Within walking distance to town, so you can enjoy some nightlife and shopping if you like, this place provides a nice relaxing, quite place to sleep, relax, and/or explore. I enjoyed the breakfast of fresh fruit and toast, the little bar, the pool, the close proximity to the beach, and all the little (jungle?) trails between the hotel and the...

I had first looked at Villas del Caribe about a month to six weeks earlier when I stayed at the Toucan , a nice little set of rustic cabinas run by a German couple. The lady who showed me around Villas del Caribe was courteous and friendly and frankly I was impressed. I planned on bringing clients of my tourism...

The service in this hotel was perfect. We stayed in standart double room for only 3 nights. the room was very beautiful and clean, located not far from the sea, so we could hear the waves. For breakfast there were fresh fruits, toasts and coffe. Free wi-fi access was very important for us. You can see sloths and hear monkeys...

Great rooms and near town. We took day trips to up and down the coast and loved coming back to the AC. We looked at several places and decided this was the best one!

Villas del Caribe is a fantastic value and right on the beach. Just south of Puerto Viejo with rooms just 50 meters to the beach. It is also a part of the beach even up and down from the hotel where you will find very few other people :o) Great for re-enacting a Corona commercial ... the grounds are green...

Best accomodations for a family in the area. Access to beach with fun tide pools. Location was nice, away from Puerto Viejo but not too far if you want to go into town...

I was very pleased when I saw my room here. I did not book it, so I had laid my trust in someone else. Ive stayed at many of the motel/hostels in town, and the villas was a treat. Our place had two levels, kitchen, living room downstairs, bedrooms, bath upstairs. The beach was practically out the front door. It...

We did not like it at all. The villa that we rent was very dirty and unconfortable. We were almost the only guest in the place. We left after one night. We would never go back there again and I do not recommend this place at all.

Stayed here twice. Great location, with ocean views (not that many places in this area have ocean views). Spacious accomodatons with kitchens and outdoor area to sit looking at ocean. Rooms were dated back in 2007 so its nice to hear they are being rennovated. I liked it here. Nice to hear the ocean at night. Bat was flying around...

As a group of 4 women, mid-20's, non-spanish speaking... we had a AMAZING stay at Villas Del Caribe. After many internet searches, we opted for this one. The website does not do the property justice. We stayed in a double unit, room #1 ( request that one-- easy access to front desk, restaurant, and walkway to beach.) The staff was...

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
