This was my second stay at the Alta Vista and I will hopefully be back for many more and sooner than later. My first review is here somewhere or it got lost somehow but in any event, this is really the best of both worlds. You have a modern condo with all the comforts and a fabulous view in a typical Costa Rican neighborhood on the undeveloped side of the beach. All the other reviews are on the money and making reservations with the owner Patrick is very easy. His manager Catherine is a very nice young woman who does a great job of taking over once the reservations are made and checks you in and out. Randall is the watchman and maintenance guy who is all Tico which means he is a happy friendly guy. The maid is very nice too. There are some sodas (cafes) attached to a couple of the houses in the neighborhood where you can eat fresh typical Costa Rican food at very reasonable prices or you can take a short walk to town and eat while looking at the beach and ocean.
I have been to Costa Rica over 30 times and the Alta Vista and Samara Beach are now my favorite places. I just need to find a way to stay there forever.
