Punta Leona Hotel and Club
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Wonderful location in the middle of a rainforest location. Lots of activities for the nature lover as well as the casual vacationer. The food was varied with quality offerings. The drinks were superb, especially the Punta Leona. Lots of activities for all members of the family.
This place is a HUGE COMPROMISE: I upgraded to "All-inclusive" but discovered that this club/hotel is in fact semi-inclusive: with several items on menu that must be paid for & all drinks in bottles (including imported beers/local fruit juices) only available to their club members. But hang on: I highly recommend the "all inclusive" option because its a 20 minute drive to the main gate & buying lunch/dinner could set you back plenty (US prices are not cheap!) One of the positive aspects of this hotel is that it is quite environmentally conscientious (recycle program/energy efficient bulbs) & NO SMOKING (1 designated smoking area). Fellow travellers: I will give you the "real skinny" on this property- avoid it because its open to any Costa Rican who has a membership or day pass (ie: you will be competing with many locals for the dirty pool, for the loungers, or you'll be renting a chair at the beach). There is zero nightly entertainment & animation (Spanish only) is strictly for kids. Food is recycled & completely lacking in variety (or range of items offered). Quality of food is fair to good. When you go to Playa Blanca or the poolside restaurant you'll see selections you cannot have (unless you pay) and too many cheap fried Western styled dishes. Now, my partner & I are actually super easy to please: so for us we got over all the clubs short-comings (including its expansive/illogical design) & soaked up the nature & made the best of the vacation. We had fun b/c we're not used to frills when we travel. But when I think of the price we paid- we've been to many other places (even DR & Cuba) which offered far more (food/entertainment) with no restrictions for far less than this location. Skip this property unless you are big on Spanish, no-frills/little service & nature (& don't mind competing with CR members). For us: it was 4* for nature (monkeys, macaws & iguanas) but 2* for everything else. I cannot recommend this property to anyone but the hardiest thrift minded family traveller who may do better on a non inclusive property close to local restaurants (& other hotels)
We stayed for 7 days. Plenty of options for food, and not overly priced. My kids loved the Leona Nachos! The staff was very friendly and helpful. Security guards all around which made you feel safe. Even though it was very forestry, there were no bugs or mosquitos. For us, it wasn't super far to get anywhere by walking. A lovely place--we didn't participate in pool activities as we didn't understand a word of Spanish. Playa Blanco beach was great--and actually better than snorkeling off Tortuga! Thanks.
This is place is enormous lots of buildings well organized, very good to able to park close to beach, there is a private part and public area for parking so if you have a wrist band to show that you are staying then you get to drive up a hill to the private parking area. Whilst on the beach 🌊 there are monkeys 🐒 in 🌲 tree if your lucky you might see mum baby.The in the restaurant is not badly priced you can either choose from a buffet of goto the grill part were they cook for you fresh ingredients. To pay 💰 you can either use cash, credit card 💳 or charge to the room. The swimming pool looks good The rooms are very basic which is fine. Worth staying over even if it's just one/ two nights. It very wheelchair friendly as there are lots of slopes to get up and down.
Beautiful house in a serene location with 360 degree view of the bay and gorgeous sunsets from balcony. Loved those colorful macaws and other birds every morning. Pool is great. The owner is the best, so helpful and accommodating.Access to the house specially last 20 minutes via that rough terrain is somewhat intimidating.
