ARE WE ON THE BEACH? YES…steps away!
Possibly the #1 question we hear from guests preparing to stay with us is “is Red Palm Villas right on the beach”?
The answer is an overwhelming YES! We are right ON the beach with some of the best ocean views in Costa Rica. You can not get any closer, our villas and suites are literally just steps away from the water’s edge. So if you are searching for a Costa Rica beach front hotel, Red Palm Villas is the best choice for your Costa Rica Vacation, destination wedding or magical Costa Rica Honeymoon.
Another common question, “can you swim directly in front of our resort?” Depending on tides and the size of waves, swimming in front of our villas can be safe but, the ocean is a huge force of nature and we always recommend/suggest caution when entering. Check around, ask, listen, be careful and always err on the side of caution.
Just a few hundred feet down the beach to the left is the safest area during mid to high tides where you can enjoy swimming over 300 days a year. Some days due to storms or strong tides, full moons, etc., you need to exercise more caution.
You CAN surf, swim and relax in front of The Red Palm Villas, about 20 steps from our beach front villas are lounge hairs and plenty of hammocks overlooking our pristine Blue Flag beach.
Families with children are always welcomed at Red Palm Villas, our facilities are safe and from our private beach at mid to low tides you will find amazing natural tide pools, all very interesting and child safe. We also hold the record for having the youngest surfing student, 3 years old, she caught her first wave in front of The Red Palms.
Our property is a safe haven to bring your children and loved ones but of course, we ALWAYS recommend you ask questions, when in doubt, don’t and if you err, please, err on the side of caution.
Our property over the years has been a refuge to many many Costa Rica Rescue Dogs, many baby squirrels and even a cat, a few birds and other wildlife. Presently we are caring for two of the nicest, smartest, most protective dogs you ever met, Ceiba on left, Cisco on right. For most they are one of the many highlights of our resort. If you like animals/dogs you can bet these guys will know it and they will take walks with you, hang out with you, show you around the neighborhood and make you feel welcomed and right at home. If you are not an animal lover, not to worry, they will sense this as well and not bother you at all.
All our master bedrooms have AC but if you’re not a big fan of AC you can sleep comfortably without AC most nights. It’s good to know we offer it but even better to know you can open a window and enjoy the cool evenings if you prefer no AC. All of our AC units are high efficiency, eco friendly, super cool and super quiet split AC units. The compressors are outside to ensure your night is quiet and restful when in use.
Regarding a pool, directly next door to us, a 2 minute walk, is Milarepa Hotel, a small boutique hotel and French restaurant who serves tasty, fresh, organic food. We offer a Gourmet Breakfast served poolside with all our packages, there you are also welcomed to use the pool.
Having no restaurant on our property helps to keep the Red Palm Villas private and intimate with only guests on our exclusive beachfront setting. Our relationship with Milarepa Hotel allows us to offer the best of both worlds, villas stocked with mini bars, surrounded by great food but no public traffic allows us to offer you the ultimate private, intimate and romantic experience with no inconvenience for food or beverages.
We offer a well thought out alternative option to a busy resort. Everything you need is steps away while everything you really need, peace and quiet, surround you. That’s the Red Palm Villas experience and that’s why we have a 5/5 STAR rating from over 200 past guests.
