Normally I don't write reviews, but this place was fantastic! The apartment was lovely and so clean. Location was perfect, and the staff were all so friendly and helpful. It was the best place I stayed in all of Costa Rica and I will go back and stay there longer. I highly recommend it! Thanks!

Villas Pepitas was beyond perfect. Its a short 3 or 4 minute walk to the beach, in the middle of shops, restaurants and ice cream and has ice cold a/c, ceiling fans and a full kitchen! This place was our favorite place that we stayed when traveling throughout Costa Rica. I loved our patio that had a hammock, 2 seated... More

Several great things about this place. Right down the road from the Palí so we could stock up on some groceries, buy fruit and shrimp on the side of the road, and eat very well for very little with the kitchen in our apartment. Ate out on the gorgeous and extremely private deck most nights. But some great restaurants and... More

We booked a very nice appartment here. We had our own balcony, a hammock, a good equipped kitchen. Rooms had fans and airconditioning. The only downside was that the cold air from the airco was pointed directly at the bed. The swimming pool was nice and warm and had shade. Parking and wifi available. A good place to stay!

We had a very pleasant stay at Villas Pepitas with our 2 children (9 and 11 years old). The apartment was very clean, spacious, and comfortable with a large terrace with hammock, great to chill during the hottest hours at noon.

We've stayed at Villas Pepitas twice and love it. Very chill vibe, friendly staff and nice rooms. It's about a 5-7 minute walk to the beach. Family friendly. Low key. Nice flowery pool area. Samara is a great place to learn to surf and has a great feel. Pura vida.

We had a very pleasant stay at Villas Pepitas. The apartment was very large, the beds comfortable, the gardens lush and the pool clean and big. The garden and the apartment were cleaned daily (except for our first day), we had daily change of towels and bed linens. A/c and fans worked perfectly and helped us to cool down. Villas... More
