My husband and I visited Villa Deevena last week on our first ever visit to Costa Rica. The property is lovely and relaxed. If you prefer some air-conditioning (like me) the rooms are equipped with a window unit that does a great job at keep the space comfortable. Your bathroom is open to the elements on one side - the...

In addition to the many reviews about the fantastic flavours and attentive and charming service, my partner and I wanted to mention that their wine list is off the charts! Obviously their french heritage has heavily influenced their selection, as they have older vintages of Bordeaux, Chateauneuf du Pape, Burgundays as well as a well rounded selection of Italian, Chilean...

My wife and I were staying nearby at the JW Marriott Guanacaste. Many people recommended Villa Deevena, so we decided to give it a try, and we were not disappointed! Costa Rica has good roads (paved) and not so good roads (dirt and gravel). You will have to travel on a non-paved road to get here, but once you are... More

We came to this hidden gem for my birthday dinner. It was totally amazing, the decor, the ambience, the service, the hostess and host, the food. The appetizers were delicious and appropriately sized. The main course was done perfectly - we all had variations on a seafood theme! The desserts, including the birthday creme brule! Do not miss this opportunity,... More

Came for dinner three years ago, enjoyed it so much we started staying at Villa Deveena for part of our vacations the last two years and look forward to visiting again next year. The cabinas are very comfortable and you are made to feel at home upon arrival.

We have just returned from our trip to Costa Rica where we spent 5 days at Villa Deevena over New Year having visited around the same time the year before. It is an incredible hidden gem in Playa Negra. The hotel is tranquil with a relaxing and well designed pool area, comfortable rooms with a lovely outdoor shower and best... More

We came back and were not disappointed. I wrote a review last year and everything I said applies to our experience this time. The food is out of this world! We stayed for four nights and it is the most relaxing environment. It is exactly what we needed. Tasia, Patrick and the staff are amazing! Thank you to all of... More

The most delicious four course dinner I have ever had. It is best to call for a reservation as this is the hottest place to be in all the pacific, some will drive two hours just to enjoy this tranquil fresh cuisine. It's pricey but worth every penny as everything is made from scratch and perfected.
