My husband, two sons, and I spent four beautiful nights at Villas Alturas and had a fantastic stay. The view is phenomenal, the staff is super sweet, and the food is amazing. Best meals we had in Costa Rica. The staff loaned us boogie boards and beach towels during our stay. The only downside was that the air conditioning in... More

Amazing views and nice pool and restaurant area. Felt like you were staying at someone's villa. The rooms had 2 bedrooms. 1 bathroom , kitchenette, seating area. Furniture very basic. Only bedrooms air conditioned and 1 room didn't work. Disappointed that they decided to have a conference for about 30 people one day! It's way too small. They were everywhere.... More

We had originally only booked here for two days, since we usually like to move around when we're traveling but once we were there it ended up being so nice that we stayed the entire week. The view is unbelievable. It's like a postcard. The staff were all very nice and made sure that we always had everything we needed.... More

This was my fourth time to Costa Rica and third time to Dominical, and I think it's safe to say that Villas Alturas is some of the best that the Dominical area has to offer.

Villas Alturas is situated on the mountainside overlooking a breathtaking scene of rainforest and the Pacific Ocean. Our villa is one of the nicest accommodations of its kind where we have stayed. The tasteful decor was bright and tropical. Each room was spacious and well-appointed. We especially enjoyed the rancho, equipped with rocking chairs, a small dining set and a... More

This small hotel felt like we had our own private villa. There were not many other guests during our visit but the grounds felt rich and oh so comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious and we wished we had taken more advantage of their in house cook as the local restaurant choices were sparse. We were constantly surrounded by beautiful birds,... More
