Great property, excellent service when you need it, best location going.
This resort is simply incredible and magical! The staff is great and super helpful. Really beautiful people! The villas are spectacular and so it’s the view, the pool, the small zip lining in the property, the fauna and the flora. I recommend it for groups, families, and couples. Basically for everyone who is looking for a luxury experience.
Also, they make the best pancakes ever with mango inside!
Amazing staff, amazing views
This is truly a luxury property. You get so much compared to other places I stayed at in Costa Rica. It was very clean and well maintained. The staff cooked us amazing food and made the best pina colada’s. Edwin was very helpful and friendly. The views are amazing and the whole place is very picturesque. The zip line added a lot of fun and offered a great view of the stars. I hope to stay here again!
The property was breathtaking! Truly magestic.
I arrived by helicopter onto the pad built on top of the villa. That was such a once in a life time experience. The views were insane! I was offers a tropical refreshments opon arrival and my bags were taken to my room. I can’t say enough good things about this experience. Everything from views to the rooms were so clean and beautiful. The outdoor shower with ocean views really made taking a shower so peaceful and calming.
I will say my favorite thing about the place was Edwin. He is the house cook and everything else you need or want he takes care of. He is great and very accommodating. He made sure everyone was happy, full, and wanted for nothing.
I highly recommend the stay here and will definitely be coming back. It’s a true paradise! I got a chance to meet the owners and they are super kind and they gave us great advice on where to eat and site see. Best vacation ever!
Owner’s Response:You guys were the best
So happy I got chance to meet everyone and can’t wait to see you next time you come back.
Thanks for everything.
Perfection! A Rockstar vacation
We had the most amazing time staying at Punta Gabriela! It was exactly as pictured, clean and even more incredible in person. There were 6 couples and we all had our own private rooms and plenty of space! The design was well thought out in every way. The main house rooms and villas were beautifully furnished and decorated. We felt very safe at all times. The true gem of our stay was Edwin who cooked most meals, arranged all transportation, ATV, snorkeling, zip lining, massages and restaurants. His famous pancakes, French fries and daily pico and guacamole with homemade chips were the “best”. We felt safe and cared for at all times. In addition to Edwin, the rest of the staff Consuelo, Liz, Minor, Willy, and Andre were incredible!! We loved them all and they worked so hard to make our stay perfect! Can’t forget to mention the house dog and cat! So sweet and therapeutic having them around. While on the property we saw monkeys, iguanas, Toucans, Macaws and all sorts of tropical birds. Incredible sunsets and views and so very relaxing. We highly recommend and we WILL be back:)
One of the top vacations I have ever taken!
Punta Gabriela was an amazing place to stay, and we will definitely return. My two granddaughters, age 8 and 11, were with us and there were plenty of things to do to entertain them….waterfall hikes, zip lining and swimming at the beach and on the property. The chef made us many meals, mostly breakfast and dinner, and they were all outstanding. The rest of the staff was helpful and friendly…it was like staying with family!! Definitely one of the top vacations I have taken!
Absolute Paradise/Surreal Resort!!!
This was my second stay at Punta Gabriella and the best word to describes this place is absolutely SURREAL. This resort is so spectacular, it is both beautiful, calm and tranquil, with a tantalizing yet cool vibe. It’s meticulously design and absolutely breath taken views of the Pacific Ocean and jungle, along with exotic animals seen at various time willmake you never want to leave the property. The people who own it and the staff there are wonderful, you feel at home and very comfortable. They are very warm, accommodating and friendly. This is a very unique resort and experience. I feel like it’s the best combination of the mediterranean islands and the tropics of the Exumas/Bahama.
Most unique way to visit Costa Rica!!!!
Most Beautiful Resort in Costa Rica!
I had the best stay at Punta Gabriela! It was my first time in Costa Rica but the owners really made me feel at home. Not only are the views absolutely breathtaking but the vibe of the entire resort is what I imagine heaven to be like! I will definitely be coming back in the future this resort is my new found happy place.
