My family (4 of us) wanted a place to stay that was both close to the beach and town. We also wanted a place that was quiet and peaceful. We found that (and more!) at The Surf Villa Vista! Our room was spacious with 3 queen size beds, an ample deck with a fully equipped kitchen outside, and a view that was picture perfect. The room and facility in general was very clean and always felt great to come home to for an afternoon siesta, or after a full day exploring. Besides a stove and oven, the kitchen also included a grill, which was nice to cook fresh fish, which is available in the markets. It was never cold on the deck and we enjoyed the ocean breeze. Plus, there are some swinging hammock chairs that are wonderful to relax in while enjoying a cocktail and looking out at the sunset. The hill that takes you to the beach and town is a bit steep, so you may want to rent a car or a couple of quads. But it was nice to be up the hill because town and the main road can get noisy and very dusty. The villas closer to the beach have a lot of foot traffic so we appreciated being away from it all, but close enough so that it was convenient. It was so wonderful to hear the howler monkeys while cooking or resting. There are many song birds too, some of which would visit us every morning while we were eating our breakfast.
The owner and his staff were tactful, helpful and friendly. Whatever we needed, they were always willing to help. I highly recommend staying at ST Surf Vista Villas and we certainly hope to be going back in the not so far future, god willing.
