This vacation was spectacular! Beyond expectations.  Costa Rica is beautiful, but the highlight was the beautiful villa and service. Fabian paid such attention to detail.  He would take care of anything we ask or needed.  Great drinks and creative.  Martina cooked her heart out! The food was amazing.  It was nice to leave the villa & not worry about meals.  Nuri was so sweet cleaning, washing clothes all with such a gracious smile. Oliver with Kojakc excursions were great! He listened to what we wanted to do and made it happen!  We did ATV’s, sloth sightseeing, waterfall, zip-lining and horseback riding on the beach.  They kept it to our group of 5 & it was so fun!

In summary, this vacation was fantastic for all of us.  The service went above our expectations.  Of course, the view is amazing and the villa so well appointed. Pura Vida! We had an amazing trip!

Here comes another raving review!!  One of the best vacations we have ever experienced. This was one of the first vacations where we all relaxed the moment we passed through the front door and stayed that way until we left.  The staff was phenomenal. Fabian, Martina and Nury cared for our every want and need.  We are already planning our next trip to stay at the exact location. So luxurious.!

This is by far the best vacation we have been on.  We came with 3 couples and had such an amazing time.  The villa was more than we have hoped for, the staff far exceeded our expectations.  Fabian took care of everything.  Martina made every meal special and was so delicious. Nury took care of all our needs without us asking and the villa was beautiful everyday.  Kojakc arranged everything for us without ever leaving the villa.  The staff, villa, and everything was 10 stars if I could give it.  We will be back for sure!  Thank you! Pura Vida!

By far one of the best family vacations, we could of had. The home was beautiful, and the views are something out of a dream.  We really wanted a place to come and relax and unwind. We couldn’t have found a better place than Puerto Escondido.

Fabian was so attentive making sure we had everything we needed. We were greeted with the most delicious drinks by him. He was always making us anything we wanted throughout the day.

Martina was the best cook. Every meal got better and better. We did not want to go out to eat because we knew we wouldn’t get anything better.  From the fresh fruit & juice to all of the delicious fresh food for all 3 meals.

It was 5 stars.  Nury always kept the house so clean, and our bedrooms were just like new every night. She pressed some clothes for and made sure our laundry was cleaned daily.

We felt very spoiled this week and will be back soon and recommending to all of our friends and family.

This trip was truly exceeded our expectations! The view was breathtaking and truly something I will never forget.  The villa is so comfortable, the pool is amazing but most importantly the 3 wonderful people that took care of us during our stay.   Martina’s food was delicious! Our favorite were the tacos, the porkchop and the guacamole.  Fabian was so kind and helpful.  Nury was so sweet and worked so hard.  Always has a smile on her face!

Oliver & Kojakc took great care of us and made us feel so welcome!

We are counting the day days until we can visit beautiful Costa Rica again! Thank you for this once in a lifetime vacation!

Villa Puerto Escondido is spectacular! Thank you for sharing your amazing home with our family.

This was an incredible vacation! The staff-Fabian, Martina & Nury were exceptional. We especially enjoyed the spa treatments at the villa, the boat cruise & beach BBQ and the waterfall tour!  Tonight’s last dinner was better than any restaurant!  We can’t wait to come back!

This trip by far exceeded our expectations. The villa is so comfortable and we loved the amazing view!  The pool and the shaded part of the porch was so inviting.  Kojakc helped plan the rainforest and jungle tours plus transportation. We also did a large catamaran with a very large group. So much fun. Flamingo Beach was our favorite highlight of all!  We loved Fabian’s attention to detail He made the best drinks for us all & drove us around.  Martina’s meals were fabulous. Our favorites were tacos, quesadillas’, nachos, soups and the best desserts-flam, chocolate cake & crepes.  Nury was so kind and cheery. We loved her energy. Her hard work was so appreciated. To wrap it up, it was a top favorite vacation for our family. We hope to be back! Pura Vida!

Everything about this trip was amazing! The staff was very friendly and catered to all of our needs. The kids especially loved the strawberry, mango and kiwi drinks by the pool.  Kojakc and his team were great @ setting up excursions. We loved the sailboat ride & beach BBQ. We also had fun at the waterfall and sloth viewing. The weather was great and had fun in the pool and at the beach.  We definitely would come back!
