We have discovered a jewel of a hotel right near the San José (SJO) airport! The Hotel Robledal is definitely the best option for your stay in Costa Rica if flying in or flying out the following day. In fact, you'll find the Hotel Robledal such a friendly and well-maintained hotel that you won't want to leave!
We didn't realize how close Hotel Robledal was to everything -- just 9 minutes from the airport, 2 hours to the Arenal Volcano, only 1.5 hours to Manuel Antonio, 3 hours to Monteverde and only about 20 minutes to downtown San José (on a good day!)
What is nice about this place is that the whole Guzman family puts in a helping hand, so you will feel very well looked after.The rooms are very nicely decorated and the beds, very comfortable. Cable TV and CNN International is just a click away and the pool and jacuzzi are very refreshing!
The restaurant serves delicious food, especially the complimentary breakfast: Get ready for one of the best "Gallo Pinto" breakfasts prepared by Dona Guzman who knows how to put together a good home cooked meal!
This Costa Rican hotel is also a model in sustainability. Not only do they recycle, but they do their own composting, there is an organic garden on site, and they treat their own gray water waste in ecological pools that pull out the damaging phosphates from the detergents etc. that the hotel consumes. This family takes environmental conservation very seriously and they even have a project to protect and regenerate the local owl population.
If you have extra time during your stay here, we highly recommend you book a few local tours with Emmanuel who has an expert eye for birding at local nature hot spots such as the nearby Carrara National Park or Poas Volcano National Park.
This is also the best starting point when heading out on a Desafío Adventure Connection.
