Guestbook comments from the owner

This was the perfect spot for our get together with long time friends to celebrate my mom's birthday. The owners were extremely helpful with making arrangements and even custom built a ramp for my mom who is disabled to access the condo! The location was perfect for our 3 year old-we were literally steps away from the pool and family friendly restaurant. The beach, also steps away, was secluded, safe for swimming and great for snorkeling -turtles came up and laid eggs on the beach three nights during our stay. The condo was equipped with beach toys, boogie boards and snorkel gear. The condo was spacious, has a great kitchen and open floor plan downstairs. We loved sitting on the patio early in the morning and listening to the howler monkeys and watching the sunset while we cooked up fresh caught fish. It was so nice to feel like when we arrived we didn't have to go anywhere else- and for a couple days we didn't -we just enjoyed our little piece of paradise! We hope to return again soon!

My husband, teenage son and I spent a week at the Villa. The Village is spacious, beautifully decorated and well equipped. My son an I had a terrific time snorkeling and body surfing at the private beach just steps away. The pool, pool bar and Picante Restaurant are also steps away from the villa. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The Villa is in close proximity to many of the beautiful sights to see in Costa Rica. We had a terrific time and will be back next year.

I highly recommend this villa! We stayed there with our young kids and it was perfect. It was right next to the pool which we nearly had to ourselves. Everything that we needed was at the villa- boogie boards,snorkling gear,beach toys and chairs. It has a wonderful view. If we come back to the area, we will definitely stay here again.

Fantastic location and set up, comfortable house

  • 5 of 5
We were very happy to have stayed here among all the choices one has. Bahia Pez Vela in general was the perfect spot for us (family with two young kids). Very private beach with few visitors compared to so many, safe for swimming and snorkeling (Costa Rican beaches can have serious riptides, waves and undertows--this was relatively calm). Clean. The resort is made up of a cluster of villas with very well kept grounds, a very convenient restaurant, Picante, serving excellent food, and pools. Cesar in the office was a pleasure to work with and all staff were courteous and helpful.

While the resort has a very private feel, it also offers easy access to Coco (with lots of restaurants, shops and grocery stores) as well as the main Ocotal beach (restaurant such as Father Roosters, scuba diving shop, fishing, etc.) For us it was the best of both worlds--proximity to conveniences when we wanted them yet a private, clean and safe area to relax and enjoy the paradise.

This villa is spacious, comfortable and in very clean condition. Kitchen is stocked with utensils and appliances and the laundry room has laundry as well as snorkeling equipment and a collection of sand toys and such that were helpful for us. Remember to bring laundry detergent or buy some, as well as shampoo. Otherwise, the house is set with supplies.

The owner was very responsive before and during the trip. On our first day there, the a/c in the living room was on the fritz. We contacted the owner directly as reception was closed being saturday night and he helped us right away with troubleshooting. When that didn't work he made sure to line up help. It was Easter Sunday and yet first thing in the morning it was repaired. Really appreciated the responsiveness of the owner and the crew.

It was paradise! I highly recommend both the villa as well as the resort in general. A wonderful set up.

A really enjoyable stay at a beautiful resort. Loved the layout of e unit and it's proximity to the ocean, pool and restaurant. Cesar and Isabelle from the resort reception office were very helpful and helped us line up a rental car and fishing trip.

Do not want to go home

  • 4 of 5
I am writing this review at our last night in the villa (11), Villa Calla. Very, very nice! I hesitate to give 5 stars only because our first night was a birthday party at Picante restaurant (separately owned from community), and it was very loud with fireworks, with our children trying to sleep. HOWEVER, I highly recommend this villa, and this community overall. Very friendly, and over-accommodating. Isabel in Recepcion arranged a special Iron Man birthday cake for one of my daughters, to be in Villa at arrival (since she did not have a cake at her birthday a couple weeks previous). So wonderful and more than I expected! Also, in the mornings, little parrots, howler monkeys, pelicans and snorkel/spear fisherman in the bay. Loved it! Villa was clean and everything we needed was here. Small lizards at night - fun to watch. Iguanas crossing the road in the daytime. Coati in the forest nearby, and howler monkeys in the morning. One with a little baby on its back. Also, Tiger heron and hermit crabs and other crabs to watch. So wonderful! Only drawback, we gringos got burned a bit on our 2nd day, so needed to cover up more than we would have liked. Also did snorkel tour (not recommended, due to not quite clear water) and Guachepelin adventure tour (very highly recommended!). So wonderful. Thank you to the owners for a very much anticipated, beautiful family vacation at your villa.

From the Owner

Costa Rica is so unique - the Tico's are friendly, hardworking and very modest. the safe environment allows everyone the opportunity to explore their natural wonders. There's so much to see and do within an hour and half drive from the villa that you will want to come back, just like us.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Liberia at 25 Miles Nearest Golf : Sardinal at 10 Miles Nearest Beach : Ocotal at 500 Metres Car: recommended

We are perfectly situated to explore the natural wonders of Costa Rica's six National parks, unspoiled beaches, volcanoes, hot springs, rain forest and diverse wildlife. Enjoy world-class scuba diving, surfing, snorkel ling and deep-sea fishing in the blue waters of the Papagayo Gulf - the gem of the Guanacaste Province. Because the villa is located at Bahia Pez Vela Resort, guests can choose from over 17-guided tours to go on with one of their hand picked English-speaking guides.
