Recent Manuel Antonio reviews

  • Nice home, roomy

    "This house was very good value for a stay in Manuel Antonio. We were a family of four but you could easily have fit two families into this home. It is not luxurious but has all you can need and plenty of space. Nice views (not spectacular) views, kids enjoyed the pool and we did indeed see monkeys from the balcony (though only once during our four night stay, and I was looking). The caretaker lives onsite (under the parking pad!) and was super sweet and friendly, always eager to help. He doesn't speak English but we still managed to communicate fine (and we don't speak Spanish). Our biggest complaint was the heat. We were there in March and it was stifling hot. The bedrooms have a/c but my son's room didn't work even after the caretaker tried to reset it. We just moved him in to share a room with my daughter. However, the upstairs (living areas, not bedrooms) doesn't get a breeze and was very hot. The balconies were so so on being cool. After a long day of beach and activities you want to cool off and it was a pain to have to hide in the bedroom to do it. So, though the house was wonderful, tours found us no problem, it was just ten minutes to the beach, we would not return if we were in Manuel Antonio again, we'd be looking for somewhere with a/c everywhere or a better breeze."

  • Amazing house

    "My wife and I and another couple stayed at this house for 8 nights. We could not have been happier. It is truly an amazing house in an incredible area. We had everything we needed right around the corner. Donna the owner is a wonderful host. We had some possible trouble with the volcano near the airport flying out and Donna was so nice to work with us if we needed had something happened. Fortunately nothing did but it was nice to know she was willing to try and help in any way she could. We did not have a car and there was no need for one. The bus(60 cents) is safe and very convenient or cabs for 5 dollars anywhere you would want to go are also right there. Its not on the list that is provided by the concierge but I suggest using costa rica tropical adventures for your adventures if you are staying at the house. http://www.manuelantoniorafting.com.These guys are amazing and speak very good english. They also live a few houses down from this house so they help you in any way they can. We did two days of adventures with them and they also ended up taking us out salsa dancing one night and to a locals place for dinner one night at no charge just because they are good people. They also took us deep into the jungle to do a natural hot spring while eating lunch with a local family who cultivated everything they cooked for us. It ended up being the best meal we had there. The internet is also very good in the house just in case you wanted to use it. Cant say enough good things about this place and we will be returning to this house when we go back."

  • Casa Alta: Pura Vida!

    "We are a family of 5, with our 3 children now adults (20-23). We wanted to visit Costa Rica over New Years, and Casa Alta was the perfect destination. We were met at the airport in San Jose and were brought directly to Casa Alta in an air conditioned van. We did not need a rental car while staying at Casa Alta, as all of our tours provided transportation and the beach was only a short taxi ride down the hill. We had been in contact with Natalia prior to our visit, and she set up wonderful tours for us that included zip-lining (El Santuario Canopy Adventures - don't go with any other company!), Manuel Antonio Park (saw Howler Monkeys, Squirrel Monkeys, and White Faced Monkeys), and the Damas Mangrove Estuary (a boat tour - amazing - White Faced Monkeys jumped on the roof of our boat and then back into the trees). Casa Alta is spread out over three levels - with wonderful sunset views. The pool was crystal clear and wonderful for cooling off night or day. We ate and played games both at the bar off the kitchen, and on the patio by the pool. There are two markets within a short walking distance, and a larger grocery store in Quepos (the Pali) for a larger variety. During our stay, Natalia was available by phone (there is a phone at Casa Alta), email, and/or text at all times if we ever had any questions or needed anything. This was a dream come true for our whole family to vacation together in Costa Rica, and Casa Alta was the perfect place to stay. Thank you Natalia!"
