This is a party hotel for adults. Loud music 24/7 and a wide collection of clientele. If that's what you are looking for, then book this place. Just be prepared, its in a run-down area, and many "professionals" visit/work here. It is a fun place, and it doesnt hide what it appears to be.

If your a single guy and looking for a great time, don`t miss the Del Rey. Non stop action with lots of beautiful women. Professionally run, it caters to the guy who is tired of flowers, candy and expensive dinners and a hand-shake at the end of the evening. None of that BS here, the Ladies are Hot and Ready...

Stayed here during a business trip and it is a very rare hotel, it has pretty much everything if you have bad vices. Drinks as much as you want, girls are plentiful, food is good, you can gamble away all night as much as you want. Not good for children but perfect for a stag party.

A big mistake we booked that hotel, we are a couple and we had a very bad experience. We wanted to stay one night in the center of San Jose before going to the Caribbean side and that was a nightmare.Hotel very dirty, very loud as they had the Casino down which we discover after that was the most famous...

The rooms are clean ,service is excellent and prices are decent . Staff was pretty friendly and most spoke English . It is a dream come true for those that appreciate beautiful women . Security is pretty good in the hotel and in the vicinity . The main pedestrian shopping district is like two blocks away. The only downfall is...

I normally stay at the Dunn Inn in Costa Rica. This trip I decided to stay at The Famous Del Rey because a few of my friends were all staying there. The rooms there are average. The bar Casino is always busy. This is not a Hotel for children. Adults only (read between the lines). If you are looking to...

This is a great place. My boy LF spent tons and tons of money here. So much ao that I am sure he couldn't even afford postage stamps when he left. Only negative about this place is that they didn't have a pool, but they do have plenty of other amenities to make up for it!!!

Nice hotel quite central located in San Jose. Nice staff and some English speaking. The service was quite good. The hotel can be a bit loud some times. Everything just worked perfect and the room were quite nice and roomy. The beds were good. The food in the hotel is good. All in all a good hotel.

We went just for the entertainment value and I have to admit, that is the strangest buffet I have ever seen. When we (5 men in their 40s) went to the "sports bar" we thought we would be in a dark scummy room looking at prostitutes on the prowl. The room was modern, well lit and furnished like a TGI...

NOT what it used to be. Oh, yes the prices are still high, but now the hotel/bar is open to all...however, the shortage of tips always blamed on gringo's. Girls...very few Ticas, old ones at that. Most of the "girls" are hard core hustler types from out-of-country. Food sucks, prices for the food is gourmet high...similar quality can be found...
