"The house was very clean and everything worked as needed. Nathalia was very helpful getting us settled in. Because of it's open "wall" design sleeping required ear plugs and eye masks, but the open design also kept the place from getting stuffy. The bugs were not bad and between the mosquito nets and fans in the bedrooms we did not have any problems.
It took the first night for my wife, two daughters (7 and 10 years old) and I to get used to the jungle sounds. Along with the geckos and frogs chirping, we were visited by some howler monkeys. Those suckers are loud! And evidently they get crazy just after a rain like kids that have been cooped up too long. Once we could identify the source of the sounds it was easy to roll over and go back to sleep.
Our kids had a great time, we did not see any other little kids visiting there, but the locals are very family oriented and we always felt safe. Make sure you visit Manzanillo, you can rent kayaks and go up a mangrove. We saw monkeys, sloths, "Jesus Christ Lizards" and lots of other cool stuff. It was very serene and shaded in the mangrove. The beach at Punta Uva is great too. The Jaguar Rescue Center is worth taking a tour of as well, and if your up for it the night tour is amazing."
