Hotel Punta Islita, Autograph Collection in Punta Islita, Costa Rica

Nestled within the pristine folds of Costa Rica, Hotel Punta Islita is the quintessential beachfront hideaway surrounded by layers of natural beauty. Both the editors and readers of Condé Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure have lauded Hotel Punta Islita as among the world's best for its celebrated beauty, service and location. Scattered among its tiered terrain you will find a breadth of rooms, suites and casitas rich in architectural design, coveted seclusion and mesmerizing ocean vistas. Sway gently in an oversize hammock beneath your palapa-style terrace, or enjoy a quick dip in the private pool just beyond the door of your delightful bungalow. Enlist the services of a resort nanny and slip away to one of the on-site restaurants where tropical flavors merge with Costa Rican specialties.

Hotel Punta Islita lends itself to lazy and carefree days. Drape yourself atop a lounge chair next to the infinity-edge pool with a good book, challenging crossword puzzle or eye pillow to block out the sun. Saddled near the sea you will find the beach club, a social destination with a large swimming pool, beach access, a casual eatery and a swim-up bar where you can sip on savory salt-rimmed margaritas. The resort also includes a nine-hole golf course, tennis courts and a fitness facility. Do not forget to make a pilgrimage to the spa, where natural ingredients are used to knead tired limbs. Seasonal and year-round activities abound, from kayaking and snorkeling to romantic rides on horseback. A trip to one of the many enchanting villages should be at the very top of your list.

TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 4 weeks ago

We traveled around Costa Rica on our honeymoon and stayed at 3 different hotels. Punta Islita was our favorite. At the time that we were there, there were probably a total of 30 other people at the hotel. We saw the same guests every day and we really got to know people. Our dining room servers knew our names quickly and were so friendly. We had a casita with a very private patio, with hammock and plunge pool and even an ocean view. The room was a very good size and was very comfortable. We took advantage of the fun activities onsite also-zip-line, monkey hike, cocktail mixing class. The grounds are beautiful and there is a lot of wildlife everywhere-howler monkeys, macaws, even a koaty (which we had never heard of!) Special recognition to our great wait staff, Margarita, Antonio and Joe who greeted us so warmly every day. Every meal we had was delicious. Reception staff Errol and Christina were extremely helpful and always greeted us with big smiles. Marvin checked on us from time to time and Jairo was an awesome tour leader!

We traveled around Costa Rica staying at different houses and hotels, and were not expecting this to be the highlight of our trip. The hotel is beautiful, views are breathtaking, casitas are clean and comfortable, the staff is truly delightful, the pools are nice (I didn't get to enjoy the adult pool but it looks lovely!), the food is yummy, the spa was amazing, the macaws and monkeys everywhere were a treat...and if that wasn't enough for a great hotel experience, the range of activities offered were outstanding. Punta Islita created memories that will last a lifetime for my family. We will be back again for sure!

We enjoyed amazing views of surrounding jungle, scarlet macaws, monkeys, ocean, especially from hotel room and infinity pool. Solid activities included horseback riding, surfing, bird watching. Management was very customer-focused. Good mixture of US and international guests. Definitely worth a return visit.

The hotel is high on a hill overlooking a beautiful Pacific beach, perhaps 3/4 mile long and nearly empty - a few dozen people max any of the 5 Feb. days we were there. Beach is a 10 minute walk - all downhill- serviced by a hotel on-demand shuttle (good for the 'up' return! Rooms are decorated in local style, lots of color, nice decks, good bed, rather small. There are several types and I would recommend the ones higher up for the views and proximity to the hotel lobby, restaurant, bar and pool. Some rooms have plunge pools - our didn't and didn't miss it. Sitting on the deck looking into the surrounding hills and the Pacific was plenty. The main hotel area is above or alongside the rooms, with a beautiful adults only pool and swim up bar adjacent to restaurant and sunning areas. I can't speak too much about the beach area. It is long and wide and mostly empty, with a large tree shaded are before the beach. There is a pool and restaurant, pool is open to all ages. There are plenty of tables for eating and a dozen or so covered lounges (a fee). We sat on the beach one afternoon and watched a gorgeous red macaw devour nuts in a tree beside ue - 3 hours! Hotel arranged for dinner on the beach one night. Diversions - Macaw conservation area a 5 minute drive away, Howler monkeys in the trees on-premise, zip-lining on the property, horse back riding on the beach Negatives are few. There is a tiny town with one restaurant we didn't try (per others comments) and after a few nights the restaurant got boring. No ones fault, you are FAR from anywhere. Not sure the distance but once off the highway it seemed about a 45minute scenic, often gravel and dirt road, drive to the hotel. This is NOT a new hotel, just rebranded as an Autograph. Rooms well maintained but aging. Want to get away and still be very comfortable this is the place

We stayed during the rainy season, August 24th -28th, and the rain really wasn't a problem. There were days when it didn't rain at all, and when it did rain, it didn't rain very long. We celebrated my wife’s birthday while here. At dinner, they surprised us with a delicious cake. That made my wife’s day. We had great accommodations with an amazing view. The entire staff was very friendly. I would like to especially thank Marvin, Margarita, Randy, Edgar, Luis, Sergio, and Antonio for their extraordinary service. Thank you for the best vacation ever!!
