Recent Manuel Antonio Area reviews

  • Better than ever.....Casa de Frutas

    "I am not exactly sure how you improve on "perfect" but somehow Dave and Mauricio did it on our most recent visit. The Villa still looks like it is brand new: day one condition. The grounds were immaculate. We find the shoulder seasons the very best time of year to go as it is almost like we have the park to ourselves. Plunge pool has a new look to it. The staff remembered us from our previous visit. We feel like "old friends" upon our arrival. Casa de Frutas is now on our regular rotation for our "Get Away" vacations. Pura Vida"

  • Beautiful home in Manuel Antonio away from it all

    "My wife, eight year old son and I stayed at Casa Gina from 3/25-3/31/2016 and it is a wonderful home. Situated atop a high hill in a nice gated community you feel secluded, but you're only 2 minutes away from restaurants, sights and beaches. The home is well appointed, very clean and large enough to accommodate 6 very comfortably. You have all the comforts of home with washer/dryer, full kitchen with dishwasher, BBQ, pool, safe and alarm. They have an always hot hot water system that some complained about, and at first we agreed until we figured out to keep the handles about middle and the water will stay a pretty constant warm...otherwise you will cycle between extreme heat and then cold water. My one complaint is the wifi, it is very slow and only allows for checking email, sending text messages (no pictures in those) and maybe doing some light web browsing, but don't expect pages to load quickly. Also, don't expect to stream anything either, it was enough for what we needed, but had hoped for a slightly faster connection.You can expect to see sloths, monkeys, iguanas and lots of birds in the back yard, which was nice when we'd relax at the pool. Tip, if you are going to do any tours of any kind, they will usually pick you up right from the house or at least the front gate of the community saving you from having to find places there, which is not always easy since many streets don't have signs in CR. Take the ATV tour to Rainmaker, its a great area and has a local brewery there serving fantastic beer. Gary and Gina were very easy to work with and Jeannette and Carlos (the local contacts in Costa Rica) were great. We would definitely go back again and recommend this place to anyone!!"

  • Beautiful Honeymoon

    "We could not have asked for a better honeymoon! The grounds are spacious and gorgeous with nature all around you. Wonderful views all the way to the ocean. (I have many videos of the plant and animal life in the yard) The neighbors are so far away, you feel as though you are on your own island! It was very private. In the early morning and evening, the toucans would come out and call to one another in the trees on the property. The house even provided a telescope to see into the rainforest which surrounds the house. We came during the rainy season and it did rain some, but it was so warm out that it was fun to go swimming. The house provides so much: a pool table, bbq, outdoor shower, 2 hammocks, pool lounges, workout equipment, a ping pong table, A/C, an indoor spa tub, a juicer, a t.v., telescope, an on site nature trail, 24 hour security with Juan and Raul and a wonderful, personal host, Jose, who helps you do anything you'd like to do! He can recommend and set up a catamaran adventure, zip line, a nature walk with a waterfall and pools to swim in, massages, facials, restaurants, nightlife and the list goes on and on! His knowledge of the people and culture were of such value to us. Even getting to the grocery store! There are a couple restaurants that became our go-to for an impromptu night out. And if we wanted to eat in, we popped round to the local grocery store and stocked up on goodies for the fridge. Quepos and Manuel Antonio were about a 20minute drive away. When we were craving a pizza, we went in to town for a great pie! Everything you could want was so close and almost everyone speaks English. (Although when we go back I hope to be much more fluent in Spanish) We definitely plan on coming back with friends and family. This was more than we hoped for!"

  • We found our "Cheeseburger in Paradise"

    "We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Carolina. The house was a perfect fit for our family of eight with three little ones. It was immaculately maintained and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Elisabeth, the house keeper, was wonderful! She made the best scrambled eggs I have ever had and is a professional origamist. She made the most creative paper designs on the end of every toilet paper roll in the house every day. Saul and Willie did a great job of coordinating our adventures and giving us great tips on beaches and restaurants. This was better than a 5 star luxury hotel or resort, as you had all the services and amenities of a resort but you had the privacy of having it all to yourself. We always felt very safe with 24 hour security and the gated driveway. The best part for me was the BBQ area, I was able to make the best cheeseburgers on the outside grill in the outside kitchen and we enjoyed them as we watched the sun sink into the Pacific from the infinity pool. It became known as "Cheeseburger in Paradise" time. Casa Carolina should be on everyone's bucket list."
