Punta leona is a settlement, from freestanding private residential, different apartment areas, holiday houses and hotel rooms in small bungalows,. Depending on where one lives called accommodation leonamar, selvamar or club punta leona. There is even a small chapel and a small supermarket. The area is currently with a larger complex developed. This is the face of the resorts certainly change. The huge Areal is located on the Playa Blanca and the Playa man …  read hotel review

We booked through Neckermann a 'beautiful resort surrounded by a beautiful forest...' Booked. We got a clean bungalow room with a terrace, and the beautiful park plant is available - only on a few square meters limited. Otherwise, it is a trip to the highway, a lot of traffic was in the Pura Vida acclaimed area, surrounded by 'eco-friendly' suvs, every walk, if any - overpopulated have.

We certainly have expected worse after reading some of the reviews here so in the portal. The food in form of a buffet was plentiful and well prepared. It repeated itself hardly. The only drawback: cheese was missing for breakfast. The à la carte dishes in the Playa Blanca and Playa mantas were excellent. The waiters were very attentive and always asked despite all inclusive, if you have a dessert or coffee would like or similar. There were all kinds of drinks: beer, wine, fresh smoothies, cocktails (large selection ),Cola,Sprite, water, juices. What concerns the construction noise, we ... hardly heard. The construction is in the final phase. There are 2 new bars ready and can be used. Whether a new hotel is being built on the plant actually, we don't know. It looked rather, as condominiums, since each room had its own electric meter. The restaurant was so la la. stuffy, hot and we saw only a 10 centimeter cockroach, 1 terantel, ants and scorpions. Unfortunately no gütteltier or similar the beaches are great. Beach chairs were chained (probability. Because of the flood) but is not tragic. On Playa mantas absence but the beach chairs. The rooms are thoroughly cleaned. Towels were always changed completely, if you put them on the floor or not. Here one could pay attention more on the environment. The shuttle service worked well. From the bungalows are it about 5 minutes to the reception selvamar Playa Blanca but you should rather drive. Making phone calls to german cleanliness was not always. Sometimes you by, sometimes not. 15 daily free minutes, which really great is, if one goes through-) on the weekends locals came, we have still not done at breakfast. It was full of, yes. but you probably a bit spoiled from the otherwise empty area. There were 2 weddings on the weekends in the hotel. The beach bar was decorated by blanca. The area had a small church. All in all a very nice hotel with nice staff. Rooms are a bit small, much desh. Only 3.5 stars. Otherwise was no difference to 4 and 4 star superior hotel recognizably. We felt very comfortable and we wished we could have stayed longer. In this sense Pura Vida! read hotel review

Here there was a beautiful schmetteringshaus, an old majabaum with searing aras, 3 pools, doctor, miniature golf course, 2 restaurants, 1 bar or 2 is one of the sites.

    We stayed in the bungalow area Panama used. The room was large enough, bags you could easily sleep. But it had no terrace. There are in the room, two beds, two chairs, a table, a closet, a chest of drawers (3 drawers), a coffee maker, a minibar (with arrival filled with water. No refill. ) and a tv (channel 71 is Deutsche Welle)

  • Gastronomy
    5.0

    The main restaurant is open to all sides and well-lit. Those who wanted could eat outside and in the evening the crickets heard. Unfortunately some guests used the animal for example monkeys anzufüttern. So the animals can go up to the restaurant and 'steal' anything from the table. Which mostly for general amusing contribution. The drinks were brought to the table and the used plates were cleared away immediately. If the ticos (local) on weekend or as it is now (holidays to mid february) there are, you have a short time for a table in the restaurant. But one has vacation!

    The staff at the hotel, no matter, whether in the restaurant, room service or at the bar, are very friendly and attentive. Some are trying to even learn german. The tour guide (mr Roy a.) we would warmly welcomed and run by the hotel. With the trips if he partly present and it was very well done. The laundry service was very fast, thorough and kostennormal.

    The so-called construction at all corners, estimated at two! The first site we have a new hotel and we had a bit of a pain. The construction noise is neither in the bungalows, at the beach, in the restaurant or at the pool to be heard. The 2. construction is already-called 2. bar. The construction noise is there, but like i said soon over and then cheers! We are 21/2 weeks (check out 26 january 2014) in the area and are each 2. day, across the street to the beach Playa Blanca run. We are neither side cracked, because the autoa we are still angehupt have been. On the contrary, we would very friendly greeted. The view on the way to the beach is beautiful. The maintained hotel plant is very extensive, green and animal kingdom.

    The hotel has 3 pools. Of which is an extra for children, even babies can safely splash around. Next door is the playground. The hotel is very child friendly. The 2. pool with enough pool chairs and umbrellas and for childless guests very suitable. The 3. pool is located at the main restaurant. It is smaller and cooler than the other two. There is also the new bar, therefore, there were also still construction noise. The pools are very clean and cleaned regularly. At the beach there were very few couches and unfortunately were also many broken. There needs something to be done. Umbrellas. You need not on the beach, because there are lots of shady trees and palm trees.

