My husband and I stayed here for a week. We had a king suite with a plunge pool. Every evening we sat in our private plunge pool reminiscing about our day. As the sun went down the sounds of wildlife increased - birds, monkeys geckos. We'd wait for the fireflies to come out before heading in. The food was delicious and there were plenty of different things to choose from. Our favorite dishes were the fresh fish and pesto pasta. We ate at the only alternative restaurant in town one night. The Red Snapper was fresh and delicious. No "frills" at that restaurant but definitely worth going to for at least one meal. Our activities included zip line, horse back riding and kayaking -all super fun and the same guide, Bialis, went with us for each activity. We felt totally safe and taken care of throughout our entire stay. The concierge guys, Luis and Marvin, checked in with us regularly to ensure our comfort. We had two massages at the spa, one regular couples massage and one that included a bath and a glass of sparkling wine. Both massages were great, not sure the bath and wine were worth the extra fee but pleasant nonetheless. We had a private dinner on the beach scheduled for our last night but it rained so they moved it under cover at the beach club restaurant. From that experience, I would recommend canceling if it rained. Dining in the regular area was very pleasant without paying for extra. We loved Punta Islita! Beautiful views everywhere you look, super nice people, relaxing and fun. We feel so lucky to have spent time there. Pura Vida!
