  • Pura Vida!!

    "I wanted to start off by thanking you for sharing your lovely home and wonderful staff with others. Your home is gorgeous, the view is spectacular, and it is beautifully decorated containing all the comforts needed to make it feel like a home. Mariela and Kojak made sure that every last detail was taken care of and that everything ran smoothly. Xinia is an amazing cook and such a pleasure to work with. (we wanted to take her back with us in our suitcase) Marita did a great job keeping everything clean and tidy and it was extra special to have our clothes washed daily. I LOVE IT that we didn't take dirty laundry back home. Ping watched over us and made us feel a little safer, knowing we weren't completely alone. I wanted to thank you for putting together such an informative binder for all your guests with important information and great recommendations. I also wanted to share our favorite tours/experiences with others that we personally think should not be missed. The Borinquen Resort offered a great excursion including horseback riding, zip lining/canopy tour and the mud bath/thermal pool experience. This tour makes for a GREAT day full of fun and adventure. We also greatly enjoyed a horseback riding tour we took from Hacienda Guachepelin to two gorgeous waterfalls (Las Chorreras and Catarate Oropendola) My three sons LOVED jumping off the cliffs into the cool and refreshing water the waterfalls empty into. Lastly, my nature loving boys got a kick out of our "jungle cruise" at Palo Verde. It was very neat to get up close and personal with the white-faced monkeys and crocodiles! Our family had the vacation of a lifetime and your home and staff really helped to make it happen! PURA VIDA!!!"

  • perfect!

    "Villa Mirador is exactly as described—if not better. Mary-Ellen, the owner, is absolutely amazing. She was extremely helpful, organized, prompt, friendly and passionate about her properties. The on-site manager, Daniel, was very helpful as well. He does not speak English—so be prepared if you do not speak Spanish. Just ask Mary-Ellen questions ahead of time. The house has everything you should need—even a crib for our little one. The views and pool were amazing! We spent several late afternoons relaxing in the pool and patio area. There were (3) bedrooms downstairs and (1) upstairs. Air conditioner worked great in the rooms; however, there is no ac in the main living areas. The house is designed to be an open concept which for the most part does not require ac in the living areas. This particular home is probably the smallest in Samara Reefs; however, it is off on its own providing you plenty of privacy. If you need a little more room (5th bedroom) I would contact Mary-Ellen about her other property in Samara Reefs. Daniel actually took us over to view it and it was amazing. Very large pool—you could do laps in it and the house is a little bigger. Villa Mirador was perfect for our party of 6 adults and 2 kids. Samara is a very nice beach town with friendly people and plenty to do and several great restaurants. I would recommend a car—we picked up our car rental from the airport. With traffic it is 1 hour and 40 mins. Without traffic we did it in 1 hour 15 mins; however, I did the drive 4 times in a week so I was very familiar with the roads. Overall this property is truly amazing. The only small little issue we had was the light drapes in the bedrooms. Our 3 and 1 year old woke up super early each morning which caused for some long days! I would absolutely come back to Samara Reefs and stay at Villa Mirador again."

  • Amazing Property!!!

    "Our family stayed in this two bedroom condo for 10 nights in February. The condo is beautifully decorated and well equiped - it lacks nothing. It far exceeded our expectations. The pool and grounds were always maintained. Our children (15 and 10) loved the facilities and the close proximity to the beach. This corner unit was quiet and felt very private (for a condo). It has a beautiful patio/lanai with easy access to the pool and great views of the ocean. I highly recommend this property and cannot wait to come back."

  • Simply Exceptional!

    "My wife and I honeymooned here and I must say the Villa and staff were simply amazing. We have traveled to this part of Costa Rica a few times before but this was the best trip and vacation rental we have stayed in by far. The Villa is in a great location, just a short walk to the beach and has everything one could possibly need and much more. I just can't say enough good things about the place, we will be back next year without a doubt. Pura Vida!"
