“Fabulous view.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

One could pay 5 x more for this view! The rooms are large and comfortable. The restaurant next door is excellent! Excellent location.

Our room was number 5 where we had a fantastic view. The accommodation was comfortable, clean, spacious and well equipped. The balcony was a real bonus although the close proximity of the adjacent resturant did disturb the special ambience when it was busy. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. Swimming in the pool surrounded by monkeys and a sloth in an over hanging tree made this experience one we shall never forget. There are regular buses both up and down the hill making this an ideal place to stay for easy access to the National Park and other attractions.

We were greeted by a man named David.. We stayed in Villa # 15.. He was so pleasant and friendly. We were so amazed by the view but then we saw the villa... it was so amazing our breath was taken away.The house keeper did such a great job! There was a bottle of wine in the fridge for us. We had everything we ever needed... even a bag of local coffee to take home with us. This villa is more than worth the money!! The pool and the animals are out of this world!!! We can not wait to go back!!

Room Tip: We stayed in Upper and lower # 15 in Villas el Parque!!! www.costaricabeachvila.com

Our room was clean and had nice balcony with a beautiful view! I loved listening to the howler monkeys at night and seeing the white-faced monkeys down jump around the trees. However, be prepared to deal with the natural Costa-Rican elements (i.e- bugs, bugs, bugs!). They weren't nasty bugs, but just annoying. Additionally, the pool was so-so. The restaurant was pretty good and had a gorgeous view! There are a lot of other restaurants within walking distance, including some bars for late-night folk. I'm a pretty fit person, but the walk to the beach was a little too far to walk for me. Overall, it was a decent stay for the price. The only way to get better is to pay a lot more.

The room i get war really nice, good 3 stars. The view fantastic, walk to the beach nice, for some one who likes to walk, but on the way bach go with a bus (really easy to reach with a bus for some cents). Everyone was nice, only the pool wasn't relay my think. It was clean, but just for a short bath to cool down, there is not so nice that someone likes to stay there for hour and take the sun. I recommend the hotel, because the price is OK, sure there are better options to stay en M.A. but for much more of money.

Room Tip: Bigger rooms for 3-4 people are verry nice. Smaler for just 2 not so much.

The location of this place is great. We got a two story villa with kitchen and the view was amazing. My family and I had ample space. There were two showers and for being half outside it was pretty clean. The staff is very helpful. There will be bugs and other insects so be on the lookout. It rains alot so bring a pancho or umbrella. The power does go out from time to time too, but not a big deal if you are on adventure. We got one of the staff to hire a cook to come cook us a costa rican meal for like $40 and it was so good. We also rented a car in San Jose and drove their and it was an easy drive from the airport and all around the park. Make sure you white water raft, catarmaran, parasail, and visit the manual antonio. The restaurants close by are expensive, but for the most part are great.

I stayed at this hotel during my last night in Costa Rica. We stayed in 11 mid which is a large suite. From our room you could enjoy a great view of the pacific ocean. The room was huge, and it was equipped with a kitchen, dining table, and two beds. The room was clean, and the hotel staff was extremely helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone but especially to people traveling in groups since the apartments are perfect for this kind of trips. This hotel is part of a big complex of villas. Some Villas are part of the Hotel and some others have private owners. I was told by locals that the private ones are in much better conditions. The only inconvenience I found were the windows in my apartment. The windows had a translucent bamboo curtain not too good in terms of privacy since you could see through them especially at night when the lights in the room are on and its dark outside. This was especially bad since my room was right in front of the hotel's restaurant.
