We stayed here for four nights to complete our multi-destination tour of Costa Rica. Firstly I would say that the check in process was far from satisfactory, we arrived prior to the allowed in room time and therefore had around an hour to wait after we checked in . Armed with just a map of this large resort we decided... More

This place was great overall. The highlight was the beautiful Playa Blanca, which is a private beach, so it was very quiet and well maintained. The water was perfect. The room was very nice and the breakfast, which was included, was great--a really nice all-you-can-eat buffet. There is a naturalist on staff who can help you find wildlife on site,... More

Let me divide this review in two parts: GOOD: 1. Breakfast restaurant with monkey visits was the unforgettable experience. 2. Both beaches was very nice (no big waves, clean and warm water). 3. Bird watching morning tours and night jungle tours were really good. 4. Front desk stuff was very friendly but unfortunately service requests were not completed. 5. free... More

We stayed here as part of our tour around Costa Rica. We were a bit dubious - it sounded a bit like a huge UK holiday camp from the 1960s. We were, however, very pleasantly surprised. The grounds are huge - don't miss the (free) morning and night time wildlife walks with Alex. Incredibly knowledgeable and a great guide. If... More

Punta Leona gets widely varying reviews but I think that, if you take a careful look and know what you will be getting, you will be pleased with your stay. We certainly were. The main reason is the people; everyone we met at the hotel and in Costa Rica generally was pleasant and nice; The hotel staff were all friendly,... More

The superior room is dreadful. I booked the superior room expecting it to be above average. Forget it these Selvamar Rooms are tatty, old, dull and in need of attention. I asked the reception to explain the "superior" status and they said there was no difference. I asked for a room with a balcony and they were not interested. If... More

Dear Guest, thank you for letting us know your experience at our hotel.
