderful people!
Cons: The linens are getting a bit tired - but then so am I!
Location: One block from huge park - outdoor activities (soccer, american football, jogging, biking etc); $ 3 cab ride to pedestrian mall downtown with museums!
My husband and I stayed at the Palma Real for 9 days in August. He was competing in the North, Central, and Caribbean World Masters Championship at the National Stadium in San Jose. The location of the hotel was perfect - a 10 minute walk and we were at the stadium! As for the hotel itself - it was lovely - had everything we needed! And the staff - well, they were fantastic! From Javier, the concierge, to Juan & Sebastion on reception - and everyone else - we could not have asked for nicer, more helpful, caring people! Our room was perfect - we were facing the inner courtyard so it was quiet and we had a lovely view! The hotel has a small lobby bar, a restaurant (breakfast was very good), a pretty well equipped gym, free internet access (and access to two computers) and a small casino. We do not tend to gamble BUT the drinks and food in the casino were excellent - especially the prices! Much much cheaper than the restaurant! Would we stay there again - absolutely! PS do take in a couple of excursions - ask Javier - he will set you up!

Great place for easy access to San Jose AirportPosted Jul 27, 2014
Pros: Proximity the the airport was my first choice; decent restaurant, pleasant staff.
This was my second visit to the hotel. It was a recommendation from Expedia for close airport proximity. It is an older hotel, with comfortable rooms and a pleasant staff, who go out of their way to ensure a nice stay. If you stay walk up to the gym on the 5th floor and out on the rooftop patio, great view of the mountains.

DirtyPosted Jul 11, 2014
Cons: transportantion to the airport anytime the client request it and all about the maintain
My room was dirty it looks like no body clean it after the last person. The restroom had "pubic " hair around, the bath curtain had dirt all around in the down border and the entire bathroom smell to urine.. the bed cover was not clean I could see the dust or dirt on top I arrived late around 7 pm and i was so tired for this reason I could changed hotel I took a taxi to the airport because I should request the transportation 48 hours what I was no able to do, anyway.. for the price should have transportation any moment the client request it. I won't recommend this hotel for the almost 100 dollars I pay there are many more close to the airport and cheaper.. Big mistake I did

Outstanding customer service!Posted Jun 27, 2014
We stayed at this hotel the night before we flew home after a vacation in Costa Rica. The two guys at the front desk were very helpful - helping us find a place to eat in the evening, locating a grocery store, and arranging a wake up call and early (4am!) transportation to the airport - including breakfast boxes! The room was very nice, and the wake up call and ride to the airport were prompt the next morning. I would definitely stay here again.
