“Magnificient Villa with great amenities, but one problem”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2015

Mar-a-villa is a gorgeous villa with a spectacular view, a great infinity pool, and awesome living and entertaining space that includes a pool table. Six adults and 5 children spent a wonderful week's vacation in Costa Rica, having plenty of activities besides enjoying down time just relaxing. The view from the verandas and the infinity pool is beyong description as are the awesome sunsets. We encountered one problem at the villa. The conceirge staff stocked our kitchen and refrigerator with groceries prior to our arrival. They did a very good job. However, the maid assigned to our villa on a daily basis stole some of our food. it was very upsetting. The concierge staff rectified this by restocking our food and changing the maid responsible for cleaning the villa. One other small problem was that the floor of the veranda with the infinty pool was very slippery and a couple of us fell as a result. Those are the only reasons I cannot give this review 5 stars. Finally, the staff in the U.S. was great in setting us up with a driver and van for the week and helping us plan our excursions and chef for dinner nightly.

“A spectacular vacation”

Reviewed 14 Jan 2014

Our vacation to Costa Rica was made special, indeed spectacular, thanks to the efforts of the people at Costa Rica Star Villas. Mar-a-Villa was luxurious, and provided our group of ten not only a wonderful "home away from home" but only a convenient base from which we could take advantage of all that Costa Rica has to offer - from scuba diving to deep sea fishing to zip-lining to river rafting and beyond. Costa Rica Star Villas provided us our own private concierge, driver, maid and chef - all of whom worked very hard to make us comfortable and all of whom contributed to our outstanding experience in Costa Rica.

“Mara-a-Villa is Pure Luxury!!!”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2013

The Mara-a-Villa was simply spectacular! It was one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. The view was unparalleled as well. We were a party of eleven and there was more than enough room for everyone. The rooms were beautifully decorated and matched that of a five star resort. There was nothing more relaxing than coming "home" after a day of adventure and relaxing out by that incredible infinity pool. Star Villas provided the Mara-a-Villa with the best staff. Robyn was just wonderful to work with. She organized our entire trip for us. We could not have done it without her. I truly appreciate how she answered my numerous questions with genuine kindness and alleviated all of our traveling concerns. Adriana, who lives on property, was an excellent concierge. She went above and beyond in attending to our needs and requests. Blair was a great driver and a very fun companion. Housekeeping, which remained in house for hours, kept the 8,000 square feet of living area in tip, top shape. The catering service from Rocio's Kitchen was also outstanding. The meals were delicious and the ladies serving the meals were a delight. Regarding activities, the sailboat and snorkeling trip on The Seabird was so much fun. Sebastian and his crew were excellent hosts and kept us entertained for hours. I highly recommend it for others. The zip lining and water tubing trip to Guachipelin was a blast. We all had a great time! The fishing excursion on the Brindisi was also a great adventure. We caught several sailfish and a few other fish and it will remain a memorable fishing trip. Overall, this vacation experience actually exceeded our expectations. We couldn't have asked for a more professional, conscientious, and quality service. We will not hesitate to book again with Star Villas and once again stay at Mara-a-Villa when we return to Costa Rica. Pura Vida!

“Breathtaking Luxury”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2013

I just returned from 6 nights in Playa Hermosa with my husband and kids (21, 17, 15, 12) after spending several days in the arenal rainforest. Everything about Mar-a-Villa and Costa Rica Star Villas was spectacular! The villa is great for families and/or couples groups. Everyone who works for Star Villas is professional, friendly and accommodating. Adriana, Marisol, Blair, Jeffrey, Sandy, Soledad and Robyn were all great to work with; from booking to maintaining the residence, driving to concierge services & meal prep. The villa is large and luxurious. 5 large bedrooms with large bathrooms and balconies to enjoy the beautiful view. Somehow, it also feels like home. The view is amazing! When you walk through the front door, you feel like you have stepped into your own personal paradise! Marble floors, high ceilings with wooden inlays, huge terrace and infinity pool. The sports bar area was great with the pool table and the big screen TV while listening to our ipods piped throughout the house. It's better than a 5 star hotel! The local beach is big enough with a restaurant, (small hotel and bar down the beach) and amenities like chairs, bathrooms and jet ski and banana boat, sunset cruise rentals are also readily available there. Surfing in Tamarindo twice, full day fishing trip, manicures and chef prepared meals at the villa. (all booked through Costa Rica Star Villas). The kids rented jet skis and we soaked in the warm waters off the beach. You could be as busy or as relaxed as you wanted. Our drivers were wonderful and Blair took us to Father Rooster's a great restaurant about 15 minutes from the villa with great drinks, atmosphere and food. There is shopping in Coco about 10 minutes away and a small supermarket at the bottom of the hill from the villa. We even had pizza delivered one night! The whole experience was wonderful and I would highly recommend Costa Rica Star Villas and most definitely Mar-a-Villa. We are hoping to return soon.

