We went here during the summer months so it was the wet season in Costa Rica. The sun didn't really shine on the beach, which was disappointing, but what can you do? The drinks weren't terrible, but not that strong either. The pool was nice...the rooms were below average for a Doubletree name hotel. The FOOD WAS GREAT! The resort...

We came here as part of a package deal. We read the reviews here, looked at the photos, seemed like it would be a great place. Costa Ricans are extremely proud of their country and always say positive things about everything about their country . . . except Puntarenas. So many locals spoke very poorly of this area and were...

We visit this all inclusive hotel once in a while, mainly because it's the closest to Costa Rica central valley. It takes around 80 minutes to get there, and once you get in you don't have to worry for meals and entertainment. Although it has limited choices, it is ok if you don't mind some gaps. Food is average, so...
