WE stayed at Costa-Villa for a week over Thanksgiving and it was so nice. The condo is very comfortable with all those little extras that make it feel like you are visiting someone's home.. The community pool is right up the steps and it is a great place to swim and cool off. Cross the street and walk to the end of the road and the beach stretches for miles. Better yet, much like the Del Pacifico pool, it had hardly anyone there. It felt like we had both a private pool for swimming and a private beach as well. We noted the strong surf and the warning signs of undertows on the beach, so we left the waves for those wanting to surf. There are a few hotels down at the beach that are convenient to stop in for either a meal or just a refreshing drink.
Overall, we loved this villa and plan to return on our next visit to Costa Rica which can't come soon enough. I would definitely recommend this condo to friends and anyone with a party up to six.
