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 :-) "

Breathtaking Property

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about this lovely property. We spent two weeks here with our two teenage children and both sets of grandparents on Spring Break. The Villa is beautiful and the grounds breathtaking. The pictures do not do this property justice. Valerie was a pleasure to deal with and the concierge, Petra, was absolutely wonderful. She took care of everything from arranging to have us picked up and dropped off at the airport to booking our rental cars (a must!). She booked all of our excursions and was there at our beck and call whenever we needed her. Laura and Roger took very good care of us as well. We had a lovely goodbye dinner cooked by Sybil (don’t wait for the last night to do this!). I wish we had done more dinners like this. Was most definitely worth it. I hope to return someday and highly recommend this property. You won’t be disappointed.

Simply the Best..

  • 5 of 5

This trip met all of our expectations for myself and the rest of the guests. The accommodations and daily staff, from the house keepers and pool service to the ever present but very much in the background, Petra was everything I had hoped for and more. Petra consistently provided results to anything we wanted. Restaurants including reservations, zip lining, sailing and deep sea fishing. The house itself is fully equipped, each bedroom having its own bathroom, the main living area is outdoors but well covered. We were able to hook up our laptop to the TV and watch the Minnesota Wild 2 playoff games while we were there. I would recommend this place to anyone, you will not be disappointed.

A slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first trip to Costa Rica. As customary on our family trips we got lost on the way... from Liberia Airport to Villa Diosa del mar. Petra, the patient, warm and inviting concierge, drove a half hour to meet us to guide us to the property. GPS is a must, particularly when traveling unmarked dirt roads! Lesson learned! We arrived in the dark so we couldn't see or appreciate the full scope of the property. We woke up to a slice of heaven. It's hard to put into the words the beauty of this gem of a home and surrounding land. The attention to architectural detail, landscaping, lighting, infinity pool, furniture and art were phenomenal. Nothing was left undone. Beautiful to look at and ultra-functional for our family of eight including seven adults and a 15-year old. The property offers ample space for everyone to find their spot, and the individual casita-type rooms provide privacy and comfort. The bedrooms, all with king-size beds are air-conditioned providing a respite from the humidity and "interesting" bugs. My only suggestion to the homeowners would be to air condition the kitchen area, which would make evening dinners more comfortable and allow family members to linger longer versus rushing off to the cool comfort of the bedrooms. Petra was a godsend! She appeared within minutes whenever we called her with questions or for recommendations regarding activities or dinner reservations. She was accommodating and appropriate. Btw, upon arrival the fridge and kitchen were stocked with the grocery list we had provided her via email. She was a pleasure to communicate with prior to our trip and lovely to deal with in person. The same goes for the rest of her team including the affable housekeeper, Lara, who went out of her way to take good care of us including cooking delicious breakfasts and dinner. Big tears from me when it was time to say goodbye to heaven on earth. No doubt we will return to Villa Diosa del mar again someday. Until then... thank you for showing us the pure life! Pura vida!!

Amazing Place!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to Costa Rica. Our previous trip was not one of our favorites as the accommodations were not what we were told they would be.

Thankfully our fears were quickly alleviated when we walked into the front door of this property. We were immediately captivated and remained so until the moment we had to leave.

The home has everything anyone could ask for and is exactly as presented. The owner and the staff were there for whatever we needed and the Concierge Petra was on property in seconds whenever we needed her. I could not ask for a better response from anyone.

The layout of the property is great for larger parties as you can choose to be together in any of the common areas or if you want some privacy it is only steps away. The house is obviously very well maintained and updated as is the property around it. You will not find a better sunset anywhere!!!

I would consider myself extremely picky when it comes to accommodations and I would rate this as one of the best I have ever had the pleasure to enjoy. I am not a fan of large resorts but I do like all of the amenities they offer (minus the people) .

I highly recommend this property (Just not when we want to be there! :)

An amazing time!

  • 5 of 5

This villa is absolutely to die for. The concierge (Claire) was a sweetheart and very helpful, recommending the best activities with people who she knows personally and trusts, making our experience comfortable and enjoyable! We woke up to monkeys right above our room, iguanas basking in the sun, and colorful birds chirping by our window and above the infinity pool. I was speechless and felt as though the best of costa rica was right in my back yard. The beach behind the villa had clear blue water and the view was phenomenal in the morning and in the evening. I booked with luxury retreats, who's team was very hospitable during their short visits every morning to clean the pool, cook, and tidy up the house. Although speaking spanish is ideal, everyone I encountered spoke english and was very kind. Out of all the things I was grateful for, frm the view, to the hospitality, the food, and fun activities, the directions I was given before my arrival to Costa Rica was SO HELPFUL when we drove our rental car from the airport to the villa.. I didn't even get lost on the dirt roads in this foreign tropical country and the GPS nor wifi didn't even work! It was amazing how thorough my concierge was with her directions with every recommended spot to visit. I recommend this home for big families, or couples, groups of friends, whether you want to explore the best of costa rica or stay on the property all day-- its like your own resort. Love!

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