Absolutely Amazing Vacation
The difference between this place and all others is that you are not left to fend for yourself! Jesse and his wife Karen are close by and will help you with anything you need, from a ride into town to arranging any trips you want. He really knows the people and that helps with getting the best deals and good quality excursions. For example, you can take a guided quad ride to the highest waterfall in Costa Rica, but instead Jesse has side by side razors and a private guide. This allowed us to go at our own pace. There is a staff of 4 people and they are all wonderful, they will cook your breakfast, we supplied the food. We utilized the cooks he has come in 5 of the 7 nights because it was both convenient and we have a 16 month old with us and the restaurants are not that fast. We hated to leave as much for the beauty of the place as the people we met. Highly recommend Punta Gabriela
We took a group of senior staff here for a week. The separate villas combined with the big common areas were absolutely perfect; the owners and staff were attentive, helpful and just great people. We loved every minute of it.
WE DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE!!!
Punta Gabriela is an incredible property!! We had so much fun at PG, from the gorgeous villa’s…. all of them, to the wonderful views from the property and the owners Karen & Jesse! We awoke to the waves, tropical wildlife, fresh coffee & breakfast with the amazing Karena……..and truly the maker of the BEST Guacamole we have all ever had! Cocktails in the pool, not to mention our private pool and hammock chair in Villa 1. We brought our kids too, everyone had a wonderful vacation and enjoyed all the local activities, food, and the towns of Dominical and Quepos. NOT a bad Villa on property, you truly feel like you have your own slice of paradise!!
Hands down this location provides luxury accommodations, the views are spectacular, the hosts Jessie and Karen and their staff are happy to make Punta Gabriela your ultimate vacation stay.
Better than the pics!!!
This place is unreal gorgeous! The pictures don’t do it justice. Each villa is large and comfortable with all the best amenities. The grounds are meticulously kept and absolutely beautiful. Hosts are great and will hook you up with anything you need from chefs to excursions, restaurants etc etc.
Punta Gabriela is one of the most picturesque properties that I’ve experienced anywhere in the world. The separate villas provide the perfect amount of privacy and the common areas (pool, kitchen, bar) were the perfect gathering for large groups. It provided the ideal balance. The location is ideal in that you have outstanding views of the lush rainforest AND the ocean while also being close to town. This property is one of a kind.
Amazing week away with friends!
The house and location were absolutely beautiful! Fabulous and friendly staff there to help with anything you need!
Would highly recommend a vacation here and looking forward to going back in the future!
Slice of Paradise
This place is absolutely amazing! The views are incredible and you won’t find better service anywhere! The food is amazing as well! I would highly recommend this place!!!
A little piece of heaven
This is a great place to get a away with a group of friends. It is a little piece of heaven.
Costa Rica’s Paradise
It is really hard to describe just how wonderful Punta Gabriela is. The views from all over the property are amazing. Each villa feels like its own private getaway. Jesse, Karen and Carina are the most generous hosts you will ever come across. They made sure we were always taken care of, wether it be on the property, or running around with all our daily excursions. I can not wait to come back year after year.
Jungle Paradise !!!!!
Starting out with a bang !!! We landed on the penthouse rooftop Heli-pad in a private helicopter and it kept getting better. Amazing views, privacy, comfort while super close to beach, stores, excursions and more!!! The villas are amazing.
Looking forward to coming back often.
This place was fantastic!! I loved the open, social vibe with the community kitchen, deck, and pool area. But we also had our beautiful private villas when we wanted our own space. The best part was taking a helicopter flight from the top of the house. Unreal!!
BEST PLACE OF ON PLANET EARTH!!
What a beautiful surprise. I almost cancelled my Costa Rica trip and I’m so happy I didn’t. Punta Gabriela is a one of a kind paradise. The property is very well maintained and so many things to highlight. I really enjoyed making my meals in their commercial grade kitchen, waking up to gorgeous views (I stayed at their penthouse suite) and being in Dominical (very cute town, close to. some cute. bars. +good waves to surf!!). Jesse and Karen are also the best hosts!!! Really made the stay memorable and special. & everyone at PG are all very welcoming and made me feel like it’s home away from home! Everything was beyond expectation from the moment I stepped foot there. I can’t wait to return and this was really one to remember!
PS – literally was tearing up as I leaving cuz I just had such a wonderful time!!
