“"Paradise Villa" description is right on.”
Reviewed 9 August 2011 for a stay in August 2011

I rented Villa Paraiso for a 40th birthday special vacation with four couples all from Houston, TX. It completely blew us away and was the vacation of a lifetime. I was a little nervous renting from a company and a villa with little or no online reviews.

Let's just say the place exceeded all expectatons. This was a major splurge for us and quite expensive - but if you have a special occasion and really want to go over the top (or have a lot more money than me!), this is your place.

The architecture and attention to detail is amazing - beautiful wood, colors, artwork, iron, etc. throughout. The place is in great condition with a full-time on-site maid. The pool area with infinity pool overlooking the Pacific took the cake - we spend most of our time there. They also had a wine cellar with honor system serve yourself policy and a full movie theater for nightly movies. Place also had good wifi and cell access if staying connected is important.

Also in addition to the live-in maid, we arranged for a chef and bartender to come, and also had a driver and car on standby.

My only knocks which I consider minor are that the driveway is steep and poorly maintained, making access quite difficult. It's also about 5 minutes from a small village (Dominical) and about 45 minutes from the nearest real town (Quepos). The beach in front of the place is walkable (down the treacherous driveway, no walk in the park) but is muddy and rocky so after one scouting trip by one couple, the rest of us never went (but you can drive to nice beaches). However none of these factors detracted in the least and we loved being out of the way. When you sit on the pool deck, you see nothing but ocean and hard to know you're near any civilization at all.

In short, I highly recommend this place if you want to splurge on a vacation you'll never forget and can afford the high price tag. We loved it and seriously may come again sometime down the road.
