This was my fourth visit to Villa Dolce. There could not be a more prefect place to stay for your first day in Costa Rica or your last day before heading to the airport. It is 5 minutes from the airport. Jessica our lovely hostess, Randall, and her dad the famous Italian cook were great to see again. This is a very pretty hotel with beautiful grounds and pool. The very small Italian restraurant is excellent. These people do everything they can to make you feel at home. Our last visit we did not get to the hotel until 10pm, Jessica knew we would be hungry and made sure the pizza oven was left on so that we could order something upon our arrival. It is these acts of kindness that make people remember hotels like this and make it a no brainer to stay again and again. This visit on August on 8th was a little different because my whole family stayed here. Everyone had different flights coming in at different times, Jessica and Randall made sure their shuttle was at the airport waiting for everyone to deliver them to Villa Dolce. I think we basically had a hotel takeover. We had a great Yahtzee tournament in the lobby during the most awesome rainstorm ever. Most of us are from Az, so rain is a big thing for us.
This hotel is always the starting point for us during our stays in Costa Rica. Our travels this time to took us up to Playa Hermosa, Guanacaste a four hour drive. Jessica made arrangements for us to make this beautiful trip with her Shuttle driver Pinky. He spoke excellent english and really make this trip wonderful with his knowledge and personality. http://www.pinkystours.com/ We also used him again on our return trip a week later. It is the small things that make a good vacation a great vacation. Jessica you will see us again soon, and thank you for your awesome hospitality.
