  • Christmas Awesomess!!

    "Our stay at Villa Vista de Oro was incredible. Our entire family of 11 spent the week of Christmas here and it was full of awesomeness. The villa is absolutely beautiful and meticulously maintained by an incredible staff. It has 180 degree views of the ocean complete with beautiful sunsets and great breezes. We had the pleasure of monkeys on a few mornings out the front door. The birds were all very entertaining as well. Four of the bedrooms had splendid ocean views and the “bunk” room upstairs had great jungle views. Every bathroom was jaw dropping gorgeous. I cannot rave enough about the staff and the all-inclusive aspect of this villa. Isabel was a savior with her fluent English. She arranged for smooth pickup and drop off of family coming in from the Ohio, Oregon and England! She arranged for all of our tours and shopping excursions with expert precision. Isabel was there every day to meal plan with us and answer any questions what so ever. What a beautiful person she is and a pleasure to talk to and visit with. And I can’t say enough about the all-inclusive way this villa is run. This method takes all of the hassle out of everything. There was always plenty of beer, wine, water, food, whatever we needed. Isabel even made a special “coffee run” to get us coffee to take home. Chef Jose cooked us 3 wonderful, delicious meals everyday with fantastic desserts as well. He even accommodated one of our family members that had dietary restrictions. Jose Mario kept the pool spotless, our drink glasses full and even protected us from a possum in a tree that was driving the dogs crazy one night, haha. Costa Ricans celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve so we wanted to give them the night off. Chef Jose and the staff prepared our entire dinner ahead of time so all we had to do was just grill it up and serve it. Complete with a delicious, festive dessert of course. No aspect went unforgotten. Isabel arranged for us to go fishing (caught a huge Mahi Mahi), paddle boarding, sail/snorkel cruising and shopping. She even accompanied us to the local rodeo that was in a nearby town. What a great experience that was! I shouldn’t forget about the local rescue Monkey Farm either. Very interesting and worth the visit. Everything was perfect and you just can’t put a price on being able to spend quality family time together with no hassles. I would certainly recommend this wonderful villa to anyone."

  • Amazing Villa!!

    "We just returned to MN after spending 7 nights at the Flying V Villa. The villa was beautiful! After a full day of travel, customs and dealing with renting a car, we were welcomed to the villa with a care package. We really appreciated all of the information on local restaurants, shopping, activities, etc that Verda had emailed to us and was also waiting for us at the villa. We snorkeled almost every day - what a treat! Fishing with Raffeal, George and Freddy was great too - we caught several black fin tuna and a couple of Rooster Fish (50+ lbs each). The Adventure Tour is a must. There was everything we needed in the villa to cook many of our meals. However, we also enjoyed dinner and snacks at the Picante. I can honestly say that I had tears in my eyes when leaving the villa and saying goodbye to Ceasar and Jackie. If we ever make it back to Costa Rica - this is where we will stay!"

  • Wonderful Holiday!!

    "We initially started planning our Holiday with Pam and had nothing but exceptional customer service; she was so prompt at responding to any questions or concerns we had and made sure everything was taken care of before we arrived. Upon arrival we were in awe of the beautiful accommodations; private rooms and on suites as well as a beautiful deck overlooking the ocean with comfy lounge furniture. We spent a lot of time at the pool and beach which was only a two minute walk from the Villa. All the staff were Amazing! The chefs prepared delicious meals, baretender served up great drinks; even none alcoholic ones for the kids. The pool was always clean and laundry was returned washed and folded within an hour of leaving it out! If you want an exceptional, all-inclusive and relaxing Holiday this is the spot! I look forward to visiting Barefoot Vacation Villas properties in the future. "Pura Vida""

  • Great Stay!

    "My family (brother, brother’s fiancée, father) and myself went to Costa Rica for vacation. After spending some time in the rainforest we headed to the beach. We stayed in villa 19 at Los Almendros and couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The views out the back of the villa were amazing, overlooking the water. The villa was clean and modern and air conditioned – which after days in the jungle, hot and wet, being cool and dry was wonderful! The villa is well stocked with entertainment choices (flat screen tv, wifi, computer, books, movies etc.) in case you need some time inside. The kitchen is ready to cook in and easy to find items in – always a plus. There were also lots of little things to make your stay nicer like plenty of towels, a hairdryer, safe, and access to the washer and dryer. All the pillows and beds were comfortable and everyone in our group was comfortable temperature wise since each room had its own A/C unit. The sound of crashing waves lulled us to sleep every night. A few steps down from the villa is the sparkling pool, complete with lounging hammocks under shades. Just a bit further down the hill is the main entrance where you’ll find security and the dive shop. If you continue walking from there you’ll find yourself at Father Rooster’s (a restaurant and bar) on the beach. It’s probably about a 5 minute walk from the back door of the villa to the beach. A short drive down the road is Playas del Coco where you will find tourist shops, dive shops, restaurants, the grocery store etc. It’s a very short drive. We did scuba from Coco, we saw sharks, a ray, tons of fish and generally had a great time. I would highly recommend this villa as a base of operations for your costal explorations in Costa Rica!"
