Las Casas Costa Rica A Caribbean Luxury Jungle Retreat

Las Casas is a magical place !

  • 5 of 5

Las Casas does not disappoint. The property is huge, its like having an entire resort to yourself. When you first arrive you feel totally blown away by how beautiful it is. I have stayed at Las Casas twice. The first time with 6 adults and 5 kids. The second time with 8 adults and 8 kids (ages 6,6,5,5,3,3,2 and1 ).

Both trips we had Asenthe cook breakfast and dinner for the group. Asenthe is amazing. She will plan the meals, shop, cook and clean up. Her cooking is great, she makes the best mojito in the world and the care she gives to you while staying at the house is like she is taking care of family.

The sleeping rooms are cozy, each with a comfortable bed, clean bathroom, hot water, and A/C for good sleeping. 2 units have loft areas with 2 beds which is great for families. Each unit has a porch area and you can see parrots and Toucans from the screened in sitting area.

The pool is a great place to hang around, swim, do yoga and have a cocktail. Its distance to the main house is just right. Making the main house a quite, cozy lounge area while the kids are enjoying themselves at the pool.

While visiting the area we visited the Jaguar Center, went zip lining, visited many beaches and did some snorkeling, went on a boat tour, to a yoga class, out to Refugio for dinner (so yummy), the brewery in Puerto for delicious beer, rented bikes and cruised the streets.

I highly recommend Las Casas and the Caribbean coast to those looking for an off the beaten path Costa Rica vacation.

Spectacular property, location and service

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed by the property. It is a lot bigger than what we expected. It is hard to be aware of the limits of the property. Rooms were large and comfortable. It has three “ranchos” where the adults, the teens and the children could gather. The pool is gorgeous and clean and the service included with the property was very helping and polite. We hired them to arrange dinners and save us the hustle of having to go downtown on busy dates. The beaches near the property are great and the nearby Puerto Viejo is lots of fun.

Best Family Vacation - didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with 2 other families and stayed 8 days (not long enough!). We were a total of 6 adults and 6 kids (two 7 yr olds, two 6 yr olds, and two 4 yr olds). Honestly, the pictures don't do this place justice. All of our jaws dropped when we arrived. The place is far more spread out than we had imagined, making us feel like we had our own private resort. To top it off, the staff was amazing. We feel in love with Asenath, who along with Angela does the cleaning and cooking (if you want). We hired them to cook every breakfast and dinner for us, and once again they went above and beyond. The meals were not only amazing but less expensive than if we had eaten out - it was the icing on the cake for our trip. We were greeted each morning with a huge smile and a cup of coffee in hand for each of us. She arranged all of our meals around our schedules and to our likings (we menu planned with Paola when we arrived). The grounds keeper cut open fresh coconuts for everyone and there was a freshly picked hanging of bananas for us to enjoy during our stay. We absolutely enjoyed everything about our stay and honestly can't say enough great things about it. The area also offered tons to do. The Jaguar Rescue Center is a must do, we (including 7 and 4.5 yr old) enjoyed the ChocoRart tour, Punta Uva was a great kids beach for swimming, we introduced snorkeling to the kids (have to hit it on a calm day though) at the beach just south of Punta Uva, we all went ziplining, swimming with/on the horses at Caribe horse riding club, kayaking with Nature Riders, and surfing (can be rough with lots of rips, so just need to go at the right time of year, which we hit perfectly). Can't wait to go back!!!

An experience of a lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

We, an elderly couple, had invited our son and daughter with respective family to celebrate Christmas and New Year together in Costa Rica. In all we stayed two weeks at the property. We were in all 11 persons between 5 and 73 years old and all of us really enjoyed the place, which has lots to offer independently of age.

We had of course studied the prospect of the facility, but each of us were stunned when arriving, it was to good to be true!

In addition to offering excellent accomodation to everybody, we had all the facilities we could think of in respect of relaxing, preparing meals in two different places, pool and game areas, a wonderful park with many interesting observations of plants, birds and animals, and last, but not least, a fantastic staff that did everything for making our stay an experience of a lifetime.

So Wonderful, We Were Sad to Leave...

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 just spent the New Year holiday at Las Casas and had the experience of a lifetime. The property is breathtaking and extremely well-cared for with more room than we knew what to do with. The photos, though beautiful, do not do it justice. The staff was friendly and gracious and went above and beyond to make our stay absolutely perfect.

Our first morning, the caretaker pointed out howler monkeys in the trees, showed us a sleeping sloth and then walked us around the property, sharing the fruit of the many fruit trees, many of which we had never seen or tasted before. Many mornings he cut down coconuts and opened them expertly with his machete so we could enjoy coconut water right out of the coconut!

Each morning the housekeeper would have the coffee ready and would prepare a delicious breakfast and one day made us the best Caribbean Chicken for dinner! She was so sweet and wonderful she became part of our family!

The buildings/modules were extraordinary. The bedrooms were lovely and comfortable, each with its own terrace and bathroom. The main living module quickly became one of our favorites with a wonderful, well-appointed kitchen, huge dining area, spacious living area with tons of seating and hammocks. This became family central and was ideal for planning our day, relaxing and spending time together.

The pool area was another in which we spent much of our time. The pool was beautiful and well-maintained... and always seemed the perfect temperature. This module also had a large, well-appointed kitchen with outdoor grill, another bathroom, huge dining area and spacious living area with lot of seating and hammocks.

We didn't spend much time in the game room module, although we always intended to but after a day of activities, dinner and swimming, we were ready to sprawl out in the main living area and relax together before going to bed. However, this module is very well-equipped with ping pong, pool table, foosball, TV and lots of comfortable seating.

I can't say enough... It was a true privilege to stay here and the staff made it a very special experience for each of us. The activities, shops and restaurants the property manager recommended were absolutely perfect for our family. And the location was ideal; close to town and beautiful beaches but far enough away to feel like a tropical escape.

None of us were ready to leave and were saddened to say goodbye to the amazing staff and stunning property. Until next time!

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 9 wonderful days at Las Casas. The compound is composed of 5 beautiful, open wooden buildings set in an amazingly lush tropical park ( it's too big to call it a garden ). The staff is professional and friendly and always ready to take care of you : finding a car, organizing a tour, booking a massage... The food is EXCELLENT . Hated leaving, just hope we can go back soon !
