    One of the best foods at an all inclusive

    Wow i am so amazed at this hotel . As soon as you walk in planet Hollywood they make you feel like a celebrity . There is a red carpet and welcome drinks . They take photos of you . This is a newer resort so it’s up to date unlike the other hotels Ive visited in Costa Rica . I am a frequent international traveler and have been to many all inclusive resorts and i must say this is my favorite so far . The food was sooo good . Very seasoned fresh . And they had a variety. I don’t know if it was because of Covid that the food was so good, but i hope after when it gets busy the food is just as good . The lobby has the best drinks .Vermond makes the best drinks . Fresh fruit , herbs , spices , etc . I must say i have never had drinks this good . Maria Jose was very nice and helpful . Also our drive Jeff was soo cool and very informative . You can’t go Wrong with this hotel. My only complaint is i wish they had an adults only section . There was a silent party that was very chill, but if it wasn’t Covid and adults only to would have been better

  • 2,0.Poor

    Overall very mixed feelings about our stay. Very nice location and facilities. The rooms are incredible and very well decorated. Spa is very nice as well. Service is awfull. I paid more than $700 per night and dod not ger back what I expected. From check in (which took almost 2 hours), to staff not filling up the mini bar with sodas, to no bottles of water in room (despite multiple calls), to lack of wines from the list, issues at restaurants, to rude attitude by some of the hotel personell by the pool. On the other hand, we did find some service staff to be very attentive and well trained, including our Expedia host, who did everything on her power to enhace our experience.

    Stays at Plant Hollywood!

    Stayed for New Year at Planet Hollywood! The resort is beautiful! Food is ok ! I didn’t like the restaurants! It takes too long to serve the food! I preferred the buffet! The beach is not that great ! Sand is black! They need to work on their customer service! Everything takes too long!

    The resort is built on the side of hill so it seems like every room might have a decent view of the bay. We loved our view of the sunrise and you could catch a breathtaking sunset on the black sand beach. Staff were attentive and wore masks 24-7. The decreased occupancy made it more comfortable for us however the decreased staff was an issue now and then... masks did not help with the language barrier. But I can't say enough about the beauty of Costa Rica. The resort, the staff, the food, and the entertainment all added to the experience - Pura Vida!!

    We had a wonderful time at this resort. It was lovely, offered a nice variety of restaurant options, and activities at the beach. There are locals that pester you to buy items down by the water daily! The resort staff and tour guides of Costa Rica are so friendly and happy to guy named Johnathan even went in to town on his day off to purchase something we loved that they didn’t have on site! our biggest frustration was getting the mini bar restocked and a few other items everyday... when you pay this amount of $ nightly and it’s all inclusive one shouldn’t have had to call and text the concierge repeatedly!

    Great family experience-100 % recommended

    Reading ugly comments from locals in facebook, I was doubtfull. Anyhow was the only vacation plan for the year so we decided to go...It was great from start till the end. We had superb expedia support from Benny 24/7, she was always available to provide us information and help us with the restaurant bookings (food is great). We stay in the small pool avoiding crowds and the bartenders and waitress were always in top of us: food, drinks, towels. Beach wáter is calm and sun all the way.

    Our Star Class host Henry was fantastic. He made it a truly amazing trip. Going the extra mile to make sure we were comfortable and happy at every turn. Property is spotless and food was consistently great. Would highly recommend and stay again in the future.

    I really enjoyed the entertainment and breakfast buffet. The pool needed a little more attention and the food could use more flavor (but presentation was beautiful). The staff were all kind and helpful!

    Great facility with updated amenities. The staff were not so friendly, resturant reservation was not seemless and they always tried to give us tables outside in 90+ degree weather even after requesting to sit inside. It was also hard to get a server to bring you drink by the pool. Food was above average compared to most other resorts.
