"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"

"5 adults and 2 young children spent a week in this condo and the accommodations were superb. We enjoyed the ocean view, the nature right outside our door, and the amenities of the resort. The owner went beyond what we expected in helping us get comfortable and was available for assistance. The free shuttles to the pool & ocean area were easy to arrange through the concierge. In all activities we did, inside & outside the resort, the service was superb. I'd highly recommend this condo & resort to anyone looking for the comfort of a home while on vacation."

"Our stay was peaceful, relaxing, comfortable and there is everything you need in this condo. Comfortable beds and bathrooms were very spacious. If you are looking for a place away from the crazy tourist towns and tons of people this is where you should go! The restaurant was good and staff extremely friendly. The pool was extremely clean, deep enough for jumping in and having a great time. The deck in the condo is very large comfortable enough for at least six people. The view of the forest, hills and ocean are great! There are three beaches very close to the condo, one walking distance and the others 2 to 3 miles away. Our favorite was Playa Minus great beach and surf."

"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!"
