This includes the birds, monkeys, flowers, and a lemur that we never saw. Pillar swore he was there but he didn't show up during my week stay. It is...

Where to start! Mareas Villas is an absolutely magical and amazing home away from home. My stay at Mareas Villas was the perfect balance of relaxation and adventure. I traveled to Costa Rica with six of my friends. We planned to stay at Mareas for three nights, and then drive to Jaco and stay the rest of the week. When...

I have traveled all around the world and I can tell you that my time spent at Mareas Villas was one of the best vacations I have ever had. The property is literally in the jungle, only steps away from wildlife and 7 different (yes 7) waterfalls. We had 9 different private villas to choose from and an infinity pool!...

Pure heaven. I recently stayed at Mareas Villas and it is absolutely stunning including the hosts Tim and Pillar. The rooms/suites are large, comfortable with elegant bathrooms and creatively appointed. The pool, ah I wish that I was still floating in it watching the gorgeous sunset as it is 1700 square feet of bliss. Everything that you could ask for...

Our stay at Mareas was a 5 day getaway with a close friend and hands down we enjoyed the golden hour (sunset) by the pool the most. As the sun went down we relaxed by the pool each day and listened to the chatter of the birds, cocktail in hand. The waterfall feature and spa were our favourite luxury items...
