I am torn between Hilton Caribe, Renaissance La Concha, and Marriott Stelaris.
My husband and I are mid-thirties with no kids. We are looking for a hotel with great views, swimmable ocean (we like waves, but don't want to swim with red flags), and decent pools. We aren't drinkers, so don't care about the price of drinks. We love to walk everywhere, and would like to be able to walk to restaurants (not eat at the hotel). We are using the hotel as a base for going hiking in the rainforest, kayaking at illumination bay, etc. We rented a car, so don't care about tours from hotels.
I'm torn because the reviews are all over the place. I'd like a comfortable, clean, updated room with views of the ocean. the Stelaris has balconies, so I think I'd love that, but it is far more expensive. is it really worth the extra 100 bucks a night?
can anyone offer a suggestion? or, am I worrying for nothing because the three hotels are virtually interchangeable and I should just take the cheapest?
