We stayed at Villa Esperanza at the end of May this year with 3 couples and this property was PERFECT! It has 3 amazing master suites all with their own bathrooms and each had an incredible view of the ocean. We couldn't not have found a more perfect place to stay where we didn't have to worry about someone missing out on the good room with a view. The house layout was great. Plenty of open space and places for people to relax and have their privacy if desired. We all enjoyed the pool and loved eating our meals on the balcony where we could enjoy the sunsets and ocean views.
Working with the house manager made the trip much easier to plan. She was very easy to work with and set us up with private transport from the airport, car rental, private chef, and other activities. It was awesome having someone there to help us get everything planned without worry of being ripped off or having a bad service.
While at the house some of us had massages set up by the house manager. The therapist came right to the house and the service was some of the best ever! We even set up to have them come back a second day on our stay. We also had the private chef come in and prepare meals for us, this is a MUST! The chefs are the BEST! We could not say enough about them. We had some picky eaters and they were more than willing to work around our needs and be more than accommodating. We added extra meals on by the chef as well because of how great it was!
I would highly recommend Villa Esperanza to anyone looking. It is an awesome retreat that is a perfect getaway for family or friends. We would go there again in a heart beat! The house is one of a kind and you couldn't ask for more with the service! Best vacation I could have asked for!
Perfect for family of 6 who love surf and enjoy the simple life....and to be pampered with amazing accommodations. Best value by far in Central America for what we wanted (surf, beach front, pool, off the beaten path, no hotels).
We recently returned from a week at Villa Esperanza in Playa Negra, and I would highly recommend the home. We were a family of 8 including grandparents, parents, recent college grads, and young kids. We wanted a home which we could use as a base, enjoy, and then venture out for adventures. The home was great for our purposes. The house was perfectly set up with the right living space and bedrooms, a wonderful pool with breathtaking view, and the beach just down a small path.
Playa Negra had a few nice restaurants including the excellent Villa Deveena, Lola's on Playa Avellanas, and the beach town of Tamarindo (which was a bit too commercial for us). We also hired a chef to come in and cook two dinners. We made a couple of outings to Rincon de la Vieja and a river cruise which were a bit of a hike from the home and would have been nice to be a bit closer but we managed.
The property manager Mary was extremely helpful in all aspects, from the planning to the actual stay. The rental process went smoothly, and she answered many questions and handled many requests. We were very appreciative to have her to work with.
The listing description was accurate, the property was clean and maintained, and overall it was a great experience.
