This place is absolutely amazing, a true paradise. Its hard to describe how beautiful and peaceful the villas are. Surrounded by jungle and colorful animals, with an amazing view. The hosts are the kindest people and extremely knowledgeable about everything Costa Rica. Afternoons were spent lounging around the open air main house or hiking to the many waterfalls on the...

The property is spectacular, in addition to the food and service. We spent our days on local adventures, and the afternoons at the pool. The beach is a short ride down the hill, with shopping down the road. Fantastic place!

Villa Mareas accomodated our 3 generation family group which ranged from 5 to 57 with perfection. The house and grounds provided us with a plethora of activities to keep everyone busy. We hiked to all the waterfalls on the property and spent a good deal of time exploring the native flora and fauna. We spotted capuchin and howler monkeys, many...

You cannot describe how special this place is. I stayed here with a group of friends and we were looking for a most relaxing and beautiful place. Private, secluded, in the jungle.
