We are a family of 4 from UK and stayed for 10 days - with two children 19 and 16. The property was ideal for us, my wife and I stayed in the lower part (en-suite) and our kids in a room (shared en-suite) each next to the kitchen on the upper floor with large terrace area (which effectively functions as an outdoor lounge). Initially we thought we might miss the lack of communal indoor space but being outdoors was great in the evening. We were out a lot anyway. The villa was incredibly clean and well stocked with towels etc and the kitchen was well equipped to cook regularly if you wanted to. We went out a bit as Ojochal has some great places to eat. The hotel staff were very helpful and a short one minute walk to the pool was great. We did go in the sea a lot though! Playa Ventanas was our favourite nearby but there are many others and brilliant waterfalls, even the small one in Ojochal. Sebastien couldn't have been more helpful in the run up to the booking, very friendly, efficient and great at communication, so many thanks to him. The area is so incredibly beautiful we were sad to leave and I would heartily recommend both this villa and the area and people to anybody who wants a first taste of life in Costa Rica. One last thing, we went in the Green season (or wet season) - the best time we think. Beaches are quiet, cafes and restaurants are mostly still open, very few tourists and it the greenery is stunning at this time. Plus water in the waterfalls! Don't worry about the rain, it comes and goes and you still get plenty of sun in the morning and sometimes it doesn't rain at all. You can still go in the sea as its still 28-20 degrees!
