“Amazing View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

I love this place and have been to #15 Many many times in the last 3 years. Can I start off with most of the things in the villa have been updated! The view is amazing and the hammocks are straight from Brazil... So comfortable. I love looking at the ocean and all the monkeys! The villa is perfect walking distance to a grocery store, many wonderful eats, the beach and even a casino. The peacefulness that u feel when walking in here is amazing. The pool and cool tub.... Wonderful and always clean. The villa provides beach towels and has a maid that comes daily. All the sloths, birds and monkeys just to name a few are seen daily off the porch! This is everything you need..

Room Tip: choose #15... its the best!! AC farther away from the street!!

Based on the photo, we thought we were to stay in a reasonably nice place. BUT.....the hotel is located between two loud busy streets with traffic and people passing at all hours. The room smelled like it had been closed for months with that damp, suffocating scent. We could not stay even one night.....moving to Villas Nicholas just down the street. We were so happy with our decision. There is a restaurant casino just above the El Parque adding to the level of noise. In general,it was difficult to find anyone to help us.....the reception was never there.

Room Tip: Stay at Villas Nicholas

Spent an amazing 6 days at this villa. The views are breathtaking, The place is clean, spacious, and has all the toys you would want. A/C, blender, music, BLENDER LOL, Clean linens and towels daily, An awesome balcony over looking the ocean with the most comfortable hammock I've ever been in. OK, so maybe all hammocks are the same, but in this one, with a cigar and scotch after a day on the beach, a FANTASTIC meal at Ronnie's Place, there is nothing better.
I mentioned Ronnie's Place, great restaraunt, up an old dirt road with the MOST AMAZING SUNSETS known to man... Just ask how to get there... Can't wait to return and have already booked for next March....

PURE VIDA!!!!!

I rented a condo from private owners and should note that the units here are all owned individually. I stayed in a fabulous villa with an amazing ocean view and gorgeous high ceilings. It was the perfect, most awesome place imaginable.

I had a great kitchen, and the outdoor balcony also had a breakfast table and a hammock where I spent a lot of time chilling.

The poolside cafe is also great and the staff are super nice. Breakfast and lunch are very affordable.

Truly, you can't beat the location. It's right along the main road... only a short walk to Besanz (sp?) beach, which is a great swimming hole and a place where lots of locals bring their families. It's also walking distance to some great restaurants and the grocery store. The bus comes along nearby and will get you to the park and the main beach in five minutes.

I had NO bugs in my room and I was here for nearly three weeks. It was spotless and in great condition. The owners of this particular unit have obviously put a lot of work into making it a great place to visit.

I really loved my stay. It was perfect.

Room Tip: Know that each unit is owned separately.

One could pay 5 x more for this view! The rooms are large and comfortable. The restaurant next door is excellent! Excellent location.

Our room was number 5 where we had a fantastic view. The accommodation was comfortable, clean, spacious and well equipped. The balcony was a real bonus although the close proximity of the adjacent resturant did disturb the special ambience when it was busy. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. Swimming in the pool surrounded by monkeys and a sloth in an over hanging tree made this experience one we shall never forget. There are regular buses both up and down the hill making this an ideal place to stay for easy access to the National Park and other attractions.

We were greeted by a man named David.. We stayed in Villa # 15.. He was so pleasant and friendly. We were so amazed by the view but then we saw the villa... it was so amazing our breath was taken away.The house keeper did such a great job! There was a bottle of wine in the fridge for us. We had everything we ever needed... even a bag of local coffee to take home with us. This villa is more than worth the money!! The pool and the animals are out of this world!!! We can not wait to go back!!

Room Tip: We stayed in Upper and lower # 15 in Villas el Parque!!! www.costaricabeachvila.com
