Hands down this was the most gorgeous, splendid, delightful and alluring places one (or many) should visit. Although there was a small hiccup in our stay; Jack Cox (owner) was there to make sure that everything ran smoothly and his guests were taken care of! I would love for my family to return next year. Oh might I add that... More

My friends and I went there for a birthday celebration and had an amazing time. The staff and owner were more than accommodating to our group of 17. I highly recommend this resort and my friends and I are looking forward to our next visit. Thank you to Rafael, Guillermo and Jack Cox. :) Molly & Kevin Fitz

9 years ago we discovered Villa Cascada and made our first trip. This June marked the 4th trip in those 9 years. The people are just too good, the value too high, and the experiences are priceless. My jaw and core hurt from the laughs each time we leave, from smiling and laughing non-stop. I can't say enough about the... More

This place was purely magical. I don''t think it could have been planned any better. I loved EVERY moment of my vacation here along with my friends and family. It was by far the BEST vacation/trip ever. Everything felt so private and catered to us! Where can you go and get anything like this? You feel safe, your kids can... More

The whole experience with Barefoot Vacation Villas was perfect. My brothers friends are spread out around the country so we all needed to fly for his bachelor party, no matter what. This enabled us to do something different. We had this pie in the sky idea of renting a tropical house with all the amenities but never really expected it... More

We booked a vacation through Barefoot Vacation Villas. There were 16 of us and we stayed at the Playa Ocotal villa. It was fabulous! Guillermo was our point of contact once we were in country and he did an amazing job greeting us, getting us settled in and organizing outings. The accommodation was wonderful (although there were 2 rooms that... More
