As soon as your entourage enters Villa Ambiente's pristine gates, navigating its paved driveway lined with wispy palm trees and old-fashion street lights, you'll know you're all in for something truly special. Open the front door and your vacation dreams quickly become a reality. A beautiful, natural-light garden and flowing water fountain greet visitors on arrival. There are four private bedrooms adjacent to the first-floor garden, two on the left and two on the right. Each room has its own air conditioning unit, television, bathroom, secure safety box and private patio.

Past the garden is a grand entertaining room complete with soft-to-the-touch sofas, love seats and tables. An immaculate wine bar is nestled on the right side of the room, the perfect place to unwind with a glass of chardonnay after a long day under the Central American sun. About that sun: you'll have plenty of time to catch rays out at the 40-foot infinity pool, which is second to none in terms of location and looks. And don't even think about packing towels on this trip. We have you covered from the moment you arrive to the second you say 'adios!' 

The pool is lined with layout chairs and tables, and a barbecue is always on standby to crank out some local fish. There's also an outdoor shower and changing room nearby. On the west side of the pool deck, the side that's closest to the ocean, sits an outdoor tiki bar that easily seats a half-dozen guest. If you ever wanted to pretend you were Tom Cruise in 'Cocktail,' mixing drinks behind your back and tossing tequila in the air, this is the premier spot to work on your libation-making skills.

Your Own Private Mini Resort


It was the most fantastic vacation of our entire life. First of all Costa Rica is one of the most beautiful countries in the world and
Villa Ambiente is at it's most charming spot in the middle of the jungle. You can hear a lot of animal sounds, and you have a beautiful view to the Pacific Ocean, and the rainforest. We saw a lot of interesting, exotic animals and had a wonderful time here. You can do everything in the house that you can at home, it's just that it is the nicest spot on earth. Thank you for everything.

I just returned from a 10 day stay at the Villa Ambiente with my husband, two children and family friends of ours - another family of four.  We had a fantastic stay at this property.  There were enough bedrooms for two more families of four and plenty of awesome indoor and outdoor living space.  The furniture has been recently updated and the beds and bedrooms were extremely comfortable with both fans and air conditioning.  
The pool was fantastic, probably the best part.  Everyday upon return from an adventure in the surrounding area, our two families would swim and lounge by the pool for hours.  The view of the bay and surrounding rain forest from the pool area was spectacular.  The house, grounds and pool are all very well maintained by the staff to help guarantee a luxurious stay.  We would certainly stay at the Villa Ambiente again.

I have been to several nice hotels along the Dominical coast.
I would put this one at the top of the list. The architecture, setting, view, food, overall tastefulness, and comfort could not be improved upon. It is also a very well managed property. Eager to return.

The villa itself is magnificent, with spacious rooms, and everything you need to feel at home. The pool area is wonderful. The view is beyond compare. You have mountains, ocean, wildlife, rain forest,and birds all surrounding you. Everyone works hard to make sure you are having a good time. I recommend this resort to anyone who wants to see a little bit of heaven on earth. It is truly amazing. Clean and very well maintained. The photos really don't capture just how beautiful this place is. There are several delicious restaurants very close to the villa. We cooked on the beautiful patio several nights. If you are looking for a private get away into paradise, this is your place!!!

The kitchen, also located on the first floor adjacent to the wine bar, is completely up to date with stainless steel appliances, filtered water, a wine cooler and dishwasher. 

While most of the action takes place on the first floor, there are four additional bedrooms on the second floor. Each of these rooms features a king bed, balcony, television, safe security box, air conditioning and bathroom.

Above all that, on the third floor, is a small lookout area good for gazing into the nearby jungle. Grab some binoculars and go up there because you never know; you might just see a family of white-faced monkeys or a couple of Parrots out there.
