What does this hotel tell us about you?
I like a resort where there are interesting educational places to go nearby. At Punta Islita, you have this experience of learning about fabulous animals, birds, and plants. In addition, I prefer a boutique hotel like Punta Islita, rather than a large luxurious hotel. For example, it is charming to me the way Punta Islita’s architecture blends into the hillside overlooking the Pacific. I enjoy, too, the mix of ages here: grandparents, parents and children. There are many families in March which creates a lovely atmosphere for young and old.
