We had an amazing stay at Villas Kalimbas for 3 weeks! It was perfect for our family! We have a 5 year old and a 3 year old and between the 6 villas there was a constant flow of families with kids that our kids could play with. I would definitely recommend Kalimbas for a family vacation. While it's not... More

We stayed at Villa Sandy, (6 Adults), lots of room. Good location, great house with own pool. Staff exceptional around the house and at the hotel. We saw crocs in the local river, took a gyrocoptor ride, paddle surfed and explored all the beautiful beaches close by, Playa Barrigona was my favourite! Also great to watch the sunset, sipping a...

We stayed for 6 nights just last week and loved it. Diego was great and very helpful with everything from making our reservation to extending our stay. In fact all the staff were friendly and nice but that just seems to be the way in Costa Rica. I heard the food Roberto cooks was also amazing although we did not... More

Roberto and Diego were perfect hosts. As the Villa we had requested was not available , they notified us of an upgrade to another Villa at no extra cost. Villa Sandy was perfect, though larger than we needed with 3 bedrooms. The private pool was sparkling clean, thanks to Marco, the friendly and helpful staff on the property. You do... More

We loved this place and the people. In early Feb/14 our family stayed in Kamar and some family/friends stayed in a couple of the Kalimba villas for our daughters wedding that took place on Carillo beach. It was perfect for our group. Kamar was private, but yet very spacious, we had our own pool, each bedroom was beautiful with their... More

Wonderful stay at Villa Bruga. The villa is gorgeous and spacious. Perfect for our family of four. Lovely small private pool that was great for cooling off after a day at the beach. Also had a beautiful meal prepared by Roberto one evening--shouldn't be missed. Villa Bruga is a bit further from the beach than the Kalimba Villas---15 minute walk... More

This is a great trip and enjoyed a lovely vacation located on Samara Beach for 7 nights. I loved the Villa. It was comfortable and spacious. We stayed in the one bedroom and it had air conditioning for sleeping which is great. I also was able to view the 2 bedroom villa as well which has a 2nd bedroom with... More

My family & I spent 6 glorious nights at Casa Bruga (house rented from Villas Kalimba) The caretaker Mario made sure nothing was lacking. He was very attentive and kind. The house was perfectly suited for our needs, and YES the pool was a wonderful respite after a long day of HOT glorious sun. Thank you for making our stay... More

Just returned from a stay at El Gauchito (the house rented from Villas Kalimba). The grounds and house do not make a good first impression. The bed linens were old and faded looking. There were weeds near the pool. The house was boiling upon arrival. There is only air conditioning in the bedrooms. My general feeling was that the whole... More
