This villa, a beautiful home with a gorgeous pool and hot tub, lushly landscaped grounds, gurgling entry way ponds and a fantastic staff could not have been a better choice for our Christmas vacation.
The owner (Raul) is fantastic to work with. He and his staff provided everything we needed from details regarding arrival, resort activities, transportation, restaurants, golf, scuba, snorkeling & fishing information (a boat and staff captain are available for hire) to wonderful meals and even freshly cut coconut to sample!
The grounds are magnificent and the house is an oasis... for relaxation in the pool, reading in the hammocks, drinks on the veranda, or simply enjoying the best that this wonderful resort has to offer. The layout is perfect, with sleeping rooms on one side and living space on the other, all providing outdoor access and full views to the pool and courtyard. The decor and amenities are also perfect with unique and colorful artwork punctuating a serene color scheme.
Using the golf cart, you are centrally located and a short drive to all resort attractions. The villa is minutes from the beach and excellent dinning at the Beach Club Le Cirque (recommended). You are also minutes from the tennis center, hotel pool, spa and restaurants and an easy drive to the marina for more dining options, groceries and anything else needed.
We had great meals by Yolanda, some fun hotel pool bar competitions, rejuvenating spa treatments and used the bicycles to explore the resort and take in some breathtaking views. We enjoyed returning to Altos for a special meal and unforgettable Christmas eve on the church square. We loved playing golf at the Links and Teeth of the Dog, playing tennis at the tennis center and tooling around on the golf cart.
At the risk of spoiling the availability of options for a definite future stay... our experience renting this villa left nothing to be desired. It was perfect. Even the weather. Paradise indeed.
