8/10 Very good

Great view!! Rooms are simple, but the AC blows cold. No breakfast service but there is a kitchenette with a coffee maker etc. Need to remember to bring your own. No ice maker but there is a fridge/freezer with a 10 cube tray. Good location though parking is a little tight and located on a steep hill and sharp curve. Stairs are a little difficult to navigate with luggage and rain.

Well-eqipped kitchenette (hob, oven, coffee maker, microwave). Saw more wildlife from our balcony than we saw in the national park! Downsides were no toiletries or hairdryer. It is perched on the side of a very steep hill. We are quite fit but struggled.

If you're seeking wildlife this is your place.
If you're going to Costa Rica to see wildlife and great ocean views then Villas de la Selva is your place. We spent a half hour in the pool just watching the capuchin monkeys playing and climbing around the buildings. And a two toed sloth was sleeping in one of the trees on the property and we got to see it climb around at night. Also the iguanas were just hanging out in the grass and agoutis would cruise through looking for insects. And we could often hear the howler monkeys howling in a nearby tree.

2/10 Poor

FALSE advertising. The property offered a comfort room with a King size Bed and a Twin size. When we arrived, not only was the room being repaired, but it had a Double bed and a fold out cushion-couch. When we asked to have a room as listed - we were offered a room with another Double bed and a Twin. When we pointed out that this was not what was advertised, and after calling Expedia for assistance - the owner offered to “upgrade” us to a larger room with 2 double beds - but only if we paid an additional $15/night. She then proceeded to get into a verbal argument when we said that this was not acceptable, and we asked her to refund the amount. She refused - and after having Expedia call her a Second Time, she Still refused to provide 1) what she advertised and 2) a refund. At this point, we did not feel safe staying there (she was very irate and downright disrespectful). We ended up going to a different property altogether, and had to open a dispute on the credit card charge for services Never Rendered. We posted a review on Google as well - turns out we aren’t the only people who have had an unpleasant experience with the owner!
