Recent Guanacaste reviews

  • Vacationing in Costa Rica was a trip of a life time! Specically, Playa Conchal , Guanacaste!

    "We were a family of 6 adults visiting Playa Conchal during the wet season and lived very comfortably in this beautiful, clean 3 bedroom condo. The cozy furniture was very accommodating for us including VERY comfortable beds.The spacious kitchen was well stocked with the necessary cooking utensils including a breakfast bar. The spacious balcony provided us with views of the gorgeous golf course, ocean bay and hilly landscape. The condo with free wifi, sits high on a hill a few miles from the beach but easily attainable by calling the office for a shuttle. Every driver was so friendly sharing interesting facts of the local culture, plant and animal life, being very accommodating to stop the shuttle for snapshots of the howler monkeys, iguanas, views of the bay, or beautiful trees/flowers which painted the path to the beach. Your drop off point was in front of the beach club which boarders the fairly secluded beautiful beach. The beach club provided you with locker/shower rooms, a spa and workout facility, 2 pools and the outdoor eloquent yet causal restaurant, our go to place when making it a day at the beach (gourmet meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner, very reasonably priced) and an upstairs bar overlooking the treetops and ocean bay. The weather was ideal the wk we stayed as it was usually sunny and in the mid 80s during the day (storms at late afternoons) being ideal for basking in the sun on nice lounge chairs, taking walks on the sandy beach, swimming in the translucent turquoise water, kayaking, and paddle boarding all of which are provided through the beach club. While on the beach one has access to massages given for $20.00 an hr under the shade of the trees. A must have if you enjoy massages!! This lovely condo unit also has access to a secluded small pool, patio area and barbecue for a more quiet setting . I highly recommend hiring a driver. We had Dee (Ditier)recommended by our condo's owner, Tom. Dee, a very polite English speaking man who has obvious pride in his country and people, was so accommodating to our needs, desires with great suggestions. I pay tribute to Tom, a fantastic man who helped in planning out our trip. Tom was so easily accessible via email and by phone. He was informative and gave us a preview of what we may expect via pictures sent to us. What to bring: wash machine detergent, deet, day pack for daily outings, causual clothes with hiking footwear, USA currency excepted everywhere. Tap water very safe to drink!"

  • This is it, no need to keep looking...

    "We stayed in the mountain area of Monteverde before coming to this beach side villa for the second half of our wonderful Costa Rica vacation. We stayed here for 4 nights. Playa Ocotal is a quiet, uncrowded beach, yet less than10 minutes to the hustle and bustle of Playa Coco, which is very touristy. We were so glad to be at Playa Ocotal, especially in this particular unit. It is clean, and well appointed. It has a beautiful view of the ocean, and is only a few steps away from both the pool and the beach. We think it's the best unit in the Los Almendros complex. The "Property Description" is accurate. Our entire family, with daughters age 15 and 12, enjoyed our stay tremendously. The rental arrangements went very smoothly. Scott is very attentive and replies immediately to emails. This was our first trip to Costa Rica. We definitely plan on coming back. When we do, we hope this villa will still be in the VRBO listing. We have rented through VRBO for over 12 years. Our family highly recommends this villa. Another recommendation, especially for those first time vacationers to Costa Rica, is the book "Costa Rica, the Complete Guide" by James Kaiser. Good history of the country, insightful information of the different areas/regions, good travel tips, and great recommendations on restaurants (that's how we found great places to eat)."

  • Paradise on the Beach

    "The Blue Villa was unreal. The location is right on the south end of Playa Hermosa Beach and is absolutely beach front, best sunset views we've ever had. The house fit our 8 guest perfectly (4 adults and 4 kids 7-13 yrs old). I could not have designed a better layout if I tried. We spent most of the time on the back deck and in the water. One unexpected surprise was Freddie the property caretaker. He lives right onsite and was invaluable in helping us with everything from showing us how all the appliances work to helping us fix our paddle board pump. The whole stay was perfect and we will be back again."

  • Five Star Paradise

    "This is a wonderful property in a perfect location. Above all the staff are wonderful and very helpful from the time you arrive until your departure. The rooms are beautiful and the entire place is well taken care of. Located across from the Beach Club, the beach is pristine with a beautiful pool and food/ and drink to help you enjoy each day. We walked everywhere, either to the stores, restaurants or bars and just fell in love with Tamarindo! I highly recommend you give this place a try and discover for yourselves how wonderful you'll feel after a vacation here!"
