Heard multiple times - “Best vacation ever!” Good
friends celebrating three couple’s 30th wedding anniversaries
- a wonderful week with amazing views, food, service. Exceeded
all expectations - thank you Julia, Oscar, Antonia! Kojak added
the excitement with river rafting, ziplining, canoe, volcano tours!
-- Maurers, Peatanias, Cedors, Midlothian, PA
What a lovely week! We are a group of 10 friends from Florida
and this is our second visit. Julia, Gerard and Antonia are lovely
and so accommodating. We were thankful to have them. We visited
four years ago and just had to come back. What a blessing! We
fished four days and caught snapper, tuna, bonita and sailfish.
Whitewater rafting and waterfall visits were great. Ask to do
them on the same day. Enjoy your time! We love Julia, Gerard and
Antonia! They are angels.
-- Smittellis, Bishops, Deans, Jones & Kirks
Another fabulous vacation at the Villa del Mar! Two years later,
I was wondering if it could possibly live up to the first trip
(“girls” vacation to celebrate my 50th birthday).
Most definitely! We went on the Don Bosco sailboat/beach BBQ again,
did Borinquen Spa again (horseback, zipline, mud baths), plus
a few people also did whitewater rafting. SO relaxing with the
helpful staff and gorgeous view!! Already planning the nex trip…purchase
of real estate?? :-) Pura Vida!

June 4-11, 2016
We came to Costa Rica to celebrate a graduation, 2 wedding anniversaries
(23 & 25 years) and a birthday (50th). Villa del Mar was more
than we expected. Oscar was fantastic! His daiquiris and pina
coladas were refreshing. He taught us some Spanish and we taught
him a little English. He was funny & attentive to all our
needs. Ms. Julia’s cooking was so amazing! She also had
a smile on her face and she was generous with big hugs! Antonia
did a great job keeping the house spotless. You put you dirty
clothes in a basket and by afternoon she had your clothes washed
and folded on the table. The house is just a house, but they make
it feel like a HOME!
On Sunday it rained, so we went to Coco Beach in the afternoon
and walked around. There’s not much to buy, just some trinkets.
We do recommend buying pottery from the guy at Ocotal Beach, his
is definitely the best quality for the price ($25). Monday, the
guys went fishing the The Three Brothers, aka “The Pelicans.”
They caught wahoo, rooster fish, snapper, rainbow runner fish.
No sailfish or marlin. The girls stayed at the house for pedicure,
manicure and massage. I definitely recommend Natalia for massage.
She placed a table on the balcony and played relaxing music while
giving the best massage ever! Tuesday was ziplining in rainforest.
Awesome experience! Wednesday was surfing at Tamarindo Beach for
the kids. Recommend surfing lessons! Warning: You will be bombarded
with people trying to sell you stuff. Just say “No gracias!”
Thursday we did river cruise; it was okay, not sure it’s
worth the money. We did see “white-faced monkey” and
that was cool. Lunch was good at a ranch. Friday we went snorkeling
and beach exploring where we found a cave. Definitely recommend
using Antonio & his crew.
You know it’s a great vacation when you don’t know
what day it is. We really enjoyed the pool and the view. A couple
of adventurous people decided to walk to the beach from the house.
You will get a workout! One of the best vacations ever! Very relaxing!
Would come back and recommend to everyone. Pura Vida!

Villa del Mar is PURA VIDA!! We enjoyed walking down to the beach
in the mornings to see the howler monkeys and watching spectacular
sunsets each evening over the infinity pool. White-throated magpie
blue jays would visit us each afternoon around 5:00 looking for
handouts. We went on Antonio’s boat past Monkey Island to
go snorkeling and were bowled over by a wave in a sea cave. Great
fun!! Saw sea urchins, starfish and octopus. Kojak took us on
a river cruise in Palo Verde National Park where we saw crocodiles
with babies, howler monkeys, iguanas and a turquoise browned motmot
with a beautiful long turquoise split tail. Took the combo tour
at Borinquen Resort at the Rincon de la Vieja Volcano where we
bathed in volcanic steam and mud and went ziplining and horseback
riding with our 91 year old mother. Kojak is a wonderful
tour guide and a really nice guy. He took us to where they train
Costa Rican show horses and taught us that the drives to our adventures
were adventures in themselves.
Our hearts were won over by the friendliness of the Costa Rican
people. The staff at Villa del Mar treated us like royalty. Oscar,
with his infectious giggle and warm smile, was attentive to our
every need mixing drinks and serving our meals. Antonia spoiled
us with her housekeeping and doing our laundry. And Julia (who
likes hugs) is an amazing cook. Red snapper, tuna salad, homemade
chips, fresh fruit, beet potato salad and eye inspiring salads
were just a few of the delectable foods she prepared. Every meal
was a delicious experience. Julia, Oscar and Antonia couldn’t
have been nicer. We love them all. This was an experience that
we will forever treasure.

