Avoid Renting from Vacation Villas of Costa Rica

Avoid renting a house from this company. Their property manager is rude, unprofessional and less than truthful. If Alex Rivera is the property manager avoid this company at all costs.

23. Re: Avoid Renting from Vacation Villas of Costa Rica

We have just returned from MA having rented a vacation villa from Alex and his company (we were aware of the contents of this thread before we left and we were alert to that..)

Firstly to anyone booked or wishing to can I reassure you that we had a fantastic time and that we found Alex etc a very good company and everything ran smoothly with him. MA is heavenly, the Tico's are very friendly and the weather we were lucky with.

Alex prebooked trips for us that were good value and well organised. I could go into detail but simply put i would say DISREGARD THE TITLE TO THIS THREAD!..It sounds like the person who began this thread had an issue - these things happen sadly and that the use of the 'G' word by Alex in my opinion is fair and proportionate given the damage that such a thread can cause his livlihood.

We only met Alex on holiday and travelled from the UK slightly nervous that we were heading for grief - this could have not be farther from the truth. Thank you vacation Villa's and Alex. I recommend this company

Nice, I use trip advisor to comment on places I HAVE visited, my experiences, you have never visited the location discussed nor met the individual concerned - i have....instead you choose to rather shallowly make troll like comments based on an off the cuff remark by someone upset at being ridiculed on this site...now you call me unpleasant!..you've travelled a lot? Next time you are in the UK Jules Verne I gladly meet you to discuss.
