I'm going to break down my review in pros and cons.
First is pros:
The place is beautiful, its a little bit outside coco and its nice and quiet around here and close to Ocotal beach (about 10 min walk). There is also a gym near by and its about a 7 min walk.
The pools are great also, and the neighbours were friendly.
Ok, here are the cons:
We got put into a different unit then we original paid for and requested. When we arrived to the airport from about a 14 hour trip, Robert was just on his cell phone not really caring that we're exhausted and just want to get to our unit, so that wasn't the most pleasant start. Basically Robert will escort you to the unit but after that you're on your own, I tried to contact Robert few times and there was very little or no response. But good thing there's a great property manager here who speaks english.
I also requested to have wifi installed in the unit 1 month before our arrival, and of course when we got there the wifi didn't work .. took about 6 days to get someone in there to fix it - that was very frustrating considering I asked 4 weeks prior to our arrival.
Last thing, if you're staying at this place I suggest to have a walk through first. When we left the unit Robert tried to charge us for a "broken chair", when in fact we didn't break anything and took nothing but great care of the unit.
The Villa la Colina Condominiums are beautiful as described . The management their is awesome as Dmitri explained . We as AIRBNB hosts for these particular condos do not have control over the wi fi , and condo allocation .I was on the phone with the Villa la Colina management company in order for Dmitri and his friend to be let in and and get them escorted to their condo . This needs to be done especially for late night check ins as theirs was . I knew they were in good hands there and yes guests are handled by their management in the Villa la Colina Condos which is an excellent management group . The management did say that they broke a chair and a recliner and said they would speak to Dmitri about this .Overall I think that they had an enjoyable time and are staying another month with my neighbor /realtor .
We did not necessarily stay at this listing, we stayed about the luxury view condo in Coco Beach, however, Roberts hospitality was perfect. Whenever we needed something Rob was quick to help us in anyway possible. He even lent us a phone to use during our week long stay!
Thank you so much Robert!
We loved that place! Location is amazing, Playa Ocotal is amazing as well! Recommended!

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 .
