We went with a group of family and stayed in the Cliffs Apartments. The Apartment itself had three bedrooms (2 bedrooms with one bed and 1 bedroom with two queen beds) and two bathrooms. The Kitchen is a partial kitchen with a small fridge and sink and microwave and toaster oven...but only a small electric cooker, so don't plan on... More

orientation on arrival -- perfunctory directions that were much more confounding than helpful -- plus a ridiculous threat that if we didn't return the ratty old beach towels they dispensed upon arrival at departure, that we'd be assessed the ridiculous sum of $40. No usable maps were provided, a problem given our distant room assignment, an the curving layout of... More

We have been to Costa Rica 5 times and this place is amazing. It has the best of both worlds in that the Selvamar rooms are tucked away back in the forest with abundant wildlife and it has both a dark sand and white sand beach. Rooms are not big, but who spends much time in the room anyway. The... More

My husband and I loved our recent stay at Hotel Punta Leona. This Eco resort has two large and beautiful beaches to explore. Our bungalow was nestled in the rainforest and we enjoyed seeing monkeys, lizards and tropical birds everyday. We did not want to use a rental car and we did not miss having a car during our stay....

This is a very large resort! good for families. But hard to get around. It is so big you have to take the shuttles everywhere, even to the beaches. But the ground are nice with lots of walking paths. They have 2 beach areas I found one was a little quieter than the other. they also have nice pool areas... More

What I loved about our stay at Punta Leone was the warm welcome from the friendly helpful staff and that the resort was full of locals rather than tourists. What a refreshing change to hear mainly Spanish spoken instead of English. Staff were very patient with us when we mangled their language. The setting is beautiful and we loved that... More

It's a large self-contained compound with a mixture of cabins and hotels. Very attractive setting with lush gardens, at least 3 pools (including 1 very large pool... but not for lap-swimming), and 2 picturesque beaches. It's a nice getaway place- not luxurious but very charming, with all the amenities - air conditioning, outside bar/restaurant, etc. Our room was clean and... More

Costa Rica was great. The resort had some good and not so good things but the good far outweighed the other. Good Beach and pool area were great. Blanca beach was really nice. The hotel grounds and area and wildlife were great. Very spread out but the walk was not an issue. The food was very good. Not your normal... More

Yeah, Punta Leona is great! However there are two parts: the club and the non-club. The club is the typical. You have a wrist band and it is pretty much inclusive. No wrist band....and you get to use the most beautiful banos in Costa Rica...the beach. That's right, you will be blocked from all facilities, even toilets that are less... More

Just returned from a week at the Punta Leona hotel. It is a sprawling property. That actually is a hotel and several places all combined. My room was a 15 minute walk to the beach near the reception desk. They better of the two beaches is Playa Blanca which you need to take the shuttle that runs every 1/2 hour.... More
