“Guest Host with the Most”

Reviewed 20 Apr 2015

Staying with Calin and Silvia made the vacation the best we could have ever hoped for. Calin had a driver pick us up from the airport (at our expected expense of course), making the initial entrance to the country an easy transition to vacation mode. We came to CR with no agenda and no plans. Calin gave us ideas including a day trip to Nicaragua. He called a tour company and set up the date and time and got back to us quickly so that we could plan more around it. We were able to experience more in one week staying here than other travelers staying at high end resorts. Staying here was truly a blessing sent from above. The view was just as expected. Beautiful and only a 7 min walk to the beach. Having a pool only steps away from your door was perfect. What an amazing couple, who shared their family and time with us while we were there. It felt more like we were staying with family then staying in a hotel. We certainly will come back, if only to see Calin and Silvia again.

“Best villa and hosts one could hope for.”

Reviewed 9 Feb 2015

I stayed at Villa El Sueno de Ocotal for two weeks and thoroughly enjoyed it. The scenery is spectacular. The room was very well maintained and in excellent condition. All the amenities as stated.. I think the best thing about staying at Villa El Sueno de Ocotal were the hosts. Calin and Silvia are excellent hosts and extremely caring people. If there was anything that you needed, Calin would make sure that you had it and always makes sure that you are well cared for and greeted upon arrival and departure. Silvia always had a ready smile for you. Would definitely recommend this villa. Only negative things were the isolation (easily resolved with a car) and the steep driveway but you wouldn't get the view unless you were located higher up the hills. Thanks again, Calin and Silvia. It was a pleasure to meet you both! I hope to see you again. Brenda

Response from the owner Thank you Brenda. We are glad that you enjoy your vacation in our villa. As you know we choose to offer our guest a tranquil and peaceful place, very close to the beach. It isn't to far from the noisy Coco village and as I did with you, I am happy to help my clients to take them there with my car or if I am busy, a taxi is only $6.We wait to have you here any time. you were a woanderful and perfect guest.

We used to spend our vacation in Costa Rica each year during last 10 years. This is why I will not be talking about the nature which is fantastic all over the country and the surrounding of the villa is absolutely beautiful part of it. I just have to say Villa El Sueno is really a dream (Spanish meaning of the word sueno) and that was our best experience in the history of vacation rentals within the 10 years. Calin and Silvia are very intelligent and kind people and they provide not only best quality services for their guests but also create a.n atmosphere of warm friendship. We will definitely advise this place as the best one for our friends and relatives

Response from the owner Thank you for your appreciation. You are also very special and fantastic people!

“a vacation in style, Pura Vida”

Reviewed 16 Dec 2014

Indeed, this is what it was for me, style " Pura Vida ". Tranquil, serene with a gorgeous, ever invigorating scenery and breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean. Simply put, a place to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of Pura Vida. And so I did for 3 weeks. Best vacation, away from all the hassle and buzz of work in the big cities. The host and hostess, Calin and Sylvia added so marvelously their personal touch of Welcome to Villa Sueno de Ocotal. They keep their villa clean, tidy and maintain its status to represent indeed their Dream of Ocotal. They were extremely accommodating and helpful in any and all aspects of finding and arranging sightseeing and eco adventure tours just on a moment’s notice. Waking up to the songs of the birds in the morning hours, listening to the Howler Monkey’s in the surrounding hills and at times, watching them even hanging in the trees close by, having Costa Rica coffee and enjoying “ pan dulce “ with a multitude of local, fresh fruits from nearby farms. Yes, it is in the midst of a mother nature’s paradise and so it feels. What else could one be asking for? Calin and Sylvia are looking well after their guests, all along. Definitely would want to come back again to their Villa Sueno de Ocotal joining and reaching out to Calin and Sylvia in Pura Vida style. Pura Vida. Just love it.

