“Casa fantastica was fantastic”
Reviewed 21 September 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We were part of a huge destination wedding party. The house was great. Ricky was great. The excursions were great. The wildlife did come to us and the open space living room/pool worked great in the hot weather. The chef and help were wonderful. Truly a fantastic place.

“Casa Fantastica is truly fantastic”
Reviewed 9 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The house exceeded our expectations. It is very open and spacious which allowed our guests to be together or quiet places to be alone. The wildlife viewing from the pool deck is incredible! We saw more from the house than we did in the national park. (Sloths, toucans, macaws, two different species of monkeys).

“Jungle Luxury”
Reviewed 3 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had 17 people staying at the house and it didn't feel crowded. The chef (Marco) was fantastic. Ricky the property manager was very helpful. Take advantage of their offer to secure the rental cars. our party had 4 vehicles and the best deal was obtained by the concierge.

Jacuzzi doesn't get real hot...and the staircase to the downstairs suite could really use a hand rail!

Buy or bring your hard alcohol & wine... it is really expensive there (except for the Costa Rican Rum). Beer wasn't too bad price wise.

Liked least: driveway is long and steep quite a walk to the main street

“There is a reason it's called Casa Fastastica!!!!”

Just returned from a 7 day trip to Costa Rica where my son was married. A group of 16 of us stayed at Casa Fantastica and another 9 stayed at Casa Vista Azul!! Both houses are beautiful!! The staff was better than expected and our all around trip was fabulous!!

Before our arrival, we set up all our tours with the concierge and they all worked out great!! Not a problem with anything.

I had also set up a "welcome party" at Fantastica for the day after our arrival for the 50 people attending the wedding and staying at other houses. It was fabulous. The chefs bar-b-qued for us, we had a bartender and servers and we couldn't have asked for a better party. The staff cleaned up and all we had to do was entertain and enjoy our guests. The house is so big, it wasn't even crowded with 50 people there!!

The rooms were all beautiful!! We had the lower level suite with the open air shower and it was great. I believe it was the quietest room in the house and my husband and I both loved it. My 82 year old parents shared the master bedroom and that was also fabulous!! Not one guest complained about the rooms. One of the ceiling fans went out and was replaced the day it was reported. We asked about the pool being cleaned the afternoon of our party and it was taken care of immediately and there was never an issue of it needing to be cleaned again. Ricky took care of things as soon as we contacted him.

Being it was the last week of July, the temps were hot and it was humid. I will have to say the ocean breezes are better at Casa Fantastica as it is more open and not surrounded by jungle and we found it much cooler and not too hot and humid. Although Vista Azul is quite the house, we found it more humid when we went over there as it is surrounded by the jungle so doesn't get the breezes as much. The younger crowd stayed there and most of them were from the south so it didn't bother them but as a northern girl, I was more comfortable at Fantastica.

I don't think you can go wrong by renting any of the houses thru Escape Villas. They were wonderful to work with and everything went great!!

“This place is Heaven on Earth.”
Reviewed 20 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I traveled to Costa Rica in May for a little over a week with a large group of friends and we all stayed at Casa Fantastica. This place is amazing. It's easily the best Villa I've ever stayed at, and I've been to hundreds of them.
The manager Ricky was a delight, and was extremely helpful with all of our needs. We comfortably fit 17 people in the Villa and enjoyed it so much, we barely left the property to do other activities.
You will definitely get wildlife (mostly monkeys) on the property during their daily route through the jungle, and hearing the howlers at night across the jungle valley is a magical experience.
Presumably the construction will be finished soon so that won't be an issue...it hardly bothered us, just make a rum drink and get in the pool ya dingus.
My only complaint is that the DVD player in the media room is region specific and we couldn't watch many of the movies on hand or any of the ones we brought with us. It's 2014! Just upgrade the media room to an HDMI port and maybe a universal DVD player so people can plug their laptops in and it's good to go.

That being said, I watched Ghostbusters like 50 times and did not regret it.

Viva Casa Fantastica!
