It was my first time staying at Costabella though I have already tried other few resorts in the Island. The location was a bit farther than what I expected, however if you're looking for a quiet getaway then this will be a place to go! Check-in was a breeze, kudos to the friendly front desk staff. We booked an oceanfront... More

A beautiful looking compound with a great pool, nice rooms and good spa. Staff are nice. Sadly, the food is the stuff of nightmares. Stick with fruit and you'll be alright...except the bananas...and the orange juice...great place if you're on a diet.

Make sure you are totally clear on your reserved price. Beachfront but not really good for swimming. Average breakfast buffet. Employees need more training in customer service. Not worth the price. Had reservations for one day only .

We are family with 1 year old baby, the resort is ok for its price. There were some serious building work starts at 7am to 7pm, very noisy and actually ruined our stay. The food in the hotel is ok, price for drink is reasonable. Room size is fine but the bathroom is old.

I was pleasantly surprised by my stay at Costabella. Rooms were adequately sized and clean, pools and grounds were great, and beach area was relaxing. Costabella's 'beach' is surrounded by two sea walls- not the prettiest view ever, but crystal clear warm water. Our island excursion, booked through the hotel, was worth the price and a great day out on... More

Costabella has such a nice ambiance. It's the cleanest resort I have ever been to as compared to the other resorts situated in the island. I consider the place as "a home away from home" and it is very comfortable as ever. We have never missed a summer vacation here for the past four years now... And, we'll most probably... More
