Recent Manuel Antonio reviews

  • This is Paradise

    "My girlfriend and I have been here nearly one month and it is fabulous. The location is perfect for going into town or the beach. Easy, inexpensive, reliable bus transportation or a quick cab ride. The monkeys have visited, the birds are very vocal and we have an iguana who has taken permanent residence on the patio roof..the amenities are perfect. The heated, locked security closet is a real perk and having a washer and dryer makes the visit even more stress free. The Hotel California behind the complex offers amazing sunsets, happy hour specials, and wonderful food. As two women traveling alone we couldn't feel more safe and secure. Lance and Letty are great people as well as awesome musicians...they rock it every Saturday in Quepos...I did a lot of research on choosing a place to stay for an extended period and I know I got the best value..Pura Vida!"

  • Fantastic Bungalow in Manuel Antonio!

    "My husband and I booked at 3 night stay at Casa Kaylen, for our Manuel Antonio portion of our Costa Rica trip. Luckily, we were able to add an extra night on to our trip, and arrived a day early! Best decision ever! We loved the bungalow, it suited our needs perfectly. The house is very charming, inside and out...the photos are true to life. The grounds are gorgeous and the bungalow has a great open design, and is nicely decorated, perfect touches as far as furnishings and artwork.... with everything you'd need for a nice vacation in paradise. We really enjoyed the charm of the bungalow, as well as the beautiful tropical grounds (such amazing plants! like from a dr seuss book!) and the view of the ocean. The house was very secure, as others have mentioned...you will not be worried about your valuables and electronics if you lock up accordingly! There are two beaches about a 20-30 minute walk from the house...very hilly, as is everything in MA, but doable for able-bodied people. Only a short walk to restaurants, cafes, a bank and a mini-grocery store....the house is perfectly located. Monkeys occasionally visit in the trees, which is very fun! Some car/truck traffic noise from the nearby road...it was noted in a previous review, but it was just louder than I was expecting! Overall, we had a great stay and a fantastic vacation! The only thing it lacks would be a hammock (or a hot tub) on the deck overlooking the forest and ocean! Just a super place, great memories, felt like we had our own little slice of paradise. Thank you!! Would definitely recommend this place for couples or a very small family of 3, 4 would be tight. I highly recommend taking advantage of the kitchen facilities in the house, and maybe stock up on breakfast/lunch supplies, as the restaurants/cafes in MA are VERY expensive!"

  • 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."

  • Beautiful views and amazing wildlife

    "The driveway is a bit steep but the pay off is the view. Beautiful view of the ocean and surrounding jungle. We heard the Howler Monkeys on our first day and that was just the start. We had white-face capuchin monkeys, squirrell monkeys and toucans all around us and we didn't even have to leave the deck! You can walk to a number of restaurants. Our favorite was Claro Que Si Seafood Restaurant. We did a guided walk in the park, well worth paying for a guide, you will see things with a guide that you would never see on your own. The beach in the park is a bit crowded but very nice. I wish we could have stayed longer."
