It is home of the Westin Hotel, with a W Hotel currently under construction. Amazing amenities include a par 71 golf course designed by Robert Trent Jr, tennis courts and an amazing beachfront beach club with pool, health center, bar/restaurant, and a Spa. The hilly topography allows for challenging trails for hiking, running or biking and it also hosts areas for easy walks. The trails are quite amazing as there is plenty of wildlife to see; amazing birds, squirrels, howler monkeys, coatis, sloths, huge iguanas, and whitetail deer. In this area, the flora has 2 different noticeable looks throughout the year, dry and the wet. The change in the vegetation is quite amazing as it goes from fully dry forest during the dry season (December to May) to an incredible mesmerizing lush green during the wet season (June to November).
As if all mentioned wasn’t enough, there are 2 key factors of this wonderful gated community:
1- Infrastructure: Over 5 kilometers of concrete roads, underground utilities, water treatment plant, a desalination plant in case needed and solar panels beginning to be used in different areas of the resort.
2- The legal framework for secure ownership: Fully titled and deeded. Get in touch with me to understand how is it established and why this is an advantage and beneficial for you as a buyer.
Regarding the community, there is an international mix demographically that has seen younger buyers for the past 5 years. The majority of owners remain US followed by Canadians, Costa Ricans come in 3rd position and then you there are more owners from different countries like, Italy, France, Czech Republic, Venezuela, Colombia amongst others. Although the majority of owners use their property as a second or third home, the amount of families living within the community has grown noticeably over the past years. A number of them are long-term renters but many owners have decided to make Costa Rica and Reserva Conchal their home. A variety of activities are held on a weekly and monthly basis so that you can meet your neighbors. Never before has there been so many kids of different ages within the community.
