We spent 2 weeks travelling around Costa Rica and for the views and setting this was hands done the best place we stayed. To get to the hotel you have to navigate a steep, unpaved road off route 34. That was pretty unnerving but it did feel quite adventurous! We arrived before the stated check in time but this wasn't...

How could anyone not find this a wonderful place to stay. Warm, welcoming, friendly staff, great accommodation and a fabulous setting. Situated a few miles south of Dominical just off the Route 34 coastal road. The actual turn is not easy to see from the main road - best to set the Satnav with the hotel shown as "Points of...

This is my go to place when I want peace and quiet. I have been there four times. I live half time USA half time Costa Rica. I love peace and quiet, and with only seven villas, and tourists usually leaving to see sights during the day equals peace and no screaming kids playing Marco Polo in the pool. On...

Villas Alturas is marvellous. The villas are lovely, the people that work there are great, the views are amazing. Every villa has sea view, a spectacular 180 (or so) degrees of Pacific bliss. Some a bit more than others, but it's amazing every morning. We were in Villa 7, which has a great view although it is partially blocked by...

I was so pleased that the reviews of this place were absolutely accurate. We had Villa 2 which overlooked the ocean. Spectacular spectacular view, you have to pinch yourself to believe it. Staff were very friendly and helpful especially the night manager. They were very nice and genuine. If you want to learn Spanish, the staff are great teachers as...

We can not say another good things about our stay at Villas Alturas. We were in costa rica for 2 and a half weeks and villas alturas was a definite highlight. The villas are beautiful and traveling with children, having a kitchen is such a nice perk. The included breakfast was delicious! Our kids never wanted to leave the pool!!...

Great little hotel in Dominical area. Steep but doable road heads up hill to great view of Whale's Tail. We stayed in Villa 3 which was private and nice. Ac in room worked well and kept us cool. Breeze during day was nice. Incredible view and in the middle of great sites.

We stayed 4 nights and found the place quiet and remote. (Rent a car as taxi is $30) First off its not luxury: You cannot flush your toilet paper in toilet because of small pipes. Housekeeping cleaned daily however, the unit needed deep cleaning. Mold in shower and floor. The staff is well LAZY. (They need to clean!) Its very...

We just returned from 6 nights at the Villas Alturas and absolutely loved it! We had a 2-bedroom unit, Room 7, and it was spacious for the 4 of us. The deck is amazing - very large with a hammock, rocking chairs and a table/chairs. The incredible view was the best part. The pool area was beautiful (again with an...

We have been to Domincal three times in the last year. The Villas are clean, spacious, and in a beautiful location. The staff takes great care of the hotel, and they are courteous and just fun to chat with. We stayed and Air B+B places, but Villas Alturas is better because you have the best of the hotel and a...
