Guest Testimonial

.Melissa is a first-rate Travel Consultant, and the relationship and trust that she has built with us is truly cherished.

- GF, Bedfordshire

Standing in harmony with its neighbouring communities, Hotel Punta Islita is a secluded beachfront getaway redolent with the authentic charm, culture, and bewildering natural biodiversity of Costa Rica and the Guanacaste province. Stylish yet relaxed and packed with included tours and activities, it is perfect for family holidays, romantic getaways, honeymoons, and relaxation escapes.

The property's tiered layout offers excellent ocean or mountain views from all guestrooms, which are set in secluded 'cabin style' buildings. Accommodation choices range from spacious deluxe rooms and suites with a jacuzzi, to casitas with plunge pools and private family villas with a pool and a home from home feel. All are beautifully put together, leaning heavily on cool, tiled floors and neutral wall colours, and enlivened by splashes of colour from freshly cut flowers, soft furnishings and local art. Meanwhile, exposed wood detail lends an authentic, beach cabin flavour.
