Our family is now on our 4th trip to Costa Rica with 3 trips at Villa Cascada and once at Villa Ocotal! We will always go back, and hope to live there in the future. The people of Costa Rica are so humble and the staff at the Villas have such a servant's heart. Breakfast has not been the same... More

Most magical wedding ever. The venue, food, staff, location could not be better. I would recommend the Villa Cascada to anyone. There were 33 of us. Everyone had a great time. This is the right place for family and friends. The pool is fantastic. The food is unbelievable. Costa Rica is a great county with warm inviting people that smile... More

Wonderful vacation. Upon arrival to the moment you leave you feel like you have stepped into a fairy tale. We stayed for a week along w/ 3 other families, so 8 adults and 7 kids ranging from 2-16. Meals 3 times a day and snacks between that were all delicious. Fresh pineapple, mango, kiwi, watermelon & avocado at your fingertips.... More

We just had a perfect trip to Villa Ocotal! Staff is very helpful, so pleasant to be with and not a big deal we didn't speak Spanish. They were very accommodating. Food is very good, property is well maintained and lots of room for everyone. We have a 2 year old and it was great for small children. This was... More

This was our second visit to Villa Ocotal. If that doesn't say it all, then let me say that we are already planning a third trip. This is the definition of a vacation. The staff is so kind and attentive; they work very hard to make sure that relaxation is your only worry for the entire week, your only decision... More

I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed our trip. It was total relaxation for us which is exactly what we needed. Our friends are literally still talking about it (so are we) and it has now been 4 months! She said it was her 3rd best vacation ever and she has been just about all around the world. She... More

This was the most incredible trip I've ever been on. The unit (La Paz) was clean, comfortable, had many amenities, and the staff were extremely attentive. I highly recommend this villa and I would go back in a heartbeat!

I had my wedding at Villa Cascada in April, 2014 and I simply cannot say enough good things about it. The pictures honestly do not accurately show how incredible Villa Cascada is. The whole setup of the place is incredible; the pool is right beside the eating/bar area so people can all be together the entire time. There is an... More

Amazing place and wonderful people. Attended a family members wedding here and they did a fantastic job. We could not have asked for a better experience. The website pictures don't do this place justice! Great facility for all ages also.

This is a wonderful place for rest and relaxation. It's secluded yet just a short walk to the black sand beaches and just 3 kilometers from the town of Coco where there is shopping, a selection of bars, and entertainment. All yours needs are taken care of at the Villa. A clean pool, large private hot tub with a view,... More
