Very expensive
Restaurants prices are too expensive. It takes 4 km. To get out and and find reasonables prices restaurants. If you plan to go there, it has to be everything included

AC and location
Not on the beach like I had thought, should have read closer details of the hotel. However, the 1/2 mile drive to Playa Blanca is worth it. Beautiful beach. Had troubles with the 2 ACs (2 bedroom accommodations) but they repaired. However, no AC in Main living space or bathroom area which remained very warm.

Punta Leona
Helpful and friendly staf, good breakfast, only 1 exit open to the beach should be at least 2, the AC stop working and the fridge wasn't clean.

Very good 8,0
Good hotel for the weekend on amazing Playa Blanca
The hotel itself is huge, nice big clean rooms, great beach access. The two downsides are the food is not amazing (but this is Costa Rica) and they were very strict in not allowing my friends that I was with to the beach, but I guess they have to stick to their rules. For 1 night it was ok, wouldn’t stay there longer as there’s not much to do aside from beaching and better food options are in Jaco.

Poor 2,0
Don't. Just don't.
We decided to stop and stay in Punta Leona in order to break up the drive from Manuel Antonio to Arenal. What a waste of time and money! The hotel is in serious need of repair and refurbishment. The pools were gross and littered with debris, not to mention shady people. You have to wear ridiculous green bracelets your entire stay (thankfully only one day for us). The desk clerk said the guard would kick us out if he saw we weren't wearing one. You also have to pass through numerous security checkpoints like some kind of criminal. There is even a chain blocking the restaurant access. The dinner looked and tasted like it came from Ponderosa or Golden Corral. We could take our pick of stiff mashed potatoes, chicken wings, rubbery "meat" from the chef, or hot dogs! One reason we picked this resort was because of a review I read about Playa Blanca, "the best beach in Costa Rica". Ha!! If you consider slippery black rocks, crushed-shell sand, and cold dark water appealing, it might be nice. I suppose the reviewer had not visited the aqua blue water among the white sand beach in Manuel Antonio. This truly was THE WORST part of our entire trip.
