We travelled as a family with 2 little children. The villa was perfect for us, a complete house with kitchen, comfortably designed and decorated. Great location and a really nice beach nearby. A warm welcome, very nice atmosphere.

This place falls way below expectations set by the posted photos, posted description, and the review in Lonely Planet. Overall the place in appearance was far below the beautiful photos and the detailed reservation information. The property is a reclaimed farm field with landscaping is far from attractive or quaint. The placement of the Villas does not add the the... More

We've been there two times and will come back for sure. Fully equiped cabinas with Kitchen, decent size fridge, AC in the bedroom, wifi, and a safe for your valuables. Wake up to the sounds of birds of all kinds and monkeys, have your coffee in hamacs on the front patio and then head out to the magnificent playa avellanas.... More

Please read to the end before renting there! I spent 2 weeks in Costa Rica. Totally loved my trip and experience minus the 24hrs I spent at Las Avellanas Villas. I had rented the place for 6 nights, stayed only one. The first thing I noticed when I checked in the villa was the degree of dirtiness of the place.... More

Thank you Jeennash for your feedback, we both know that you noticed the first night that Avellanas is a very quiet and natural place with not much "nightlife" around. So first you told me that you actually want to stay in Tamarindo because Avellanas is too quiet for you and your friend. I told you that we are in high... More

They treated us badly without good manners or willing to help, it says walking distance to the beach but it's very far, they wanted to charge us for everything - not nice people don't stay there. The photos of Facebook are completely fake, it doesn't look like the photos at all. There is a nicer place and with a trail... More

If you are expecting resort accommodation this isn't it. We liked how close it was to several attractions and places to eat. We rented a car from owners and drove all around, like to Tamarindo and Santa Cruz. We had ants but only when I was careless and left out food. A little bug spray bought at the supermarket in...

We stayed here at the end of September, our plan was staying for 2 nights, but we only stayed one night -- the "villa" was in a very poor shape -- bad maintenance -- the toilet didn't even have the seat - there were ants all over place - it looked dirty - cheap linen & terry. I had even... More

Isabel is easygoing and this place is simply gorgeous and so affordable! I felt in a nature sanctuary! Preferable to have your own car and good to be able to have a kitchen.
