Spent three weeks with nursing students in Costa Rica. Spent the weekend in limón at small resort. Very clean and wonderful service. Excellent restaurant. Rained one day but still great experience. Pool area and beach were wonderful. Students and I had great time. Need transportation to town but would recommend to all.

Unfortunately I was not able to stay at this hotel, but I know it since many years and was always received in a very friendly way when passing by as I work in the travel agency industry. This time I had dinner at their restaurant.

We haven't stayed there in many years, but it was wonderful then. It was simpler and more beautiful. There was much less environmental damage. However, we WOULD NOT stay there now. They use the practice of burning to get rid of their garbage. It's bad enough to be in the area when this happens, but as a guest I cannot...

I came here for a meal before the jaguar tour (five minute walk away). My typical plate was small and overpriced; there were tons of fruit flies everywhere, and I was expecting a bigger plate for my ~$10 meal! There was a good tea selection, and the grounds looked nice.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Life is at its tranquil best at Villas del Caribe. The days go something like this: You wake to the sound of bird songs and a view from your bed of silvery palms and clear blue sea. You throw open the sliding doors and take to the hammock on the balcony for a little rest, refreshed by the ocean breeze. You may now be ready to take a dip in our swimming pool and enjoy the elevated thatched Jacuzzi for a relaxing massage.Once the lure of the sea becomes too much, you wander through the landscaped gardens onto the beach path, where you face a decision between the long, deserted golden sand beach to the left or the many pristine golden sand beaches to the right.You settle for one of the shallow, sandy natural lagoons formed by the coral reef right offshore, and watch tropical fish wiggle past your toes.After a fresh water shower on your terrace, you walk over to the SeaSide Restaurant for breakfast or a snack, then you take a bike and cycle down the flat paved road past fields, forest, a few thatched bars and restaurants to Puerto Viejo for coffee or a drink, the local gossip, and some good, fresh fish at the beachfront store.You spend the afternoon alternating between the beach and the sea, the loungers on the terrace, and the hammocks on the balcony. ... more   less
