Our family of 16, ages ranging from 82 to 4, enjoyed a week at Mareas Villas the first week of August 2014. It is truly a magnificent spot in the rainforest set way up on a hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Tim and Pilar, the owners, who live on site and have two friendly dogs, were very welcoming and helpful.... More

As you walk through the front doors of this beautiful property you're treated to a breath-taking view across the infinity pool, over the jungle and out to the Pacific Ocean, with what I am sure are the Marquesas Islands far, far away out of sight, in the distance. It is truly a breathtaking view. I could feel the stress pour... More

I doubt that anyone could describe Mareas as well as you have. I also doubt that anyone has taken advantage of it's tranquility as much as you did. The week with you was one of my life's treasures. Thank you for coming! More

Mareas Villas is a very special place. The owners, Tim (also the chef) and his wife Pillar (who designed the place) are excellent, gracious hosts that know all about the area. This includes the birds, monkeys, flowers, and a lemur that we never saw. Pillar swore he was there but he didn't show up during my week stay. It is... More

Where to start! Mareas Villas is an absolutely magical and amazing home away from home. My stay at Mareas Villas was the perfect balance of relaxation and adventure. I traveled to Costa Rica with six of my friends. We planned to stay at Mareas for three nights, and then drive to Jaco and stay the rest of the week. When... More

I have traveled all around the world and I can tell you that my time spent at Mareas Villas was one of the best vacations I have ever had. The property is literally in the jungle, only steps away from wildlife and 7 different (yes 7) waterfalls. We had 9 different private villas to choose from and an infinity pool!... More

Pure heaven. I recently stayed at Mareas Villas and it is absolutely stunning including the hosts Tim and Pillar. The rooms/suites are large, comfortable with elegant bathrooms and creatively appointed. The pool, ah I wish that I was still floating in it watching the gorgeous sunset as it is 1700 square feet of bliss. Everything that you could ask for... More
