The best wedding week!

November 28, 2023

We booked the Villa for a small wedding with our closest friends and family. Everything about the Villa was absolutely perfect! Right from the start of the booking process Eugene was amazing to communicate with and answered any questions I had. Eugene and Sary were SO helpful the whole week, they helped with everything from booking transportation, telling us about local events we could go to, taking out cash for us and bringing us literally anything we needed or forgot to pack from home. The Hacienda Pinalla was so beautiful and we felt so safe the whole time. The Villa is well equipped for any sort of event and we had our wedding right on the Villa grounds which was so pretty. Everything you need is at the Villa – floaties, towels, ice makers, water etc. The maid was so sweet and nice and did a very good job. The chef Didiri was AMAZING!! The food was so good every meal and he was so kind and generous the whole time. All in all a perfect vacation at the perfect location!

Every one of the 8 bedrooms in this giant house has a sitting room with a sofa bed, giant bathrooms, and a nice porch or balcony. The house pool is lovely, even nicer than the photos show. The house has daily housekeeping AND a wonderful cook for 3 meals a day included in the cost of the house.

Great time!

We had a great stay! Everyone was happy with the house that had plenty of space for 18 of us. Kids loved the pool and beach club as well as private beach. Eugene and his wife were excellent house managers and very helpful. 2 ladies cooking the whole week were great and it was so convenient to have them do our meals which were delicious!

Superb few days at Villa Tranquila

May 22, 2023

Phenomenal time! We brought friends and family to Villa Tranquila, hoping for several days of relaxing times at the pool with some trips to the beach and local activities. Really could not have asked for a better stay.

The folks from Stay in Tamarindo were very helpful and accomodating. We were able to set up van rentals for our arrival, helped us with a few adventure trips during our stay, and just generally made sure everything was going well. Mariam was especially helpful. Eugene, Sary, and the rest of the kind people at Villa Tranquila went above and beyond to make this a memorable visit. The food was wonderful each and every day, the house was beautiful and clean throughout, and the kids had a lot of fun with the iguanas in the area.

The complex itself feels very safe, and the beaches are wonderful. All in all, a dream vacation.

Gorgeous Property -- Be sure to witness the Playa Langosta sunsets!

May 22, 2023

Our group of 15 had a wonderful stay, this past June, at Villa Tranquila. The pool area is relaxing but the private beach is a must. The waves were perfect for jumping and the sunset was magnificent every evening. The property managers go above and beyond to make sure your stay is perfect. I recommend taking advantage of the grocery service ahead of time. You’ll save time and money. I also recommend renting a couple of golf carts to get around the community. The meals that were prepared for us during our stay were amazing. The common areas of the home are great for visiting, playing cards, dancing, eating, etc. Each suite has its own balcony or patio, which is a beautiful touch. (Just make sure you unlock the door before going out! 😉 We loved the fact that we were close enough to the city to enjoy some shopping, but had the luxury of going back to our private retreat without any neighbors to disturb. Before our 4 night stay at Villa Tranquila, we stayed 4 nights near the Arenal Volcano. Both areas of Costa Rica are beautiful, but in very different ways. We wanted to give our family a taste of both. At this point, I believe, everyone is looking forward to returning. 🙂

Piece of Heaven

May 22, 2023

We really and truly enjoyed this vacation spot/home. I have written a review with some in-depth information that was too long for this site. I can email someone if they want or place it on another page.

Regardless this was HEAVEN for me and my friends. THANKS to Eugene, Sary, Miriam (sp), Miguel, and I two amazing ladies that helped us daily. I do not know how to spell their names. However, they felt like family to me.

We had an absolutely incredible stay with Stay in Tamarindo. Not only was the house amazing, but the service was also impeccable. Cristina went ABOVE AND BEYOND for us for months. Having such a large group, she worked with all of the vendors to make sure we were getting the best rates and service. We were extremely lucky to have her (and so are you!) Eugene at the house was an amazing host…I can’t say enough good things.
