Recent Manuel Antonio reviews

  • Best balcony view around, fast comp. internet, reasonably priced, clean

    "My husband and I just got back from a wonderful 1-week stay at this villa. Really, we couldn't have asked for anything more - from the beautiful view right from your super sized balcony, to the nice pool, to the complimentary wifi and cold AC - we were more than pleased with everything. You can tell that the owner takes good care of this property. It is very well-kept and some of the things in it you won't find at any other rental for this price. It is not a large condo, but it is much larger than your typical hotel room and, more importantly, it has all of the essentials for 2 people, including a microwave, small fridge, coffee maker, LCD TV with satellite connection, a digital safe in the closet, plenty of hangers for your closet, hair dryer in the bathroom. The linen, pillows and mattress were newer, which was very nice to have. We travel quite often and know what's out there, so believe me this is a super deal for what you get. Personally, I loved the tropical vegetation of the rainforest right outside your balcony. We also liked the amazing ocean views also right from your own balcony. If you look out into the rainforest, you will see monkeys, specially in the afternoon hours. We saw a bunch of white-face monkeys as well as titi monkeys. We didn't rent a car so ended up taking $3 taxi ride to Quepos - very easy and there are lots of them around. There is also a bus stop - going in both directions-right out-front. It goes by every 30 minutes and every 15 minutes during lunch hours. It is centrally located so you don't need a car. You can walk pretty much everywhere. In the afternoons, we walked to the local super market, which was right next door and we bought fresh vegetables and fish. The super market is small but you can find pretty much anything you can think of. That was very nice, indeed. If you are booking a tour, you have many to choose from, all of which can be planned for once you check-in at the on-site rental office. All tours will get picked up and dropped off right outside your condo. The beach was a pleasant 20 minute walk. If you don't like to walk, you can pick up the bus right outside the property and you'll be at the beach and the Manuel Antonio National Park in less than 5 minutes. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone who is interested in the conveniences of staying in a condo versus a hotel, at a great reasonable rate, with a million dollar view, and an owner who really makes sure you have a pleasant stay."

  • Great for Active Family Vacation

    "We are a family with 3 young kids and stayed in this beautiful condo for four nights in October 2014. We really enjoyed our stay and saw lots of monkeys. We saw white face monkeys, howler monkeys, titi monkeys, toucans, sloths and iguanas. Everything in the condo was in good shape and we found it to be even nicer than in the pictures. It is very tastefully decorated and has everything you need on a vacation or even on a longer stay. We really enjoyed eating breakfast on the balcony surrounded by beautiful views. It was also nice to be able to just send the kids off to the pool and watch them from the balcony (they are all good swimmers). The closest beach is really beautiful and a lot closer than we expected. With three kids it took us only about 5 minutes to walk down there and less than 10 minutes to get back uphill. There is also a great beach for surfing within a little longer hike (approx. 15-20 minutes downhill) and we saw both Titi monkeys and a Howler monkey on the way down. Besides the monkeys the high of our trip was the zipline. They picked us up right from the condo door. The tour had 11 different ziplines and the longest one was almost a mile long. The views were amazing and the lunch they offered was the best meal we had in CR. Jonathan, our concierge, was very friendly and made us feel confident that help was just a phone call away anytime we would need anything. The hotel staff were also very nice and the guards even helped us in spotting the monkeys :). This condo was definitely one of the major reasons why our vacation in Manuel Antonio was such a success. We definitely want to come back soon and hope to stay in this place again. hah! That would be the only reason for not recommending this property to others so they wouldn't block all the available dates from us :)"

  • Breathtaking! Loved the little details!

    "Very beautiful views! Every which way you look your in paradise. The ocean view, the rain forest view, animal life all around! A tropical paradise. Mary and Lee, (owners), put so much in to the little details that make your stay here so comfortable. The lighting, the hammocks, the tree house sun deck, hot tub overlooking the jungle! I'm serious when I say you are on top of the world here! There are so many ways to relax, from a refreshing splash, a hammock nap, sun deck tanning, or hot tub jet snooze at night. Mary was the perfect host as well. She can lead you finding any activities or restaurants that you may want to do. Or she will leave you alone if that's what you want. She is the sweetest woman and is very knowledgeable about the area. My wife and I vacation quite a bit and our stay at Casa Aguilita was certainly our top experience together. Be you young and looking for adventure, or just looking for quiet tranquility, this place is a perfect fit. Thank you Mary for a perfect vacation!!!"

  • Nice!!!!!!!

    "This is a very comfortable condo in a good location. Very clean. The owner was extremely helpful and welcoming! The upper bedroom is huge, the second room is very small but doable. We would stay here again!"
