We just returned from a week long stay at Punta Leona. We were there for our honeymoon and loved it! It was the rainy season, so yes, it rained every day starting around three but, we used that as an excuse to take a daily afternoon nap. The hotel offers so many things to do and see we only left...

My new husband and I stayed at the Hotel Punta Leona for our honeymoon in Costa Rica. It's located about 5 kilometers from the front entrance on the highway, and therefore seems very secluded and rural. It's actually a sanctuary for wildlife, specifically McCaws, which are beautiful but very LOUD. We stayed in a Selvamar room and got the honeymoon... More

Hi, I've just read the 19 reviews already posted and can understand the majority of them despite the differing opinions. We first stayed here back in July 2001 and enjoyed it so much we deliberately returned this time. However, whether YOU will enjoy a stay at Punta Leona will very much depend on what you are expecting and are used... More

I've read some of the other reviews on this site and I believe that most of the negative reviews are from people who were expecting something different. Punta Leona is part traditional "all inclusive" beach resort, and part nature preserve. True, property maintenance is more "good enough" than "over the top", but how many beach resorts own and maintain a... More

Punta Leona was charming, clean and spectacular. The rooms are well appointed, clean and the air conditioning was working to perfection. The restaurant served marvelous buffets with plenty of variety and above average quality of meats. The beaches were out of this world. I saw sea turtles and many tropical fishes snokeling just off the beach. There was evening entertainment... More

We stayed for two days at Selvamar. The room was terrible - broken bathroom door, worn out beds & bedding and musty. The restaurant was an expensive buffet only and the food mediocre. We had to go through three manned security gates to get from the highway to the reception desk. Although the place was deserted, they wouldn't let us... More

We had a great time, resort was beautiful. We had a cottage which is not 5 star but was clean - bug free, and had everything we needed. Resort is 750 acres Beaches are beautiful and clean - we swam with wild sea turtles at playa blanca, lots of nature hikes - food was great. If you don't like to... More

Punta Leona - one of the most magnificent places for vacation - quiet, integrated into nature surrouding the resort. The resort itself is larger with two private beaches separated by a formation of rocks. One with dark sand directly next to the pools, the other one with white sand approx. 15 minutes of walking time. However, nobody has to worry... More

My brother and I stayed here for four days and the main reason I rated this above average was because of the travel tour agent (Adrian with CRT Travel). The resort would've been a fantastic place for a family since it has everything you want close by and in a nice family oriented atmosphere (like having canopy tours on site,... More

I stayed at Punta Leona on December 2, 10 and 11 (last week) at both Selvamar and Leana Mar. I am a single dad, was traveling with my two sons (9 and 12) on the front and back ends of a cruise (Cruisewest). It was convenient to our departure site for the cruise. I am an attorney, not a travel... More
