                                                The view, the food, and the staff all combined to make this one of my all time favorite trips. For beach vacations we typically stay at a big resort, and I was worried that by staying at a villa we would lose some of the amenities. However, all of my fears were alleviated as I quickly realized that the villa offers everything a big resort might, but with an intimacy that is unmatched. Any tour/activity can be casually planned by alerting one of the always near, but never invading staff. We did zip lining, catamaran tour, and did a day trip to a secluded surfing beach. The food was absolutely incredible, and there was nothing more relaxing than sitting by the pool and enjoying the incredible view. The villa is very large enough, and with many unique spaces, so that no one was on top of each other, but everyone was always near. It was a relaxing intimacy that you can't be replicated at big resorts/cruise ships. By the end of the week the wonderful staff felt like family, and Villa Estrella felt like a home that I've known for years.

                                                Our stay at Villa Estrella in Costa Rica was incredible. Not only is the house beautiful, but the views are breathtaking. The staff is awesome! They were very attentive, always there going above and beyond to ensure we were happy. You will no doubt miss them when your vacation is over. The food here is also amazing. Every meal we had greatly exceeded our expectations. All in all, my favorite part about Villa Estrella had to be the infinity pool overlooking the ocean or the great staff and my least part had to be leaving (there really is nothing bad to say about it.) I would definitely definitely recommend staying here if you come to Costa Rica!!

The service was incredible, the staff was extremely friendly and were very helpful to our every need. The food was great and was catered to our preferences. The staff took us anywhere we needed to go and waited for us till we finished our activities. The staff was also very knowledgeable about which activities and places were the best to go and visit. We definitely recommend Villa Estrella to all

                                                We could not have had a better vacation experience. The villa was amazing. The view, incredible. I have not eaten so well in all my life. The staff could not have been better. We experienced everything Costa Rica has to offer. Surfing, zip lining, and rafting were among our activities, but we were also just as to content to stay put and relax by the pool. When feeling ambitious, a walk to the beach was enjoyable and a great way to stretch the legs. All in all, it was a the trip of a lifetime. Highly recommend it.

                                                5 of 5 Everything about this trip was incredible, however the house absolutely made the trip a true vacation. The staff is amazing, meals are five-star quality and the views are truly immaculate. Waking up to monkeys howling, and falling asleep to the sounds of frogs made it feel as though we had been dropped in the middle of a virgin rainforest. Villa Estrella is truly an incedible getaway!

                                                Villa Estrella is an incredible place and the location is phenomenal. It is right in the middle of the jungle, but also has an awesome view of the ocean. We spent a lot of time relaxing at the house, mostly in the infiniti pool, but spent most of our time on adventures throughout the area which included, ziplining, whitewater rafting, beach excursions, etc. The staff is incredibly accommodating and the food is excellent... drinks too thanks to Michelle. I recommend Villa Estrella to anyone looking for a 5 star get-away in Costa Rica. Pura Vida!

                                                Though I previously thought it to be impossible, my second stay at Villa Estrella managed to top the first. Upon arrival, the friendly and attentive staff helped us get settled in to our lovely rooms, and we were quickly poolside, enjoying the awe inspiring cliffside view with a freshly made frozen drink in hand. Before long, we enjoyed one of the many skillfully prepared meals offered by the staff and settled in for a nice evening at the Villa. While it was tempting to stay by the pool our entire trip, we managed to pull ourselves away long enough to enjoy staff recommended adventures like catamaran, ziplining, surfing, and jungle tours. Villa Estrella shares access to a private beach with other Ocatal residences. Trips to other local beaches can be quickly organized as well. Nearby Cocoa Beach has many options for dining out, shopping, and nightlife, as well as a small casino. Overall, Villa Estrella is the perfect destination for anyone looking to enjoy the beauty of Costa Rica from a luxurious and well-run hillside getaway. I hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did!

I found the around the clock shuttles to be extremely convenient for a large group of people with different activities. I couldn't have asked for a better experience! Pura Vida!
