My family and I just spent 9 fabulous nights in Paradise Breezes, we rented Villa Cristal and immediately fell in love with it's charm and high end feel. We were greeted by the personal concierge Oscar who made sure everything ran smoothly, just like we planned prior to our arrival. The management company does a great job of outlining all the possible activities, coordinating shuttle service and even having rental cars ready at the villa upon arrival. All these details were key in making sure our stay was as pleasant as could be. They even provided us with a welcome basket full of fruit and delicious Costa Rican coffee! The rooms were all very well appointed and the kitchen fully stocked, we love cooking so made many of our meals right at home. The supermarket in town is only a 5 minute drive and is very well stocked. Our boys 6 and 8 when not out exploring the many activities coordinated by Oscar (kayaking, zip lining, waterfall hikes, and surfing) spent most of their time in the pool. It was great being able to stay in a place where you had so much privacy and felt at home. Whenever we did need anything addressed in the house Oscar was quick to reply on the personal phone provided for their guests and handled immediately. We truly felt like 9 days were not enough to enjoy what Dominical had to offer and we hope to return very soon.

Our family stayed at Buena Vista and we had the most amazing time. The house was absolutely beautiful and everyone that we encountered was friendly and so very helpful. Oscar went above and beyond in every situation and we were so appreciative of all of the help he provided.

Paradise Breezes! What a place!! This is a beautiful well maintained property where we spent ten wonderful days with our family of four adults and two teenagers during Spring Break. We stayed in the luxurious Villa Exotica, a private large four bed room luxury villa with the most comfortable beds.

Villa Exotica has a high end well equipped kitchen which we used to cook several dinners in, and many of our breakfast meals. There is also a large gas grill on the pool patio where we grilled and relaxed by the infinity pool and hot tub. Groceries are a short trip down the road in Domical just outside the beach town center. There are many restaurants in the area to eat out, and we enjoyed dinner at Phat Noodle (a very neat outdoor place with a converted colorful RV as the kitchen), coffee and interesting delicious food choices at Café Mono Congo, milkshakes and cinnamon buns at Café Delicias, and the best take out pizza from Rio Lindo Hotel Pool Bar, all in Dominical.

During our stay we rented surf boards, and surfed every day at multiple beach locations depending on the wave heights. Most of the beaches are tree lined, and we purchased a hammock from a local vendor which mom spent the week relaxing in. A short drive from our villa we visited Nauyaca Waterfall, which was an amazing experience including the five mile hike from where we parked, and swimming in the natural pool at the bottom of falls. During our hike to the falls we saw several monkeys, and two large red macaw parrots. We original planned to do the zip line and ATV tours, but our experience at the beaches and relaxing by the Infinity pool and hot tub, made it hard to do anything else.

The property is well landscaped, and right at our villa we saw several toucans, many bird species, and a sloth and
her baby. Oscar (the property manager and our concierge during our stay) and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful, and you can tell from the day you meet them they take pride in what they do. Oscar even helped plan our trip communicating with us several times well before our arrival.

I would highly recommend this luxurious villa community to anyone planning to visit the beautiful Central Pacific region of Costa Rica, wanting to experience the Pura Vida life style. While there is much to do in the area, our time was spent mainly surfing, hanging at the beaches, and relaxing at the villa since it was so comfortable and peaceful.

Pura Vida!!

The house, the view, the pool, the location ... They are all perfect. It is a great place to relax, sit back and enjoy nature. The pool is a wonderful addition, especially when it is hot and humid, which was while we were there. The location is perfect. There is a view from every place in the house and the restaurants in the area are quite good: Thai, Mexican, and the BEST chicken wings I have ever had (better than in Buffalo NY!). I recommend staying here and coming back as often as possible.

Our family of 4 stayed at villa Exotica for 1 week. The villa was beautiful, very spacious and clean with an awesome view of the surrounding lush landscape and Pacific Ocean. Oscar, our concierge, was excellent and took care of our every need. He really made us feel welcome and made sure we enjoyed every minute. A few things needed minor attention in the house and he took care of it immediately and was on call well into the evening. The surrounding area and beaches were beautiful with a remote feel and natural beauty. We would definitely recommend this place and hope to be back!!!
