We joined three other couples for two weeks at the resort. It's about 3k from the Village of Coco. The resort is actually a collection of villas stacked up a lush hillside fronting a small almost private beach. The atmosphere is very laid back. You'll want a car to get to

This place is unreal in beauty. So quiet and private and just breathtaking! Only 10-15 minute drive to Play del coco. The concierge's, the wait staff, house keeping, will go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need and are 100% satisfied. Food at the restaurant

We were staying down the road from BZV and on our 2nd last day in CR we lost our wifi. We needed to confirm our return flight that day or trouble would ensue. We drove into the resort, went to the office & asked if we could tap in to their wifi. Of course, said our new best

We stayed in one of the condos at the top and the walk is very steep. My husband and I exercise regularly and we were both winded by the time we walked up. It’s great exercise but not a pleasant walk back in the heat if you forgot your sunscreen.

It is a wonderful place for families. We took are teenage boys and chose this resort so we all could spread out and have privacy. It was amazing and Caesar, both at reception, and Caesar in the restaurant made our stay even better. We were not on the beach but one tier up and there were villas with private pools. The villa next to ours was a family with younger children. The beach is pretty private which is nice.

Probably not a good choice for a person with mobility issues. Lots of stairs everywhere and no easy access to the beach. There a plenty of full services resorts in Costa Rica that might be a better fit for your party.

"The villas nearer to the beach are more convenient as the property is on a steep hillside and there is some walking to the top!"
"Lower rooms are louder next to restaurant but great access to beach. Upper rooms offer more privacy but is a hike down to water."
"Get the villas on the beach if you can."
"Some of the rooms are higher up the mountain and have a great view but it quite a hike to the water."
"the lower the villa number the closer walk to the beach"
$478 - $718 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
