This was our first Costa Rica Vacation, we were celebrating our honeymoon, the entire experience was very impressive. To start, it's rare when you arrive to a resort and it actually exceeds your expectations based on things you saw and read from the internet but The Red Palm Villas definitely surpasses what you see in photos in a wonderful and delightful way. The whole experience made us feel like VIPs- the site, the warm staff and unrelenting service, and the amenities.
We booked their Costa Rica Honeymoon Package, it included private chef service, tours, and transfers, we're very happy we did, there were no hidden costs or surprises which was very nice for a change and in the end it had everything we wanted and still allowed us time to explore on our own and rest and relax as we were exhausted from working hard all year and planning our large wedding back home.
The Honeymoon Villa is so astounding that I got teary eyed at the beauty and even more amazed that we had the good fortune to stay there! It is modern yet has tasteful Asian like details everywhere and it was very spacious (you could have a great party here), full of splendid views of bright blue sea and the waves and white sand beach which you can enjoy from several
rooms, both bedrooms and the porch.
Each day we woke up, we went to the beach to enjoy our coffee or juice and just gave thanks for being so lucky to spend our honeymoon here in Costa Rica. We had heard a lot about Santa Teresa Costa Rica from our friends who travel a lot and actually twice last year randomly the The Red Villas came up...first time we heard it was from a friend who had stayed next door to The Red Palms, he said he actually saw Gisele Bundchen and her husband Tom Brady over there one day as he was walking down the beach, it turned out this is where Tom Brady's family was staying during their wedding which took place just down the beach. You have to imagine how wonderful it felt hearing we were sleeping in a villa that Gisele once slept, honestly, I'm a huge fan of hers, I could see why she choose this place, I felt like a princess the entire time I was there.
The staff is amazing-they keep the place immaculate, are always on site to help you, drivers are available to take you to town (5mins) or to tour you around the area all day. The staff is even there when you come home late at night to make sure all is well. We were unlucky to not meet the owners- they were away in another country where they just had a baby and were staying with family.
The place is really perfect, you quickly feel like part of The Red Palms family as everyone is so kind and gracious and sincere which was other highlight as well as the three dogs who roam the land in a playful way, always taking walks with us and keeping us company. We felt very fortunate to have such a great staff attending to our needs while enjoying 5 star accommodations at a reasonable rate. Great for families, retreats, groups, and yoga classes, so you have it all in exquisite splendor at an exceptional Costa Rica Resort right on the beach with one of a kind views unlike any place we have ever experienced.
If anyone who reads this is a planning a honeymoon, stop looking, you found the place, you will never find a resort more peaceful, private, beautiful, well staffed with such unique and wonderful homes. We're glad we found this place and as often as we say we don't like to visit a place twice, my husband and I know for certain this will always be a special place we will remember and try to visit as often as possible, it really is unique and earns the reputation as the number one spot, thanks everyone at Red Palms for a honeymoon full of magic to be remembered forever.
