I have stayed at Mareas Villas twice and can not to go back again! This place is majestic. I have traveled the world and have been to over 30 different countries, each with their own special place in my mind but nothing has ever compared to the unique beauty of this Villa. Whatever your interest, there is a remarkable offering... More

The location and setting of Mareas is beautiful. However, I feel the need to share our experience having my daughter's wedding there. The wedding was held in the middle of June, and was planned over the course of about a year. Anyone planning to have a wedding there should be aware of a few things. There are daily power outages....

It is unfortunate and sad to receive a review such as this as we work very hard to satisfy our guests in every way possible. There were hints dropped by members of her family that she was difficult to satisfy and we did everything in our power to make her feel comfortable. The month of June proved to be a... More

I will preface my review by saying undoubtedly that my words will fail to describe just how special this place is. We set our expectations for a vacation and rarely are they met. In this case surpassed in every aspect! I went for a Fitness & Yoga retreat hosted by Tanja Djelevic you can find her @loudfitness on Instagram and... More

I hosted my retreat at the Villa and I cannot say how pleased I am with the result. It was way beyond my expectations! The hosts Pilar and Tim were amazing and everything about the place was incredible. The wild life surrounding the villa was so fun to be a part of. The taxisituation in the area needs to improve.

Mareas is by far the most beautiful place we have ever been!! The rooms are huge and some have very cool outside showers. The infinity pool is gorgeous and so is the hot tub. And the waterfalls on the property are amazing. Sweet people own it, and we hope to come back again soon!

If you are a bride considering a wedding at Mareas, go for it! It will be hard to find a more beautiful venue and compared to what you would find at a similar venue in the US, the pricing for the ceremony is very reasonable. Tim and Pilar worked with me for a year leading up to the wedding (36... More

Absolutely stunning spot for a wedding! The whole villa is really beautiful with a stunning infinity pool with incredible views of the rain forest and ocean - we saw so many stunning birds. The rooms are beautifully appointed and clean with lovely bathrooms - some being outdoors so that you feel as though you are showering in the forest. Getting... More

Incredible is not good enough. I couldn't ask for more. The rooms were clean and spacious. The grounds were gorgeously manicured. We eventually found ourselves in the infinity pool overlooking the jungle and coast at least twice a day. Close enough to other tourist sites by short car ride. There's a couple trails for hiking that took us to a... More

I actually wasn't able to book a home from Pilar and Tim but I wanted to share my experience in working with them. I was trying to organize a trip for 8 couples. I sent lots of questions to Pilar to try and gather info and get pricing. She was very responsive and very helpful. She also got me in... More
