Incredible - 5 Star Vacation

Review submitted: August 18, 2014   Date of arrival: August 8, 2014

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

Pura Vida!

Review submitted: August 4, 2014   Date of arrival: July 26, 2014

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! :-)

Owners response: Thank you for your extremely kind words Erika, they encourage us to keep working on this direction. We are glad you appreciate our job and that you and your family had a memorable vacation in Costa Rica, this is what we aim for - do our best so that your stay at Villa Preciosa Resort becomes the best vacation ever in Costa Rica.
Thank you once more, regards to all the family and hope to see you again soon.

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.

Owners response: 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.

Gorgeous home, gorgeous view, great host and staff

Review submitted: March 6, 2014   Date of arrival: February 22, 2014

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.

Owners response: Thank you David for your kind words, It was a pleasure to host such a nice family like yours. I am glad you had a great time at Villa Preciosa, and enjoyed all the activities, You were a very active group and had time to experience many of them. As you said, our personalized attention is our strength and that is what we love to do - spend time with our guests and make sure you have a memorable vacation in Costa Rica. Hope to see you again soon.

This is the place to stay!

Review submitted: February 7, 2014   Date of arrival: January 27, 2014

A wonderful time to get away from the winter cold in January. The weather was perfect and Costa Rica is beautiful. The house itself was large and very pretty and maintained, the staff was amazing and the food was delicious. I would recommend going here if you have a large group - lots of room for everyone and a great location into town and from the airport. Carlos is very accommodating, helpful throughout the planning process and has great tips and advice for local attractions and activities. Had a wonderful dinner off-site at Citron, sport fishing and white water rafting were close by too. Go to Liberia and stay here!

Villa Preciosa is a beautiful house with spectacular views. Best part is Carlos and his hospitality. The outdoor space with the views of Playa Ocotal are my favorite. Food and service were outstanding. Great place for large groups. Highly recommend.

spectacular week at Villa Preciosa Resort

Review submitted: January 7, 2014   Date of arrival: December 30, 2013

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.

Costa Rica - Pura Vida

Review submitted: January 2, 2014   Date of arrival: December 25, 2013

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.....

Owners response: Dear Ric,
Thank you for your kind words and for letting us be part of your vacation. It was a pleasure to have all of you at Villa preciosa Resort, and we hope you come back again soon.

Review submitted: April 29, 2013   Date of arrival: February 7, 2013

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.

Owners response: We are so glad you had a great time in Costa Rica and especially in Villa Preciosa, we also had a great time with all of you. It was a pleasure to help you with the tours and all the others activities, remember that I told you that Villa Preciosa is not just a villa rental, it is much more, it is a personalize vacation and as I said it was a pleasure to help you having such a good time in Costa Rica. If you need in the future anything from Costa Rica, please just let me know and I will be glad to help you. Thank you for such a wonderful review.
