What People are Saying

Costa Rica

Absolutely no complaints!

I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed the villa. Petra and Mauro are AMAZING and were the best hosts! I felt like I was staying with family. I would tell anyone and everyone I know who could afford it to go there! I want to take my whole family there someday…let my girls hang out and paint with Petra! We all commented that we felt safe and everything was clean, beautiful etc. Absolutely no complaints! Our driver Alban was awesome as well. I honestly cannot say enough about him. He was always on time, always there with a smile, recommended great places for us to go for dinner, beach, etc. 5 stars. He made all the excursions easy and stress free! I would recommend the entire experience to any and every one! Kim T.

Incredible time.

We all had an incredible time in Cabo! Thank you so much for all your help! We all agreed the sunset cruise and ziplining were excellent choices for excursions. I thoroughly enjoyed working with you and hope to work with you again some time in the future.Stephanie G.
Belize

Wonderful trip.

I cannot tell you what a wonderful trip we had! All ages absolutely loved it! My kids say every day that they miss Belize and my parents said it was maybe one of their best vacations ever – which is saying a lot – they’re world travelers. The weather was perfect, the excursions we took were so memorable and the food superb. I have to tell you, one of the absolute highlights of our trip was Emerson. What a special guy you have in him! He was the best host ever – always seeing to our needs, checking in with us, and preparing the most delicious and thoughtful meals (fresh fish that we caught every night!). Many thanks for all your attention in helping to make it a wonderful vacation for all of us!Jennifer H.

We definitely will be returning.

We had such a great time at the house and with Emerson. I cannot say enough good things about him. Just so well mannered, pleasant and fun to be around. We definitely will be returning to Belize and would love to check out your other properties. Sandy K.
St. Thomas

Absolutely gorgeous.

We had a wonderful time in St. Thomas! The Villa was absolutely gorgeous. Every vendor was pleasant and attentive. We didn’t have any issues or concerns during our stay. Thank you for all your help to arrange our stay. We would definitely entertain another trip through your organization!Tom B.

Perfect fit for us

The villa was a perfect fit for us. We were a group with a wide age range, 22-80, and it served us all very well. Baruch is quite welcoming and resourceful. He explained everything very well to us and stopped back during the week. He recommended several restaurants to us. Each was delicious. We had a fun sunset sail and would recommend it to all visitors. Thank you for all your assistance.Mary H.
Costa Rica

Best vacation we ever had!

I just want to let you know that our trip to Costa Rica was the best vacation we ever had! Thank you so much for helping us plan it! It went so smoothly, from the time we touched down in San Jose. We had someone meet us and guide us through customs. Gioconda, our driver, met us. She was helpful, knowledgeable and truly a joy to be with throughout the week. We enjoyed every excursion; all the guides were kind, friendly and patient. Our three excursion days were fantastic. The guides were fun, safe and enthusiastic. You could tell that they loved their job! They helped us as a family to truly enjoy the day. They accommodated us, so that even my 4 -year old could try everything! Michael from the villa met us and explained in detail all the amenities at the villas and pool. The pool area and beach were amazing. We enjoyed the monkey tour and guided tour through the national park. Las Caletas was beautiful. The adventure dining was amazing, too! Dave was so kind to open his property up just for us. We felt so special. It was an amazing trip! I hope we can go back again! Thanks again for making it so special!!Amy and Jeff A.
St. Thomas

Amazing experience.

We had an amazing experience in St. Thomas! Anthony was wonderful and the driver was top notch. We are already dreaming about our next adventure to the Virgin Islands. The charter catamaran and the fishing expeditions were the highlights of the vacation as well as the home itself. The views were phenomenal! Over all we just wished we had more time (and better weather) and can’t stop thinking and talking about how to get back there. Thank you so much for helping with our wonderful first time in the USVI.Ann W.

Immensely enjoyed our stay at your villa!

