We thoroughly enjoyed our 18 days at Villa Malibu on Playa Potrero. This was our first visit to Costa Rica and we were hoping to find a beach where we could spend a lot of time swimming, walking and relaxing after a long winter. We could not have been happier with our choice of location and accommodations.
Our typical day consisted of a long walk on the beach, several swims in the ocean, each one followed by a dip in our own personal salt water pool, and a late breakfast or late lunch at one of the wonderful nearby restaurants. Our days would wind down with sunset drinks by the pool or on the beach, then sleeping to the sound of the waves. We took a few excursions but enjoyed Playa Potrero more than any other place.
The apartment is small, very clean, nicely appointed and well equipped. The grounds are beautiful and meticulously maintained. Laura was there for our first week to help orient us and always ready to join us for a walk and swim or poolside conversation. The caretakers, Eddy and Angela, kept a low profile but graciously allowed us to engage them in conversation with our limited Spanish when we did see them.
In our opinion, Playa Potrero is the best beach in Guanacaste and Villa Malibu is the best place on the beach!
