The villa is fantastic and took everyone's breath away upon arrival. The villa is as advertised and sits in such a wonderful location that you feel as though your group is the only one in Costa Rica. The villa is extremely secure, we had to pass through 3 manned security gates which left the entire group feeling relaxed. The house staff is amazing, all meals where delicious and there willingness to cover small details and odd request where fantastic. We had a group of 6 couples and never felt cramped. The staff at Luxury Retreats set up all of our transportation and daily activities and I am very pleased to say that all went off without a hitch. In short for our group there are not enough words to explain the sheer delight we had while staying at Villa Avalon and visiting the nearby area. Thank you the the Villa Avalon staff and Luxury Retreats staff for making this a truly memorable trip of a lifetime.
