idyllic hotel

Posted Nov 21, 2017
Pros: everything. It is incredibly good.
Cons: Coffee in the dining area before 6 AM
Location: Not easy to get to as it is relatively remote and the road isn't good. There is a macaw relocation center near by and a beach
wonderful architecture, setting and service. It was a beautifully relaxing experience, a beautiful escape from the world we live in, in a beautiful environment.

Revisit "Fantasy Island" without the drama!

Posted Mar 13, 2017
Pros: Location, staff, amenities, food, activities, proximity to ocean/ water activities, the bar. Fairly priced. Fantastic shuttles everywhere.
Cons: If one chooses to rent a car, be sure to include a GPS.
Location: Punta Islita has a multitude of activities that they provide without cost, including their Beach Club and extensive shuttles.
We chose Hotel Punta Islita, Autograph Collection for our stay in Costa Rica. While we travel quite a bit, we had not been to CR. I was somewhat dubious from the online pictures, but left reluctantly and wanting to return. Our stay found me remembering the early Hawaii and other such special locations. Life at the hotel was easy, quiet, friendly, accommodating, and fondly memorable. We want to go back. Our room was spacious, well-decorated and very clean, and we had flowers arranged throughout the suite every evening. Besides the room, we had a small yard and patio with a very private, tiled hot tub over-looking the scenic resort, hotel beach club, and the ocean. The hotel staff is always wanting to please, and always at your service without being noticeable. Upon arrival, I was brought a refreshing tropical drink to cool me down. It is easy to understand how the entire property is known as "the Autograph Collection".

Real sustainable tourism

Posted Jul 11, 2016 on Hotels
The most interesting and impressive part about Punta Islita is the commitment to economic and social sustainability. There is local art village were community women run a museum and shop. Plus there is community daycare so locals can work at the hotel. Plus local environmental programs have encouraged reforestation and a macaw preservation project. The macaws are chattering and visible all over the property, making it a really unique experience!

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!
