The JW Marriott Guanacaste Resort sits on a 4,000-acre development in Guanacaste called Hacienda Pinilla, which was designed with Guanacaste’s cultural history in mind. Also on the property are Avellanas beach and La Posada Beach Club – both available to guests during their stay.
Upon arrival, one notices the regional décor, which hints at the Spanish influence of colonization period. The architecture and thoughtfully-placed artwork provide a cultural touch that many big-name resorts can’t quite match.
The resort has access to 3 beaches and a residential community. It also has the largest swimming pool in Central America, perfect for family vacations. The development contains an existing championship 18-hole golf course, free-flowing pool, world-class spa, equestrian center, tennis courts, villas and beach houses.
