We were in for 5 nights at Villa Riviera. We arrived late in the evening and Robert was still in his office waiting for us to get there. He even drove us over to where the Villa was located. When we arrived, he made sure we were comfortable enough. The Villa is very well maintained and in a very good shape. It has A/C all throughout the house which was very important for us, as well as a fully equipped kitchen. The pool was literally steps way from our front door. The beach was less than 5 minutes away. The Condo is conveniently located, close enough but not in the very middle of Coco center, so you are not exposed to the busy streets and lifestyle. All in all it was a very pleasant experience staying in one of Robert's houses and I would not hesitate to reach out to him again in the future.
The rooms Robert offers are fair for the price. The only issues I had with the rooms are that the upstairs shower dribbled and didn't get hot (basically unusable) and the WIFI didn't actually work in the condo but did work once you stepped outside. That being said, his service is atrocious. Robert is very difficult to reach, especially by phone. In a country where phones don't always work it would have been nice if he had actually monitored his.
I was supposed to start my stay on a Friday and was running late. I called Robert multiple times to let him know I had to check in late because traveling by Bus in Costa Rica can take much longer than expected. I arrived at 8:30 PM to find my room locked, no way to get in and robert didnt answer my calls and emails until 1 in the morning and didnt give me the key until 1:30 AM; thus, I had to beg to sleep in a neighbors condo like a Jackass. Robert refused to give me any compensation for me not being able to get into the room that night. Also, FYI; Robert goes to sleep at 8PM, so if you have any issue with your room after that you are screwed. I strongly recommend staying elsewhere, he has no idea how to run a business.
All of our condominiums are priced fairly . I personally checked the shower after this complaint and showers have diverter valves that control the flow of wáter , simply turn valve up and the shower works fine . We do supply wi fi and if guests need a private connection this must be addressed in advance . We monitor several phones incuding my personal cell phone and answer emails with a 100 % response rate within a few hours according to AIRBNB , who keeps track of these statistics .professionally and unbiased .
Scott was running very late and had not notified us of a late check in .We accommodate guests with late check ins all the time and sleep in our office until they arrive if after 9 pm .
Buses do take between 5 and 6 hours from San Jose to Playas del Coco and proper planning would have resulted in a much more pleasant arrival here .
Scotts contact with me at 930 Costa Rica time did not get noticed until 1 am in the morning because I do rest from 9PM until 1 am . I sleep 4 hours daily .
After Scott emailed me I promptly left my house in Hermosa Beach and opened the condo and waited for him , he said that this took an hour and was exagerating then as he is now .I made it there in 15 minutes .
I did offer a free nights compensation to Scott . I manage these condos and when a guest checks in and uses a condominium , owners expect compensation even if a guests has scheduling problems .
We also discovered problems with the condominium after Scotts stay and he is not welcome to stay with us again .We have never kept a security deposit but in this case we did not but should have .

About the Host, Robert
I live in Costa Rica and like to visit other hosts in different countries . I meet with my family who take cruise ships to large ports . When my family arrives at any port I will be contacting other Airbnb hosts to enjoy your area a day or two ..
I love watching wildlife , everything from birds to seals , to whales and otters .
I travel the world to see the earth's
beautiful scenery and uninhabited areas . My favorite place in Costa Rica is Drakes Bay . Sir Francis Drake said Florida is the fountain of youth but Drake's Bay is the pearl of the world .
I enjoy hosting guests and introducing them to the fun things to do here in Costa Rica .
