It was difficult to even find the resort as there were few signs. The food was mediocre. There was little "Pura Vida" among the restaurant or bar staff. There were bugs in my room. This was not a good value. I would look for another hotel next time.

We had a wonderful stay at Double Tree Resort at Puntarenas. The Hotel by the beach has amazing facilities. We were 6 families that took the all-inclusive resort package and had the best time in Costa Rica. The hotel had recommended Arenas Travels for our group tours and they did a remarkable job figuring out our tours for the day...

Be very careful with booking at this hotel. I booked on 9/26/16 and cancelled on 9/27/16 (booked at another Hilton Resort in Jamaica, which was FABULOUS) but my credit card was still charged for a one night stay. I received an email from Jessica Ramirez, Guest Services Manager, four days before arrival welcoming me in advance and I immediately emailed...

Stayed 3 nights with family of 4. Kids loved the many pools and activities and the playplace. Food and drinks were all great and the atmosphere was pleasant, fun and relaxing or energizing depending on what we chose to do. Evening entertainment was a bit late for our kids but nice. The site was very easy to find and get...

I stayed here for four nights with a friend, thinking we would drink all day and party at night. This resort is definitely not for that as it was pretty quiet and full of families. My first night started with a mistake upon check in. I had reserved a room with two double beds but after checking in and going...

I especially liked the friendly, welcoming attitude of the staff. Jessica is amazing. Went above and beyond her call of duty. Food options were alright and they even had a special menu for vegetarian options. Very good place, will stay again.

We are diamond members and used points for our stay. We really wanted to love this resort but it failed to deliver the Hilton experience that we enjoy. This resort is geared toward Tico families looking for a "stay-and-play" vacation. There are very few foreign tourists. It can be loud and lively, especially in Dec. when Tico kids go on...

Disappointing experience due to major defect in shower that caused it to whistle all night, preventing us from sleeping well. The hotel did nothing to compensate for this. Additionally, there were kids everywhere, which is awesome for families, but not that great for a couple celebrating our anniversary. The adult-only pool is very boring - no bar or music. Food...
