My wife and I needed a quick get-away from the big city and landed for a night in Las Brisas (11/2/12). We took the advice of Trip Advisor bcause it was #1. Yes, we know that Puntarenas is not very appealing upon entering at the main highway! Patience. The avenue where Las Brisas is found is a nicer area. The weather was perfect and we really liked our oceanfront room. There were a few problems, barely hot water,a non-functioning safe, big stain on celing in bathroom. The room was over-priced. But we did enjoy it! The pool was nice. We ate lunch there on Thursday and waited 45 minutes for a so-so lunch. Thursday evening was great. There were no "pimps" hanging out but families, kids, babies in strollers enjoying the weather. The breakfast was good. Very good coffee. We rested as we planned but will not return here.
