We cannot overstate what a wonderful time we had here. The two weeks our family just spent here were magical. The beauty of Costa Rica, the luxury of Punta Gabriela, and the kindness and skill of the Punta Gabriela family: Edwin, Minor, Liz, Evelyn and Flaco made us feel like life-long friends and family, and going up with Adam the...

We've traveled the world and have never had personal attention given to us quite like the staff at Punta Gabriela. Edwin (AKA the Tico Ricardo Montalban) puts Mr. Roarke to shame; because in addition to making our dreams come true, Edwin is a world class chef! We had a family reunion of sorts at Punta Gabriela and the 11 of... More

We just got back and I miss it already! Punta Gabriela is a vacation home paradise in the jungle cliffs overlooking the coast. It is the perfect mix of jungle and beach. Villa 1 was spectacular, with the most beautiful view I have ever seen. The property is very private, clean and beautifully decorated. We saw monkeys, toucans and sloths... More

My coworkers and I stayed here while working a festival for a week and we are still talking about it. The staff, the property, the views, all made our time so enjoyable. We felt so spoiled by the staff that we were actually sad to be leaving them. It felt like being at home. I would recommend this place to... More

We just returned from a fabulous trip to Punta Gabriela with 4 adults and 8 girls! Punta Gabriela gets better with each visit! Edwin makes you feel so welcome and his staff is fabulous. Minor takes fantastic care of the grounds which are meticulous. We have to ask Edwin for his Chicken Wing recipe or his mango pancake recipe! Edwin... More

This is a perfect place for vacation. Everything from the moment you get off the plane is taken care of for you! The food is amazing. The property is immaculate. The view is genius. Waking up with direct views and sounds of the Pacific Ocean is amazing. So many things to do here, see here, and go here. The Punta... More

My girlfriends and I went for a weekly girls trip. We weren't sure what to expect. We were blown away. We were taken on several day trips. Horse back riding through the jungle, zip lining, helicopter tour, shopping in the local city. We were treated like family! The service was beyond anything we could have ever expected. The food, the... More

Punta Gabriela is a beautiful place to make your home base when traveling to Costa Rica. The main house, three private villas, 2 pools and 3 hot tubs are set on a mountain top with magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean and the property and grounds are exquisite and gorgeously detailed. There is even a helicopter pad on the roof,... More

As soon as I got to the property my eyeballs popped out of my head. This property is incredible. You must go yourself to experience this place, because no picture or review can do it justice. Literally everything was thought of. All of our needs were meet to say the least. When we got of the plane we we're pick... More
