I have stayed at Mareas Villas twice and can not to go back again! This place is majestic. I have traveled the world and have been to over 30 different countries, each with their own special place in my mind but nothing has ever compared to the unique beauty of this Villa. Whatever your interest, there is a remarkable offering...

The location and setting of Mareas is beautiful. However, I feel the need to share our experience having my daughter's wedding there. The wedding was held in the middle of June, and was planned over the course of about a year. Anyone planning to have a wedding there should be aware of a few things. There are daily power outages....

It is unfortunate and sad to receive a review such as this as we work very hard to satisfy our guests in every way possible. There were hints dropped by members of her family that she was difficult to satisfy and we did everything in our power to make her feel comfortable. The month of June proved to be a...

I hosted my retreat at the Villa and I cannot say how pleased I am with the result. It was way beyond my expectations! The hosts Pilar and Tim were amazing and everything about the place was incredible. The wild life surrounding the villa was so fun to be a part of. The taxisituation in the area needs to improve.

Mareas is by far the most beautiful place we have ever been!! The rooms are huge and some have very cool outside showers. The infinity pool is gorgeous and so is the hot tub. And the waterfalls on the property are amazing. Sweet people own it, and we hope to come back again soon!

If you are a bride considering a wedding at Mareas, go for it! It will be hard to find a more beautiful venue and compared to what you would find at a similar venue in the US, the pricing for the ceremony is very reasonable. Tim and Pilar worked with me for a year leading up to the wedding (36...

Absolutely stunning spot for a wedding! The whole villa is really beautiful with a stunning infinity pool with incredible views of the rain forest and ocean - we saw so many stunning birds.

Incredible is not good enough. I couldn't ask for more. The rooms were clean and spacious. The grounds were gorgeously manicured. We eventually found ourselves in the infinity pool overlooking the jungle and coast at least twice a day. Close enough to other tourist sites by short car ride. There's a couple trails for hiking that took us to a...
