“A wonderful gathering place for a family. The view each morning is spectacular – the food is incredible – and the the margaritas and pina coladas are the best! We have zipped through the trees, floated down a river, and sailed to a secret beach! We have talked to monkeys and wandered along a black sand beach! What a wonderful moment in time for our family – thanks from all of us!—T.B. & C.B.

“Be prepared to gain weight! The food, service, and ambiance were incredible. The weather couldn’t have been better and I enjoyed everything about the villa. Thanks.”—G.F., Los Angeles, CA

“You should be getting some activity on your web site because I am telling everyone I know they need a vacation like this. Thanks so much. Villa Allamanda is beautiful!”

“Just wanted to tell you how much I loved your villa and Costa Rica! I can’t wait to go back! I’ve given my family & friends your website to plan their own vacations. Your staff is excellent; Olmon, Tamaris, Carlos, Allen, Tomato, Guarnar…all professional. All I can say is “wow!” And thanks for your help with the church; the mass was in Spanish but very interesting. I met some people who sat behind me in church from Rock Hill, SC whose son’s at Clemson–small world. Anyway, I could go on but I won’t bore you. I definitely want to make Costa Rica a regular vacation destination! Thanks.” —A.G., Atlanta, GA

“Oh my—We have just returned from the vacation of a lifetime. We were treated like Kings and Queens by the staff at the villa and Doug and Carlos. We drank pina colata at 10:00 in the morning and decided that we didn’t want to drive all over Costa Rica when we had a view like the one at Villa Allamanda. We really want to stress how much we like Noel, Demaris and Lillete (I’m sure that I didn’t spell the names correctly) but because of them our trip was perfect. We think that Ocotal is paradise and we loved every minute of our vacation. We will be planning our next on soon.Thank you for everything.”—D.D., Jackson, MS

“Oh my gosh!!!! It was fabulous, just fabulous. We all had a perfectly wonderful time. The kids loved it, we loved it, everyone loved it. The house, the food, the staff – far exceeded expectations. It was a very smooth operation and everyone was not only friendly but incredibly professional as well. Hats off to Damaris – she’s a fabulous cook and we enjoyed getting to know her a little, only language differences kept us from becoming the closest of friends. If you speak to her soon, please tell her I said hello. Oman was great too and seemed to enjoy having so many young people around. Thanks so much for your help in making this a perfect vacation.” —L.M., Atlanta, GA

“I could write ten pages on how much my family enjoyed the trip. All I can say is we can’t wait to go back!!!”

“Our family had a wonderful vacation – everyone was dissapointed the day we had to leave. We hope to return in the future. The staff was super friendly and very helpful and attentive.” —P.C & T.C., Austin, TX

“The vacation was awesome. It greatly exceeded my expectations. We loved the staff. We had Ruth, Francisco, and Lilian. Ruth has got to be the best cook. We thought we would lose a couple pounds by vacationing but gained instead. Francisco was great and didn’t miss a beat. We went on the canopy and Rafting tour. We got together with a guy by the name of Jose and his son Grabin and they took us on a water tour and through a river. Went on fishing trip. Had a few drinks at Father Roosters. Wes, Taryn and I all had massages on the boucony. A good time enjoyed by all. The internet pictures don’t do justice. We really enjoyed the birds and monkeys. I guess no one will understand how wonderful it is down there until they go. Thanks again for all your help. Be sure to stay in touch.”—K.N., Annapolis, MD

“We had a wonderful time in Costa Rica and we absolutely loved our time at Villa Allamanda. The location was perfect and the staff was really great… we absolutely loved the food! Thanks again for touching base…. we will definitely be returning to Costa Rica one day”—R.B., CA

“Everything was perfect, from the villa itself to the georgeous view to the unbelievable staff, to the tours, everything! We really thank you so much for all your help in making our vacation memorable, fun, and super relaxing. I can’t wait to recommend your villas to all my friends” —D.K.

“Well we are back, but none of us wanted to leave. Everything went as planned and we had a fantastic time. The Villa is amazing, but all your photographs can’t do the view justice. Having made the exciting climb up the mountain road we parked and walked through the front door and straight out onto the pool patio. The view just takes your breath away and I can’t tell you how many hours we simply sat there enjoying it. The staff were wonderful, Ruth, the cook prepared wonderful meals with lots of variety, Noel took care of our every need and Emma kept the place spotless. They were great and there were more than a few tears shed we came to say goodbye. We Thanks for all the help, will be in touch for the next trip are all checking our future schedules.”—M.B., Richmond, VA

“What a wonderful vacation – couldn’t have been better! The staff was great, the food marvelous – view breathtaking. Thanks for everything!”—D.V., MD

“When my in-laws announced last Christmas that we were taking a family trip to Costa Rica, I was so excited! Well, the experience here did not let anyone down and in fact exceeded our expectations. First, the house/villa is so nice and very well maintained. The staff was wonderful. Thank you Noel, Demarius, and Lillith! Second, there was so much to do here. My husband and I drove down to Tamarindo for surf lessons; that was an adventure in itself. A canopy tour is a must – it is exhilerating to zip through the jungle. Sailing was great – the captain took us to a secluded beach that looked to be straight out of National Geographic. For fishermen, Costa Rica is great. In only a half day trip we landed 18 yellowfin, 2 sailfish, and 8 wahoo! Third, the country itself is friendly and easy to get around. Anyway, we loved it here and will come back again soon.”—M.B. & B.B, Chapel Hill, NC

“We had a fantastic time…AGAIN…Villa Allamanda is such a restful haven for our family. It was such a blesssing to have my parents with us this time…they loved it as much as we do. I think they are as “hooked” as we are!” —K.A., NH

“My folks enjoyed it so much they want to go back. Is the week after Christmas available this year? If so, we might want to do it all over again.” —Birmingham, AL

“We have had many family vacations before, in some very special places, but this by far was our best. Being in that environment with our children, grandbaby and Molly & Todd, was all anyone could ask for. Not only was the facility absolutely great, but the staff was outstanding — we loved Caesar! We are already talking about doing it again next year.”