This is late in coming, but no less heartfelt! Our group of 5 couples immensely enjoyed our stay at your villa in St. Thomas in January! The accommodations were beautiful and spacious, allowing us plenty of room to gather together while also providing each of us with our own private space (and very comfortable beds). We treated ourselves to your chef services our first night, thanks to your suggestion. Great idea! After hours of travel to get there, then unpacking, it was such a treat to be able to kick back and have delicious salmon and steaks prepared for us! The chef and staff were pleasant to be around and the kitchen was left spotless. We also loved the catamaran snorkeling trip with Captain Tim and First Mate John! So. Much. FUN! We spent the entire day on their beautiful boat (loved the bean bags on the bow!), drinking rum punch, eating the amazing appetizer and lunch they served us, snorkeling, and enjoying the sunshine and views. This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip! Lastly, and most importantly, our trip was elevated from 'great' to 'outstanding' thanks to the services of our driver, Andrew (again, at your suggestion:))! First of all, Andrew's van was large enough for all 10 of us to be together and fit comfortably. He so deftly maneuvered through the windy, hilly, roads on the island (which we were all relieved we didn't have to drive on!), putting us all at ease. He was timely, so polite, and offered great suggestions and insights on St. Thomas. Most of all, he was a complete joy to be around! We absolutely LOVED Andrew and still find ourselves talking about him and reminiscing when we are together! If we are lucky enough to return to St. Thomas, we will definitely seek him out again. Anyone who employs his services will certainly not be disappointed! Thank you, Andrew!! Thanks again to all who had a part in helping to make our vacation so very special and memorable! Lisa S.
Costa Rica

Everyone was so nice!

We absolutely loved Costa Rica and all the local people. Everyone was so nice! Hermosa was fun too since they had huge waves and a big surfing competition when we first got there. Drivers were great all week too! We just loved Kenneth and would have brought him home with us! We had a very nice experience and thank you for all your work and for setting up all the fun excursions. Fishing was so great! Monkey tour, zip line, rappelling, and the national park were all so wonderful! Would do the trip all over again and recommend it to anyone!Meredith L.
Costa Rica

we LOVED Costa Rica!

First of all, we LOVED Costa Rica! Everything you set up for us was AWESOME! Really enjoyed the excursions. Having Kenneth as a driver made the entire trip so much better! He was so helpful, accommodating, on time, and very personable. Thank you for arranging everything. We travel a lot, and I am the one always planning and making arrangements. You did a great job. We plan on buying a home somewhere in the Caribbean, or maybe even Costa Rica. The chef was amazing too!! Best Thanksgiving meal ever.Christine G.

5 stars all around.

5 stars all around. Anthony was great and informative. We appreciated all of his recommendations – especially restaurant recommendations. Also, Liston was fantastic and we really enjoyed spending the week with him as our driver. Everyone on your team has gone above and beyond to make our vacation epic. My wife’s 40th birthday is next year and we are already talking about going back to St. Thomas to celebrate!Tom R.

The trip was absolutely fantastic!

The trip was absolutely fantastic! I have no bad feedback at all. The caretakers of the house (Dennis and Priscilla) were amazing and were extremely helpful with any questions we had. The transportation service was great as well.Mac C.

Thank you! We had a great trip.

Thank you! We had a great trip. Our drivers, Liston and Johnson were definitely well worth it. They took great care of us! We really enjoyed the dining area on the terrace and all of the bedrooms very comfortable. We had a great time!Caroline W.

We had a great time.

We had a great time and your villa was beyond expectations. We had no problems with the villa itself except not wanting to leave! My guests were very impressed with the accommodations. I will keep you in mind for additional trips we may have in the future. Jack W.

WE LOVED IT!

WE LOVED IT! Thank you so much for your help in planning our African Adventure. The Camp/Accommodations were beautiful! The people were the best! Adventures, Animals, Amazing Food – a trip we will never forget or stop talking about! We could not have asked for more! Thank you again!Jan A.
Costa Rica

We had a great vacation!

Phillipe was so awesome and his service was absolutely incredible! Kenneth was the best driver and we greatly appreciated his service over the week as well! The chef was incredible. His food was so good! Fishing was good. On two of our four trips, we caught a sailfish. One trip caught several yellowfin tuna and a mahi. Costa Rica treated us very well and we had a great vacation!Natalie T.

