  • This IS the place to stay!

    "We stayed a week March '16. It is hotter than the hubs of he-double-hockey-sticks, so be prepared! The property has security, very well manicured grounds, is small and quaint, off the beaten path, literally a few steps from the pool, and 1 minute walk through the locked gate to the ocean! The accommodations are great - private laundry rm - soap included, 2 single beds in one bedroom, a queen bed in the master with a master bath. Living room, dining and kitchen are spacious and have all that you need. 2nd bath off the living space that the teenagers used. Lots of towels! Kitchen is well stocked - dish soap included. There is a charcoal grill on the patio, but charcoal is more expensive than at home (Minnesota) and the fluid is a gel that is barely sufficient. The only thing I would improve on the property is the outside chairs as they have probably seen their better days, but were still functional for coffee in the a.m. and wine in the p.m. while listening to the ocean. You will see iguanas and geckos on property, as well as some birds. This property is off the beaten path, but still very close to town - 3 min drive. Be sure to hit the farmers market right down the road from the property on Saturday a.m. - pineapple is to die for! Beach walks are a must - go during low tide to check out the tide pools. If you have a car, go to the town of Guatil to check out the hand made pottery (the office can direct you) - 1st house on the left in town is Edwin - he is fantastic! He will give you a full tour and explanation of their pottery making process that has been handed down over generations. He took us to the backyard and there were iguanas in his mango tree as well as a Howler monkey! Awesome! Ask questions! Be sure to check out Tamarindo Beach, the boat tour in the Nat'l Park is worth it - monkeys eating from our hands and on our heads! This is a very popular area for surfing. The roads suck, period. Rent an SUV for sure. Don't eat at the Bocas restaurant - overpriced for what you get. Cooking in the villa saved us a ton of money, but groceries are not as cheap there as they are here. We went to 3 different grocery stores - all were comparable, but be prepared, they aren't like at home! We did have a couple maintenance issues in our villa - staff was prompt in repairing those items. CR is experiencing a major drought, we ran out of water, they bought 10,000 gallons, pump went out, hand repaired, up and running again. Would stay again!"

  • Wonderful condo - perfectly appointed and maintained

    "We loved our Costa Rica experience and one of the best elements was using this condo as a base camp. Comfortable beds, great family room and kitchen. It was perfect for the four of us. Plus we enjoyed an afternoon relaxing in the pool."

  • Great vacation Across From the Beach!

    "We returned to Tamarindo and stayed in this beautiful 2 Br/ 2 Bath condo with everything we needed. It was well stocked and working WiFi throughout, with Cable TV, washer, dryer, dishwasher and beach chairs. The view of the ocean and pool were relaxing! The pool and the grounds were well kept. The town is active during the day, but quiet at night. Everything is in walking distance. We used a shuttle service from the Liberia airport and did not need a car. The beach is amazing and there are many grocery stores and wonderful restaurants. We had no problem with the elevator. Blue Water Properties were very helpful and responsive. I highly recommend Unit 38 and Sunrise!"

  • Relaxing and Beautiful property and villa

    "We had a great time at Hacienda Pinilla. This villa was very clean and spacious. Sitting outside every morning on the upper deck was like sitting in an aviary with all of the different birds that we got to see. The property was very quiet and we felt like we had it all to ourselves. We used the Marriott Property often which has great food and an awesome pool. It was quite a hike from the Hacienda Beach Club for my husband and sons to surf Avellanas every day but they didn't mind too much. We rented golf carts for 2 days which was a lot of fun for exploring the property and looking for wildlife. The only issue we had was very noisy neighbors for 2 very late nights. We addressed this with security and they assured us this wasn't acceptable and wouldn't happen again. Overall, a great trip. We enjoyed this area MUCH more than Tamarindo which has become overgrown and too expensive."
