Fun place for a couple of beers and whatever else you may be into. The staff and others are not pushy but quite friendly. Drinks are good and priced well. The place is showing it's age however and might do well by a little attention.

This is definitely a single man's hotel! Do not bring your wife & kids! Drinks are cheap compared to US prices & food is mediocre at best. Not very many casino tables (Pai Gow poker was not available). Their black jack rules are weird/different. But of course many men go there for the ticas & at least half are decent.

Over the past 20+ years I have gone to the Del Rey to gamble, drink, acquire the services of a young lady for the evening and dance across the street at The Key Largo Club ( also owned by the Del Rey). For the past 6 years I have been married to a Tica and haven't gone to visit because...

My uncle and I had heard about the Hotel Del Ray before we came to San Jose and where fairly sure of what to expect once we got there. We chose not to stay that rather just stop in and appease or curiosity about the place. The Del ray is a no frills establishment that is more centered around the...

I've been to Costa Rica many times so I'm very aware of this hotel. This hotel/bars are known to frequent men travelers as "ground Zero" in an area called Gringo Gulch. Certainly a place for male sex tourists where there are many "working girls" that frequent the place. On certtain nights there can be 50 or more women patroling the...

Frankly speaking this is a star rated brothel. One of the best single male travel destination. There are two bars and a casino at the lobby. There are lots of sexy latinos as freelancers plying their trade. You can very easily link up with the girls and take them to the room. The girls are very friendly. The staffs were...
