  • Wonderful Stay

    "My partner and I stayed at the condo for 10 days. We loved the accommodations. The kitchen had everything we needed, the bedrooms were spacious, the living room was comfortable. We lived in the infinity pool (or the ocean), which was always clean. The on site security was a plus, seeing that we had a rental car. The beaches and shopping were minutes away by car. We had never stayed off resort before, but this location made it easy. We were able to visit many beaches, take day trips, and come back to "home base". The freedom was great. Residents of the local town were very friendly, knowing more Spanish would've been useful, but we got by. We met great people at the condo. Costa Rica is so beautiful it's breathtaking. We saw howler monkeys, iguana, various birds and geckos - and this was all at the condo. We felt safe here (always at the top of my list when I travel), in the condo, the community and the country in general. Dealing with Steven was very easy. He responded quickly to our emails and provided us with everything we needed to know about the condo and the area we were in. It really is ideal for a vacation spot, you can stay in the area and visit the local beaches and restaurants, or travel on day trips to other destinations. There was so much to do and see, we didn't get it all in this one trip. We did shop for groceries as well and cook our own food, the local grocery stores have everything you need. We would indeed like to return to this condo and continue our Costa Rican adventure! Thank you Steven for the opportunity."

  • Wonderful Stay!!!

    "We visited Costa Rica last year and decided we would like to visit again. We came across this place and decided to give it a try. The property exceeded our expectations from the pictures. It is beautiful and peaceful. The Property Manager was very helpful and the check in/out process was quick and smooth. Loved having 24-hour security, they walk the entire property constantly 24-hours. Vince, the owner, gave us so much information, there was little left to research. It was nice to come back to a beautiful, clean, and comfortable home away from home after our touring, diving/snorkeling adventures. We would stay here again in a heartbeat and would highly recommend it to anyone."

  • Lost in Paridise

    "Wow! Wow! Wow! What a great vacation. The Villa at Playa Ocotal was outstanding! Sunsets on the lenai were breath taking!!! The villa was well equipped for our stay and the staff was more than accommodating. It was cleaned daily during our stay including rooms cleaned, beds made, fresh towels the hot tube and pool both cleaned. The staff prepared three delicious meals per day along with snacks and cocktails. The bar was staffed daily until 8p, which made it even easier to kick back and relax, wink. When they say all inclusive they really mean all inclusive! Everything on property was included and taken care of for my party. Off property The owner and her team did everything they could to set up our stay including booking of all off property excursions and making sure we had transportation to and from. Excursions included horsebacking,zip lining, sunset yacht cruise, hot springs swim, water slides and shopping in Coco. This was hands down one of my groups best vacations and all of us recommend you consider Villa Ocotal when booking your Vacation in Costa Rica."

  • Our favorite place to stay

    "Jeanie and I have been coming to Costa Rica almost every year for the past decade to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We have stayed at a number of Guanacaste resorts and visited several others. Ocotal is our favorite beach, and Los Almendros de Ocotal is our favorite place to stay. This year we stayed at a condo on the front row that had excellent reviews posted on VRBO. The reviews were right on the mark. Our condo was well equipped and only a 2-3 minute walk to the beach. An earlier review listed a number of local restaurants. We are not familiar with all of the restaurants listed, but we agree with the reviewer's overall assessment...we too have never had a bad meal in Costa Rica. In Ocotal, both Father Rooster's and Ocotal Beach Resort are excellent restaurants. The restaurant at Ocotal Beach Resort is up on a bluff, and may be the best place in the area to watch Costa Rica's beautiful sunsets. Ocotal Beach and the rear terrace of our condo also provided excellent sunset views. Picante's is another Ocotal restaurant that offers good food and beautiful ocean views. Our rental unit had a nice BBQ unit out front. We purchased charcoal, lighter fluid and fresh seafood in Coco. We grilled the fish and enjoyed a fantastic home cooked meal. At night the air-conditioned bedrooms are very comfortable. However, our condo had ceiling fans and secure screen doors that enabled Jeanie and I to go to sleep listening to the ocean surf and enjoying the comfortable breeze that comes off the ocean in the evening."
