“Great wonderful environment, staff and location”
Reviewed 8 September 2009

I just spent a month at Norma's during the off season. Absolutely a great place to stay. Cooking facilities and stand alone homes. Mine was a one bedroom with a combination living room kitchen. Perfect for one or two. The grounds are perfectly maintained as are the units... No heat-- no air-- NONE NEEDED. Perfect weather.

Conveniently located to San Jose, the mountain sites, volcanoes, and the beaches. Use this place to see the country by day trips in cars... or conveniently arranged tours, massages, etc. Ask Norma... she can help with everything. If you speak a little Spanish, the staff is always cordial and nice. especially Carlos.. Laundry care available also.. Very secure with some very good restaurants near by.

Basketball, tennis courts, pavilion, three pools, lots of fresh fruit on the on site trees.. and beautiful tropical flowers with mountains surrounding...

Enjoy..

My two-day stay at Norma's Villas was a perfect way to start my two-week vacation in Costa Rica. Rick met me at the airport and drove me to the compound - ten fenced acres with diffferent sizes of villas/cottages, a common social area with couches and chairs next to the upper pool, a second large swimming pool with an adjoining covered area with four hammocks, trails, a stream, and a laundry facility accessible to guests.

I stayed in a lovely villa/cottage with a kitchen. I enjoyed swimming - there are two large pools - and relaxing in the hammocks provided. Guests are free to wander the ten acres - and birds and butterflies are abundant.

Rick & Carlos (Norma was away for a family gathering) make you feel right at home and provide mamy services - including laundry facilities and free phone calls within Costa Rica.

There were several couples staying there at the same time and, I believe, a family with children. This is a great place for anyone - as a single woman traveling solo, I was made to feel totally welcome and comfortable.

  • Liked — provided everything I needed and excellent, friendly service and atmosphere, and its beautifil.
  • Disliked — Nothing.

My husband and I stayed at Norma's Villas for the months of Feb. and March of 2008. We have nothing but good to say about the facilities and the family that owns the villas. The property is beautiful, pools awesome and climate the best. There is lots to do right on the property but it is also located close to the airport, San Jose, Alajuela and all Central Valley attractions. Located on a main bus line it makes travel throughout Costa Rica convient and inexpensive. For a relaxing and fulfilling vacation we highly recommend Norma's. We will definitely be returning.

  • Liked — location, staff, facilities
  • Disliked — nothing really maybe no hot water in sinks
