We stumbled upon this place one day while out exploring Costa Rica and are glad we did. The animal sanctuary is doing great things and the tour is super informative and feels like a private tour. The hotel team was nice enough to let us enjoy drinks by the pool on two occasions during our 10 day stay in the... More

We had a great stay at the Villas Alturas. We were lucky enough to get their last room which was spotless, huge and had all the amenities. The view is spectacular and the food/drinks were above and beyond delicious. The staff were so helpful and sweet. Not to mention the animal sanctuary! We were able to see a tiny sloth... More

A spectacular location with a stunning ocean view. Nice apt and excellent service. The apt is spacing and clean. The bed is comfortable. We are very satisfied about this property. Wish we can come back someday soon.

This is a good spot for families as the views are amazing, the villas are separate enough to give a sense of privacy and they have a nice little pool. Breakfast is decent and there is a cool nature preserve behind the place. The workers take pride in their workplace and they seem to have a good dynamic with the... More

We just got back from Villas Alturas a week ago. Tom, Nikki, Marlin and Victor were great to talk with and were very accommodating. Mike at the Wildlife Sanctuary couldn't have been any nicer and is an excellent voice for Wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and release in Costa Rica. The wildlife in this country is incredible and we applaud the efforts... More

We stayed for three nights. Nikki, the manager was accommodating and helpful. Clean, spacious casitas with a full kitchen and a world class view. In the late afternoon we could view and photograph cinnamon beaked Toucan who paid visits the the nearby trees. In all a nice, inviting place to stay.

We can't say enough about Villas Alturas. We stayed in 3 very different type places and locations in Costa Rica. This, by far, was our favorite. One that we're definitely planning on going back to. The staff, the view, the food, the villa (very comfy bed and wonderful veranda) were second to none. I agree with George Z. 5 Stars,... More

It was our first time staying at Villas Alturas and I can't say enough good things about the hotel and the staff. First off, the view by the pool is out of this world. Upon arrival we were greeted by Marlon (staff member) with an ice cold coconut drink and stood in awe by the gorgeous view of the southern... More

We stayed at the hotel for 6 nights and wished it could have been for our entire stay on the Pacific coast. It may have been the best experience I have had in Costa Rica. The views were amazing, the road in was the best of any I have experienced and the food and staff were wonderful. Hats off to... More

We had only booked for two nights and how I wished we had been able to stay longer. We arrived After spending a week in Cabo Matapalo. I knew the view of the ocean was good from the website but when we walked in and saw it first hand I was amazed. We were needing some creature comforts after being... More
