“The Quintessential Costa Rican Getaway”
Reviewed 12 June 2011 for a stay in September 2010

This place truly is luxury in the jungle. The location was just about a 2 hour drive or a quick flight from San Jose. We drove one way and flew back the other way and this only added to the adventure. Good site seeing along the way and you really feel like you are getting away from it all. The entire property sits on a cliff with ocean views that are extraordinary. We stayed in one of the villas. It was gorgeous, clean, private, and extremely comfortable. The owners were very friendly and knowledgeable about Costa Rica. They handled all of our excursions and everything we did was top notch. We enjoyed a canopy trip, whale watching, fishing,horseback riding, surfing and more all within close proximity. They even prepared the most delicious impromptu dinner for us from our fishing trip bounty. This was my first trip to Costa Rica and staying here definitely enhanced the entire experience.

“A vacation you'll never forget!”
Reviewed 11 June 2011 for a stay in September 2010

From the moment of my arrival I felt completely comfortable. The owners, Karen and Jesse couldn't do enough for me. There was just the right combination of adventure and relaxation. The view from everywhere on the property is just astounding, not to mention breath taking. It's the only place I know of where the Pacific Ocean meets the jungle. My villa was so beautifully decorated. Not one thing was overlooked in the design. The treehouse/zip line is one of kind. All of my excursions were arranged for me (everything from horseback riding, canopy tour, whale watching and waterfalls). I highly recommend a get away to Punta Gabriela to everyone! I can't wait to go back there.

“Exotic retreat with panoramic ocean views”
Reviewed 20 May 2011 for a stay in April 2011

Punta Gabriela, You feel Costa Rica here, You feel the sea and the waves crashing on the rocks, the palm trees , the rain forest and jungle. Our bedroom suite/villa had a beautiful outdoor space with a private infinity pool overlooking the Pacific ocean. We felt like we had a piece of heaven!
Karen is a wonderful host. We felt at home.
Punta Gabriela has an exotic modern zen vibe and the accomodations are first class which finds harmony in a tropical setting.
Did I mention we had lots of fun in nature, the horseback riding to the water falls, the best ever!! We will be back ! Sam and Emmy
