"Hello. I was part of the group from NY, GA, and CA that just ended their stay at Casa Fantástica. Amazing accommodations; the rooms were comfortable and the service was terrific. I especially want to extend my thanks to Chef Stephane de Pascali and sous chef Jimmy Dlarr. Every meal they prepared was better than the one before. And, to concierge Ricky, who attended to every detail of our requests with patience and finesse. These three individuals are essential elements of the experience and you would do well to do whatever is necessary to keep them in your employ.
Thank you for being part of a wonderful vacation week and helping to make the celebration of our friend Zanne’s 50-year milestone that much more memorable.

"We stayed at the VIllas El Parque for five nights in November, 2015. It was a fantastic stay. The views from the porch were amazing! If you stay, I recommend waking up with the Costa Rica alarm clocks (the howler monkeys and gray-neck wood rail) to watch the birds from the porch. Amazing! You'll see all sorts of colorful, beautiful birds. It is a great place to spend the morning drinking coffee and bird-watching. We stayed in the downstairs unit, which has a full kitchen and one bedroom. It is perfect for a couple, or a small family (there are two double beds in the room). It is within walking distance of a couple excellent restaurants and convenient to the bus, which will get you to the Manuel Antonio National Park. I highly recommend this villa!"

"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."

"If you want to go to paradise and depart with a longing to stay knowing you will have a transformative experience this is where you need to go. My wife and I are nature enthusiasts and like to be around people that have a similar "warm and fuzzy" side particularly if it is genuine and sincere. This place gets into your blood immediately upon arrival. From those born to Costa Rica to those who have become expat's the experience is uniformly gracious, caring and service oriented. Our hostess, the great and wonderful Ashley, anticipated our concerns and truly went the extra mile seemingly what she just does naturally. She even arranged a chef on our last evening for an 'in bungalow' feast that rivaled the excellent on site and area restaurants. Chris (the chef) is beyond description. He is personable, a great food educator with world experience, who felt like a natural member of the family as he did on site creations we have not seen. Chris, the eggs diablo were like nothing I have ever partaken! I didn't know you could do that with anchovies! The most disappointing part of Casa Del Mar was leaving. Colleen and I are both psychiatrists and we can find no better antidepressant than the PEOPLE and resort of Casa Del Mar!!!
Thank you and Bless You, Ashley, Chris and Dave (and David, our beach concierge, who never played Bocce Ball but is a natural!). We'll be back!!!"
