Punta Leona Hotel and Club
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
We are here now as a family of 5 staying in the Arenas apartments. Positive:-beautiful beach-food is good; seafood is fresh-pools are nice-exposed brick in apartment is pretty-staff are so nice-dependable shuttle-views of wildlife: macaws, crabs, monkeys, iguanas.Negative:-We were excited to have a balcony overlooking ocean, but there were only two cheap worn white plastic chairs. They should make the balcony more inviting!-They should gut the brown 70's tile which is throughout the apartment. It is old and ugly.-They should put up curtains we could actually open to enjoy the beautiful view.-Even though there was a device to warm the showers, they were still lukewarmish...definitely not hot.-Everything is overpriced here; like it is a 5 star resort, but is actually more like a 3.
This is based on a room at Selvamar and visits to Playa Blanca.Positive:- Staff is great, especially wait staff at restaurants and bars.- Food is delicious - highly recommend the breaded corvina at the Playa Blanca restaurant area.- Bus service to Playa Blanca is convenient and come regularly.- Less than 2 hours away from San Jose, so it's an easy drive over.- Lots of nature and wildlife.- Comfortable beds.- Love Playa Blanca with relatively white sand and nice ocean (a little bit of rocks) / Playa Mantas isn't my favorite as it's darker sand.Negative:- It took 2 days to get some facial towels and they didn't give us the proper towels.- The wild animals came into the restaurant and were eating off of people's plates and the staff did nothing about it.- I heard several times that people have been killed by trees due to poor maintenance. - Cars have gotten stuck at the long (10 minute) entrance into the property and even fallen off into the ravine. We saw a car stuck one of the rainy nights.- We arrived early but had to wait until after check-in time to get our room. Don't plan on getting your room right away if you arrive early.- Bathroom is relatively small and shower is weak.- Worst wifi / reception of any hotel I have every stayed at (works only at the reception).- Side pool (not main pool) is not heated so it can barely be used :(
Upon arriving, hotel reception could not accommodate our family. We needed either a room on the bottom floor or a room with elevator access. The best that they could offer was second floor without elevator access. The staff was unwilling to find a solution that worked for us. Room was very outdated with disgusting appliances that were unusable. The showers only had either scolding hot water or cold showers. Yet there was a sign outside the shower to regulate water temperature which was imposible to do. I do not recommend this hotel to anyone and I will not be returning.
This place has potential but it is way too large. As a result, the pool is falling apart, there is mold in the tiles and the rooms are musty. The staff is friendly, the there are nicer places to stay down the road. We checked out early and moved to the Pelicano Hotel. It was right on the beach and the food was great.
The room was very nice, the facilities were fairly well kept. The dining was great, as they served buffet style for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Food was presented well was hot and tasty. The service was excellant as well. We would defineately go back if and when we are in Costa Rica again. (The beach and the pool were super. Snorkling was great)
