Recent Manuel Antonio reviews

  • Bali Ha'i!

    "Perfect bungalow with breathtaking views, beautiful natural landscaping, a fabulous private beach that made us feel like we were in "South Pacific" (even though we were more mid-Pacific) and views of the sunset and jungle from the bungalow and the infinity pool close to the bungalow. Glad we found last minute availability for Tulemar through Green Coast Rentals. Julie was very responsive to my inquiry and questions about the area and property. Though our arrival was delayed because of a problem with our rental car, Frank met us and directed us to the resort and bungalow and helped us book a tour to Manuel Antonio with an entertaining and knowledgeable guide! The bungalow was simply but nicely decorated and very clean with a phenomenal view, privacy, a comfortable bed and quiet A/C. Great maid service and throughout the resort the staff went out of their way to assist us. Though we kept missing the monkeys on the property (it was too hot for them) we heard them early mornings and saw them in the park. Saw sloths close up by the pool area, toucans, many lizards and birds. We relaxed mostly at the beach, kayaked to take in the view, and snorkeled. Everything you need right at Tulemar. This was one of the best places we have stayed in our many years of travel. Loved Costa Rica and our Tulemar bungalow!"

  • Living with Nature in the Rain Forest

    "Our family stayed at Brooks Hacienda for a week over the 2014 Thanksgiving holiday and had a wonderful trip. As other reviews have stated, this is a great location to see the rainforest and wildlife right from the deck and poolside. During our stay we were able to see and hear all types of monkeys and birds with a beautiful backdrop of the rainforest preserve in the backyard. We prefer to stay in a quieter, more relaxing place away from the crowded resorts, so we found Brooks Hacienda to be the perfect spot. The pool is great and all the features of the kitchen, bedrooms, and bathroooms are very nice. The house was very clean and the beds are comfortable. Laundry facilities are also available. This is the first time that we have rented a place where the owners were so close by, and we found it very helpful to have Randy and Kate available for questions when we needed it. Kate hooked us up with a great guide for a day trip to the Manuel Antonio Preserve and a jungle canopy tour that included ziplining, swimming at a waterfall, horseback riding in the mountains, and a Costa Rican style lunch at Santa Juana, a small village high in the mountains. This was the best day trip and tour experience that our family has ever been on. Both tours picked us up and dropped us off at the house, so it was very convenient. Kate and Randy really went out of their way to make sure our family had a great experience and had everything we need. Kate even picked up some groceries ahead of time for us since we were arriving late. She also had great recommendations for local restaurants and we found Cafe Milagro, Emilio's Cafe, El Lagarto, and El Wagon Pizza to be very good. We would recommend a 4 wheel drive vehicle as the road is a little rough to get to the house, and it is nice to have if you want to explore any beaches or other activities that are off the main roads. This is a quiet neighborhood, so if you are looking for a party spot, this probably would not be the best fit. We can't wait to come back....Pura Vida!"

  • Awesome Place, Great Views

    "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."

  • Incredible views!!!!!

    "We stayed with my sister and her family at this amazing house. We truly had the most memorable vacation. Every morning we were greeted by Howler, Squirrel, and white faced monkeys. The view of the ocean was spectacular and we were away from the crowds. The house was spotless everyday because of the housekeeper!!! Terry was always so helpful during the entire process of planning this trip!!! We are planning a trip for this December and while we like to go to different places, we are considering doing the same trip again. Make sure you take a look at the memory book-it is really fun to read about previous travelers experiences and write your own!!!"
