We stayed in Villa 11, which is one of the ones in the first line in front of the beach. Very nice house, had everything we needed (kitchen stuff, towels, wifi, DVD player, etc). Resort staff were very friendly and helpful. Beach is BEAUTIFUL. It is small, but has a large sandy area in the center where you can go... More

We just arrived home from an incredible vacation! We stayed in Villa #1 which is the perfect location on the beach and next to the Picante Restaurant and main pool. Villa #1 is exquisitely designed and the owners are remarkable hosts. They will give you directions and recommendations of places to eat and visit during your stay. Also are available... More

The entire property is beautiful and clean. Villa 14 is private and having its own pool was a great addition. Being on the end we had howler monkeys visit throughout the week, super cool. House layout is perfect and very clean. Short walk to the beach or the resort pool. Our boys fished off the rocks near the beach and... More

We just returned from 8 days in Villa #6 and we loved this resort. The location was perfect for us - mixed age family of four. It is quiet and lovely. The villa was clean and ready for us upon arrival. We loved having the kitchen and laundry facilities to use. But the private pool was the most loved and... More

This was an great trip for my family. I can't say enough about the staff at Bahia Pez Vela. Both Cesar and Jackie went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. We have traveled to many destinations over the years, and you would be hard-pressed to find a more comfortable, relaxing, and beautiful place than this. The... More

We stayed for a week in February in villa #15 and it was outstanding. We came at night without GPS which was probably not a good decision, but eventually made it. It was hard to leave the resort as it has everything you need. Beach front, infinity pool, wading pool for kids, great restaurant, snorkeling right off the beach...doesn't get... More

From the beginning, contacting the owner Al to arriving at Villa #10 our experience was fantastic! Villa #10 did not disappoint us. It was spacious and it was everything we were looking for. Great big patio with fabulous views of the beach and bay. Yes, the sand is black but nice and soft. The villa has all the amenities you... More

I had a great time at this villa with my family. The villa has every thing you may need, enough kitchen implements, towels, WiFi, A/C, laundry machine, air mattress, grill, etc. It´s spacious, you can accommodate a lot of people and not feel crowded. It is much better than in the photos. The pool is very close to the villa... More

It was our first trip to CR and we knew that nice oceanfront rentals are hard to come by in the area. Most that we looked at were just off the beach, and when we toured other beaches in the area we didn't feel they were as clean. It is not a big beach, but has fun rock areas to... More

Right on its own private beach! Great Villas, clean and super great staff, everyone was super helpful. The resort is very well kept and the rooms are super clean with AC full kitchens, they are basically rental condos! Only a short trip into town and 30 from the airport
