Recent Manuel Antonio reviews

  • 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"

  • 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."

  • Beautiful Secluded Home in Rainforest

    "Our family, including 2 teen girls and my mother, enjoyed our week at this beautiful secluded air-conditioned rental home up in the hills of Costa Rica. A 4x4 is a MUST to get up the dirt/rocky hills, but we all thought that was part of the adventure. If you like to be right in the middle of all the action, then this is probably not for you, but my family loved it. We all enjoyed adventures each day in nearby Quepos/Manuel Antonio and then returned for a swim in the pool to watch the sunset before heading out again for dinner or making dinner at the house. It is at least a 15 minute trip to get to Quepos and about 5 minutes of it is on a dirt road through African Palm Trees. The home is located in a gated area, but you literally can't see another home from it. It has beautiful views and off to the far south, you can see the Pacific Ocean in the distance. The people that manage the home live nearby and were very helpful in getting us to the home and helping us locate good restaurants. As with all homes, there were a few very minor things that the owner needs to fix, but none of it was really a big deal. (The dishwasher ran loudly, there were some scratchy animal noises in the vents, and the wood around the pool needs to be replaced.) The home is very clean and there is plenty of space for everyone to enjoy themselves. Also, the owner, was very helpful and easy to work with via phone/email prior to our visit. We would definitely stay again. We heard about a good adventure even further up the mountain that we didn't get to try, but hear is good."

  • Living with Nature in the Rain Forest

    "Our family stayed at Brooks Hacienda for a week over the 2014 Thanksgiving holiday and had a wonderful trip. As other reviews have stated, this is a great location to see the rainforest and wildlife right from the deck and poolside. During our stay we were able to see and hear all types of monkeys and birds with a beautiful backdrop of the rainforest preserve in the backyard. We prefer to stay in a quieter, more relaxing place away from the crowded resorts, so we found Brooks Hacienda to be the perfect spot. The pool is great and all the features of the kitchen, bedrooms, and bathroooms are very nice. The house was very clean and the beds are comfortable. Laundry facilities are also available. This is the first time that we have rented a place where the owners were so close by, and we found it very helpful to have Randy and Kate available for questions when we needed it. Kate hooked us up with a great guide for a day trip to the Manuel Antonio Preserve and a jungle canopy tour that included ziplining, swimming at a waterfall, horseback riding in the mountains, and a Costa Rican style lunch at Santa Juana, a small village high in the mountains. This was the best day trip and tour experience that our family has ever been on. Both tours picked us up and dropped us off at the house, so it was very convenient. Kate and Randy really went out of their way to make sure our family had a great experience and had everything we need. Kate even picked up some groceries ahead of time for us since we were arriving late. She also had great recommendations for local restaurants and we found Cafe Milagro, Emilio's Cafe, El Lagarto, and El Wagon Pizza to be very good. We would recommend a 4 wheel drive vehicle as the road is a little rough to get to the house, and it is nice to have if you want to explore any beaches or other activities that are off the main roads. This is a quiet neighborhood, so if you are looking for a party spot, this probably would not be the best fit. We can't wait to come back....Pura Vida!"
