We chose TikiVillas based on the reviews on TripAdvisor, almost thinking it was too good to be true. We spent seven wonderful days there, and we can tell you it is as amazing and comfortable and beautiful as everyone else has said. I believe the commitment of the owners to the environment and the local community makes the extra magic of this beautiful hideaway.
There are five villas, and each one is spacious and private. The sleeping area has a king size bed and a side area with a desk. The bathroom has a large indoor shower attached to a private outdoor shower, which was very nice after a day in the jungle. Beside the bathroom is a large walk-in closet with a safe. The bedroom area has large doors that open onto a balcony with a breath-taking view of the pacific ocean. We slept with the doors open, and we woke up to jungle noises and sunshine every morning. We saw toucans, agouti, and various other birds from our room. We also heard the howler monkeys every morning. In addition, there is a nice kitchenette with a refrigerator, coffee maker, sink, and hot plate. The room was cleaned thoroughly every day.
At the main area of the villas is an open air eating/lounging area where we could get drinks, eat a traditional Costa Rican breakfast, or splash about in the infinity pool. Every morning we were offered delicious fresh fruits, eggs, bacon, gallo pinto, pancakes, and that tasty Costa Rican coffee. We really felt relaxed and at home.
With all these terrific elements, I have saved the best for last. The service provided by the staff at the villas was --bar none-- the best we have ever experienced. Richard served breakfast, drew maps, made reservations, and refused no request we made. Minor (hope my spelling is correct) hoisted luggage through the rain, chased off critters from the porch,and took pictures for us. We would return from a day of adventure, and both would instantly appear with water, towels, and whatever else we needed. Richard's fresh mango colada was the BEST! They made our vacation a truly memorable experience, and we consider them friends.
So go to TikiVillas! This was our first trip to Costa Rica, and it won't be our last. Pura vida!
