Review Title : "THE BEST PLACE TO STAY!!!!"



"We just returned from a week at Diosa del Mar and it was AMAZING!!!! The house was wonderful… the pictures on the website give you a good impression of what to expect, but when we arrived it was even better then we could have imagined, absolutely beautiful!!!! Eve and Vincent were wonderful! Vincent is a terrific cook, thank you for dinner! He helped us set up surfing and spa trips and I really enjoyed my time speaking with Eve. Since I was alone during the day (my husband and his friends were surfing) it was nice that she would stop by to check in on me :-) This made me feel safe. Also, I cannot forget about the housekeeper... she worked so hard at keeping the home clean... she was wonderful and a very hard worker!



We had the best time and hope to return again. Thank you… thank you… thank you… for an amazing vacation we will never forget. This is truly a little piece of paradise :-) "

Villa Diosa del Mar-"A piece of Heaven" in Playa Junquillal!

  • 5 of 5

My dream to find the perfect getaway in Guanacaste, Costa Rica began almost 6months before I finally arrived on January 4, 2015. The coordination of the details and finalizing plans for myself and some special friends took months, but the owner guided me through the process from the beginning to end, expertly and efficiently. I was searching for a uniquely beautiful location and accommodations, privacy, nature, quality amenities, access to available comforts and adventures, and an overall personal experience with Costa Rica. I found all of this and more from the moment I arrived. Patty, the villa concierge, took care of every need and detail with amazing grace and efficiency. Upon arriving, I was greeted with smiles by Patty and the house-keeper Yurlani, and the doors opened to spectacular beauty on all levels. The overall architectural design details and furnishings for the communal spaces and casitas are so special and blend in beautifully with the perfect backdrop of the ocean, cliffs, manicured lawn, sparkling pool, and magnificent palms. All perfectly cared for by William, the landscaper. The various amenities offered of personal cooks, massages, grocery shopping, adventure planning or instruction, local restaurant recommendations, rental cars, etc. are all handled expertly by Patty and Niko as well as dealing with any questions or special needs and requests. Turning us onto the "hatch and release" of the baby leatherback and black turtles down the beach was a particular highlight. The beach is only a few minutes down the private path and the ocean and daily sunsets were breathtaking. Wildlife sightings and sounds were a common occurrence and added to the relaxing atmosphere. The weather was perfect and the summer winds prevented the heat from ever getting too oppressive. Whether we were simply relaxing by the pool, in the hammocks, or seeking adventures, I felt like I was experiencing a little piece of heaven. Thank you for sharing your home and to all who helped make this vacation so unforgettable. I hope to return very soon. Jeanine M., NYC 2015

Unforgettable Vacation

  • 5 of 5

December 2014

We just spent an unforgettable vacation with family and friends at Villa Diosa Del Mar and Oceania. From the moment we arrived Patty, the villa concierge, greeted us with open arms and a beautiful smile. She opened the front door to show us an ocean view we will not forget. Beautifully maintained tropically lush grounds and gardened pathways joining the different dwellings, hammocks and seating amongst palm trees to capture ocean views and sunsets, beach path to wading pools full of life at low tide, and snorkeling beach steps away with tropical fish. Expansive green yard space for sunset yoga(thank you, Patty for organizing, Dianna and Rosalia for teaching us), football or soccer games, or just lounging. The pools were refreshing and clean(thank you, William), the house and rooms always tidied(thank you, Yorleni & Odixi), with clean pool and beach towels always.

Patty is located right next door, and likely needed a holiday after her attentiveness to our every need and request. Patty organized groceries upon our arrival, a cook, sunset yogas, outstanding golf at Hacienda Pinilla, zip line and horseback riding at Pura Aventura, surfing with Nicholas at Longosta Beach, Tamarindo, a wonderful dining experience at Villa Deveena, and many other things. We also ventured out for meals on our own at restaurants---Amigos, Cafe Playa Negra, and especially Villa Deveena are musts. Renting cars is essential, a GPS is a good idea too.

Every area within the villas has beautiful artwork and lighting, unique furnishings, woodwork and architectural details throughout. The attention to detail is endless. Wildlife and nature abounds---palm trees, orchids, flowers, iguanas on the roof, birds, monkeys traversing overhead, butterflies and other interesting insects(it is a rainforest!).

Valerie and Patrick, you have an amazing property and have found priceless staff in Patty, Yorleni, Odix and William. Thank you for sharing your beautiful Villa Diosa del Mar and Oceania with us. We hope to return one day, Pura Vida.

Villa Diosa Del Mar, Playa Junquillal

  • 5 of 5

I have never before written an online review of anything. My wife and two of our grown children and their spouses spent two glorious weeks at Villa Diosa Del Mar in January 2014. This beautiful oceanfront villa exceeded all our expectations. The ocean view and access is spectacular. The accommodations are comfortable and tastefully appointed. Our concierge, cook, housekeeper and gardener could not have been more friendly, hospitable and helpful. We were so content we rarely left the villa and spent most of our time going from the pool to the hammocks overlooking the ocean to the surf. Many thanks to our wonderful caretakers and the owners for sharing their little piece of paradise.

Did not want to leave this place!

  • 5 of 5

Our Experience at Villa Diosa del Mar was fantastic. Everything was first class. We had a group of 3 couples and it was nice because everyone had their own private bed and bath. Fabrice, the concierge was wonderful! He arranged everything all of our activities for us, and it made everything so simple! The house and view were breathtaking, and having you own private pool is so nice! Also, the beaches were beautiful and very secluded, so you have them all to yourselves! We went snorkeling and laid on the sand all day. The house is great for large groups, and the area is safe and has a lot of good restaurants within driving distance. A fantastic stay! I would go back in a heartbeat.

Perfection in Every Single Way!

  • 5 of 5

Diosa del Mar surpassed all our expectations! From the minute the gate opened we knew we were in paradise. The lush gardens that adorned this beautifully designed and decorated villa along with the ocean views was simply breathtaking...Truly! The infinity pools was a favorite for our 3 kids and a great way to end each day after enjoying a well-planned Costa Rican adventure that Fabrice, the concierge, was kind enough to arrange for us. Playa Junquillal and the quaint, surrounding areas were just what we needed to get a taste of the Costa Rican culture. Thanks to Fabrice and Patie's knowledge of the area, we were able to zipline the canopy, take surfing lessons, visit area beaches & Rincon de la Vieja & Palo Verde National Parks without traveling a great distance. I also recommend utilizing the services of Pashal & Camille, french chef's that provided delectable meals! How wonderful it was to wake in the morning to the sound of the ocean and to the smell of coffee brewing. Honestly, do not pass up an opportunity to enjoy the luxuries that this villa can offer to a family/families or a great couples retreat!
