Where do I even begin? Casa de Las Brisas is great all around. The instant we got here, staff helped us out of the taxi and moved all our bags into the house. We walked in the door and the amazing Marcos was in the kitchen cooking up a delicious meal! Every day we had breakfast and dinner by Marcos and let me tell you, that man can cook! Everything was delicious and food I normally don't like (seafood), I could not stop eating! I highly recommend getting him for your meals. Especially because the restaurants around, while nice, are quite expensive. Stay in the comfort of Casa de las Brisas and let the highly entertaining Marcos cook for you! Marta and Elsa, the house maids, are so very friendly and leave beautiful arrangements on your beds, as well as fill you with such joy as you communicate. Did not think that something I would miss once I left Costa Rica would be certain people, but truly Marco and Marta feel like friends to my family and I. Ricky is very hospitable and everyone is willing to help you with all your tourist needs, including running down streets to get you taxis as well as even driving you themselves!
There were 10 of us and there was more than enough room. I had troubles deciding where I wanted to hang out! Whether down in the large pool looking up at the sloths in the trees, in the game room with the bar and pool table, the main level with the entertaining Marcos and soaking pool, or on the top deck with amazing views and chilling with the monkeys! My first time in Costa Rica was made amazing by Casa de Las Brisas, our own little slice of paradise.
Staying at Casa de las Brisas was a complete pleasure in every way. The home is beautiful and the setting is perfect for a yoga retreat -- off the main road, but not isolated. The staff really made the stay spectacular. Marta and Elsa, our housekeeping staff were amazing and so helpful. They made sure we had towels and fresh laundry.
Chef Marco went way beyond our expectations and every meal was absolutely delicious. His sauces, salads, and desserts were unexpected delights and he was open to suggestions and requests. Our group had 2 birthdays and he made each one special.
Ricky was a great host, helping us with A/C problems and safe batteries. He had good suggestions for places to go out and information about the the area.
I would love to come back next year and will recommend this property to anyone looking to visit Costa Rica.
Thank you for helping to make our trip incredible.

My friend and his family all joined together in this huge home for my buddies wedding. We stayed for a week and we all wish it could've been more. The staff was all very helpful with getting around town, making sure we had clean clothes and the cooking staff was superb. Every meal was something new and it all was fresh. Marcos and Jimmy were really nice and were good at cooking our meals. We had enough food from breakfast to snack on for lunch.
Rick helped us setup different excursions that people wanted to setup. He was always around if someone needed to go down to the beaches and he knew were all the hot spots around the area were.
The saddest part about this trip was leaving Casa De Las Brisas and all of the TT Monkeys.

We stayed here as a group of 15 adults and 1 child for a friend's wedding. We were welcomed by the hosts Ricky & Jeff right away and they kept popping by daily to see how we were doing. The rooms are quite spacious and clean. Each couple had their own bathroom. The place was cleaned very well mon-fri and the chefs Marcos & Jimmy were fantastic!! Their food was delicious and they were very friendly and flexible about meal times. They even cleaned up after us! The waterfall pools were enjoyed everyday and the location was perfect! We saw all 3 species of
Monkeys almost daily - on the terrace or outside the living room window. Would highly recommend for large groups!
We were a total of 21 people. The house had lots of space to spread out. Our Chefs Marco and Jimmy were spectacular. Best food we had in Costa Rica and much cheaper than eating out. Our cost for the chefs was $1900 for the week. We used american $ or credit cards wherever we went. Marta washed our clothes twice during the week. We did lots of great activities: I can recommend the Spice tour and the younger folks (and some middle aged folks) loved the Waterfall Rappelling tour. Squirrel Monkeys and Capuchins visited us daily and the howlers woke us up every morning. The beach is quite a hike in the heat and humidity of Costa Rica.
