Recent Malpais reviews

  • Paradise with phenomenal views!

    "Recently back from a 2 week stay in Costa Rica where we had the pleasure of staying for the first half of our week in Malpais at Vista Villa Real. The view and accommodations were gorgeous! There were 14 of us and the 5 bedrooms and the cottage on the property was more than enough room for all of us. There was not a disappointing view from the property and all of the bedrooms had spectacular views (and several bathrooms had exceptional views as well!). (no view from the cottage however we had children staying in there so it wasn't as important to them). We spent most of our time in the huge outdoor living space. In the mornings you could hear the howler monkeys throughout the jungle and see and hear the variety of birds. The kitchen was fairly well equipped and we made several of our meals at the house. The main living area in the house is simple, nothing too special but most of us utilized the outside space, which as I said was pretty exceptional! Unexpected nice surprise was a family that lived on the property who kept good care of the outside and cleaned up after us on the inside as well. They were there to help with any maintenance issues. They were not an imposition at all. We all felt very safe. The house is located about 10 minutes or so away from stores (up a steep bumpy mountain) so we needed to plan accordingly for groceries. I especially want to mention Soraya, the property manager, as she did an excellent job in setting up car rentals, shuttles , ATV rentals and picking up some groceries for us prior to our arrival. She then also helped us with a bit of an emergency situation we encountered with medications and doctors. Mary's restaurant was wonderful and I had the best breakfast burrito at Banana Beach Beachfront Grill which was one of my best meals in Malpais (the tuna burger was very good there as well). We loved Montezuma and from there we did snorkeling at Tortuga Island and deep sea fishing as well. Also the waterfall hike. Several of the children got sick while we were there and hanging out at the house was not and inconvenience, lots of space to recline, relax and read! Maybe one recommendation would be to have beach chairs and umbrella on property for use because we were such a large group we weren't always able to get chairs and umbrella's on the beach. I would love to return to Vista Villa Real in the future and I would definitely recommend especially if you are traveling with a large group like ours!"

  • Haus mit der besten Aussicht!

    "Wo soll man beginnen diesen Aufenthalt zu beschreiben? Bei der Vorfreude, der Ankunft, dem Haus, dem Grundstück, welches ein Mix aus Dschungel und einzigartiger Aussicht ist, oder dem Gastgeber? Beginnen wir beim Letzteren. Tino, ein deutscher Auswanderer, lebt seit 15 Jahren in Costa Rica, spricht fliessend Spanisch und Englisch und hat uns ein paar Tage vor unserem Aufenthalt per E-Mail kontaktiert. Wir haben unsere Telefonnummern ausgetauscht und uns fortan über WhatsApp verständigt. Bei unserer Ankunft wurden wir morgens an der Bäckerei in Mal Pais, wie vereinbart von Tino mit seinem Geländewagen abgeholt. Die etwa 15 Minütige Fahrt zum Haus ist sehr aufschlussreich, da Tino einem gleich die Gegend erklärt und einem sehr gute Tipps gibt wo man am besten Einkaufen, abendessen oder ausgehen kann und welche Strände man unbedingt aufsuchen sollte. Tino hat uns während unseres Aufenthalts zwei Quads geliehen mit denen man die Gegend bestens erkunden kann. Das Haus selber liegt direkt auf einem Hügel. Dort ist man völlig unter sich und hat seine absolute Privatsphäre. Die Aussicht ist die schönste die ich je in Costa Rica gesehen habe. Man schaut über die Dächer des Dschungels die Küste entlang, tief in die Weiten des blauen Ozeans. Atemberaubend! Sei es nun bei Tag oder beim Sonnenuntergang. Man kann sich einfach nicht satt sehen! Zum Glück hat man dieselbe Aussicht auch vom Pool/Hot Tub aus, wodurch einem nichts entgeht. Des Weiteren bietet das Haus eine voll ausgestattete Küche. Gekocht wird am Gasherd oder Grill. Das untere Schlafzimmer hat eine Klimaanlage. Man betritt dieses Zimmer durch das Badezimmer. Die Dusche bietet einen genialen Blick in den Dschungel. Morgens kann man während des morgendlichen Duschens den Brüllaffen beim Frühstück zuschauen. Das obere und grössere Schlafzimmer hat ein Himmelbett mit Mückennetz und einen Balkon, von dem man den gleichen atemberaubenden Blick geniessen kann. Es fehlt einem an gar nichts und wenn, dann ist Tino sofort an Ort und Stelle und hilft einem aus. Die eine Woche die wir in der Villa Katino verbracht haben war eine der Besten in meinem Leben. So entspannt war ich selten. Wir werden auf jeden Fall wieder kommen! Danke Dir für Alles Tino! Pura Vida!"

  • Incredible!

    "The Almond house was an incredible home to stay in during our vacation. The house itself is perfectly set up and the pool is the best. The views are amazing and we truly enjoyed spending time there. We stayed for 10 days and the staff and grounds keeper were very attentive and helpful when we needed something. The water went out one night and the next morning by the time we woke up Kaun Carlos already had it fixed! We felt very safe and secure. We didn't want to leave! We would highly recommend this home for a couple or small family, it would even work for a small group of friends. Thanks again for the stay it was the perfect time spot for our home base!! We can't wait to come back."