Trip of a a lifetime

Our vacation in St. Thomas that we purchased through Sporting Adventures and Primus was one of the best weeks of my life! There were 5 couples that went and stayed in the 5 bedroom 5 ½ bath Exclusive Villa #6 also known as Villa Soriso. I have to say the description and pictures were saw before we left actually under stated just how nice this home really is. From the high-end appliances to the soft touch drawers this villa was amazing. The views from EVERY bedroom were spectacular, as well as the large side porch with the 10-person table to the other covered porch viewing the pool. The pool was another feature that was a huge bonus. The water was about 78-80 degrees so while cool at first, was a nice place to cool off when it got a little hot on the deck. The kitchen had everything you would need, and the beds and pillows were a great place to collapse at the end of the day. I was out within minutes! As I said earlier, the views were spectacular! Looking from the pool deck we were on the edge of a cliff that was about 70 feet above the water. We also had views directly in front of our villa of Hans Lollick Island, and then to our East was St. Johns, Tortola as well as Jost Van Dyke. We opted for a driver for the week and I would highly encourage anyone that is not comfortable driving on the wrong side of the road to consider. It was money well spent and the driver was full of great information as well. I along with the group that went on this trip would just like to thank you for all that you did to make this a trip of a a lifetime. I couldn't have asked for a better time.J. Landon

We had a wonderful time.

We had a wonderful time on the trip and could not have enjoyed our stay anymore! I especially want to express how happy we were with Emerson and his service throughout the week. He was extremely attentive, helpful, and always willing to help with a smile. He was very accommodating and I would recommend that anyone get him for the week.Gerardo I.

We all absolutely loved the trip.

We all absolutely loved the trip. Emerson is awesome! He is so professional and is an amazing cook! He made us all feel safe and was very helpful in arranging anything we wanted to do or see! The trip was so fun and Emerson and Ghian were great! House is beautiful as well. Thanks!!!Carli B.

THANKS! THANKS! THANKS!

THANKS! THANKS! THANKS! Just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful time but it was ended way too soon! The villa, fishing with Colin, island hopping with Christian, and our property manager Anthony - all were great! Our driver was beyond fantastic. He was kind, prompt, fun, helpful, and is now considered to be part of the family! Thank you again for making our trip so unique and memorable! Hope to do it again!Julie T.
St. Thomas

It was absolutely awesome!

It was absolutely awesome! We could not have asked for a more beautiful setting and we thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. Liston and Jackson drove us around all week and were very professional, agreeable and ready to do whatever we needed (Anthony was very nice also)! We all want to go back to St. Thomas. Thanks so much for all of your help everything was just PERFECT!Sharon A.
St. Thomas

AMAZING!

We had a super time in St. Thomas. The house was AMAZING! Everyone had a great time. All of the vendors, ziplining, fishing, and parasailing were amazing as well. You could tell that safety was their number one priority which we appreciated. I would definitely take this trip again and recommend it to everyone. My boys, 20 and 23, both said that this was the best vacation yet. Looking forward to working with you again. Suzanne S.

Incredible!!!

Incredible!!! It was the most amazing experience. We could have never imagined it to be that great! The accommodations and service was better than anything that we’ve ever experienced. We loved the intimacy of small camp, luxury tents, exquisite food, and wonderful staff! We did several excursions which were ones to remember including the elephant encounter. We loved going to some of the other bigger parks but then being able to come back to the lodge. Such an incredible experience!!!Chad H.
Costa Rica

We had an amazing time.

We had an amazing time there, and do hope to go back. The house was a perfect size for us and Michael was wonderful. He was key to a fun and successful vacation. We did an excursion each day we were there, which worked out well for us. Overall, we were extremely pleased with our entire vacation.Cindy W.

Everything we needed.

We all thought the villa was gorgeous, well appointed and the pictures did not do it justice! We loved the house and the view. We all would recommend you for others looking to do a 4-5-star vacation. This property was a stunner with everything we needed and more! Martha B.
St. Thomas

Everything was exceptional.

