We stayed at the unit number 5 and it was a perfect time! As a family of four with 2 girls under 10, the relatively calm private beach and pool within a short walk was a big win. The condo was clean and well equipped, with the resort staff helpful with activity arrangements and recommendations. We had lunch at the... More

The awe-inspiring view from the resort, when you first arrive, is a comforting sign that you found paradise. The villas and the tropical landscape are exquisitely maintained. The infinity pool is located next to Picante, the restaurant overlooking Playa Azul, which offers great food and is run by a professional staff. This private beach, surrounded by the property, is a... More

We stayed in Villa Ginger #2 and Villa Las Olas #4. Our week stay was too short. Like others mentioned: the villas are very well-stocked, beds and other furniture very comfortable, great base for outings, the onsite restaurant is good for both luch and dinner. Villa Las Olas has the best location in the resort for privacy, trees on one... More

We had a great stay here for a week for our honeymoon. Isabella was fantastic about working with us over email before our trip. She set up our car rental and planned all of our guided tours and a massage. The villa is clean, comfortable and has TV and wifi. The pool and restaurant on site are great. The black... More

Bahia Pez Vela in general was the perfect spot for us (family with two young kids). Very private beach with few visitors compared to so many, safe for swimming and snorkeling (Clean. The resort is made up of a cluster of villas with very well kept grounds, a very convenient restaurant, Picante, serving excellent food, and pools. Cesar in the... More

Our unit (19) had a great view of the bay, and ocean beyond, and was a short walk to the pool and restaurant. The resort is very quiet. These are owner occupied units, so they vary in appearance. It's more of condo living than a resort, which for our family of four, was perfect. We shopped in Coco at the... More

Private beach is black sand with tide pools in the morning that catch shells and critters. There were never many people around somehow! The monkeys however are everywhere and carry on early morning conversations. We were a family of 7 and stayed in #14, an end unit with our own small pool. We were pleased to find a grill and... More

We stayed in Villa Pelicano, #10. The apartment itself was well-appointed, modern, and convenient to the beach, the pool and Picante. We very much enjoyed the grounds, having a beach and bay essentially to ourselves, and the food at Picante.

This was our first time to Costa Rica. We stayed at two villas in Bahia Pez Vela... #1 and #33. In general, Bahia Pez Vela is a beautiful resort if you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing place. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and everyday the grounds keepers are out and about maintaining it... very well maintained! The staff were... More
