Family Vacations

Another Return!!!

By Family Vacations, Villa Cascada

Once again it was a great vacation thanks to you and your staff. Everyone was beyond happy and all expectations were surpassed as usual. Tom was so happy when he heard that you came through with the case of wine that he never stopped smiling. He wanted me to make sure I sent his thanks. Ronaldo and the staff are the best. You couldn’t ask for more. The drinks and the food were spot on like always. The renovations made the place even better, which I thought couldn’t happen. I mean how can you improve on perfection, well you did. The newly shaded deck area with the furnishings was a very popular hangout whereas before it wasn’t because of too much sun. Everyone can’t wait to come back. I am sure they will be telling their friends. There is nothing more I can say except AWESOME and I am speaking for each and every one.

Also I would like to say that we met your husband Jack. We talked for a while and he told me of what he was renovating at Ocotal and what else he was going to do at Cascada. He seemed to be a really nice hard working guy. Let him know that we all enjoyed our stay and to keep doing all that he does. He keeps the place in tip top shape. Not all places I go to can say that.



New Year’s Week Family Trip 2015-2016

I want you to know what a great time we had at your villa. I hope you learned it from the staff. They were terrific. It was the ideal place for our family. Everyone was free to do as much or as little as they wished. Having the wonderful food prepared for us every day was delicious and of course, the bar was fun even though we are not “bar” type people.
I would like to think that maybe we could return some day to a smaller villa perhaps.
Many thanks,

Gary & Lisa

I had to send you a note to let you know how amazing our stay was at your Villa,  We have been traveling every year for the last 10 years to a warm destination and your Villa is hands down our best vacation. Doris and Hermon went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of. My husband is still talking about how delicious the was food was. I think everyone wanted to take them both home with them.  We also enjoyed Freddy’s outgoing personality every morning. I apologize that I do not remember the maids name but she kept everything spotless.

Guillermo was very helpful and responsive with our questions. You are very lucky to have a group of individuals that put their heart and soul into making everyone’s week outstanding.  We will be telling everyone about this vacation.  In fact while my husband was diving on vacation he told a group of people about your villa and they were talking about renting next year for their trip.

Truly grateful,

We recently returned from our 3rd family outing to Villa Cascada in 5 years. Usually we try to stay for a minimum of two weeks; but, because of other guests booking before us, we were only to get the period May 30 to June 7, 2015.

One of the pleasant things about staying at Villa Cascada is the continuity of the staff. Pam Cox has always handled our bookings in a professional way, Guillermo is still at the Villa handling any item of concern or making arrangements for other activities such as Zip lining, Catamaran sailing, or other local trips. Reynaldo and Gabriel are the bartenders doing their utmost to ensure our happiness from early morning to often late at night. The cooks, Ms. Elba and Lidia have coffee ready for us early each morning before making our breakfast and then following up with lunch, snacks and dinner.

The cleaning staff still amazes us as they have found time to do everyone’s daily laundry, clean all the rooms, maintain the main level while cleaning up the water we constantly leave around as we exit the pool. Then there is Freddy, the smiling pool and groundskeeper who always has a kind word in greeting.

The hidden staff keeps the site in good repair and responds rapidly should a problem occur.

Finally, the roof extension over the patio and the new patio furniture has only made the site better

Thanks again for a wonderful time.

Wow! What an amazing time my husband and I had at the Villa Cascada!

We were guests for a friend’s wedding. We had 22 people in our party and were there for 5 nights. This villa is incredible! From start to finish everything was perfecto! The accommodations were very clean and comfortable. The food was amazing (we never went hungry). The bartenders and other staff were so friendly! Guillermo was so great and helped all of us book excursions. We really enjoyed getting to know Guillermo, as he is very open and shared many stories and valuable information about Costa Rica. Overall the property was really great for our group. We spent a ton of time in the pool, playing games and hanging out. This is such a perfect location for a big family/group, as you can really relax and everything is taken care of for you. Enjoy!!
