Originally we were not going to stay at Hotel Praiamar because we had another reservation at another hotel nearby, but we had some problems. So Hotel Praiamar was recommened to us and so we went there. I was hesitant because I never had heard about the place, but I could not be so wrong. Once we entered we were quite surprised. A pool and a jacuzzi were waiting for us inside. We needed a room for 5 people. As we were searching urgently for a new hotel, we stopped to ask for rates on different hoteles in Puntarenas. No hotel was lower than $220 por a 5-person room. Hotel Praiamar charged us $170 with breakfast included. The owner even told us we could do a late-checkout at 2pm without any charge. Once on the pool we asked for caipirinhas to try them, we ended up ordering 10 of them (2 for each person in our group). Completely recommended. The rooms are quite comfortable, showers have hot water (even though it would be strange to bathe in hot water in Puntarenas). Our room had A/C. In general, the hotel is well taken care with good decorations. To be honest with the review, I shall also include the not so good things about the hotel. The location is a bit far from the center of Puntarenas (around 5 kms). If you own/hire a car, this shouldn't be a problem, though. No indoor parking but a person comes to watch after the cars at night (the hotel has good illumination outside also).
