  • Excellent location to the beach and restaurants.

    "We spent a week in this beautiful home in March, 2014. We are a family of 4 and the place was more than enough for us, spacious rooms and closets, great open kitchen and great family room. The L-shape couch in the family room is very comfortable! In the morning we had our breakfast outside and enjoyed the beautiful view of Ocotal, then we would walk to the beach, just 2 minutes away. In the afternoon, we enjoyed the pool next to the restaurant, (there are plenty of pools around the complex). there is also a children's pool. The restaurant is just perfect, they cooked specially for us since we had some dietary demands for the baby (4 month old) and my 5 year old. My husband went fishing one of the days and caught enough fish for dinner, which they happily cooked in the restaurant for us. Downtown is about 8 minutes away by car and we went to the supermarket a few times during the week to buy food, there is also a private clinic and ambulance services and pharmacy. The hospital is about 40 minutes nearby, which was important to know since we traveled with a newborn. There are other beaches nearby, Ocotal, Playa del Coco, Conchal, Playa Hermosa, Sugar Beach, etc.. within 20 minutes or less from each other. This home is located on top of the hill with gives a better view of the ocean and it made us feel better than being in front of the ocean. We would definitely return next winter (we live in the northeast USA) if the property is still available. Dealing with Anthony, the owner, was easy and efficient. We would recommend this property to anyone who wants a great vacation in beautiful Costa Rica and beaches."

  • Paradise!

    "We had a fabulous stay here! The villa is located in the upper portion of Bahia Pez Vela. The view was unbelievable. The landscaping at the villa was beautiful, bougainvillea framed the ocean view... pride of ownership shows throughout the villa. The villa was absolutely beautiful, inside and out, and had everything we needed. Although the villa is a steep walk from the main pool, there's another pool on the same level as the villa. We had a car, so sometimes we drove to the main pool, but it would have been nice to have a golf cart. That said, we were just as happy to sit on the patio and admire the view. We were regularly visited by Coatimundi in the morning, Mapache in the evening, and white-throated magpie jays throughout the day... lots of fun! Bahia Pez Vela is a very nice "resort", well maintained, with beautiful landscaping, and nice people. Cesar, at the office was very helpful, and the staff at the restaurant, the gate, and those maintaining the grounds were very friendly. The beach is very quiet and secluded. There weren't many other people staying at Bahia Pez Vela, so we practically had a private beach and pools. Playas del Coco is very close by, for grocery shopping, dining, or an evening out at the many lounges. I can only speak positively of our entire experience with the owners, Verda and Neil, and our stay in Bahia Pez Vela!"

  • Best View In The Resort!

    "This Villa is closer to the beach than the pictures show. The covered patio is great for escaping the very hot mid-day sun. The listing is very accurate; it's well-stocked, great beach view, close to restaurant/bar/pool. The resort seemed pretty empty while we were there. We liked it that way. No crowds at the pool, restaurant or beach. This is supposed to be rainy season but we only got rained on once while we were ziplining about 1.5 hours away from the resort. It was still fun and was combined with a hot springs visit. We also went on a wave-runner tour and an ATV tour. Both worth doing with our kids ages 20,18,14,11 & 6. And my in-laws enjoyed them too! Our rental cars, dinner reservations and activities were arranged by Kelsey. Her service was great and I changed things many times before we got there She got everything done, no problem, and called me when I arrived to check on us. Priceless! I would definitely recommend this resort and this villa in particular!"

  • Great Villa, Fabulous Community, Terrific Owners

    "I had a fabulous Girls getaway for four nights. This is a wonderful villa in great community. Tastefully decorated, great value. Fully stocked condo with everything we needed to cook. Spacious unit, a/c and solid WiFi. Steps to beach and pool with good snorkeling right off the beach. Calm ocean. Resort feels quiet and serene. Picante restaurant on premises. Good food, try the Batten Verde, a blended mojita, yummy! Not open for breakfast. 10 minute drive to shopping, high -end supermarket and nice restaurants. Must have car. Easy access to fun day trips. I went canyoning and tubing. Resort staff is friendly, responsive and English speaking. We had car trouble and they helped us. They even arranged for a massage on beach for me. Owners were terrific to work with. Easy going, nice and friendly. I would definitely go back and next time I’ll even bring my husband and kids."
