If its any indication of how amazing this place is this was our third trip to Villa. We decided to come back again this year in January for a post holiday relaxation trip. We chose to come here again because we knew exactly what to expect and what you should expect is some of the best staff and people who make you not only feel like a welcomed guest buy like friends. After our third trip here we can honestly say we have made friends with the people who work here and can't wait to come back for a fourth time. This being our 3rd time here over 4yrs the same staff has always been here and that to me is a great indication of the not only how great this place is but also how comforting it is to come back and see the same friendly faces who great you with open arms and smiles. The hotel itself is located on a hillside secluded enough to make you feel like you are away from the real world but a short taxi ride away (5min) from a great nightlife in Coco and another 10-15min taxi ride from two amazing but different beaches, Ocotal and Hermosa Beach, that both provide a real Pura Vida vibe. The rooms are very spacious and they all have amazing views of the property and ocean views. I would always choice an upstairs corner room to take advantage of the corner showers that provide panoramic views that make the rainfall showers even better. The food deserves its own review and is some of the best tasting food I've ever had. It is alll local sourced and some of the freshest local Costa Rican food. The drink menu is vast and provides plenty of options from wines and local craft beers to fresh made in house cocktails (green iguana is amazing!) They also make the best chiliguaro in Coco and is a personal favorite of ours. We love this place because of the people. Carlos, Javier, Alex, Cesar, Marijke (and Tasmania!), Christian and the entire staff have become friends and we can't wait to visit our friends again.

Quaylewoman (and man!) there is no better reward for us then to have our guests return AND to read your amazing review about how you feel part of our family! It´s something we can not express in pictures and it makes all of us so happy to know that it´s one of the reasons we can count on seeing you back (aside of the beautiful beaches, rooms and great food of course)! In name of all of the VBO Team (including Taz of course) thank you for sharing your kind words and we can´t wait for your 4th visit! We´ll make sure it only will get better :) Pura vida!

The best vacations ever, the view is breathtaking and the staff is exceptional, food was really good and breakfast was my favorite part of the day, close to town yet secluded at the same time, we were able to visit 3 different beaches, lounge at the beach club and walk around town.

I can not say enough great things about this place. The staff is top notch, the food is amazing and you can’t beat the location. We rented the entire villa and it was one of the best vacations I’ve ever had. I felt super safe and the staff helped coordinate everything from massages to boat trips. I would stay here again in a heart beat.
