Recent Malpais reviews

  • Inspiring

    "After our visit to Casa Luna Luz, all we could think about was how to replicate the outdoor living space at home. All we are missing is the ocean and beautiful rainforest scenery. We spent most of our time at the house enjoying the covered outdoor living area, dining table, and sundeck/pool. When we did venture inside to cook or sleep, it was comfortable and clean, and nice to have all the dishes and utensils provided. We rented a Daihatsu Bego 4x4 from Budget, and it was sufficient for climbing the road to the house, and navigating the bumps along the roads to Tambor and Montezuma. Traveling in September or October will result in many of the restaurants being closed, but there were enough open to have variety on a short 5 day trip. Malpais is a great place to unwind and enjoy Costa Rica. The people are friendly and helpful, but not pushy. We would recommend renting this home, or any Casas De Soleil property."

  • Wonderful Costa Rica Adventure

    "My wife and I spent a week at this beautiful villa with another couple to experience a less touristy area of Costa Rica. The house is great and everyone associated with it were very friendly and helpful. Bill turned us on to a couple of sights that we never would have known existed without him. While staying there we hiked, ziplined in Montezuma, Snorkeled at Tortuga Island, spent a day on the beach watching surfers and working on our tans. We saw monkeys every day either at the house or while we were out. we saw dolphins, turtles, anteaters, iguanas and more varieties of birds than I can name. If you ask if we enjoyed it......I have 6132 pictures that say yes we did."

  • Worth every penny.

    "Villa Katino is truly a gem! It's location up on the hill is amazing and our jaws literally hit the floor when we arrived. The ride up is indeed steep/bumpy and would do best with a 4x4 or ATV, but the privacy and view are SO worth it. Tino, not to mention, is an excellent host and very accommodating. He picked us up from our previous lodge so all of our bags could make it up the hill and he even arranged us an ATV rental in town when his was out of service and let us take it over the Montezuma for a few days (and even had a friend come pick it up so we didn't have to drive it back over!) We were so amazed at the generosity of the people involved with Villa Katino, we would come back for that alone. The rooms are spacious, clean, and the pool is fantastic. Even on the crummier days weather wise, it was amazing to sit on the couch and watch the lightening storms. Don't think twice, just book it."

  • The most peaceful place

    "I stayed at this lodge for a very short period, but I did not want to leave. It is the most peaceful place to stay at. Granted that I was there during the low season, but I also know that Mal Pais doesn't get flooded with tourists as other towns in the area, so it's pretty quiet with rock-free beaches. The lodge itself is very clean and the open concept is just a unique and beautiful feature of it, making it aesthetically very pleasing and enjoyable. It has all the necessary furniture, appliances (even a blender)...the owners are very friendly and warm people!"