Attended wedding with wonderful family. But the best part of this
trip was the staff. Julia is the BEST cook ever, delicious!! Gained
10 “wonderful” pounds. Oscar goes over and beyond
to bartend, service and all with a smile. He is “jack of
all trade.” Kojak-- what can I say? So accommodating. He
is the best!!

Thank you! Gracias! For an amazing time at Villa del Mar! Our
housekeeper did a wonderful job keeping the house looking clean
and laundry fresh! Julia is one heck of a chef! She kept our bellies
full, but somehow wanting more! We can’t say enough about
our bartender and server, Oscar. Such a great host! Be sure to
ask Oscar to make you the dirty banana! Our house fav. Mucho gusto!
Villa del Mar for life! XO

Pura Vida from Curtis & Julie Baldridge of Willis, TX! We
were blessed to have visited/experienced Costa Rica for the first
time! We were honored to join 7 other couples to come here to
witness the renewing of their wedding vows, Graham & Linda
Webb, married 25 years! It was a beautiful ceremony that honored
their commitment and they were precious to invite us to join them!
As for the staff, they pampered us with delicious meals and “adult
beverages,” serviced our rooms, cleaned our house, did our
laundry, and shuttled us to town. A first for us was the grilled
fish with head and bones! Fortunately, we had someone experienced
in our group coach us on how to eat it! The fruit here is delicious
with bold flavor! Each meal was devoured with, “Mmmm”
to compliment, all agreeing that even a cup of coffee tastes better
while enjoyed facing the ocean! I must also say that the beds
were comfortable and our room’s A/C worked the entire trip!
Every night we were comforted by the presence of the man who provided
all night security. In the morning, there was evidence that he
guarded from multiple points on the property; it was an honor
to know that there was one who sacrificed sleep at night to ensure
our safety. Of course, it is to God whom we give our thanks for
all we enjoyed and give Him glory for His beautiful creation.
Funny as it sounds, feeding bananas to white-faced monkeys (at
the zip line place) was so cute it made me cry! Ha ha! Some in
our group enjoyed fishing and golf as well. And massages! We would
love to return someday. In the meantime, God bless and Pura Vida!
-- Curtis & Julie Baldridge, Willis, TX
Costa Rica Villas are #1 in our book. Favorite
place to come, the best care - staff - food - view ever. No words
other than very blessed to be here in this special place. 4 couples
- deep sea fishing - horseback riding on the beach - zipline.
The staff goes above and beyond to make everyone happy. Thank
you all for a great trip! We will return!!
-- The Dick family, Webb family, Houston, TX
What a wonderful time. Thank you to the staff for all they did
to provide wonderful service. The meals were amazing and the beverage
service was refreshing. We love the sunsets and the monkeys. Hope
to be back one day.

Costa Rica Villas was recommended through friends and it did not
disappoint. We traveled to Villa del Mar for spring break with
six busy kinds in two families. Kojak and his team did a great
job for us - we did everything from ziplining and horseback to
surf lessons in Tamarindo (Carlos taught 10 of us and was amazing!
We all got up!) We did a half day fishing charter. Learned what
a rooster fish was plus whitewater rafting. Our service at the
house was first class - Oscar took great care of us on down days
by the pool while Julia cooked fantastic meals for us. The housecleaning/laundry
service was top notch - the mamas on this trip are going to struggle
going home! We loved our time here.

This trip has been amazing! Our stay at Villa del Mar was very
relaxing and we had great service from all the staff. Julia is
such an amazing cook and very sweet and friendly. She accommodated
to our food needs and even took time to bake a cake for my 30th
birthday. Oscar was very friendly and attended to our needs. His
pina coladas and margaritas were the best drinks ever!
Our rooms were kept clean and had great laundry service. We had
a night watchman, so we all felt very safe at night. We did many
excursions while we were in Costa Rica. Ziplining and river rafting
were super fun. Overall we had a wonderful stay!