I wanted to say that everyone in our group, agreed that this was one of the best vacations they have been on, myself included. Everything was exceptional, starting with the concierge staff's assistance with questions and scheduling / creating our itinerary for the week. I have planned group vacations in the past (never one with 12 people) and it was very stressful, but even with such a large group, this was not the case with you guys. I am extremely impressed with your ability to accommodate our group after the devastation caused by the hurricanes that hit St. Thomas. You were able to book us into Sugar Point (this was a beautiful house with amazing views) when our initially scheduled villa still had no power due to the hurricanes. Not only were you able to get us into another villa on our originally scheduled dates, but you were also able to get all of our requested activities/excursions booked. I would highly recommend you guys for anyone wanting to plan a group vacation.
Once we landed on the island, we were greeted by Andrew, the driver that you provided us for the week. Andrew was incredible, he was very knowledgeable about the island and could tell stories/facts about different things on the island, as if we had a tour guide everywhere we went. He was always on time and very responsive to our phone calls or texts asking for him to pick us up. Hiring a driver would be my number 1 recommendation for anyone traveling to St. Thomas. We would have spent hours trying to find our way to everywhere we went, and the roads are narrow and winding, and without experience driving these roads, I would have felt unsafe.
When we arrived at the Villa we were greeted by Nathan, our Property Manager. On several occasions I called him asking for recommendations for beaches or restaurants to go to. We enjoyed all of his recommendations and he would even set up reservations for our group prior to us arriving. Also I noticed I had left a $300 pair of headphones when we were at the airport leaving the island. I called Nathan, and he immediately went to the villa, looked for them and notified me that he found them. He then mailed them to my house. I was astonished by his integrity as most vacation home’s staff would have said they could not find them even if they did. He was a great guy that I highly recommend.
Everything about this vacation was incredible! We will definitely be using Sporting Adventures International again for our next beach vacation.David L. and Chipper J.

It was an amazing holiday.

It was an amazing holiday and there is nothing that could be improved to be honest as it was brilliant. The guide Andre was superb and went out of his way to help and make our stay memorable for all the right reasons. The lodge was amazing with food fit for a 5-star hotel. Service was smiley, happy and very friendly. The game drives were varied and interesting. The highlights were all of the above and the trip to the top of their “Table Mountain” to see for miles around and enjoy a sundowner and also seeing the hippos across the lake feeding on the grass and then waking up to them right near our tent!

Sheer Luxury

Dee at Primus Villas was absolutely amazing helping me book around my husband’s sudden illness. She even emailed to specifically ask how he was. It made it a very personal process and took away the stress I was feeling with the booking. The facilities were sheer luxury from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. Andre and his team, along with Chris the chef made sure we had the most amazing holiday. Nothing was too much trouble. We would love to return someday. The location was very peaceful and a great location for getting away from it all and hippo watching was awesome! What an amazing experience. We had no idea this camp existed and feel like we found a gem! Great location, great staff, great animals, super luxury all around. Also well worth the money and the charity benefited also. Thank you!!Catherine C.
Belize

We loved it.

We had a great time. Emerson and JR (our Chef) were the best. The food could not have been any better. We loved it so much we decided to just let him cook all of our meals. The Villa was so beautiful, and everything was kept very nice. Thanks for all you did for us! Lorraine A.
Belize

Good memories.

We had a great time in Belize. The villa was great and a great place to hang out when we weren’t off doing things. There was always a great breeze at the villa to cool down during the day and evening. Drove the golf carts quite a bit and they made it nice to get around. A couple of us went fishing two days during our stay. Fishing was very good, sightseeing the cays and reefs outstanding, and our fishing guide was great in showing his world to us. We left with good memories.Jim L.
St. Thomas

The BEST time.

We had the BEST time. The villa was absolutely beautiful and couldn’t have been more perfect for our group. Our driver was the utmost professional and would highly recommend him to anyone wanting the driver service. He went out of his way to show us the local experience by taking us to his favorite bars and restaurants, so we could break away from the tourist scene for a bit. We’re trying to get him to come visit us in Denver! Ali W.
Costa Rica

Lovely trip

I’m having serious vacation withdrawal after the trip to Costa Rica! It really was such a lovely trip and I would say that our driver and Petra and Mauro, made the trip extra special. They recommended places to go and see. They were so friendly and kind and took time to share their knowledge and passion for the area. I’m super appreciative of all the tips and guidance you provided as well. It really made a difference in our planning and experience. Lisa T.
Costa Rica

The most amazing time

We had the most amazing time on our trip! All of us came back more relaxed than we’ve ever been before. We had great experiences with everyone in Costa Rica. The shuttle ride to and from the airport went smoothly and even though we were delayed about 90 minutes getting through customs the driver was not the least bit phased. The rental car company was really easy to deal with and that all went great as well. Best of all, the villa was absolutely perfect! Petra and Mauro were amazing and went above and beyond to make our stay the best ever. They were so nice and accommodating, and even helped us return our rental car by offering to pick us up and bring us back to the villa. Our chef dinner was the highlight of the week as well. The food was astounding, and it was great to be there to watch them prepare it and interact with them. Thanks so much for helping us out with everything. We’re already talking about going back and/or visiting another of your locations. John L.
Belize

The trip was great!

