What Our Guests Are Saying About Villa Paraiso


February 24–March 3, 2018
Wow! This week is the first time all of my brothers and sisters have been together for a whole week. I think the last time was around 1975 or ’76. Yes, all eight of us! We are truly blessed and to top it off, the view, rooms, food, staff, all first-class treatment. It was truly a very relaxing week. We all looked forward to hearing the Dinner bell! 5-star food every meal! Our memories of this week will stay with us forever. Thanks for making it the “best vacation ever!”
-- Brad and Barb Gerke

Thank you for a wonderful experience! We spent the week here with family, 12 of us in total, and it was amazing! It was our first time in Costa Rica and it won’t be our last. Thank you for your hospitality, beautiful amenities and wonderful food. It was one of our best vacations ever.
-- Robert, Kristen and Jacob Caldwell.

What a wonderful week it was here at Villa Paraiso! We spent the week here with my brother’s family and my sister’s family and will have beautiful memories from our visit to last a lifetime. The accommodations and the staff were fabulous! The meals were absolutely delicious and the drinks were perfect! We thoroughly enjoyed our weeklong experience here and can’t wait to return to Costa Rica!
-- The Marino family

July 22–29, 2017
With a family of 10 and four friends, we begin discussing and then booking our weekend at Villa Paraiso nine months ago. We read about the all-inclusive features which included the horseshoe shaped luxury villa, large infinity pool, three meals a day, and a talented 5-star staff. Over the next nine months our excitement grew and grew as we look forward to this week together. Tonight, we have just finished our incredible, last dinner together. Our talk around the table can be summarized with this statement: Damaris, Chema, Susana, Candida and Allan have redefined all-inclusive as being more than features but being together with them as of special family. We have been blessed.
-- The Malfitano Family

June 17, 2017
This was a great week for the 14 of our family. When you are here they treat you amazing. They cook, clean, and serve you. Some of my favorite things were watching Jennifer cook all of us breakfast, playing volleyball in the pool, and laughing with all my family. It was amazing sitting at a square table being able to talk to everyone. Chema gets you any drink and he will even bring them right to the pool for you. Costa Rica Villa Paraiso is the best place ever.
-- Kennedy, Beth Benson-Heth Group

Thanks again to the amazing staff for making this a fabulous vacation. This year I fulfilled a dream and brought my whole family to experience my favorite place. Many thanks and Pura Vida! Hope to see you all again!
-- Beth Benson-Heth

Wow!! Where has the week gone? First time to Costa Rica and this place is amazing. The staff were great and catered to our every need. The food for every meal was prepared to perfection. Villa Paraiso has the most beautiful view of Ocotal Bay and the sunrise was gorgeous every morning. It was difficult to leave the Villa, but we did swim in the ocean, zip line, shop, and take a boat on the river. Thank you so much for making my first trip to Costa Rica unforgettable and thanks again to this wonderful staff. Chama, DeMaris, Susana and others for making our stay comfortable.
-- Sarah, Michelle, Evan, and Makiah

-- Jimy and Lyndsey, Seabrook, TX

There is no way to express the gratitude we feel for the beauty and experience on our friend vacation at the Villas. There were breathtaking views around every corner and the staff went far beyond our expectations. There was never a time during our stay in which we wanted or needed anything more. Additionally, every person we met happily answered our questions and taught us about the culture and life here in Costa Rica. Our group made many memories that we’ll forever hold dear. We hope this is a tradition we continue for many years and that in our travels we find ourselves back at the Villa surrounded by beauty and the excellent care you so generously provided. With much love, thank you and Pura Vida! Chema, Demaris, and Susana are the best!

We booked this trip so long ago and didn’t think much about it with our crazy busy lives. It almost snuck up on us and when we walked through the door, we were in awe of the incredible view! Better than the pictures and a week later, it’s still not getting old.   Chema, Damaris and Susana took excellent care of us and we’re fighting over which of us can take them back home with us. Our favorite things/meals:
Sarah Melms – Don Bosco sunset sail, pork chops and rum punch!
Cara Marren – zip line, Don Bosco, every meal and dessert, and rum punch
Kim Schimmel – the view, amazing pool, and the great staff
Beth Daffin – rum punch, sunset cruise, and the food!
