Having spent several weeks scouring sites and reviews for vacation rentals in the Quepo-Dominical-Uvita area, I eventually settled on the Villa Exotica at Paradise Breezes, just outside of Dominical, and my family and I were thrilled with the choice, for everything about the Villa Exotica and Paradise Breezes exceeded our most audacious expectations. Equipped with every conceivable amenity, augmented by a welcome basket of fruits, etc., thoughtfully prepared for us by Oscar, our wonderful concierge, the Villa Exotica was beyond breathtaking. Air conditioned throughout, with four bedrooms, each with magnificently comfortable beds, en suite bathrooms, and tv’s, it easily and comfortably accommodated our party of six--my wife and I, our son and his wife, and their two young children—and the completely equipped kitchen enabled us to cook with ease when we were not exploring Dominical’s culinary scene. The Villa Exotica is ensconced in a lush verdant setting, including daily visits by a friendly iguana, and offers a glorious view of the Pacific, especially at sunset. Worthy of special mention are the Jacuzzi and the infinity pool, of which we made such use that the latter was a joyful family gathering point most afternoons.
I would be remiss if I did not extend hearty kudos to Oscar, our concierge. Thoughtful, friendly, and exemplarily professional, he responded to numerous emails prior to our visit, organized an unforgettable tour of Manuel Antonio Parque Nacional, recommended safe local beaches and excellent restaurants (and a special shout-out to Langostina Feliz for an amazing culinary experience), and made all the arrangements for a dinner in the Villa prepared by two consummately gifted chefs, Brandon and Carlos. Indeed, we unanimously agreed that the appetizers, entrées, and desserts prepared and served by the chefs, along with a birthday cake for my son, constituted one of the greatest meals we had ever had. Finally, Paradise Breezes itself is a gated community patrolled at night by the vigilant Donald, so safety was never a concern.
My family joins me in thanking Paradise Breezes and Oscar for making our week at the stunning Villa Exotica truly the vacation of a lifetime! We cannot wait to return!
