“Absolutely Spectacular!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2011

I have to begin by explaining that due to my job I get the chance to stay in many different places. I have traveled around the world, and I have had the chance to be exposed to many different rental houses, hotels, etc. The first point that called my attention about Casa Ramon was the initial contact: the owners. Their grace and professionalism is refreshing. A product is as good or as bad as the service that surrounds it creating the experience, so the beginning was great.

I stayed at Casa Ramon for 4 nights with my family on an inspection visit. My job is not to commend, but rather to give a fair critique, however, in this case Casa Ramon takes home all the prizes.

1. Rooms: the class and taste they decorated the place with is superb. Every detail has been taken care of meticulously - the mattresses are top of the line (that is one true measure of quality from where I am standing), the quality of the linens, the layout of each sleeping area has been done in a thought out way. The bathrooms are not just regular bathrooms, they all have details that make it unique from each other and extremely pleasant spaces. L' Occitane toiletries summarize the essence of the experience.

2. Decor: rustic/modern with high quality pieces, you can see details of taste such as the hand picked glass lamps, beautiful wall paintings, ample sofas, with solid tables and plenty of couch relaxing areas. Nothing is torn, nothing is dirty, everything in mint condition.

3. Unit: the house is divided into three floors. The spaces are very well distributed in that they are inclusive, yet private enough so you can manage your stay according to how social you wish to be. The Honeymoon Casita: is a little casita of the side of the pool that is private with its own kitchen and a beautiful four poster bed overlooking the ocean.

But the most impressive thing of all was this: in a house of that size and caliber, where you can find 9 different wine glass types, and everything you could envision for your own kitchen (never mind a holiday kitchen!) has everything in perfectly working order. Many times, properties such as this will have many gadgets, and you get enthused until you try to use some and they are not in working order. Then the romance is gone...At Casa Ramon the maintenance crew does such a superb job, there isn't a SINGLE thing that does live in working order.

What a vacation! I hope I have the chance to revisit.

Room Tip: The Master Bedroom and the Honeymoon Room offer a fantastic view!

We had the entire property to ourselves for an entire week during our honeymoon.

This really is the perfect place. Every ounce of the house is incredible. The rooms are gorgeous, the furniture is beautiful, and the view from the pool/lookout must be seen to be believed. I can't really describe how awesome it was to have this huge house all to ourselves (of course, they locked off the bedrooms we weren't using, but that's a non-issue).

Also, the wildife viewing from the pool area is AMAZING. We saw more action in the "backyard" than we did on any of our jungle tours. During the day, toucans, aracaris, lizards, monkeys, racoons, parakeets, and squirrels. At night, toads, geckos, and some pretty crazy insects (outside of course!).

A little rustic, a lot luxurious, and a mountain of romantic.

Lastly, phenomenal service. The staff lives in a house out back. They give you all the privacy you want, but are nearby if you need them. We felt quite safe.

The Villa Casa Ramon could not have been more perfect for us and the nine people we invited for our special week. The luxurious accommodations, fine appointments and attention to detail were evident everywhere in the house and on the grounds. We and our guests were "blown away" by the Casa and the Staff.

The Staff was attentive to our every need, beyond what one would expect at a 5 Star hotel. Villa Manager Marlon and staff members Henry, Nidia, Jay, and message therapist Evelyn are to be commended for their service. Chef Patricia, was fabulous. Each meal seemed to be better than the last, if that were possible, and anything we wished for was prepared exceptionally well and pleased each of our varied tastes.

Our stay at Casa Ramon went well beyond what we had expected and in our foreign travels over the past 25+ years, we have come to expect quite a lot. We would and will recommend Casa Ramon and the Dominical region to anyone. We can hardly wait for our next Casa Ramon visit!

My wife and I along with two other couples stayed at Casa Ramon for a week this summer. My wife and I had been there about 7 or 8 years ago but it has gone through a dramatic renovation since then. Casa Ramon is incredible, lots of open space, great views of the Pacific, Toucans (you know, the fruitloop birds) in the trees every day, extremely comfortable beds and a great staff on hand to help with whatever arises. Both Manuel Antonio and Corcovado National Parks are pretty close, though Corcovado would be best as an over nighter. We all are looking forward to a return trip very soon.

We ventured here for relaxation, fun, surf, adventure and a bit of away time, and definitely got it all and then some wrapped in a beautiful elegan "treehouse" . From long before we even got to the airport, John, Ana and Jorge (the owners) wanted to ensure our trip would be fantastic and sent suggestions and options that were all anyone could ask for (yet it was helpful and not pushy or annoying at all). Anything from massages, chef service, airport pickup and adventure were easily within reach. We went there with four other couples (all friends) and will definitely be looking to return. Aside from all of the pre-trip arrangements available, anything we wanted to do was easily within our reach once we arrived. The house was beautiful, we cooked in a different kitchen every night just because we could! The bathrooms were beautiful, the grounds fantastic, and the views (including the toucans and monkeys) were amazing and the service and comfort was unparalleled. Definitely recommended if you get the opportunity! I know - I sound like an ad, but honestly, FANTASTIC! All around! My only tiny drawback would possibly be that it was a bit of an unfinished path/hike to the beach, but the pool and house were so beautiful, I hardly noticed...and of course, for those who just can't leave it all behind, there was wifi...I logged on the first day....

We recently returned from our stay at Casa Ramon in Dominical and cannot wait to return! The hosts, John and Jorge, along with their warm and welcoming staff, made us feel immediately at home. The property is immaculately maintained with a spectacular pool and jacuzzi. We greatly enjoyed our mornings on the veranda eating breakfast and watching the toucans fly overhead. The views of the ocean and Costa Rican jungle are gorgeous at every time of day - sunrise to sunset. This home is the perfect getaway for couples looking for a romantic vacation and also for families wanting to reunite in paradise. Centrally located in the area of Dominical - close to great surf spots, restaurants, and hiking trails. The perfect combination of relaxation, comfort, and luxury. We loved Casa Ramon so much that we are holding our wedding there in 2011. If only we could spend every day in paradise!!

I booked this Villa for a week in March for 8 adults and 8 children. When we arrived the caretakers Carlos and Anna were so nice and so excited about showing us the amenities the house had to offer. From the fresh flower arrangements all over the house to the beautiful fresh fruit baskets. We had such a nice welcome. We all were very comfortable here with our sleeping arrangements and were able to have our own space when needed.
We hired a local chef to cook dinners for us and he was amazing. I really recommend his services. The gardens are amazing. We always found some surprise bug, animal or creature every day of our stay, which the kids found fascinating.
We did amazing adventures right from the Villa. Everything is so easy to get to.

I cannot say enough about this beautiful place. We will definitely come back to visit
