Doubletree By Hilton Central Pacific - All Inclusive, Boca Barranca
Doubletree in December
The overall experience was subpar. The property looked beautiful but it felt like we were stuck on an island because the area that the hotel is located in is a bit rough. Upon arrival it took us a while to check in because the conceriege was giving us a hard time of changing the number of occupants from 3 people to 2 people, smh. It was my birthday yet there were no special gifts or welcomes even though we mentioned it upon reservation. This is a family friendly hotel so there were lots of kids and babies with their family. A few days when I went to take a shower the water would be discolored when running for the first few minutes. The building itself was not as modern, even though we were in the newly renovated building #3, so that might be a reason why. For some reason none of the jacuzzis were hot or even lukewarm which was quite odd. The food was horrible. There were a few Spanish dishes but it was mostly "cafeteria food". I enjoyed the day that I spent off the resort doing activities. Considering the price of the hotel I can say it was as expected. If you have more money to spend at a better resort I would suggest so.

So-so. A quick overnight stop that I won’t repeat.
Was not as impressed as I should have been. I think it would be a great option for a young family. I was just stopping through to break up the drive from Tamarindo to Quepos.

Still a good nearby all inclusive resort
we just wanted to spend one night with our kid celebrating his bday and it was fine, the food quality was good the room was fine as well and it just need a bit more of maintenance overall in the room areas but overall it was quite fine.

Short stay in July.
This is a great hotel. The variety of food and activities was excellent. We didn't like the shows at night, but most folks seemed to like them. Even this is vacation time, it wasn't overly crowded. We would come again.
