We enjoyed our stay very much due to the service of the staff at the Vista Villas. The hotel is dated but definitely well kept and clean. But, I have never had more pleasant service. Our booking agent, Ellen was prompt and polite with our requests. We were able to get into our room as soon as we arrived. Our housekeeper, Jessie, should be given a gold medal!!! And the restaurant/bar staff Trevor, Alexa and Eva were always smiling and very helpful. Thanks to Floribeth and Gilberth for help with check in and check out. It is a solid hotel to stay in if you visit Tamarindo and the view from the pool deck is breathtaking!!!
