We stayed in room 6 up. The view was breathtaking. We saw monkeys and beautiful birds right off of the balcony. Good parking with security cameras and a guard at night. Free breakfast in the morning had two options but was good and filling. Nice shaded pool area that was surrounded by lush plants and lounge chairs. Rooms were small...

Villas Nicolas is a collection of separately owned timeshare villas, but as a group it’s treated as a hotel, with a pool (the water can be a little warm), bar and reception. Nestled high up on the hill amongst the trees the villas all look out West to the pacific ocean, each with their own shaded balcony and hammock. Our...

Villas Nicolas is centrally located close to a shopping plaza (supermarket) and most of the better restaurants in the area. We especially liked Emilio's cafe up the hill. I've never seen so many rules and regulations posted all around the room and hotel area as here at Villas Nicolas. I guess it shows that the villas are well managed. Although...

Stayed for 10 days and had a great time. We had 2 villas, both with a view, wake up to the sound of monkeys and other wildlife. The upper villas tend to be a bit noisier, since they are closer to the street. Pool is great, especially when you come back from an outing and need refreshment. Breakfast is included...

We stayed for a week here. The staffs are friendly and very helpful. The villas are well maintained. There are animals you can see every early morning. You would wake up with the birds singing or monkeys cries 😂. If you want to sleep in, please don't forget to bring ear plugs! The villas only gave you soaps so be...

Stayed there for 4 days, beautifully maintained property. Cleaned every day, security guard on property, although not needed. Close to park, bus stop outside property. Breakfast was fine, good basic food. Only odd parts were that you had to rent beach towels for $2 each and rent the key for the room safe. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Air...

The rooms are very clean and the grounds and pool area are well groomed and beautiful. You can also view the ocean from chairs . Great location, you can walk everywhere, and/or the bus stop is right in front of the villa and comes ever 15-20 minutes. The best part of all was sitting on our porch and watching the...

Spent 3 nights at Villas Nicolas at the end of an 11-day trip around Costa Rica. It's a beautiful, tranquil place with stunning ocean views and amazing wildlife. Saw tucas, capuchins, howlers, butterflies etc at the hotel. Rooms are beautiful and staff are very helpful. Would definitely come back. The only improvement point is breakfast. Quality and quantity of the...

We stayed here for 2 nights during a 2 week tour of Costa Rica and wished we could have stayed for longer! The Villa's have amazing views and are of a high quality, the staff were also very friendly and happy to help. We would definitely book again.
