The house is beautiful, comes with daily cleaning and laundry service that was unexpected. View is incredible, you can hear the howler monkeys in the mornings and if you are lucky have a visit by a sloth and cappuccino monkeys. Toucans were there every day. Road to the house is an adventure, definitely need a 4x4 to get there, but... More

This house was amazing and was only given 4 stars for a few small reasons! A few things you should know - bugs - they live there, too... It is an open air house but has a/c in the bedrooms! The bugs didn't bother us, however, we were surprised when we got there that no one had aired out the... More

I'm not sure what Villa Ambiente was before as a "hotel", BUT I can tell you that it is very lovely NOW! My friends and I, 8 of us, stayed at Villa Ambiente for 6d/5n in June 2015. IT WAS EXCELLENT!!!!!! The place has been transformed, and hosts 8 rooms with equal accommodations. Each of us had our own room,... More

Our confirmed reservation for early January 2014 (3 nights) was cancelled by this hotel without any reason or excuses. At least they could have arranged other options for us in this busy season as it is difficult to find a good alternative. Luckely we have found another hotel by now. I wouldn't trust your booking at this hotel.

The hotel is in the middle of a lush tropical forest, and in theory you need a 4x4 to get there. We drove our small car for those 2.5 km and had no problem whatsoever. The place is beautiful, the breakfast you are given is plentiful and really good, it's easy to see the stars at night, you relax to... More

once you'd have approached the hotel via a bush road (you better take a 4wd!) crossing a small river and driving steeply uphill for approx. 2 kms, you'll be rewarded with a small boutique hotel, which was built by swiss at "swiss standards", meaning that the hotel wouldn't only survive a nuke attack, but also the high-end appliances and furniture/decorations...

If you crave total relaxation, scenic location, intimacy, good meals and a friendly owner then I would highly recommend this hotel. NO KIDS --Great. It is not everyday you can see toucans outside your balcony and hear holler monkeys in the distance. Perched on the side of hill, 750 ft up from the main highway you will require a 4x4vehicle....

I agree with all the current reviews in that Villa Ambiente is a lovely small hotel with magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean. However, my partner and I must have caught the German lady owner on a bad day, because we really had a bad welcome the day we arrived. Perhaps if we stayed more than one night our opinion... More
