The staff will pamper you with authentic Costa Rican charm, sensible luxury and the incomparable hospitality born of Guanacaste and the Nicoya Peninsula. Enjoy the pools, beach and outstanding facilities, including a magnificent spa, at one of Costa Rica's most romantic and relaxing resorts.

The award winning Hotel Punta Islita is one of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World and a Virtuoso Property. In addition to deluxe rooms, luxurious suites and charming casitas, spectacular villas are also available. Multi bedroom Villas are ideal for families on a Costa Rica vacation that require two or three bedrooms or friends traveling together. These villas are located in a separate part of the property but have full access to all hotel services.
Hotel Punta Islita is also a stand out for its commitment to responsible tourism. The resort has pioneered a responsible tourism program that encourages the preservation of local cultures and rational use of natural resources. Embedded in a secluded tract of tropical dry forest, a globally threatened ecosystem that is home to over 150 species of mammals, 200 bird species, 100 amphibian and reptile species, unique trees, and brilliant tropical flowers, Hotel Punta Islita's regent biologist is outlining the most appropriate conservation strategies to preserve and encourage the propagation of endemic flora and fauna.
Under the hotel's sponsorship, the Punta Islita Contemporary Art Museum is the flagship project of the We Care Responsible Tourism Model and features the works of established Costa Rican and international artists as well as members of the local community. The responsible tourism practices espoused by Hotel Punta Islita have earned the recognition of important Costa Rican and international entities. Their encouragement further motivates Hotel Punta Islita, its associates, and its neighbor communities to expand and enhance their partnerships.
The Hotel Punta Islita offers great food in both restaurants. The hotel is very isolated, with only the town of Islita in near proximity. Guests enjoy most of their meals at the resort. If you have any special requests, please do not hesitate to contact the resort’s staff, they are quite accommodating.
Tours and activities offered in the region include kayaking, snorkeling, hiking, golf, turtle tours, bird watching, surfing, canopy tours, and horseback riding.
