This holiday filled us up with wonder, intrigue and awe. The physical aspects of the buildings seemed to be designed to take advantage of spectacular views- from every vantage point- from the dining area- to the showers and even some of the toilets!. The food was clearly a source of pride (thank you Coco) along the eco philosophy apparent throughout.... More

Greeted by Martine on our arrival, who was a wonderful, warm, bubbly source off energy and a great hostess. We were shown to Villa 7, which has a great location near to the dining area/bar, with fantastic views over the Lagoon and Pacific Ocean. The rooms are fairly basic, but perfect for the setting. The electricity is run by solar... More

Martine is a great hostess with great energy, passion and knowledge of the Osa. Laguna Vista is a lovely place, providing comfort in a balance with nature and sustainability. I really have no criticism for this lovely ecolodge. What a great location immersed in nature. The lagoon nearby is like a bird sanctuary, rich in diversity. Nature is all around... More

After arrival and intake by the wonderful Martine, who took exceptionally good care of us and was very thorough in her explanations and recommendations in the area. We were served a delicious lunch by Coco the chef. We didn't actually make it to our room till a good hour and a half after we arrived. Once we did... Whoa! I... More

Perfect for couples and for peace and quiet. This place is stunningly beautiful with excellent customer service. We were lucky enough to have Coco cook for us as he is an exceptional chef and person, who made our experience even more delightful. We highly recommend staying here and doing the hike into Corcovado Park but you can also see plenty... More

Our family (2 boys 6 and 11) from Germany stayed here in Feb 2016 for 3 nights. After a rough 90 min drive from Porto Jimenez we were more than happy to find this little paradise. The team is just great, esp. Martine, the manager, and Coco, the cook. They were especially wonderful with the kids. Full meal board is... More

This was our second visit to Laguna Vista Villas this year, (our 4th in the past 3 years), and to be honest, we were a bit concerned that it just couldn't possibly be as magical as each previous visit. We were right...Incredibly enough, it was even BETTER! Since our last visit in March of 2015, the kitchen and dining areas... More

The beautiful location, room, luxury of simplicity, peacefulness, and friendly staff made this trip fabulous. My villa had a plunge pool, round indoor shower, outdoor shower, two sinks in the bathroom including one that faced east over a low wall (open to the outdoors), AND an outside sink. The ecolodge also has an infinity pool, lagoon, and paths to the... More

I spent two nights including New Year's Eve 2014 into 2015. Most beautiful place I've stayed. Individual, private bungalows/rooms. Bathroom & shower were outside; take a shower while looking at the ocean. Meals are simple; eaten on deck with other guests; very laid back. The only staff member that spoke much English was the manager, a wonderful younger man from... More
