Stayed here for 5 nights and were not disappointed! Beautiful villa with views over the jungle to the ocean. We saw more wildlife in the area around the villa than we did on a trip to the National Park. Lots of different birds, butterflies and monkeys. Walking down the road close to the Villas one afternoon we saw a Sloth... More

Wow! What an amazing place. You get a personal villa with a stunning view of the Pacific Ocean. We got the honeymoon package and slightly negotiated the price- this was an outstanding deal: couples massage, lovely dinner and a bottle of bubbly wine. Importantly, no car is needed here. Taxis are $7 to town. Booked a few tours-and they picked... More

TikiVillas has indeed a very nice view of the ocean. The infinity pool was perfect, but do not expect a large pool. The unpaved driveway is quite steep, they would recommend a 4wd - however we did it without a 4wd. The hotel is very personal, with currently 5 villas and another 5 being build. Villas are perfect for two,... More

Nothing quite prepared us (My wife and I) for the sheer magnificence of this place.
