Diane's villa is outstanding and comes at a great value! The pictures really don't capture how cozy and nice her place is, as well as the overall beauty of the entire resort property. We were a group of four ladies celebrating a double birthday and this was the perfect location to relax and have fun. We felt safe the entire time.
This is what I loved about the villa: the architecture, the variety of kitchen utensils, Wi-Fi that worked the entire time, air-conditioning in all rooms and shared space, the beautiful tropical view with lots of colorful birds, the comfortable beds, the cleanliness, the hot showers, the amount of shower and beach towels and the overall privacy. The cool plunge pool was a delicious luxury at the end of an adventurous day. Although the villa is located in a resort, we didn´t feel the need to use its amenities, but the resort is also beautiful and the staff is super friendly.
As a hostess, Diane was excellent from the start providing clear, direct and accurate information in a very friendly manner.
Playa Hermosa is just a 5 minute walk away and also a million times more beautiful than all of the pictures I saw.
We didn´t rent a car and we really didn´t need it. Although the villa is in quiet area, it´s just a 15-minute walk from the grocery story and less than 10 minutes from nice restaurants by the ocean. Coco Beach (where you can find a more vibrant nightlife/social scene) is only a 15 minute cab drive from the villa. We went on a few private tours of the regions and our tour guides picked us up at the resort.
I will recommend Diane's villa to all of my friends and wouldn´t even blink about returning to it on another vacation. It was fabulous!
