nice place, mice location
Our experience in Las Tecas was dreadful. Part of it is absolutely personal: I am allergic to cats and dogs, and the place has literally three cats, and several dogs were in the premises. We could see the balls of hair everywhere, in the pool as well. We would have left, but the penalty for leaving early is unreasonable, so I just doped myself with antihistaminic. The next problem is not personal at all. The guests were friends with the manager so we did not feel like going to common areas because we felt we were intruding (again, we felt pretty uncomfortable). The worst part happened when they party at night. One night they ended at 4:30, and the next day 5:44 in the morning. The pool and common area was in a horrendous state. Needless to say we did not manage to get them quiet as the manager was again involved (and had the loudest voice in the party). I contacted the owner, but he did not do anything. So, there we were paying for not sleeping. Lastly, when you calculate how much you will be spending, add at least 10 $ more per night, as taxes. And, again, we could not just part our way because we were not going to have our money back. My days there were not what I expected as holidays; they left me with a sour taste. To add to the list, the kitchen's appliances are old (and very, very basic), our shower only worked sporadically, I had to ask for toilet paper almost everyday (and have the garbage removed). If you are looking for a party, or you are a pet lover, this may be the place for you.
Rebecca visited Villa Las Tecas ("VLT") for about 2 1/2 weeks and never voiced any complaints to the management or owner until the last night of their stay, which happened to be New Year's Eve... We strive to keep our guests happy and do all we can to make their visit enjoyable, relaxing, fun and memorable, and to resolve any problems or issues they may have. Thankfully we normally have very happy guests who return again and also refer us to their friends and family. The managers of "VLT" are very friendly, helpful, considerate and pro active with our guests needs and hotel operations. We have spoken to the other guests who generally contradict Rebecca's complaints, and feel her review to be exaggerated, unfair and inaccurate. Regarding pets, there are just 2 cats who live outside, are rarely seen and have no impact upon the guests. There has never been a "pet complaint" before in the history of Villa Las Tecas! In reality, VLT is a small, tranquil hotel with friendly management who work hard to make our guest’s vacations the best they can be!
To insure transparency and truth in this review it is necessary to include the management's reply (this reply does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the owner):
"Anyone who has ever been to Costa Rica knows that it would be nearly impossible to avoid cats/dogs/ and other animals. Mostly every property has at least one dog for safety reasons, and good luck even walking down the street without seeing an animal! A far as the common areas, a constant effort is made to keep these areas clean. However, when the hotel is full there may be some times when you can tell that the areas are "used". Luckily, none of the other guests seemed to mind when Patrick and Rebecca left their personal belongings (water shoes, towels and other articles of clothing) strewn around the pool area. Not everyone staying at the hotel were "friends" with the managers either. There were plenty others staying at the time who had no prior connection to the managers and no problem using the common areas. If being social is a problem then one may need to rethink staying at ANY HOTEL in Costa Rica ESPECIALLY OVER THE HOLIDAYS. You cannot expect to stay at any hotel ANYWHERE and be completely isolated from any other patrons and have full PRIVATE use of all areas. If complete isolation is a priority in accommodations then i would recommend spending the extra cash and renting out a full private house. Patrick and Rebecca stayed 15 days without one complaint until New Year's Eve and the night before. Rebecca asked if the guests could be asked to be quiet before midnight ON NEW YEARS EVE. This request may be hard to accommodate considering the entire town is enjoying New Year’s festivities. Also I want to add that there were family oriented guests (Kirk and his two boys of ages 12 and 19) staying directly above the rancho and next to the pool at the time. After Rebecca's New Year's Eve noise complaints, Kirk was asked if the hotel was too loud at any time or if his YOUNG CHILDREN were bothered (especially being the closest to the common areas) and he assured us that everything was great! We also found it a bit odd that Rebecca did ask for toilet paper everyday as she wrote in her review, considering I'm not sure how just two people can go through one complete roll of toilet paper per day! As far as taxes, yes everywhere has them, and if you look up Costa Rica's laws you will find tax is 13%. It is high, yes, but that is an issue that one could only take up with the Costa Rican government! As the great Ben Franklin said, "The only thing certain in life is death and taxes." Patrick and Rebecca also should have been charged an extra fee for the way that they kept the villa. Yes, it is vacation, however when cleaning the villa halfway through their stay the condition they left it in could only be described as "embarrassing" on their part. It seemed as if the only "partying" going on was in their villa as I've seen college frat houses in better condition. We took the extra time to take pictures for document because we were so shocked by their absolute trashing of the place (including used dental hygiene products spread throughout the villa, yuck!). Maybe next year for the holidays a trip to a private condo in a senior citizens home in Florida may better suit the needs of Patrick and Rebecca. "
