I mean. Ticos are great people and friendly already but this resort's employees bend over backward to be helpful and gracious. The food was very good, the infinity pool beautiful, the rooms and little garden patios with their own pool fabulous. The only proviso is that the beach is so so being rocky, but that in itself was pretty cool as we were able to check out the tidal pools and explore a bit.
One final note--the highlight of the trip in a way was seeing the Scarlet Macaws from the Ara Project fly around wild from our private garden patio. Hotel Punta Islita helps sponsor this project and I would like to thank them for that. It is certainly worthwhile for your hotel as well as seeing a flock of these birds every day was in itself worth the price of the hotel.
