Great Views
Our stay was amazing. The property is beautiful. The hotel was clean, spacious, comfortable, and had every amenity we could need. The view from our room was spectacular. We spent a good amount of time during our stay on the hotel porch watching wildlife. Th staff was extremely helpful. The pool was in great condition and the food tasted wonderful. I highly recommend staying at Villas Alturas. The property also has a wildlife sanctuary which was another great experience and bonus. The photo I attached is the view from the porch.

Wow! This is paradise! The view of the ocean and the sounds of nature. We have seen so much wildlife from our villa, it's incredible. The room is quiet and private feeling. The staff had been wonderful and the food had been very good. I will definitely stay here again!

Would stay again!
Very spacious and comfortable accommodations. Great views of the Pacific and Whale's Tales but not too far off the main highway. Close to the sanctuary which we visit every time we are in the area. Our only disappointment was the menu change in the restaurant since our last visit. Menu geared more towards vegetarian tastes which is great but should include a pasta option or meat option for different people's tastes.

Wonderful spot
Unfortunately, the rainy season has lingered this year so outdoor activities were limited on this visit. But the hotel is a very nice place to be. The staff is great and very helpful.The owners keep a good eye on things, which I like. Felt like a second home actually. I will be back.

Great View and Food - But Avoid Room #6
This place is worth it just for the view and the food. The free breakfast was delicious (and a lot of options on the menu). Also, we ate dinner there and it was one of the best meals of our trip. We were disappointed that we were given room #6 (especially considering I sent an email a day before checking in directly to the hotel requesting ANY room other than room #6 based on prior reviews saying it had a bad location and bad view) but still were assigned to room #6 because supposedly it was the only room available. Although it was very large and clean, the other rooms have much better views and are located in better locations (room #6 is next to the parking lot and main lobby so you can't leave the blinds open and the ocean view is almost entirely blocked by trees). So try to get a room other than room #6 and your stay will be perfect.
