Breakfast was so yummy every morning. Dinner was also amazing. We went fishing and caught a bunch of Mahi Mahi and they cooked it up for us!!!

Great place to watch the sunset and relax after a day of activities. The hot tub like all hot tubs in Costa Rica isn't hot but the beer is cold and the view is great.

Nowhere nicer to have a drink and watch the sunset than in the infinity pool at Vista de Olas, the view is spectacular. There is a really nice atmosphere here, staff are friendly. You chose what you want to eat then BBQ it yourself. Steaks are great.

This is the best place to enjoy drinks, dinner and a sunset. The staff is amazing and owner, Heidi, could not have been more accommodating! Great steaks, fish and salad bar!

this was my second trip to Vista De Olas--and the service and food were as excellent as the first time even though i went during christmas / new years and the place was a lot busier the staff always made me feel like i was the only guest there.

Stopped by for sunset Cocktails. We were greeted by Debbie. She was as warm and friendly as her smile. Drinks were excellent ( I had the frozen Mojito... WOW). Sat next to the pool and cooled our feet as we watched a spectacular sunset view. Wished we could have stayed for dinner, I can only imagine it would be as... More

The dinner was great! Steak was perfectly cooked and the salad bar was great! The view while having dinner was amazing! We also took a swim in the infinity pool after dinner, which was awesome!

If you are looking for an amazing view and an excellent cut of beef (that, yes, you cook yourself), while hanging with awesome host Heidi, this place is for you. If you are scared of a hill and want a cheap piece of meat, stay on the strip down below - there are plenty of options. BOOM!!
