Edwin, the property manager/ guide, and the staff at Punta Gabriela were the best! I feel like I left Costa Rica with a new friend because myself and my group wanted Edwin to hang out with us everywhere we went! He is a very helpful, caring, knowledgeable, fun guy to hang out with! He even owns his own restaurant at the top of a mountain that was excellent! Thank you Edwin! And thanks to the entire staff at Punta Gabriela for their everyday friendliness and help with us during our stay. I look forward to coming back again!
This is the coolest place you will ever stay. From the drive straight up the steep hillside to the monkeys and toucans in the trees to the beautiful home and grounds, you will be dazzled. Plus there are great attractions nearby from zip lining to horseback/waterfall trips to sport fishing. Take the helicopter from the airport if you can. Just a big WOW!
Punta Gabriela is absolutely beautiful. This property along with its extremely gracious staff offers the height of luxury vacation mixed with adventure and exploration of some of the most exotic locals in all of Costa Rica.
I perfect vacation from beginning to end – I huge THANKYOU to Edwin!!! We stayed with three families and we couldn’t stop saying how much we loved the property and Edwin. So much to do in the surrounding area, we wished we had another week.
The property was magnificent. Edwin & the staff were beyond amazing to all of us. The food was always fresh & delicious. The nature & wildlife was beautiful. Eddie helped us plan all excursions and everything was just effortless.
We came to Punta Gabriela in mid January. The property was beautiful with amazing views of the ocean. Everywhere you looked you had an amazing view. The owner of the property was very easy to reach and always got back to us right away. Edwin and his staff took care of us while we were there cooking us the most delicious meals that I am still dreaming about. While we were there we went whitewater rafting, zip lining and an ATV tour through the mountains. I must say this was a trip of a lifetime that I will forever hold dear to my heart. We will be going back to Punta Gabriela!
This is an outstanding property! We had multiple couples coming together and it was so nice that there was room for everyone to be together and also affording privacy. Edwin (property manager and so much more) was invaluable in getting us organized, cooking, arranging outings, and so much more. We really appreciated all of the staff (Consuelo, Willie, Minor, Audrey, and Liz) who seemed to truly care that our vacation was magical. We hope to return.
We stayed at the Punta Gabriela for 11 days over Christmas and had the most fantastic experience! The main house is exquisite with beautiful Balinese art and furnishings. The entire house and 3 beautiful villas have great air conditioning and exceeded our expectations! The pictures do not portray exactly how beautiful the buildings and surrounding area are. The professional kitchen is well equipped for any food preparation..The open air dining room seats 12 people comfortably. Each of the three villas is beautifully decorated and spacious and villa #1 has its own private pool and swing with magnificent sunset views. The extra “plus” making this a 5 star retreat is EDWIN. Without him as chef, concierge and personal driver, this experience would not be the same! HIGHLY RECOMMMENDED by a family who has traveled the 6 continents.
