The most beautiful twelve days of my life.
Las ventanas offers views that can't be beat. The sunsets at the pool were absolutely breathtaking, and I spent more time than I would care to admit just staring at the horizon from my balcony.
The service here is wonderful and all of the staff is so incredibly friendly. Even with an occasional language barrier, I had some great interactions with all of the staff. Albert took wonderful care of us throughout our stay, and was consistently available for any of our questions or concerns. Everything went off without a hitch.
The location is amazing. Being up the mountain away from the rest of the world is extraordinary, and then you are just a quick trip down the mountain to some great food and a beautiful beach in Carillo. Just down the road is the more vibrant town of Samara, and there is tonnes to do and see.
I would recommend this spot to anyone who has the opportunity to stay here.
Love Costa Rica. It's people, its cuisine, its beauty, its EVERYTHING! First time to this part of Costa Rica. Love its slower vibe compared to the more touristy areas. Albert is the best - professional, helpful, and always available for anything you may need, from a boat charter to a car rental. He made it all so easy and relaxing!
The view from our condo and the infinity pool was incredible. Everything was well cared for and very nice. Albert took great care of us from fishing trips, hooking us up with ATV tours, to helping us coordinate Asdrubal to come to our condo and cook breakfast and dinner for us most days. IT WAS AMAZING!
Our group went to Peace Lodge at the top of the mountain for dinner twice. Food and Wine were great!
Gusto's beach bar was a short drive down the mountain and great time during the day for lunch and cocktails.
Love this resort!!!! Love the people
Can't wait to go back!! Don't miss the sunset. The best view of the ocean and mountains I have ever seen!!!!
The town of Samara, which is close by, was so much fun to explore. The town was extremely gluten free friendly which is important to my family with our dietary restrictions. The restaurants on the beach had excellent food and a fun atmosphere. The beaches were not crowded at all! I have traveled to a lot of places and the norm is fighting over beach chairs early in the morning and then fighting crowds all day. That is not the case here, Samara is truly a hidden gem! The house we stayed in was breathtaking; having two master bedrooms in addition to the other two guest rooms was clutch when traveling with more than one family. Having a private pool was an added bonus, we spent a lot of time there! This allowed flexibility and food/beverages to be easy to obtain whenever needed. We had a chef come and cook us dinner every other night while we stayed here and that was probably my favorite part of the trip. The food was awesome and we got to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery while the chef did his thing. Everyone who joined me on this vacation was more than impressed with the house and absolutely loved the location and the fact that you didn't feel like you were in a tourist trap. Would love to come back here, one of my favorite vacations so far!
