We rented an apartment in the large Punta Leona property and were sorely disappointed. Playa Blanca is the only draw and it's possible to find individual rentals to access this beach. We'll choose that option next time we decide to travel for this area.
Punta Leona used to be a lovely place (as many people recall from decades back), but the hotel and properties seem to have stuck in a time warp.
Probably the most frustrating thing was to arrive and realize that we had no beach towels in our room. Since we were staying an an apartment on the property, we would have had to drive 10 minutes back to the reception, wait in line, and get some towels.
- Playa Blanca - it's a lovely beach. It can be busy, but it's nice.

- Pools - there are different little pools in some buildings. We opted to use the small pool in our apartment building once and went to the main hotel pool once. Both of these are okay.
- Memories - My husband enjoyed going to Punta Leona 30 years ago as a teenager, so for him, it's someone fun to be back.
- Value for money: Horrible. We once stayed in a lovely private apartment in Punta Leona that is maintained by private owners for the exact same price. We'll opt for that choice next time, or head to Herradura.
- Time warp - The hotel company seems quite pleased to keep their basic investment in the prime property. There is a new hotel call "Arenas" within Punta Leona that has apparently begun to attract PL club members who are tired of how poor the property is maintained.
- No customer service. We called in advance to try to resolve an issue with our booking and were asked to hang up and call a separate number 3 times.
