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.

Took my family on vacation to Costa Rica and stayed at this house. It was the best vacation we have had as a family and we have been to many places. The accommodations were excellent. The property manager was very helpful and each day gave us ideas of places to go and sights and tours to take. He also help arrange several of the tours for us. Some of them come and pick you up right at the house. The house is fully loaded with everything you would want. Smart TV's in all the suites, 2 common areas for gathering as a family and then the pool area. The house backs up to the 18th hole of the golf course and is very quiet. We will definitely stay here again and I would HIGHLY recommend staying here. This is my 2nd time staying at the house. I stayed here on a business trip before and that's why I wanted my family to experience this.

Amazing Experience

  • 5 of 5

The greatest comment resides in our eagerness to book again for another excursion in Costa Rica. We had an amazing time. Five stars for the accommodations and five stars for the level of service.

My wife planned her brother’s destination wedding in Costa Rica and this house was the venue. As great as an ocean/beach wedding would be, the house was better as the backdrop and also served us well for the entire week. Roughly twenty people stayed there comfortably with guests arriving and leaving at different times. The house has private suites within and was very roomy. The place was clean and well maintained. It was located minutes from the beach that is tucked away from all the public crowds as found in Tamarindo. The house is also closely situation to the JW Marriott which provides some excellent dining options for eating out. Wifi was reliable and located in every room and never had a problem connecting. It was perfect even down to the small family of harmless iguanas that lived in the landscaped portion of the property.

As great as the accommodations were, something needs to be said for the personal service that Eugene and Mariela provided. Hosting a wedding, we had several unique requests that we required assistance with. The wedding, the entire week and the lack of issues are a credit to their assistance. The wedding and the days leading up and afterwards were all made possible because of their hard efforts to accommodate us and our special needs. Eugene and Mariela went above and beyond and were completely professional and pleasant to work with. We cannot thank them enough. We now look forward to scheduling the next family and friends trip to Costa Rica without any hesitation on where we plan to stay.

Reviewer Comments:

This place exceeded expectations. We were skeptical being "off" the beach and out of town but it ended up being perfect because we had everything to ourselves. We had 8 couples so each had their own suite and never got in each other's way. We decided to rent golf carts instead of cars and it was definitely the right choice. They were perfect for some people hitting the beach club or cruising down to Playa Lagosta which was completely private and gorgeous. The Beach Club is a great stop and we basically had that place to ourselves as well. Great food and drinks there. We booked a private chef for a few meals and it was amazing. The Stay in Tamarindo crew and our host were all great. We will definitely be going back and probably won't change a thing.

Unbelievable Costa Rican Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Villa Tranquila. The house is unbelievable and so are the surroundings. Gene the manager, makes the trip even better than you could ask for. He had great suggestions for restaurants, activities, beaches etc. We have 24 people and there was plenty of room for everyone. The house was spotless, the pool was great, and the rooms were cleaned each day. I have been all over the world and this was one of the best vacations ever. Everything on the entire trip went great. Could not have been happier.

30th Wedding Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at Villa Tranquila. The property is true to the pics, extremely nice and very comfortable. Eugene and Sary were excellent host to our family and even assisted us in obtaining flowers at a local florist, changing our beach site for the perfect location, and providing local contacts for massages and yoga there on the property. Our 30th Wedding Anniversary Celebration was truly a wonderful time and we are having Costa Rican withdrawals. Can't wait to return!!!!
