I agree with all of the 5 start reviews. We loved Laguna Vista for the amazing views, wildlife, lovely villas, challenging adventures, Matt the manager and Santos the chef. Santos speaks no English, and we speak no Spanish, but somehow he read our minds about what we wanted to eat and drink for every meal. His meals were delicious, varied,... More

What a layout, 2 huge queen size beds and very comfortable. The bathroom is separate and very nicely laid out. A big deck with a super size plunge pool. We had been traveling in costa rica for a few weeks before arriving at the villa, so it was a welcome site to see the room. The restaurant is a little... More

If you wan't to disconnect from everything and have a wonderful, and peaceful time this is the place to go. Matt and Santos (the cook) are very joyful people who attended absolutely every need we had. The views and scenery of this place are fabulous. Nature is everywhere around. The place is completely of the grid... so its difficult to... More

Me and my wife were on honeymoon in december/january and we drove around the country and spent our time in 10 different hotels. On the way home we concluded that LagunaVista in Corcovado was the best resort in so many aspects. I will try to mention a few: - The true paradise experience: When we first booked we thought it...

The location is unique and the view spectacular. LagunaVista Villas is an adequate name for sure. The villas are situated on the hill of a small peninsula of the lagoon. From almost every place of the hotel you have lagoon and also sea view. My respect for building a hotel like this in such a secluded Region! Some villas have... More

It has the potential for the ultimate uncrowded nature paradise but a long way to get there, and also the current price is based on the potential instead of on the reality. Pros: 1. New on site manager is very friendly, helpful and doing his best 2. Location - one of the top places in Costa Rica if you are... More

Regarding the review of MPK9999, I am sorry you did not enjoy your experience at LVV, but certainly wanted to set the record straight. You apparently were expecting a "resort" with speedy internet, phone services, many food choices, and perhaps a little flag that you raise at poolside to order a drink. This is SO not the place for anyone... More

I'm not a regular reviewer but I think places like Laguna Vista deserve it! We stayed there in mid-December, just at the end of rainy season and the start of dry season, for four nights. We had hoped for a nice place to switch off our work-lives and just relax. This place exceeded our expectations. Probably the best thing to... More

The staff are very attentive and take very good care of this resort. The booking on line and email communication was excellent. THE NOT GOOD: No manager present on the property and not... More

We stayed here for seven days in April. We were in Villa 8 which had a fantastic view to the lagoon and coast, was very private, and had its own plunge pool. This place is amazing, with wildlife at every turn. I hardly had time to read as I always had my camera at hand to photograph the wildlife. I... More
