Guestbook comments from the manager

Villa Tranquila (translated as Peaceful or Tranquil Estate) lives up to its name. Having just spent 7 days & 7 nights at this 13,000 square foot Villa, I can truly say that we found paradise!



Situated about 3 minutes from the ocean and extremely close to other amenities, here is how we spent a typical day. In the mornings, I played 18 holes of golf at the top-tier golf course – Hacienda Pinilla – on which the Villa is located on the 18th green. My wife slept in until the soft rays of the sun pierced the sheers and either the birds or the wind in the palm trees sang her a morning song. We worked out at the gym (within walking distance) containing cardio machines, free weights and yoga mats.



As soon as we could gather our gear, we headed to the beaches. Our favorite beach was Playa Langosta, a private beach just 3 minutes from the villa where the ocean scenery, turquoise waves and luscious vegetation are simply breath-taking. The beach has wood shade huts and enough lounge chairs for every member of the house party. There are a number of other beaches within a 10 minute drive, including a multi-million dollar beach club for those staying within the Hacienda Pinilla campus.



We took in a massage, shopped at the tourists stores in Tamarindo, or stayed at the Villa proper under the huge back porch balcony or around the huge beautiful pool.



Prior to our arrival, the staff provided a list of activities, with details on location, time commitment and pricing. Activities included: horseback riding, zip-lines, Jet Ski & ATV rental, snorkeling, surfing lessons, tennis, golf, bird watching, site-seeing to volcanoes, jungle slides, mountain biking, hiking and our favorite pastime – dining out.

Reviewer Comments:

Our stay at Villa Tranquila was amazing! Property Managers Eugene and Sary were also amazing! They went out of their way to make sure our stay was great. We had a family wedding and they helped navigate our event including flowers, cake, food suggestions and more. The food that was prepared for us was delicious. Cooks made local Costa Rican cuisine. All of our guests raved about the food. The cost of food was more affordable than expected. The house accommodated our 23 guests easily and we had room for more. It was at a good location, access to a great beach, golf course, mountain biking and lots more. We took a fishing charter and our cooks prepared the fish we caught. We plan to come again.

We could not ask for a better place to stay. The help we had from Eugene and his wife the property manager was fantastic which made everything much easier for us. Kimberly the maid and cook made our stay so comfortable and easy having breakfast and dinners made for us each day. This allowed us to enjoy our days without worry as to what we were going to cook.

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Tranquila. 12 family and friends traveled together. The owner’s Gene and Sary made us feel welcomed immediately. They saw to our every need. All our activities were booked for us and a shuttle was provided to get us to and from our chosen adventures. All 12 members said they would return to this same home.

Reviewer Comments:

We held our family reunion at Villa Tranquila for 10 days in February 2018. There were 12 attendees (9 adults, 3 children) and the venue was exceptional in every aspect. The Hacienda Pinilla location was perfect for us; close enough to Tamarindo and far enough from Tamarindo. In fact, there was so much to do at the villa and nearby beaches, we seldom ventured from Hacienda Pinilla. The overall level of service provided by Eugene and Sary was unparalleled and very much appreciated. The cooking staff was skilled and accommodating. Everything was superb! If you’re looking for a fantastic vacation in a beautiful setting, look no further! Highly recommended.

Reviewer Comments:

From the initial booking to our eventual arrival, we had the support of knowledgeable and helpful staff every step of the way. The house is a wonderful blend of private space and large areas to hang out as a large group. The house is beautiful as the pictures show and there were bikes to use to get around the local area. The beach club is wonderful as is just staying at the villa around the pool or reading in the shade.
