My family of 4 (me, my husband, and my 1 and 2.5 year old) are traveling to Costa Rica for a wedding in February. My husband's parents and brother and sister will also be coming. I am trying to figure out what the best situation for our accommodations will be. A villa, or a hotel? If we stayed in a villa, we would need 6 bedrooms. If we stay in a hotel, we'd need some kind of suite with 2-3 bedrooms for us (my kids don't sleep well in the same room as each other or with us), plus rooms for the other adults.
I'm wondering if we're better off staying in a larger, more family friendly hotel (like a Hilton or a Marriott) and traveling to the wedding location just for that day. If we do that, which large hotel is closest to Nosara?
I should also mention that we will be in Costa Rica for 7 days.
We have also received recommendations for L'acqua Viva Hotel and Giardino Tropicale. What are your opinions on these?
The villa setup we have received a recommendation for is this new construction villa: salagnacarquitectos.com/site/ONGOING_PROJECT…
with the Sacred Spaces villa across the street for my husband's parents and sister and brother.
Help!! We have been researching and going in circles for months now, and it's getting down to the wire. We need to choose something family friendly and fun!
Thanks in advance!
