“Spirit and body telaxation resort for all”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Wonderful place to be in contact with nature enjoying the comfort of their clean, air conditioned bungalows. We stayed at a two bedrooms (one had a TV, besides the other in the living room), with 2 bathrooms (delicious warm water, plenty of towels), dinning_kitchen room, with all appliances, even a candlestick! Surrounded by tropical forest, could see and hear all kind of birds, lots of red macaws and tucanoes, visited their butterfly garden with my granddaughters, who where amazed of «the blue magic morphos» and the other smaller and colourful ones. Enjoyed both the white sand beaches and swimming pools areas, spectacular sunsets. Their staff are very helpful and take care of the environment. We treated ourselves with a tasty lunch at one of their restaurants, with a menu for all to be more than satisfied. Recommend the fruits smoothies at Playa Blanca! Got free shuttle drives to wherever we decided to go. Always is a pleasure to be at Punta Leona.

If I returned to this area of Costa Rica I would not hesitate to use this hotel again. Enjoyed watching the monkeys during breakfast, which was a delicious buffet. There are two beautiful private beaches. Swimming pool is huge, water temp was great (June). Lots of Macaws on property.

we stayed in the Bella Leona Apt. 2 br./2 baths, kitchen, living room, dining rm. covered patio, shared pool with 3 other tenants and our own covered pool patio with propane grill. Just like renting a beach cabin. all utensils, plates, pans and kitchen utilities provided. Store close by to buy anything you need at resonable prices. Buffet meals at restaurant were $22.00 so we cooked our own, most of the time since we did go on a fishing trip and had more fun grilling them on the pit. Coolers are alowwed on the beach and beer and drinks can be bought at the store. Bar near the beach at poolside is also available for mixed and frozen drinks. Did not see any monkeys, mainly because they hang out at the restaurants stealing food and we cooked our own breakfast. Saw Toucans, Scarlet Macaws Iguanas and racoons that were incredible to see. Must rent your own golf cart or have vehicle because this place is really spred out and there is ALOT to see and do. Our apt. was very clean, good water press. and hot water! Highly recommend!

We stayed here for two nights on our way to Montezuma. The room was nice, the breakfast buffet was very good. The dinner is a little pricey but tasty.

There are a lot of activities which may the resort great for families and still enough excitement for the adults.

The beaches are wonderful!

This was the last place that we stayed on our tour of Costa Rica and like most other guests, we loved the site, especially the beaches. Our room was clean and comfortable with plenty of towels in the bathroom and excellent air conditioning. Beatrix and Guillaume on reception couldn't have been more helpful and keen to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. They sorted out our tours for us and even gave us a reasonable discount, which was a bonus. The grounds staff and most restaurant staff were very pleasant and helpful. We did the morning and evening tours with Alex who is very knowledgeable and passionate about the wildlife, if not so much about the guests! Playa blanco has to be the most beautiful beach in Costa Rica and we enjoyed swimming there every day, followed by delicious food in the on site restaurant. Whilst the site is a very long drive from the entrance to the hotel there is a free shuttle service for those guests wanting to eat off site. Thank you to the staff for making our stay so enjoyable.

Before I start, I will admit that we probably didnt go at the best time. The hotel failed to meet most of our expectations. I will start with the good, once you are in the water and look back at the shore you are greeted with a sight that can only be described as unreal. How the jungle meets the sandy beach is just amazing! However that's unfortunately were the good ends. The water was murky brown/Green not the turquoise/Blue you see in the pictures, the food was ok but nothing to be looking forward to and finally when we were checking out I asked for late checkout and was denied only to find out that my friend had called and was granted until 2pm!!! When I called again and asked for an explanation they said we have a group coming in at 3pm so I said in that case we will check out at 2 giving you 1 hour to clean the room a concept they failed to understand. When I asked to speak to the duty manager I was told he was in San Jose, so much for duty manager!
Luckily this experience does not take away from the amazing country that Costa Rica is.

Dear Guest, thank you for taking the time to write your comments. We are sorry to hear that your visit was not what you expected since our goal is to please all our customers. Seawater from our beach is crystal clear most of the year but in the rainy season you might be surprised by how much the weather and climate of Costa Rica's rainforests can vary. Many times after a rain storm or constant rain, sand and stones can give a touch of murk to the ocean. Check out time is at 12:00 noon and as a courtesy of the hotel in some cases we can extend it a bit but it depends on the occupation that we have on that day because if the hotel is full or if we have groups entering we need at least 3 hours to clean the rooms properly before they check in. Thank you again for your visit and receive our apologies for any inconvenience.

During my stay at hotel
Punta Leona I enjoyed waking up and having a continental
Breakfast while enjoying the view of the Forrest and seeing monkeys. I also enjoyed the activities during the rainfest, the different bands that performed . The beach was close and beautiful where I did paddle board and snorkeling. Also the visit to the mariposero and the walk at night where we were guided by a tour man and saw the wild life like snakes and spiders . I highly recommend hotel Punta Leona and it services.
