This was a great resort for the rate! We had a nice room that overlooked the pool and ocean. There are multiple pools and two swim up bars. Drinks were good and the food was great! They did a nice job of mixing up the food served at the buffet, and the snack bar had a lot to offer and...

The hotel and staff are great. food is pretty good. plenty of variety, and tasty. acording to other reviews we should have bolted from building one immediately, but we actually really like it. its clean, quiet, large room, big patio, right near the ocean. the other buildings are newer, but seem to cram suites in, so less room,. and much...

We spent two weeks here, all inclusive with just two a la carte restaurants, but it was very good value for money. Take the excursions, go to Tortuga, use the spa - I swear the massage got knots out that had been there for months where RMTs in Canada were not getting to them! Very VERY hot in March in...

Beautiful grounds in a rough part of Costa Rica. 80% locals vacationing so not really American friendly if you are looking for decent service. Locals not very friendly to international travelers either.

This is a comfortable place to spend a few days as we travel around Costa Rica. This a poolside place....beach is not inviting for swimming. The sunsets were great. The food was just average and the staff service was generally excellent with some exceptions. Some staff didn't seem to enjoy the job and this was reflected in their attentiveness. More...

We stayed here for 3 nights during the week and had a great time. I love all-inclusives, and this fit the bill perfectly. The food was better than expected (don't think cruise food- this is much better). We never had to wait in lines for drinks from the bar or for meals. We didn't really participate in the entertainment, as...

I was shocked by the room we stayed in... It was dated and didn't appear to be kept up well. I wanted to leave as soon as I walked in but we arrived late at night and decided to try and upgrade our room in the morning... We didn't try but spoke with people who did and it is really...

Very pleased with our stay at the Doubletree Central Pacific. The property was fantastic, service outstanding, food very acceptable and overall the resort was very accommodating.
