I was with a family group staying here from Feb 20 to Mar 20, 2013. We were the new owners first. The previous owner Bill, left the new owners in a bad spot. He had sold off the bikes, kayaks, snorkling equip we were told of. He also took the deposit. This left Florian in a difficult situation. He did...

A Facebook add caught our attention so My wife and I decided to travel to the other side of Costa Rica and see how the Caribbean side lives. What a wonderful top shelf experience we had.Our room was spotlessly clean with touches of French finery here and there. The room was a bit small or the bed a bit large...

Also very close to the beach, two minutes by bikes which come with the room. Very nice to have breakfast brought to our veranda every morning - the kids loved the hot chocolate and the croissants. From our veranda we saw monkeys, sloths and a keel billed toucan - all in just a weeks stay. We had a great time...

We spent 4 nights with our family of 5 at villa Monos in July. Although we had lots of rain, we had a great time. Estelle is a gracious host and takes good care of her place. Stylishly decorated rooms, very clean. Breakfasts are delicious!!! A real jungle lodge, gorgeous beach, great vibe. Recommended!

We stayed at Pachamama for 8 nights in July. Estelle was a wonderful host who helped us in any way she could and provided a delicious breakfast every morning. It was wonderful falling asleep every night to nature sounds (frogs, howler monkeys, insects, rain, etc.). It poured rain almost every evening which was unlike anything we experienced anywhere else but...

Estelle takes amazing care of her property and little cottages and her breakfasts were fantastic! Unfortunately for us, we were there when it was very rainy and stormy and didn't get to do any snorkel, fishing or kayaking trips which is what we went there to do.
