If you are looking for a true hideaway where you will be looked after from the moment you arrive until the moment you leave then this is the resort for you.
The only frustrating part of our adventure to Punta Islita was the road journey there; adamant that it wouldn’t be too arduous the journey was frustrated by a two and a half hour traffic tail back following an accident. Arriving some 7 hours after we set of from San Jose we were met by Marvin our concierge for the week.
It quickly came to our attention that there was nothing Marvin couldn’t do; getting used to on the spot attention takes a little getting used to, however once you do it is apparent just how marvelous Marvin can be.
Of course one man alone cannot run such an establishment, it takes a team. There was not one occasion where the level of service could be faulted; the waiting staff, bar staff, golf pro, surfing instructor and horse groom all excelled in ensuring service was their first priority.
As efficient as he was we thought long and hard as to who Marvin reminded us of, our thoughts were confirmed when, at the Punta Islita airstrip, he proclaimed, after a 20 minute delay, ‘the plane is here’; we may very well have been on Fantasy Island!
