Our group of 8 stayed for a week in August (rainy season) and had a wonderful stay at Villa Los Aires. We planned to use the van that was advertised with the property but ended up having to rent vehicles in San Jose, which was a complication but ended up working out for the best. I recommend paying attention to flight arrival times & sunset times and either allowing time to drive the 3.5 hours in daylight or staying your first night in San Jose. The drive from San Jose Airport was easy - nice roads, well marked, etc (we used the coastal toll road) but the last 30 minutes (from Dominical to the Villa) is steep with tight switchbacks and not a road I'd be excited to drive after dark (especially in the rain). The Villa was as pictured and described on the site - beautiful property, awesome waterfalls, big bedrooms with mini split air conditioners, which were a welcome relief from the heat & humidity, and every bedroom has its own bathroom. We had some big storms during our stay and lots of lightening, but no problems with the power whatsoever. Pablo (our host) was fantastic - guiding us to the waterfalls, spotting animals and pointing out interesting mushrooms and plants (we saw cusinga birds, a sloth, frogs, toucans, a coati & its baby and lots of cool lizards and bugs around the Villa) and he prepared a great complimentary breakfast for us every morning. The hot tub wasn't working quite right - Pablo said he needed an hours notice to get it warmed up, but it still wasn't hot a couple hours later. The daily maid service was a nice perk, as was the theater room (we thought "Romancing the Stone" would make a great addition to their library - Costa Rica reminded us of that movie). Loved everything about this trip - Pura Vida!
