While it was very hot in the beach, this restaurant offered tables upstairs overlooking the water. There was a very nice breeze, which made it a perfect spot for a drink or a bite to eat. The service was very SLOW, but the food was good. We even ordered off the menu items, and they were able to take care...

Stayed here on fri night.....location of the hotel looks good on the map however puts you up right on the street. We had the luck of getting the room overlooking the ocean and the street...there is no sound proofing at all....street noise, traffic and near by bars (READ BLARING MUSIC till 2 AM)...If you are looking to catch a peaceful...

Older hotel but is very clean, nice pool and deck area, restaurant our stay included breakfast, right across from the beach. Staff were very helpful. The beach is very nice and a wonderful walking area. There are a lot of restaurants and bars, seems to be an area for locals to come for vacation from the cities inland. Good value...

We have visited several hotels in Puntarenas and the Hotel Tioga is a good choice for budget travelers specially when travel with the family. The hotel facilities are old but well maintained (no complains), the pool is good and kids love to stay there after crossing the street from the beach. The rooms are OK with TV, they offer free...

Hotel Tioga is located at the boulevard at the main front beach of Puntarenas, very close to night life bars, and lots of restaurants. A very nice point for the Puntarenas' Carnavals, even to see it from the balconies. Has rooms for more than 4 people, so it could become a cheaper option for big groups. The place do look...

Excellent clean family oriented hotel with free internet service, nice swimming pool and free secure parking. Located in front of the beach of Puntarenas at the heart of the city. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The hotel has a very clean restaurant with delicious international and Costarican food. The sunsets in Puntarenas are spectacular. Just walk to the...

Got stuck in this grimy port town by accident and Fodors recommended this grande old dame of a hotel. Grand it is not. It's very 50s and pink. The guy at the desk was a hoot - he was like Manuel in Fawlty Towers, answering a million phones and talking to numerous guests all at the same time. He wanted...

If you have the chance to stay in Puntarenas, stay away from this place. Creepy rooms, walls have holes and looks like you are in 1930. AC is really old sounds like a turbine No hot water. You can hear your neighbor showering. The pool waterpump is always making noises as well as the ice machine

Not fancy, but clean and reasonably priced. The decore is pretty old - probably built in the late 1950s or early 1960s. (The flowered bedspreads match the drapes, and I think I had the same set in 1967.) This is not a luxury hotel, but the staff is friendly, and the rooms are clean. There is good water pressure for...
