Five Stars Is Not Enough
"Casa Carolina exceeded our expectations on every level! The property is a lush, pristine paradise with breathtaking views in every direction. From the moment we arrived, it was a spectacular experience. The Casa Carolina team delighted us daily by going above and beyond to offer assistance with anything imaginable - from Saul searching for surf board rentals with the teens to Lisbeth preparing local fruit plates for breakfast and Willy arranging a top-notch private guide for the Manuel Antonio national park. It is clear that they take immense personal pride in hosting guests. While there are plenty of excellent places to dine nearby, we ended up having dinner at home every night since it was so relaxing. Lisbeth’s homemade chips and guacamole were out of this world, and Roger (the personal chef) prepared four-course culinary masterpieces that would rival the finest restaurant. In addition to exploring the rain forest and "shredding" some waves, we ventured out into town nearly every day and have never met local residents more friendly and helpful than the people of Quepos. This is truly a trip we'll remember forever. Thank you Casa Carolina!"

"What a wonderful week we had at Tulemar. Our spacious 3-bedroom villa was clean, convenient, and tastefully decorated with stunning views of the jungle and ocean. There was plenty of room for all eight of us (4 adults and 4 kids). Loved having morning coffee on our balcony, and really enjoyed the huge gorgeous showers. The kitchen was well equipped. Thanks to our concierge, Bryan, for helping us with reservations and logistics, Christopher for an amazing dinner, Daniela for the best mojitos ever, and David for his excellent service at the beach and his attentiveness to the our kids. Staff everywhere are friendly and take the time to point out wildlife - we saw sloth and monkeys daily. The beach is a bit of a hike but we enjoyed the walk and saw some great wildlife along the way. A shuttle is available for those who can't tolerate hilly terrain. Overall, an amazing experience that I would recommend without reservation."

"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."
