Recent Manuel Antonio reviews

  • Simply Amazing!

    "INCREDIBLE VILLA! I would be remiss to not first mention the greatest aspect of this villa, the VIEW! The pictures simply cannot do justice to the view you will see from each floor of this villa. The villa overlooks Manuel Antonio National park which includes the an amazing ocean view. It is breathtaking, awe inspiring and truly something you can hardly believe you’re looking at. We stayed at Villa Manuel Antonio for the first week of April and everyday since our return home my family wakes up wishing we were there. The villa is very spacious, clean, and perfect for large and small groups. We stayed with a group of 25 people including 7 children. The main house and two of the condos below fit us perfectly. The Villa is perfectly located with plenty of cafes and restaurants within walking distance. The beach, national park, and Quepos are a short taxi drive away. If you plan to walk to the beach it’s about a 15-20 minute hike, but with the great views and beautiful area, it’s worth the walk. A couple from our group spotted a sloth scaling a wall on their hike and was able to stand just a few feet from it. The villa also has a nice pool and comfortable air-conditioned rooms. The daily maid and laundry service are definitely a bonus if you packed light. Lorenzo, the owner, is a larger than life character. His hospitality, charm and service were better than we could have imagined. He always has a smile on his face and a funny story to tell. Not only did he arrange for our transportation to pick us up from the airport, but he also helped us plan our day trips, buy groceries, and answered all of our random questions. On top of all that, he helped us through the whole process of planning our wedding (held on the property), from the catering, to the music, to taking great pictures for us during our wedding! To add to our great vacation were the monkeys we saw at the villa every morning…they were truly unforgettable. You’ll be able to see them mainly in the mornings and evenings when is not so hot. They come close to you and you can watch them play around the patio. My only advice would be make sure you close the front door because monkeys love to swoop in and take unattended fruit (which is amazing too by the way!). I highly recommend Lorenzo’s villa to anyone that is looking for a comfortable, family friendly place, and wants to just relax and have a good time!"

  • Home away from home

    "This property is well managed and maintained. We enjoyed both coming home to it after our days of fishing and zip lining, and just hanging out in the pool and reading on the deck. Spider monkeys swung by in the trees, a big iguana in his mating colors hung out in a pool side tree and territorial ground lizards provided entertainment. It was a wonderful place to hide out."

  • BEST vacation to date!

    "We had such a great vacation @ this beautiful home. The layout was perfect for our two families (6 kids, 4 adults). The setting was incredibly peaceful, beautiful and convenient. We so appreciated the cleanliness and comfort of the home. Our families switched rooms mid-week so that everyone could enjoy the benefits of each room! We took full advantage of the pool. We had Katia and Carmen cook for us and we were so glad - they accommodated even the pickiest eater (me - vegetarian) and were kind and gracious. We LOVED our trip to Costa Rica! I highly recommend this property."

  • Stunning views

    "Had a great time in this property at the start of green season. We did have some unbelievable thunderstorms (according to the caretaker, Bismark, the worst he's heard in 40 years), but everything was very nice and exactly as described, so read carefully. Some notes: - the view is gorgeous--this is what sold me on the property and we weren't disappointed in the least. As a bonus, we were treated to daily sightings of toucans and capuchin monkeys. They literally play in the trees & garden between the house and the road. There's lots of other wildlife. You'll wake up to the howler monkeys for sure. - there are a lot of steps to climb up & down. There's a pulley system to help with luggage, but you'll be going up & down steps a lot. - when in doubt, ask. Bismark's entire family is VERY helpful. We had a few bad sunburns; we able to help ourselves to some aloe growing in the garden and were given some aloe-based creme. It's so nice having someone nearby to keep in eye on things and to answer questions. - the beaches are nice--Playa Biesanz is more protected (no riptides) if you have smaller children. We actually drove to the entrance way and parked on the road--it's all up-hill coming back and we wanted the kids to have energy for other stuff. - the balconies banisters are somewhat low and the floor boards are spaced kind of far apart. It's nice but something you might want to consider with kids. - Since we did arrive in green season, it's worth mentioning that although it was somewhat hot, we didn't have any issues with bugs or mosquitoes or anything. There were some gnats in the bathroom sink each morning for whatever reason, but we didn't have any issues with biting insects. We had fans that worked well (we moved the big one downstairs to the 2nd bedroom where the kids slept; that solved that problem). - the kitchen was fine and exactly. The refrigerator/freezer worked well. There's no oven, but I honestly don't want to start up an oven when I'm vacationing in the summer in the tropics. There were dishes and pots & pans, toaster, coffee maker, etc. and those all worked fine. The outdoor shower was really good to clean up after a day at the beach. Also--it's hard not to look at the other non-5 star review... but in my opinion you can't compare properties in Manuel Antonio to Arenal any more than you can compare a mountain lodge in Colorado to a beach house in Hawaii."
