This place is beautiful and meticulously maintained! Everyone there is accommodating and helpful, yet never in your way! The rooms are spacious and beautiful, the grounds are vibrant and welcoming. Mel's homemade baked goods are TO DIE FOR! When not being supplied delicious goodies, we enjoyed cooking in the outdoor kitchen, laying by the pool, paddle boarding, adventuring to nearby... More

Everything about Casa Melray is perfect in so many ways! Mel greeted us at the gate upon our arrival and this hidden jewel became our slice of heaven. I had searched for countless hours trying to find accommodations during peak tourist season that would accept less than a 1 week commitment. Then I was referred to Casa Melray and everything...

We had the pleasure of renting the guest house for a week for my husband's 50th. Upon arrival on Christmas day we were greeted not only with the most beautiful accommodation but homemade cookies and a card. Everything is beautiful and comfortable both inside and the pool and amazing gardens in the courtyard. The staff is amazing as are the... More

This is a hidden jewel. Easy access to everything one would want to see and do in Costa Rica, but then you may not want to leave Casa Melray. We didn't. ;) I didn't know what to expect but ended up loving the outdoor kitchen where we could prepare and share breakfast and happy hour with others. Our room was... More

This place is definitely a 5 start plus small resort, the rooms are up to date, first impression was wow, very clean, nice bathroom, bed is perfect, I slept thru every night, tv in all rooms but you won't need it here, they have plenty of stuff you can use kayaks, paddle boards, boogie boards, fishing poles and anything else...

We were in the San Jose area for some business and we had a 4 day break. We immediately thought of heading to Casa MelRay. This is our third time there. We hopped a shuttle from San Jose and were there in about 6 hours. Even though we only had two days, it was heaven. The room, the staff ,... More

We had a great room with a view of the ocean. The best beds that were so comfortable we only got up because we didn't want to miss anything. Enjoyed sitting at the kitchen bar watching the soccer games and lounging in the pool.

I wanted to get this review posted before I forgot how wonderful Mel and Ray have designed and maintain Casa MelRay. We stayed 6 nights this month and didn't want to leave. With only 4 rooms plus a small rental home and a penthouse apartment the hotel is intimate and charming. The hosts are generous (cookies & treats) and very... More

This is my second trip to Costa Rica and have been so fortunate to stay at Casa Melray each time. Never have I enjoyed a holiday more. In fact, I asked Mel and Ray if they ever had a guest that never left. They are the most gracious hosts and make you feel like you are part of the family.... More

We only stayed one night here, but it was a definite highlight of our 8 days in CR. I actually found this place when trying to book a kayak fishing trip. Turned out, the guy i booked the fishing trip was busy that day (Valentines Day) , but our hosts made it happen for us!! One of their friends took... More
