Our party of ten stayed at Casa Faya Lobi for a month in January/February this year. We had a great holiday and loved the location of the house between the jungle and the ocean. Hearing howler monkeys at dawn and falling asleep to the sound of the waves. Because Manzanillo is a weekend destination and gets busy on Saturday and... More

Part of a group of nine staying at Casa Faya Lobi during Feb 2014, I was reminded of all the reasons I wanted to return: comfortable (if smallish) sleeping quarters complemented by a roomy and well-appointed common living area, with a kitchen that is normally fully functional. A well-maintained garden area attracts colorful tropical birds. Unfortunately, Patricia and Michael were... More

Reviewers seem to mix in assessments of the Faya Lobi rental house in Manzanillo and the Jungle Dreamz rental owned by the same people in the primary forest just of RECOPE Road. During February 2013 we joined three other couples at the Faya Lobi rental house in the village. Important note that completely escaped me until my arrival: you're not... More

This was a great place to spend our last couple of nights in Costa Rica. Surrounded by Jungle with Howler Monkeys, Sloths, and a few cool spiders ( non-poisonous and not aggressive) it was wonderful. Laying on the hammock in the evening listening to the sounds of the jungle was sooo relaxing. The interior of the single home has two... More

I stayed here with 2 friends for three nights and just loved it. The rooms are basic but clean and airy with comfortable beds and an ample supply of hot water. The central area of the accomodation has a well equiped kitchen and comfortable sofas.We were awoken by the howler monkeys in the morning, saw beautiful butterflys, toucans and a... More

We spent a fantastic two weeks at casa Faya Lobi and really weren't ready to leave. The owners, Michael and Patricia, are just great. Super nice people who live behind the house and are available for questions or to offer knowledge of the area but are also super respectful of your privacy. The house itself is located just a two...

I, my husband and our two little daughters stayed at Faya Lobi for 6 nights and finally found ourselves happy and at peace in Costa Rica. It was a life saver after our "Pachamama trauma" in Punta Uva which we originally chose! It is a beautiful home perfect for any one looking for comfortable, clean, well maintained accommodation in Manzanillo.... More

I spent New Years Eve at Faya Lobbi with 8 cousins/friends. It could not have been better! Each room has its own bathroom so you have enough privacy for everyone. The common area is super comfortable, nice chairs, a TV, and a well-equipped kitchen with all you need. There were extra towels and sheets if we needed them. And it... More
