  • Papagayo Paradise

    "We highly recommend staying at Vista Hermosa if you are planning a stay on the Papagayo Peninsula!! It is beautifully appointed with gorgeous art and stylish furnishings. The main living and dining space has a huge balcony and there are also individual balconies off of each bedroom, an infinity pool right next door - all of which overlook the driving range and ocean. There is also a nicely equipped kitchen and great jetted tub in the master bath! If you are looking for relaxation - this is the place. A typical day was waking up early, driving the golf cart 9 holes looking for monkeys and birds, checking out a beach or two (again with barely a soul in sight!). Back for some breakfast and then going to either the Prieta Beach Club, Four Seasons or Andaz to hang out with a day pass. The Andaz adult pool was awesome, with howlers and white-faced monkeys lazing in the trees around the pool all day, plus a couple of coco-loco tropical drinks and some cevice - can life get any better? If had the kids with us they would have loved the family pools at the Andaz and Four Seasons too. In the afternoon we'd hang out by the condo pool (basically our own pool as nobody else was ever there during our entire stay!). For dinner, sometimes we would grill (we stocked up at the Mercado in Coco and Liberia - we preferred Liberia - both about a 45 minute drive) and sometimes we'd head out to a restaurant (lots of options close by!). We did get some great tenderloin and lamb chops at the butcher (Carnes San Martin - stellar, right by airport in the Solarium development at the back left hand side). The grill is awesome and I was able to sous-vide some ribs and sear them on the grill; sooooo good. Note, a great place to go and see the sunset is the 3rd hole or the Prieta Beach Club. Honestly, the decisions to be made were really about which beach, what drink? It was that good. Totally recommend it! Bari is awesome too - makes scheduling anything easy. Took the boat to a few beaches and saw the caves one day. Was a nice change of pace and learned to paddle-board too. She also arranged for our car - which was great. Another tip is to get duty-free rum after you land in Liberia - it is right in baggage area. A liter of Flor De Cana there will set you up for the week!! Book it. You'll love it!"

  • Wow!!! Wow!!! Wow!!!

    "What can I say about this perfect house?? My husband and I have rented houses all over the world and this was by far the best one we've ever had. I had to pick my chin up off the floor when we first arrived. It is absolutely beautiful! The view is the first thing that grabs you and never gets old. The house is amazing and the owner has thought of everything!! The more than fully equipped kitchen was perfect. We cooked most of our meals in because we didn't want to leave paradise. We spent a leisurely week here either staying on our hilltop paradise or checking out the beautiful beaches. From the birds in the morning to the spectacular sunsets in the afternoon to the stars at night I can't say enough wonderful things about this property. I call Denise a "rock star" in the property management field. She met us at a restaurant and we followed her to the house. She was available to us the entire week if we needed anything. She made us feel most welcome. When (not if) we come back again we want to stay here longer. It was so hard to leave. We highly recommend the Exotica restaurant for a delicious and romantic dinner and the Bamboo Room restaurant for a great meal and live music. John and Janet (the owners) made us feel right at home. If you're spending time in the Ojochal area this house is a must!!!"

  • Tropical Getaway Near the Beach

    "My husband and I had a fantastic stay at this beautiful tropical getaway home nestled in a rainforest setting. The kitchen and large island were great for cooking up fresh food purchased at the local farmer's market. In the mornings, we would sit outside on the lovely patio with our tea and coffee watching the abundant hummingbirds, butterflies, and birds enjoying the beautiful flowers. After breakfast, we would walk down to take a stroll along the beach to catch a glimpse of the amazing La Sirena statue in the ocean waves and look for the Macaws munching on wild almonds. In the evenings, we would pick limes from the lime tree in the yard and make our happy hour drinks before heading to the refreshing pool. The beds were comfortable with air conditioned rooms. If you look close you can spot Herb, the Iguana, which we named while we were there. I loved that if we needed something, there are two small grocers within walking distance of the home. Other then a great getaway home, the location was perfect homebase for sightseeing of the Central Pacific coast of Costa Rica."

  • Birthday family trip

    "The reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because the house was not quite as well kept as in the pictures. Although the house is still beautiful, it seems in need of a little maintenance, mostly on the outside. I do, however, want to praise and compliment the concierge manager and chef! Both were very welcoming, accommodating with excellent service and manners. Fabrice, the concierge manager, was waiting at the house upon on our arrival and continued to connect with us throughout the week to ensure we had everything we needed and were set for our activities. He even handled a potential problem quickly and calmly. It was so refreshing to know he was just a call away, if we needed anything at all. Camille and Pascal, the chefs, were also wonderful and the food was delicious! They even made a beautiful cake for my daughter's birthday. I highly recommend hiring them for a meal or two while your stay at Wood Box."
