Recent Manuel Antonio reviews

  • Paradise!!!

    "We spent one month in Casa de las Cascadas with our 3 and 5 year old boys and it was like living in Paradise. We had family and friends over for a couple weeks and the house is big enough for 10 without feeling crowded. The villa is at a convenient distance to everything. We didn't have a car and were able to go everywhere we wanted with taxi services and public transportation. The views are spectacular and so relaxing. I could have spent the whole month just sitting ont the terrasse and watching the ocean and mountains! Will definitely return. Fell in love with Costa Rica!!!"

  • Excellent in every way

    "Casa Mono Congois a coastal view holiday rental home that has no shrtcomings. The location is excellent with great forest canopy and Pacific Ocean views. Beaches and all the linked activities may be easily reached by a short bus ride or an energetic walk. Like wise for local shops and a variety of restaurants at least one of whicch is strikingly good by any standard. If you prefer to cook at home the kitchen and dining areas are beautifully appointed giving wonderful surroundings to share a meal with family or friends. The house and deck are verry spacious and well designed and is built with careful attention both to the needs of those with disabilities and careful preservation of the local environment. As a result, there is plenty of wildlife to delight you without leaving home although Manuel Atonio National Park provdes even more are is only a short ride away. The staff are efficient, helpful and charming and really help in getting thevery best out of your visit. Very highly recommended. I intend to go back very soon"

  • Relaxing atmosphere, amazing views, super clean and reasonably priced

    "My girlfriend and I stayed 6 nights here. It was amazing! We drove from Arenal, where we stayed for 3 nights. I'm so happy that we ended up here!!! This was just a totally different experience. This penthouse is nestled into the rain forest landscape, with a perfect view of the ocean and wildlife. Most days we spent a few hours down on their beautiful beach where we could get beers, rest and relax. There were only a few other families on the beach so it was peaceful and felt very private. We took a trail (part paved part unpaved) down to the beach on two separate days and saw monkeys, iguanas and lizards. We also saw all kinds of wildlife in the jungle right on the hotel's property. The hotel staff as well as the owner were very friendly and easy to deal with. The food at the hotel restaurant was quite good, but you're in walking distance to plenty of other restaurants, so your choices of eating out are very abundant. We toured the Manuel Antonio National Park one morning - walked to it - and had massages one afternoon on the beach. We often sat at the hotel restaurant bar (awesome views from it) and chatted with the restaurant staff and owner, who were all lovely. This restaurant is probably one of the best restaurants in all of Manuel Antonio. Also, you can't go back home without going in for a dip in the pool. It is very clean, picturesque and it has a jungle feel to it. We didn't hear any construction noise as another guest mentioned here. You won't regret staying here. Also, the price is more than reasonable for what you get. The whole place felt relaxed and beautifully maintained. There are white curtains on the porch that makes you feel you are in paradise. We would definitely go back. Thank you Marc for suggesting this wonderful property and for all your gracious support. Your price is more than reasonable given what you get for it."

  • Stunning views

    "Had a great time in this property at the start of green season. We did have some unbelievable thunderstorms (according to the caretaker, Bismark, the worst he's heard in 40 years), but everything was very nice and exactly as described, so read carefully. Some notes: - the view is gorgeous--this is what sold me on the property and we weren't disappointed in the least. As a bonus, we were treated to daily sightings of toucans and capuchin monkeys. They literally play in the trees & garden between the house and the road. There's lots of other wildlife. You'll wake up to the howler monkeys for sure. - there are a lot of steps to climb up & down. There's a pulley system to help with luggage, but you'll be going up & down steps a lot. - when in doubt, ask. Bismark's entire family is VERY helpful. We had a few bad sunburns; we able to help ourselves to some aloe growing in the garden and were given some aloe-based creme. It's so nice having someone nearby to keep in eye on things and to answer questions. - the beaches are nice--Playa Biesanz is more protected (no riptides) if you have smaller children. We actually drove to the entrance way and parked on the road--it's all up-hill coming back and we wanted the kids to have energy for other stuff. - the balconies banisters are somewhat low and the floor boards are spaced kind of far apart. It's nice but something you might want to consider with kids. - Since we did arrive in green season, it's worth mentioning that although it was somewhat hot, we didn't have any issues with bugs or mosquitoes or anything. There were some gnats in the bathroom sink each morning for whatever reason, but we didn't have any issues with biting insects. We had fans that worked well (we moved the big one downstairs to the 2nd bedroom where the kids slept; that solved that problem). - the kitchen was fine and exactly. The refrigerator/freezer worked well. There's no oven, but I honestly don't want to start up an oven when I'm vacationing in the summer in the tropics. There were dishes and pots & pans, toaster, coffee maker, etc. and those all worked fine. The outdoor shower was really good to clean up after a day at the beach. Also--it's hard not to look at the other non-5 star review... but in my opinion you can't compare properties in Manuel Antonio to Arenal any more than you can compare a mountain lodge in Colorado to a beach house in Hawaii."
