Some have claimed their tabs were padded. I have never opened a bar tab there but have not noticed any padding of my hotel...

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.

Wow! When I saw the reasonable rate, I asked my friends about the hotel. They tried to dissuade me, telling me to stay at a classier place, but boy were they wrong. The people there really take notice of you. I've been trying to exercise lately and have lost a few pounds and boy did the ladies notice. You just...

I arrived at Juan Santamaría International Airport in Costa Rica. The cab ride to the hotel del rey is about 30 minutes ($30) depending on traffic. I arrived in the evening. When the cab dropped me off at the hotel del rey there were many people outside hanging out trying to sell you cigars, watches, etc.. Some shady characters, but...

If you are a single man this is not a bad place. Don't expect overly nice rooms, maid service is good, can't walk 10 steps without a hooker aproaching you, their resturant is crap, and their might be some shady drug business immediately outside the hotel. During the day it is not too far from city center with a lot...

We chose the Del Rey, and yes, bought the t-shirt. The three of us separated and were in the bars during the evening, moving from one bar to the other. My sister played the casino. The bars are filled with women wanting to make some money, even hitting on us women, which was ok with us. We felt very safe...
