Recent Manuel Antonio reviews
A little slice of Heaven
"This was a wonderful property. Carlos met us in Quepos and took us to the property, which was a real blessing. The property was well maintained and very nice. The pool was a wonderful place to hang out and enjoy the sights and sounds of the rain forest. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. The housekeeping mid week, was a pleasant surprise. We had zero problems, and thoroughly loved our experience."

"This villa was an awesome place to stay in Manuel Antonio. It is centrally located and the views are fabulous. We stayed here for my 50th birthday, and I needed a place with at least 10 rooms. This villa was perfect for the occasion. All rooms have king-size beds and almost every room has its own bathroom. There is a kitchen for the main house and separate kitchens for the 3 two bedroom apartments below the main house. There is one room on the main level which worked out perfectly for my mother who has some difficulties with stairs. With a total of 17 people, everyone was extremely comfortable and had plenty of space.
The villa sits on top of a hill near the Hotel Mariposa. There are amazing views of Manuel Antonio National Park and the ocean from every floor. There is a large outdoor table area for dining which we used every day. There is a nice pool for when we did not want to walk down to the ocean, which was a 20 minute walk (or 5 minutes by taxi). We were also visited almost daily by the monkeys.
Laurent, the owner, was incredibly helpful. He arranged transport from San Jose for a number of my guests. He also helped to set up the activities we participated in (Catamaran Cruise, Zip-Lining, Mangrove Tour). Finally, he helped us order groceries for delivery from the local supermarket. Laurent was always around to help, but at the same time, he gave us our privacy and was never intrusive.
All in all, I would highly recommend this villa, especially for those with a large group. We had a fantastic week in Manuel Antonio and this villa was central to our experience."

"The villa served us very well, providing the perfect venue for many wonderful memories of our week at Manuel Antonio. We loved being able to cook and eat in, and spend hours in the pool. Natalia was spot on in scheduling transport and tours. Mrs. Flor kept the house spotless. Half way through the week I realized how relaxed we all were--thanks to the house. We absolutely recommend Casa Alta, and would love to go back."

"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!"
