Wonderful stay, great location, excellent condo, Amazing view!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this beautiful condo can only be summarized as Outstanding.

The condo is top notch, the location is really great and my family (my elderly parents, two young kids of 4 and 7, and my wife and I had a terrific time.

Breakfast in the terrace, with the sea right in front of us, and the birds flying by was simply amazing. The condo has a great distribution, and the support staff is great, very helpful and very kind.

Looking forward to returning here soon.

Nice Condo with amazing views.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and clean condo. Well equipped with towels, blankets, movies, books, games etc.

Internet was intermittent, so using whatsapp was a problem (mostly out in the morning), asked condo office downstairs they said it was the entire building out, so not owners fault.

Getting to condo from main road (hwy 34) takes about 15 mins but we'll paved road.

Beach was only 3 min walk.

Would definitely stay there again.

Excellent experience. We enjoyed our stay (4 adults). Overall the property was great and exceeded our expectations. Would like to return in the future.

Great for a family vacation and would highly recommend!! Owner provided good customer service. Onsite Johan was available to provide assistance. However, I speak Spanish and was able to communicate as needed.

Looking forward to a future stay, in which I would bring other members of my family.

Beautiful property. Awesome views of Playa Blanca.

  • 4 of 5

It's a beautiful property. The condo is well appointed and clean. There are a couple of things to be aware of before renting anywhere in Golden Reef Condominium property: 1) It is a gated community. That means you are not allowed more than six people and NO additional guests even just to share a meal. Regardless of whether friends or family are staying within the resort they will not be allowed into the condo property. You will need to meet somewhere else; and 2) The unit across the hall is owned by the building owner. Expect that if their son stays there you will have to deal with the loud music until 10pm. Security apparently can't do anything about it prior to 10pm. Know the policies of any vacation rental before you make a reservation to minimize unpleasant surprises.

Owner's Response: Hello Cristian and Sheri . Thanks for the kind words and I do apologies for not making the policy on visitors more clear. The property is advertised as being located within a gated community and reservations are limited to 6 adults plus 2 children under the ages of 10-12. I am required to register all entering the resort and the condo , this is extremely important. If you are either a frequent visitor or a new traveler to Costa Rica , staying at a place where strangers are freely entering the grounds or building should be avoided , it can be very dangerous. The Punta Leona resort and the Golden Reef property are very secure , the condo is safe and the resort grounds and beach are secure and totally restricted to members and their guest. The Golden Reef Condo complex is great for families with small children or teenage children, or elderly individuals. It is HC accessible . Additionally , family gatherings are very welcome , just last week I got together with two other owners and we were able to accommodate 18 people within 3 units for a wedding party . If you read my reviews many people will describe how peaceful this place is but on occasion things can get lively , but it is rare that anyone’s tranquility is disturbed. Now if you tire of hanging around the pool , just walk or take a golf cart ride down to Playa Blanca located just 150 yards away. This pristine white sand beach is like no other on the Central Pacific Coast, better then Manuel Antonio’s State Park beach. Since it is restricted to members and guest it is one of the cleanest in all Costa Rica. Google , (Punta Leona, Blue Flag award). This is not a small Playa . It’s a long half-moon shaped beach surrounded by rainforest and Palm trees . You can swim , snorkel and even surf . You will find a Life guards station , equipment rentals and a great beach front restaurant, just steps away. At certain times of the year the monkeys are out and there are always scarlet Macaws flying from tree to tree right on the beach. Anyone considering traveling to Costa Rica will discover that the Golden Reef within the Punta Leona Resort offers you access to an abundance of activities in and around the surrounding areas. Just contact me , I ‘ve been coming here with my family for 8 years . I can steer you in the right direction , from rental Cars to Transport, from restaurants to grocery stores , from waterfalls to zip lines and from wedding parties to FAMILY gatherings.

Within close proximity of Punta Leona are The Carara National Park (a transitional forest between the dry tropical forests of the northwest and the wet rainforests of the south), the Tarcoles River (where crocodiles bask on its banks), and Playa Jaco and Playa Hermosa (world-renowned surfing beaches). The town of Jaco has many restaurants and shops. The beautiful Manual Antonio National Park is a 60 minute drive to the south. Day trips can be arranged at the Punta Leona reception area for horse-back riding, a jungle river cruise, white water rafting, sailing and fishing expeditions, and an excursion to Arenal Volcano.
