“Luxurious, comfortable and idyllic”
Reviewed 4 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

The villa was beautiful, comfortable, and immaculate, with every amenity that one could wish for. The support services including the concierge, chef, the maids, the property manager, and the host enabled our family of 15, ranging in age from 16 to 80 to relax and thoroughly enjoy our time there. The surrounding jungle and the ocean views were a feast for the eyes while the wildlife, especially the monkeys, kept us very entertained. Estephan provided tasty, fresh, nutritious meals. The host suggested a number of optional activities led by qualified professionals. Thirteen of our group went on the zip line, which they loved. They reported that equipment safety was a top priority, which they welcomed. The naturalist guided walk in the park was excellent. The beautiful pool was a magnet for family gatherings, as was the large, comfortable living/dining area high up in the trees.

I valued the ecofriendly culture in Costa Rica. The water is potable, and fresh salads can be eaten without fear of getting sick unlike the rest of Central and South America. A car is necessary. Walking can be challenging since there are lots of unpaved, hilly roads and lots of traffic with no sidewalks.

The only amenity missing from this villa is that shampoo and conditioner were not provided.

“A wonderful family vacation”
Reviewed 29 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

This property is perfect for a family gathering. With chef Estaban preparing wonderful breakfasts and dinners it is easy to unwind and get into vacation mode very quickly. The common living and dining room space is very conducive to relaxed interactions - comfortable and very spacious.
Beautiful views and regular visits by monkeys and occasionally other animals.
Carmen does an excellent housekeeping job and Ricky (property manager) and Valerie (concierge) are both helpful and readily available.
Rent with confidence.

“Absolutely Fabulous”
Reviewed 27 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

I would recommend this villa in a heartbeat. Not only does it include a gorgeous view from the open-air living room, but it also has a lovely pool and wildlife all around the area (sometimes the monkeys will even pay you a visit in the living room!). All of the food that Esteban (our cook) was delicious. I cannot praise this place enough!

“Incredible vacation rental/awesome view/delicious cuisine!”
Reviewed 14 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Spectacular rental property, delicious cuisine by Chef Estaban, fantastic view and comfortable furnishings...what more could you ask for? The lap pool was kept clean. Carmen did a fantastic job keeping the villa clean and tip top. We loved the extra touches
she performed each day,.i.e. towel animals, fresh floral displays, folded clothes that were
left out, candles and beach towels replenished daily. Chef Estaban was a joy! We all gained weight with the delicious foods he created. He served delicious and affordable meals with lovely table decor. What a treat! Highly recommend!

“An experience that will create great memories and rejuvenate the soul”
Reviewed 3 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

person found this review helpful

This is one of the best experiences I ever had. The trip was planned for a group of 14 to stay the last week of August,we were there to celebrate two family members birthdays. We actually occupied two villas, the older adult group occupied vista azul which included 9 ppl and the younger adult group occupied dolce vita which had 4 bedrooms. I actually enjoyed staying in a separate villa since we were all young adults. The layout of both villas are manageable, but include a lot of stairs. It is suggested that elderly people or people with health issues be stationed on the second floor which has access to the elevator. Vista Azul has about 4 floors with a pool house. Underneath the pool house there are two nice size bedrooms which fit queen beds or can be turned into double/triple occupancy, Each room in the villa has its own bathroom as well. The master bedroom is on the second floor which is really grand. The master bedroom is on the second floor and fits a king bed and has a bathroom almost the same size. There are two other bedrooms on the third floor Above the bedrooms on the 4th floor is the main dining and sitting area. The dining room sat 14 of us and is an open deck. You have the option of closing curtains to prevent bugs. The area has a very beautiful view of the water. The staff was excellent! The chefs are super friendly and are amazing cooks. The food is not made with a lot of grease like an american food so you actually get to taste real flavor. Fruit is served with every meal and it will keep you full. Ricky the host is outstanding. He is very friendly and helps with any problem you need. I could write a book on how great this place was but all I can say is I had no desire to watch tv when I returned home. I did not want any greasy American food and I actually missed the friendliness of the people of Costa Rica. I am definitely going to return again. The excursions are great, it's a tourist area but not overly crowded or overbearing, you can walk to local supermarket or bar and swim as much as your heart desires.

tips:
Plan excursions from 8a-1pm, it usually rains in the afternoon
Do not leave food out or the garbage can, the monkeys will knock it over lol
Bugspray!!!!! You will have mosquito bites
Tip generously, they deserve it- cabs show up by the time you finish placing the order
If you are bringing children you might need to request a gate to block stairs
It gets dark about 6pm
Bring umbrella
To book the villa per person it costs about 600, but that was because it was 14 of us.
The excursions are priced well - ranges 45-130
Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Liked best: The trip was planned so that we participated in excursions during the day and still had free time. I enjoyed when everyone sat around the dinner table discussing how much fun they had that day.
Liked least: It rains almost everyday usually in the afternoon.
