Hilton Takes Over Two Beach Hotels
The U.S. hotel chain Hilton has signed an agreement to take over the administration of two beach hotels on the Pacific coast this year, according to a statement from the company.
As of December, Hilton will administer Fiesta Resort, in the central Pacific town of Puntarenas, and Fiesta Premier Resort & Spa, in the northwestern Guanacaste province. These hotels will change their names to Doubletree by Hilton Puntarenas Resort and Hilton Papagayo Resort, respectively.
Starting up operations in Costa Rica is “a magnificent example of the commitment Hilton has made its clients to expand its offerings through contracts with hotel owners who believe in the strength of our brand name,” said Hilton vice-president of marketing Jeff Diskin, according to the statement.
During the next few months, both hotels will be remodeled to adjust to Hilton’s style.
The Hilton Papagayo Resort will have a total 202 rooms, while the all-inclusive Doubletree by Hilton will have 410 rooms. Hilton also has hotels in El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua.
Tourism is one of the main economic drivers in Costa Rica. Last year, the industry generated $1.6 billion from 1.6 million visitors.
