Properties on Holiday Lettings can be sorted/ranked in the following ways:
Orders properties using various data points, in particular: ratings, number of bedrooms/bathrooms, minimum number of nights, and data relating to the interest in/bookings of the property through us, including the advertiser’s rate of providing quotes to travellers who make enquiries. Other factors include price, property capacity, number of photographs, location, amenities, appearance in search results, page views, and the advertiser’s responsiveness and cancellation rate.
Price low to high / high to low
Orders properties based on either (i) the property’s minimum nightly price, if the traveller has searched without dates, or (ii) the average nightly price for the applicable week of the year, if the traveller has input dates.
Orders properties by total number of reviews attached to the listing (highest to lowest), irrespective of average score. Where there is a listing with the same number of reviews as another (or a listing with no reviews), properties are sorted according to their proximity to the searched location.
“Breathtaking Luxury” I just returned from 6 nights in Playa Hermosa with my husband and kids (21, 17, 15, 12) after spending several days in the arenal rainforest. Everything about Mar-a-Villa and Costa Rica Star Villas was spectacular! The villa is great for families and/or couples groups. Everyone who works for Star Villas is professional, friendly and accommodating. Adriana, Marisol, Blair, Jeffrey, Sandy, Soledad and Robyn were all great to work with; from booking to maintaining the residence, driving to concierge services & meal prep. The villa is large and luxurious. 5 large bedrooms with large bathrooms and balconies to enjoy the beautiful view. Somehow, it also feels like home. The view is amazing! When you walk through the front door, you feel like you have stepped into your own personal paradise! Marble floors, high ceilings with wooden inlays, huge terrace and infinity pool. The sports bar area was great with the pool table and the big screen TV while listening to our ipods piped throughout the house. It's better than a 5 star hotel! The local beach is big enough with a restaurant, (small hotel and bar down the beach) and amenities like chairs, bathrooms and jet ski and banana boat, sunset cruise rentals are also readily available there.
Surfing in Tamarindo twice, full day fishing trip, manicures and chef prepared meals at the villa. (all booked through Costa Rica Star Villas). The kids rented jet skis and we soaked in the warm waters off the beach. You could be as busy or as relaxed as you wanted. Our drivers were wonderful and Blair took us to Father Rooster's a great restaurant about 15 minutes from the villa with great drinks, atmosphere and food. There is shopping in Coco about 10 minutes away and a small supermarket at the bottom of the hill from the villa. We even had pizza delivered one night!
The whole experience was wonderful and I would highly recommend Costa Rica Star Villas and most definitely Mar-a-Villa. We are hoping to return soon.
