Visited Recreo the last week of June for the beginning of our honeymoon and couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. 1 hour and 30 minutes north of Liberia outside of the small towns of La Cruz and El Jobo is where you will find this gem. We arrived around 10pm the first night after a long day of...

Recreo is a remote sanctuary 30 minutes down a dirt road on a hilltop with great views overlooking the Pacific ocean. You're in the jungle with crabs, lizards, monkeys, giant toads and all kinds of birds and butterflies. At the same time you have satellite cable lcd tv's , great home cooked meals and guest services with excellent housekeeping and...

There aren't enough amazing things I can say about Recreo. My husband and I went there for our honey and stayed at house #7. This house had an amazing panaramic view of the ocean, valley, and gorgious sunsets from every place in the house. But the best part was the bedroom. The views from the bedroom were breath taking! Our...

If you're looking for a luxury remote, relaxing beach and mountain resort - you've found it. Set in the tropical mountain, the bungalows and vilas are a comfortable combination of traditional spanish style and modern design. The staff are nice and very friendly. Riccardo, the resort manager was going above and beyond to accommodate all requests. We really enjoyed the...

My wife and i were looking for a vacation where we could just relax from the stressful world of work and kids in NY. Recreo provided us with everything we were looking for and it proved to be one of the very best vacations/locations we had ever been to. We traveled with another couple and I would strongly recommend traveling...

Upon arriving at villa#10, we had a difficult time choosing our rooms as each room was better than the next! I was lucky enough to wake up every morning to spectacular sunrises! The house was perfect for us.....myself and three couples. Every morning we had a breakfast of very fresh local fruits...pineapple, mango, papaya...and an assorment of delicious treats. We...

If you are looking for a place with night life, paved roads, comfortable beds, access to alcohol that tastes good and is not overly priced, and proximity to anything do not come here!

recreo, Manager at Recreo, responded to this review

At Recreo, we are proud of our remote and very private location surrounded by beaches, national parks and forests with only a few traditional small towns in the nearby vicinity which affords our guests the opportunity to truly immerse themselves in the beauty of the natural surroundings and to experience the true Costa Rica. It is not unusual for guests...

Before booking my trip to Recreo i was amazed that 99.9% of the reviews were EXCELLENT. I figured that the reviews were generated by people connected to the resort, so I was excited, but skeptical about whether it would live up to the rave reviews. Now that my trip is over I have to say that it actually exceeded my...

“Call and discuss the pros and cons of the various homes w/ someone from Recreo before you select one. That way you make sure you get one that works best for you. They're all different.”
