My husband and I decided to travel to Dominical, Costa Rica for our wedding with our immediate families and stayed at Casa Ramon for the week of festivities. It is an amazing villa, well priced, which was built to fit into the natural setting but has modern/rustic finishes. It is set on the hillside so you have amazing views from the look out point and villa itself of the ocean. The villa is split into three floors with different living sections each with tons of space for everyone. Each room has individual a/c, which is much needed and are decorated uniquely keeping in line with the natural element in which the villa is situated. The beds are very comfortable with top of the line linens. The bathrooms are also clean and modern yet rustic. There are many different living areas inside and outside to enjoy. We spent the majority of our time by the pool or on the many outdoor balconies. The barbeque area at the top of the villa was perfect for a lovely evening with family. The main kitchen has everything you need to cook and is high-end. There is a small honeymoon casita detached from the rest of the house by the pool. The downstairs is a kitchen/living area with an upstairs massive bedroom with a beautiful rustic 4-poster bed overlooking the ocean.
The wildlife you see at the villa is astounding from toucans, frogs, monkeys, iguanas, insects, etc… It is close to some great attractions including Marino Ballena National Park and Corcovado National Park. A rental car is necessary. The area is beautiful with local beaches secluded and the coastline more forest than developments/buildings.
The pictures on the website are a very good representation of reality. Efron was an amazing manager attending to all our needs while at the same time giving us the space we needed. He was especially helpful and accommodating on our wedding day assisting in the reception set-up. He cares about your experience and added some personal touches to his management – decorating our bedroom on our wedding night with beautiful local flowers. I was really impressed and touched by this effort to ensure our wedding day was perfect. The housekeeping service was great with the rooms always well kept and the maintenance staff were superb with everything in working order. We had no complaints.
The owners were a pleasure to deal with. I had no issues in booking or organizing our stay. They were helpful in assisting us in the planning of transport to/from the airport and a personal chef service. The food by Jhonathon (personal chef) was absolutely amazing. My family to this day talks about all his amazing meals. It is definitely worth the extra cost as it incurs less hassle and more time to relax and enjoy the villa vacation experience.
Staying at Casa Ramon was definitely a once and a lifetime experience I will never forget as it allowed us a bit of luxury while being able to stay all together during our wedding week. It was the ultimate luxury experience! I cannot wait to go back!
