Where to begin! My husband dreamed of an over the water bungalow for our honeymoon, and trip adviser led us here, to punta caracol. We have had such a relaxing and romantic week, full of beauty, adventure, and the most attentive staff imaginable! From clean sheets and towels everyday, to delicious food, to kind and lively personnel, we love all...

I have wanted to go to a "Hut over the water" in paradise my whole life. So for my 50th birthday I searched a top destination that I could do in a 5 day trip from Los Angeles. This place is amazing. The service is top notch. You are greeted by a staff that really cares about you having the...

While this is not the St. Regis on Bora Bora, it is a lovely and unique location to spend a few days. Accessible only by boat, the bungalows, reception, restaurant and common areas are connected by bridges. The bungalows are rustically attractive, more importantly, they are COMFORTABLE. Good quality KING BEDS, thick lounging mattresses on your private deck (with swimming...

Beautiful location and quaint huts over the water. Minimal amenities make it a relaxing and quiet location. The snorkeling around the hut had beautiful coral and baby fish. There is a resident eagle ray and several skates and sting rays. The water is very warm which made it easy to stay in for a long time. They have kayaks that...

Being the most secluded over water bungalow my wife and I have ever stayed at (and the fact that only three rooms were occupied during our stay) the overall feeling was surprisingly intrusive and crowded. Beside the fact that all the guests where placed in adjoining rooms, very poor room standard (especially the bathroom), the lack of wifi in the...

We spent three days of our honeymoon in this place and it just amazing! Food, activities, staff, view and company are amazing. You can rest, read a nice book, do snorkels, see a dolphin and much more: a must if you are in Costa Rica or Panama! The chef offers every day a different menu reach of local food or...

We had a wonderful trip to Punta Caracol. The staff was great, very accommodating, and the food was great. We enjoyed the snorkeling around the hotel and our daily excursions did not disappoint. The hotel could use a little sprucing up and the bar was a bit skimpy on options but we really had a great time. It is so...

This was an experience of a lifetime- to sleep in these rooms right on the water! We went in the rainy season, so we got just that- lots of rain, but it was still a fantastic time! The rooms are open air, so we felt like we were sleeping right on the ocean. We snorkeled, kayaked and relaxed. It was...

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,...
