Recent Manuel Antonio reviews

  • Great view

    "We enjoyed staying in this typical Tico bungalow. The view is beautiful. We could see so much vegetation and the ocean. The yard is lovely and filled with animals. We went to sleep and woke up to the sounds of birds. We even saw a sloth just down the road. The outdoor shower is great for rinsing off sandy feet. The house was clean and met our needs. It looks like the pictures posted. We had to get comfortable with the lack of glass windows however having the screens provided wonderful breezes and made us feel part of the landscape. The bed is comfortable and the kitchen has everything we needed. There are plenty of towels and two beach chairs. The house is secure with an alarm, safe and good lighting. The internet would go on and off which required us to keep resetting it. Our host Rebecca is wonderful. She has a full book with the house information and local tours and activities. She arranged several guided tours at the National Forest and Butterfly Garden. She told us the best place to park for the beach and where to eat. The house is centrally located and stores, restaurants and pharmacy are within walking distance. This is also a draw back since the road is very noisy and traffic continued until about 10 pm as well as the music at the bar across the street. We learned to adjust. Costa Rica is a beautiful country. We really enjoyed our visit."

  • Amazing,Fantastic,Spectacular

    "Dear Ken and Kim, thank you so much for allowing us into your home, Casa Pura Paz is named perfectly. These 5 days Betsy and I spent with you were absolutely the most relaxing least stressful days for us in year's. For anyone considering visiting the Manuel Antonio area, I would strongly recommend Pura Paz! Every aspect of my visit exceeded expectations. The house was exactly as it looked online, except it looks 10 times better in person. You can be as active as you want to be or just stare at the view off the deck all day. The national park is a great outing, but you will see all the wildlife right off the porch!The scenery of the surrounding area is nothing short of spectacular, there are too many outstanding restaurants to name and all of them are minutes from the house. One of the many highlights of our visit was the day trip with Jose, having a casual lunch on his farm provided a real glimpse into the culture of Costa Rica. We will be repeat visitors! Thank you again. Charlie Keiger Charlotte, NC"

  • Very beautiful. Wish I could give it a 4.5.

    "Our family of 3 just returned from 4 nights at this beautiful condo and I will start by saying we will rent it again in a heartbeat. It was wonderful but it came with a couple of negatives, (mostly worth mentioning because at almost $400/night, I feel like I need to mention them). The location is perfection. Within walking distance to a beautiful beach, 10 minutes to downtown MA, 10 minutes to Quepos. We've been visiting MA for 10 years and love this location. The view from the condo was amazing. The condo was so large, well appointed and better than the pictures. We didn't need a single thing. The pool was wonderful, the restaurant food was good and it was nice to have that restaurant on site. The staff was very friendly. We even had a monkey visit at breakfast to steal our sugar off the table in the restaurant. So fun. Willy was nice. He was very quiet and did his job by basically just dropping off the keys to us and showing us around very quickly. He requested we come early to check in because he had something to do in the afternoon. That was fine with us! The AC in the main living room broke within 3 hours of our arrival. It was heavily dripping water all over. I had texted Willy to alert him. He responded and said he would be there at 4:30pm. At 5:40 he hadn't arrived so I just text him a picture so he could see it soaked through 2 towels and asked him what to do. He then came over and turned off the unit, said someone would come the next day while we were out. That never happened but he called and said someone would be there the next day after. We declined because we wanted to relax in the condo without workers there. The ACs in the master and 2nd bedroom were also not working but we're not leaking. They just blew warm air. Thankfully, it never got to the point where it felt very hot and we were fine but I felt like I was bothering the property manager by bringing it to his attention. The relationship between the hotel and these condos seems odd. The hotel guests get breakfast included in their (cheaper) rate but it's $12 per person for the condo renters which is odd to me. The food was overpriced in general but that seems to be common now in MA. The hotel spa was an awful experience and I don't recommend the services there. I cannot fault the condo owner for this of course but if you plan to have a spa day, check out another spa. Thankful to have found this place but just had a couple bumps!"

  • Delightful

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. A lovely way to see an amazing country. Staff were great, accommodations in good condition. Private beach was a real treat. Wildlife everywhere, great views, and in a nice area. Would recommend the rain forest tour with guide for anyone who wants to see the wildlife - you can do it by yourself but you're going to miss 90% of what's lurking right in front of you. Resort has enough recognizable food to keep middle-school children from starving, but plenty of great native food in the immediate vicinity also. We felt pampered and relaxed the whole time."
