Fabulous warm welcome from Leo with advice on local restaurants and other ideas. Excellent big room with comfortable bed, AC and ceiling fan. Cracking pool area. Location is a few minutes (5 or less to the beach and some nice restaurants being another 5-20 minutes' walk. I would go back without hesitation.

This villa is special and I can see why many people return year after year. The staff are sweet and skilled. Thank you Christian, Leo, Hairo, Randall, Ronnie, Sandra and everyone else. Upbeat, great Junior Suite, great pool, great food. Get the continental breakfast. A beautiful place with lovely garden, and a few minutes walk to the beach. Very quiet - except on the nights with live music!!! Wonderful music!!! Thank you Dream Machine and Mango Taxi, your music was the best I have heard in a long time! We are so relaxed after a few days.

There are two sides to the hotel. The main part of the hotel with Standard or Superior rooms and the part across the street, “el oasis” which houses all the suites. Having seen both, they are too different to be seen as part of the same hotel. The main hotel Superior rooms have kind of a rustic elegance. Rooms include a ceiling fan, wood ceiling, dark tile floors, air conditioner, sheers and black out drapes, small empty fridge, coffee maker, room safe, full closet, single luggage rack, shower, single sink, nice enough plain white bed linens with a bed scarf, granite countertops in the bathroom and a single modern chair.

On a Friday night in high season you are likely to hear music from the restaurant until about 9:30 or 10:00. We heard a Canadian group that played stuff from mostly 1980’s. It was a nice addition to the evening. Wait staff are warm and friendly. The restaurant is not cheap. Most entrees range from $18-$39 or in that neighborhood. Dinner for two with drinks can with almost no effort be $100 -$150 depending on your hunger and urge to splurge. There are several vegetarian options. I had a delicious veggie pasta for under $20. Breakfast was included for us.

Our superior room (king bed, room 108) could have used a new shower head. It was really old, small and forceful. Many of the better hotels now have rain shower heads. They had no individual sized shampoos etc which matches my preference for environmental reasons. Our view was overlooking the roof, the bar and the restaurant. The main hotel with the restaurant, garden and pool has charm.

Across the street in “el oasis” are the suites. I saw only one suite (312) of however many are available. It was a junior suite and it was awful. The bed was much smaller than in a Superior room as was the bathroom. All of the fabrics and finishes were dated. It did not have the same feel or aesthetic at all to the Superior Room. Having a microwave and a few other bits (not a full kitchen as are pictured in some of the larger suites) was nothing that I could appreciate. To me, the so-called “upgrade” to a junior suite was actually a downgrade. We were accommodated by moving to the Superior Room that we had reserved.

Just a note about the location. We chose it because it was fairly close (within an hour) to the airport. We started our vacation at the hotel and ended it at the hotel. In between we traveled to four other hotels and drove about 1000 kilometers. Playa Formosa is a silty more muddy kind of beach as you walk closer to the water. It’s not one of the loveliest beach options in Costa Rica. Walking to the beach takes about five minutes, but if you end up driving you will likely have to pay for parking. There are not a lot of options for shopping or restaurants close by. You are pretty much stuck unless you drive to a bigger town.

If you’re looking for a nice updated suite then look very carefully. In my opinion, the suites here are quite dated. My other belief is that units (units that are sold under the same name) in any given hotel should have a consistent standard and feel. It does not happen here. The two neighboring properties are very different. It’s hard to know that going in.

One last note. One morning my husband and I could smell pot from the reception/pool area. I went out the gate and took a look. It had to be coming from the hotel or within a few feet of it. Whatever the case, it was off-putting.

We had a great time at Playa Villa del Suenos! Well kept gardens, clean room, great staff, good entertainment, and excellent food!!! Staff very friendly! We stayed in the one bedroom suite, well worth the price. Very relaxing and peaceful. One thing I would recommend is if hotel provided beach chairs for the beach. Even for a small rental fee it would be nice. Since the beach is within walking distance.

We were in town for business and checking in at 4:30 pm and was going to our meeting by 4:45 pm, Staff were very kind, helpful and got us checked in fast to make our appointment. We were by 10 pm and the restaurant and lounge were closed. I understand in the high season they are open later. Were told of the restaurants nearby that were open.

Our room was large, nicely decorated, comfortable, well-appointed and very clean. Everything you are looking for as a traveler.

The next morning we were late for breakfast but they served us, the typical breakfast was tasty, I would have liked an option to add bacon or ham but that was not possible, but I was grateful for the meal.

We asked for a late check out so we could lounge by the pool and that was not a problem.

I enjoyed my stay and I will come back.
