I can't begin to explain the amazing experience we all had at Villa Cascada! 28 people in total including a 5 year old all had the best time!!! The food, staff, weather, villa, and experience was amazing and extremely easy to plan. We had our wedding on the nearby beach which was absolutely incredible. The views were beautiful which made...

We all wanted to take this time to thank the owners and staff from the bottom of our hearts for helping us to create wonderful memories of our wedding/vacation that will last a lifetime! The Villa, the whole staff, delicious and abundance food, and of course great drinks were so awesome. Everything was taken care of perfectly from booking excursions,... More

The staff members are amazing. Their level of professionalism, care, and high levels of customer service were amazing and impressive. Everyone we came in contact with - Gabriel our bartender, Elba and Lidia our chefs, the cleaning staff, the maintenance staff, Guillermo - they each take so much pride in their work and nothing was overlooked. We were treated like... More

We stayed at Villa Cascada in January 2015. The villa is well laid out with a large deck, games area, workout centre, pool, hot tub and cool pool. Food and drink service was excellent! The rooms were spacious but a little dated. The bathrooms could use a facelift. The location is good, only a five minute walk from the beach... More

The hardest part of writing this review is running out of positive phrases to describe it! The staff could not have been better, the food was very good, the villa was always immaculate, and weather was perfect!! If you don’t have one of the most memorable vacations ever at this villa, you must be doing something wrong. I highly recommend... More

We have been traveling for the last 10 years to a warm destination and VilIa Ocotal is hands down our best vacation every. We have traveled to both all inclusive and VRBOs. There were 16 people from ages 12-57 in our group. Some of us enjoy relaxing and the others enjoy a active vacation. This vacation met everyone's needs. From... More

We just returned from a vacation at both Villa Cascada and Villa Ocotal and I cannot recommend them enough. I don't think any of us ever want to vacation in the traditional manner again as the staff took care of everything and all we had to do was relax and have fun. The manager, Guillermo, is personality plus and his... More

Suffice it to say you'll never want to leave! The Villa, the staff, the beauty of the area, the food (Gallo Pinto ... I need more), the black sand beach with clear, warm water, the adventures they arrange at your request.... Villa Cascada hosts one group at a time, family-friends-business, whatever, with no outsiders allowed in. Privacy and security are... More
