My husband and I came here for our anniversary and it couldn't have been more perfect! The staff even surprised us with an anniversary cake which went above and beyond. This is the perfect place to just get away from everything! We loved that there wasn't a TV or phone in our bungalow! We cannot say enough about how awesome...

My family just spent 4 days and 3 nights at this incredible location. The staff were so helpful and caring. The food was absolutely fabulous. Gourmet dinners every night. One note to remember - there is no air conditioning. You have to make sure all the windows are open. The snorkeling around the lodges were absolutely beautiful with star fish,...

This place rocked. We stayed for 5 nights. The meals were great. It was hot and the rooms didn't cool off very well. If i were to go back, i would probably only stay 2-3 nights because all the nothing to do does get a little boring. It is definitely relaxing and beautiful

Hello, Thank you for your stay with us and for sharing your thoughts. We are so glad you really did relax and "charge batteries".

Punta Caracol is located in a beautiful setting. Our family of 4 was upgraded to a Luna Suite. We loved watching all of the sea life from our deck. One day, we even saw dolphins! The snorkelling was fantastic. We brought our own snorkel gear, but our bungalow also had some for our use. We also used the kayaks. The...

Its a diamond in the rough. Great location and setting. Warm friendly staff. Dinners absolutely awful. Lunch passable. Canned peaches for dessert, Canned tuna fish at lunch-in Central America and at these prices. A few things, so simple to fix, management has heard it before. Why don't they improve??
