I had a very nice stay at Villa Jacaranda in May of this year. Even though staying closer to the center of Escazu has its benefits (which I've experienced on previous trips), I definitely preferred the experience of being closer to nature here. The unit had its own private patio, a small kitchenette, shower with hot water, space heater (for... More

Best views in San Jose. We stayed at this place for a week and was a great escape from the hot beach climate. Owners were very helpful and are available to answer any questions you may have. There is a security guard 24/7. Great quiet place up the hills but also a very short drive to Escazu. Would definitely stay... More

Everyone at Villa Le Mas were nice, from the owners, workers who maintain the property, to the security guards. There are three large dogs that reside on the property, so that is an added benefit for dog-lovers. No cats were on the premises. The grounds resembled an idyllic tropical land and was always maintained well. During my stay, it was... More

My week long stay at Villa Le Mas was the perfect way to spend time in the San Jose area. It is quiet hillside retreat with amazing views and gorgeous landscaping while being just blocks from plenty of amenities and a short drive to modern amenities such as Starbucks.

This spacious studio has amazing views of the mountains right out side the tall floor-to-ceiling glass walls on three sides of the room. I was first concerned that the living room/seating area would be crowded, but I was pleasantly surprised. The king size bed takes up only about 20% of the large living area. There's a full bath and small... More

To start our trip in Costa Rica, we rented for a week, a studio near San Jose. We wanted to be near the city without undergoing noise and other inconveniences. We found a gem! Hidden in the hills of Escazu, in a very upscale area, near the cloud forest, the studio 4, elegant and original, offers breathtaking views of the... More

I stayed there 2 nights in 2011 while getting dental work. There were ants in my room. Food was not good. There are no restaurants nearby. TV was small & all programs were in Spanish. My bed was sagging on one side and management "didn't see the problem." I called a cab after 2 days & went somewhere else. I've... More

We are sorry that this person had a bad experience in 2011 under former management and ownership when the property was a recovery facility for cosmetic surgery patients. We purchased the property in 2013 and we have been renting the 9 apartments scattered in a garden setting on both a long and short-term basis. All of our guests have been... More

I can't say enough about how wonderful Villa Le Mas is. I stayed with them for 14 days and was waited on hand and foot. The massage the night before my surgery was fantastic. Petra made sure every little detail was attended to. The nurse came every morning to not only change garments and bandages but she checked vitals and... More

I traveled alone to Costa Rica for the 2nd time to have 5 plastic surgery procedures in June 2012. I was concerned about my post-op care so I chose to stay at Villa Le Mas after reading the reviews and getting advise from my Surgery Agent Nora. I could not have been happier with the results.
