“Pure Paradise - Pura Vida indeed!”
Reviewed 6 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

First time in Costa Rica, stayed with our hosts Silvia and Calin, who were so wonderful to us and made the stay memorable. The wonderful building, the scenic view of the beach, the green lush forest across the street, all was a marvelous get away from the Canadian freeze. We were treated to gourmet meals on the terrace, every day our hosts surprised us with healthy and tasty dishes.
Go there and enjoy! Be happy!

“Start your Costa Rican adventure here!”

Whether travelling with friends ,family or solo Villa El Sueno is a fabulous place to start your Costa Rican adventure. Calin and Silvia are wonderful owners. They are very kind and knowledgeable and will gladly answer any questions you may have about the area. The villa itself is beautiful. Tucked in the tree tops, it offers a spectacular view of the ocean ,mountains and wildlife. Just outside the front gate is a quaint little waking path that, in only minutes, will lead you right to Ocotal beach . Playa Ocotal is a lovely little beach with great swimming and snorkeling. It also has one of my favorite little ocean front beach bars," Father Roosters"( great view ,food, and music.).Economically it is almost impossible to find a place which offers so much for so little. This is my second time staying here and hope to have a family reunion at Villa El Sueno sometime soon. I should also mention that Playa Del Coco and 2 other lovely beaches are just a short taxi ride away. It's also great to be so close to the airport.

“Incredible views, relaxing stay ”
Reviewed 14 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

We were lucky enough to stay on the second floor of the villa and enjoyed a spacious apartment with incredible views ! We woke up every morning to the birds and the howler monkeys and ate breakfast on the patio overlooking the ocean. Calin and his wife were both gracious hosts ... Giving us great travel advice and inviting us for breakfast ! We had a memorable stay !
