My wife and I stayed there for a wonderful week-long eco-holiday celebrating our 50th anniversary. It was superb: great cottage with view of the ocean, lagoon and tropical rainforest, excellent gourmet food, warm friendly staff, attentive owner -- what more could one want? They went out of their way to prepare a special lunch to celebrate our 50th! Lovely!

Martine is an amazing host, who will bend over backward to make your stay wonderful. If you want to learn about how the rainforest functions, this is the place. The inifinity pool looks over the Pacific ocean, the cabinas are clean and beautiful. The sound of the ocean lulled us to sleep every night. Our trip was handled beautifully, from...

I would highly recommend travelling to the Osa Peninsula and staying at Laguna Vista Villas. The views of the lagoon and the ocean are incredible and the sunsets are breathtaking. I loved the intimate and cozy feeling created during the meal at the main lodge and appreciated that it was a smaller resort with less traffic. I was able to...

I loved every second of my stay at LVV. I had a glorious deck with a plunge pool and a hammock. When I wasn't hiking in Corcovado or horseback riding along the pristine beach, I was laying in my hammock listening to the crashing waves. When I got a little warm I just slipped into my fabulous plunge pool. For...

Probably one of the nicest places I have stayed in the world. The villas were beautiful with the most incredible views of the lagoon and ocean. Birds and wildlife were abundant. The rooms were spacious and clean and the beds really lovely and comfortable. The pool was large and perfect temperature. The hosts cooked beautiful food - only point is...

If you are travelling on your own then definitely make sure you're travelling with a 4X4. There is good road until Puerto Jimenez, however from there you have to take a 40km dirt road until the report. It is definitely worth making the trip because once you arrive there you are realising that this one of the most remote and...

Beautiful and scenic, outstanding management and chef. I truly enjoyed my week at LagunaVista Villas. Martine and her team run the place with great energy and passion. It has a beautiful pool and all of the villas I toured had incredible views.

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....

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...
