Villas Alturas, Dominical, Costa Rica
Best place to stay in Costa Rica for us
I love this place. We stayed only 2 nights but out of the 4 places we stayed this is by far the best. Staff is amazing so kind and helpful. We were given villa #5 which has an ok view but saw Villa # 3 & 4 we open which has a much better view. We asked if we could move to #3 and it was no problem. Such an amazing view. Loved the patio. The air conditioning was only for the bedroom which was fine because we were never in the living room. Usually at the pool or on the patio if not out exploring. The food was good. Loved the atmosphere. If you want a view don't get Villa #6 Villa #8 has a great view and is right next to the pool. We will be back for a whole week next time for sure. Thank you all so very much!. The Sanctuary on the grounds was cute. A little expensive for the amount of animals to view but the guide made in entertaining. And the money does go to help the animals so... Oh and you will need a higher clearance vehicle to get up the road to the place.

Hilltop peaceful Oasis.
My gf and I stayed here. The villas are not 5 star accommodations, more like three, but the staff are so welcoming and wonderful that you are made to feel at home right away. My gf and I made dinner in villa 1 while we were here each night, and we basically had everything we needed. Any time we needed a pan or something, the staff was happy to lend it to us from the kitchen. The views from the hilltop location are pretty mind blowing. I’d love to go back.

Fully stacked stocked villa
The level of thoughtfulness by the hotel is on a new level with all the necessities in the villa such as trash bags, kitchen ware, and more. It also has amazing view and service from all the staff. The only negative is the WiFi was poor but you’re on to ditch the internet.

Great Views
Our stay was amazing. The property is beautiful. The hotel was clean, spacious, comfortable, and had every amenity we could need. The view from our room was spectacular. We spent a good amount of time during our stay on the hotel porch watching wildlife. Th staff was extremely helpful. The pool was in great condition and the food tasted wonderful. I highly recommend staying at Villas Alturas. The property also has a wildlife sanctuary which was another great experience and bonus. The photo I attached is the view from the porch.

Wow! This is paradise! The view of the ocean and the sounds of nature. We have seen so much wildlife from our villa, it's incredible. The room is quiet and private feeling. The staff had been wonderful and the food had been very good. I will definitely stay here again!
