"I have just returned from a 2 week holiday at the Villa Catalina. It was the perfect spot for a great family vacation. The house is amazing . It 's lay out allows space for privacy but also relaxing and comfortable communal areas. The house is very well appointed with everything you need. I have been to Costa Rica may times and this for me offered the best combination - beautiful beach with crystal blue water, lots of animal and bird life to watch, security, proximity to grocery stores and interesting restaurants and lots of adventures within easy driving. The property managers- Special Places- were excellent and responded immediately to questions . They also arranged for sunset cruises and adventure tours. I have rented a lot of houses in various places and this was by far the best experience"

"It's always very scary to rent off of photos & connections from the internet, however, we were very happy with our rental of this home. Ron was great from start to finish in ensuring questions were answered promptly, payment transaction went smoothly, house was ready for us upon arrival, and photos were the true representation of what you get upon arrival. There were 11 of us using the property. Had a bit of a hiccup on the blow up bed for the boys, otherwise, great space, great view, easy access to local pool area. The Beach Club was wonderful and as guest of condo we had access to Beach Club pool & spa- awesome!! Felt safe, comfortable and welcomed at Ron's condo. Have recommended it to family in Costa Rica, so I recommend it to you reading this review! :0) Gracias Ron!!"

"Simply beautiful!! Obviously this applies to much in Costa Rica but this condo is just that - simply beautiful. The view is breathtaking !!! The restaurant within the complex (about a 30 second walk from the condo) proved to be excellent and we probably ate almost half of our meals there. The beaches and the area are simply beautiful!! We have stayed here our last 3 trips to CR, so that attests to how much we like it. Undoubtedly the most beautiful beaches and views I've ever seen. This past trip we visited a wider variety of beaches - Pirates, Grande, and Tamarindo. They are great but it's hard to beat Conchal. Extremely private and peaceful - you can be around people only when you want to be around people - like you have the beach all to yourself! We were very impressed with the level of security - within the complex, on the beaches, and in the local towns (Brasilito and Conchal). While security officers were never intrusive and definitely in the background, it added to our peace and contentment to know they were always close. If you want nightlife, parties, people, traffic, and commercialization, this is probably not your place. If you want natural beauty, the most beautiful uncrowded beaches in the world, nature, extremely private and peaceful settings, a condo view and constant other views that could be on postcards, privacy, serenity, and the best "bang for your buck" I've ever found, then this is as good as it gets. We already plan to return next year!"

"Is a unique and too beautiful, the silence and the sound of nature is a perfect combination and this we can add the view to the beach and mountains.
It is a place to relax and enjoy the best beaches (Playa Mina, Playa Pirata, Playa Puerto Viejo) are wonderful places.
The apartment is very comfortable and it has everything you need to have your best vacation.
Actually I have no words to describe how wonderful this place is.
Sandra, thanks for all my family and me are very happy to return again.
The facilities are comfortable, but the only thing we did not like was the treatment of persons working in the bar, always that we asking them for something to eat or a drink they made a bad face and have no desire to work. Except the administrator who makes the pizzas he is a nice person and his attention was very good."
