Hotel Punta Islita is a magical place, we were greeted by Luis, who speaks the most beautiful English, better than many Americans. The all around service was impeccable, Luis told us that they were there to serve us and that's what they did and not in a "buttoned up" way. We really felt like family after 4 days we just... More

Gracias Jose! It is a singular pleasure to share Hotel Punta Islita's unique tranquility, landscapes, and intense nature. Where else can your cooking lesson be interrupted by the sight of whales in the distance, and then by raucous Macaws doing flybys? Keep enjoying Costa Rica's magical adventures! More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel a couple nights to celebrate our anniversary. I can't say enough good things about it. The staff was very friendly, the food was delicious and our room was very nice. As Platinum Marriott members we also received a complimentary upgrade to a junior suite. We will definitely return.

Although the hotel apparently offers a shuttle from the nearby airport, driving our own car from was an experience. The hotel advises an SUV and a daytime arrival....you should heed this advice. Even though we had both Google Maps and hotel signs guiding the way, we were still convinced once or twice that we were lost, with visions of being... More

Edgar and the guys at the swim-up pool bar are great! Perfect place for an afternoon drink when the surf dies down on Playa Punta Isleta. They have palapas and a great view of the entire cove. The Autograph Collection gets this one right for sure!
