We spent 3 nights at Villas Alturas in room #5 and enjoyed our stay from beginning to end. We were glad to have rented a 4x4 SUV to climb the mountain to our hotel overnight! We received a welcome drink at check in and although we weren't the closest room, it was nice and quiet away from the pool and... More

The view is definitely every bit as good as what is shown on the website. It's incredible. Stayed in Room #3 which to me seemed the most private with the best dead-ahead, 180-degree view of the Pacific. Would recommend 4 wheel drive for the ascent. Visit their wildlife rescue center too - enjoyed the parrots, monkeys, coatimundi, etc. About the... More

Our family of four stayed for the week and we can not say enough about this hotel and the amazing customer service. The views were breathtaking, pictures really do not do it justice. To wake up each morning and overlook the Pacific with the sound of the ocean and toucans flying nearby is a memory we will cherish. In the... More

My wife and I stayed here with our two small children during March 2015 for 3 nights. We could not have enjoyed it more. Initially we felt like our two daugthers (5 and 2) might be ruining the tranquility of the place a bit --- perhaps they did -- but the staff certainly never made us feel that way. Everyone... More

We stayed in a 2bedroom villa and it was perfect for us. AC in the bedrooms, fans throughout kept it comfortable in the heat. The view from our balcony was choice and from the pool deck was breathtaking! Staff were nice and very helpful. We are pretty much DIY travelers and their laid back response to us was great. The...

I have traveled all over the world and this place was the most amazing accommodations and view I have ever seen. The staff is very friendly and helpful. You can hear the monkeys in the nearby forest. It's a peaceful piece of heaven.
