The location is just South of Dominical and this was 2 nights of duration. We had a good view from our room and even better view from the pool area. The drive up to the hotel may be difficult in wet weather without a 4 wheel drive car. I only had a 2 wheel drive but it was fine in... More

We had an amazing experience at the villa. Every aspect of villas alturas was excellent. The view from our villa was breathtaking. The staff were always friendly and accommodating. The resort was very well kept and clean. The food in the restaurant was very good. We ate all of our breakfasts and a couple dinners there with no complaints. A... More

This lovely small hotel is located amid lush vegetation high above Dominicalita. We loved the room which was very spacious and had a patio with rocking chairs that overlooked the ocean. We were delighted to be visited by many birds including a Toucan while rocking on our porch. The pool & bar areas are inviting and fun. Everything was very... More

absolutely having a car for the area is recommended, as you mentioned it gives you the freedom to explore and at the end of the day is probably equivalent is cost if you were to take a taxi everywhere! thanks for sharing your thoughts with us, pleased to hear your experience was a good one! More

The 3 of us stayed on different nights in villas 1, 2, and 3. Our main reason for this location was the wildlife sanctuary which we volunteered some... More

Our extended family of 9 stayed for two weeks Jan 2 thru Jan 16 2016 and had a lovely time. We stayed in Villas 1 and 2, both of which were excellent.

Lovely property well situated with stunning ocean and jungle views. We stayed four nights in villa #5. The room was comfortable and had patio area with ocean view, rocking chairs and a hammock in back. Small kitchen with limited utensils, etc, which we did not use. Toucans, Howler and Capuchin Monkeys are part of the outdoor decor. Restaurant was OK... More

If you are looking for a beautiful place near Dominical we can totally recommend this place. This was our third time in Costa Rica but the first time at Villas Alturas and we loved every minute of it. The bungalows are clean, spacious and have a spectacular view. Great food and super nice staff.

The place is great and the view is amazing. Just be careful with the directions because you can get lost pretty easy, but when you arrive to the place you will know that it worth it :) The food at the place is very good and also they can make changes on any of the dishes if you are vegetarian...

We just returned from Villas Alturas after staying there for 6 wonderful nights. It was everything that we hoped it would be, and more. There were 3 of us (myself, my husband and our 13 year old son) staying in a 2 bedroom unit. We were in Villa 1, located right beside the pool. We initially thought being right beside... More