“There is a heaven (and a piece of it can be experienced in Costa”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2013

Our family had a wonderful time in Costa Rica with lovely people taking care of us. That house was spectacular and accommodated our needs beautifully. The day at Buena Lodge with Henry was a highlight but each day out was really unique and special. We loved avellanes beach--the waves were unbelievable, over and over. Bler (sp?) was the best driver any family could ever have. He is so upbeat and patient and we loved him. My only recommendation would be that you suggest people wait to stock drinks, etc until they arrive. Specifically, we really overspent on soft drinks. With a car, there was no need to supply for the whole week at once. We were out daily and could have saved money. Thank you for your kind attention to our requests.

“Beautiful!”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2013

We recently had a group of 9 stay here, with 4 adults and 5 kids ages 15-20. More than enough room and plenty of comfort. The entire Costa Rica Star Villas experience was simple, with Robyn doing a great job of getting the excursions set up, and Blair the Driver doing a great job and becoming a family friend. Great overall experience.

“This was a fabulous family vacation entertaining all ages.”

Reviewed 14 Jun 2013

We rented Mar-a-villa for our family over spring break 2013, consisting of grandparents, parents and children (3 couples and 4 children (ages 11, 8, 5, and 4 mos)). This was our first trip to Costa Rica, and we wanted to do it all, packed into one week. We could not have managed without the wonderful service we received, in planning our daily trips, arranging bus and driver, and guides. Everything was top quality, and after long days we would return to this gorgeous, spacious villa with plenty of room and space for everyone. The pictures of Mar-a-villa do not do it justice, it is absolutely fabulous. Our 8 year old grandson said, "OMG Gannie this is like a hotel in paradise!" And it truly was. We highly recommend the property, and the property management company, for advising us throughout. We had access to beaches, zip rides, horse back riding, river cruise, and even did an all day trip up to the cloud forest in Monteverde. That was truly a must, not to be missed experience. We highly recommend this location for a large family.

“Fortieth anniversary Family Fantasy”

Reviewed 29 Apr 2013

From the second we entered this amazing property we were overwhelmed with the unbelievable views inside and out!!! This home is indescribably beautiful and impressively appointed in every way and it's setting overlooking Papagayo Bay makes it impossible to take one's eyes off the gorgeous views from every room in the villa. The sunsets over the infinity pool into the ocean looked like molten lava entering the bay every single night. Our daughter, the chef woman, could not believe the culinary excellence of the kitchen. Adriana and Marisol were gifts and became our best friends during our stay. Several days of our trip we walked or jogged from the villa down to the beautiful beach and back, and the hill up to the house made for a good workout, but was not too difficult or too hot in the mornings. The proximity from the villa to our excursions, Palo Verde, Heleconia Suspension treetop bridges and the adventure Borinquen day, were . anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and a half away, but it was great to see the different parts of the country on the way. We also did a half day fishing trip from Playa del Coco and a two hour jet ski rental from Playa Hermosa. Both were deluxe!! Our final day was having massage therapists and manicurists come to do couple's massages and mani/ pedis right at the villa, a very special treat for all... We found the prices including Mar-a-Villa itself less than other resort areas, but the activities were considerably less than we've paid elsewhere. This incredible villa, however, was beyond any expectation we could have imagined!!! It was impressive grandeur and cozy comfort all in one. The pictures online certainly were enticing and made us anticipate with excitement the event, but the reality made us never want to leave. We will certainly be back!!!
