COSTA RICA: Luxury Hotel In Costa Rica Earns Prestigious Travel Award

A prestigious luxury hotel located in the province of Guanacaste has earned the 2015 Crystal Apple, a special recognition issued by Apple Vacations each year. The Riu Palace Costa Rica is this year’s recipient of the Crystal Apple for Best Staff and Service in Central America.

This is the second year in a row that the Riu Palace Costa Rica earns the coveted Crystal Apple Award. The criteria set forth by Apple Vacations to consider award recipients is explained as follows:

All of our Golden Apple award winning hotels shine, but our Crystal Apple Award Winners truly dazzle! Their prestige is marked by the fact that they are hand chosen by you, our travelers. Every year, hundreds of thousands of Apple Vacationers complete our Vacation Satisfaction Questionnaires and determine which hotels and resorts are worthy of the honor, inspiring the leisure travel industry to continue to raise the bar, year after year

Apple Vacations describes the Riu Palace Costa Rica as: a property that holds a Travelife Gold Award and Sustainability Certification. The resort also utilizes biodegradable cleaning products, strives for an active reduction in water, electricity, and chemical products, and educates employees and guests with informative, eco-friendly materials.

This hotel is fully prepared to provide the best service to its customers, has four swimming pools (one with a wet bar), a Jacuzzi, gym, steam bath, and a wellness center, Renova Spa, with different treatments and massages.

The quality of the cuisine offered at the restaurants is exceptional thanks to the chefs, who prepare dishes from classic to the most exotic. You’ll want to try each of the menus and thanks to the all-inclusive service; you will be able to enjoy the buffet restaurant or the four different theme restaurants. Tempt your palate with Italian, Fusion, Japanese, and Grill Steakhouse choices.

Enjoy a variety of activities on the beautiful beaches, such as diving or fishing in the Pacific waters. During the day, there are many entertainment choices. The hotel has volleyball, windsurfing, sailing, snorkeling equipment, and more.

The awards were announced during a gala event at the Art Institute of Chicago on September 14th. The Crystal Apple Award for Best Hotel Chain was presented to Secret Resorts and Spas, which has one location in Costa Rica: The Dreams Las Mareas, which is also located in the Gold Coast of Guanacaste.
