Situated on a long, volcanic sand beach, this is a terrific location for enjoying the beach with its beautiful sunsets, and the nearby rain forests and nature parks. Lots of activities, water sports, and exciting evening shows are available at the Doubletree Resort by Hilton. Ideal for couples and families.

Overall a Good Experience

We recently visited the Doubletree. The people working at the resort were very friendly, especially the bartenders. Drinks were very good. Food was so-so. Some of the food at the buffet was only luke-warm. Many of the nightly programs were in Spanish - so it definitely helps to understand Spanish. Pools were very nice and room was average. We did have some trouble at checkout - mostly a language barrier and it did all get straightened out.We also did one tour while we were at the Doubletree. There is a tour company setup on the pier - Tiquicia Tours. They are excellent! We used them for transportation to/from the SJO airport, and also did one tour. The guides we were with made the whole day a very fun experience for our whole family. Highly recommended!

Ugly beach and comical food.

Stayed here from July 6-10 of 2017. The resort grounds and rooms probably deserve a 3 or average rating. The beach and local area deserve a zero. I did not see a single person from the resort enter the water at the beach. Very few even set foot on the sand. This would be a great hotel in the middle of Wyoming but it is a beach front property with the ugliest beach I have ever been on. The problem with a dirty beach at a beach resort is that everyone ends up in the pool. The pool was a dirty as the beach in no time. The food was almost comical. My wife ordered a hamburger from the snack shack and the patty was a sausage patty. I chomped into an éclair that had marshmallow as a filling. I knew there would be a problem when I didn't see any other Americans staying at the hotel. The pillows were too soft and could be compressed into a ball in your hand. The air conditioning worked great and the Geckos and Iguanas were fun. The people drinking and peeing in the pool looked like they were having fun. You can't drink alcohol for 4 hours straight and not go to the bathroom.

Fun in the sun

My family and I love this hotel. The staff is always so friendly and accommodating to our family! The rooms are clean and so comfortable. The pools are beautiful and there are so many options to stay entertained during the day; for example, mini golf, tennis courts, beach volleyball, beach soccer to name a few. This year we even had the chance to shot a pellet gun on the beach! The best thing about this hotel are the nightly shows! They are by far the best in Costa Rica! We looked forward going every night to see what amazing show would be performed! Special thanks to Jeffrey and Ta Ma Rico for making us laugh so much. I highly recommend this hotel for families!

Family Trip

Huge disappointment. The room is the only worth paying for. The beach and the food was ridiculously laughable. They have a Seafood Buffet with served only with Tilapia fish and clams. Went to Cana Brava for dinner. It was even WORSE. They have three (3) things in their Seafood salad bar. 1. Ceviche, 2. Ceviche. 3. Ceviche. One of the Ceviche dish was made with Tilapai fish. It was the most disgusting thing I have ever eaten, and I LOVE fish. I have never given any bad review before, but we paid $295 for one night because they claimed that their seafood is exquisite. The "PREMIUM INTERNET wouldn't even download anything. The beach is so dirty and murky. As you probably noticed not a single photo of the seashore posted in their website, due to the unpleasant sorrounding around the ocean front. Don't be the next victim of this place. With that being said, I still love Costa Rica and the people, I just don't like this place.
