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.

From the 2 hour drive from the airport you take in the scenic views, but nothing prepares you for the absolutely beautiful resort! From the greeting we received to the warm travel wishes when we departed. The staff was awesome, the drinks and food, activities and the rooms gave you gorgeous views. This is not a place where things are rushed, be prepared to walk a lot, stairs take you where you need to go. This resort to me is for those don’t like big crowds, it’s almost like your personal oasis. The staff is very accommodating and you will see the same people throughout your stay. As an employee of The Marriott family, they exemplified what we are about. I will definitely be back.

We flew into Liberia and drove an additional two hours to arrive in paradise. We chose to forgo a car rental and booked transportation directly through the hotel. The sights, sounds, animals, and activities are magical. This family friendly resort is luxurious, the cuisine is scrumptious (and fresh), and the staff is like family. It was so hard to leave, truly! (If possible, splurge for a villa) Recommended activities: canopying (aka zip lining), horseback riding, mixology (ask for Antonio), and the morning monkey hike. I would do each one again, because I know the experience would be different each time. Pura Vida!

The resort located on the hills within natural reserve on the Pacific Ocean shore . We stayed with 2 teenage on a private villa overlooking the sea , everything was perfect from the big rooms and baths , view and the personal service. Included in the stay several attractions like zip lining , tours of the area and horse riding . Highly recommended

We spent an afternoon at the resort. The food was delicious and the service was great. It is a picturesque locale- usually a calm, secluded beach. The hotel amenities were nice. One of the people with us has stayed at the hotel and only had positive things to say.

We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay at the hotel. Beautiful views great staff and wonderful experience. Upstairs pool and view and view from room was unmatched for the value. Only negative is location but worth the drive. Some fellow travelers felt that eating choices are limited in town but we felt that the other local restaurants were very good. So go a few days enjoy the view and relax
