  • Truly, Paradise on the Osa

    "Tres Palmas is absolutely breathtaking. The attention to detail in respect to the lodgings were far beyond my expectations. The craftsmanship of the main building and cabanas showed all the hallmarks of skilled crafters, even down to the hand carved reliefs on all of the solid wood doors. The grandeur of Tres Palmas is further heighted by the fact that this beauty is in fact smack dab in the middle of the Jungle The surrounding jungle and trees were teaming with wildlife every day. We spotted the majority of the may species from the comfort of the negative edge pool or within a short walk from the houses. I read that this area was rich in plant and animal species but never expected it to be literally outside my bedroom door. But wait.... as if this was not enough sensory overload it got better. World renowned surf was breaking just a short, but steep hike, away. The hike down to the beaches in the mornings were fantastic. The caretaker (Marvin) and his wife (Yerlin) were first class all the way. From the superior meals they cooked for us (there were 6 in our party) to the cleanliness of the house. Marvin was also very informative about the local culture, terrain, safety precautions, pointing out wild life and just being an all around wonderful person. Thinking back now, after being back in the states for a week, all I can say is WOW!!! Words really can not describe this place. One has to immerse themselves in order to get a full understanding. THANK YOU!! Marvin, Yerlin and family."

  • A perfect spot to stay in Manuel Antonio

    "We rented the top two units at Villa Azul and it was exactly what we wanted, and better than we expected. The units are very spacious and perfect for two couples or six people. The covered decks are wonderful places to sit and take in the views and the jacuzzi is perfect for watching the sunset. We also made good use of the new pool. The location is convenient to everything. Jean is the perfect host. He can book all of your tours, and will give great recommendations on where to eat. I can't imagine finding a better spot to stay."

  • Paradise Found

    "If you're looking for that special place that makes you truly feel like you're a part of the Costa Rican landscape, then look no further than Casa Mas Mananas! The property sits high above the beautiful Pacific Ocean with endless views. It's fairly secluded, so offers you plenty of privacy while having easy access to the beach and resort below. The house is well appointed with beautiful wood furnishings perfect for relaxing while soaking in all the nearby sights and sounds! The kitchen is large and to modern standards and has a large island with additional seating for dining. We cooked most of our meals at the house and grilled using the bbq on the pool deck. We also spent several days of our holiday simply enjoying the house and large infinity pool which overlooks the ocean. Despite temperatures reaching 100 degrees F, the cool ocean breeze and ceiling fans were plenty to keep you cool, and all the bedrooms came with AC units. I read several comments about the wifi issues and lack of television, but honestly, we had no issues sharing wifi on our phones and other devices....and why would you want to watch television in the middle of paradise? I didn't miss it one bit! For as beautiful and tranquil as the property is, our holiday wouldn't have been complete without the attention of the property manager, Javier. From the moment that Javier gave us a tour of the property, to our many tours booked with him, and to sharing a few wonderful meals, Javier was simply the best! I've been lucky enough to travel the globe with work and stay in some of the nicest hotels, and Javier would rival any concierge you would find in a five-star property! He was simply a phone call away if and when we needed recommendations or assistance. His island hopping, ATV, and zip lining tours were truly a highlight of our trip. My parents, who had never traveled outside the US, were so appreciative of Javier's friendly spirit and calming nature. Our airline had lost some of our luggage, and Javier graciously acted as our main point of local contact to sort it all out. He even contacted a friend who opened up her clothing shop so we could replace some of our lost items. Javier seemed more like a member of our family, then he did the propert manager. So if you're lookkng for a stunning property that feels like it's away from it all, you have found it! My family and I are already discussing our return trip to Costa Rica and Casa Mas Mananas! Pura Vida!"
