“Fantastic place to stay at beautiful end of the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

The villas were really nicely designed, really well maintained with the nicest owners ever! Dotan, his wife and Maria were fantastic in terms of helping out at any opportunity and were extremely welcoming. Dotan put us in touch with a great surf instructor and horse riding guide. Beautiful pool in the middle of 4 villas only a few steps from the beach. Great restaurant Rocamar to have mojitos and lunch, with friendly staff. The villas are located on the quieter end of the beach which is lovely. ATV/car/bike would be handy, otherwise taxis are easy to get. The best restaurants (Koji's and Habanero were our favourites) are not actually in town so in fact the location of the villa was great as it was in between the two. Fantastic beach with great surf. Definitely recommend!

This is place is incredible. The owners are fantastic, and the villas are beautifully designed, super clean and well maintained. We woke up to howler monkeys in the trees and we were just a few steps from the sand. Can't wait to return to this amazing place.

We had an incredible time in Paradise ! The Villas definitely exceeded our expectations - roomy and open, and the balcony was perfect for just chilling out.The teenage girls with us loved the pool, and the short walk to the beautiful beach for a wave check was always greeted with smiles and hola's from the folks at Roca Mar (a sweet spot to hang out as well).The location is perfect and has it's own atmosphere compared to "town".
The staff was all wonderful - Maria and her team truly do a great job. Yateem helped us out before we even got there by having a cake ready for us to present to our daughter for her birthday our first day. He was also very helpful with his local knowledge and can accomplish a lot with a couple phone calls.
This was our third trip to Costa Rica , having visited the Nosara and Samara areas previously(thirteen years ago the first time) and there is no question this was by far our best experience yet.
We can't wait to make it back to this incredible, relaxing place . Pura Vida !

Room Tip: 2 BR Villas are great !

We had such an amazing time staying at the Villas for our honeymoon. The villas were exactly what we were looking for-- private, very near the beach, kitchen (with blender and coffee maker) and AC in the bedroom to sleep at night. Yateem was absolutely outstanding helping us set up all of our activities and answering questions. All of the reviews we read before arriving were great in describing how great this spot was, but I'll add a few things we were wondering about:

-There is food within walking distance, although rent a bike or a quad, it will save you time. Roca Mar is a little beach bar with great hangout/ conversation areas set up and really decent food and is literally on your walk to the beach. They do lunches and dinners. We found great breakfast about a 4 minute walk up the beach upon recommendation from Yateem, although with the kitchen, most days we had breakfast on our amazing front porch. Great dinners to be had all over town with prices from very low to lofty.

-You can swim and surf on the beach out front. Many places we looked at claimed the beachfront, but some beaches are really rocky and not safe to swim in. Definite plus.

-Town is a (fairly) easy bike ride away, and a decent stroll. We really liked this- kept us close enough to go in to visit the bakery, hit the atm, etc, but far enough away to feel, well, away. We opted to rent a quad (set up again by the amazing Yateem) and really felt like it was worth the money. It allowed us to explore some other beaches, carry surfboards, go to dinner way down the beach, etc.

-This place is SUPER CLEAN. I can't express how both friendly and thorough Maria and her sister are- they do an outstanding job, and really pay attention to details. Fresh flowers on the outside dining table and on our bed every night. So great.

-There is a safe in the villa, big enough for a laptop/ Ipad, and some small personal belongings. We were constantly warned about locking things up and about theft, so this was great.

-They provide beach towels.

We had such an amazing trip, and were genuinely sad to leave. We will be back.
