Beach, breakfast and wildlife
The most wonderful part of this hotel is the access to Playa Blanca - a truly lovely beach. Waves and calm waters. Perfect temperature. My second most favorite thing was the breakfast buffet. So good. So many choices and made to order omelettes. Rooms are standard. Birds and wildlife also made it fun.

Good depending where you stay.
I stayed at Punta Leona many years ago and loved it. We were in the Selvamar rooms which are surrounded by vegetation and walking distance to all amenities. This time the Selvamar rooms were sold out and we stayed in the Arrecifes building. The experience was completely different. The unit is suuuuper outdated which isn't a big deal, but for example the fridge is so old that it's yellow, the door is chipped, etc. There were 3 cushioned chairs in the living room which made the room super uncomfortable to hang out in for watching TV (the pictures showed a couch). The linens and mattresses were also super outdated, and the internet did not work the whole weekend. I'm assuming that these apartments are time shares that Punta Leona administers and not actually the hotel. The location is also in a residential street (not the actual hotel grounds), with many homes for sale, construction, etc. It was a really weird experience compared to the first time. I would say if you visit, make sure you stay in the Selvamar rooms, and to Punta Leona, maybe standards should be set for these buildings, to match the standards of the actual hotel. The beaches were awesome both times, and the food really good in Carabelas restaurant.
