Some Info about Puntarenas:
Puntarenas (Pointsands, from "punta arenas", or "sand point" in Spanish) is the capital and largest city in the province Puntarenas, Costa Rica
Puntarenas is generally hotter than the Costa Rican Central Valley, with daytime highs ranging from 30°C to 35°C in the coldest/hottest months, respectively.
In Puntarenas the forest can be seen from any pier on the north side of the city, and some fishermen with small boats on these piers may be able to take you for a small tour if asked and offered compensation.
Stayed for a single night to zip line early the following morning. Michael was a gracious host and made a great restaurant recommendation (Kimbo's is great!). The apartment is neat, clear and well equipped. The location can't be beat and if traveling by car you will feel comfortable with it in the secure gated lot. Thanks again for your hospitality Michael!
Excellent stay and great conversations had at Michael's Surfside Hotel. Stay here and you won't be disappointed. Especially if you stay in room #6! Large room with a sweet terrace facing the beach.
Walking distance from the ferry and cruise piers and center of town with lots of restaurants to choose from along the way.
You're a great host, Michael. Thanks for the stay!
Michael's apartment was literally surfside, just 20 feet from the beach. Close to restaurants and just 30 minute walk from the bus stop or cab ride of 1500 colones. Room was clean with attentive staff on site. Would stay here again for easy access to beach.
Nous avons été très bien reçu, Mickaël est très disponible.
La chambre était très grande et très propre, pas très loin de petits restaurants (website hidden) piscine est un atout très charmant
Michael was nice and very helpful with determining where to eat. We only stayed one night as Puntarenas was just a town that we were passing through.
Many thanks to Michael, the place is amazing, we enjoyed our stay in the apartment, the apart is clean, we found everything we needed, the kitchen is full. We will show all the photos & Video to our friends, we will speak about Puntarenas, about the wonderful beach, the swimming pool, we really liked every min we spend there, If we plan to visit Costa Rica in the future, we will be back for sure. PURA VIDA
Thanks Mike! Thank you for being so Accommodating to all my needs. Love the place, the pool, Room is in great shape, (great AC!) It nice having easy in and out.... specially in Puntarenas.
My girlfriend and I had a great time at Michael's. Located very close to the ferry dock. The room was clean and the pool was refreshing. Good place to crash before making the journey across the waters.
Well we went to Micheals Surfside hotel thinking it was going to be a livley little beach town, but it kind of shut down at 7pm, not much of a night life, not sure if it was the off season. I will say that it was very clean and comfortable and the air and cable were great. Manuel the hotel manager was wonderful, he was very informative and helpful. It wasn't what I expected of the town, but the actual hotel and service were great. I heard its a great place to stay before trying to catch an early ferry to Tortuga island.
Nice place to stay, aircontidioned, small pool in the patio, the hotel is next to the beach and only a few blocks to walk from the ferry. Michael was a very friendly host and we had a nice stay.
