“Excellent choice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2006

As a group of 4 women, mid-20's, non-spanish speaking... we had a AMAZING stay at Villas Del Caribe. After many internet searches, we opted for this one. The website does not do the property justice. We stayed in a double unit, room #1 ( request that one-- easy access to front desk, restaurant, and walkway to beach.) The staff was extremely helpful, the villa was very clean, and the view was great. We also felt very safe.
While the property is not situated directly on the beach, the lanscaping between the ocean and the room makes for a fabulous view. Our room was two -level, 2 BR, 2 BA at about $450 for the week.... we would expect to pay close to $1000 for the same room-type for a week in the states.

For adventure, I highly reccomend Outdoor Adventure whitewater rafting tour. ( They wil aslo transfer you back to San Jose, if needed, so you may want to schedule a tour on your check-out day, and use the transfer to your advantage.) For dining, Standford's Restaurant in Puerto Viejo is great. Perto Viejo is not far by bike or foot. Try Pure Jungel Day Spa, for an amazing jungle massage while you are there.

Enjoy!!

I stayed at Villas del Caribe for four nights in early September, and I loved it! Travellers should know, however, that the hotel is undergoing renovation, so that many of the rooms are closed. (I was the only guest while I was there.) The villas have french doors on the first and second levels; all the rooms look out onto beautiful gardens and the beach. In front of the hotel are coral reefs and tidepools, but directly to one side is a lovely crescent beach with relatively calm water. There is a path a bit back from the beachfront that seems to go for miles in both directions. The villas are decorated with bright colors and nice artwork and have both hammocks and chairs that you use on the balcony. The bike ride into Puerto Viejo is about fifteen minutes, but there's a small store across the road from the villas that sells fruits, vegetables, milk, etc; and there's a French bakery /deli just down the street. The staff is well informed. friendly, and helpful. All in all, this place far outweighed my expectations. I would love to go back.

My wife and I just returned from a 3 night stay in Puerto Veijo. We stayed at Villas del Caribe and it was a nice, clean, functional property with a great location (right on the beach). The villa was 2 bedroom with a full kitchen and patio on the lower level and 2 bedrooms up above. Daily rate = $69 US. I would stay here again and would recommend it to others. You get more than what you pay for. This was our 1st trip to Central Americal and it took me a little while to adjust to no AC, but the locale is just awesome. Beautiful beaches and no stress. And....there are very nice restaurants close by - Black Horse (Italian); Magic Ginger (French); and Maxi's down in Manzanillo (traditional fare).

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Life is at its tranquil best at Villas del Caribe. The days go something like this: You wake to the sound of bird songs and a view from your bed of silvery palms and clear blue sea. You throw open the sliding doors and take to the hammock on the balcony for a little rest, refreshed by the ocean breeze. You may now be ready to take a dip in our swimming pool and enjoy the elevated thatched Jacuzzi for a relaxing massage.Once the lure of the sea becomes too much, you wander through the landscaped gardens onto the beach path, where you face a decision between the long, deserted golden sand beach to the left or the many pristine golden sand beaches to the right.You settle for one of the shallow, sandy natural lagoons formed by the coral reef right offshore, and watch tropical fish wiggle past your toes.After a fresh water shower on your terrace, you walk over to the SeaSide Restaurant for breakfast or a snack, then you take a bike and cycle down the flat paved road past fields, forest, a few thatched bars and restaurants to Puerto Viejo for coffee or a drink, the local gossip, and some good, fresh fish at the beachfront store.You spend the afternoon alternating between the beach and the sea, the loungers on the terrace, and the hammocks on the balcony. ... more   less
