This was the best stay of any hotel in my 10 day Costa Rica trip. I would recommend Villas Nicolas to everybody! The suites are spectacular with ocean views and rainforest vistas. There was wildlife viewing right on the property...monkeys, birds, agouti, and even cats came by for a visit.

We had a great time staying here for our honeymoon for a week. We were in the honeymoon suite which is 7 Up. The staff was super friendly and helpful, guests were quiet, room and grounds were clean and the view from our balcony was amazing! We saw 3 kinds of monkeys, sloths, bats, a macaw, a toucan, geckos, and... More

Villas Nicolas has good view of the ocean. We stayed on villa #3 upstairs, big balcony. AC works perfectly but bedding is too thin, so always cold at night. This property is supposed to be ADULTS only but is NOT, so we recommend you call any resort that posts as ADULTS only to confirm policies. Restaurant is almost non-existent, free... More

We stayed here for 5 nights with family and it was wonderful! The rooms are spacious and the lounge & kitchen areas are so nice and well stocked. The verandas are lovely and offer a great view of the rain forest and the coast. We had a room with 3 beds because we were traveling with our daughter (age 9),... More

We stayed here four nights, and the view from the balcony in our room was the highlight. Management staff was friendly, and helpful - they went out of their way to pick up bus tickets from the sales office in Quepos, and also helped us receive a partial refund on national park tickets that we didn't end up using.

Fantastic location overlooking the pacific ocean with great pool with excellent villas with hammock. Humming birds, Jesus Christ Lizards (walk on water) and Monkeys seen from the pool. Really good cocktails and food which can be delivered to your villa. 15 minute walk or 5 minute bus trip to beach and national park. Walk or take taxi to Playa Bisaenz... More

You have beautiful Pacific ocean views from every room. I prefer the Suites to a room because of the great kitchen. The hammocks are relaxing. The staff is not bilingual but they are very helpful. Awesome place.

My parents and I stayed for four nights in Villas Nicolas during my graduation trip in June, and it was our favorite place we stayed. After about six nights in "ecolodges" and "rainforest hotels" which were gorgeous but not luxurious, it was amazing to get to stay in a place that was so well furnished and comfortable. We never wanted... More

This was our second stay at Villas Nicolas and once again, we loved it! This time we brought our two adult sons (ages 21 and 27) and rented 6 up and down. It was the perfect solution, giving both of us privacy while allowing us to take advantage of the spacious, furnished balconies with outstanding ocean views, full kitchen and... More
