This was one of my favorite places to stay during our trip through the osa peninsula. We hung out by the pool and watched the whales swim by from the deck and then went up to the bar and watched the monkeys come in for the bananas. villa alturas is located right between dominical and uvita so you're just a...

This is a small hotel with large apartments and bungalows. Ours had a substantial and fully equipped kitchen, two bedrooms, a large living area and private terrace. Two couples or a family could stay in our apartment in complete comfort and privacy, this makes it great value for money. The views are spectacular. Food was simple but good. You may... More

What a find. I would come back to Costa Rica for Villas Alturas alone. The rooms/suites are terrific, the view is to die for, and the management was wonderful. Compared to other hotels that we found disappointing, this one was a gem.

We stayed at Villas Alturas for 3 nights during January 2015. We were stranded the night before our stay, and luckily they were able to accommodate us a night early. The villas are modern and clean, with beautiful linens and towels. The owners are super friendly and helpful. They can lend you towels, boogie boards and surf boards for the... More

My husband and I ended our trip to Costa Rica here and how we wished we had found this first! My husband doesn't understand the importance of reasearching reviews so we first stayed in a very substandard place in Monte Verde. Next we drove to Quepo and stayed in the Cascades which was overpriced and not very nice. Finally we... More

This was an amazing property amidst the rain forest and overlooking the ocean. The villas were incredible and so was the food! We felt so lucky to have found the special gem in the most beautiful part of Costa Rica.

The view from the pool terrace is as good as it looks. Friendly and service minded staff and nice restaurant. Very nice villas with lovely view from the porch. Only draw back was that the refrigerator didn't work properly.

We had the pleasure of staying here on January 6th, 2015. We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa. The view from our balcony gave me chills, simply beautiful. The villa was well equipped, and very clean.