The trip was great! We thoroughly enjoyed it. Emerson was awesome! He provided us great service and we enjoyed his company. The food he prepared was so good that we ended up eating at the house all week long and the extra cost was minimal compared to dining out. Kareen and Damius the house staff were wonderful as well. They definitely should be commended for the great job they do. We had a bad experience on a trip to Jamaica two years back where our room was robbed, and they took all our belongings so that always weighs heavily on our minds and I had no reservations with this group. They were very honest and reliable staff. Laura B.
Costa Rica

We had a great time.

We had a great time; everyone enjoyed themselves. The house was lovely and fully stocked with dishes, utensils, etc. There were three things that added to the pleasure of our trip:

Our driver, Kenneth, was so accommodating and nice. He took us to several unique restaurants that were ones we would not have found on our own. He was outstanding.

The people at the Ocean Ranch Park were wonderful. They helped us whenever we needed help; they were professional in every way. When we finished our activities, they disappeared so it was hard to track them down to give them a tip. Unlike many other places we have been in, this was a refreshing treat. They worked hard in everything they did.

The lady that cared for our home away from home, Pricilla, was a jewel. She even washed our dirty clothes, which none of us expected. If I could clone her and take her home, it would be wonderful.

All in all, it was a great vacation.Tony and Dale F.
South Africa

We’ll definitely be back.

We spent an idyllic five days in South Africa in December/ January 2018 seeing the new year in on the game reserve. It was a simply wonderful time. The food was not only plentiful but exquisitely cooked and the prediction that we would leave a few pounds heavier was definitely true. The tents are better than most hotels I have stayed in, with luxurious furnishings. The pictures really don’t do them justice. The outdoor shower is a wonderful touch. Best of all, of course, was the game drives twice a day, where we saw a whole variety of wildlife from zebra and baboons to giraffe and impala. Andre was incredibly knowledgeable about the wildlife and we learned an awful lot from him which I don’t think we would have done at other farms. My only ‘complaint’ was that the hippos kept us awake at night – what a wonderful thing to be able to say. We’ll definitely be back. Cathy H.
Costa Rica

Our trip was great.

Our trip was great and everything went according to plan. Rosie was helpful and the accommodations were perfect. The fishing trip was great we caught fish and the crew was a lot of fun. The owner of the charter company was very nice and told us that the inshore fishing had been very bad the last month, so we opted for the offshore and we were glad we did. He also said that you guys were the most professional group that he deals with. The van driver was unbelievable and went out of his way to make sure everything went right. As I said, we all had a great time and we would recommend the trip to anyone. Ron W.
St. Thomas

The villa was perfect.

Liston our driver was the BEST! Anthony was great too! The villa was perfect for our group – super clean, well maintained, plenty of room. We would choose that villa again, anytime. Our catamaran trip was a blast and we very much liked our captain and his crew. The boat is very nice, they are great people and the food/drinks were perfect. They took us to Abi Beach and it was a hit. Such a great day! Dana C.
Costa Rica

Awesome time in Costa Rica.

The Greene Group had an awesome time in Costa Rica at Villa del Montana. It was perfect for our group of eight and we loved Petra and Mauro. The best meals we ate were the two they prepared. We want to thank Primus Villas for making this possible through the Rotary Wheels Gala last year. Everything we heard from the folks you all coordinate activities with was how highly they think of you all and enjoy working with you.Molly G.

Absolutely stunning

We had a great time. The villa was absolutely stunning. Anthony was a fantastic host and was available anytime we needed him. His direction on restaurants and things to do were spot on. We look forward to using you in the future. Anthony T.
