Grounds were immaculate. Foliage was beautiful. Hotel was part of a larger reserve that included >4000 acres. JW Marriott and private residences with a golf course and horse stables are included in this gated paradise. The hotel room was comfortable overall. Difficult to cool and the hot water/ cold water dance is something one gets used to (never perfectly temperate... More

We were not encouraged by the JW Mariott to eat at this wonderful little non-commercial spot. The staff so inviting and the open air dining was tucked in by the pool with many ceiling fans- absolutely comfortable. The food was spot on Pumpkin Gnocchi with mushroom Alfredo delicious. My wife had amazing vegetable lasagna. My daughter had a great chicken... More

We stayed at La Posada in June 2013 at the start of the rainy season. Fortunately we had little rain whilst at this location but when it falls it's heavy. Our air conditioned bungalow was well equipped with large comfy beds and coffee making equipment with coffee replenished daily. It was also close to the pool although we spent most... More

We have stayed at this Hotel in January of 2013. The Customer Serivice was extremely unprofessional. We had issues with our room but the staff did not care. Be careful, because most rooms have a locked backyard/terrace door. I asked many times to open the door but the staff was unwilling to do so. So basically we were unable to... More

Thank you to the staff at Hacienda Pinilla and especially the La Posada staff. Your friendly service made our trip special. The lovely property offered gorgeous beach and inland views. Our room was spacious and comfortable with a lovely outdoor space which allowed me to enjoy the mornings with the birds, iguanas, and monkeys. The only challenge was regulating the... More

Hotel is in a good location. Bed is good and firm. Bathroom poorly constructed. From here you can go to different type of beaches that is suited to your taste and liking. Lots of animals to see if you walk around the huge propetry. You can hear the howler monkeys all over. They have shuttle service and will even take... More

This is the second time that I stay in this hotel and every time is better. We were at a suite (casita) and it is great, with a large fully equipped kitchen, dinner table and living room, also with a private terrace. The bedroom is great and so the bed.

It was one of the best experiences in our lives. My new wife and I stayed for an unforgettable weekend. We will always remember the pristine beaches, great service at the restaurant, and good golf. We also enjoyed the horseback riding at the beach. And it was a treat been able to be connected all the time to work through... More