March 5-12, 2016
This was our 2nd trip to Playa del Carmen and again, we had a
wonderful time! Oscar was our bartender again and we were so excited
to see him! The kids love Oscar! Julia cooked us A-mazing meals
- no need to go out and eat anywhere else. Elena took wonderful
care of our rooms and laundry. Kojak was awesome with our kids!
When my son had issues with fear on some tours, Kojak was the
one who calmed him down and got him to go! I really appreciated
his patience with my son.
It was a 1st trip to Costa Rica for some of our group and they
loved it! We will definitely be back again! Much love from the
North Dakota Crew! Pura Vida!!

great to be around. YOLO and be in the moment.
Mas Pina Coladas por favor!! Muchas gracias!
Thank you Oscar and staff for such an amazing week in Costa Rica!
Everything in the villas has been perfect - food, drinks, and
help getting around town! This is such a beautiful part of the
country - I can’t wait to be back! PURA VIDA!
What an amazing time, everything worked out so perfectly! Oscar
took great care of us and Kojak was awesome! I couldn’t
have asked for a more perfect week! Definitely will be coming

We thought we were in paradise when we saw the view. But then
we were treated like kings and queens by Oscar, Julia, and Blanca.
Between the deliciously home-cooked meals, spectacular housekeeping,
and awesome all around service from Oscar and Antonio. They managed
to attend to our every need while also having fun with it. They
accommodated all 32 of us at Villa Paraiso for dinner every night,
which was more than we could ask for! They even cooked our grandma
a birthday cake! They weren’t just our staff, we felt like
they were a part of the family on the days that weren’t
spent at the villas. Kendall (our tour guide) managed to not only
manage our excursions, but gave us insight on Costa Rican culture.
We will never forget the chili water!! Our whole family is already
talking about coming back. Thank you for a once in a lifetime
experience. We will NEVER forget you guys!

Thank you for donating a week at your house; we had a wonderful
visit. That is the most relaxed vacation I have had in many years,
and the staff was very accommodating to say the least. (and the
fish was very tasty)

June 26, 2016 We had the most amazing time!
The villa and the staff were awesome.
Costa Rica is absolutely beautiful and we enjoyed the slow pace
and relaxed attitude.
-- Shannon and Warren Amos
April 19, 2016 I wanted to let you know what a GREAT time we had at
Villa del Mar. The villa is beautiful, the view incredible, the
meals spectacular, but what really makes it is the awesome staff.
The meals were plentiful and delicious. I'm convinced Julia could
cook an old shoe and we would enjoy it. Douglas had a drink ready
every time we turned around. They really are great, hard working
We took advantage of Kojack's various excursions
and enjoyed them all, whether it was deep sea fishing, zip lining,
volcanic mud baths or sailing. He made it really easy and took
care of everything, drivers, guides, lunches, etc. All we had
to do was be ready to go at the appointed time.
All in all our family had great time. As
we were leaving our three girls all said it was the best trip
our family had ever taken. Something tells me we will be back

The Bird family (Gail, MaryAnn, Geary, Cathy, Christine, and Carol)
arrived on Oct 24th and were greeted by Oscar, and knew from that
moment on that we were in for a treat. Oscar was delightful, attentive,
professional, and so courteous throughout the week. Julia was
so sweet, and her meals were out of this world! She is an extraordinary
cook and her presentation of each meal was so beautiful. Yamileth
took wonderful care of our rooms, added a special little touch
each day – all with a sweet smile! Kojakc was funny, personable,
knowledgeable, and so pleasant! The staff, the food, the accommodations
could not have been better. The house, the rooms, the spectacular
views made our time in Costa Rica very memorable. We hope we are
able to return again. Thank you so very much.

The group arrived to enjoy our annual vacation we first took in
the bauty of Villa del Mar, and the very welcoming staff Julia,
Oscar, Anavel, Kojakc, and Francisco – even Mr. Poston stopped
by. Julia was an excellent chef; each meal better than the next.
Between Julia and Oscar they were so accommodating, as we had
dietary restrictions, we were overjoyed and nice and full after
each meal. Excursions: We took part in one of the canopy tours which
included zip-lining, horseback riding, water slide, lunch, mud
bath, and hot springs. Our driver was there with us the entire
time. Harold even made some pit stops along the way. We participated
in an ATV excursion which included a stop to pet/feed monkeys.
We rounded out the week with massages by Rosa and her crew and
we were left refreshed, rejuvenated, and exfoliated to perfection
– so relaxing.
Costa Rica is breathtaking. It was the vacation to top all others
from the staff, the villa, and just the pure serenity of this
location and the natural beauty we were able to witness while
here. We will be back. Pura Vida!!

