Tropical garden was so well maintained that looked like some sort of Luxurious Villa. Exotic sounds at night makes you feel like you are in the "Heart of Costa Rica". I... More

You check in at road level and then descend stairs to which ever room / building you have rented. Each of the rooms has views of the beautiful gardens and the ocean below. The gardens on the property are well maintained and marked.... More

As a gay couple my husband and I wanted a vacation where we could completely relax in a safe fun relaxing environment. We travel frequently and know the risks of staying at an unknown place.We were completely surprised at the service, views and close proximity to everything we needed. Villa Roca's staff went overboard to meet our needs. Consequently, we'll... More

Located high atop the hills this is a gay owned and operated hotel/resort very much in the style of Santorini. Not sure how many rooms there are but they are on multi split levels.
