Be prepared to be enchanted! The rough road leads to an amazing hotel with even more amazing people. This was a family vacation with our two older teenage children. From the beginning until the end, it was a vacation of a lifetime. We were greeted in the parking lot by a friendly face who turned out to be our concierge - this was a wonderful surprise! After our long journey, he recognized that we were hungry, and so he escorted us to the restaurant for a relaxing lunch and complimentary drink - oh, by the way, he checked us in as we gazed over the beautiful ocean view. The next trip was to our 3 bedroom villa that I can only say was amazing. The kids wondered if we had become rock stars since we left the States... yes, it was that amazing. The 1st night we thought we heard a gorilla... turned out to be a howler monkey - a veryLOUD howler monkey. By the end of our 1st day, our teenage son declared that he would have to stop saying everything was amazing because, well, everything was amazing! Our trip was filled with encounters with a truly caring and courteous hotel staff, first class food and accommodations, views to die for, wildlife sights and sounds from National Geographic, and did I mention the amazing people? We would return to Punta Islita in a heartbeat, and we actually discussed the need to start playing the lottery with the hope of returning to beautiful Costa Rica sooner vs. later. It is truly PURA VIDA!
I looked at the photos and read the reviews before booking this hotel. I was very pleased with the photos and I was more than pleased when we arrived at the resort. It was absolutely amazing and I didn't imagine how enormous the resort was. The trees and plants were beautiful the layout of the place was fantastic. The shuttle service is a much needed vehicle to get around the resort if you are not up for a long walk to the main area. The shuttles would come quickly when you needed them. The drivers were very courteous and helpful. The check-in process was very quick and pleasant. Our room was a garden view king bungalow near the Spa, the adult pool, and one of the restaurants The room was very updated and the bedding and pillows were extremely comfortable. The refrigerator was stocked with beverages and bottled water was provided everyday.I loved the private beach and the lounge area with chairs and a table under huts. We sat along the beach for hours and waiters were bringing beverages upon request. The weather was not too hot however, it did rain in the late afternoon on some days. The 4 resort restaurants had great food that you order from the menu. The portions are small, but you could order more food if needed. I think it is a great idea, because people tend to waste food in larger portions. The only buffet was for breakfast and it was fantastic. This was a great time of the year to visit because it was not crowded and my husband and I had a wonderful time.
Very comfy rooms, great onsite restaurants and bars. Relaxed atmosphere with excellent drinks. Easy access to water activities and to small towns. Excellent offsite restaurants only minutes away. Would definitely stay there again.

This stop on my 2 week trip in Costa Rica was the highlight! From the staff being extremely helpful to the villas being above any expectations I could of had! The gardeners and room service crew looked happy, the 2 cooks Mario and Maria made amazing food and the concierge were always around making sure we were happy no matter what! I am going back to Costa Rica and I am definitely coming back to Latitude 10!!!
