Read what some of our past guests have said about their stay at Villa Cortes.

I just spent the week at your property for a Retreat with Judith and Heather. Your accommodations were perfect. I stayed in the “tree house” and LOVED it there. The grounds, lodging, pool, food…everything was perfect. Alex and Claudia were amazing hosts to us…perfect service. I would love to have the recipe for the spinach patties and possibly some of the rice and bean dishes as well. Truly a week I will not forget. It has left a footprint on my heart and soul. Beautiful people and a beautiful location. Thank you…thank you…thank you.

Villa Cortes was simply a break from the ordinary and a breath of fresh air. I felt transported to a microcosm that combines the essence of a resort and a family homestead — the cleanliness of all the buildings on the property, the tropical plant-life, the birds and monkeys amongst the trees, the infinity pool, and the charming restaurants within walking distance were all highlights for me.

I could never fully describe the comfort and luxury we experienced in this beautiful place while at the same time waking up in the morning to the howling of monkeys and the call of tropical birds. Villa Cortes is truly a tropical paradise. Something that few people have the privilege of experiencing during the brief time they have while passing through this world.

Once you go through the gate it’s like walking into another world…lush and beautiful and inviting.

We got away from a hectic busy life and lived the dream of hiding away in a tropical paradise. How fortunate to experience the ultimate getaway in PRIVATE, luxurious surroundings. Thank you, creators of VILLA CORTES. It was the perfect vacation.

My stay at Villa Cortes was the perfect balance of luxury, simplicity and indulgence. A wonderful retreat from the bustle of busy life…I can’t think of a more beautiful place to escape for a week!

This is my second trip to Nosara and it never disappoints. I stayed in Casa Cortes the first time. I loved it here so much I came back and stayed in Casa Arriba. I’ve never slept so well and for so long. This is a true get away. You really leave the world behind.

— David Betts, London, England

unlike many people, I came to Costa Rica to focus on my work. Casa Arriba was like a treehouse where I dreamt and thought without interruption. playing in the pool and walking to the beach were my only diversions, but they were transcendant. thank you for this glorious getaway!
