    Carlos and Oro, thank you for such a wonderful trip, we had the best trip ever!,The villa was as you told us, everything perfect and beautiful. All the rooms very spacious to fit our large group. And what about the views? I will never forget that view from the infinity pool while drinking a margarita enjoying the views of the Papagayo Bay and the islands. Thanks to all the team, the food was awesome, and the service even better. Thank you for all the assistance on the Tours and everything else, we had a great experience and all my family loved the trip.

    The Villa was more stunning in real life than online. Our gaggle of families had the best week one could imagine. The Villa manager Carlos is a really great host and the Chef (Churri) and the rest of the staff were fantastic. They fed us all so well I am not sure we exercised enough to make up for it but, heck, its vacation. The house is very close to the quiet secluded Playa Ocotal and a 3K car ride to the larger and more commercial (but still very mellow) Playa Coco. Its hard to find a flaw with the Villa and our stay. We would highly recommend this place to families – lots to do – sailing, adventure activities, wave runners, great beaches, very hilly roads for great walks, etc. We had 19 people and we felt very much at home without being cramped. A plus…..

    Just finished a spectacular week at the Villa Preciosa with three other families and our children. Carlos and his staff were great hosts. The food prepared by chef, Churi, was excellent. Plenty of activities to chose from or just spend time on the patio enjoying the view. We look forward to returning and would highly recommend.

    This Place is a absoulute paradise. The house is beautiful and our family had the time of our life. We went for my moms 60th birthday and all 18 of us slept very comfortable. The food that the chef prepared daily was some of the best food I have ever had. Carlos was great to work with and took time out of his day to take us to private beaches and was always there to give us good recommendations. I hope we can go back one day.

      Thank you for your kind words, it always gratifying to hear great things about the good work done by my team and about our property. It was a pleasure for us to have you and your family at our house and I am so glad you had a great time and like the villa, as I told you some of the differences between a large resort and our villa is the privacy and the personalize attention you get at Villa Preciosa and as I can realize for your review it seems you enjoyed. Come back soon and thank you for choosing Villa Preciosa Resort.

  • David says:

    Staying here was an amazing experience. Our group had 18 people. The meals were world-class and the staff were all accommodating and sincere in their efforts to make our experience a memorable one. Carlos was an amazing host. He was at the home for every meal and pretty available and at the house any time to answer questions and help with any requests. He chartered a boat for us, he took us to a secluded snorkeling beach, and he gave us great recommendations to fun places and the best shops to go to. We hope to return. Very highly recommended.

    I booked this villa for my husband’s family of 14 for my in-laws 70th birthday. The owner, Carlos, was amazing throughout the entire planning process (suggesting tour companies, babysitters to help with the 6 kids, etc). Everything about this villa on the internet looked amazing, but it was not until we finally arrived that we truly realized how amazing it really was. The view from the villa is breathtaking and the pool was amazing. Every morning we were able to see monkeys from our window or the balcony along with beautiful birds and other wildlife. The staff immediately treated us like family. The cook (Rosaura, aka Churi) and her helper (Yahaira) cooked the most delicious food we had ever eaten– and this is coming from people that have eaten at some pretty luxurious restaurants 🙂 For each meal they also prepared special meals for my husband (he is lactose intolerant), my father-in-law (allergic to seafood), and my brother-in-law (who has other crazy allergies). Luies (the bartender) was also very helpful and such a great person! Carlos, the owner, chartered his boat and took the men deep sea fishing for part of the day and took the rest of us to a private beach for the remaining part of the day which was amazing! He also arranged for a few of us to have spa services at the house on the second floor balcony, which was awesome! It can be very difficult to please such a large and diverse group of people, but everything about our time in Costa Rica was perfect! Everyone had a great time and loved everything about the villa! As a travel agent myself, I will definitely recommend this villa to all of my clients and our family will definitely visit this villa again as we already miss all of our new family there! 🙂

    Absolutely incredible villa. The resort is in a beautiful location, extremely clean & breath taking views. The staff is very hospitable, professional & amazing. The meals, you cannot even begin to describe, are the best we have ever had. Carlos & the rest of the staff went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. We honestly did not have one compliant about our stay! Truly amazing! We look forward to returning to Costa Rica

    Our stay with Carlos and staff at the Villa Preciosa couldn’t have been better. We came through customs, kids and grandkids gathered together, and Carlos, the owner of the Villa came walking up calling me by name. He went with us to the rental car location, helped us load luggage and then was our guide in his car to the Villa. When we walked in it was like home! Snacks and juice for us, immaculate, and a location and view just as we had read and been told, looking out over the ocean, secluded, safe and beautiful! The kids were in the amazing pool first thing in the morning and everyday during the stay. Carlos and staff were the best! They were friends immediately, kind and loving to us and the kids. The food couldn’t have been better. My wife asked me to take a picture of the table everyday because of how it was set. The house was immaculate with cleaning done by staff daily. Carlos was so helpful with deciding on things to do. He took us on a boat trip to a secluded beach. We saw whales on the way! Snorkeled and played. Needed another day on the trip to do it again. We took an ATV trip with a tour group to 5 beaches, went on a tour with horse back riding and zip lines, went to Tamarindo Beach to boogie board and surf, to Africa Mia and fed the zebras and giraffe’s who were standing right next to us, and, we went to the local beach. Everywhere we went we felt safe. At the end of the trip, the kids asked if we could come back in 4-5 years. Then they said or 3 years, or 2 years, or next year. We will be back! Couldn’t be more grateful for Carlos and staff helping it to be the trip we dreamed it would be.