The Carlson Family arrived to Villa del Mar to celebrate the 40th
anniversary of Jeff & Debbie Carlson. All traveled Delta Airlines our
of Milwaukee, WI (USA) with a short layover in Atlanta, GA. In
addition to the matriarch and patriarch of the family, 11 others were in
including a 25-233k-old fetus who made the trek). The 11 family
members included the three bosys, their spouses, and the five grandchildren:
(8), Simon(6), McKenzie (4), Esta (2), and Ellis (7 months).
We took it easy on our first day here,
lounging in the pool and testing out the bartending skills of
Oscar. Some of our favorite drinks from Oscar include his Miami
Vice, Pina Colada, Strawberry-Banana Moothie (virgin), and late-in-the-game
his Bloody Mary. On the second day in paradise, we ventured down
the hill to the black beach and endured the challenging walk back
up the hill. The ladies enjoyed their full-body massages and one
of them even enjoyed a haircut. On the third day, we took an hour-long
van ride into “the middle of nowhere” to view all
kinds of wildlife from a boat. We saw several species of iguana,
crocodiles, birds, and even had a close encounter with several
monkeys on the boat. After the tour, we enjoyed a Costa Rican
meal of rice and beans, chicken, and rice pudding, followed by
our first experience with the unique Costa Rican coffee “machine."
... On Day 4, half of the clan did a zip-lining excursion
that included horseback riding, a concrete slide, and a volcanic
steam bath. The experience
memorable for all involved. The group returned home and imbibed
on Oscar’s margaritas to the full extent. Whether a few party members
were overserved or overindulged is still up for grabs. Day 5
involved a short ride in to Coco Beach for an excursion on the Don Bosco
boat. After a 45-minute sail past “The Monkey Rock” we arrived
at a beautiful beach where we would frolic on the beach and
where nearly everyone would get a strong dose of the sun. This trip was
for many. On the 6th day, we traveled with Kojakc to a “shell beach” and
to Tamarindo Beach. On the way to the shell beach we visited
a monkey farm of sorts. In Tamarindo, some did a little shopping while
relaxed on the beach. All were impressed by the waves, and if
there were a time for surfing, this would have been it.
All said, the family had a wonderful experience
and there were no disappointments in terms of service or food.
Everyone leaves here feeling relaxed, and all look forward to
a return to Costa Rica.

and La Crosse, Wisconsin
I am without words. That is the only thing I can really think of
to describe this 50th anniversary trip. Whether we were lounging
around, languorously soaking in the sunshine, or trekking through exhilarating
pulse-pounding expeditions, every second of our week has been
packed with the most fun, ever.
The staff has been just fabulous. The bartender,
Oscar, in particular is the most amusing, friend, and fun man you’ll meet here. I loved
him – and I’m the kid!! By the way, he has a wide array of virgin
drinks to inform any minor reading this, and they’re all delicious.
Speaking of delicious, however, that award has to go to Julia, the cook.
Her meals are immense, sumptuous, and mouthwatering – you will be
perpetually full. We were. Combining with Candidas, the maid,
they made our time at the
villa fun, delicious, and pristine. Kojakc, however, really steals
the show. His grasp of English rivals my own, making communications a cinch.
And that’s a good thing. Not
only is he extremely funny, Kojakc knows all the best tours,
expeditions, and adventures. He definitely made our week shine.
But the real star of the show was Costa
Rica itself. The beaches are gorgeous and picturesque! The snorkeling
is fantastic; the roads are scenic – all just outside Villa
del Mar’s doorstep! Costa Rica’s bountiful ocean did
not disappoint. We intended to go fishing once, and ended up paying
for three trips! Our harvest was impressive: a gleaming rooster
fish, three snappers, a grouper, more mahi than I can remember,
and a nine foot plus sail fish for each of us! That’s six
sailfish! Our 4-person fishing boat, quickly titled Afishinados
is one that I could recommend without missing a beat. The crew
dazzled us with their expediency, friendliness, and expertise
– especially Freddie! Definitely ship aboard the Afishinados
when you go out – it will be worth it.
... Our zip-lining experience was mind boggling. We started the
day with a rustic ride on trusty horses, leading us through rugged forests,
across bubbling streams, onto picturesque plains, and up to two
Then we dismounted and headed for the zip-lines. The ride was amazing
as we soared through the air, suspended above forests, hot springs,
cliffs, and streams. Finally, we finished with a trip to the hot
springs and mud
baths. It felt amazing. The entire experience was perfect, and I
would do it again in a heartbeat.
I could go on forever. I could fill up the
book, but I don’t think I should waste the paper, so I’ll
stop here. Costa Rica is breathtaking. Villa del Mar is perfect.
And I am without words.

