"My friends and I went to Casa Dolphin for New Year's and everything was awesome. Susan is a very kind person and she always answered my mails with all the info that we needed.
The house is actually more beautiful and charming than it looks on pictures. Everything was clean and neat, the rooms are comfortable, the bathrooms are very well maintained and the kitchen has everything you need. The pool was always clean and fresh.
We spend a wonderful week and we have no complaints :)"

"Loved this place. Super comfortable house with all of the amenities and a great feel. Even nicer than the photos. Sitting areas abound, tastefully decorated, all bathrooms are ensuite, little details provided (laundry soap, coffee, tea and even bug spray - which by the way wasn't necessary in the dry season), kitchen super usable and well supplied (yes, as others have commented, the dishes are high (we saw this in other houses in Costa Rica too) but it allows a window at the sink with great views of the monkeys in the trees, we just put our dishes in the pantry to make it easier - plus the maid had set the table so many of the dishes were already down anyway). The really great thing about this place, aside from it being a great house with a nice refreshing pool, is that you see more animals while relaxing at home than we did at the Manuel Antonio Park and Rainmaker Park! Titis (endangered squirrel monkeys) came by (20-40 of them), even several babies clinging to their mommas, every morning and many evenings, we also had visits from capuchin monkeys, coatimundis, iguanas, motmots, and other beautiful birds. This helped make our trip spectacular. Jonathan, from the property management company, was awesome and very helpful when we needed it. We had a couple of hiccups and he handled them graciously and quickly. He also booked excursions for us at the same price as booking yourself yet we in no way felt pressured to book through him. The information was simply there with his phone number - call if you need his services, or not. Great place!"

"Great family vacation around fathers 85th birthday. Ten of us were easily accommodated in this spacious beautifully designed home. We arranged for a cook to prepare breakfast and dinner. Hiro the chef received high marks from all of us including my Cordon Blue Paris trained sister and her husband who for over ten years owned a haute cuisine French restaurant on the Monterey Peninsula. Ricky the property manager was always there to provide tour, restaurant and general recommendations. The house was cleaned top to bottom everyday and kept in immaculate condition. I would highly recommend Casa Samba to anyone traveling to Manuel Antonio."

"We fell in love with this house. The pictures do not do it justice.
Open air, no bugs, gorgeous views, wonderful fresh water pool. Great drinking water right from the tap....I could go on. We enjoyed the hike down to the beach, hiking to the nearby waterfall, and spending time exploring the area. The drive from town was pretty easy but I would want to do it the first time in daylight. The cook and family that look after the place are a huge part of the appeal here. They are wonderful people and the meals were something we looked forward to every time. LOVED this place!! I'm bringing my fishing rod next time. We were a family of 5 and another couple and there was plenty of room. I love the sound of surf at night but some people might want an earplug or two and a flashlight is handy."
