“Beautiful Villa Perfect for Large Groups”
Reviewed 18 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We took 16 members of our family to Costa Rica and stayed at Villa Tranquilla in Hacienda Panilla. The villa was incredible - the eight private bedroom suites, 10 bathrooms and two large family areas were beautiful and comfortable. The property came with a daily maid service and available catering services. The grounds were large and beautiful, as was the pool. We were four minutes from the beach and beach club ammenities and surrounded by a beautiful golf course. We will rent this villa again when we take another family vacation to Costa Rica.

“Our Family Retreat”
Reviewed 20 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Villa Tranquila was the destination for our family reunion that included 17 people. The 3 acre Villa located right on the golf course fairway was perfect. Everyone was very pleased with the beautiful property and accommodations. The 8 spacious and comfortable bedrooms included their own bathroom, sitting room, beach towels, bathrobes and mini-refrigerator. All the rooms in the house were cleaned daily, including the pool and the BBQ grill - wonderful. Our hats off to Eugene, the property manager, and Sary for taking such good care of us. They helped with grocery shopping the first day and made several suggestions on things to do in the area. We especially liked going to the National Park which included horseback riding, tubing down a river, a zipline through the canyon and mud painting at the hot springs - quite an adventure! Lunch was also include. A short drive from the villa, is an amazing private beach with shade, beach chairs and gorgeous water. There are tide pools to explore and a bay with sand and surf and plenty of sea shells. It truly is a beautiful beach, especially at sunset. The property also comes with 4 bikes that you can ride for miles on the golf cart paths. There are so many things to do and we took advantage of as many as possible in order to make our vacation truly memorable. It is our pleasure to recommend Villa Tranquila and hopefully we can make a return visit in the future.

“Great Stay and Excellent Hospitality”
Reviewed 18 July 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We had an excellent stay and Eugene and his wife could not have been nicer and more hospitable. I would recommend that groups either have a car or golf cart as the beach is about a 5 to 7 minute ride from the house. Hope to make it back soon!

“Amazing Vacation at an Amazing Home!”
Reviewed 6 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

From the moment we arrived at Villa Tranquila everything exceeded our expectations. I was nervous as I had made all the travel plans for our three families to stay for a week but I was the hero all week long for finding this amazing home. There were 17 of us and there was plenty of space for us all with beds to spare. The home itself was beautiful, spacious and clean. It had all the modern amenities including wifi, satellite TV with Netflix, 3 large refrigerators, etc. and double filtered water that didn't cause any problems for us American travelers. The daily maid service with Mariela was a bonus that you don't find in most vacation rentals and she was great. The grounds and pool were very well maintained and made us feel like we were at our own private resort. Everyone loved seeing iguanas roaming around the driveway and monkeys in the trees across the street in the evenings. We felt close enough to everything that it was no big deal to get around, but the privacy and seclusion of this location definitely lives up to its name of Villa Tranquila. We rented golf carts for the week and the kids loved the freedom of heading to the private beach or exploring the golf course grounds whenever they wanted. When they say private beach, that is no exaggeration. I don't know if this is always the case, but we had the beach to ourselves for as far as we could see every time we went throughout the week. And the beach was beautiful with tropical trees lining the soft sand, great waves for the kids to play in and very comfortable water temperature.
The property manager Eugene and his wife Sary went above and beyond to make every aspect of our stay worry free and they helped create the best memories possible. Every recommendation they made was spot on. Eugene has many contacts and could make suggestions and arrange deals for any adventure or activity we came up with. It was like visiting friends and having them hook us up with the places the locals know best. We loved the afternoon Catamaran cruise, and the full day volcano adventure at Buena Vista and other adventures. I would recommend not planning too much though as it would be a shame to leave this paradise every day and not fully enjoy all the property has to offer.

We would definitely recommend this home to anyone and hope to be able to return here someday ourselves.

“Awesome Stay Once Again at Villa Tranquila”
Reviewed 10 May 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Second stay at Villa Tranquila
We just returned for our second week at Villa Tranquila. We enjoyed another fantastic week. The villa is such a special place for a family vacation. It is so large, clean and has everything you could want during your stay, from the large pool to the fast internet and smart TVs to watch Netflix in your suites. One of the children said this house has everything and he is right. There is so much to do in the area that you couldn’t do and see it all in a month or more. The beach is just 4 minutes away. There is so many different activities in the area. We were able to ride horses, go 4 wheeling, zip lining, snorkeling, tubing and rent a catamaran for a wonderful half day cruise. The mountains are about a one hours drive away with all they have to offer. The people are all so friendly and accommodating. The staff at the villa are the best and want to see you have the most fantastic stay you could have in Costa Rica. We have stayed at other villas in several countries and I can tell you Villa Tranquila is the best villa we have stayed in. I give it the highest recommendation I can give. If you want an unbelievable fantastic vacation stay at Villa Tranquila and enjoy all Costa Rica has to offer. With all the new airlines flying into Liberia the airfare prices are dropping at a rapid rate. This makes travel to and from Costa Rica very affordable. I can’t wait to be back.
