10/10 Exceptional

This is a lovely little resort. Clean, well maintained and super friendly staff. We stayed in villa 20 which was perfect for the two of us. Beautiful grassy area and nice little patio with a slight view of the ocean. Easy walk to the restaurant and beach although coming back is uphill. Pools were clean and the small bay was quiet. My only complaint ( if you can call it that) is the room amenities. No maid service, no coffee or any condiments needed to cook any food you may have brought. Not a huge deal but considering the restaurant does not open til noon, at least coffee should be provided. There are no ice machines or any typical amenities you might expect. For us, these were minor issues. We absolutely would stay here again!

Beautiful beach that is not crowded,sits on a bay that makes for swimming without strong waves. Lots of wildlife...we saw puffer fish, ray, dolphins, whale, racoons, iguanas and of course, the local blue jay.Onsite restaurant is great, staff was friendly and helpful.

10/10 Exceptional

A friend and I stayed at this resort for one week and every aspect of our stay exceeded our expectations. From the minute we arrived, we were met with nothing short of impeccable service. Every employee at this resort went above the highest bar to ensure we had the best experience as first-time visitors of Costa Rica. The servers at the restaurant did an amazing job in making us feel welcomed during each visit and went out of their way to give us special experiences, such as preparing a table for us along their beachfront. Abi, the concierge, also went above and beyond to ensure all of our itinerary-related needs were taken care of and immediately addressed any concerns we had in the most efficient, professional matter. The conditions of the resort, the amenities (i.e, the pool at the top of the resort), and the views we had from our two-person villa were also amazing. Overall, I highly recommend BPV to anyone who wants to visit Costa Rica and know this will be my go-to place when I come back.

8/10 Very Good

The property is very well kept. The staff and that is all the staff were wonderful and extremely helpful. The resort and location is great if you want to disconnect and just chill and relax. I was glad that I did read other reviews before going down. I was not planning to rent a car but we are very glad we did. You need a car if you want to do anything like site seeing and to eat at any other restaurants other than the one at the resort. The food at the resort was fantastic along with the drinks but it can be expensive. We stayed there a week and would have be bored if we did not rent a car. The unit we stayed in was fantastic and unbelievably clean. Had a great full equipped kitchen. What we did to help ourselves was we visited the marcados/ grocery stores and bought groceries to cook at the house and save money

Loved everything except fighting the bugs in the room but that’s expected. Only suggestion is to have more desserts options.

Property was excellent in general, construction for 3 days straight next door not so much. Intermittent hot water supply an issue.