  • Don says:

    We had the pleasure of staying at Villa Preciosa for a week in March 2015 and a wonderful family time. It was a wonderful experience and world class in every way. Carlos and his team provided exceptional accommodation, food and helpful tips on sights to see. He took us deep sea fishing on his own boat and loaned us his fishing equipment to do so. If you go, it will be an experience you will never forget. Churi is a wonderful cook and could hold her own in any kitchen with imaginative dishes and an ability to cater to any diet. Jimmy is a perfect host as well. The rooms are very spacious and the villa is in immaculate condition.
    Carlos and his wife are amazing hosts and will stop at nothing to insure your enjoyment. Carlos wife took one of the guests to a local doctor and pharmacy and made sure he was well taken care of.

    After coming back from our Costa Rica vacation, I have recommended Villa Preciosa to EVERYONE. Carlos and his incredible staff made our stay unforgettable. They were so welcoming and accommodating, everyday, for any/all needs (which I’m sure was not an easy feat for a large group of 17).
    All of the meals here were well planned, beautifully presented, and delicious- and I mean every single meal- top quality. The bartender was non-stop making delicious tropical drinks while joking and laughing right along with us.
    The rooms are all immaculate, very spacious, and each have a unique and stunning view of the ocean.
    Carlos recommended a tour service which was super great, and took great care of us- even stopping during the bus ride to point out some howler monkeys!).
    If you are on this site, reading these reviews- just stop what you’re doing and book your stay here already! I highly recommend Villa Preciosa, and cannot say enough about how amazing this place is.

    Villa Preciosa is an incredible property not just because of the house and the scenery, but also because of the service. Carlos has absolutely nailed the model for a great vacation property and its amenities – it was amazing. Jimmy was a gracious daily host and provided us with anything we needed during our stay as well as humoring us with great conversation! Thank you for taking time away from your busy job to ensure we felt like we were welcomed and for satisfying our curiosities about your culture and the Costa Rican way! As a group of 15, some of our time on vacations is always spent looking for the next place to eat. Villa Preciosa solves that problem by providing a full chef service. Chef Daniel, Yeyson and Alexis cooked us delicious meals for breakfast and dinner every night after we arrived home from our day’s events. When someone had to stay home from one of our excursions, lunch was also provided. We were absolutely spoiled and always ensured we ate lightly at lunch so that we could enjoy our evening meal! 🙂 One always wonders if the pictures on these rentals accurately portray the actual property itself, but this time, it absolutely was accurate. Our family was amazed with the views and even the experience the house provided. Howler monkeys were within sight and earshot allowing us to feel the true Costa Rican vibe even while we were at the house! Carlos provided us suggestions on excursions which allowed us to enjoy Costa Rica to its fullest. Lupita from Vargas Tours was there every morning we went out and could suggest changes for the next day based on our feedback. Our two guides, Stefan and Luis, were incredible as well! We were able to see volcanoes, rain forest, transitional forest, waterfalls, experience zip lining, horseback riding, mud bath, hot springs, water slide, wildlife, cooking classes – and I have probably forgotten a few things! The catamaran was terrific as well – and we thoroughly enjoyed it after a week of land activities. It provided us with a sailing, snorkeling, kayaking and water boarding activities. Overall, I cannot say enough pleasant things about Villa Preciosa or our time in Costa Rica. Thank you Carlos for everything – we hope to be back one day!

    We were a group of 14 with ages ranging from 5 to 64 and everyone had a fabulous vacation. We also organized a surprise wedding at the villa with Carlos’ help for the photographer and officiant, and we managed to keep it secret from all the family until the ceremony started. Everything about the vacation was perfect. The villa was very comfortable with fabulous views and everyone having their own bedroom & bathroom. The food was fabulous and varied, and nobody was hungry after any meal. We loved the huge central dining table (made by Carlos) where we could all sit comfortably for meals. The key feature is the staff – from Jimmy who keeps everything organized and the cocktails flowing, to Daniel and Alex in the kitchen with tasty and beautifully presented food, to the domestic staff who keep the villa very tidy and provided excellent service. Carlos was extremely helpful & courteous with all the arrangements both for the vacation itself and for an earlier visit to the villa to do all the planning, plus organizing tours and contacts for us. We have done this sort of vacation a number of times in USA and Dom Rep and this was our best experience.

    March 10 to March 20 will forever remain in our memories as an amazing 10 day family vacation! We had high expectations based on reviews but from the moment we stepped through the door our expectations were exceeded. Carlos was consistently easy to work with during the planning stages and answered every question we had during our stay. Jimmy was much more than a bartender or server. He was the “go to person” for everything. We were constantly asking him questions. Daniel is a master chef and with the help of Alexia put 5 star meals on the table every single day. Taste was delicious and presentation was amazing. We have spent a lot of time at other vacation rentals worrying about cleaning, organizing, and picking up. The wonderful housekeeping staff took care of all of this for us allowing us to truly relax on our vacation. Thank you to Carlos and the entire staff for a perfect family vacation!

  • Ralph D. says:

    Carlos and his team did an amazing job taking care of us. I brought my family and a few friends to Costa Rica and chose this property because of its proximity to the beach, views, staff, and how responsive Carlos was to all of our concerns. The house is even more beautiful and spacious than it appears in the pictures, and it is meticulously maintained. There were no visible lapses in maintenance, cleaning or care. Meals were excellent. The chef is very skilled not only at preparing delicious meals, but was very helpful in meeting special dietary needs of me and some of our guests. Whatever we requested was done exactly as we asked, from fresh flowers waiting for my wife and daughters to having almond milk available upon our arrival. I cannot gush enough about this property and the service we received. It was truly one of the most relaxing and worry free rentals I’ve ever had.
