We have been in the hotel in April 2007 for some nights here are our findings. The 2 Beaches are the best of it all, take them away and not much is left. I am sorry to say we did not find much too truly and honestly promote the hotel. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and found out most... More

From the security guard interrogation at the entrance, to the 20 minute wait for checking in, this hotel was a fine example of the service industry doing disservice to its clients. After going to our room, we opted for a swim - 10 minute drive to the room and 10 minute walk to the pool - only to discover we... More

It's about time that I've written something about Punta Leona. I've never written a review before, but since we use travelocity often, I figured I'd write about some of the places that I've been. Punta Leona was the first time that my fiance, then boyfriend, had ever been out of the country. We were a little wary because we don't... More

Stayed here Aug 7-10. The place is big and is in the rain forest. We stayed in the Selvamar rooms. They were a bit small, but clean. The outside needed to be power washed and maybe a new paint job. The rooms are close to the buffet rest. This is the only one open for B,L, & D. They have... More

Just returned from Costa Rica. A local friend living in Costa Rica made our reservation for a 3 night stay in Punta Leona. We arrived by a long ( 5km)winding and very narrow private road which leads to the hotel but we nearly got an accident over there because the road is much to narrow for busses and cars coming...

If you are looking for monkeys, raccoons, great beaches, a huge jungle and lots of nature activities you should try this hotel. If you are the kind of guy that just wants to lay near the pool, look somewhere else.

If you like the pacific coast and want a vacation on the shore, this is the place to stay. Multiple swimming activities and sun, sand and sea. Lodging is excellent and you never know what animal will be at your door. Excellent food also in the restaurant. Recomend for the activities and location.

My husband and I and our two young children stayed here for a few days. We thought that it was a very pretty location with lush tropical foliage and flowers, and lots of iguanas and parrots - had that rain forest/jungle feel. The beach was clean and suitable for little kids (no major surf) but not as pretty as some... More

We checked in, saw our room, then immediately checked out and went to Villa Caletas (which was amazing, by the way). Punta Leona does have a nice beach. It's very 'family resort' - lots of activities by the pool - they have minigolf! (which families might love - we thought it was awful). Probably great for families. There were lots... More

The Punta Leona was great. It has everything a vacationer could want right on its' property. The service is good, the rooms are nice and there is plenty to do for families. It is also visited by a lot of locals too. They offer tours and packages leaving right from the property plus have plenty to do there like zip... More
