  • Magical place - best place to entertain large groups of adults and children

    "Just wanted to drop you a quick note as to the wonderful time my guests and I had at El Castillo. The place is truly amazing—much larger and more spectacular than the pictures. But it is the staff that made the trip truly magical. Annabelle, Joswey, Colon and the entire team could not have been more professional and accommodating. We had a total of 30 guest, 14 of whom were children. The house provided so much space and activities to keep the kids busy and happy. Same for the adults (my guests especially enjoyed the masseuse). The food was 1st rate and it was wonderful that the specious dining room allowed us to eat together at dinner. Colon's Thanksgiving feast was as good as grandma used to make! Also, Henry's recommendations re special activities were spot on. He arranged not only fireworks right outside our balcony, but also for a fantastic band to play in the home. Outside activities were as you would expect in Costa Rica--fishing, zip-lining, ATV driving and golfing. All transportation was arranged by the staff (including airport pickup and drop off). Every detail was flawlessly executed by Annabelle and her staff. On a scale of 1-10, several of the children rated El Castillo as a "100", a "200" and even as a "1200". I would agree that it will be extremely hard to find a better place in the world to enjoy the company of a large group I will sing the praises of El Castillo and your team to my friends and definitely want to visit again in the near future."

  • A wonderful getaway from the chaos of everyday life!

    "We enjoyed our stay at the finca. It is the perfect place to relax and unplug if you are looking to go off of the grid. Luis, Dolly, Evelio, Ruth, and the staff at the nearby Sabalo Lodge were all extremely friendly, warm, and knowledgeable. I'm sorry but I've forgotten the name of Ruth's partner, but she was kind and courteous as well. Lia was very helpful with travel tips to and from the finca. We did many great tours with Luis and Perla del Sur. Dolly is a fantastic chef! Evelio was very helpful and one of the nicest people we met! Our family of six have nothing but great memories from Finca Manglar. For future travelers: you must know that there is no hot water, no telephone, no cable, no television, and limited solar power. As long as you are aware of this before you book, you will not be disappointed. Pura Vida!"

  • Group of 13 stay over New Years

    "The house was everything that Richard, the owner described in the listing plus more. He even sent out to us before we traveled 2 local cell phone and 2 hotspots, which came in very handy as soon as we landed as well as all week long. The house was incredible. One morning we actually saw a huge group of monkeys about 10 pass right in front of the house. Location is great for doing just about everything to do in Costa Rica. Thanks again for housing a memorable vacation for 3 families."
