"Wow! Wow! Wow!"

5 of 5 stars. Reviewed March 17, 2016

After arrival and intake by the wonderful Martine, who took exceptionally good care of us and was very thorough in her explanations and recommendations in the area. We were served a delicious lunch by Coco the chef. We didn't actually make it to our room till a good hour and a half after we arrived. Once we did... Whoa! I did seriously ask my partner to pinch me because I couldn't actually believe I was actually witnessing a view that beautiful. The also have a spectacular deck that you can watch some pretty spectacular sunsets. We had an outta this world wonderful time and the service was top notch. I would not hesitate to recommend the staff and the Villa to anyone, I can't wait to get back there one day.

"Heaven on Earth"

5 of 5 stars. Reviewed March 16, 2016

Perfect for couples and for peace and quiet. This place is stunningly beautiful with excellent customer service. We were lucky enough to have Coco cook for us as he is an exceptional chef and person, who made our experience even more delightful. We highly recommend staying here and doing the hike into Corcovado Park but you can also see plenty of Macaw's, Humming Birds and even Capuchin Monkey's on the property.

Room Tip: Ask for a Toucan villa with a plunge pool

"Off the charts perfection!"

This was our second visit to Laguna Vista Villas this year, (our 4th in the past 3 years), and to be honest, we were a bit concerned that it just couldn't possibly be as magical as each previous visit. We were right...Incredibly enough, it was even BETTER!

Since our last visit in March of 2015, the kitchen and dining areas have undergone a remarkable upgrade, and the grounds and cottages look even more appealing. The new manager, Martine, is energetic and adorable, and she is dedicated to helping you make the very most of your trip, whether you want to be utterly active, just sit and veg in the crazy gorgeous environment, or somewhere in between. For us, the true beauty of LVV is in the authenticity of a small, rustic rainforest eco-lodge, with an incredibly attentive staff and more natural beauty than one can absorb.

Our days were spent kayaking, body surfing on the private beach (at low tide), fishing, hiking, swimming in the infinity pool, and simply enjoying the magic of the rain forest and its incredible flora and fauna from our private plunge pool on our private deck. The fantastic fresh-squeezed margaritas definitely added to the experience!

"Great stay with terrific views"

5 of 5 stars. Reviewed March 7, 2016

Our family (2 boys 6 and 11) from Germany stayed here in Feb 2016 for 3 nights. After a rough 90 min drive from Porto Jimenez we were more than happy to find this little paradise. The team is just great, esp. Martine, the manager, and Coco, the cook. They were especially wonderful with the kids. Full meal board is delicious and includes great ideas from local kitchen. We had a space bungalow with our own lunch pool - so we could use both: this one and the very nice designed large infinity pool. Although you feel a 100% in the middle of nature everything is very comfortable and clean. Definitely a great place and team to be very much recommended for Costa Rica. Best regards Bernhard

Room Tip: Great space bungalows with outdoor shower, plunge pool and terrific view to laguna and ocean

"Best Kept Secret In Costa Rica"

5 of 5 stars. Reviewed March 16, 2016

I cannot begin to find enough words to describe how wonderful this place is. I traveled with a group of women to this amazing place and enjoyed every moment of my time there.

Martine is wonder women who helped make sure we had the experience of a lifetime on our first visit to Costa Rica. Coco is a culinary genius who fed us like Queens while we were there.

We enjoyed a room with an amazing view and loved waking up to the sound of Howler Monkeys. Pictures cannot do the place justice. Enjoying dinner by candlelight every night was a highlight to me. The views from where the villas sit is just breathtaking!

I'm so happy to have found this place and almost want to keep it a secret so I bring my family back one day and it be unchanged. You won't regret coming here!!

Room Tip: be sure to have a margarita!
