The price was really reasonable for the standard of this place. Just a note worth knowing, we stayed 4 nights and the room wasn't serviced once - so don't put... More

Wow! Where do I start? Surf Vista Villas exceeded all my expectations. The property was beautiful. We stayed upstairs and had a wrap around balcony. The ocean view was incredible and so peaceful. The privacy was excellent. We had our own hammock and outdoor table and chairs which we spent a lot of time at listening to the monkeys and... More

Andy and Crystal were great to deal with from the start. Before we even got there, my boyfriend and I worked with Crystal to set up tours for our time in Costa Rica.
