Recent Manuel Antonio reviews
An Incredible Family Vacation
"An incredible family vacation! All staff were exceptional. We especially miss our concierge, Chris! Everyone was incredible with our children which meant a lot. Wonderful restaurants within walking distance, private beach with towels and boogie boards at our disposal. Nido de Gansos house was amazing and was perfect for 2 families with 4 kids plus plenty more room. We will definitely be back!"

"This villa was an awesome place to stay in Manuel Antonio. It is centrally located and the views are fabulous. We stayed here for my 50th birthday, and I needed a place with at least 10 rooms. This villa was perfect for the occasion. All rooms have king-size beds and almost every room has its own bathroom. There is a kitchen for the main house and separate kitchens for the 3 two bedroom apartments below the main house. There is one room on the main level which worked out perfectly for my mother who has some difficulties with stairs. With a total of 17 people, everyone was extremely comfortable and had plenty of space.
The villa sits on top of a hill near the Hotel Mariposa. There are amazing views of Manuel Antonio National Park and the ocean from every floor. There is a large outdoor table area for dining which we used every day. There is a nice pool for when we did not want to walk down to the ocean, which was a 20 minute walk (or 5 minutes by taxi). We were also visited almost daily by the monkeys.
Laurent, the owner, was incredibly helpful. He arranged transport from San Jose for a number of my guests. He also helped to set up the activities we participated in (Catamaran Cruise, Zip-Lining, Mangrove Tour). Finally, he helped us order groceries for delivery from the local supermarket. Laurent was always around to help, but at the same time, he gave us our privacy and was never intrusive.
All in all, I would highly recommend this villa, especially for those with a large group. We had a fantastic week in Manuel Antonio and this villa was central to our experience."

"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."

"We live in CR and stay at houses in this area from time to time. We really enjoyed our stay at the house. The kids loved the pool, and the slide was a highlight. Squirrel monkeys showed up twice in 4 days. Having AC throughout the whole house was a plus, and is often not available in other houses (usually bedrooms only). We would stay again. If you have a small child, like we did (2 years old) there is a place that a child could fall over the pool by walking the ledge. So, while we were watching her swim, we also placed a chair on that walkway. Otherwise, the house is rather child safe as well, which was important to us. (gates at stairs)"