“A most memorable vacation”

Reviewed 9 Dec 2014

We stayed for two weeks at this jewel of a villa perched in the middle of a rain forest with probably the greatest view on the Gulf of Papagayo. Just minutes away from the Ocotal Beach, this property is absolutely gorgeous with its beautiful tropical garden, a great (very well tended) swimming pool and an absolutely romantic atmosphere. Our room was very clean and spacious and had all the amenities (but who wants to stay in the room when you have the great views just in front of your door!). You would be hard pressed to find a more charming and more hospitable host than Calin, the villa's' owner. Both the quality of the accommodation and the hospitality of the host have made this one of the most memorable vacations we have ever had. We would return tomorrow, if we had more vacation time! Once again, thank you, Calin for your hospitality and warmth.

Response from the owner Thank you very much! We love very much to be hosts and accommodate people of your quality. You are welcome always. Me casa su casa!

“Can't wait to go back!”

Reviewed 19 Mar 2013

My wife and I spent a month at the villa and had a truly memorable experience. Calin is an excellent host who does everything he can to accommodate your needs. From booking excursions, to recommending restaurants and things to do in Coco, he is a wealth of knowledge. Our apartment was quite comfortable and made a great base from which to explore or just relax. It is a very tranquil environment with fabulous wildlife right outside your door. Ocotal beach is a short walk away and is a great place to swim & snorkel. The weather was fabulous, 33c every day without a drop of rain...paradise!

“experience the costa rican expression " Pura Vida ", vividamente”

Reviewed 24 May 2012

That is the place to experience " Pura Vida ", vividly. What a wonderful getaway it was ! What a relaxing time we all had there. And what wonderful evening dinner arrangements Calin was able to arrange with his peruvian jefe de la cocina Frank, at the ' El Sueno '. Excellente, perfecto ! And above all, no worries about making arrangements for touring around, going sight seeing. It all was so well, perfectly and efficiently planned, instantaneously, right on the spot. That is the place to be and to come back to ! Thanks Calin. Tambien, tengo que expresarle mis apreciaciones por todas las experiencias tantas hermosas. Vívidamente e inolvidable me recuerdo de un desayuno mientras que los Howler Monkeys fueron en los árboles muy cercanos, masticando sus hojas. Que experiencia maravillosa, increible ! Asi es, verdaderamente, Pura Vida debo decir, vívidamente. Mil Gracias.

“Awesome Vacation Experience!”

Reviewed 22 May 2012

Wow! What a perfect place for us! We rented the Villa for 2 weeks with our family of 17, children and grandchildren. It was like home away from home. Calin was so very helpful, by setting up transportation for us and helping us with excursions and whatever we needed. The Villa was very clean and pleasant. He is a very pleasant and gracious host. The beach was a short walk away and was wonderful for snorkeling, fishing, lying on the beach, or swimming. Coco Beach is a short drive away and has all the shops you would want, grocery store, and wonderful restaurants. We especially enjoyed the seafood restaurants. We did do a bit of our own cooking as that worked very well for the younger children. We did quite a few excursions and enjoyed our stay very much. We love Costa Rica and will definitely be back.

“our home away from home”

Reviewed 22 May 2012

El Sueno de Ocotal is one of my favourite places to stay in Guanacaste. A true home away, Calin, your host is thrilled to have company and welcome you to his home. He is happy to help you with your vacation planning and is a wealth of information on the sights to see and services such as car rentals. And if your flight arrival coincides with one of Calin's trips to town you could be lucky enough to get a lift from the airport. The inn is large with a beautiful, pristine pool out front and accommodation to suit any traveler's needs; single rooms to an apartment and a 3 bedroom home. All rooms have large bathrooms with walk-in showers, TV and cable and air conditioning. There is an open air kitchen and even a BBQ along side the outdoor eating gazebo. The whole property is beautifully landscaped with flowering trees that attract birds. We have watched monkeys play in the trees and whales breach from our room. The views are amazing. The beach is a short walk away and the town of Coco is 5 minutes down the road by car. This place is a gem, I return every year as it has become my home away from home.

On a passé deux semaines exceptionnelles au bord de l'océan ou sur la piscine. Notre hôte Calin a été très attentif à toutes nos questions et a choisi très bien les activités pour toute la période (visite au volcan en Nicaragua, Rincon de la Vieja a Guanacaste, sortie avec le voilier, etc). 100% on va revenir !
