“Heaven on Earth”
Reviewed April 1, 2011

If you are looking for true paradise for your next vacation then look no further. La Casa Tropical IS EXTRAORDINARY!! Every detail of the interior and exterior is uber stylish and your comfort and enjoyment is guaranteed.

The Marriot resort and all its amenities are a short walk from this property but you may find you don't need to go any further than your own backyard. This resort home features a large private pool, Jacuzzi and even swim-up bar all tucked into an impeccably manicured tropical garden. There is a beautiful outdoor living room, fully equipped bbq area, and a gourmet kitchen that would make any chef squeal! For those of you who can't go without TV (I can) there are plenty including a huge one in the living room and a great sound system.

We were a large group of 7 and the place is so spacious we were never in each other's space. I choose the guest room separated from the main house, overlooking the pool - I suggest you do the same :) Private bathroom with a soaker tub! Hullo!

The location of the property is ideal. Tucked away from the real world but only a very short drive into the town of Jaco or to Manuel Antonio. The ocean and a beautiful golf course are at your doorstep.

I bet you'll be writing your own rave review when you get home from La Casa Tropical! ;o)

We just returned from staying at the Los Suenos Resort in a private home, La Casa Tropical.

There are many reviews posted regarding the Resort and the Marriott Hotel. I would agree with the majority. It is a beautiful Resort with excellent customer service. The food is great and reasonably priced.

I would like to focus my review, however, on the accommodations we chose. There are beautiful private homes in the resort that can be rented. After extensive research we selected La Casa Tropical because of the beautiful setting and ambiance of the home.

There was no expense spared in the dark hardwood flooring, travertine and granite throughout. Much detail was given to the lighting and art . Painted murals and decorum by local artists gave the home a rich and tropical costa rican feel.

The views and the sounds of the rainforest (including siting of spider monkeys) were most relaxing. There are two master suites with one privately located in it's own building connected by a covered walkway (see picture). We were traveling with another couple so it was perfect for us.

Included with the rental house is daily maid service. Jessica would come in daily and take care of the needs of the home and of the guests. She was a delight! You couldn't rinse a glass without her insisting that you play while she takes care of the work! We thoroughly enjoyed her company and look forward to seeing her next year.

We would, and will, return again to stay at this fabulous home. This is our first trip to Costa Rica and I can't imagine anything topping this trip!
