I found Hotel Villa Amarillo through Trip Advisor and so glad I did. This isn't your typical hotel - it is so much more! My daughters love being by the beach so we picked the right spot - not only is it RIGHT on the beach - it is right in the middle of the main thoroughfare so we were able to walk everywhere - shopping, eating, etc. They have Diego - their own concierge sitting right inside the gate that arranged EVERYTHING for us - our transportation to and from the airport, our sunset cruise and an entire day of adventure - even calling around to find us the best price! As soon as we walked in the door we felt like we were just visiting with old friends. Cinde had a shot of tequila with us to start our week, gave us the lay of the land and we settled in. We met other guests the very first night as everyone gathers in the chairs at the end of the courtyard to watch the sunset together every night. Soon after sunset we were already having dinner with other guests - CInde and TJ make it a point to introduce you to the other guests and by the time we left we knew everyone there by name. We came and went but interacted with the guests at breakfast every morning and again at sunset. They provide croissants and quiche every day in their community kitchen. (also note they provided us with clean beach towels each day AND sunscreen so we didn't have to pack our own - NICE amenity!) Our last night one of my daughters wasn't feeling so good and it was raining off and on so I joined other guests in the little covered gathering area where people were sipping beers and playing a heated game of Jenga! They have a sign reading come as strangers - leave as friends - YEP that is exactly how we felt. Thanks to TJ and Cinde - If we happen to be in Costa Rica again - we will be back!
