To believe that 13 people could co-habitate for 8 days was too much to hope for.Thanks to this beautiful location that became a reality.We had a great time with all the adventure tours and the magnificent pool to relax in when we returned.Although our grasp on the spanish language wasn't that good it really didn't matter.Thanks to Hector and his wife for helping when they could.Thank you Laurent for letting us enjoy your wonderful home.
WOW! What incredible view!
The pictures are beautifull, but the view you get standing on the balcony(or lying in one of numerous hammocks for that matter) is simply breathtaking.
The location is central, but at the same time you feel away from it all.
Our host, Lorenzo, was very helpful in providing info about the beach(10 minute walk), sunset bar(Barba Roja) restaurants, he even took us to the supermarket on our arrival the first night so we could buy groceries for breakfast the next morning! Talk about service!
We will surely be back
Thank you Lorenzo
Best view of Manuel Antonio Park!!!
What a place, where to begin. Newly built, very safe, extremely clean with a modern, spacious feel. This place has all the amenities of an upscale home. The view of the National park was totally unobstructed from any place on the property, it was off the main road so quite also.
The Hospitality was over the top, the owner had a menu to each restaurant in town, gave his (chef) recommendations for the best places to eat, which we promptly took after finding out he's lived here for 20+ years. He had a list of all the local tours and approximate costs. Offered to take us to get groceries on the first day, even cooked us the best Tuna dinner i've had yet and we didn't even ask him too. He speaks good english/spanish/french and italian so communication was never a problem.
The Room were very spacious (usually a king size) with A/C and fans in almost every room. The doors and window full opened to allow the ocean breezes to cool the place down, locks and alarms on all the windows and doors for ultra security. The huge veranda was where we spend most of the time enjoying the view, being visited by local Monkeys nearly each day. Satellite TV, although i don't understand Family Guy in Spanish, there was some english speaking channels. Daily room service and fresh towels. The full size kitchen was upscale with a full fridge, cutlery, plates, glasses, etc. Gas Stove, micro-wave.
We are not backpackers and not all-inclusive resort people but budget minded and willing to spend the extra for a few days of comfort in some cases. We were very surprised to find that upon arrival we were upgraded to this massive place after a small cross-booking, that was really no problem for us.
The proximity to the beach was excellent, it was a vigorous 15 minute walk down the typical tico side road to a very personal beach, only 15 minutes down the beach was the more crowed part near the national park. If you have a 4x4 i would recommend using to drive down right on the beach. It was also walking distance to most restaurants and shops, a short 5 minute drive would get you right to the park entrance.
In all, i've been to a couple all-inclusive places that pale in comparison to this place. I've been to a fair share of hotels in North America that wouldn't be as good either. I would recommend this place to large families, couples looking for alternatives to hotels and super clubs. People that want a clean safe place to stay.
The cost was extremely good, hard to beat
Exceeded our Expectations!
My family and I spent a fabulous week at Villa Manuel Antonio. We booked the spacious 7 bedroom condo which provided ample space for my husband and I as well as our teenagers. The view from the large wrap-around deck was spectacular, and the hammocks were a favorite spot to relax at the end of the day. The condo had a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, complete with a massive center island for food preparation and dining (we usually ate our breakfast here). On the nights we felt like cooking or bbq'ing we would eat our meal outside on the deck to enjoy the view and cool evening breeze. The condo is well situated near restaurants, local beaches, the Manuel Antonio National Park, and many other area attractions (i.e, Canopy Tour, Rafting, Deep Sea fishing, Spa, Snorkeling, etc.).. On those days when we felt like 'chilling', the ambiance around the infinity pool was very inviting....the coolest place to be on a hot day. The view from the pool was awesome, as were the grounds in general.....lots of lush tropical vegetation. Lorenzo (aka Laurent) was an amazing host, and we enjoyed pleasant conversations over wine together. He was responsive to our questions and any request we had during our stay. He was very helpful with arranging tours for us and providing restaurant recommendations (the sunset at Barba Roja was incredible and the food was delicious). We had a fabulous time and can't wait to go back.
Nice stay at Villa Manuel Antonio
We stayed one week in this seven room condo with our seven children and it was just amazing. The condo is fabulous with a splendid view on the sea either from the terrace or the rooms. It si very clean and close to restaurants, like the Barba Roja, bars and the beach that you reach after a 10 minute walk along a trail that goes by the condo. We went on many excursions and picnics in the Manuel Antonio State Park wich is only 5 minutes away by car. Our host was very helpful in suggesting and organizing the various activities. Also, with seven hammocks on the terrace, the kids did not have to fight to get one. They also loved to have small monkeys come and visit them on the terrace. We will surely go back in the near future.
Great place, great peoples, greatest trip!
Our one week stayed at Villa Manuel Antonio will be remembered in our greatest souvenirs. When we arrived we were amazed as the condo’s were even nicer than expected from pictures viewed on the website. Villa is beautiful, furniture’s and decoration have been chose with latest fashion taste. Condo’s on three levels is divided in a way that 12 persons could easily live together without stepping in each other’s toes. Italian style bathroom adjoining each bedroom well designed to be practical and efficient. Kitchen is so well equipped that we prefer staying and preparing our meals all together and share it on the magnificent terrace with the stunning view on the ocean next to the Manuel Antonio State Park. We had such an unforgettable sejour and host Laurent have been very dedicated in all our day to day requests. We recommend this Villa, it’s sumptuous and close to beaches, restaurants and Park . P.s. we even had a sloth visiting our terrase . Amazing!
