  • 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!"

  • 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."

  • Wonderful Stay

    "Our family of six had an incredible time staying here at Villa Manuel Antonio! Let me first say that while searching, I messaged the owner, Laurent, and asked him about public transportation availability and ease as one of my sons is on crutches. Laurent called me to let me know that the transportation was fine, but that there were stairs to our floor since we were looking at the lowest level with a small yard for my children to run around in and search for lizards. He was concerned that my son would not be able to do the stairs and wanted to let me know before I booked the villa. He sent me pictures that he took of the stairs and we decided my son would be fine and continued with our booking. It was nice to see that Laurent's concern was for our comfort and enjoyment, even at the risk of us looking elsewhere if we felt our son would have difficulty on the stairs. So, back to the review... Our villa was located on the lowest level with a small yard and a view of the Pacific and the national park. The two bedrooms have king beds and there is a fold out couch in the living room. The bathrooms are large and the villa is a great place to stay. The kitchen comes with all the hardware for preparing meals yourself. The pool also has a nice view and our kids enjoyed swimming in it. During the morning it is in the sunshine, but after lunch it begins to get some shade to offer respite from the heat of the day. Our kids enjoyed the pool everyday. We also saw monkeys, a sloth, numerous birds and some colorful lizards while at the villa. The location is phenomenal. Perched on a hilltop but only steps to the bus that runs to beaches and the park in one direction, and Quepos in the other. There is no need to rent a car, just take the bus. Taxis were also easy to hail. There are also restaurants nearby (try the Falafel Bar), as well as a Bank of Costa Rica, Economy Car Rental and a small convenience store. There was not a lot of walking to these places so it was perfect for our son. It really is an ideal location for getting to wherever you need to go. As for Laurent, he stays on the property which is such a big help for finding whatever you need. He arranges tours and transportation to San Jose or wherever. He can point you in the right direction for food, groceries or any other needs. He is very friendly and a delight to talk with. It was our pleasure to meet him. We highly recommend booking your stay with Villa Manuel Antonio. You won't regret it!"

  • Awesome Stay At Casa Bella Vista

    "What a wonderful stay we had in Manual Antonia while calling Casa Bella Vista our home! Chrisi our contact for rental in the states and Sani our contact in MA made our experience just perfect! There were 4 couples traveling together, we stayed for 10 days and this was a great amount of time. We went on many adventures that Sani set up for us but we also had time to lounge and enjoy the house! Everyone we encountered would say, you are in the best home in all of MA. We did look at a few other rental homes as well as a few really nice resorts and we agree! You get fabulous breezes being at the top of the hill, remarkable views and a very large pool. We saw the most jungle wildlife right there in our yard, sloths, toucans, Hollar monkeys, white faced monkeys, little spider tee-tee monkeys just on and on! The staff is wonderful Javier and Dixie are kind, honest people, no worries about your things! Dixie washed and cleaned daily. Our chef, Lili cooked for us twice! What a treat!! She made drinks and served them to us on the rooftop terrace along with appetizers and then set a most beautiful table and served delicious foods , desserts and even would make us a banana bread for the next morning! Sani went with us on a couple of our adventures and we all felt that we had made new friends with he and Lili! You are centrally located in the town of MA and you can walk to wonderful restaurants, Grocies and the beach. We did learn to ride the bus which was .75 and this would bring you back up from the beach and take you into the town of Qupose. There was a fruit market in the town of Qupose on Friday and Saturdays, that was fun! We did not have a car and that was fine. The house is just wonderful, everything that you need. The bedrooms are air conditioned and the house is all open air. The master is really stunning, the other 3 bedrooms are adequate. You really don't stay in the rooms very much as the pool area is where we spent most of our time when not on a wonderful adventure! Sani and staff will take care of everything!! We will all be back!!"
