Bella Vista Azul

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at Bella Vista Azul. The house was beautiful and accomadated our large family very nicely. The kitchen was well equipt will everything you could thing of to prepare and serve our food. The beds were incredibly comfortable. Our manager, Melissa was very helpful whenever we needed anything. The housekeeper Claudia did a fabulous job of keeping up with a zoo of a family! If I were to ever go back to Costa Rica, I would not hesitate to stay in this house again. The whole experience was absolutely unforgetable!

As pictured, well equipped, great location

  • 4 of 5

The property was very accommodating to our family of 10 adults, 3 children. We did find that it wasn't baby/toddler friendly & we had to move a lot of fragile items out of the way. They did have a playpen for our 1yr old to keep him safe & sleep in. The microwave didn't work & we had to use the Studios microwave that we also rented. The location is great & beach was walking distance & pretty private for this time of year. The villa provides beach/pool towels & sand toys, which is a plus for us! It didn't have floats for the baby or toddlers though.

Claudia, the cleaning woman did a great job keeping up with our family and provided childcare to our 3 children. I did feel Sisinio, the property manager, didn't do too well in customer service. There was an instance where he didn't communicate to Claudia that we didn't need her friends services and she was upset. There was also another instance where he didn't communicate to us that the childcare provider wasn't available but luckily for us Claudia offered her services and saved the day. Besides the first day of him greeting us he didn't call or come in to check in on us.

Overall, as other reviews state, it's a very nice luxurious villa & I will recommend it to family and friends and we do hope to return again!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our group of seven totally enjoyed our stay at this villa. Very commodious. Beds were excellent. Claudia attended daily except for Sunday to tidy up which was a great treat,. Kitchen was very well equipped. Sisinio, the manager was very helpful and arranged rides from the airport with a company that turned into our tour friends for the two weeks. The driveway does require a higher set vehicle but we rented a large electric golf cart and managed just fine. Ocotal beach is a five minute walk and beautiful. I highly recommend this villa.

Nice stay

  • 4 of 5

We spent 4 days with two families. The house is really nice and well kept. Within walking distance to the beach although not exactly close (some 250 mts.). Has a view of the ocean in the distance. Living/dining room and terrace with jacuzzi are particularly nice. Bedrooms are very comfortable. Some issues to consider: the driveway is too steep, making it inaccesible for vehicles that are not tall because of the angle at the top end. Minor inconveniences were that the microwave and dishwasher were out of order (we had to use the microwave from the adjoining apartment, which we had also rented). The beach is great for swimming and probably one of the safest in Guanacaste, as it has only very small waves and we saw no evidence at all of rip currents. Plenty of shadow in the beach, which is a major plus. We recommend it.

It's going to be hard to beat!

  • 5 of 5

This place was nothing less than amazing. We had 3 couples and 2 single girls - we had a blast. Enough room for all. We had Sisinio help us with travel from airport to home. Plus he went with us on our trip -- horseback riding, zip lining, spa, etc. He is great for any questions. We loved everything about our week. Note to all - buy as much alcohol in the duty free store - otherwise, it's like buying booze in the US. Also, if staying in Ocotal, rent a golf cart for $35 a day - fun and worth the money.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our four kids and a friend's family who also has four kids. It was perfect! The house was immaculate. The beds were super comfy...and I'm picky. The kitchen was stocked better than any kitchen in a rental we've ever stayed in. The theme of the house was super fun--all about the ocean and ocean life, even down to the cups and plates we used. Super kid friendly. Our families had an incredible time here and would come again in a second. Definitely worth every penny.
