Please read to the end before renting there! I spent 2 weeks in Costa Rica. Totally loved my trip and experience minus the 24hrs I spent at Las Avellanas Villas. I had rented the place for 6 nights, stayed only one. The first thing I noticed when I checked in the villa was the degree of dirtiness of the place.... More

They treated us badly without good manners or willing to help, it says walking distance to the beach but it's very far, they wanted to charge us for everything - not nice people don't stay there. The photos of Facebook are completely fake, it doesn't look like the photos at all. There is a nicer place and with a trail... More

If you are expecting resort accommodation this isn't it. We liked how close it was to several attractions and places to eat. We rented a car from owners and drove all around, like to Tamarindo and Santa Cruz. We had ants but only when I was careless and left out food. A little bug spray bought at the supermarket in...

We stayed here at the end of September, our plan was staying for 2 nights, but we only stayed one night -- the "villa" was in a very poor shape -- bad maintenance -- the toilet didn't even have the seat - there were ants all over place - it looked dirty - cheap linen & terry. I had even... More

Isabel is easygoing and this place is simply gorgeous and so affordable! I felt in a nature sanctuary! Preferable to have your own car and good to be able to have a kitchen. I surfed everyday and loved coming back to this cozy spot. I saw some of the other places but if you want to be amongst nature and... More

Waking up to howlers and huaracas never gets old!! Walking to the beach through the mangrove and estuary whether for a surf or just time on the beach :) resetting my circadian... More

We stayed there for one week. And I would recommend this place to everyone who likes some quite time in a modern home. The villas are nicely set up. Kitchen with everything you need for cooking (a small supermarket just around the corner) and a small couch to read a book. There's a spacious seperate bedroom and also a big... More

Amazing experience!! I learned to surf at this break a decade ago and continue to return :) the owners are wonderful and accommodating - I will always recommend Playa Avellanas to friends and family who are traveling to Guanacaste, Costa Rica :)

...but you don't get what you see on the pictures. We only booked one night with the intention to stay longer. But luckily it was only one night that we booked . We don't mind ants and other insects. But the surroundings \ garden were dusty, the cabins hot but with interesting architecture. The owners were very friendly. Unless you... More

Dear Knut, we are very sorry, that you booked your trip to Avellanas in the driest and hottest time of the year . Yes you are right that our nature is suffering from not having rain and it looks now different than in other parts of the country. The north of Guanacaste is the driest part of Costa Rica and...
