The rooms were pleasant, clean and economically priced. Completely outfitted kitchens to prepare food at the room, if you choose. Lots of restaurants on sight, nice out door bar.. Beaches are clean and the water is warm... With two large pools in the main area and one at our room we had plenty of water...

The room we have is great for what we need. Good AC, comfy beds, and cool scenery. It's our first night here. I would normally write a review after we leave but this couldn't wait. We went to the dinner buffet at the hotel restaurant Carabelas. It was $21.00 which I expected. Here lies the problem. The food was some of the worst I've ever had. The beef tasted spoiled. Nothing was really edible. Side note- I will eat almost anything. Everything I tried was put aside after one bite. Very disappoin... Read more

This property is well guarded by security. You must show all the proper paperwork to come and go. Our Gate 1 pkg was all inclusive however on more than one occasion the wait staff in the restaurant tried to refuse us drinks. With each incident the manager had to intervene and instruct the staff to bring us our drinks. This got irritating after a while. We found the food in the restaurant fresh and tasty. We noticed long lines to get in as we were leaving so we always made a point to arrive early... Read more

You must visit Playa Blanca, is the best beach in Costa Rica!!! You must go there!!! The hotels is maybe the wort all-inclusive in Costa Rica: Food: Poor, I have no words!!! Pool: Poor, water in bad conditions and ugly design. Rooms: Average, in line with Quality Inn products. Service: Poor Others: No room service, drinks are disgusting, you need to walk a lot. Recommendation: If you want to visit Playa Blanca, I recommend you to book a house through AirBnB or HomeAway instead PuntaLeona hote... Read more

My friend and I changed our travel plans at the last minute, and she picked this hotel. I quickly looked it over and booked it. It's really nice, and we got a great price. What I didn't realize was that this was sort of a "compound" for families and active young seniors. There is a gate with guards to enter, and you must visit reception to obtain a pass to leave/return. You must wear a wristband at all times, which I'm told can make you something of a target in Jaco, if you do decide to leave. T... Read more

Stayed in Selvemar apartments basic but clean and comfortable, we had an iguana living on our roof! Saw white faced monkeys all around the restaurant (its fenced off) Macaws and a Toucan. Shuttle bus to the blissfully peaceful beach not a scrap of rubbish a handy restaurant and water sports should you desire. Lots of birds around here too. It is quite remote from the main road but not a problem for us as we had a hectic few days beforehand. Restaurants very average however staff were friendly

Punta Leona is about an hour and a half drive from the airport, so your best bet is to rent a car. You will be captivated by all the natural beauty of the mountainous drive. On your way, be sure to stop by the crocodile bridge and to drink a fresh coconut called a "Pipa Fria." The staff at the reception is willing to help out with any questions you have about the resort. We stayed in one the apartments called "Arefices." The maintenance and apartments cleaning ladies were so friendly and did a s... Read more

With all these things you need to factor in the price you are paying. The complex does have a bit of a holiday camp feel to it, albeit in the backdrop of the rainforest. Facilities are good, better to occupy young kids while parents chill. Breakfast and dinner is standard buffet style, with bar type food available down by the pools. We felt the need to go al a carte, paying to get away from the standard fayre, for a decent meal. However, not many tread that path which says a more about the gue... Read more

The rooms are great and the a/c works amazingly. The location is stunning--we saw red Macaws roosting at sunset and monkeys in the trees near our room. We also saw a Rhinoceros Beetle on our way back from the bar one night--freaky but still pretty cool! :) The staff is helpful--the pool staff played volleyball with our kids and the bartenders were overly friendly and wanted to practice English with us (we wanted to practice our Spanish!). Karaoke on Thursday was fantastic....what else to say?!... Read more
