We were a group of 12 people and booked this place for our trip to Costa Rica. The house is absolutely immaculate and the owner, Eugene, is super helpful if you need anything from the market, or even giving us a ride into town.
All rooms are spacious, well maintained and fully equipped with towels, beach towels, soap, shampoo and conditioner. The house also has its own pool.
We alternated between adventures like a snorkeling trip, zip lining, a jungle cruise or trip into town, and laying by the pool to relax. The weather is perfect and since you are so close to everything, it's easy to get around.
We are definitely going to be back and will refer this place to friends and family.
From my initial booking of the property to our last day in Costa Rica, it was a great experience. The staff booking our activities to meeting the owners of the property everything went smoothly.
Gene and Sary welcomed everyone into the house. They were available to assist with all of our requests.
The staff who assisted us with booking our activities, kept us all informed as to the price, the date and time, and we were shuttled to all our events.
All 12 of our family and friends said this was a perfect vacation home. We will definitely book this property again.
From our initial booking to eventual arrival, the staff was helpful and knowledgeable in every step of the way. The villa is a perfect blend of privacy and large areas for the whole family or group to gather for fun--cards, games, conversation, etc. Cris, our concierge, booked the most memorable private 4-hour sail boat ride on our last day from Playa Flamingo along with multiple shuttle bus rides from Liberia Airport. Eugene was a wonderful local guide through the supermarkets and Anna and Kimberly cooked delicious breakfasts and dinners for 17 people. There are just so many options here--stay at the beautiful villa and relax by the pool or read in the shade, head to the beach club or other activity nearby. Thank you for having bikes to get around locally for exercise!
Our family of 24 (ages 2 to 63) had the most amazing experience staying at Villa Tranquila. Eugene gave us ideas of what activities to do. We spent time at the Beach Club, Hacienda Pinilla's private beach -which was our favorite, Playa Conchel where some of us went out on Wave Runners, and one day was spent at Ponderosa Adventure Park. We had 8 children under the age of 10 and Ponderosa Adventure Park was geared to their level of activity, but was also geared to this 63 old who had never been zip-lining before and was very skeptical.
Eugene and Sari were extremely helpful. Our daughter was ill before arriving in Costa Rica and the day after we arrived felt like she was worse, we called Eugene and he took her to a near by medical clinic. Staff members Kimberly and Anna were also great to work with and helped make our stay at Villa Tranquila most enjoyable.
We had 5 - 5 years olds on the trip and all of them said we don't want to go home. Upon returning one of the 5 year old said to his mom - "I don't want to go to LegoLand, I want to go back to Costa Rica". That is how we all felt- Truly Awesome experience.
Our stay was a 5 star experience! There were 23 of us in total, all family from young to old. Everything from the Villa, the staff, concierge, drivers, housekeepers and most importantly Eugene and Sary were amazing!!! Eugene made our trip that much more enjoyable. He made sure everything was always perfect and even drove us into town one night after 8pm for dinner. We would definitely highly recommend and stay again!
THANK YOU to everyone at Stay in Tamarindo!
We loved Costa Rica and the Villa was more than we could have asked for. There was plenty of room for our large group of 23 comfortably. I would recommend this villa for any one looking for a safe and scenic place to go for vacation. We were able to do zip-lining, an ATV tour, a Palo Verde rain-forest tour, horseback riding, massages and a animal safari which the kids loved. Since we were located on the 18th hole it was only fitting that we gold as well. Cristina helped me plan and arrange everything which made the trip so easy for us and she even arranged for a vehicle to be delivered to the villa to get around. Eugene was excellent the entire trip, he made sure we had everything we needed and even took us on a tour of the property so we knew where everything was located. We had the entire week catered by Gusto Tamarindo, Francesco and his team were amazing. The food was excellent and all made with all fresh local ingredients. We cannot wait to return to Villa Tranquila.
Most amazing vacation we have ever taken. Eugene and Sary we so kind and extremely professional. They made everything perfect and they took care of every detail. They bought the food, set up the car rental and had someone set up to do the cooking. The home was truely amazing. The private beach was spectacular! Can't wait to return! We loved Costa Rica!