We booked through Neckermann a 'beautiful resort surrounded by a beautiful forest.' Booked. We got a clean bungalow room with a terrace, and the beautiful park plant is available - only on a few square meters limited. Otherwise, it is a trip to the highway, a lot of traffic was in the Pura Vida acclaimed area, surrounded by 'eco-friendly' suvs, every walk, if any - overpopulated have. The paths to the restaurants, pools, bars are far and busy. The beach Playa Blanka you should not to foot want. There are in this öködorf no walk to the beach and ... the road is narrow. If you didn't voluntarily to side jumps, my a hupkonzert. If you are not even with a riesenschlitten travels, can a golf cart rental.

    Pool as said: pampersspülanlage! The 2. pool, small and the water quality in the light of the nightly pool, didn't keep me from a bathroom can persuade. The pool chairs worn out and in the sun chained. 3 failing umbrellas we discovered, there would be an urgent need for action. But the showers and toilets spotlessly clean! The beach : Playa manta is not very nice, dark sand, stones, almost stagnant waters (so it smells partly also. To the Playa Blanka you can at low tide over the beach. Otherwise, a long walk through the 'highway'. Or one takes the shuttle bus. It runs every 30 minutes. The beach is nice and you can get a betontisch with betonbänken use. Costs nothing, beach chairs were of course nice.

    It was once...! A holiday resort set in a beautiful setting this hotel is certainly time. Now it is by other hotels, many are straight still - completely crowded. The roads are blocked, the pool area overcrowded, the pool chairs in the sun chained. Sunshades in the catalog from a picture of 90er are. There is no such thing. Many locals with their extended families and coolers for the next few weeks and the hotelpoolanlage and all facilities of the hotels with use. The children's pool right rather a crowded ' pampersspülanlage'. You could for example with the public bus to jaco drive, provided that the bus has held, which in our case not act.

The hotel plant is very beautiful and large, there are many animals (aras, toucans, monkeys, coatis). Also the offered tours were recommendable (birdwatching, restaurant, butterfly house). We stayed at the restaurant even tarantulas seen! %doublelinebreak % The rooms are ok and especially always clean. There is a large construction site (new hotel), in the rooms and on the beach you can luckily nothing with. In the immediate vicinity but it is already loud! %doublelinebreak % The food was okay, you always found something. Too much but you should not expect. %doublelinebreak % There are definitely too few beach chairs. At ... the weekend the locals and that's really busy. The beach chairs at the pool are chained up, which means you can then also not in the shade slides. %doublelinebreak % For the beach (here there is almost no beach chairs) definitely take a large towel. You get one from the hotel, but this is rather small. read hotel review

    The booked and first related bungalowzimmer (supposedly with terrace) was the level of equipment was okay so far. Rooms were very badly soundproofed (quiet sleep not possible, because in the evenings until late in the night noisy. Early in the morning about from 5 hours by tour buses and construction noise woke us up. The terrace is a joke because it is simply from entrance with a stone bench is (in our case even with 'beautiful view' right on angränzend parked cars and construction)

    Number of restaurants/bars: 1 main restaurant (which is also a grill restaurant was declared), 2 snäckbars, 1 pool bar and 1 closed beach bar. The food in the main restaurant was a middle class standard. Breakfast/dinner daily at approximately the same selection. The food was not covered, although the kapuzineräffchen and nasenbähren partly on the tables are (not cleared leftovers to steal) the monkeys are sometimes even to buffet cracked bananas to steal (hygiene were imagined differently). The food looked carelessly dahingecklatscht from. Some male vermin (fly ants and small bugs) on fruit and pastries and the grilled fish found. The fruit was not chilled pastries partially have tasted old. The small selection of warm dishes were teilweie lukewarm or cold. In the main restaurant frühschtücken you had to partly 10 minutes in the queue until a place was free. The restaurant is open but through the bad lighting very uncomfortable, and dark. No table cloths, you could get drinks in plastic cups on our own. When the restaurant was too crowded with plastic tables/chairs extended. Enjoy is something else, since then the campingatmomosphäre by. At the two snack bars (one by the pool, the other by the beach Playa Blanca) the offered snacks ok, you could but not 1 week only the same fast food diet. The drinks and the service at the pool bar were good but the atmosphere was not very comfortable as at 3 tvs different sports loud aired.

    The service staff at the pool bar and the two snackbars as well as cleaning staff were very friendly. The 'main restaurant' the service was usually not so great (a lot of staff however totally uncoordinated) Handling of complaints: the responsible local guide was when we arrived not present, the welcome should then 4 days later. With complaints was the guide under the above emergency number of very difficult or not for days to reach. With problems and complaints we were greeted by him with the explanatory memorandum as possible the nothing could do and only 5 Dollar per guest would deserve. You had the impression that the guide was only around trips to sell. For problems one stays alone there.

    Throughout the 'resort' (comes from nature rather a campground closer) was spread out on every corner and loudly from morning 5a evening about 19 hours and regardless of the number of people present built. The area is busy streets pulled through which both the new großbaustellen as well as the holiday homes of locals and thus ganztächlich a lot of transit of car/truck/buses/motorcycles etc. Prevails. To get from the room to the beach/pool/restaurant or reception to arrive. You had to depending on the location of the room either about 25 or up to 30 minutes for a shuttle bus waiting. So you need to go each way plan well. • nearest place jaco is from the extensive plant only with bus ( fahrlähne are however very unreliable) or a taxi. The hotel had two beaches. The limited number of available beach chairs are in a miserable condition, worn verpekt and chained. The beach bar was closed during our stay. If the weekend the locals arrivals are the available seats at the beaches occupied, there is then skipped picniced and celebrated.
