My SO and I recently spent at week at Waterfall VIllas, and it was pure magic. I don't even know where to begin because everything was so amazing. There was a little mix-up about our pick up from the airport, so we were a little stressed on the way there, but as soon as we arrived at the retreat, pretty... More

Waterfall Villas was an absolutely amazing place to stay in Dominical. My husband and I, coming from the SF Bay Area, knew we wanted to stay in a tropical, jungle-y place in Costa Rica. We definitely got what we wanted! The hotel is an absolutely beautiful Balinese-style property. The rooms have bamboo beds with gorgeous canopies, the shower is an... More

I work in the hotel industry in which I appreciate good service and well designed aesthetics of a hotel stay. This place tops many and the attention to every detail is impressive. First off, your room is located rate by a waterfall where you become absorbed by all the elements (soothing sound from water + Alive jungle + fresh air).... More

I had a wonderful time at the Waterfall Villas. If you love nature and serenity you gonna love this place. I did couple of days of green juicing and felt so rejuvenated. The owners were really nice and made extra effort to book and coordinate for me all the different tours and activities I wanted to do. I really liked... More

I went to this retreat for yoga, meditation, detox, and to have some alone time to decompress. I achieved exactly that. After the first 2 days, I realized how much I needed the retreat because I was having such a hard time dealing with being alone and having me time. Fateh helped me work through my anxiety and truly identify... More

Thank you for writing about how much you enjoyed and liked your introduction to gluten-free vegan experience. I am so happy to hear even in 1 week you were able to loose the unwanted weight. I wish I had time to write a cook book of all these delicious unique meals, but alas, all these recipes I have created over... More

My husband and I recently spent eight wonderful days at Cascadas Farallas/Waterfall Villas. We chose this vacation to enjoy an all vegan menu as well as explore the amazing biodiversity of Costa Rica. We returned home with a renewed commitment to a healthy and eco-friendly lifestyle. The healthy vegan meals were elegant and delicious. The eco-lodge and grounds are beautiful,... More

Thank you for your honest review - I really appreciate it when customers can make suggestions of improvement. I did replace most of the mattress early this year. Thanks to your comment I will replace the remaining asap, and all our future guests can enjoy them thanks to your helpful comments. More

This was one of the most beautiful places we've ever stayed. The decor is all hand made from Indonesia, and the grounds are absolutely gorgeous. It's in the middle of the rainforest right next to a waterfall. You can always hear the waterfalls anytime during the day or night, which is super peaceful, especially while sleeping. Also, the sounds of... More

It really saddens me to write this review, but I want to be honest and prevent anyone else from having the same situation that my husband and I had… We were supposed to leave Costa Rica tonight, we went home early. We have been home sense yesterday. This is going to be a long review, but I want to make... More

A clinically diagnosed phobia to insects must be considered before one travels to the most biologically diverse tropics. 6 ants were found in your spotless room - only then, you made me aware of your diagnosis. Although there are almost no mosquitos at the Waterfall Villas, ants do march on full and new moons, looking for a new home, and... More

My husband and I celebrated a milestone birthday at Cascadas Farallas. We chose Cascadas because, as a vegan with food intolerances, it is often difficult for me to find food on vacation. Cascadas Farallas was the perfect solution for us. We purchased the full meal plan and Fateh customized our meals to accommodate my intolerances. Every meal was outstanding and... More

I have been to Costa Rica three times in the past five years and every time Waterfall Villas has been my first stop. This last trip, I drove my personal vehicle from upstate New York to Costa Rica. After 16 days and 6,700 plus miles I knew that I had to find the most serene place I could to recuperate.... More