Julia and her five star meals. We appreciated Oscar and Cesar’s
attentiveness and personalized treatment. We felt at home and
instantly relaxed thanks to all of their efforts. Thanks to Candida

enjoyed our time in Costa Rica. It will be a challenge to try
and top this vacation. Many thanks from Humble, Texas.

We don’t want to leave!! This week has been awesome! We
were treated like royalty. Julia is an amazing cook – all
of her dishes were fantastic. Oscar was attentive with our drinks,
making the kids snacks, running into town for more sunscreen,
and so much more! Susana washed our clothes daily and cleaned
our rooms. Our tour guide, Kojak was FUN! And he explained the
history of the towns we drove through, scheduled our excursions
and made sure we had the time of our lives! We went deep sea fishing
and caught TWO large sailfish. We went whitewater rafting –
so FUN! And we went zip-lining, horseback riding, water slide,
mud bath, and hot springs tour. The best adventure EVER! My mother
went deep sea fishing twice! This was the best 40th birthday vacation
ever and Julia even made a cake and sang to me – so sweet!
We will be back but for two weeks next time! See you soon!

hungry. Gerrard was the sweetest guy who always helped us when
we needed it. Not to mention, the drinks were also delicious.
Kojack and McKensi were lovely chauffers, not a single complaint.
The staff were all friendly, efficient, and very professional.
They made our stay perfect. Thank you fo rthe wonderful holiday

What a fabulous place. The staff was great - catered
to our every whim. They were so attentive. Kojac took us to some
great locations which we all enjoyed and were happy to experience.
The trip on Antonio's boat with his attentive crew
was a lot of fun. Would love to return to this paradise.

WOW! What a great trip. Days of overeating, overdrinking,
relaxing, fishing, ziplines, ATV, swimming, shopping, massages,
and snorkeling! Antonio never said no, he always came through
on every request. Aura cleaned up after us every day and Dayanira
prepared the most wonderful meals. Did I say WOW!? We will definetly

Wow! What an "amazing" vacation we have had. Everything
at the villa has far exceeded our expectations! The view is "amazing".
The comida es excelente. Deyanira has truly spoiled us with her "amazing"
meals. Antonio was always there to serve us our yummy drinks.
His smile and willingness to always help is truly appreciated.
The house was always clean. The staff was "amazing". We enjoyed
our time with Mkenzie on our excursions. The day beach trip on
the Don Bosco was "amazing". We couldn't have asked for a better
trip to celebrate our 40th birthdays. Oh... did I mention how amazing

This is Paridise! We are having an amazing vacation.
Douglas has been so kind to us. You make the best dirinks! The
food is delicious. Costa Rica is a beautiful place to be. It is
one of my favorite vacations EVER! You make us feel very happy
and welcomed. Thank you, so very much. All the service, the cook,
and housekeeper were perfect. Zipling was very exciting. A super

March 2 - April 3, 2013
PARADISE!! This has been the best girls' trip ever!
Antonio is truly awesome, with his perpetual smile and fruit
smoothies. And, of course, the frozen margaritas. Deyanita's
food is to die for -- especially the lobster, guacamole, omelets,
chicken salad, and birthday cake... Oh heck, just all of it!
And Aubra took such good care of our rooms, and we loved hearing
her infectious "newly wed" lauch. Then there was Mackenzie, who
just did so much to make sure we enjoyed our ziplining and spa
excursion. He bought us coconuts to drink and even went up the
mountain to bring us really hot mud for our mud baths. What a
totally wonderful vacation -- we'd love to come back!
--THE FAB FIVE, Manasquan, NJ
Favorite trip events: *Kojak our guardian during
Lizard Lounge antics. *Don Bosco sailing adventure. *Best Food! We loved
tuna noodles and most of all GUACAMOLE and lobster. *Antonio's
rum smoothies (and his sneaky smile). *Sunsets by our pool - and
in Tamarindo too. *Our stray dog "Perro" in the beach below. *Ziplining
upsdie down & superman too. *Hot Springs were badass! We would
def recommend. *Caves at Huevos beach were our favorite photo
moment. *Lola's beach bar - Tuna Poke. Yummmm. *Matt & Josh surf
session in Tamarindo.

