Enjoyed our stay
We really enjoyed our week at Bukala #4. Max was very helpful in suggesting places to visit we never would have thought of. The villa was very clean...general housekeeping and new towels were provided every other day. For the two of us it was perfect and we had no issues we couldn’t work around.
There is not a lot of storage for clothes other than your suitcase. A few well placed hooks could help with that.
Our stay has been amazing, such a fantastic place to visit. The location is remote, 15 minute drive into centre of town. A car is a must have.
We truly enjoyed the activities and beauty of the area. The property manager Max was amazing, don't book ahead get your excursions through him. He is very informative & you will get a better price, guaranteed.
The home it wonderful as well, has everything you need & is well maintained & very clean. The hot tub was a nice bonus especially after hiking for the day.
The grounds are beautiful, enjoying sitting on deck listening to the birds surrounded by such lush gardens.
We did not give a 5* rating only because the wifi is very slow. I had asked prior to booking and was assured it was very good. My husband and I both run our own businesses so it is important we stay connected. There are no closets or dressers in the bedrooms so you have no where to put your clothes.
All in all, an amazing experience & would certainly recommend that you visit. Thank you Max.
Hi Lynne thank you for
You beautiful review , you were amazing guests I am very happy that you enjoyed .
I am trying to find the message that you asked me for better WiFi , i do not found ,I am very honest with that information, internet in each house is not like USA or Canada ,internet in all rural parts of my country is low but in case we have another modem which we lend to guests who need more speed, always If the guests ask for better internet I always tell them please remember me if you need the extra modem .
But next time please ask me I will give the extra modem !!!
Thank you so much for your stayed !
Come back soon!
Wonderful oasis near La Fortuna
We loved our stay over Christmas at Villa 4 in Bukala Villas. Our flight was late so we didn’t arrive until 1am but communication with Max was super smooth and we had no trouble getting in. The place was well appointed and perfect for our family of 5. The kids especially loved the hot tub each evening surrounded by sounds from the “jungle”. Max helped us with restaurant and activity recommendations. And we even got a special Christmas surprise gift of chocolates from the hosts! We liked being about 10 minutes from the hustle and bustle of the town and had no trouble with the short gravel road leading to the villas. Would definitely stay here again if we return to La Fortuna!
Max was very helpful with restaurant tips and sight seeing.
My family and I just returned from a fabulous stay at Unit #4. I can not say enough good things about our stay. The unit itself is nicely updated, with plenty of room for a family of 4. The living areas do not have air conditioning, but there is enough of a cool breeze at night and in the morning, that we were completely comfortable. The bedrooms do have air. The landscaping at the property is so lush and beautiful. There is a quiet stream that runs at the back of the property,and the pool is a nice bonus.
The property itself is about 10 minutes to La Fortuna. It is so nice and peaceful that it is worth the extra drive to town. We drove from San Jose. We had no trouble with Waze guiding the way. I will second the earlier review, that it was much easier to enter the name of the restaurant "El Gran Abuelo" and the road to the property is right beside the restaurant. The road to the villa is a gravel road, so be prepared for a short bumpy ride. However, before the end of our stay, a fresh load of gravel was placed on the road, and it was a much smoother ride.
Max was fabulous. He met us at arrival, and gave us the lay of the land so to speak. We took his advice and booked an ATV excursion, and we were so pleased.
We highly reccommend a stay here and hope to return soon.
Great property in a quiet area away from the hustle and bustle of La Fortuna but still a short deive away.
