Recent Manuel Antonio reviews
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!"

"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!"

""Wow!" is the first word we exclaimed when we arrived at this gorgeous property. "Perfect" and "Paradise" are two other words that came to mind.
You will not find a better location in CR, I'm positive of it.
Ken and Kim were fantastic hosts, House Manager Jose took excellent care of our every whim, and the cleaning staff kept the place spotless. The viewing deck is the only place you need to be the whole trip, because you don't want to miss seeing any of the wildlife or hearing the ocean. The splash pool was shaded, cool and beautiful. We only used the ping pong and pool tables once but what a great way to enjoy happy hour! This perfect, private sanctuary has everything you could dream of for a life-changing vacation experience. If you need to supplement your experience, Kim offered a fantastic sunset horseback ride for my daughter that she thoroughly enjoyed, and Ken set up a zipline for our whole family that was top notch - best and safest I've ever done anywhere. And as everyone else has posted, take Jose's Mangrove tour for sure! The beach is semi-private, and it is a hike to get down there, but just take some drinks and snacks and LOTS of sunscreen during low tide and enjoy the day down there. (then just have a nap after you survive the hike back up! it's not really dangerous, just tiring in the heat).
Bring a book - there's nothing better than listening to the jungle and reading in a hammock. If you have a large family, bring games for the evening. You won't want to be watching TV, trust me!
Get your coffee at Café Milagro right at the top of the hill - they have the best. We also thoroughly enjoyed a dinner there.
Buy bananas/fruit - you'll want snacks for "jungle visitors"
Bring several good cameras - trust me, everyone will be grabbing for a camera when the animals come out to play!
Have Jose find you some fish - he has friends who can provide you with anything fresher than the grocery store will have. Also the ceviche is a great snack, as him about it.

"We loved Casa Del Mar. Beautifully decorated with a fully equipped kitchen....so much attention to detail throughout the entire Villa. Fresh cut flowers and wonderful staff. You can tell that the owners want their guests to feel like they are in a place where they could stay forever. The rest of the property is amazing as well."
