My husband, four children ( ages 7,9,11,&13) and I spent eight fabulous nights in Villa #5 at Villa Kalimba. After travelling in the rain forests for 4 days it was the perfect place to relax, unwind and soak up the sun. Roberto and his staff went above and beyond to make us welcome and comfortable. Finding accommodations that work well for a family of six can be challenging - but Kalimba provided us with two comfortable cots for the kids and we always had lots of towels. They provided beach towels as well - which was a bonus. The Villa and the grounds were absolutely spotless. The pool was cleaned daily. I loved the daily cleaning service - such a treat to leave in the morning and return to a clean villa. It was spacious and very well equipped.
We usually made our own breakfast and lunch at the Villa - ate on our lovely private patio. Roberto cooked at the Villa twice during our stay and both meals were spectacular!!! Truly the best meals we had in all of Costa Rica. Perhaps the best Italian food we have had anywhere.
The location was perfect - just across from the beach, so it was just to seconds to run back if you forgot something. Walking distance to everything you need and tons of restaurants The beach was great - loved all the little restaurants along the water - we could sit and enjoy a beer and watch the sunset while the kids played in the sand and waves. It is a great beach for learning to surf. We took all took a lesson at Tico's and all six of us were standing on our boards catching waves.
I would absolutely recommend Villa Kalimba to anyone travelling to Costa Rica