March 5 - 12, 2013
First: The staff here at Villa del Mar
is the best. The cook is fabulous, Antonio is wonderfual and the
houskeeper laundress is amazing. The view both night and day is
beautiful. We liked the local zip line but it doesn't compare
to the one near Lake Arenal - It is a thrill ride. Fishing on
the lake is
fun too. The turtle egg laying trip was extremely moving - the
200 pound mama turtle laid about 70 eggs as we watched and filmed.
Kojak and McKenzie are wonderful guides and drivers. They can
find anything you need and are totally reliable. This week long
adventrue was the best ever.
-- Wes Sarginson, Ann Sarginson, Dick & Linda Gepfer, Rob & Mary
Ann were with us and loved every moment of it. We hate to leave!
February 26 - March 5, 2013
If you find Deyanira, Douglas, and Elena missing,
it's because we have taken them with us back to Texas! (Kojak and Mackenzie
are piloting our plane!) Believe us, this is your loss!! They have truly
made our time in Costa Rica memorable. The villa was everything we expected
and more. It turly is "Pura Vid.a"
--The Carrs, Hartmans, Hoermanns & Thortons, Breckenridge, TX
February 6-13, 2013
From the moment we walked through the door and saw
the view, we were all completely taken! From there on it only
got better. Deyanira’s amazing meals kept us wanting more, Douglas’ pina
coladas, strawberry banana daiquiris and the infamous “Chili Guaros”! Kojac & Makenzi
were more than just tour guides, they enjoyed hanging out with us as much
we did with them. We truly feel we have made great friends here.
This vacation would not have been so memorable if not for Deyanira, Douglas,
Maria, Kojac & Makenzi.
They all truly were the icing on the cake to our stay in beautiful
Costa Rica! Pura Vida Mai mas Chili Guaros en la promxima! Gracias con
por las mejores vacaciones que hemos disfrutado!

This was the perfect place for our destination
wedding! We were married October 7, 2012 at Villa del Mar. Robert
and April Lewis. We brought four of our closest family and had
a small intimate ceremony. The views speak for themselves!! But
Antonio and Claudia made this experience one of a kind!!! We went
to the hot springs, zip line, and horseback riding. We also went
deep sea fishing on Antonio’s boat. His captain and first
mate were so great! We caught four mahi mahi. The biggest was
30 lbs! We brought it home and ate it for dinner. We will absolutely
come back! We lived like kings for a week! The food is unreal!
So fresh! We hope everyone enjoys as much as we did.
-- Robert, April, Steven Lewis, Eric Lynn, Doug Herrin, Cumming,
Kojack, Antonio, and the rest of the staff
were the best anyone could ask for. Kojack’s connections
and hospitality made sure we were not going to leave Costa
Rica not having
seen the sights. Kojack knows everything that is a must do/see/drink.
Antonio kept the drinks flowing and cleaned up after our true
We love it here!!! The pool is amazing and the staff is equally
amazing. We will have cuts that will last a week, but memories
that will last a lifetime.
-- The Martin Family, Texas/California/Indiana
P.S. Also, the food is so good that it will make the gods jealous!
It was all wonderfual. From the food to
the staff to the things I did during my stay at this villa.
-- Griffin Tigre, Santa Barbara, California
July 24, 2012 We loved it all! We got quickly used to being spoiled
by Douglas, Desgarita, and Jackeline. How can we go back to our
regular lives?! Costa Rica is awesome -- the people, the beauty,
the culture. We leave totally understanding Pura Vida!
--Mary Tighe & Andy Liepman, Falls Church, Virginia
Our stay here was fantastic.
Everybody was so kind and generous every day. Each of them really
took the time to make sure we were comfortable and very, very
busy every day. I hope we can return to Costa Rica because we
really made memories that will last a lifetime! YAY!
--Megan Tighe, Santa Barbara, California
The experience I face here totally rocked
my world out. I snorkeled through warm, salty waters, endured
rough white rapids, traveled through bumpy hills on horseback,
A divine spot to learn how to relax and spend time with friends.
Hospitality of the staff was foremost but the views and pool
topped that! Thank you all!
-- Michele Curcio, Westchester, New York
What a great vacation. Celebrating our daughter's
30th birthday. Great staff, great food. Kojak was the best our

There is nothing more to add... it is the best of the best. We
have had the royal treatment by everyone at the villa, on the
tours. Wonderful trip.

