    Where do I begin? The property is intimate, with 12 villas in total and very well kept. The view from the infinity pool and our ocean view villa was breathtaking! The sounds of the jungle, day and night, were so relaxing! The service and staff were outstanding! The food and drinks were extremely fresh and delicious! They arranged our excursions and round trip rides. The owner, Dave, along with the rest of the staff continuously checked in on us throughout the duration of our trip to ensure we had everything we needed and were were will taken care of. This was such a peaceful, tranquil, and relaxing property to stay at! Highly recommended for a couples trip, relaxing girls trip, or solo trip.

    What sets oxygen jungle villas apart is it’s ocean view, all glass cabinas and it’s top notch service. Since there are only 12 cabins total, it has a very boutique feel and customer service is personalized. I would go back!

    Our 4 night experience at Oxygen Villas was fantastic. The unique nature of the rooms and location on the mountain made for a magical experience. Waking up each morning to the sounds and sights of the immediate surroundings and amazing views of the ocean and coast line added to the effect. The limited number of guest units made for a more private and exclusive feeling while dining or relaxing at the gorgeous infinity pool with view. Our stay was made complete with stellar service from the great staff who were all friendly, helpful and a pleasure to be around. Thanks again to Gary, Anna, Roy, Steven and Leidy for our wonderful stay. We had a blast!

    Jungle villa

    Our stay at the villas was an incredible experience. The staff always went above and beyond. I ultimately felt like a queen the whole 3 days we were there. Yes this is a pricier option compared to some but I would 100% pay the price again. The villas themselves were always so clean and stocked up when we would return from our daily activities. We chose a jungle villas instead of an ocean villa and I’m so glad we did. One morning (at 5am) we were woken up my a howler monkey which was a really cool experience.
