“A Week We Will Never Forget”
Reviewed 21 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We spent a week at Villa Tranquila and it was outstanding. The facility was impeccably clean and well maintained in every way. The villa was centrally located to everything inside Hacienda Pinilla. You could walk to the golf club house and tennis courts in less than 3 minutes and the private beach and beach club were just a short drive away. The suites are very large and well designed with everything you need when you want your private space. They each have a safe, mini fridge, 40” smart TV, coffee makers, comfortable king or queen beds, hide-a-bed couches, their own sitting room, patio and central air conditioning so you have total control of your environment. The bathrooms are very large with insta-hot water heaters giving you all the hot water you desire when you want it. The maid service was excellent. Not only was the space very clean when we arrived but it was kept that way the entire week. The central living areas were very large, clean and stocked with everything you need during your stay. The grounds and pool are very well maintained. Fast internet, Wifi was available everywhere inside the house and even out by the pool when you were sitting in the lounge chairs. The two music systems give us all the music both inside and outside the house that we could ever want. The country of Costa Rica is unbelievable with such friendly people and so much to do that you couldn’t see and do it all in a month let alone a week. The group had a blast with the various tours and events available to us. We even attended a local celebration with bull riding and excellent food. We could not have picked a better place for our vacation. Both everything about the villa and the country it is located in represents the best of the best. I highly recommend Villa Tranquila as the place in paradise that will provide you with the most fantastic vacation that you will never forget. We did not want to leave at the end of the week but duty called us back to the states. We will definitely return to Costa Rica and Villa Tranquila in the future.

Reviewed 17 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Incredible stay! I highly recommend Villa Tranquila to anyone visiting Tamarindo, Costa Rica. We had a large group, but were not crowded at all. Spacious and well-appointed home was the perfect warm weather getaway for us. Eugene was very accommodating and helpful on a daily basis. Great location, great pool, great rooms -- everything about it was great!

“Spectacular stay”
Reviewed 31 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

To begin with, this Villa itself is amazing. Since we first saw it, my (now) husband and I thought this would be a great place to have our wedding reception. Plus, since we had an entourage of foreign friends, they could stay with us a few days before so we could spend time with them. And what a week! We had been planning our wedding reception a few months before, and Eugene, the property manager, was so helpful and always suggesting ideas for us. He even let us visit the villa a couple of times before to check out the property and take some measurements for the wedding reception details. Finally the week arrived, when we got there everything was impecable, from the kitchens to the bathrooms. The rooms were all set for the guests, and it was just time to chill before the big day. The property is so PRIVATE that there are no near neighbors around, so on Friday we had a BBQ (Yes, the Villa is equipped with a huge griller) with our closest family and friends with great music (there's a Bluetooth audio equipment too). For our wedding day, all the providers were setting things up since very early, which i cannot stop thanking the manager and his wife for taking their time to supervise and make sure we had everything we needed. And the final setup turned out to be magical. The guests came, and were amazed by the size of the Villa and how beautiful it was. At night, as a just married couple, we walked down the stairs and everybody were gathered around the pool. There was a group playing, we had an awesome reception, and everything turned out to be perfect. We recommend this Villa for big families or groups of friends that would like to gather up for a holiday. Although the rooms are in separate wings (which gives them more privacy), the social areas are great to hang around and enjoy a great time in an amazing destination Hacienda Pinilla is.

“Awesome Stay at Villa Tranquila in Costa Rica”

You will never want to leave, Spectacular!!!
WOW, what a week. Costa Rica is a beautiful safe country, friendly people, great health care available if you needed it and so many activities available that you could not fit them all in a month let alone a week. Hacienda Panilla where villa Tranquila is located is a 4600 acre gated area with security guards at every entrance and miles of roads, nature trails, beaches, horse stables, tennis courts, gyms, restaurants, a beautiful 18 hole PGA level golf course, and all kinds of birds, monkeys and so many other type animals to mention. You are also very close to Tamarindo where you find shopping, more restaurants and surf shops everywhere. The area is the surf capital of the world. The waves are unbelievable and the water is clear and perfect.
Villa Tranquila is an amazing villa. It is the largest Villa in the area with over 13,000 square feet of living space, Very large rooms throughout. The kitchen dining area is very large with seating space easily for up to 30 people or more. The kitchen area has everything you need for cooking with plenty of refrigerator and freezer space. You can hire a cook to cook your meals at a very reasonable price if you prefer. It also has a large screen smart TV with hundreds of channels and Netflix if you want. The villa has a 15 Meg internet feed with 5 wireless routers. You have a strong wireless signal wherever you go. The 8 suites are very large with their own siting rooms and patios. It is your own private area when you want it. The bathrooms are large with insta-hots and plenty of hot water. Each suite has its own central air system so you completely control the tempter inside your suite. The central rooms also have their own central air systems. The living room features a second large screen smart TV, DVD player, music stereo system that plays through speakers in the living room and kitchen and beautiful bar stocked with every kind of glass you may need and a commercial ice maker. It also has a large patio area with an unbelievable view. The laundry is big and available for your use at any time. The swimming pool is large and warm. The patio area off the kitchen is covered with very good lighting, a large gas grill and tables and chairs if you want to sit outside and just relax. There is a second music stereo system that you can also use in the patio area. You can play the loudest music all night long if you like because there is not any neighbors. The location is great! You are very close to the golf club house and tennis courts. You are 4 to 5 minutes from the remote beach in one direction and four to 5 minutes from the beach club in another direction. And 4 to five minutes from the horse stables in another direction. Villa Tranquila is cantered to everything inside Hacienda Pinilla. You are also just 15 minutes from Tamarindo with all it has to offer. I could go on and on but to sum it up I highly recommend Villa Tranquila for any wedding or other event and/or vacation. I would not want to stay anywhere else in the area. It is the best location and villa available. Always very clean and ready for all you want to do. The daily maid service is the best and the staff are all very helpful and professional if you call and need them to come fix anything or just help in every way. If you want the best vacation possible and the best time of your life go to Costa Rica and stay at Villa Tranquila. We had a blast.

“Amazing place all around!”
Reviewed 23 June 2015 for a stay in April 2015

I was looking for a house to host all of my family and close friends within a private environment yet spacious and comfortable for all of them. If this rings a bell for you, look no more. You found it! Villa Tranquila is beautiful from any angle. My family, friends and I had an amazing time. We enjoyed the open space within the living room and kitchen (it is BIG!), pool area, gardens around the back and front yard and the 8 bedrooms. There is no much you can ask (or not get) from bedrooms with living rooms, balcony and complete bathroom in all of them. The house is equipped with any item you could possibly need, which means you just need to worry of getting there, get everyone a bed, get enough food to stuff the pantry area, drinks to fill the refrigerators and you are all set. Any other thing you may need, please make sure to contact Eugene – the general manager – and I am quite sure he will point you in the right direction. He certainly adds value to your vacation as he’s always willing to help and just one phone call away. We enjoyed so much our stay that we are coming back next year.
100% recommended!
