  • 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."

  • The best

    "Our family of 6 stayed at this villa for one week. Verda was wonderful to deal with - very responsive and warm. The villa itself is stunning. The decor beautiful and tasteful. There was enough space that 6 adults were able to feel privacy and not be in each others face all the time! There was a welcome basket when we arrived that included hand made coasters with our names on them as well as a bib - Verda had remembered that my daughter is 28 weeks pregnant! Little touches like that were evident throughout the villa - beautiful pictures, lovely glass art, bright and cheery. The view from the outside living space is spectacular and we spent most of our time out there if not at the pool just several steps away where there were very few people, if any. The beach is kind of small, and not the most lovely beach I've ever seen, and its a bit of a hike back up ( some of our gang drove down) however that was not an issue for us as we were happy to hang out at the pool and outside the villa. The kitchen is extremely well equipped - we used the BBQ several times and had lovely meals in the beautiful dining room. All appliances were great and there was a ton of space. I would highly recommend this property!!"

  • Villas Las Olas

    "Overall good experience. Friendly and helpful agents. Wished layout of place was better as no living area on first floor; not very open. Beautiful view 2nd floor. Biggest issue and danger is the steep entrance to driveway/ garage; scraped bumper few times. Problems with shower temperatures and water pressure, but willing to have it fixed. Miss heat in hot tub/ jacuzzi. Main reason we stayed here was access to beach and fair price. Must do Rincon La Vieja Volcano Tour recommended by owners; best deal ever!"

  • 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!"
