This was a well run facility for families and friends--all inclusive without the feeling of being barricaded into a compound. We found it a wonderful place to rest our heads while exploring Costa Rica. Though the travel people seemed to want you to do a tour, one was able to go explore if you knew what you wanted. However, one...

We were on third floor with two balconies overlooking beach. Beautiful grounds. Brick paths. Lots of swimming pools. Food and drinks were good. Other than beach and swimming not much to do. Too far to walk to any town. Don't think i would stay more than two nights. Staff was friendly. Lots of children.

Me and my family stayed at the hotel for a few nights and had an overall really good experience! Unfortunately the room we got was in in original building which is the oldest and most outdated but still it was clean and had working AC and comfortable beds and pillows. The TV didn't work so well but we didn't really...

The cleaning staff were great here, got towel animals each day on my bed. Food was excellent especially the steak and seafood at the al a carte restaurants. Boogie boards in the ocean was fun and good variety of drinks at the bars.

The most important point to make is---manage your expectations. READ THE REVIEWS---there's a bit of truth in most of them, but take them with a grain of salt. I didn't have high expectations (I usually don't prefer Hiltons), and particularly after i read some of the reviews i was a bit apprehensive. Perhaps because of that, I was very pleasantly...

Great food and great staff, could not ask for anything better. New Years Eve Dinner excellent. Boutique restaurants great Only negatives, Beach had an extreme amount of small and large driftwood. Charge extra for internet service, with teens and young adults that is in issue.

We never had hot water in the room, I called to the front desk and they said is not a problem for us, you make a choice for this room and is your responsibility , we spend a lot of time for the towels for the swimming pool, about two and a half hours

My family and I were pretty disappointed by the quality of this Doubletree, especially considering we paid $300+ a night for rooms. One night there was maintenance on the AC & the next night it started leaking like crazy and had to be fixed again. The overall hotel is outdated and in need of a fixer upper. Food was lackluster,...

The clientele is mostly tico families from San Jose, so it doesn't feel so much like an international hotel but a local resort. Huge multiple pools but they can all get crowded as no one really gets in the ocean here. The all-inclusive is fine for a mid-range resort typical of this region of the world. We did try the...

As avid travellers (Hilton Diamond), we were very pleased with the great service we received at the Doubletree Resort. We wanted a pleasant, relaxing vacation (and some fun of course!) and the resort and staff helped to make that happen. Upon arrival, we were ushered into Jessica's (hospitality manager?), who made us feel very welcome and appreciated. She is super!...
