Good for a short stay if you're in that area
The bathroom looked really old and the furniture was pretty dated and slightly broken in places. Also there was a lot of dust and cobwebs in corners of the bathroom and bed frames. The rest of the room was clean, just not in depth... The pool was also not very clean and put me off swimming.
Beautiful property, quiet, lots of wildlife, lovely hosts.

There wasn't air conditioning. It was cool enough with the windows open but I had to close them in the morning as there was a dog that kept barking.
The receptionist was very sweet but didn't speak much english. The grounds were clean and very well kept. There was a nice pool that we didn't have time to use. Breakfast was included and cooked for us. It was simple and adequate.

Beautiful property with a nice pool, great hosts, nice rooms and a wonderful surrounding area. Very close to the airport so perfect for arrivals and/or departures.

Spacious,clean and welcoming
Nice and calmly situated 10 minutes outside of Grecia where you have bars,restaurants and all kind of shopping possibilities. Perfect for trips to Poas or La Paz Waterfall Gardens. The host has lots of advices for activities nearby and even for your next stop. Nice breakfast. Spacious rooms with a refrigerator. Very clean.

Very good but needs a little work
Details as listed in my main report.
A gorgeous retreat in a lovely garden setting. Spacious, comfortable and fairly well-equipped rooms. That said, there were some simple things that need correcting. Shampoo and a hair dryer should be provided [there was a hairdryer that could be borrowed]. There is a bedside lamp but nowhere near the bedside table that I could see to plug it in. There is nowhere to hang clothes. The hot and cold taps are reversed in the shower. There is nowhere to put soap in the shower. There are no shelves in the bathroom for toiletries. One of two downlights in the bathroom was not working. The main light has two out of three globes not working. Villas Escondidas is not cheap by Costa Rican standards and it is disappointing that they have failed to attend to these details. Offsetting these negatives, we had a lovely breakfast in an idyllic setting.

Lovely quaint place.
Staff were fun and friendly and very accommodating. Location was nice and secluded but not far from Grecia. Breakfast was great. Rooms were basic but very clean.

The proprietor’s were very friendly and helpful, giving us directions and places to visit. Quiet and private location and plenty of signs posted to find our way to the hotel. Very enjoyable place to stay.

Very nice room, very clean and lots of room. They family was amazingly helpful. The grounds are beautiful with a river running through it. We were also travelling with 2 small dogs and they were very welcome there!

Excellent place in a jungle near the airport to start or end your trip to Costa Rica!
As far as we were informed, not a lot of good food options nearby (except your usual fast food options)!

Comfortable stay in beautiful surroundings
Nothing. A great welcome to Costa Rica.
A series of high quality chalets (i.e. motel style) in the lovely grounds of a property owned by a couple (live on-site) from Guatamala. In Costa Rica 2 days and saw their resident toucans (you don't easily see a wild toucan in CR despite the tourist publicity). Breakfast is offered but I just had coffee and was given some tasty bananas to go with it. Enjoyed chatting with the owner. Very informative and interesting. I think you would need a car to stay here. It is not far from Grecia (where I had other meals) but I doubt that there is a bus because it is not on a main road.

We would recommend this place.
Located down a dirt road just far enough from the main road to make you feel like you are in a secret jungle! The grounds of this property are stunning, and you will hear a waterfall the entire length of your stay. The room was decorated with beautiful furnishings.

Love this place, beautiful, and the owners are fantastic!
The couple who run this Resort are incredible. And it's a traveler that's the most important thing. They care about the property and the experience you have there. Unfortunately, the GPS system I had wasn't working correctly but one of the owners was nice enough to actually drive to the town and leave me back to the property. Now that's actually caring about your guests!

The grounds are beautiful and the owners are fantastic. Even though the description said continental breakfast, we had a choice of being served a traditional Costa Rican breakfast which was wonderful.

The property is gated and when we first arrived at the property, I pressed the buzzer to open the gate. As I turned to get back in our car, the gate opened and the owners little white dog ran out through the gate and bit my leg. As long as they keep the dogs put away I’d stay there again.
We enjoyed our first night in Costa Rica at Villas Escondido’s. It was a great stopover on our way to Fortuna. The hosts were fantastic, breakfast was great and the coffee was amazing! The room was nice and clean.

Good value for the money
The only real negative is that they only open the gate to the property from 8AM to 10PM. In other words you gat to return to the hotel before 10PM or you can’t get in. This is a major inconvenience. It’s like having a curfew.
Beautifully appointed and large room. Beautiful gardens.

The owners are super nice. The property is gated and has beautiful landscaping with a walk to it's own waterfall.
