My family of three teenaged children, my wife and I all stayed at Villa Alegre between Christmas and stayed until after New Year's. We stayed in their "Russia" bungalow, a bedroom and a living room that slept three. Ample, large bathroom with huge walk-in shower. Lots of counter space. Private patio. Right next to the infinity-edge pool.
This is our second stay to Villa Alegre. Our first was a second honeymoon of sorts. We decided then to come back and bring our kids. What a treat. With the B&B as a base of operations the kids to go the 200 feet or so down to the beach, hang out by the pool, nap or play games.
Owners Barry & Suzye are gracious hosts. They prepare a fantastic breakfast out on their large patio every morning. Delicious (and strong!) coffee, a kind of quiche or other main course, homemade breads, an amazing raspberry spread that's nothing short of crack and fresh fruit. A feast! They also are wonderful concierge as well, arranging dinners in town, working out excursions and other outings tirelessly.
The decor is nice and the atmosphere casual and relaxed. The entire place is comfortable and everyone seems to get to know everyone else. Whether you relax in a hammock by the pool with your Kindle or take a walk into Tamarindo to enjoy the local shopping and dining or work out to take surf lessons down the beach, Villa Alegre is a great place to stay in Costa Rica.
