Recent Manuel Antonio reviews
"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)"

"I had never been out of the country so I was a little hesitant to go to Costa Rica....but it was absolutely amazing! I never felt unsafe or uncomfortable! There is so much to do but if you want to relax and just embrace the beautiful country....this is the place! Jota, Katia and Carmen are wonderful! Every meal we had was delicious! The villa was always very clean and always had fresh towels. Jota helped us book our activities like zip lining, hiking and anything else you can think of! The beach is amazing! It's about a 15 minute hike down to your own personal beach! There are plenty of beautiful beaches around all within a 10 minute drive!
I have to say my favorite part (including my kids) was the monkeys! They are so sweet and adorable! They came to visit about 4-5 times while we were there. We also saw toucans in the morning! You can't find that kind of experience anywhere!
We can not wait to go back!!!"

Tremendous home with unbelievable views and fantastic amenities!
"Our family (2 adults and 2 teenagers) absolutely loved Casa Aguilita! The views were phenomenal from EVERYWHERE on the property. We thoroughly enjoyed relaxing in all of the outdoor living space....pool, hot tub, hammocks, outdoor dining area and sun deck. We were sure to be home for the sunsets because they were the best we've ever seen. The house was very clean, comfortable and well equipped with everything we needed. Mary (the owner) was an amazing host. She provided us with some food and drinks, helped to reserve activities for us, let us know what to expect and provided us with fantastic restaurant suggestions, menus, an activity selection guide and a great map to get to the San Jose Airport. It was comforting to know that she was close by if we needed anything, but she certainly gave us our privacy. There is so much to do in Manuel Antonio and the surrounding area. With the spectacular accommodations of Casa Aguilita, friendliness and helpfulness of Mary and many more adventures that we'd like to have in the area, we hope to return soon!"

"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!!!"
