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!”

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!

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.

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

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.

We had such an amazing time! I’m so sad to pack up and leave. The setting provided the perfect place to propose to the love of my life! I have memories for a lifetime. Thank you so much Chema, Damaris, and Susana for the hospitality and smiles. Thank you for the memories of a lifetime that we’ll never forget. Pura Vida!

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!
