I wish I could say better things about the resort but it is nothing like I expected. In the pictures it looks like a paradise but it is not that at all. Everything is so far from each other and if you do not have a car it will take forever to walk from one part of the place to another. There is nothing around the hotel and I had to drive at least 20 minutes to get to anything. It is a very outdated and I felt like I went back into the 70’s. The staff not respectful and if you speak English it is very hard to understand what they are saying because most only speak Spanish. They put me in the wrong room that I paid for and they could not move me. The worst part is how rock hard the beds are and in one of our beds there were so many ants. It may have just been our room but it is by far the worst bed I have ever slept on. If you are looking for a cheap resort to save money then this may be the place for you, but it is not a beautiful five star hotel. I would definitely recommend staying more in Jaco than Punta Leona.
