We booked this trip as a last family vacation, as our kids are now old enough to travel on there own. We had friends visit pre covid. Was not sure what to expect but WOW. We had a fantastic time. I don't know where to start. Roberto in the snack bar amazing bartender great jokerster. Kenia our bartender/ waitress amazing. As busy as the snack bar gets they always make sure your taken care of. I don't remember all the other staffs names at the snack bar but all friendly, smiling and providing great service. Pool bar great place to get some drinks and laughs. Jesus our main bartender was amazing, Alexis (in training) bartender also was great. Never a dull moment at the pool bar. Now on the entertainment staff. I don't know all the correct spelling or names but Julio was always on top of having clean towels. Raynoldo was always great at getting everyone into the pool and active. He has a way about him that gets everyone's attention. Raikow kinda did everything as well. Always made sure activities were happening. Roberto (reservation desk for meals) was very knowledgeable. He made sure we had our reservations and took time to talk to us and answer all our questions. Our housekeeper I don't know her name but she was fantastic as well. Room always cleaned, and stocked. Never an issue.
Now the down side. The lobby bar bartenders pick and choose who they wanted to serve and when. We avoid the lobby bar for this reason.
The lobby and check in and out staff were lovely.
Now I will say the hotel is a little out dated. But ultimately we are in our rooms to sleep. The main pool needs some tiles fixed but pool is still usable. We had an issue with hot water in our rooms. I went to front desk and was fixed within an hour.
Food was plenty. But the whole no chicken for the week we were down was not great, but we managed. The cooks were amazing (sorry I don't have there names) but everyone was great. Snack bar food was awesome as well. Loved that I could eat breakfast at the snack bar. Cuban restaurant for lunch was amazing sit down style no reservation for lunch needed, dinner at Cuban restaurant was amazing as well. Food was hot and delicious.
Italian restaurant well, improvement could be made, make sure you have more then you need we went at 7pm and they had not lobster left. The Lasagna noodles were not cooked all the way. I was disappointed but went and got food at buffet. We did not make Japanese restaurant but heard nothing but good reviews.
Buffet was always clean, the grounds around the hotel was always clean.
Oh the beach. To die for. Out of my little traveling this is my dream beach. Bring your water shoes as it's a little rockey. Coral reef starting to come back, all the pretty fish we got to see right off the beach while snorkeling was amazing.
I will definitely be back next year.

I stayed a Hotel Playa Costa Verde in December of 2022. The resort was great and the service was amazing. The staff who worked throughout the resort were phenomenal. From the buffet staff all the way to the gardeners that took care of the property. I stayed with my family for 7 days and everything was great. A few staff members stood out and provided exceptional service and ensured that our stay was as pleasurable as possible. Rey who is a part of the entertainment team was absolutely amazing and very professional. He went out of his way to make sure that all our needs were met and that every minute of our stay was enjoyable. He definitely deserves all the good in the world. He definitely made our stay 100 times better. In general the whole resort and staff were phenomenal and the beaches were beautiful. You won’t regret staying at Playa Costa Verde it is truly a memorable experience.
