We stayed at villas Nicolas long time ago, but am happy to give a great review. Our stay for couple days in one of the condos was so wonderful! The lazy hammock and large balcony, facing the ocean is so serene. We didn't hear any of the noise from the street. The staff at that time(cannot remember name) were friendly,...

Room 8 was the perfect place to watch birds and monkeys, since the fantastically wonderful terrace was in the treetops. The views were incredible, and the terrace alone made the stay great. The room itself was fine, nothing special. You COULD hear all of the noise from the street, from the bar/restaurant downstairs, and from the folks preparing breakfast in...

I liked this hotel, the views from the balcony were excellent, the room was cute and the staff tried to be very helpful. They have a guard on duty all night in the front of the hotel. Stayed 2 nights, we paid $110 per night including breakfast. If you want to go down to the beach just take the bus.....

My girlfriend and I did a 3 night stay. Best hotel we stayed at in Costa Rica. We were in room 3 up. The balcony was big, almost the size of the room itself. We were a walk-in and were offered a choice of three rooms from $75-$120 pre tax. We chose the room at the $105 rate because of...

Villas Nicolas was our favourite spot ! We spent 5 nights at Villas Nicolas recently and our stay was incredible! Despite the weather (rainy season) our room was so comfortable and charming, we did not mind being “room bound” from time to time.The views are incredible! Monkeys came to visit on a daily basis and the “watusas” were a treat...

We are return guests of Villas Nicolas' and each stay seems to surpass the last. This small, tasteful little condo hotel has evolved over the years (we first went there 16 years ago) .At that time,aircon was a luxury,as were phones in the rooms, not to mention wifi ! Now they have all three ! The continual upgrades in decor...

As a hospitality leader myself, I am the most corteous as well as forgiving person when I travel, dine, etc. However, when the philosophy of the person running this facility is "Read the signs" or "Here are the rules" and there is zero financial impact nor major inconvenience, it is my duty to recommend to the actual owners of this...

It had a pool and a restaurant with breakfast included. Our room was huge and had a patio and a hammock. Comment from my son: "There was cute geckos all over the place, which helped eat the mosquitos ." We saw a sloth hanging out on a tree from our patio. Really nice pool, too. Only downside was the numerous...

I was disappointed by Costa Rica in general but enjoyed my weekend in the rainforest at Nicholas Villas. We stayed in room 6 which is one of the best outfitted apartments I have ever seen ( and I worked in hotels for over 25 years)!! However the cats were a nuisance and there is a musty smell in the room....
