We were a group of 17 with the youngest one being 5. Every one enjoyed the separate rooms with bathrooms. The nice kitchen was a pleasure to cook in. The pool was incredible and the view was to die for. Benjamin and Maru helped us find the place and settled us in. They also helped us with tips about the...

My family and I stayed here over a year ago and I feel bad waiting this long to review it but the house was so amazing and Stu, who took care of us the whole week we were there, including cooking us an amazing dinner one night, was so cool and accomodating, I felt compelled to share our experience. As...

The house is beautiful, comes with daily cleaning and laundry service that was unexpected. View is incredible, you can hear the howler monkeys in the mornings and if you are lucky have a visit by a sloth and cappuccino monkeys. Toucans were there every day. Road to the house is an adventure, definitely need a 4x4 to get there, but...

This house was amazing and was only given 4 stars for a few small reasons! A few things you should know - bugs - they live there, too... It is an open air house but has a/c in the bedrooms! The bugs didn't bother us, however, we were surprised when we got there that no one had aired out the...

I'm not sure what Villa Ambiente was before as a "hotel", BUT I can tell you that it is very lovely NOW! My friends and I, 8 of us, stayed at Villa Ambiente for 6d/5n in June 2015. IT WAS EXCELLENT!!!!!! The place has been transformed, and hosts 8 rooms with equal accommodations. Each of us had our own room,...

Our confirmed reservation for early January 2014 (3 nights) was cancelled by this hotel without any reason or excuses. At least they could have arranged other options for us in this busy season as it is difficult to find a good alternative. Luckely we have found another hotel by now. I wouldn't trust your booking at this hotel.

We went back to the Villa for 10 days in May of 2013 after 5 wonderful days in Dec 2012. Our experience was once again wonderful. This time we ha a car and were able to explore more of he SW Costa Rican coast from Jaco to Ohochal and found it beautiful, quiet and extremely interesting. The Villa is still...

The hotel is in the middle of a lush tropical forest, and in theory you need a 4x4 to get there. We drove our small car for those 2.5 km and had no problem whatsoever. The place is beautiful, the breakfast you are given is plentiful and really good, it's easy to see the stars at night, you relax to...

once you'd have approached the hotel via a bush road (you better take a 4wd!) crossing a small river and driving steeply uphill for approx. 2 kms, you'll be rewarded with a small boutique hotel, which was built by swiss at "swiss standards", meaning that the hotel wouldn't only survive a nuke attack, but also the high-end appliances and furniture/decorations...
