What a fabulous trip. The villa was super clean and inviting. Our chef was a 10, amazing, top-notch and we ate like kings and queens. And Oscar, what a gentleman. Service was anything and everything we desired. We all have a new friend!

Our tour guides… sooo friendly, helpful, patient, informative…THE BEST!

This amazing beauty of this villa and the view were surpassed only by the wonderful staff, Oscar, Julia and Antonia. Kojack arranged our excursions to explore the area surrounding us and Yeremy, our guide, made each outing special and easy. I can’t say enough good things about our stay at Villa Del Mar!!

Heard multiple times from our group—BEST VACATION EVER! Good friends celebrating 3 couple’s 30th wedding anniversaries. We all had a wonderful week with amazing views, food and services!

Far exceeded our expectations! Thank you Julia, Oscar & Antonia! Kojakc added the excitement with the river rafting, zip lining, canoe and volcano tours!

Julia was an awesome cook, accommodating everyone smiling, happy never a bad meal! Oscar, our favorite, made the best bloody mary and pina coladas. Oh and the margaritas were to die for! Antonia kept the house beautiful and spotless. We had the best tours from Kojack. This was the best time we could have ever hoped for and plan to return for another great time soon!

This is our first trip to Costa Rica and it has been amazing. The Villa is great and staff is wonderful! You couldn’t ask for better food than what Julia cooked. It is amazing! We also took some great trips with Kojack that gave us a great local experience of Costa Rica. This is definitely one place we would come back to!

Wonderful time was had by all. We’ve gained about 20lbs – the food and drinks were over the top! Loved all the staff and count not have been happier with our experience. Hope to come back someday to enjoy the million dollar view.

Yes, it was absolutely fabulous. We enjoyed it immensely. Everything was wonderful. We loved Oscar and Julia. Food and drinks were perfect. All of our excursions were perfect and we thank Kojack for all his assistance. I have already told a few friends that it is a must so you may be getting more bookings from Jackson! We are so glad we had the conversations at that night!! Great memories for all the family!


I wanted to let you know what a GREAT time we had at Villa Del Mar. The villa is beautiful, the view is incredible, the meals spectacular, but what really makes it is the awesome staff. The meals were plentiful and delicious. I’m convinced Julia could cook an old shoe and we would enjoy it. Douglas had a drink ready every time we turned around. They really are great, hard working and personable.

We tool advantage of Kojack’s various excursions and enjoyed them all, whether it was deep sea fishing, zip lining, volcanic mud baths or sailing. He made it really easy and took care of everything, drivers, guides, lunches, etc. All we had to do was be ready to go at the appointed time.

Our family had a great time. As we were leaving our three girls all said it was the best trip our family had ever taken. Something tells me we will be back again.


My first time in Costa Rica and I was very impressed. Oscar, Julia, Antonio, Ariel, and Kojack were amazing and very welcoming. The house is absolutely stunning, as well as the view and I am very grateful for the wonderful food and service.


What a wonderful time we have had here at your beautiful villa. We have made wonderful memories, spent time relaxing (which our family greatly needed) and were introduced to some great people. We will take a part of your staff home with us. They will hold a special place in our hearts. They have worked very hard to make our stay pleasurable. From the great food, to clean laundry, to cocktails by the pool. GRACIAS! Oh yeah! Let’s not forget Leslie. He made our stay here come together. The driving was always adventurous. What a nice guy. He seems to be a hard worker and always wanting to do the right thing. Thank you very much!

The beauty of a country not only comes from its beaches, forests and mountains, but more importantly it comes from its people. At Villa Del Mar you will experience the best of Costa Rica.

Thank you for the memories!

We had a great experience in Villa Del Mar. Everything happened like I was told. The villa is amazing, clean and with great staff. Julia, the cook, is outstanding. Oscar made us great drinks and is very helpful. We will definitely recommend this place!


We had a fabulous time! Loved every minute of it & could have easily stayed longer! Thank you, your house & staff were awesome! Hope y’all had a blessed Christmas.


What a beautiful place! The view, the amenities, the food, the guide! If you want to experience Costa Rica, do not waste your money on a resort! From the time we were picked up from the airport by our personal driver until we left, the trip was way more than we ever expected. We had an exceptional cook, bartender, concierge and guide. They all attended to each of our interests and needs and they all were a phenomenal host. There were adventure tours that we enjoyed immensely. But the days that we will remember most are those spent at the lovely villa just enjoying each other’s company and the beautiful view.

We are a group of 10 friends from Florida and this is our second visit! Julia, Garrard and Antonia are amazing and so accommodating! We were thankful to have them. We visited 4 years ago and just had to come back. What a blessing! We fished 4 days and caught snapper, tuna, bonita and sailfish. White water rafting and waterfall visits were great. We enjoyed our time! We love Julia, Garrard &  Antonia- they were angels!

Doug & Karen

It was our 50th anniversary and a better place could not have been found to celebrate it at! Oscar, Julia and Antonia provided everything we needed. The meals by Julia were 5 STAR! The drinks by Oscar– what can we say…Martini, Mojitos, Pina Colada, Oh my! Hurricane Otto came and went the before our arrival. Perfect timing. We will recommend to friends for unbelievable views and friendly people.

The Murray Family & Friends

This was my first time in Costa Rica. Oscar, Julia and Antonia made this vacation paradise. Oscar made the BEST drinks and the meals were absolutely amazing. The villas was will kept and spotless. When we went out on tours we were welcome aback at the villa with fresh chips, guacamole and pico del gallo. The staff was perfect. This trip was amazing!


Hope to come back someday to this LOVELY Villa and AWESOME Staff! The morning walks were one of my favorite things. Met new friends – saw new things! Thank you for the wonderful memories!

Eric & Ricky

Well, not sure where to begin…to say we had a blast on our trip would be the understatement of the year! What a majestic place; both the house and the country! Everything from the views, the food, the beds, the people…we canopy’d, fished, rafted, surfed, hiked, ate, drank Imperial, PURA VIDA!!!! Kojack was great, and the staff of Eddy, Soccoro, and Lina were all great. We spent a lot of time with McKenzy as well…what a great guy… Thanks again for being so helpful…we will def. be back to Playa de Coco again!