Thank you for a great place and a wonderful time. We will be
back with another group. The staff was great!! Kojak was as good
as always. He is a well kept secret.
-- Jerry & Barbara Patton
We really enjoyed ourselves at this home.
The service was excellent and the food was very well prepared.
Our driver was great and so was Kojack. The rooms were very spacious,
clean and the whole house was just perfect for our size family.
-- Karen Gallagher
I can tell you that it has taken us a while to get back in the "swing" of
things after such a delightful week in Costa Rica.
First of all ... THANK YOU for the Mariachi band ... it was a
hit and everyone certainly enjoyed having a little culture come to the
party. We danced all night. It was such pleasant treat ...
Let me also tell you how wonderful the accommodations were ...
the views, the food, the pool, but best of all was the service
from Kojak (he is a rock star in our book), Lina, Abraham and Dona Julia… they
are all so wonderful !!! It was hard to leave them ... they certainly
made our trip complete.
I don't think any of us knew we would fall so in love with the
people of Costa Rica. We did it all ... Zip line, Spa, massages by the
pool, mani, pedis, horseback riding on the beach, surfing, fishing, sunsets,
mud baths, water slides ... and there is so much more we kept for the
I think Rob's 50th was a great success and one he will never
forget. We build some great memories with friends and the locals.
Thank you again for everything ...
Our trip was the highlight of our year. SO many wonderful parts
- the animals, the food, the scenery, the tours, the zip line!! We
have and will continue to recommend the Del Mar to our friends!
Both our family and my parents were picked up and dropped off
right on schedule, no hassles! Our main driver, Mackenzi, was a super
- very glad we were not driving, yikes! ... The house is in very nice
condition - new, clean, updated and very well kept. ... The beds were
all comfortable with very nice linens. They were changed every two days
and that was great! Lena was fabulous as our maid. She was attentive and
cleaned each room daily! ...
The food was FANTASTIC! We really enjoyed the variety and flexibility
with the kids. Plenty of food was provided - we were stuffed
after each meal! We felt the food was fresh with a variety of
meals served. There
were no duplicates, and any of it could have been, it was all
delicious. The kids loved the smoothies, the virgin margueritas
and daiquiris. The
adults enjoyed the mixed drinks as well as the blender choices.
... Carlos was very capable of understanding both our English
and our rugged Spanish!
Carlos and Holia were TOP NOTCH! It was a 5 star experience each
day with them. Great service. Friendly, smiling and we truly
enjoyed them!! My
younger two kids really got along nicely with Carlos - lots of
teasing and laughter! (And now, we really miss them! ) We felt
very comfortable asking them for what ever we needed. continued...
...We greatly enjoyed the tours. The information and pricing you
sent prior to our trip was invaluable. Without that, we felt the price
of the tours could have been much more expensive. Kojak was very attentive
and willing to set up anything we wanted in addition to the information
you provided. We did the boat tour, the trip to Arenal (including the
rain forest walk, tram tour and hot springs), a beach tour to Tamarinda,
and the local zip line tour. My parents did a tour to Liberia with Mariella
one morning as well. The scuba shop at the Ocotal Hotel was GREAT. We
set up two mornings for my son to get his scuba certification and one
of the mornings we all went out on the boat and did a snorkel trip. Great
recommendation as well!
Many thanks to [all]. We felt like we knew what to expect when
we arrived. Everything was just as you described, which is a nice and
Many thanks for a great trip!! We hope to join you again someday!
How can I come back to Dalton Georgia and live my regular life
when I've been to Costa Rica??? Our vacation was PERFECT!
Villa Del Mar was even more beautiful than the description and pictures
sent. We spent a lot of time just standing at the edge of
the pool looking out at the ocean, watching the boats off the beach, marveling
at the birds that flew by or stopped for a drink or bath
in the pool,
and listening to the howler monkeys in the trees. I will
never forget the view. We were up before 6:00 a.m. every morning and struggled
to stay up until 9:00 p.m. in the evening - our days were
Lawson (saw octopus, shark, manta rays, and many many beautiful
fish), went to Palo Verda for the river tour, to Buena Vista for the canopy
tour, Rincon National Park for hiking, and Coco for shopping!
week was way too short.
The staff at the villa was wonderful. We came to think of
