Recent Manuel Antonio reviews

  • Comfortable Jungle Retreat

    "Just returned from excellent vacation to Manuel Antonio region of Costa Rica. The location of this house was excellent -- close to park, beaches, and many excellent restaurants. All five of us (53,52,22,22,16) enjoyed the space of this house and having three bedrooms all with king size beds and all three with attached bathrooms (sink, mirror, shower). Tons of windows in the house, plus the deck and pool area provided excellent views of birds, butterflies, monkeys, iguanas, and geckos. One evening over a dozen monkeys were swinging in the trees "chatting" with us right off of the main deck. All sorts of interesting and large "resident" iguanas that we saw daily on driveway or by pool, plus a giant green iguana in the trees off the deck one morning. Natalia (concierge) and Mrs Flor (cook/housekeeper) were both very friendly. Our average day: coffee on the deck overlooking the forest, breakfast at Cafe Milagro or Emilios, daily activity (beach, park), late afternoon swim, shower, and then off to dinner. Enjoyed our dinners at: Cafe Milagro, Victorias, La Luna, Mirador. The first evening, we pre-arranged for Mrs Flor to prepare dinner for us -- excellent mahi mahi dinner with salad, vegetables, potatoes, and dessert. All of the Costa Rican people we interacted with were extremely friendly. Lastly, we really appreciated having separate air conditioning units in each bedroom as well as the main floor."

  • Amazing! Casa Del Mar!

    "We loved Casa Del Mar. Beautifully decorated with a fully equipped kitchen....so much attention to detail throughout the entire Villa. Fresh cut flowers and wonderful staff. You can tell that the owners want their guests to feel like they are in a place where they could stay forever. The rest of the property is amazing as well."

  • first stay hope to return

    "This was our first trip to Costa Rica and we feel like we hit the jackpot!! It didn't take long to transition from our fast-paced Washington DC home to this magical and enchanting property. Each morning we woke to the sounds of tropical birds and beautiful vistas. We dipped in the pool throughout the day while gazing at the ocean on the and watching for the resident sloughs and white-chinned monkeys. We were there with two other couples and stayed in the apartment which was fully equipped with a small kitchen, gorgeous tiled bathroom, and beautiful native wood walls. We loved the privacy and could easily join our friends in the main house ( 30 second walk to house door). We felt pampered and had everything we needed. The main house is spectacular - all the rooms were spacious and luxurious. The living and dining rooms are totally glassed allowing constant views of the landscape and ocean. The pool just off the living room is amazing and a popular gathering spot. How glorious to dip in and jump out to the recliners and look at the ocean view or just stay in the water and soak up the sun. In addition to the main pool off the living, there is a smaller pool with a waterfall just outside one of the bedrooms and is accessible thru the sliding doors. It is great for late night dips to relax and unwind. The beaches, stores, restaurants, grocery stores and coffee houses are just down the hill via a nice walk or short car ride. Kent and Estella, the property managers, were very accommodating and helped us plan excursions (zip lining, vanilla farm (great!) and hikes to waterfalls). This is a wondeerful property and we look forward to a return visit."

  • Casa Del Mar at Tulemar

    "If you want to go to paradise and depart with a longing to stay knowing you will have a transformative experience this is where you need to go. My wife and I are nature enthusiasts and like to be around people that have a similar "warm and fuzzy" side particularly if it is genuine and sincere. This place gets into your blood immediately upon arrival. From those born to Costa Rica to those who have become expat's the experience is uniformly gracious, caring and service oriented. Our hostess, the great and wonderful Ashley, anticipated our concerns and truly went the extra mile seemingly what she just does naturally. She even arranged a chef on our last evening for an 'in bungalow' feast that rivaled the excellent on site and area restaurants. Chris (the chef) is beyond description. He is personable, a great food educator with world experience, who felt like a natural member of the family as he did on site creations we have not seen. Chris, the eggs diablo were like nothing I have ever partaken! I didn't know you could do that with anchovies! The most disappointing part of Casa Del Mar was leaving. Colleen and I are both psychiatrists and we can find no better antidepressant than the PEOPLE and resort of Casa Del Mar!!! Thank you and Bless You, Ashley, Chris and Dave (and David, our beach concierge, who never played Bocce Ball but is a natural!). We'll be back!!!"
