  • 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!"

  • Fabulous Ladies Getaway

    "We had a WONDERFUL 50th birthday celebration with 16 ladies at Villa Parasio! The property has an amazing view and the set up of the house was perfect for 16 ladies with each bedroom having it's own bathroom. There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out with multiple seating options outside. The breakfast prepared by Rosa was delicious and she changed up the menu almost everyday. The road up to the house is very steep. Highly recommend using a taxi to go up and down the hill unless you are looking for a great workout. Rebecca was great to work with in booking the reservation and very responsive. Marcelo and Fiorella were excellent concierges. They were engaged right after we booked our stay helping with airport transportation, chef services, welcome baskets, restaurant and tour recommendations and coordinating massages for the group. The weather was beautiful in February, not too hot, not too humid (it was, however, very windy). The town of Tamarindo Bay itself was very lovely with plenty of shopping, dining and excursion options. We were a group of sisters, mothers, cousins, friends, aunts, nieces and daughters all looking for a great place to unplug and recharge. The Villa Parasio in Tamarindo was the perfect place to accomplish this."

  • Beautiful villa

    "Me and my son stayed in this villa for one week. The villa was large and absolutely beautiful. I viewed some vacancies in this same development and none showed as well as this one. Lots of nature noises (birds, ducks, monkeys) if you like that. You MUST have a rental/car. Although the Marriott is in proximity, it was nearly impossible to walk to in the sweltering heat...and the beach club is simply out of reach by foot, especially in the heat. And you'll definitely want a car to get in and out of town...or prepare to be gouged by Marriott transfers/taxis. Going in and out of the security gates was a bit of a hassle (I thought), but if you're concerned about your safety, then put this one on the list. No shady characters are getting in there! :-)"

  • Awesome! Right on the beach

    "This condo was amazing. The place was immaculate and kitchen was well-stocked. Better than the pictures! It had underground parking and a really nice pool. We felt very safe there. Tamarindo was a bit sketchy, but this was right out of town. The beach is very rocky so we didn't swim or play in it. We drove to Playa Avellenas and played in great waves there. We will definitely stay here again. It was beautiful."
