average rating of 4.0 based on 1 reviews

Lovely villa, lovely hosts awsome beach just our style

  • 4 of 5

The positive reviews on Tripadvisor helped seal the deal for our stay at Villa Vista Mar which is perfectly named. Offers an enticing view of Ocotal and the Golf of Papagayo. Ed & Lori live on premises and are generous, helpful & gracious hosts.

Our family of 4 had apt 3 and we were cozy and comfortable. The apartment was exceptionally clean with no bugs. (Which is impressive in Costa Rica.)

It would be a great spot for a Romantic get away.

The outdoor seating areas ie. kitchen, grill &pool offered opportunities for relaxing and /or socializing with other guests. Many if the guests at VVM have returned for many years.

Ed is quick witted, has a wealth of information on the area and is the consument host, respectful of privacy without being intrusive.

Playa Ocotal is a great beach for families. Great snorkeling and tide pools right off the beach only a 10 minute walk away. The snorkeling was better right off shore than with the local tour we took. We saw 100's of fish!! Puffers, needlefish, clown fish etc.

We only travel with one carry on each so the laundry area was helpful.

We regret being unable to stay longer this time but, hope to return next year too stay longer!!

We tend to do much of our own cooking and can be kitchen snobs so our one feedback suggestion would be more silverware.

There excellent selection of books. 2 cabinets full!

If you want to try tico spool fishing the beach is perfect. We were there on a Sunday and here were 20 to 30 fisherman lined up shoulder to shoulder. It was really neat to see.

Lots of restaurants within a 15 min drive.

Lots of Supers nearby which we tend to favor for shopping while in CR.

Playa Coco is a 10 minute drive.

Stayed November 2014, fingers cross for a return visit in the next year.
