The owners, Daniela and Eric were very hospitable and helpful to me. This is a hotel that you can feel compofrtable staring a whole week or... More

We loved this place!! It is right near the ferry to Tambor, and a short walk to the beach. The new pool and kids activities center is 2 mins away. They have a huge pool with lots of action for famillies. The hotel was very clean, has a nice little pool with loungers. The hotel does not have its own... More

We visited Costa rica for a month and were on a tight budget. For 70$ a night this hotel was by far the best experience we had! Very nice and clean, quiet with a nice pool area. Staff was friendly and the canadian guys very helpful! Highly recommended!

This hotel is beautiful, clean and quiet. It's french Canadian owned since 2008, totally remodeled with nice garden and green areas, clean pool, room with a/c, hot water, T.V. and small refrigerator. No restaurant yet, but they have cold drink(soft and alcoholic) and free coffee. We had VERY good time.

My husband and I stayed here so that we could catch the early ferry to the Peninsula. The hotel is safe, clean, and the staff were friendly. It was apparent that people only stay here to catch the morning ferry! The hotel could use an upgrade, but people only stay there for a few hours, and it serves its purpose!

A previous review for this charming little hotel refers to it as a resort and makes other statements that indicate that the reviewer is confused about which property she is reviewing. THIS is a small little hotel in the CITY of Puntarenas (many, many reviewers on this board do not realize that there is a CITY of Puntarenas, a DISTRICT... More

My husband and I went to Hotel La Punta for our honeymoon in May 2003. This is really a resort for those who are more adventurous than those who want a spa or to be pampered. There is one thing to keep in mind when you go here...it is the jungle. We had to move out of our first room,... More
