Clean, nice pool, great food in the dining area The city is far from the hotel.
Clean, adjustable firmness mattress. Good menu at restaurant with reasonable price. Free shuttle to airport. Convenience items for sale 24 hours, for that late night aloe, allergy meds, or upset stomach. English spoken by all staff I talked to. Nothing was bad about our stay.
Comfortable beds, and great service. The air conditioning is loud, and the windows don't open.
Staff was very nice and very helpful - far above and beyond expectations.
Room service was poor.
Great location. Friendly staff. Prompt to respond to requests. Exceptionally good food- surprise: buffet food was actually better than restaurants options. Lots of fun excursions and activities. VERY CLEAN BEACH! Night time shows were fun and good quality. Beds were clean and very comfortable. Near impossible to make restaurants reservation. Rooms would need more thorough cleaning and generally need updating. No privacy - all bathroom doors are see-through!
The grounds were impeccable. The staff was professional, amiable and well groomed. They treated every one like they owned the Casa Conde Del Mar.
We liked everything about our stay. Our only disappointment was that we did not stay longer. The property was perfectly maintained, the food was excellent and the service was fantastic. We would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family. Nice calm quiet beach and a beautiful large pool area. Perfect getaway! No complaints. Everything was perfect!
Beautiful Resort/Food was excellent No gym
Very clean and upgraded rooms, very quiet and peaceful. This is a great place for a tranquil stay.
Nice simple, elegant design. I liked our room with a balcony designed around a tree, and the room was very convenient. We had monkeys nearly every day all around us in the mornings and evenings and it was relatively quiet. Very relaxing and comfortable. Staff was very very nice. Great value for money, would come back if ever returning to north Guanacaste. Housekeeping was very late nearly each day, around 4pm. A bit later than would have liked. The hotel needs just a few simple touches to really amp it up - a simple potted cacti or flower on restaurant tables as well as a votive candle would significantly enhance the dining experience. Dinner quality was relatively poor, but breakfast was pretty good at a great value. After the first night we never ate in restaurant for lunch/dinner. Skimpy on coffee bags in room, had to ask for more.
Nice quiet condo-Resort with own private black-sand beach. Never saw more than 3 other people on beach the entire stay. Nice snorkeling right on beach. Go to the left near rocks for best views. If you rent a car, the condos up top have wonderful views. If walking, stay in condos closer to beach. Great security, night and day! Nice restaurant near lower pool and beach. Upper and lowers condos have different pools. Stayed in upper section right next to infinity pool. Hardly anyone using it so seemed like our private pool. Three bedroom condos are wonderful and clean. in reception, made our vacation!! He arranged snorkeling trip, canopy tours, rafting, horseback riding, river cruise and Monteverde guide/tour. He took care of everything and arranges a driver if you don't want to tackle the roads. Just give him a day notice and he will set your activities up. We travel a lot and have never seen anyone take care of a visitor like !! Coco is about 10 minutes away and has a lot of shops and a great supermarket (Super Mercado) with coffee shop across the street. Go another 6 miles to Hermosa and have dinner at Gingers, a great Tapas resturant. Take a day trip down coast to Flamingo Beach, Tamirindo Beach and on to National Park Beach. On way back, have dinner at one of many good resturants in Tamirindo. Food prices are moderate everywhere. Don't forget about the 23% tax/gratuity you'll pay for everything in Costa Rica. Tipping isn't expected but is appreciated, especially guides, boat Captains, etc. Be careful on roads, especially at night. Potholes are numerous on back roads and folks walk in roads at all hours. Beautiful country and people. Wish we could have stayed longer.
Can two adults and three teenagers enjoy themselves on a vacation? Well, we did and it did not take too much effort. The Bahia Pez Villas in Liberia Costa Rica is situated in the mountains of Guanacaste. The views from our room were breathtaking. The villa was spacious and clean. The people were friendly and hospitable. We went on several trips...a day trip to Nicaragua, the hot springs, Palo Verde and the volcano and rainforest by Lake Adenal as well as snorkeling. The trips were a bit costly but they were worth it. Costa Rica is a paradise and we plan to return at another time.
The internal patio and The restaurant The room didn't have ventilation and it smell really bad. They tried to make The smell better with candles but it was really strong. They gave us a free breakfast after we complained
Excellent staff and great safe feel. Hot as hell, loud external city at night, no hot water in shower.
Nice oasis in the otherwise forgettable Liberia WiFi didn't work, need to go to McDonalds but no biggie
Nothing and om being dead honest. If I had to pick anything is pick the food. Rooms are a dump !! I cannot express this any stronger, I paid 70 and I got ripped. Blankets were non existent, no a/c, no service, front desk guy was rude. Laughing and joking on a personal phone call while I was trying go check in. Not to mention the music that goes till 10pm, than fireworks. Screaming and music again at 5 am. No thanks !!
Restaurant was okay, close to bus station, central location Very noisy, rooms do not have carpet, no hot water in any rooms, hot at night, airport shuttle is a rip off at $25 when you can walk across the park and catch the public bus for $2
Very good value for money. Good location, clean, helpful and friendly staff
At the top of my list is the hotel staff. Warm smiles and generous service. Friendship. They responded quickly to meet my needs and expanded beyond what I asked for and made suggestions that enriched my experience. Suggestions for excursions came unprompted and they made arrangements for travel with taxi drivers they knew and had confidence in. I also greatly enjoyed the open air restaurant's cuisine. I wish I had some Aguacate de la Reina in from me right now. The whole experience left me with a permanent smile.
The beach was only a few minutes drive/walk away. The staff, especially the front desk guy, was very nice and helpful. Breakfast is pretty good as well.
Cate and I came here for our first few days of our 15 day Honeymoon in Costa Rica. Everything about Hotel Casa Villa Blanca was perfect for us!! Quaint and beautiful grounds within walking distance to the beach, incredibly helpful and happy Staff (Lis and Gabriel are the Best...felt like friends for Life), delicious and authentic breakfast (fresh fruit, hand blended juices, eggs, rice and beans, and coffee) to get your day off to a perfect start on their covered patio (which is also a magnificent place to have a couple drinks and watch the thunderstorms and rain during Green a season. We are so blessed to have found this place and would love to come back soon. Pura Vida
