The pictures that we saw before we booked our trip were amazing but honestly............they don't even do this Villa justice. We entered through the gates and were driven up the mountain until we came to a very steep driveway. Driving up the driveway we were all so excited to finally see where we were staying. When we walked through the front door we were all blown away. The view was unreal. The pool, the mountains, the ocean, the house..........unbelievable!!! Every morning I enjoyed hooking up my iphone to play my music over the speakers. The entire house and outside were wired for music. I never got tired of sitting outside drinking coffee and listening to music. This was definitely one of the most beautiful places that we have ever stayed.

Go All The Way Up!

  • 5 of 5

Describing the incredible beauty and luxurious accommodations we experienced during our recent trip to Villa Rocmar is difficult, but we will try. This amazing Costa Rican retreat can easily be the GOAT - Greatest Of All Time. We rented a mid-sized SUV from Adobe & that process was smooth & painless – Luis was awesome during booking & the onsite staff was polite, fast, & helpful. The pictures online are breathtaking but don't begin to capture the stunning views. The property mgmt team - Linda & Cynthia went the extra mile to ensure that we had the best vacation. They gave us a thorough tour & answered all of our questions. The villa is located in a gated community and we felt well protected. From the moment you walk thru the front door and are immersed with that sensational view, you know you are someplace magical. We were continually impressed by every well thought out detail. The infinity pool was one of our favorite features. We spent hours taking in the views and the ping pong table was a big hit with the fellas. If you like to cook like we do, the kitchen is stocked with every kind of utensil you need to prepare delicious meals for yourself and guests. The caretakers Marlon & Carmen was very respectful, attentive, & overall wonderful. When needed for additional questions, they were only a knock on the door/or a phone call away. Waking up to that ocean view every morning was such a treat. We started and ended nearly every day of our vacation with a swim. Used the fabulous outdoor kitchen & grill. Mimosas and Patron was the daily drinks of choice to relax and unwind. Be mindful that it gets dark early here, around 5:30-6:00pm. When it comes to water activities (such as jet skis), we highly recommend renting from the RIU hotel in Guanacaste. The extra money is worth it, b/c it includes a rescue staff in case of an emergency. Brian on Coco beach assisted with scheduling our fantastic Sunset Cruise where we island-hopped, watched others snorkel, viewed a cave, and even had an unexpected whale & dolphins sighting. Definitely try to make time to do this, it was the highlight of our trip. Following that, our husbands had an exciting 3 hour ATV tour while the ladies enjoyed a divine massage on the beach. The four of us felt extremely lucky to have gotten to vacation here - inspiring a much needed segway to reconnect to marital bliss. The wives on this trip, concluded and insist that the Husbands this vacation created can feel free to stick around forever.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your very kind words! We think it's a spectacular place as well and it means a great deal to have wonderful people like yourselves who think so too. Costa Rica has so much to offer every type of adventurer as well with the best in hospitality to go along with it. On behalf of the owners of Villa RocMar we appreciate your lovely review and hope that you will come back and enjoy our Villa once again. Kindest Regards, Marc and Donna, Roch and Johanne

Perfect home away from home in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We came here with 3 other families and everyone came away so impressed and to be honest, NOBODY wanted to leave and go home. I was depressed on my last day here. As you drive up the windy road to this beautiful country you get to a house on a hill with a view that is pure paradise! Our family was the first to arrive so we got to soak in all the beauty first. They even put up a Xmas tree! We met up with Vivian, who I believe is the property manager and she was a joy to work with. She was totally professional and helpful as she made every attempt to give us a lot of information about where to go, car rentals, etc. She was even willing to meet us up at the big supermarket to escort us to the house. First day we were there, she brought us a welcome cake and tamales (delicious!) on the second day. It was such a great gesture that made us feel welcome and special! Now back to the view! I was literally gasping inside and tried to keep my composure when I saw the view of the Infiniti pool and the ocean. Just totally breath taking. Each room had either a balcony or direct view of the pool and ocean. Pictures are spot on and it's even better in person!! Now the house itself is huge and luxurious. The decorations are tasteful and they really know what they are doing. The details in the ceilings with gold brick makes the house look like something from lifestyles of the rich and famous. Each bedroom had a key and safe and was really spacious and perfect! I've stayed in quite a few luxurious resorts/hotels and this by far is the best place I've seen.

So the house itself is spectacular but then you meet the on-site caretakers, Carmen and her husband Marlon who are a totally delight. They were friendly and never made us feel uncomfortable. I would totally recommend asking them to cook the local foods for you because every meal was amazing! I really enjoyed their company as well as brushing up on my Spanish. Having Carmen there to go shopping and cook for us was really convenient with a large group because we didn't have to go out and waste time at the supermarket or restaurant. It's like having your own personal cook and restaurant in the comfort of your home.

Recommend going to a waterfall, just ask Carmen as well as the volcano nearby. Overall we had a blast and enjoyed every second of the house, the beautiful people, and sites that the country had to offer.

A group of 3 families (12 total) comfortably stayed at Villa RocMar for a recent week in January 2015. The house was beyond expectation. After our many excursions in Costa Rica, the best part of the day was returning to this wonderful home. The entire staff, from the rental agent to the on-site staff, was top notch, always there to help in any way possible.

The view, and sunsets, from the pool deck are absolutely amazing, and worth every penny of the rental fee. On top of that, everything in the house is top notch, with a whole-house sound system easily pared with your own IPhone playlist, to the massive game room with pool and poker tables.

I can easily say Rocmar Villa was the most impressive vacation residence we've ever had the pleasure of visiting.
