Punta Leona is a big private property, lots of trees and nature with pretty much everything you would look for in a hotel. 2 Different beaches (one has white sand) are just beautiful and there is great feeling of safety you won't have on public beaches. To move around I had to use my car every time. Pools are ok... More

We stayed in the Salvador Superior, and the room was decent. The shower was not very powerful and it was hard to get all the sand off from the beach. But if you're looking for a place that has everything, this is it. The beach is beautiful. Definitely need to do the all inclusive rate, which would include all your... More

We love the area, the lush vegetation, the bird life, the walks among the huge trees, the loud sounds of the Mackaws & parakeets, the snorkeling in Playa Blanca BUT, it's time the rooms have an upgrade! Our room needs paint, the shower head was so blocked we had to remove it, the pillows are lumpy & hard, time for... More

I came here with my wife for a weekend getaway. None of us knew the place and we thought that we'll be getting to a nice hotel. Much to our surprise, the rooms are incredibly far away from the beach and they are certainly smaller than what you might figure from the photos. On our first night we went to... More

Very nice, relaxing location tuck away from the hustle and bustle! Room is ok, but food is lack of variety! Wildlife is a bonus! May was their low season and it showed! Pools are not up to standard, lack of activities! We took the all inclusive and it was not all that good! Very limited liquor/wine!
