We can highly recommend Punta Leona Hotel. It’s beautiful with the beaches, pools and restaurants. Especially the bar convinced us because of the extraordinary service. Reiner was simply the best and always obliging. There is also Minigolf, tennis, basketball and ping pong. It never gets boring!
Best for breakfast/lunch/dinner!

My parents and I visited the hotel and came across Leon Marino Restaurant. We ended up eating here each night of our stay. The food was delicious and the service was even better! Reiner, the supervisor and our waiter, Eder were so attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. Any special request we had was no issue and more than anything they were incredibly nice. I would visit 10 more times if my vacation days allowed me!
Beautiful location off the beaten path

I stayed at the Punta Leona with a Road Scholar tour group. This is more like a resort than a traditional hotel and requires a lot of walking and it's pretty isolated. I liked the tropical location and the beautiful pool area and beaches. We were in bungalows in the Honduras section which were convenient to the restaurant and a small pool but the big pool and bar was quite a walk away and the shuttle did not run regularly so it was quite a hike in the heat and humidity. The Playa Blanca beach (the one without a pool) was very pretty and had plenty of places to sit and enjoy the views and a nice bar/restaurant area, but it was only accessible by the shuttle. My room was very basic but comfortable enough and the air conditioning worked well. I would have liked better water pressure in the shower. The food in the restaurant was good and there were several options. If you decide to stay here be prepared for quite a bit of walking.
A Beautiful Paradise

We stayed in the Jamaica area of this resort. The room was simple, but adequate as you don't spend a lot of time there. Two beds, one dresser, with a small fridge inside. Bathroom with stand shower. Note - AC does not go into bathroom, but there is a large window open over the shower area for circulation. Good sized closet with shelves on one side and a safe, and places to hang your clothes on the other. There is a lighted pathway to the main area where you find the two pools, beach, and a bar and restaurant. You can take a shuttle bus to Playa Blanca where there is also a restaurant and tables near the beach. Playa Blanca is beautiful and great to walk around at lower tide to see all the rocks and creatures in the tide pools. Food is good. We enjoyed the fish dishes the most, and their fish ceviche was the best we've ever had. Chicken wings at the bar were surprisingly tasty. Guacamole was not the best, and their fish tacos left a lot to be desired. You can enjoy the buffet at the room area, or use either restaurant at the beaches. It is my understanding when they are busier reservations are required at the sit down ones. The breakfast buffet included an omelet making area, and my daughter enjoyed a daily omelet. There are tons of fresh fruit and assorted breads, as well as pancakes, sausage/bacon from the buffet too. While enjoying your breakfast you can watch the Capuchin monkeys vie for spots to sneak in to steal your food. The staff is great about keeping them away if they do get in, but they are quick and we learned not to leave our food unattended at the table as they will take advantage of that opportunity. They are a lot of fun to watch, and there were babies to ooh and aah over as well. There is an onsite butterfly garden, and they offer tours and also a walking tour of the nearby grounds. The site is also home to a Macaw sanctuary, so you see them all around and they have nesting boxes for them too. The property is very clean and all staff is courteous and so helpful. All staff wore masks and enforced masking while on the property. All in all a very enjoyable visit.
So glad we upgraded to this resort!

This was a mother-daughter trip, and we upgraded to the all-inclusive option for our stay. So happy we did! It’s about 60 miles from San Jose International, but once you get on the ‘National highways,’ it’s a smooth drive. Beware potholes on any other streets! The motorcycles and huge trucks deserve your attention at all times to avoid incidents. The staff was wonderful - especially Rainer (who made sure we always had special drinks to sample) and Victor (who made a point of fixing my mom a Tequilla Sunrise at our first breakfast) at the various bars, and Tayron for the butterfly garden and the night-time nature hike along the resort’s private trail - as they are also a wildlife preserve. With 2 different beaches to choose from, multiple pools, and 3 restaurants (plus bars, of course!) the resort has everything you need to relax and enjoy this beautiful country. Oh - the water on the resort is potable - so no worry about drinking from the tap or eating the fresh produce offered in any of the restaurants. There is also a small chapel (if you are Catholic) to attend mass. It’s also a club for many locals - so the weekends (Friday night through Sunday afternoon) get a lot more crowded. I can’t wait to book my next trip. If you want to see all that Costa Rica has to offer in one place, this is where you want to stay.
