We were a group of 5 ladies in need of girl time. This place was spectacular! It offered us the opportunity to splurge on ourselves, we had massages in our rooms, dinners prepared by staff from Star Villa Concierge, outings to a river boat cruise, a day of adventure at Buena Vista for zip lining, hot springs and a visit to the water fall, and a full day on a motor boat. Even with the excursions, we took advantage of relaxing by the gorgeous pool and pavilion which were majestic and rejuvenating. We spent our evenings enjoying chef prepared dinners, playing board games and girl talkWhat could be better!! We chose to rent a car (I would suggest) It was easy to navigate the area. Next time, we might bring our husbands!

My description of this home is paradise. You cannot imagine a more perfect setting combined with a husband and wife, who are on-sight caretakers. You will see exotic birds, howler monkey's, and a local family of Iguanas that sit on the roof of the gazebo and watch over you. The view and the sounds of the waterfall in the pool and the pacific ocean are breathtaking. There is a pavilion that sits out on the edge of the mountain overlooking the ocean that provides great opportunities for families to gather, reading, visiting, you name it, you can enjoy it here. 4 MBR's allow for no fighting when bringing larger groups. They are all the same. Gated community and a gated property will give you the feeling of security night and day. The only negative to this home is leaving it to go to the airport. There is only one negative, and that would be when you leave to head home.

My daughter and I just returned from a luxurious week at this lovely villa in beautiful Playa Hermosa. With vaulted ceilings, spacious and artistically-decorated living areas, and an infinity pool that spills into a breathtaking view of the ocean and beaches below, it felt like a full resort. The outdoor pavilion is great for relaxing, swimming, playing games with the family, and absorbing the atmosphere. We occupied one of the opulent master bedrooms on the second floor, and loved sitting on its balcony to enjoy the breeze and unobstructed scenery. The property caretakers, Macho and Maria, are a warm and friendly couple who live in the casita and served as our hosts. They did as much to take care of us as they did for the home. Fabulous restaurants pepper Playa Hermosa within walking distance, both on and off of the beach. We especially loved a nearby Asian Fusion restaurant, Ginger, which feels like a huge treehouse made magical with hanging lanterns. In addition to spoiling ourselves daily with fresh tropical fruits and fine dining, we jet skied, surfed, paddle boarded, snorkeled in the beautiful blue water of the Pacific, and explored the culture of nearby attractions. Whether you are seeking spa-like relaxation, adventurous activity, or the perfect combination of both, you will love this gorgeous oceanside slice of paradise.
