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

I am a biologist and photographer looking for comfortable and exciting destinations in the jungle around the world. This one is one of the best I ever seen, so clean, ecologic, surrounded by a lush naure and full of animals. Food is great, and the pool is a dream!

I just spent a week at beautiful Mareas Vilas, hosting a yoga and health retreat there. The location was perfection – serene, stunning, private, lush and luxurious. Mareas features views and vistas that are unmatched in beauty, and luxurious amenities that allow for complete pampering. There are a variety of beautiful spaces on the property to use for yoga classes,... More

I visited Mareas from Feb 22-Mar 1 as part of a whole health luxe retreat with Samana Health Retreats. Mareas was the perfect place to escape the world, do yoga, meditate, detox, relax and soak in the beauty of the jungle. It is a trek to get there from San Jose, but worth it once you are there!

Mareas Villas in Costa Rica is the embodiment of luxurious comfort and an impressive destination befitting royal tastes and standards.

Our stay at Mareas was a 5 day getaway with a close friend and hands down we enjoyed the golden hour (sunset) by the pool the most. As the sun went down we relaxed by the pool each day and listened to the chatter of the birds, cocktail in hand. The waterfall feature and spa were our favourite luxury items... More

Please read this.... I wish I had before I rented Mareas. First of all, the house is amazing. You can't ask for anything more when renting a luxury villa. Especially one that is nested high above the rain forest and offers the views that Mareas does. Please keep this in mind as you continue reading. That being said, here's the... More

Mareas has, as all private villas do, a rental agreement. The agreement is very specific and was signed by someone other than this reviewer. This group booked through an agency and had no direct contact with us prior to arrival, however was well informed via the agreement. The agreement clearly states that no illicit behavior or illegal activity is permitted.... More
