“Best time in CR”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

We had best time at this place during our 10 day CR trip. 4 nights in 2 bedroom villa. Greg is great owner. Well maintained property, good caretaker, excellent suggestions on everything. Beaches are gorgeous.

I cannot express how happy we were with the villa! Greg is very attention to detail and made sure our stay was comfortable! He was our go to guy with questions! And went out of his way to help out anyway he could! And the villas are absolutely gorgeous! We truly felt like we entered paradise! Thanks again Greg! We will be back! Pura vida :)

Greg and his staff made our stay perfect!! They went above and beyond what we needed. The villas are nice, clean and easily accessible to everything in the area. We had a wonderful time and plan to stay there again (hopefully soon)!!

Room Tip: The rooms on the street side have a more interesting view, but the rooms in the back are more privat...

Could not have chosen a more perfect place to stay for our family of four! We stayed at Villa Almedro- centrally located, spacious, clean and a very sensible floor plan. After our morning surf, we looked forward to relaxing on the west porch overlooking the beach road- great place to sip coffee and people watch while locals and tourists got their day started. Afternoons were generally spent on the large east porch which overlooked the Villa Solar grounds and gardens. We have traveled to many remote areas of Nicaragua and CR and have seen more wildlife on the Villa Solar grounds than I think anywhere else! The beach is located a 3 minute walk across the street, and there are 2 wonderful restaurants (sodas) and a smoothee shop just outside front gate. Although the accommodations are located of the main beach road, it is located in a neighborhood and surrounded by local families- it gives you a wonderful sense of security as well as a way to assimilate into the local scene and meet the warm, local Ticos. Our boys enjoyed playing in the streets with the local children after school.
What truly makes this place special however is the efforts of the Owner (Greg), his staff and Luna (their dog)!. It is very apparent from the moment you arrive that their number 1 priority is to make sure that all is well. It is their genuine concern and attention that give Villa Solar a feeling like a home away from home. Many, many thanks to all of you at Villa Solar! We will definitely be back (and will stay even longer).
Cheers,
Mike, Natalie, Myles & Simon

We are two couples who just stayed at villa amapola for 4 nights and we are so happy with our stay!!

The place is beautiful and incredibly tidy with every detail thought of. In fact Greg's incredible host skills and attention to detail in both the suite and in his availability and dealings with us have spurred a new saying in our group: "well he/she is no Greg!"

Truly an incredible place that is super comfortable and clean and stylish. Only about a 3 minute walk to the beach!

The AC units are super effective the beds and linens very comfy. Truly every detail thought out and held to a very high standard. The gleaming wood back decks have a really lovely view of the jungle hillside with lots of sunshine and shade and a perfectly placed hammock to chill in.

Also if security is a concern this place is extremely dialed. From the gated entry into the courtyard to the villa itself everything is very well secured.

We highly highly recommend staying here and will definitely be back!

Thanks Greg!! Though you may have spoiled us for any other hosts to come :))

My husband and I stayed in Villa Carambola from Feb. 23 - 28, 2014. It was exactly what we were looking for. The accommodations were quite nice. We had good water pressure, hot water, no ants or bugs, and excellent A/C. We felt secure and safe at all times. Luna is wonderful. If you are not a dog lover, you will be after spending time with her. Sweet and loving while also looking after the guests. Greg was super!! From the initial interaction through the last he was prompt, reliable and wonderful in helping us getting around and suggesting restaurants and things to see and do. He speaks fluent Spanish. He arranged for reliable transportation to and from the airport and was very accommodating on the last day when we checked out at 10, but our flight wasn't until 4. Villa Solar is conveniently located walking distance to good restaurants, shops, grocery stores, and the beach. We took short cab rides to a few very nice restaurants too. Don't leave without trying a smoothie from Greg's place in front of the Villa. YUM! One note is that many places only take cash and banks are not on every corner. The beach is advertised as one of the top 10 prettiest in the world and it really does stand up to this title. I'd definitely stay at Villa Solar again in the future.

I'm somewhat loathe to write this glowing review; I fear this location may be sold out too often, and I won't get back in when I need it
We rented villa almendro for three weeks, and found it to be top-notch in all areas that really count: 1. It is close to the action, on the north side of the road, before any climb up the hill, and only a few steps from a well used path to the beach. 2. Security is a major concern for the former new yorker who owns the place, and he provides gated security, with room for your vehicle inside the compound. The live-in staff also live inside the compound, and their dog is alert to any intrusions. 3. The apartments are well supplied, and very clean, staff do mops-ups and bed changes every three days to keep it comfortable. 4. Air conditioning throughout the apartment and wifi that extends onto the back deck overlooking the compound and the green hillside beyond. 5. The owner is a great guy, easy to deal with, and with a vested interest in your comfort. I heartily recommend this rental.
