We were a little nervous for this trip based on some of the other reviews we had read but we were extremely pleased in the end. The food was excellent and the accommodations and service were great. It's hard to imagine a better value for the money than this hotel offers. We would definitely recommend and will be back in... More

We were supposed to stay in building three as per our reservations but ended up in building one. No big deal as we did not spend much time in the room. Weather guaranteed. Food was excellent except for the seafood restaurant. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Booked a tour from the company on the beach by the pier. It was... More

We nearly cancelled due to the poor reviews for this hotel, but we were glad we did not. The food in the restaurants was excellent and there were no queues. The speciality restaurants were also excellent. The hotel was busier at the weekend with locals coming down from San Jose, but this added to the experience. The beach is not... More

Went to CR on spring break with my kids and spent a couple days at the Doubletree in Puntarenas. The hotel itself was very nice. We enjoyed the pools and food in the main and specialty restaurants. Overall we had a great time here. One thing to note- as an all inclusive there is open bar here. It did get... More

DoubleTree Central Pacific in Puntarenas Costa Rica is a true resort on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, about 75 kn from San Jose. It is a huge place, with several pools, a couple of restaurants, and at least five bars, nothing over three stories high. At first we had a few problems, like the safe's battery was dead and...

We had read quite a few reviews before staying here and I thought I was going to hate the room and the food, but we were pleasantly surprised. There seem to be a lot of negative reviews for building two -- we had no problem at all. The room was clean and quiet -- no noise from the pool or... More

9 people family visit to Costa Rica. Great facility. Super clean. We felt safe. The boys swam in the beach and the pools. The food was super delicious and the bar drinks also. We put a serious dent in the Pina Coladas. Very attentive, quiet, friendly staff. Lots of kids and activities. There is also an adult only pool. The... More

Traveled to Costa Rica for a week for Spring Break with 3 friends. We booked through a groupon at a great price but were afraid that the actual resort would fall short of expectations. But, we were pleasantly surprised. Big, clean resort with friendly staff. All-inclusive was awesome; the buffet was a good mix of western and local food, the... More
