"My husband and I recently visited Costa Rica and stayed at this BEAUTIFUL villa. We have never stayed in anything this nice before, not even on our honeymoon. The villa is very spacious, yet the layout is perfect and has that "homey" feel to it. Our favorite part about the villa was the infinity pool. It was so nice to have our private pool when we didn't feel like going to the public one or the beach. The Villa has surround sound speakers so you can plug in a phone and play music throughout the house which is awesome. The beds were extremely comfortable because they had memory foam mattresses (at least the master bedroom did). We loved having a kitchen so we could cook meals on days that we didn't feel like dining out. The property is extremely clean and there is a cleaning lady that comes every other day. The concierge (property managers) were very helpful, they helped book our tours and get us taxis when we went into town. We chose the sunset cruise and the water rafting tours which both exceeded our expectations.
The property is located in a gated community which is on the same grounds as the Westin hotel, so you have access to the beach, pools and restaurants. There is a free shuttle that can take you to the beach or you can enjoy a nice 2 mile walk down to these amenities.
The location is perfect, close to other beaches such as playa avellanas and playa grande which are great for surfing and it is about 15 minutes from Tamarindo which has shopping, restaurants and nightlife. Just past flamingo beach there is a place called Las Catalinas which is a beautiful outdoor restaurant with swings, hammocks, couches, lawn chairs, corn hole and they serve great cocktails and food. Another place we enjoyed for lunch was Lolas, which was located on playa avellanas. I enjoyed a few beers and read my book in a hammock while watching my husband surf. So relaxing!
I would recommend this property to anyone! My husband and I enjoyed our alone time and having this place to ourselves,however we both agreed that it would have been great to have a few other couples with us b/c it was spacious enough for a big group.We hope to get the chance to come back to this beautiful villa again!"

"We stayed in Playa Flamingo for 7 days with 17 family members and wrapped up our trip at El Destino for the last 3 days with only 7 of us. We had 4 adults, 2 toddlers and an infant and this condo was perfect. It was huge and very child friendly. The owners have stocked it with everything you'll ever need and the staff are friendly and very helpful. It is within walking distance of several great restaurants and a grocery store. Chris was extremely helpful and provided us with a recommendation list that was spot on. I can't say enough positive things about this place! We will be back!"

"Villa Serena was the perfect setting for our wedding this past New Years Eve. It was truly a fairytale place and our family enjoyed themselves immensely at this dreamlike location. This Tuscan style Villa is absolutely breathtaking with impeccably landscaped gardens in a very secluded area right in front of the ocean with the most spectacular sunsets right on the water. We will have wonderful memories for the rest of our lives.
Modesto and Marcia were extremely kind and helpful. They're a wonderful, friendly and lovely couple.
Many thanks Denisse, this was the perfect setting to ring in the New Year and start our new lives together.
Jim & Evelyn"
