We were in Costa Rica for a week and stayed at a few different spots over the course of that time. This was our final stop and boy were we glad! It was the perfect way to wrap up the trip on a GREAT note. We stayed two nights and I can honestly say that I wished we had been there for all 7. The views were just breathtaking. The pool area and our villas looked straight out over the ocean. The villa itself was so homey with a full kitchen and spacious bedroom. Comfortable bathroom with a big shower. Rocking chairs on the porch. The pool was the perfect temperature and crystal clear. The top of the mountain location gives a feel of peacefulness and also security. Then just at the bottom of the mountain is the ocean and beautiful beach.
I also couldn't write this review without mentioning the lovely gentlemen who own the Villas. Russell and Scott made us feel so welcome and comfortable. They were attentive and also just really great people to be around. They take a lot of pride in the place and it shows! This will be the first place that we book when we go to Costa Rica in the future. Pura Vida!
