"Off the charts perfection!"
5 of 5 stars. Reviewed February 20, 2016
This was our second visit to Laguna Vista Villas this year, (our 4th in the past 3 years), and to be honest, we were a bit concerned that it just couldn't possibly be as magical as each previous visit. We were right...Incredibly enough, it was even BETTER!
Since our last visit in March of 2015, the kitchen and dining areas have undergone a remarkable upgrade, and the grounds and cottages look even more appealing. The new manager, Martine, is energetic and adorable, and she is dedicated to helping you make the very most of your trip, whether you want to be utterly active, just sit and veg in the crazy gorgeous environment, or somewhere in between. For us, the true beauty of LVV is in the authenticity of a small, rustic rainforest eco-lodge, with an incredibly attentive staff and more natural beauty than one can absorb.
Our days were spent kayaking, body surfing on the private beach (at low tide), fishing, hiking, swimming in the infinity pool, and simply enjoying the magic of the rain forest and its incredible flora and fauna from our private plunge pool on our private deck. The fantastic fresh-squeezed margaritas definitely added to the experience!
"Great stay with terrific views"
5 of 5 stars. Reviewed March 7, 2016
Our family (2 boys 6 and 11) from Germany stayed here in Feb 2016 for 3 nights. After a rough 90 min drive from Porto Jimenez we were more than happy to find this little paradise. The team is just great, esp. Martine, the manager, and Coco, the cook. They were especially wonderful with the kids. Full meal board is delicious and includes great ideas from local kitchen. We had a space bungalow with our own lunch pool - so we could use both: this one and the very nice designed large infinity pool. Although you feel a 100% in the middle of nature everything is very comfortable and clean. Definitely a great place and team to be very much recommended for Costa Rica. Best regards Bernhard
Room Tip: Great space bungalows with outdoor shower, plunge pool and terrific view to laguna and ocean
"Best Kept Secret In Costa Rica"
5 of 5 stars. Reviewed March 16, 2016
I cannot begin to find enough words to describe how wonderful this place is. I traveled with a group of women to this amazing place and enjoyed every moment of my time there.
Martine is wonder women who helped make sure we had the experience of a lifetime on our first visit to Costa Rica. Coco is a culinary genius who fed us like Queens while we were there.
We enjoyed a room with an amazing view and loved waking up to the sound of Howler Monkeys. Pictures cannot do the place justice. Enjoying dinner by candlelight every night was a highlight to me. The views from where the villas sit is just breathtaking!
I'm so happy to have found this place and almost want to keep it a secret so I bring my family back one day and it be unchanged. You won't regret coming here!!
Room Tip: be sure to have a margarita!
