The following reviews are from, brides/grooms, event guests, and destination wedding planners.
"Thank you so very much for having us and for creating such a masterpiece! I can't even describe in words how amazing and perfect your house was for our event! It was more than I could have ever imagined! You & all of the staff (more like family =) were so warm and welcoming and made our wedding day so special. Thank you thank you thank you!
I have to tell you, you would think being that the house is large and insanely gorgeous it would not be as intimate and welcoming, but it was just that! We felt so comfortable and at ease and the entire time we were in total amazement that this was going to be the place for our reception! It was insanely awesome to see the transformation from the house to the reception and we never once felt like we were staying in any type of "event center", it was truly a unique experience and we will never forget it! Because of you we felt the most at ease and confident the reception was going to be fabulous! Please let us know if you would like us to do any more comments, etc for your website and/or marketing of the house.
I am sure some of our guests would also be happy to share their experience as well! I cannot tell you how many people are STILL talking about the Manuel Antonio wedding and are in complete amazement of what they saw and experienced!"

"The wedding [and stay] was simply wonderful and we want to thank you because most of it was Punto de Vista! All our guests loved it and even the pickier ones agreed it was a spectacular place. My Brother Mauricio was surprised we have something like your place here in CR, a small jewel. In brief, it was definitely our best choice and we are very happy about it. Raul and the cook were simply great. Many other guests we had who have been in the government and abroad made excellent comments."

"Thank you very much to you and your team at Punto de Vista. We really had a great experience and a wonderful wedding dinner and party. All our guests were delighted by Casa Punto de Vista.”
- Marco R., San Jose, Costa Rica– villa bride and guest
" We renewed our wedding vows atop Punta de Vista. The service was brief, eloquent, and deeply moving. (the villa owner), a perfect host, recruited a local guitarist to provide a living soundtrack to our special moment. Punto de Vista is a can’t-miss destination within Costa Rica, itself a can’t-miss destination!"

"I have experienced and hosted events at some of the most luxurious homes I thought I had ever set foot in... until I toured Punto de Vista. Your villa blew me away! IT is by far the BEST luxury estate I have seen from an event planners point of view. You are the first home owner who took basic event knowledge and applied that to your design. With many homes we have to get so creative in how to create enough space so that an event will work. Your home will need no creativity as you have already taken care of that.
You are the ONLY home in the country that has enough open space for a ceremony and reception to take place in 2 separate spots with enough seating for plus 70 guests. Your views are beyond amazing and the design is first class all the way. The house in my opinion is Magically perfect!!. I am thrilled with what you have created and very much look forward to hosting yet another event in the beauty of what you created with our clientele."

"I wanted to thank you again for your very kind hospitality at Punto de Vista. All I can say is WOW! They say that beauty is all in the details – that being true, Punto de Vista is GORGEOUS! You have a true gem, the crown jewel of villas in Costa Rica and you have every reason to be proud of the amazing feat of architecture fused with seamless design you’ve created.
I’m constantly searching for unique locations for my clients and Punto de Vista is now at the top of my list! The view, the accommodations, the location - all fabulous. But what really impresses is the attention to detail in building a space that really works for events.
An event at a private residence is always much more work for my crew, as the infrastructure is always lacking. However, the inclusion of an elevator, two sets of public restrooms, ramps for physically challenged guests, the spectacular roof top deck, the industrial-sized kitchen, the main floor lounge/disco with the DJ ‘booth’ up stairs – you really thought this out from a event planner’s point of view and I thank you. My job just became a lot easier!
Congratulations again on creating the most ‘wedding friendly’ villa in Costa Rica! Looking forward to many incredible events at your luxurious space."
