This was our last stop in C.R. of 4 different geographical area - from N. Caribbean to Arenal, Monteverde to M.A. over 2 weeks. This was both my favorite area and the best place we stayed on the trip. The rooms were just beautiful - full kitchens, living room, adequate bath (low water pressure) and ocean views off the patio (also large, with table chairs and hammock). The only ding on our particular room was it was open from the living room area to the bedroom. Would have been nice to close it off (like a true suite). Staff very friendly and helpful. I would absolutely recommend Villas Nicolas in all respects.
