Beautiful beach. There is so much room to surf, swim, and drink a beer. The accommodation where awesome, hammock in the room, clean, nice showers. They have a great property, hiking right out the back door. Don't forget to bring a head lamp. The food was some of the best in the area and the beer was cold. The other... More

Everything was great! Our room, the beach, the restaurants around... It's not very cheap but it's worth it. The only thing I have to say is that you must have your own car to get there, even to go to your room because they are far from the reception and it is not an easy road to go walking.

They offer a wide range of accommodations, from basic (shared dorm room with shared bathroom), to high end (beautiful houses with stunning views, a/c, kitchen), for every budget and taste. Be sure to ask what you are reserving so that you can make the best choice for your needs. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The place is a... More

The restaurant serves really good food! We left 1 day earlier becauase of an party till 4:00 AM. Very noisy!!! We didn't knew it and... More

Only planned to stay one night, but extended our stay because this place was so wonderful. Met the owner on the bus, and he ended up giving us a ride to the hostel. Young international staff. The food is incredible, and I highly recommend staying in one of the cabanas in the forest. Outdoor shower was wonderful, and a quick... More

Our stay at Eco Venao was average. The good things I can mention about the place is that our house, La Casona, was very spacious. It has three bedrooms and enough beds for up to eight persons. There were enough bathrooms, two full and another one without shower. The cons about the place, specifically about La Casona was that the... More

Yesterday I had the best facial ever in my face and I am still thinking about it. It was given by Jade, who has just opened an excellent spa at EcoVenao, together with her husband, Derek, who gave a great massage to my wife. Jade is a brilliant professional, having studied beauty treatment in North Carolina. She used a combination... More

Hi Pytagua, Thanks so much for your comments. Jade and Derek are working really hard on the new Nourish Spa inside Eco Venao. It`s very important to us hear that they are offering a good service. Thanks again, and we hope you'll choose Eco Venao the next time you're in the area. Best regards, Eco Venao More

The dormitory is beautiful, the guests are chill, the area is very nice for surfing and hiking and lots of other stuff. The staff is relaxed, friendly and beautiful. Besides a communal kitchen and places to chill in hammocks, play tabletennis and more, they have a nice restaurant/bar, with parties once a weak, as well as a movie night. It... More

Eco Venao is a unique place. What I like most is the fact that the property although it extends down to the beach there are no buildings close to it... preserving the coastal setting. I am sad to see what is happening further down the beach (blue venao, selinas, private houses etc..) Developments that have had no respect for the... More

I spent around 12 days in Eco Venao and I have no regrets! If you want to spend your holiday in connection with nature is definitively the right place to go. I woke up every day hearing the ocean, surrounded by the wildlife. You can have a walk in the wide property of Evo Venao or on the 5km wide... More
