Condovac La Costa was a beautiful resort on the slopes leading to the beach in Costa Rica. The views were amazing and the staff were one of the most helpful and friendly we have encountered in or travels.The resort was a little bit older but well maintained and we and an excellent view of the ocean while sitting on our front porch. A shuttle bus/truck was provided for moving around the resort since it was on a fairly steep hillside. The resort has a beachfront with an infinity pool, open air dinning, and other activities, almost all with amazing views.
Since we were there for our wedding, you could not beat the sunset on the beach that Costa Rica provided. Ms. Lourdes Madrigal from the resort started to work with us before our arrival, during or stay and was at the ceremony, making sure everything was there and ready. Her work and the staff provided a most romantic wedding and wonderful dinner on the beach. Even the Housekeeping staff became involved by having bath towel swans and rose pedals on our bed for our return to the room. Everyone at the resort were sure to congratulate us.
Mardigi Tours, which has a desk in the lobby, provided great tours in the area and transportation to and from the airport. Ms Diana Gallo was most helpful in arranging all our tours and transportation. Special notice to Melvin and his diver Andre', for one of the most informative and interesting tours we have had.
Can not say enough about the experience we had in Costa Rica and the wonderful people at Condavac La Costa.

Room Tip: Ask to see the room to check view and ask for options

This is an ok place. It is not the best, but not the worst. Everyone was extremely nice. The shuttle takes you all over the property, the beach is right there. The ∞ pool was incredible. The food in restaurant was ok. Prices were not too cheap. There were monkeys in the trees, iguanas, raccoons, cats, dogs. The absolute worst was there was a roach infestation in our room. I told them twice and bought bug spray and sprayed myself. Didnt help. All in all, was ok. If you need a tour, go through Henry or Herson at herson03@yahoo.com. He is cheaper than the facility.

We chose Condovac because of RCI. After reading the reviews, we were prepared to be in a remote location on a hill. This is true. However, we found the views, pools, food, and especially the wonderful staff to make it worthwhile.

It is a steep walk to get to the beach and/or the pools. Even in 90 degree heat, we insisted on walking to counteract the great food. We did see the shuttle running constantly, so I don't think folks had to wait a long time if they wanted a ride.

The howler monkeys and iguanas kept the kids entertained most days. There is a trail above the hotel, called the Monkey Trail, but it seems fairly abandoned. Still a nice adventurous way to get to the beach, but start early to avoid the heat.

The infinity pool overlooking the ocean is fabulous. We sat and looked at the view for hours. Thankfully, I have a waterproof case for my iPad, as this is also where the best wifi signal happens to be. It comes and goes in the condos, but that didn't really matter too much.

The walk to the grocery store is about 20 minutes, and it is hot. We found a more shady route leaving from the private entrance just above the beach. As has been mentioned, the taxis all come from Playa Coco, so it is $20 no matter where you go. We opted to walk.

The condo has a nice kitchen stocked with most of the necessities. Mixing bowls and something for leftovers would have been nice, but we made it work.

All in all, we had a great time. The beach is beautiful and there are nice little seafood restaurants all along it. The perfect place to get away from it all.

My friends and I stayed at Condovac La Costa in March. The staff was friendly and helpful. The units were clean. The property was steep but there was a cart that picked people up and transported them to pool, beach etc. The endless pool was beautiful. Both the pool and beach were great for sunset photos. My only complaint was that there was no comfortable place inside the condo to sit. An adequate kitchen but no living room per se. Very quiet location.

Thank DEBRA S
