The villa was just as beautiful in real life as the pictures. The roads are really bad and that's being kind. Johan are concierge was wonderful he made the trip stress free and was their for all of are needs. I was alittle disappointed the first day we got in to find the pool hadn't been cleaned but one phone call to Johan and that was taken care of. The chef service was like eating at a 5 star restaurant. The sunsets and views of the mountains and ocean were spectacular from the roof top deck (one of are favorite places to be at sunset). We did have the pleasure of feeling an earthquake that took place in Guatemale it was just alittle rubble. The electric went out one day but it was early in the day so it didn't stop us from going to the beach. The beach was fabulous it was in Nosara and was popular with the surfers , the waves were huge. We had so much fun. We went off one day really not knowing where we would end up to find our selfs in monkey heaven we have some great pictures.
