  • Our Vacation to Heaven

    "Casa Costa Palmera is a little slice of Heaven. Our family had the best time on this amazing beach and in this amazing house. We hired Maria to cook our meals (the best decision ever) and she is an amazing cook. We also used the food stocking service (another perfect decision) and Alyssa brought us our food so we didn't have to waste time at the grocery store. Orlando and Maria are absolutely amazing, kind, and wonderful people. They made us feel welcomed and like royalty. The beach is absolutely splendid and we spent every day swimming or body boarding in the surf. We walked on the beach every morning and were on the beach every evening till sunset. We went snorkeling at Playa Carbon as well which is something that you definitely shouldn't miss when you visit. Alyssa, our concierge, helped set up several tours and trips for us including ziplining and fishing. She was so amazing to work with. We cannot wait to go back! This was the best vacation our family has ever been on! Thank you so much Alyssa, Maria, and Orlando!"

  • Casa Mandarina and Amigo Realty Top Notch!

    "We are terribly sad to see this week come to an end. There is so much left to do so we must plan our next visit. I think Casa Mandarina would be an excellent place for a crowd. Marcia is an amazing cook! Authentic Costa Rican cuisine everyday, breakfast lunch dinner, when we weren't out on the best adventures, organized by Marjolet! Many thanks to Marjolet for getting us on personalized tours with Don Grant, the owner of Get Lost In Costa Rica (# 1 in Trip Advisor for Costa Rica). Now that we have been here, our next trip will be even better! Turtle tour, River Tour, Zip lining, horseback riding, waterslide, mud bath, swim in natural hot springs heated by volcano, and endless fun and relaxation at Casa Mandarina and Playa Grande beach! This is our last day. After our breakfast, we walked the beach and saw where a giant Leatherback turtle came ashore over night to nest and return to the sea. Then noticed a baby Leatherback trying to make its way to sea. What an experience for the kids and us, right out the back door of Casa Mandarina! Thanks Nova, Marjolet, Marcia and Oscar! Barton Family, North Carolina USA"

  • Amazing vacation!

    "We recently came back from 10 days at Casa Muy Grande. I feel like one of our group said it best, he felt like it wasn't a vacation but a way of life. The house was very comfortable. We had a group of 9 from ages 3 to 80 and all felt at home. The pool was just right for our group as it provided a safe place for the kids to play before we headed out for excursions. The walk to the beach was very short and led to a great non crowded beach perfect for playing in the waves or watching the sunset. We all fell in love with the Playa Grande area. It was very safe and an easy walk to the "grocery store" Wil-Mart for necessities (and some of my favorite coffee and sunscreen which I am still using at home!) There are several restaurants easy walk or drive that were fantastic. The caretakers were lovely and helped us get some coconuts out of the trees in the yard to drink the coconut water. We heard and saw howler monkeys on several occasions in the yard...awesome!"

  • Excellent Stay!

    "We really enjoyed our stay at this house. Very comfortable and had most amenities that we needed. Nir was so helpful and really nice. When we had a problem with the refrigerator he had it fixed as soon as possible and supplied us with a cooler until it was fixed. It was just a short walk to the beautiful beach and the pool was refreshing when we were at the house. This was our first time in Costa Rica and we had an awesome vacation. I would highly recommend it! An overall great experience and we would stay here again when we return."
