Location: Cabo Matapalo
Tres Palmas is truly exceptional. For those who care about these things, the quality of the construction, the finishes, and landscaping of this property were absolutely first-class. We spent a good deal of time admiring the enormous thatched roof and never ascended or descended the driveway on foot or by vehicle without shaking our heads in wonder that someone constructed that acutely steep path. Nota bene: do not rent an undersized vehicle — follow the guidelines outlined on the website, you’ll be very glad you did.
There’s so much more to tell you, but honestly, Tres Palmas was such a wonderful experience I almost hate to share it. You will not be disappointed.
This was our 2nd time in Costa Rica; Osa was a new area for us and we are so glad we chose Tres Palmas in every single way. Our entrance to the villa was breathtaking and truly spectacular. The profusion of flowers, the incredible view, the design and the layout was perfect for our group of 12: Ron and I (parents and grandparents) daughter Lara and her husband and 2 teenage girls, son Jere and his son and daughter, Zach and his son and daughter (kid’s ages 4 to 17). It was easy to select the perfect room for us. We really loved all the cozy areas in the large rotunda to appeal to any given constellation of people for games, coloring, reading, napping. The kids loved the pool, there were always fresh towels stacked up for us, we had room on a shelf and the fridge for our groceries and the kitchen was always neat and clean.
Thank you so so much! Ginny & Ron
The place is very likely THE best place to stay when you are visiting the Osa Peninsula. It is pricey but well worth the money. The view from the property over the Dulce Gulf toward Panama is outstanding. The primary house structure is one of a kind, an architectural marvel, made, seemingly, without a single nail. You can observe animal life right from the house; the place is the one the birdwatchers will die for. Have about a dozen scarlet macaws, few toucans and aracaris, curassows, small parrots, caracaras, white hawks and couple more birds in a view simultaneously is a fantastic experience.
Our stay at Tres Palmas was too short ..next time we will stay a week!
The photos don’t do this house justice..it is a stunner and the staff were wonderful. This was our 4th visit to the Matapalo area and by far the best.
I have never seen so many toucans which are my favourite of all birds.
Thank You Brad and George we had a wonderful stay.
