A friend an myself recently stayed at the Fiesta and had a great time. I read some reviews and had low expectations. I'm not sure what the negative reviewers wanted but I'm guessing something similar to club med. The resort was great our room was much better than expected, a very clean 2b/2b with kitchen. Maid sevice was great. The... More

We booked three days in September at the Fiesta through an auction by Skyauction.com. While the Tico's are the most wonderful and generous people, the Fiesta is not worth your time. The resort is undergoing remodeling and it was a pleasure to wake each morning to the sound of hammers and metal saws at 6:00 AM. We were given a... More

I can't start telling you the dump this is. We got there between 5 and 6 pm after a pleasant drive from the Airport to Puntarenas. They are remodeling, which they felt it was not worth mentioning at reservation time, so the registering process was dismal. We found our way to where we should check in, a ballroom type of... More

We are a north American family living in Costa Rica. We were looking for somewhere to go for a couple of nights and not too far from home so we reserved at Fiesta in spite of the input we got from many locals that Puntarenas is a pit. We went expecting to only use the pools and activities on the... More

The hotel is no really nice. The rooms are small and a little dark. I went with my husband but we made a mistake. We didn't pay attention to the hotel name and we went to relax. It is very noisy. People are always screaming. If you have kids then this is the best place in the world. The good... More

This is a hard review to write because there is so much to comment. Prior to booking my trip, I read TripAdvisor. Once in Puntarenas & the Fiesta, I questioned the reviews. The Fiesta Resort & Casino was purchased by the Hilton and it will be a Double Tree hotel by 3rd quarter 2007. They are currently under some minor... More

My husband and I just returned from a 6 night stay at Fiesta Resort and Casino in Puntarenas. We were there from May 11-18, 2007. As many have said before us, the resort is beautiful, the pools are great, and the room very comfortable. However, the beach, food and liquor were definitely not outstanding. First - the good! The highlight... More
