During my Costa Rica’s traveling, I stayed at 5 different hotels. Along the Pacific, I stayed at the Sugar Beach hotel for 5 nights and at the Hideaway hotel for 3 nights because of 3 nights initial booking request. I waked out of the Hideaway hotel straight to the closest, the Villas. They attentively considered my appeal and found the best option. I stayed for 4 nights. According to my perception, the Villas was the best hotel for a number of the reasons:
First of all, no one impinged on my choices to get the best out of the vacation. The stuff helped to materialize my wishes. The hotel has its own transportation. If I wanted to visit a different place, they dropped me off and picked up at my convenience. I was not limited by anything but my wishes.
Second of all, what they advertise is truth:
The location. The hotel is located exactly, as they advertise. It is a front beach hotel. No any dusty roads between you and ocean. There is a big coral riff across the ocean that calms the waves. You can get to Samara walking along the beaches, 20 minutes approximately. In opposite directions lays the Carrillo beach. This beach gives more possibilities to surf.
The activities. They do some remarkable tours. I took the kayaking two times. The first time it was kayaking to the Island. The second time it was the kayaking to Carrillo. The instructor Steve(n?) knows the waves and ocean. He is an expert. Though that was the very first time for the instructor to take someone to Carrillo by ocean we did not have any problems. All decisions and hard work was his. All pleasure was mine.
The food and wine. The food from the restaurant was good quality and always tasty. The wine was what it is supposed to be. You have some choices. In case, if you do not want to cook, you can have food in the restaurant, or order it to your villa, or order it to the bar in the middle of the swimming pool. The restaurant works until late evening. Breakfast hours are extended also. For sure, included breakfast is not abject.
The service and clearness. The service was very friendly by all means. Fresh towels, clean sheets, test of quality of water in the swimming pool ( to my astonishment). They fulfilled all my occasionally arising needs.
The safety. They have front guard and beach guard despite the fact that surrounding is tranquil.
In short, if you want to spend your money with pleasure, this hotel is the best place.
