We stopped over just for two nights before meeting family to head up to Arenal. While we stayed in a small but adequate room we were invited for drinks in two apartments that were really lovely and we wished we could book there for a longer period. Our hosts were very accommodating, the pools were a delight, the views were breathtaking and the convivial atmosphere among the guests would make this a great place to park yourself for an extended stay.
Villas Casa Loma feels like a second home. In the past several years I have vacationed in Argentina, Ireland, Maui, St. Thomas, and Catalina Island, CA. During that time I have returned to Villas Casa Loma 4 times.
The live-in owners make the place feel like home. The accommodations, landscaping, and swimming pools are extremely well maintained.
If you have not been to Villas Casa Loma, you are missing a genuine Costa Rica experience.
I have stayed in various rooms and suites at Villas Casa Loma over the past several winters. Igor and Tom, the owner-managers, are always welcoming and accommodating, as are their staff, who themselves are on board year after year, always a good sign. The lush grounds are maintained like a nature preserve; and the two pools are in spectacular locations, allowing views of the Pacific, as do most spots on the hillside grounds. Free parking is available, and beautiful beaches, stores, yoga, and restaurants are within easy reach.
After many visits to Villas Casa Loma, I continue to love the location and the quiet comfort afforded by hosts Tom and Igor. They are always available with insightful suggestions for great restaurants, arranging sightseeing trips and generally adding that extra "spice" to my holiday experiences!
Once again I chose a simple, comfortable private double bedroom with ensuite bath. The views of the morning sun over the marina area and spectacular sunsets are more than justification for choosing this tranquil spot! Add to that the convenience of being able to make my own coffee in the morning and keep a few a few snacks in the bar fridge was an added plus.I love the quiet, the views, the gardens and the pool, too! All told, a "perfect holiday retreat". Thanks to Villas Casa Loma I have met many new friends in the area and will definitely be back again! I highly recommend Villas Casa Loma's friendly atmosphere and relaxing ambience! See you again soon.
Villas Casa Loma was pretty much ideal. Igor and Tom were extremely kind, welcoming, and helpful; I particularly appreciated Igor's willingness to share his vast and deep understanding of Costa Rica itself. The rooms were spacious, airy and comfortable; the two pools were sparkling clean and often we had one of them to ourselves. We loved being here and hope to come back for a longer stay.
