Recent Manuel Antonio reviews
"Lovely home, convenient to stores yet far enough away to avoid traffic and noise. All the rooms have A/C and the pool is a delightful addition. If there were any issues with the house the owner, as well as her staff ,were immensely responsive and available. The house is wi-fi, local calls are free, and the boogie boards were a terrific add-on. We used the public beach which was easily accessible, a gym at a nearby hotel called Los Altos,, and we shopped for food at the local markets. My sons' rented jet skis and we were able to rent chairs and umbrellas from "mary" at this same public beach ($6/day). There is a beautiful view of the mountains from the upper balcony and combined with our morning coffee watching the monkeys; it truly was "pura vida"."

"Imagine paradise, now imagine your home in Paradise; Casa Bella Vista! The Villa is nestled in the jungle high above the rest of Manuel Antonio,but within walking distance to restaurants, stores and an ATM. A bit of a trek to the beach but doable or a quick taxi ride with a great payoff, awesome beaches and fun restaurants with ceviche and plenty of beer or the local drink cacique.
When we got to CBV we were greeted by the wonderful smile and warm welcome of our gracious and generous host/concierge Sani Teni. We had arranged all our tours and activities in advance with Sani. All our activities were 1st class and made our stay effortless and exceptional.
CBV includes, Sani, our guard Coco who alerted us to all visiting and resident animals. 3 resident sloths, mamma,baby and male,
toucans,other birds, troops of Spider, White Face and Howler monkeys,lizards and frogs to name the coolest animals that came by.
We had maid service daily,laundry service and a chef by request. We had an amazing dinner elegantly prepared and served on our beautiful patio overlooking the infinity pool that overlooks the Pacific Ocean. The picture cannot do justice to the serene and exquisite view.
Our group of 8 recommend the Villa and the immense expertise of Sani."

"Great family vacation around fathers 85th birthday. Ten of us were easily accommodated in this spacious beautifully designed home. We arranged for a cook to prepare breakfast and dinner. Hiro the chef received high marks from all of us including my Cordon Blue Paris trained sister and her husband who for over ten years owned a haute cuisine French restaurant on the Monterey Peninsula. Ricky the property manager was always there to provide tour, restaurant and general recommendations. The house was cleaned top to bottom everyday and kept in immaculate condition. I would highly recommend Casa Samba to anyone traveling to Manuel Antonio."
