4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Nice Eco lodge, quiet and peaceful, in a rich nature area.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Beware, not your normal 3 star hotel in the forest
Disappointing, beautiful setting and wonderfully crafted property. Unfortunately it has very little to no services or facilities. Retreat or eco friendly properties should not use these badges as an excuse to compromise on the service side of the experience. Felt unwelcome right from the start after asking for a glass of wine. 24h notice required for dinning and very average food. Be warned, unless you are looking for a detox, a place to meditate and contemplate life you may be disappointed with what you find, as we were. Boutique niche market premise that makes the average person feel out of place.

5/5 Excellent

Traveled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The proprietor, Fateh, was kind, attentive and helpful. Our room was beautiful as were the surroundings. Fateh took care of arranging our tours and saw that we had breakfast every morning before heading out. We took advantage of a wonderful meal in the Villas restaurant, walked the grounds to see the waterfall, and took a yoga class from Fateh herself. The experience provided at Waterfall Villas was relaxing, nurturing and enjoyable. We loved it there!

Disliked: Room comfort
Great room but awful temperature. EXTREMELY HOT!!
The room we stayed in was extremely hot throughout the day and night. My wife and I could not sleep through the night. They have ceiling fans and another fan in the room however the Puntarenas heat is unbearable and the fans don’t do anything (just hot air). We asked for a room with ac but were going to charge 40$ more for the AC, which the room itself was already expensive.
