Can't begin to imagine a better place to stay on the Osa Peninsula. It's the whole package. Incredible views,rooms,wildlife,staff, management and food. Laid back atmosphere catering to all your needs. Could barely tear ourselves away after 5 nights there. Do yourself a favor and book a stay at Laguna Vista Villas. Simply the best.

We were in Laguna vista and had a superb vacation. The rooms are very clean, fantastic view, better than any picture can take. Nice food and very well organised excursions. Great and superb pool with also great view. We were lucky the owners Greg and Keiko were there. Very fine and helpfull people.

We just returned to Seattle after a most enjoyable, fun and relaxing 3-night stay here. A salt water lagoon wraps around this pristine property so you get to spot many varieties of Herons, Pelicans, Kingfishers, Ibises and other water birds when you kayak on the lagoon, which is a few steps from the villas. Santos kept us well fed! That...

We were greeted by Greg the owner, a spectacular view of the lagoon, ocean and many Macaws. We were shown our private villa with a comfortable king size bed overlooking the lagoon and ocean, with plunge pool and outdoor bathroom. We enjoyed the sunsets and privacy on our hammock. The infinity pool is one of the best designed pools compared...

My wife and I stayed there for a wonderful week-long eco-holiday celebrating our 50th anniversary. It was superb: great cottage with view of the ocean, lagoon and tropical rainforest, excellent gourmet food, warm friendly staff, attentive owner -- what more could one want? They went out of their way to prepare a special lunch to celebrate our 50th! Lovely!

Martine is an amazing host, who will bend over backward to make your stay wonderful. If you want to learn about how the rainforest functions, this is the place. The inifinity pool looks over the Pacific ocean, the cabinas are clean and beautiful. The sound of the ocean lulled us to sleep every night. Our trip was handled beautifully, from...

I would highly recommend travelling to the Osa Peninsula and staying at Laguna Vista Villas. The views of the lagoon and the ocean are incredible and the sunsets are breathtaking. I loved the intimate and cozy feeling created during the meal at the main lodge and appreciated that it was a smaller resort with less traffic. I was able to...

I loved every second of my stay at LVV. I had a glorious deck with a plunge pool and a hammock. When I wasn't hiking in Corcovado or horseback riding along the pristine beach, I was laying in my hammock listening to the crashing waves. When I got a little warm I just slipped into my fabulous plunge pool. For...
