Secluded resort with incredible views

Posted Dec 18, 2015
This small luxury resort allows guests to get close to nature and experience real Tico hospitality. Complimentary activities like kayaking, horseback riding and zip lining are a nice feature. Because of its remote location, dining options are limited but the restaurant and beach bar serve excellent food. Great experience!

Excellent service

We got a nice deal for out rooms. The facilites are not the newest or most flashy, but the service is unparalleled. The rooms have great views and private outdoor Jacuzzis and hammocks with an awesome view. Recommended

Great place, hard to get to...

Posted Feb 24, 2015 on Hotels
Hotel is great. Good prices and wonderful staff. Everything is onsite. Zip lining is very cool - you hike a little ways up and then zip line right back to the hotel. Horseback riding is a real trail, long, up and down a mountain. Everyone is very patient and tries to teach you to speak Spanish. Excellent food Only downside, is you are completely stuck there. There is nothing outside the hotel and you are a ways away from the next town over. You are relegated to doing only what the hotel has to offer. Hard to get to also. You either fly into a small local airstrip by taking a connection from San Jose, in which case you won't have a car and you're stranded there with no way of doing anything outside the resort. OR...you fly into Liberia, rent a car - the drive is long, I mean 3 hours long and you have to drive on dirt roads, no highways, and the drive is too dangerous to do at nighttime. Would recommend but just keep in mind the trip there takes up additional time driving.

Family vacation with teenagers

Great place in a beautiful setting. Spectacular view and lots of wildlife. Food and staff wonderful. Could not get hot water while showering during peak times but a very small inconvenience when compared to all of the positive experiences. Don't recommend rental cars , as the driving is torturous.

Thank you so much for your visit and for taking the time to give us your feedback. We are delighted that your experience was so positive and diverse. Our sincere thanks for alerting us to the problem with the water pressure and for being so gracious. Alternatives for reaching Hotel Punta Islita and enjoying its wonderfully secluded setting include private drivers or for the ultimate in convenience, taking a local 35 minute flight to the nearby Islita Airstrip. Please return very soon to Costa Rica, it truly is a magical destination!

Outstanding slice of heaven

Posted Dec 3, 2014 on Hotels
Amazing experience - stayed for one night as a treat during our 2 week cycling tour. Best decision we made. By far the highlight were the staff, welcoming, interesting, knowledgable & couldn't do more to make the stay. Marvin in particular was outstanding. The view and setting is spectacular with the infinity pool as the cherry on top. Rooms are comfortable, like sleeping on clouds, and the food... Yum! Try the tuna down at the beach club.. Just trust me! We didn't have dinner at the hotel as it was thanksgiving.. Instead we went to the local place in the village which was also great. I dream of coming back...
