Recent Manuel Antonio reviews

  • Comfortable Jungle Retreat

    "Just returned from excellent vacation to Manuel Antonio region of Costa Rica. The location of this house was excellent -- close to park, beaches, and many excellent restaurants. All five of us (53,52,22,22,16) enjoyed the space of this house and having three bedrooms all with king size beds and all three with attached bathrooms (sink, mirror, shower). Tons of windows in the house, plus the deck and pool area provided excellent views of birds, butterflies, monkeys, iguanas, and geckos. One evening over a dozen monkeys were swinging in the trees "chatting" with us right off of the main deck. All sorts of interesting and large "resident" iguanas that we saw daily on driveway or by pool, plus a giant green iguana in the trees off the deck one morning. Natalia (concierge) and Mrs Flor (cook/housekeeper) were both very friendly. Our average day: coffee on the deck overlooking the forest, breakfast at Cafe Milagro or Emilios, daily activity (beach, park), late afternoon swim, shower, and then off to dinner. Enjoyed our dinners at: Cafe Milagro, Victorias, La Luna, Mirador. The first evening, we pre-arranged for Mrs Flor to prepare dinner for us -- excellent mahi mahi dinner with salad, vegetables, potatoes, and dessert. All of the Costa Rican people we interacted with were extremely friendly. Lastly, we really appreciated having separate air conditioning units in each bedroom as well as the main floor."

  • You Will Not Find Anywhere Better Than This!

    ""Wow!" is the first word we exclaimed when we arrived at this gorgeous property. "Perfect" and "Paradise" are two other words that came to mind. You will not find a better location in CR, I'm positive of it. Ken and Kim were fantastic hosts, House Manager Jose took excellent care of our every whim, and the cleaning staff kept the place spotless. The viewing deck is the only place you need to be the whole trip, because you don't want to miss seeing any of the wildlife or hearing the ocean. The splash pool was shaded, cool and beautiful. We only used the ping pong and pool tables once but what a great way to enjoy happy hour! This perfect, private sanctuary has everything you could dream of for a life-changing vacation experience. If you need to supplement your experience, Kim offered a fantastic sunset horseback ride for my daughter that she thoroughly enjoyed, and Ken set up a zipline for our whole family that was top notch - best and safest I've ever done anywhere. And as everyone else has posted, take Jose's Mangrove tour for sure! The beach is semi-private, and it is a hike to get down there, but just take some drinks and snacks and LOTS of sunscreen during low tide and enjoy the day down there. (then just have a nap after you survive the hike back up! it's not really dangerous, just tiring in the heat). Tips: Bring a book - there's nothing better than listening to the jungle and reading in a hammock. If you have a large family, bring games for the evening. You won't want to be watching TV, trust me! Get your coffee at Café Milagro right at the top of the hill - they have the best. We also thoroughly enjoyed a dinner there. Buy bananas/fruit - you'll want snacks for "jungle visitors" Bring several good cameras - trust me, everyone will be grabbing for a camera when the animals come out to play! Have Jose find you some fish - he has friends who can provide you with anything fresher than the grocery store will have. Also the ceviche is a great snack, as him about it. Pura Vida!!!"

  • The Best Vacation Ever!

    "I had never been out of the country so I was a little hesitant to go to Costa Rica....but it was absolutely amazing! I never felt unsafe or uncomfortable! There is so much to do but if you want to relax and just embrace the beautiful country....this is the place! Jota, Katia and Carmen are wonderful! Every meal we had was delicious! The villa was always very clean and always had fresh towels. Jota helped us book our activities like zip lining, hiking and anything else you can think of! The beach is amazing! It's about a 15 minute hike down to your own personal beach! There are plenty of beautiful beaches around all within a 10 minute drive! I have to say my favorite part (including my kids) was the monkeys! They are so sweet and adorable! They came to visit about 4-5 times while we were there. We also saw toucans in the morning! You can't find that kind of experience anywhere! We can not wait to go back!!!"
