I recently stayed here for 1 week on group retreat. I enjoyed pretty much every detail the house and property had to offer, including short hikes to 2 private water falls, and even lounging in the room, common areas, and especially the pool area with spectacular "too good to be true" views of the amazing jungle and Pacific ocean.

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.

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
