Its been several years since i've been here. It hasn't changed much. Still entertaining. Rooms could use some improvements. As could the food. But overall stay was ok. The staff was helpful and polite.

It's an OK place to stay but they triple billed my credit card 1 charge when I checked out and 2 more times a day later. I have not got the money back. I don't sujest staying there but if you must don't use a credit card for the room.

While the Casino and Bar offers a nice layout to socialize the rooms can be noisy with music from casino all day and night.. And if you like sleeping on beds as old and as hard as rocks this is the place for you. If your going for the "action" the hotel/casino offers I would suggest staying in the hotel...

I Chose this hotel specifically because I could get a room with a balcony (5th or 6th floor). Checking in was no problem since I already had a reservation. The room I requested though (a room on the 5th or was it the 6th floor) with balcony) was not ready so they gave me another room (same floor with balcony)....

Not much to add about what this "Pink Palace" as it is called is all about. Can't imagine though how anyone could seriously give it a very good or excellent rating in terms of a hotel, forgetting about what draws guys there on the first floor. Glad to see no couples have rated this place. i have stayed there a...

The rooms here are ok and clean. The bars and the casino are open 24 hours and there is always a lot happening. The location is very central near the main shopping avenue of San José. Staff is friendly but the bar/casino is full of hookers. Price value is good, but book through the internet and you will get a...

Three bars, 118 slot machines, four card tables and a roulette wheel. The room service cheeseburgers are great and the 24 hours a day 'diversions' are non-stop. The Blue Marlin bar is a never ending source of visual entertainment.
