I was able to stay in Villa De Linda for my husband and I's 10 wedding anniversary. We were able to rent ATVs through the help of Jessica of Blue Beach Property Management. We had an amazing maid who took care of the house daily, including laundry and fruit prep. We had a magical view from the entire property especially the pool. We were able to see whales right from the pool! We took in the sites and had a guided tour of the Arenal Volcano as well as zip lining. We took an amazing boat tour as well on Paski's Boat Elsa. We saw hundreds of turtles who were in season getting ready for laying eggs. We also toured Casa Aventure which in its own right is just breath-taking. I know When we book again we will stay there.
Jessica, Zak and Leah & Mike were accommodating and knowledgeable and able to help whenever needed. I highly recommend Booking your Costa Rican adventure with BLue Beach Property Management.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa De Linda! I highly recommend staying here. It is the perfect setup. The master bedroom and the living room open up to the garden and infinity pool area. We spent most of our mornings sipping on Malibu and pineapple drinks while wading around in the pool staring out over the ocean. The beach was footsteps away from the pool and is perfect for children to explore hermit crabs sand seashells. We even stumbled upon a herd of cattle while walking the beach. There is also a shallow kiddie pool away from the infinity pool which was an awesome feature. Our stay was beautifuland relaxing. Cannot wait to come back!
The villa and the view are really beautiful. We were impressed with the beach where you are completely alone. We were nine in the villa, there was enough room for everyone.
Major negative points:
- we ran out of water during 3 of the 7 days we were there, and the landloard never contacted us to apologize. We had to deal with the villa's employees that only spoke Spanish. The brother and father of the manager came, but she never came back after our arrival. We were really pissed because not having access to working toilets for 20 hours in one day, 7 hours in another day and 3 for the other day always on rush hour with 9 people in the villa is unacceptable and unhealthy. With all that, we could not complain to anyone that would help us speaking to the landloard for a complaint.
- there was no climatised air in one of the room (which was promised upon reservation).
Coming back to Quebec, we tried complaining and the landloard only gave us a 100$ credit for future rent with their company... like we want to go back after all this!!!! The landloard said we did not complain while we were there that is why she can't do anything.
Beware of this location!!!!
