We spent 5 nights and enjoyed every minute. The staff are very friendly (although some of them speak limited English) and very helpful. The food was incredible each and every day. And they gave so much that we actually asked them to give us only 3 portions split between our family of 4. (Even though it was included, we hated...

I will admit, my new wife and I were a little concerned with a few of the reviews that Caracol had received. We chose to ignore them and go since it is a lot more affordable than other places. We could not be more thrilled that we came to Caracol and all the negative reviews are ridiculous. The food is...

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...

“All of the 9 cabanas are on stilts in the water each with their own deck with stairs directly into the water. They all have the same beautiful views of the sunset and the mountains across from Punta Caracol.There is one cabana that is bigger and sleeps more people than the others.”
