    Punta Leona ..a treat

    This hotel is situated in a rain forest. Very large property with 2 private beaches. Reception and rooms are about 4 KMs from main road. Hotel is kept very clean and maintained. Real treat is White Faced monkeys at one of the restaurants. It was an eye treat to see them play around and grab food from empty tables.

    Jungle Beach Paradise

    Probably the best white sand beach on the west coast of Costa Rica. This resort was spread out inside and actual nature reserve so we saw tons of animals even while eating the included buffet breakfast. We wanted to experience the true 'in the jungle' and we got it but laced with all the amenities we could need including wifi, golf carts, tons for kids to do and lots of private places for my wife an I to enjoy as well. The 400 year old 'ladder to heaven' tree was awesome!

    Bring your own car or rent a bike or golf cart for your own personal use the resort is huge and requires driving around to get to everything. It's worth it though. There are free golf art services going everywhere every 15-30 mins I believe.

    Not an "all inclusive stay"

    Do not fall for their all-inclusive resort package. They allow people to come and use their pool facilities who are not staying at the resort or housing complex. They take up the entire pool facilities and have ice chests, and small BBQ's. This made it very uncomfortable to have entire families (grandma, grandpa, mom, dad, kids cousins - this is not over exaggeration) use the areas that you paid to use. It was not one family but many. Pools would be filled with inflatable toys, floating lounge mats and such. As for the all-inclusive, they seem to have several packages. Not all their staff is up to date on what each wrist band is all about. We had to constantly argue that it was included and did not have to pay for the restaurant or bar. No beach amenities are included. If you wanted to use a boogie board, snorkel gear, whatever you have to pay in cash. Our kids would constantly be told they couldn't use something or couldn't order a drink or snow cone, or use the ping-pong or fus ball table (but no problem if you were a visiting family). I would have to go up their with them and explain to the staff that we are a paying guest, and have an all inclusive package. Only then could they even get a drink. The rooms are basic rooms. Much that of a Motel 6, and the feel. No real appeal, but that didn't concern us because we only used it to bathe and sleep. It was very clean. We also felt overall very safe at the property. I would have given it an overall 3 star if not for the issues that we did have. A better place to stay and better bang for your buck would be Jaco, which is about 15km down the road.
