Guestbook comments from the manager

We have received the following comment via e-mails...

_"Now that we're safely back home, we wanted to say a big thank you for our stay at Villa Serena. We were all most impressed upon arrival; the stunning views, the lovely pool and the luxurious bedrooms and bathrooms.

The staff was all lovely and very welcoming and really made the holiday special.

Maria Sabatto gave us great advice every day and helped us book just about everything. We hired chef Sol Marioni for several days and the food was absolutely delicious - a real highlight, and the best we ate on our 3-week holiday in Costa Rica.

The massages that we had at the villa were also excellent. Mariel the private yoga teacher was inspirational.

Being right there on the beachfront made the vacation spectacular.

It was our first visit to Villa Serena but it wont be our last, we all loved it and hope to be back.

Again thank you for setting up for us the most creative and beautiful tropical Christmas tree"

Magnificent!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Serena is simply exquisite! The property is truly magical and the staff is very kind and always ready to help you with a smile and con mucho gusto!

The town of Tamarindo has a lot to offer, but very seldom you would want to leave your own paradise…

I highly recommend this Villa, perfect location, with the best part of Costa Rica right in your own backyard.

Unsurpassable in every detail, we can’t wait to go back!

Pura vida!

PARADISE!!

  • 5 of 5

Stunning property! We have been there twice and we had the best time.

The house is beautifully designed and decorated. Great swimming pool! The tropical garden takes you to the beach in front of the house, which is very quiet and private and has amazing natural pools. We had the most beautiful walks and sunsets...and a lot of "magic" nights...Wonderful memories!!

Best location in Tamarindo! Cannot wait to go back...

Costa Rican Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Serena several times and it is by far, our favorite place to vacation. The house is stunningly beautiful, comfortable and very accommodating. Many designer details. It exceeded our expectations in every way. The beach is one of the most beautiful ones in the world (we have been to many!). We stayed there with young children but I could also see going back there for a romantic vacation. There are also many beautiful beaches very close to this one for surfing or just enjoying a beautiful day at the beach. We definitely look forward to coming back. I highly recommend Villa Serena.
