My husband and I had a wonderful stay here in August. We stayed in Casa Morfo and it was just lovely. We had our own private plunge pool which we were able to watch monkeys, butterflies, coatis and the sunrise from. There was plenty of comfortable seating outdoors to enjoy the

Arrived at the hotel, put valuables in the safe, went to dinner, came back and everything had been stolen. The safe was forced open with perhaps a crowbar, clearly an inside job, perhaps a disgruntled employee familiar with the place. Completely ruined our trip, the resort has

Response from AguaVistaCR, Owner at Agua Vista
Responded Aug 22, 2016
We find it astonishing that six months after your visit you are writing this review. As we told you repeatedly during your stay -- while you cursed Costa Rica, made accusations to us, bribed the local police, complained about Montezuma, and used our personal mobile devices (and email!) so that you could make business arrangements -- we are horrified and sorry that this happened to you. We would NEVER want anything like this to happen to any of our guests. We were as stunned as you were by the audacity of the thief and have since taken much greater measures to prevent this from ever happening again, including stronger window locks, installing security cameras, new safes, and more. Our two person staff has been with us for years and we are deeply offended that you would suspect them (or us!) of doing anything to jeopardize their livelihood. We were saddened that you did not have any travel insurance that might have covered your loss. Costa Rica (which is not the United States) does not have available any type of rental home insurance that would have covered this - otherwise, we would have it! The insurance companies say this is because there is no way to prove what items people are traveling with, particularly cash. We refunded to you the entire amount of the rental fee the following day when you said you didn't want to stay. And then you stayed, which we understand; Agua Vista is a beautiful place, as you told us yourself on your third day with us. This area of Costa Rica is remote and very much off the beaten path, as is Agua Vista. Usually, this attracts a kind of tourist who is adventurous, open minded, and aware, interested in the richness of flora and fauna which abounds, the alternative and multicultural nature of town, and in leaving a light footprint.

In a beautiful, remote hilltop jungle location, our sweet little bungalow welcomed us to Montezuma. Agua Vista is a nice retreat from the town of Montezuma. Our bungalow had it's own dipping pool, hammock and outdoor (fully private) shower. The grounds have a koi pond and

Marvellous views of the ocean and jungle too, yet all the amenities are to hand. You can walk for miles in the national parks and not see the animals that wander into the garden, but none of them are intrusive. We had a wonderful time trying to photograph the humming birds.

Hands down one of the best places stayed in our two month tour of Costa Rica. Y'all were so sweet to our wife (girlfriend at the time) and I when we showed up off the water taxi (with Ruby from London) and didn't have a place to stay because we were "winging it" and trusting her

Alguien ha visitado este lugar en automóvil? Sera necesario un 4x4?
Hola Massiel, Depende mucho en como esta el tiempo. Si llueve, los caminos pueden ser resbalosos. En verano no hay problema llegar en automóvil. Sin embargo, toda la zona tiene caminos en mal estado, inclusive las calles nacionales - asi que es mejor andar con 4 x 4 en la Peninsula.
