The hotel is very well located on the mountain, yo access with car/quad, this gives you a priceless view. The rooms are very nice and cleaned every day. At night runs a very nice breeze so you can get a quiet sleep. The owner "Marco" took great care, always willing to help and give advice. Highly recommended for couples or people who look for quiet, clean and tidy.

Room Tip: There are rooms with kitchen and others without, choose well. The one on the corner has no kitchen b...

Stayed there with my wife last week for 4 nights and we couldn't be happier, this place is gorgeous and the rooms view to Playa El Carmen are Stunning, price wise is great!!! very cheap comparing to other B&B of the Area that are not even close to have this type of rooms.

The Staff is very friendly and willing to help you whenever you need, Marco the owner and his wife are in House to help you with anything you may need, also they have two staff who take care of the place and do the cleaning of the rooms and the outside areas.

There are rooms with kitchen and rooms without it, we stayed in a room without the kitchen however requested a fridge and a coffee machine and without any extra charge we got it, this helped us a lot to storage cold beers, orange juice for breakfast and milk for the cereal. The coffee machine was also provided and it was great to wake up every morning and drink a Costa Rican Coffee watching the monkeys travelling around the trees surrounding Vista Naranja, as well being able to check the Surf Break before going down to the beach.

Vista Naranja is Located 4 minutes by car up in the hill of Mal Pais, I highly recommend use an small SUV however you can also access by foot 12 minutes walk, or 4 wheel motorcycle.

We stayed here for 4 nights. It was clean and precisely as advertised. As others have mentioned, the track up to the house is somewhat intimidating. It challenged our 4-wheel drive vehicle. By the end of our trip, I was finding it less of a challenge. The view from the apartment was absolutely magnificent at sunset. Without AC, it did get fairly hot during the day (in January) but it cooled off acceptably at night. The Italian couple who own it were very helpful. My wife had a massage from the wife of the couple and she said it was very good.

Vista Naranja is in Mal Pais, a beautiful town in the Pacific Coast in Costa Rica. We found several places where we could have stayed, but this one caught our attention since the picture looked nice and it had very good reviews.

The place is fantastic, the decoration is great and the rooms very comfortable (you will have everything you need). Important to mention the fantastic view (you could spend hours in that balcony from where you can the ocean, hear the birds and experience beautiful sunsets…. )

A place that we will always remember… A place where we have plans to visit again!

Room Tip: All the rooms have ocean view and looked nice. We stayed at the two bedroom suite since we are a fam...

The best reason to stay at Vista Naranja is the amazing view you will get from your private deck, which also features a sofa and table so you can sit outside. The room itself is beautiful and very clean. The road up to the Vista is rough, so best to drive up in a 4 x 4. And although it seems to be high up the hill, it is actually a very nice hike (~15 min) to the various restaurants in Playa el Carmen (bring a small torch). Monkeys are easily spotted from the deck and one afternoon we even saw a jaguarundi in the trees in front of Vista!

I love everything about this place. It's location gives the best view of the beach and the forest. It is very clean and comfortable as well as charming. The owners are very friendly and provide recommendations about restaurants and places to visit around. I think price can not get any better. I strongly recommend this place if you want to relax and take a time just for you. I love it.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Vista Naranja is an energetically healing home, built in 2011. The house has been designed honoring the ancient tradition of “Feng Shui” and is inlayed with hidden crystals throughout its architecture. Special measurements and orientation of architectural features in the home help it to harmonize its inhabitants with good luck and increased well-being. The interior floors of the rooms and apartment are polished white concrete that feels cool and soft to the feet. During the day you can sit on your own teakwood terrace while enjoying the soft ocean breeze and observe nature as it comes to you… Monkeys, birds, parrots, butterflies, and iguanas are some of our regular guests, but at times we see migrating whales in the distance or some even more elusive wildlife. Let the ocean-wave lullaby sing you into dreamland so you can wake up refreshed for another day of adventure. THE ROOMS All four rooms on the second floor have a fantastic ocean view from private terraces and they are furnished with queen beds, fans, screened windows and doors, safes and private bathrooms with hot water. The two central rooms also have fully equipped kitchenettes. The terraces can be inter-connected to create one or two apartments accommodating up to 8 people. APARTMENT The apartment is situated at ground level with a spectacular private ocean view.
