This is the best hidden gem of a property. The staff is accommodating, friendly, and knowledgeable. They go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable. It’s in a quiet area with a garden and pool; the perfect place to relax and enjoy Costa Rica. Their food is served in an outdoor setting and is divine. I will be coming back to Hotel Robledal.

Good Stay

A little further than some from the airport, but they happily shuttle you, what's a few minutes more? Run by the family for years with the third generation now working there. Very friendly, with good food. Happily could have stayed a little longer.

Ok for an in and out

Nicest staff you could ever find. The facility is fine bit not as close to the airport as you might like and thats the main reason I chose this place. But I have nothing bad to say about this place. Good for a one night stay if you are traveling.

Hidden Jewel

This small B&B style hotel was very clean, comfortable and convienient. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Although the menu choices were some what limited the food was outstanding. The grounds and pool were well kept and relaxing. A complimentary shuttle service for the airport was a nice plus. We are looking forward to returning to Hotel Robledal on our next trip to the area.

Great choice by the airport!

Very hospitable staff! Wonderful facility and grounds. Excellent place to stay on your way in or out of the airport. It is kind of hard to find;but what isn't in the San Jose area; but the staff will come get you in their van or, as in our case, came to the rental car location and led us to the hotel. We will stay here again next time we come in or out of the country again!

Wonderful family-run operation

These folks are terrific! This is completely a family-run business. Mother cooks great, quick meals, father keeps the grounds perfect, and three sons take care of your every travel need. We highly recommend Hotel Robledal as a great place to land in Costa Rica, and from which to fly out. They can also arrange your rental car, other transportation, etc., as well as take you anywhere in their small van. A terrific local-style breakfast came with the room (fresh fruit, rice and beans, eggs or fried cheese, fresh-made tropical fruit juice, real Costa Rican coffee, bread, guava jam and butter!). Dinners were very tasty as well. But mainly, we can't say enough about the service. These people really took extra good care of us! We had a few problems (with a previously-arranged rental car, and tickets/transportation for the Tico Train) and the guys took care of it all, quickly and efficiently. We were grateful and happy!

Great Value & Friendliness

We needed a place to stay between legs of our trip and lucked onto this hotel. This isn't a resort or tourist hotel - only 9 rooms - but is family run and very friendly. The rooms were large, clean and comfortable. The dining room is outdoors (wonderful) and only serves very basic meals, but the food was very good. This isn't a place to stay if you want a resort, but is a good place to stay overnight near the airport. We stayed here again on our return flight - we got in late and the staff stayed and cooked us dinner after the dining room had closed. The owners also run tours up to Arenal.
