We all loved to stay in Villas Cascada and will definitely love to go back!! The staff was very accommodating and friendly. The property is beautiful and we loved the villa life-style vs. Resort. The food was very good and weather was perfect. Words cannot express how much we enjoyed our vacations. We did take the Mega tour, Palo Verde... More

This was the very, very best vacation! The staff was very friendly & welcoming, the food was amazing, and the villa is absolutely beautiful. I really appreciated the attention to detail, from daily laundry services to the delicious mid-afternoon snacks. There are tons of activities to do while hanging around the villa, and the beach is just a quick walk... More

Villa Cascada is the perfect place for a large family vacation. Our multi-generational family declared this the perfect vacation. Everyone liked their room, their balcony and their views. This is an all-inclusive rental that pleased my family of trained chefs (2) good cooks (5) and particular eaters (12). We did have lunch away from the villa if we were on... More

My husband and I planned a vacation to Costa Rica with friends following a week of language classes. I had been to an all-inclusive resort before, but Barefoot Vacation Villas exceeded every expectation! I expected to have privacy while in the room but to perhaps share the pool or dining facilities. Not so. Each villa has it's own pool, dining... More

We had an extended family of 13 on the trip, and everyone got to do what they wanted. We had plenty of help from the staff and excursion providers in getting our adventure loving but wheelchair-bound family member in and out of multiple vehicles and four boats! We rented a golf cart for the week which worked out well to... More

What a special place. Villa Cascada was a fabulous place for our family to visit, unwind and celebrate many lifetime events; a 43 wedding anniversary, an engagement and a marriage proposal, not to mention just the celebration of being together. The all inclusive property was comfortable, the food was fantastic and the bartending was excellent. One night we even had... More

Vacationing with 6 other couples at Barefoot Vacation Villas - Cascada was one of the most exhilarating and money well spent vacations my husband and I have taken in a long time. The professionalism of the staff was spot on. The American and Costa Rican dishes prepared by Ms. Elba and Ms. Lidia were absolutely amazing and plentiful. The bar... More

We initially started planning our Holiday with Pam and had nothing but exceptional customer service; she was so prompt at responding to any questions or concerns we had and made sure everything was taken care of before we arrived. Upon arrival we were in awe of the beautiful accommodations; private rooms and on suites as well as a beautiful deck... More
