I spent a couple nights at Hotel La Punta just to get a feel for the city of Puntarenas. I had passed through many times to get tot he ferry to Paquera, but had nver spent much time in town.
This is a very nice hotel and the location is perfect. You can walk to the ferry docks and there are a number of small restaurants overlooking the harbor.
The room was okay, but the metal and glass door was irritating--needed to be lock to stay shut. The shower worked well, but ti was very very small.
Parking is easy and secure and the staff was very pleasant. The WiFi is weak--not much signal by the pool.
I would stay here again--depending on the price.
