“Incredible, seriously” My wife and I stayed at the Lattice House for our honeymoon. It was truly nothing short of spectacular. Upon arriving, we were met by ana, the housekeeper. I am a bit of a business bulldog with a short patience, and this woman was absolutely top-of-the-line as far as professionalism is concerned. She instantly made us feel comfortable and at home, and offered to arrange any activities we had in mind for the week. The house was killer. Tons of open air rooms, but you can also efficiently close off the bedrooms and use aC within (we slept great). The kitchen, dining and living rooms are all connected, and you can open all the doors onto the pool porch, providing an expansive surrounding. Bathrooms are very clean and modern. Outdoor showers were to die for. Kitchen was modern and effective. The pool is really the gem of the house. We spent our final day just hanging out on the patio--swimming and drying off only to jump in again about a hundred times--because we knew we would miss it the most (debatably more than anything else we experienced on our vacation!). The view of the whale tail is literally the best around- we tried other restaurants with elevated views and would laugh as they all fell short of the view from the Lattice House. The entire property is rather spectacular. We hiked from our house into orchards where we could pick fresh fruit, and then on to a waterfall. We would usually drive, but you can also walk from the house down to the beach in about 20 minutes if you're looking to burn off a few cocktails. Overall, this place is incredible and I will definitely be back. I am very well traveled (rather luxuriously to be honest) so I considered booking a honeymoon at a 5-star resort. This was way, way, way better than any time we've had at the St. Regis, Four Seasons, or Ritz. You won't regret a decision to stay at the Lattice House, to be sure!

“A luxurious yet carefree get away” Having grown up in Bermuda I have seen paradise first hand. I found paradise again during my visit to Villa Paraiso. The Villa is nothing short of spectacular. Relaxation comes quickly at the swim up bar in the infinity pool while watching the sunset from an unobstructed view. The Villa would be a perfect setting for a large party or just a large family. The gourmet kitchen is a chef's dream. The theatre, just off the kitchen, is a great entertainment feature. We certainly plan to visit again. The only downside I see to the Villa is that eventually you have to leave.

“Paradise, As Advertised” We stayed at the Flying Toucans in early June. We are a family of 4, including 9 and 11 year old girls. It was an experience of a lifetime! This property is spectacular and immaculate. It offers relaxation, incredible views, a wonderful pool, and every comfort you could wish for. There is an abundance of wildlife which is entertaining in itself. It's obvious that John and Mary have gone the extra mile. Daryl was a fantastic resource, and Joiner did a splendid job keeping everything in top notch condition. Every previous review rates it a 5-star, with good reason. I second every positive comment that others have left. Here are some extra tidbits that may help enhance your experience. We had every intention to prepare our own meals, but quickly discovered that the local restaurants were fabulous and very reasonable. Specifically, Porque No, Exotica, and Parcella. Be sure to find these places in the daylight, as finding them at night can be tricky. We flew in and out of Liberia, a 5-hour drive. The roads were surprisingly good, much better than I expected. Road signs could have been better. I recorded my rental car inspection as a precaution, just to avoid any unpleasant surprises when I dropped it off at the airport. We rented a Yaris, which was adequate for the driving we did. The Whale's tail and horseback riding were fantastic. Lounging in the pool and admiring the views filled out our week. A splendid vacation all around! Thanks John and Mary! We've recommended Flying Toucans to our friends, and hope to visit again some time. Nick from Canada

“wow! wow! and wow!” We loved staying at Paradise Breezes! We stayed at Villa Cristal with our 5 year old daughter for 1 week in February. It was a fantastic vacation with a perfect mix of adventure and rest, with lots of family time - in our fabulous villa with pool and hot tub, overlooking the sea! The property is stunning, the views incredible, the house impeccable on every level (fixtures, furnishings, linens), and the staff are all amazing beyond belief! Edgardo is so fantastic- incredible at his job and a stellar person! He was always there to take care of us - just a phone call away. We indulged and hired both the PB chef and massage therapist while there - 2 more incredible staff and wonderful people! I really enjoyed having access the lovely little gym and the spin bike is a brilliant idea, as running those hills lasted 2 minutes before I was crying for an oxygen tank! It was so hard to leave that place. Go - you will love it!

“Stunning Place” Hi I've spent three times in Las aguas, I really enjoyed the place, acoommodations, food and costumer service that Steve and his staff gave us. It's a magic place in the middle of stunning mountains, near from beaches and waterfalls.

“Relaxing, private family vacation” We stayed for a month with our two young children (aged 3 years and 9 months). The house was perfect (exactly as it had been described); it was very clean and the convenience of having our own pool was a wonderful added bonus. The views of ocean were spectacular and the beach was only a very short walk away. Storm and Amy were always available to answer our questions and give us tips on places to visit. We were looking for a place to get completely away from everything and enjoy our family and this location was absolutely perfect (and so was the weather!). If we get the opportunity, we will definitely be back!

“Ultimate Honeymoon Hideaway” We had the entire property to ourselves for an entire week during our honeymoon. This really is the perfect place. Every ounce of the house is incredible. The rooms are gorgeous, the furniture is beautiful, and the view from the pool/lookout must be seen to be believed. I can't really describe how awesome it was to have this huge house all to ourselves (of course, they locked off the bedrooms we weren't using, but that's a non-issue). Also, the wildife viewing from the pool area is amazing. We saw more action in the "backyard" than we did on any of our jungle tours. During the day, toucans, aracaris, lizards, monkeys, racoons, parakeets, and squirrels. At night, toads, geckos, and some pretty crazy insects (outside of course!). A little rustic, a lot luxurious, and a mountain of romantic. Lastly, phenomenal service. The staff lives in a house out back. They give you all the privacy you want, but are nearby if you need them. We felt quite safe.

“Amazing honeymoon!!” Danny and I just returned from our honeymoon at Punta Gabriella. This is our second time around and we really did our research to find an extraordinary destination. My Google search was "Beach Bungalow with Private Jacuzzi". Wow!!, we were not disappointed!. It was everything we had envisioned. Private villa (for those who don't like to wear a lot of clothes), private jacuzzi, private infinity pool, beautiful sleeping villa, spectacular panoramic views. Seriously, probably the most beautiful property we have ever stayed at. We were lucky enough to have Jesse's helicopter parked on top of the house. We took two unbelievable tours up and down Costa Ricas coast line. Pilot adam was amazing and so knowledgable about the country! It was one of our hi-lights for the week. The staff became our extended family. Edwin the property manager, waited on us everyday with a smile on his face and always enthusiastic to help whenever we asked for anything. The grounds are manicured meticulously, our villa was spotless, the bed was to die for in comfort and the common house is 5 star in beauty with luxury facilities. There was plenty of sun, even for the rainy season. The rain was inviting to listen to in the afternoon. The evenings were warm and the sunsets were spectacular. If you want the ultimate rain forest experience combined with service that rivals the best resorts in the world, then look no more. We can not wait to return to Punta Gabriella for our one year anniversary...Danny and Kathy

“Beautiful and amazing” I spent four weeks at the Exotica with colleagues in Feb 2011 and was most impressed with the facilities, service, and location. The photos of the villa do it no justice - it is far more beautiful in person. The privacy is unparalleled, yet proximity to Dominical provides a distinct convenience. Our concierge was spectacular: our needs were continuously anticipated and met, and any special request were immediately granted. As a home base for business or pleasure, this location is perfect for both singles and families. I will be eagerly awaiting my next visit.
