I don't know why anyone would complain about this property! We had a AMAZING trip to Costa Rica! I have stayed at over 50 Hilton brand properties all over the world. Keep in mind that this is a Doubletree -- so the rooms and property are consistent with the Doubletree brand -- nice, but not ultra luxury. If you want... More

I am currently staying at this hotel as part of a Costa rica tour. The tour so far has been great and I have stayed at some amazing hotels here in Costa Rica. This one is not one of them. Probably the worst all inclusive I have ever stayed in. 1. Room very dated. Bathroom even more dated. No bidet.... More

We have visited this hotel several times through the years. It is about 1 1/2 hours from San Jose, the trip is easy on well paved and maintained toll roads. Although it is located in Puntarenas, to me an undesirable location to visit in Costa Rica, it appears separate from the community and a place all to itself. My children... More

This place is not your typical Hilton. the room we stayed in was close to the beach with a decent spa tub. We were there on our honeymoon, so i was expecting a little more or maybe an upgrade. The room was good sized and open, but the bathroom, while decent sized, was a bit old. The food at the... More

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.
