"We stayed here last July for 5 nights and loved it. This year we returned to CR for 17 days. First part of trip was in Dominical and then in Cabo Matapalo in the Osa. Both houses were great but there is something so so special about Villa Vista de Oro and it was the perfect way to end a phenominal trip. AC didn't hurt either!
THE VIEW!!! 180 degrees of ocean, sunsets, evening lighting storms, birds and flowers. Howler monkeys in the morning. I can never tire of the view.
THE FOOD!! Diego's food was delicious. Pancakes, freshly made sausages, toast, omlettes and fresh fruit for breakfast, lunches like ceviche or amazing nachos, and dinners and desserts that had us licking our plates (and raiding the kitchen later at night to eat some of that amazing coconut pie or icecream!) Pina coladas and milk shakes for the kids and mojitos and margaritas for adults. Lovely presentation too.
SERVICE!! After arriving from the Osa where everything is damp and stinky, laundry is done and folded and delivered to your room. House is kept impeccably clean. The new caretakers, Nestor and Carole, making sure we had everything we needed and then some, driving us to Pez Vela to go for a swim, keeping the wine and gin that we liked fully stocked, turning off lights when we went to bed and bringing the dogs for a visit and swim bc we missed our dog so.
THE ALL INCLUSIVE ASPECT-We stayed here for 4 days and never left except for a beach swim. We swam in amazing pool, played games, watched movies, napped in hammock. Everything is taken care of!
Beds are super comfy. Towels lush. Baths great. AC lovely. I love the open air aspect and THE VIEW!!!
And best of all, we got to meet Kelly, the owner, and Modesta, who was the interim caretaker last year. Cannot wait to return for a third time."
