My wife and I recently spent a week in Puntarenas at the Doubletree. The location is quite nice, however the beach isn't great stellar for sunbathing and swimming. However, the pools and grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The meals are a little above average, and the mixed drinks lacked adequate alcohol. Bedrooms are beginning to show their age, as...

My friend and I booked our vacation here through a LivingSocial deal that gave us 5 nights stay all-inclusive stay in a junior suite room along with airfare. For the price we paid it was well worth it! The food here is very good for a buffet style restaurant, and the two specialty restaurants were very good as well. The... More

Just got back from a three day stay at this "all-inclusive" resort in Puntarenas. I would actually give it 2.5 stars as it's not a terrible resort and the service here was actually OK. I normally don't write reviews but felt I should about this place because the description and photos are very deceiving. My girlfriend and I stayed here... More

This is a vacation spot for San Jose residents wanting a vacation spot by the sea. The weather was perfect, humid, but sunny with a few down pours at night. Latin music and food like empenjadas and papas. There are several pools with the second on really for kids. Bring your pool toys but they supply a few with occasional... More

Even though the room booked was not available and I was notified the day prio to my arrival, Tathiana (reservation manager), wrote me a note apologizing for the inconvenience and very nicely, accommodated in a excellent room, ocean fron and with a lot of extra amenities. She surely over delivered what was promised. The hotel staff are amazingly friendly and... More

Very nice hotel with excellent people at the service. Food could be better, but they have enough variety and different choices for every preference. For kids, there are activities and very funny early night shows. Recommended.

Not sure where they got the Doubletree name from but building 1 and 2 are in dire need of upgrading. When we arrived we received a room in building one that had no bathtub, mold all over, and no working A/C. Now anyone that travels to tropical places knows how devastating that is. After calling the front desk twice we... More

Do not stay here if you are not a local. We made the mistake of traveling to Costa Rica and making reservations here. As soon as we walked in, we realized this was not what we were looking for. We quickly found out that is is a spot that people from San Jose take their families for the weekend. We... More

Had a great time and excellent stay at Doubletree Resort in Puntarenas! Excellent weather and great site seeing tours, made Costa Rica a great place to travel to. Enjoyed the scenery, food, room, service and the pools.

The experience is very good, not complaints about food and hotel benefits, but the activities for people which is hosted during weekdays decrease a little bit, so my feedback is not make differences and have a full activities itinerary for non weekend days.
