Beautifully landscaped villas with an array of different size accommodations. Each villa separated a comfortable distance from the others gives you privacy. We saw sloths high in the trees on the property and cute little spider monkeys too. Bordered by a river with no neighbors in sight, a high wall on the other boundaries. The villas are custom built by...

I stayed with my 2 sisters after an unpleasant experience at another place nearby. I was there for 3 nights and found it to be one of the most welcoming places I've stayed. I could wander through the garden area and the owner would be there and asked if the accomodations were fine, if he could get us anything else,...

I absolutely loved staying here. I was able to stay in, what seemed like a house. It was fully gated, had a hammock on the front porch, a huge bedroom, a fully stocked kitchen and outdoor shower. It was perfect after a great day of surfing. Check out the sea kings surf shop if youre there.

This is my 6th trip down to Pavones, Costa Rica, which is far down on the Panama border and sits along the Gulfo Dulce. I really enjoy staying at the Riviera. The grounds are beautiful, there are banana, star fruit, pineapple, mango, and other fruit trees (I know, pineapples are not on a tree... more like a bush.... sort of)....

We stayed in the smallest cabina, farthest from the road. It has two beds, but comfortably only sleeps 2 people. It would probably be too cramped for 3 people. It is tiny, but has a spacious covered patio, and a private outdoor shower. The grounds are beautiful! It is a about a 5 minute walk from the ocean. I highly...

We did not plan on staying Pavones, but after the long trip there, we decided to stay. We stumbled upon riviera after a local told us it was the nicest place in Pavones. He was right. We stayed in the most beautiful casita with this great tiled patio that we spent most of our time sitting on. Not only was...

I went to Pavones on a surf trip with my boyfriend. We had the Cabina nearest to the road. There was a gate that closed off the property at night. The cabina accommodated up to 6 people so it was really spacious. It had a full kitchen so we cooked almost every day. The location was great- a 5 minute...

This past summer I made my 5th trip to Costa Rica, and this was my 4th stay at the Pavones Riviera. Shawn and Jamie (the owners) are extremely nice, and they took care of all of my needs. The Riviera is clean, and it is in an excellent location... very easy access to the few resturants in town, the grocery...

I have been to Costa Rica 5 times, four of those times I went to Pavones, and all four of those times I stayed at the Riviera. The property it sits on is beautiful. Extremely well landscaped, with fruit trees, clover beds, nice trees, etc. This place is very secluded, safe, quiet, and peaceful. The rooms are large, have A/C,...

We had a great couple of days in our little villa in Pavones, a sleepy little surfing town down by the Panamanian border. In fact we extended our stay by a day because we loved it so much. Our little one room cabina was simple, clean and charming. A little kitchenette was stocked with basics and The Riviera provided you...

“All villas have plants and trees around and are fairly private. Some of the villas are better for larger groups.”
