"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.
"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.
"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.
"WE HAD A FANTASTIC TIME!! Lantana was awesome and we spent most of our time hanging around the pool enjoying the view! The staff were all great! We did the Don Bosco BBQ and sunset so we had the boat to ourselves for the entire day...that was definitely a highlight so thank you for the recommendation! We really enjoyed CR and hope to return again! We have a lot of good memories and look forward to seeing each other's pictures at some time when we get together again. Thank you for all of your help, advice and information. You provided us with an awesome retirement celebration!!"D. A. Naples, FL
