“recent Villas de Oros experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

This "hotel" is really so very charming. It is small and the people who own/manage the property are very, very welcoming and helpful in every manner. The location is easy to find, just off of a main road. But is is still very quiet. The beach nearby is within walking distance although driving is also very easy. It is nearly untouched and gorgeous. The accommodations are simple, clean, and comfortable. They are not elaborate but for us, perfect. And the price for the accommodation is extremely reasonable. My only regret is that we didn't have a lot of time to stay in the area and get to enjoy the so many offerings it presents! Enjoy!

Room Tip: All the rooms are pretty much the same so no major difference in choices that we knew.

We stayed three nights here and loved it. Rooms were nice and the view from the deck was awesome. There are only 4 or 5 casitas so you often have the place to yourself. There is a very nice pool and sitting area. And we loved having Natea keep us company on our walks or whatever we were doing. She is a four legged sweetheart.

We saw lots of wildlife without leaving our deck. Monkeys, toucans, hummingbirds and all kinds of beautiful butterfly's were seen daily there. For the more adventurous I recommend walkind down to the river below and then walking right through it to the ocean. Lots of wildlife there early in the morning. Won't need to set an alarm as the howler monkeys will wake you before sunrise.

I do have to mention, though,the one and only negative aspect of this establishment is that it is located fairly close to the highway. You can't see it but you will hear the trucks as they go by. Most people were not bothered by it but I think it does need to be mentioned. That is why I gave it four stars instead of five.

We absolutely loved our stay at Villa de Oros. Vikki is the sweetest host, and if you get the opportunity to visit you should ask her more about her story!

Highly recommend--I would love to return!

There is also a cold spring in the backyard of the villa. We found some tadpoles. :)

We enjoyed this lush jungle atmosphere next to a conservation area protecting it. Found some interpretive signs on the trail below. Our cabin was most pleasant and clean. We especially enjoyed the outdoor kitchen and table area with its useful closeline drying wet items and decorated with a lovely tropical bouquet. There we looked over the edge down into the jungle, listened for howler monkeys, watched the birds, visited, ate some meals, and played cards at night. Sometimes we jumped into the nearby pool. Its water was a comfortable temperature, was very clean and cared for, and had a neat design with benches on which to sit underwater. Great.

Room Tip: First cabin great for 3 with its outdoor kitchen overlooking the jungle and near the wonderful pool...

Sitting on the porch of the Villa provides a gorgeous view of the beauty of southern Costa Rica.
The monkey's morning wake up call reminded me that I was "not in Kansas anymore". If you are really lucky Natilla, the resident canine greeter will come visit you!!

Room Tip: It appeared all villas had a porch with an incredible view.

We loved the spacious villa on the corner. On the deck we could see the river,ocean and tucan's in the trees. Vickie was very sweet and helpful and told us of a nice quite beach near by. The location is great close to Ojochal's fabulous restaurants and near great beaches.
