Hello Punta Islita!!
Joe and I want to thank you for working so hard during our stay at your hotel late November 2013. Every staff member played such an important role in our events while we were there and they all did an amazing job. Everyone went out of their way to make sure all our guests were happy, satisfied and having the best vacation they could have in Costa Rica!! Everything was flawless and honestly we have no complaints, other than the fact that we aren’t there anymore. We are so happy we made the decision to return to your hotel to celebrate our nuptials. Your staff’s hospitality and Punta Islita itself left such an impression on Joe and me in November 2012 that we couldn’t think of a better place to tie the knot. Thank you again for being so gracious and kind.
From the day Paola got in touch with myself, Joe and my mother she was such a pleasure to work with. I am pretty sure we emailed everyday after that and whether it was one email a day or 50 she was there to help, answer questions, give recommendations, etc. She is extremely knowledgeable, accurate, precise, and very professional. We all had a hard time keeping up with the emails but she really kept it together and made us feel at ease. I would recommend working with Paola for all events taking place at Punta Islita in the future. Especially larger groups like ours…our wedding included 88 people. We spent months and months planning together and she truly did her best make our wedding events such memorable occasions. She was at Colibri Thursday night helping set up our welcome dinner and cocktails. She was also there during the day both Friday and Saturday to make sure everything ran smoothly. She was eager to ask us questions and get our thoughts and ideas about where things should go or how the setup should be. Her precision to detail is one of a kind and we were blessed to work with her. And we want to thank her for leaving her family in San Jose for three days to be with us. I know that must have been hard but thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
I would like to give a special thanks to the following staff (please excuse me if I am forgetting anyone.)
Marvin – I’m not sure how he does what he does but his work ethic is first-class! Our group was a lot to handle and with any hiccups that occurred he managed to stay calm and work with us to get through them. All of our guests went to him first with any questions so you can only imagine how strained 88 people can make you. But he did it with grace and always had a smile on his face. Thank you for staying up until the wee hours in the morning to make sure our guests were safe and sound. All appreciates your dedication!
Carlis and his staff
Restaurant staff – thank you for making our meals so fantastic!! Our guests are still talking about the paella we had at our rehearsal dinner and of course the rice and cilantro at breakfast!!
