My god. A great place. Be sure to be able to: 1. Do nothing 2. Read books. 3. Bask in the pure beauty around you. 4. Drive a golf cart and enjoy it. 5. Deal with no a/c in the gym, and some power outages at times. Recreo was amazing for us. The food was great (go all fish if...

Our group of myself and my wife and our three kids (16, 10, 9) visited Recreo the last week of August. It was the "rainy season" but only rained once during the day and once at night. Our family wanted to go on an adventure for vacation and found Recreo searching the internet. Our family stayed in Villa #10. It...

Thanks to great guidance from Christina, Recreo's Liaison, we were matched with a villa that was perfect for our family. Grandparents, with children and grandchildren,...seven in all. The support from staff was phenomenal. We received everything we needed before we knew we needed it. The views from the villa are magnificent. The private pool outside our door was gorgeous and...

Our week long vacation at Recreo was incredible! Based on the reviews and the pictures on this site we knew it would be beautiful but still our jaws hit the floor when we drove up and stepped into Villa #7. The views from every room of this villa are stunning from morning until night. It's the highest villa on Recreo's...

Recreo was out of this world! It really was a trip of a lifetime. Don't ask me how I found out about it but I spent several weeks researching the best place to go to for our honeymoon and boy was it worth it! We stayed here for ten days and during that time we only saw one other honeymooning...

This was our second time here at house #10. We went in April of 2008 last time. Very different landscape. It was just after the rainy season so it was very lush. There were different birds. I loved the flock of green parrots that flew over our house daily. The monkeys were still visible even with the leaves. The staff...

Upon our arrival it was cloudy and started to rain. At which point I was thinking, oh my God, we're going to spend our entire trip inside because it's not gonna stop. Bummer. However, it stopped as quickly as it had started ;-) Our stay was a week long, and it rained more, but for very short periods of time....

I have been long overdue to write a review about Recreo since we got back to the States on July 2. This place is GREAT! We stayed in Villa #10 which was roomy, gorgeous, and had a fabulous view.

“Call and discuss the pros and cons of the various homes w/ someone from Recreo before you select one. That way you make sure you get one that works best for you. They're all different.”