Socorro, Makensi, Lina, Carlos and Leslie as family - they certainly
like theirs. They were kind, funny and always helpful.
cooking was to die for - and she was happy to accommodate any special
son doesn't eat fish and she always came up with something he
...Makensi was funny and friendly and helped us with our Spanish
us happily sipping drinks by the pool; he was an artist with
the blender!! Lina was always cheerful and kept the house spotless
- and it was nice
to come home with no dirty clothes!
Carlos was always around
to answer questions and help us with anything we needed. Leslie was
a master tour
guide - very knowledgeable, very accommodating. He was always
available with our transportation (and always had it cool for us!)
and always right
there when we were ready to be picked up. We enjoyed spending
time with him; we learned alot about Costa Rica from him.
I had pretty high expectations for this trip from the information
that you provided, but in EVERY area, the expectations were exceeded.
Thank you so much. We will sift through the 700-800 pictures
we took (4 cameras!) and get a few for your website.
I want to thank you for your help arranging our
stay at Villa Del Mar. Our flight went smoothly. Leslie was there to meet
us at the airport and the staff were there to greet us at the Villa. The
food and service could not have been any better. We loved Leslie, Carlos,
Socorro, Lina and McKenzie, and Raphael the pool man.
We stayed at the
Villa most of the time, as we went to relax. We did go on the Adventure
Tour and fishing. We enjoyed the Canopy adventure. The fishing was great.
We caught eight or nine Yellow Finned Tuna and a few Bonita. That night
Bill fixed sushi for us and even my friend Butch [liked it]. We will [ask]
anyone interested in a trip to Costa Rica to contact you.
Thank you all for being so wonderful to work with!
Doris and I love bragging about Villa Del Mar and everyone involved. I
wanted to let you know what an awesome time we had at the Villa. It was
everything you said it'd be - and more!! It was the best vacation we ever
The Costa Rican country side is beautiful. We went on some great
tours - Leslie (or those he set us up with) were the best, really informative.
The house was absolutely beautiful. The pool was awesome. We all have
so many pictures of the pool - couldn't get enough of it. The house staff
was absolutely the BEST!! Leslie, Carlos, Mackensie, Socorro and Lina
are now like family to us. They saw to our every need - and were so much
fun to be with. We actually could have stayed at the house and been perfectly
We thank you for having a place like the Villa Del Mar. It was
perfect for our family vacation - and we can't wait to go back.
-- Terry Wyhoski
Well, not sure where to begin…to say we had
a blast on our trip would be the understatement of the year! What a majestic
place; both the house and the country! Everything from the views, the
food, the beds, the people…we canopy'd, fished, rafted, surfed,
hiked, ate, drank Imperial, PURA VIDA!!!! Kojack was great, and the staff
of Eddy, Soccoro, and Lina were all great. We spent a lot of time with
McKenzy as well…what a great guy… Thanks again for being
so helpful…we will def. be back to Playa de Coco again!
Thank you so much,
-- David & Jessica
What a wonderful time we have had here at your beautiful villa. We have
made wonderful memories, spent time relaxing (which our family greatly
needed) and was introduced to some great people. We will take a part
of your staff home with us. They will hold a special place in our hearts.
They have worked very hard to make our stay pleasurable. From the great
food, to clean laundry, to cocktails by the pool. GRACIAS! Oh yeah! Let's
not forget Leslie. He made our stay here come together. The driving was
always adventurous. What a nice guy. He seems to be a hard worker and
always wanting to do the right thing. Thank you very much!

This week in Costa Rica has been wonderful! Each day was filled
with so much beauty and adventure.

each day here. Everything was outstanding, especially the food and service
from the staff. We appreciate all your thoughtfulness and caring. Bless
--Kim & Eric Cagan
What a treat! Thanks for the opportunity to experience Costa
Rica. We all need to learn from the locals - laid back is good. The view
is spectacular. I found myself just gazing across the bay - at peace.
The staff - what can I say? They could not have been more considerate.
Thanks again for everything.
Could be you might have a permanent guest - this is an experience
I will always remember. Thank you for your hospitality!

Had a wonderful time. The villa is beautiful,
the food is delicious, and the service is great. The best part of our summer
- loved it.
We'll be back soon.
