“A memorable vacation for ten friends and family in a stunning villa!”
Reviewed 19 June 2016 for a stay in April 2015

There were 10 of us, from 3 different countries, and we all came together in the house of gold. None of us regretted our choice.

I was met at the airport and promptly whisked away to the villa. I was the first one there and would have this stunning home to myself for a whole 24 hours before the rest arrived. It was bliss.

Situated atop a towering cliff, on the edge of a promontory, the setting was jaw-droppingly beautiful. We were shown to a lovely main floor suite beside the pool and were soon in said pool with a cocktail prepared and served for us at the swim-up bar. Except for climbing out to take ever more stunning photos of the cliffs and ocean stretching out before us, we stayed in the pool until dinner. Except for a few short outings, we all pretty much lived in that pool. Though not technically an infinity pool, its position at the cliff's edge made it seem like we could swim off the edge into the ocean. It's just gorgeous.

Our first dinner was great, with some local dishes presented that were carefully prepared by the lovely staff. Because we were joined by picky eaters, including 4 kids under 13, subsequent meals were geared toward their comfort zones, so our two sophisticated palates weren't as satisfied. However, based on that first dinner, it's clear the kitchen is well able for it when requested and we certainly enjoyed all the meals.

We were left alone after dinner to enjoy the house and spent time out of the pool playing games, watching movies, and sipping drinks in the large, cozy open-air living area. Sunsets from here are absolutely incredible. We slept very well in cozy air-conditioned comfort and the beds were comfortable. All 10 of us had our own beds, with only a couple of the youngest kids sharing a room. None of us felt cramped, there is so much room for everyone to play and relax, together or separately.

Our group was rather demanding and the staff handled it all with grace and good humor. From changing meal selections at the last minute to making endless rounds of milkshakes for the kids, to driving us to and from the beach town - they did everything to make us feel pampered and our vacation special. Some of our group did have issues finding the villa. They drove from San Jose and the directions and signposts were unclear and hard to spot.

This is a gorgeous area of Costa Rica - it's no accident the Four Seasons is nearby, and the competition in this luxury market is high, but Vista de Oro not only meets high expectations, it exceeds them.
