Punta Leona Hotel and Club
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
The good is the Carabella restaurant. Fine buffet with normal and creative takes on themes. I haven't had anything I didn't like. Many selections for entrees, salads, drinks, and even desserts. Fine ice cream, just the ticket for overcoming 1000% humidity.Room was small, but not too bad. Double beds, a little creaky and dented. Had to unplug the clock radio to plug in my charger. Shower was okay, good hot water. Not much room for toiletries.Worst was the device to put your room key in to run the A/C. Meaning you go to breakfast and return to a sweltering room that will be comfortable just about the time you go out again. Eco friendly I'm sure, but a great moneymaker for the resort at the expense of their guests' comfort.
We had a wonderful time as family with teens. The hotel has access to 2 white sand beaches (I prefer playa Blanca), with lots of trees and wild animals. Food was good. The hotel rooms may need some updating.
This private and fully-secure wildlife reserve a short driving distance from Jaco, is a 5-star property located on a private beach. It is so large, I would call it more of a compound than simply a hotel! Homes are grouped by Central American country names and are separate,free standing units equipped with excellent a/c, Wifi (router is in the room), strong water pressure in the shower and very comfortable double beds (2 in each room). Great satellite television with numerous English language channels. Three restaurants and two snack bars onsite, some can be a long walk away. The main gate is probably 3 miles from the actual reception desk, winding thru dense rainforest foliage. Excellent private resort which supplies internal shuttle service during daylight hours, but without a vehicle, you really are somewhat marooned here. Be prepared for soaking rains at any time and the humidity is stifling day and night. The property is about 1.5 hour drive from San Jose, on the Central Pacific coast.
This place is not a hotel and club. It is a massive compound! After driving almost a mile in from the gated entry off the main road, you check in. Check-in was great and the staff very helpful. This place is just ridiculously big, you would be in trouble if you didn't have a car. Our room was ok, a little tight with two beds and a small bathroom. We stayed in the Selvamar room, I believe. The restaurant near this area was closed the week we stayed, meaning we had to drive across the compound to eat. The beaches and pool are also very far, you literally have to drive for 5+ minutes to get anywhere in the "resort." It lacked activity, not many things happened as advertised. It also got dark at 6 pm, then there really wasn't anything to do. I think we were in bed between 8 & 9 both nights there, mostly out of boredom. We stayed in for dinner one night. The buffet was expensive, and food average at best. It was a very un-inviting atmosphere as well. The next day, we drove to Jaco beach to eat and hangout. Much better choice. The beaches at this resort are very pretty though. We enjoyed a day on the beach. That is really the only thing making me give a 3 star review.
Located in a massive compound in the forest, near the coast. Very humid. 'Minibar' is understood here to be an empty fridge with a jug of tap water.House keeping of rooms is poor and intrusive. Wildlife everywhere,including macaws and monkeys, armadillos and raccoons, but never intrusive or problematic. Great experience of Costa Rica's abilities in eco-tourism. Bungalows can be sweaty-far from the reception, which is overall of limited responsiveness.Management responds swiftly to issues. Access to the beach is not impressive. Beach towels available, with a cumbersome arrangement with towel cards. Expect close encounters with (rather harmless) wild animals.
