Recent Manuel Antonio reviews

  • Perfect location!!

    "The reviews are all right on so I'll just add that we had a terrific time and wish we could have stayed longer. This property is in a perfect location with a fabulous beach and a view to die for. Excellent restaurants are within walking distance. From our deck the first day we saw a sloth, howler and capuchin monkeys, and numerous birds including a toucan and an aracari. Birders, just sit back and let the species flock to you. A short walk down the road one evening led us to three species of monkey including the mono titi and spider monkeys. The birding here is rediculous!!! Ken and Kim were extremely helpful including providing assistance when our luggage didn't arrive the same day we did. Kim actually offered to lend us their clothes!!!! No need to book activities until you arrive and they assist with the arrangements. We also took the trip to Isla Damas with Jose and it was well worth the time to see how local Ticos live. This was a visit to a farm with a fresh, beautiful and authentic lunch, time to walk, swim and boogie board on a gorgeous beach with virtually no one else to be seen in either direction. Jose did a great job as our tour guide. We also booked a fishing excursion on the yacht. Caught four beautiful sailfish! The food was fantastic as well. We were quite pampered. A couple of items that might be helpful is that it wasn't worth our time to drag our snorkel equipement with us. They do have equipment to rent either at the house or down at Playa Biesanz. Also only one room has an ensuite bath. Two rooms share a bathroom which by the way is large enough to have a party in with a huge skylit shower. The maid service was excellent. Cecilia did our laundary and dishes every day. Kim is able to take one person horseback riding at a time and our daughter to be had a terrific time riding at sunset. Kim also arranged a horsetrip so that the whole family could ride including galloping for the experienced riders which is not typical of most trailrides. All in all a fabulous place. One last item. If you are interested in transportation from San Jose to the property I highly recommend Cosa Rica Shuttle. They are by far the best shuttle service I have ever encountered and very reasonable with English speaking drivers who let us stop wherever we wanted to along the way to buy groceries, take pictures, etc."

  • 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!!!"

  • Our own private jungle..

    "We just returned from spending a month at Brooks Hacienda....The villa more than exceeded our expectations. The view of the rainforest from the deck is spectacular; each day we discovered more jungle life & sounds. Though the ocean is only slightly visible from the deck, most mornings, you can hear the ocean waves breaking on the shore... Sloths, howler & white-faced monkeys, tropical birds graced us with their presence....The kitchen is big & modern w/most of what you need to cook a great meal...We did use the a/c in the bedroom at night; but the rest of the house was comfortable during the day...Pool is inviting & very private. Wi-fi worked well. Housekeeping once a week included laundry & Terry, the house manager, was attentive..We have been coming to Manuel Antonio for the last 11 years, & this time was truly our best time. We have already begun to plan our next trip....Pura Vida!!"

  • Great home, very comfortable!

    "I stayed at Casa Sophia with my parents on a family trip in Manuel Antonio. My mother is handicapped, and she stayed on the lower level, which was easy for her. The house has everything you need to make you feel at home. Furthermore, it's beautiful to have a perspective over the canopy. The monkeys came by nearly every day!"
