Recent Manuel Antonio reviews

  • Lovely privacy, pool, and great concierges!

    "We were here for five days escaping from the snow in Boston. Sabrina, one of the concierges, helped us set up surfing lessons for two 20 year olds and for our 8 year old kids. They had a great two hours learning with Rogelio. Then we had a tour of the national park on the next day--I would only suggest in the future that you try to get there as soon as the park opens in the morning--it was pretty busy and then very hot. Our guide Jason was great, we enjoyed the wildlife spotting and a swim at the beach to wrap it up. Yes, the monkeys did steal some of our food. Smart little dudes. The third day we went ziplining--also set up by Sabrina. Great tour and lots of fun. Highly recommended for anyone not afraid of heights (one of the kids backed out at the last minute and he spent the two hours getting a tour of the butterfly garden and feeding the basilisk lizard. He was fine). We spent the other two days just wandering the beaches--the main one that is down the hill and also the one near Shana Resort. I think it is called Biesatz or something. The house has lots of info on where to go, what to see and restaurants to go to. The other concierge Geralyn helped us get taxis and reservations at the various places for lunch and dinner. Barba Roja was our favorite. We relied on taxis for the most part and the bus. The house is located downhill from most of the restaurants so we walked up and taxied down. It is uphill from the beach and we usually walked down and then took the bus back up and then walked downhill from the bus stop. What a wonderful place--and the small house pool was awesome--perfect temperature and size for an afternoon cool down. Highly recommended."

  • The Perfect Escape!

    "As I sit here looking out the window on this cold,rainy day I am dreaming of the week I just spent at Casa Carolina. An oasis that overlooks the Manuel Antonio National Park and Pacific Ocean, this property offers a wonderful place to get away. I can not say enough about the staff. There was not one request we had that they could not fulfill. From arranging adventure tours to keeping the home spotless to making the best ceviche I have ever eaten, Willie,Lisabeth and Saul did it all and always with a smile. Casa Carolina has a central location with quick access to the marina for fishing, the beach for sunning and swimming and downtown Quepos for shopping. We also enjoyed delicious meals at nearby restaurants and spa treatments at an upscale hotel. Even with all the activities we did partake in, we found our favorite times were watching the sunset while sitting poolside at Casa Carolina."

  • Bali Ha'i!

    "Perfect bungalow with breathtaking views, beautiful natural landscaping, a fabulous private beach that made us feel like we were in "South Pacific" (even though we were more mid-Pacific) and views of the sunset and jungle from the bungalow and the infinity pool close to the bungalow. Glad we found last minute availability for Tulemar through Green Coast Rentals. Julie was very responsive to my inquiry and questions about the area and property. Though our arrival was delayed because of a problem with our rental car, Frank met us and directed us to the resort and bungalow and helped us book a tour to Manuel Antonio with an entertaining and knowledgeable guide! The bungalow was simply but nicely decorated and very clean with a phenomenal view, privacy, a comfortable bed and quiet A/C. Great maid service and throughout the resort the staff went out of their way to assist us. Though we kept missing the monkeys on the property (it was too hot for them) we heard them early mornings and saw them in the park. Saw sloths close up by the pool area, toucans, many lizards and birds. We relaxed mostly at the beach, kayaked to take in the view, and snorkeled. Everything you need right at Tulemar. This was one of the best places we have stayed in our many years of travel. Loved Costa Rica and our Tulemar bungalow!"

  • 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!"
