One if the best places we've been! Great food, excellent service and the facilities are in good care. Amazing landscape! Beautiful ocean view! Good prices. It's close to beautiful beaches, not too far from San Jose. They also have a sanctuary, and you can take tours from the hotel to different activities such as whales tour, canopy, etc!

We stayed at Villas Alturas for two days in late August and were thrilled with the experience. The room was very roomy, had a full kitchen and drinkable water. The pool outside has a great view and the place is crawling with wildlife. Definitely one of the most impressive properties I've stayed at for the price point.
