Punta Gabriela is out of this world. If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would. The property is situated up on a hill surrounded by the rainforest, but with incredible views of the ocean and nearby beaches... and it's still only a short drive down to the beach. There's two awesome pools (one of them being an...

My favorite part of Punta Gabriela was the man that worked there named Edwin and his family. I felt so comfortable and safe. He helped us with all of our questions and made us...

My friends and I had an amazing time at Punta Gabriela. The views from the hotel are amazing and the place itself is pristine. Edwin, the caretaker, was the best part of our trip. All of the excursions he booked for us were above and beyond expectations. Not to mention he is an amazing cook! We would come back again...

Went on a trip with four couples to Punta Gabriela. Edwin - the caretaker, chef, chauffeur - meets you at the airport, and does everything with a smile. Really a great guy! Pro-tip: Ask him to make french fries.

Beautiful views, beautiful home. Very steep, scary hill for the drive. Edwin and his team are amazing hosts and worked hard each day. Wonderful home and beautiful country. The only down-side was the crazy steep hill.

Hands down best place to stay . The staff is amazing and i cannot say enough about them they are always attentive and ready at a moments notice.
