DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Hotel Central Pacific
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
nothing like visit previous year with family staff for most part was not hospitable with a FEW exceptions/Thanks Carlos, Maria Jose, Maikol and Elias - seemed to be large staff turnover and possibly different management running property very disappointed
Absolutely no problems with the hotel, staff, or the service. The landscaping at the resort is beautiful. Very picturesque. We found lots of spots around the resort to take memorable photos. If I have say something wrong, it would have to be the door. The room is damp because the front door is not properly sealed. Other than that the resort was awesome. Highly recommended!
Major issues with the quality of the 2-bedroom suite we booked. The room did not have the third bed and it smelled like a bathroom. This room was in the older section of the hotel and had VERY dated furniture and bedding. We finally moved to two connecting rooms for the 4 of us. The dinners and lunches were good, but the breakfast buffet was not good. There were lots of flies on the food and not good quality.
We spent four nights here in June. It is nice, with beautiful palm trees and tiki huts, but nothing special. It seems to be an older resort, in need of upgrading. There was some peeling paint, and the rooms are just adequate. They lacked power outlets, so charging multiple devices each day was an effort. The WiFi was very spotty.The main buffet was fine. Each evening they had a different theme for dinner, and some of the selections were very good. Many were average. They do have two specialty restaurants that require advance reservations. Those were quite good. The seafood restaurant had a nice selection of fish and other seafood, and it was well-cooked and presented very nicely. The Latin American restaurant was our favorite. The food was delicious, and the setting and presentation were beautiful.The staff were generally friendly and helpful. However we had an issue at the front desk. We were expecting a package to be delivered by the postal service. We notified the people in reception several days in a row that it was coming, and to please accept it or let us know. The postal service tried twice to deliver it, but the resort would never accept the package. Just before heading to the airport we had to drive to the post office in Puntarenas to pick up the package.In all, it is not a bad resort, but there are better choices available.
I read other reviews before we visited so I wasn't totally shocked. Like other reviews, I'll agree that the quality of the rooms was poor and the food was especially disappointing. The food was bland, overall, and not great quality. I expected more from Doubletree, but it looks like they forgot about this place. The staff, however, is excellent. OH, and if you're sensitive to heat but still want to visit Costa RIca, this is not the place for you. There are no areas of reprieve from the heat besides your room. Everything is open air-and little breeze to push the heat around. They might want to consider enclosing some of the restaurants to make them more comfortable.
