“Villa Tranquilla ROCKS!!”
Reviewed 12 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Most amazing vacation we have ever taken. Eugene and Sary we so kind and extremely professional. They made everything perfect and they took care of every detail. They bought the food, set up the car rental and had someone set up to do the cooking. The home was truely amazing. The private beach was spectacular! Can't wait to return! We loved Costa Rica! Pura Vida

“BEST WEEK EVER!!”
Reviewed 8 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We stayed in Villa Tranquila for my wedding week with my 10 bridesmaids and their significant others. The week in itself was the best week ever, but having our home base be Villa Tranquila really made the week complete! Stay in Tamarindo was so great to work with, extremely responsive and helpful. The house manager, Eugene, & his lovely wife were INCREDIBLE. We all felt SO comfortable knowing they were just a phone call away if we needed anything at all. Their service was truly 5 star!! One night he even drove some of my girlfriends that wanted to go into town for dinner down to Tamarindo so that they wouldn't have to call a cab! The cleaning service did an outstanding job as we came home to a spotless house every day. There is filtered water throughout the house & 2 huge ice chests which was nice since we didn't have to buy bottled water or ice. The fridge was big enough to fit our 500+ beers & other necessities :) Definitely recommend renting golf carts if you did not rent a car as you will need that to get around Hacienda Pinilla. We can't wait to do a reunion and come back to stay at Villa Tranquila!

“Once in a life time....one must stay @ Vill Tranquila!”
Reviewed 4 May 2017 for a stay in April 2016

My family and I were immensely blown away by the grand scale of this Villa! Decadent in appearance and in service! Eugene Call and his lovely wife Sary Reina offered stellar services ranging from house keeping to general maintenance. The 2 in tandem offered a 5 Star service that was above and beyond the call of duty on their part! The staff on hand were equally awesome because the staff kept the villa clean, comfortable and relaxing!

The Villa offered spacious rooms that totally made us feel like home! And the pool in the rear of the Villa coupled with the breathtaking views that envelop the Villa , felt like pure magic!

Would my family and I come back to Villa Tranquila? Hell yea to the yes because we partied like it was 1999. We were not flanked with neighbors and boy oh boy...did we kept the music beating into the stillness of the night!

Thank you, Villa Tranquila, for one of the most amazing times I ever had the chance to experience in my measly life! Once more, thank you Eugene Call and Sardy Reina for all that you have done for my family and me. Thank you!

“Luxury with the benefit of an accomodating manager”
Reviewed 1 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Secured in a gated community, this luxury villa is fitted with everything you need, or want. The natural beauty of the grounds, the pool, and the in suite bedrooms add to the realized dream of Costa Rica. Eugene, and his wife ,Sary, treated us like friends, as well as valued guests. They acted as concierge , guide, and assisted in transportation. Wait to book tours and activities until you speak to Eugene. His experience is most helpful, and the rates are more reasonable.

Consider the catering that can be made available. We enjoyed a true "Costa Rican" dinner on our last evening, and our only disappointment was that we failed to do it sooner.

While we were a group of seniors, this Villa experience would be terrific for all ages and guests with varied interests.

“Amazing Place to Stay”
Reviewed 14 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Villa Tranquilla is an amazing place to stay. I highly recommend staying here. I took my family to Costa Rica for a vacation and stayed here on this property and will definitely go back to this house. The Property Manager was very helpful in recommending places and site to go see. The private beach was amazing!!! He also helped out with giving recommendations of tours on a daily basis. The African Safari tour was the highlight of the trip. THe animals came and literally ate out of your hands as we were riding. Giraffes, Zebras and many other animals.
The house had all the amenities that we could ask for. The pool was great and they had grills to cook on when we wanted to cook. The rooms all had smart TV's and they all are there own private villas. My kids loved having there own rooms with all the amenities. The golf course was very convenient and the house is on the 18th fairway. The house is very quiet and located in a gated community. Can do morning/evening walks and enjoy all the beautiful landscapes that Costa Rica has to offer.
I definitely plan on going back to this house again.

“Great house, ideal for multiple families, but location, location, location....”
Reviewed 13 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Fantastic house for big group or multiple families! The house manager, Eugene and his wife went above and beyond to make our trip a success! Can not say enough about them, they were fantastic, and really know the area and all the ins and outs of the area. House is very clean and well maintained. I highly recommend you speak with Eugene prior to the trip to get organized with chef, maid service, logistics, planning activities, etc... We were a group of 15 (4 families) and we had plenty of space, and got plenty of rest, as the house is well built, and you can't hear through the walls. Be prepared for the location of this house; you are very isolated. We were guided to rent golf carts which was a waste of time and money as you can't really go anywhere with them except the JW Marriott and the Beach Club. Can not drive them on the beach or off property. Also, to use the JW Marriott and Beach Clubs pools, restaurants and beaches there is a per person cover charge. You DEFINITELY will want to rent vehicles to get into Tamarindo and to beaches with no charge. Tamarindo is a very cool surf town, and overall a great spot to vacation.

We're glad to know you enjoyed your stay at Villa Tranquila! Eugene really does go out of his way to accommodate his guests, he's great! and his staff as well!
It is true that Villa Tranquila has a very calming feeling. The house is actually in a perfect location: It sets on the 18 th green of the largest golf course in Guanacaste. It is centrally located to everything inside the 4600 acres Hacienda Pinilla gated area. It is right across the street from the tennis courts. It is within a two-minute walk to the Golf Club house and It is just five minutes from the private beach and four minutes from the Beach club.
Thank you again for staying with us, we hope to have you back sometime soon. Pura Vida!

“Amazing Experience”
Reviewed 23 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

The greatest comment resides in our eagerness to book again for another excursion in Costa Rica. We had an amazing time. Five stars for the accommodations and five stars for the level of service.

My wife planned her brother’s destination wedding in Costa Rica and this house was the venue. As great as an ocean/beach wedding would be, the house was better as the backdrop and also served us well for the entire week. Roughly twenty people stayed there comfortably with guests arriving and leaving at different times. The house has private suites within and was very roomy. The place was clean and well maintained. It was located minutes from the beach that is tucked away from all the public crowds as found in Tamarindo. The house is also closely situation to the JW Marriott which provides some excellent dining options for eating out. Wifi was reliable and located in every room and never had a problem connecting. It was perfect even down to the small family of harmless iguanas that lived in the landscaped portion of the property.

As great as the accommodations were, something needs to be said for the personal service that Eugene and Mariela provided. Hosting a wedding, we had several unique requests that we required assistance with. The wedding, the entire week and the lack of issues are a credit to their assistance. The wedding and the days leading up and afterwards were all made possible because of their hard efforts to accommodate us and our special needs. Eugene and Mariela went above and beyond and were completely professional and pleasant to work with. We cannot thank them enough. We now look forward to scheduling the next family and friends trip to Costa Rica without any hesitation on where we plan to stay.
