Over the years we have heard many stories & reviews of trips / vacations to costa rica.....so decided to give it a try. Flying into Liberia CR made the most sense, new airport & only an hour from Tamarindo....a pleasant beach village. Our hotel the Best Western Vista Villas has a great location, on the side of a hill...facing the ocean...a five minute walk to the beach or into the commerical stores. A ten minute distance to a larger grocery store... Our suite, very reasonability priced, with a limited ocean view turned out to be much better than expected.( 1/3 of what it cost in Aruba last February). Over the week it was well maintained by a very pleasant housekeeper.....Jesenia.
Trevor, the property manager, was helpful and informative in dicsussing options of activities and some "local " Costa Rica points of interest. Michelle from Germany...excellent waitress and we found the hotel restaurant had more than enough choices for anytime of day. Previously on reviews I saw complaints about the breakfast....for us, it worked out, juices, fresh fruit, pastry & plenty of great coffee / a must !!!.... And, we certainly had the option to order omlets, french toast, etc.... Several mornings I chose that option and would recommend it.
My only constructive comment would be for Trevor to ask the staff to keep the bar / pool music at a reasonable level. The day he was off, the pool became a little over-run with local teens and the music was jacked up a bit. The word was obviously out that he was not on the property that one day.
Over all it was a great get-away week, IF you like being secluded and have a great beach to walk and watch surfers, this is the place. Local restaurants, which there were plenty , all good from our experience ...Prices simular to what we pay here in Clearwater, FL.
Hopefully this helps.....ENJOY!!!!!
