Thanks to the last reviewer and his note that the villas are located behind Salsipuedes, we probably would not have found the villa. So, yes, better signage would be helpful or better instructions. Also, the ad did mention that you would have access to a concierge but there wasn't anyone to help us - you are on your own. During... More

I booked this place under the name "Oceano Villas" through expedia. There was no proper street address and no signage for this place once you get there so we spent an hour looking for this place. The only street sign they have outside this place is "salsipuedes". We got there and asked about our rooms. Since it was Easter Weekend,... More

What a treat! I actually wanted to give it a 4+. Our villa at Ylang Ylang was beautiful. Everything is super clean. We watched the sun go down over the Pacific every evening on our deck. We could wash off the dirt & salt of the beach in the outdoor shower. Every appliance worked well. The ATM, bus stop, &... More

We had a pretty poor experience staying here. If you're traveling on a budget I'd recommend staying somewhere else. There are plenty of better options around. Our room was dirty and the towels were ripped and stained. Pretty gross. It was hard to find the place since their phone number doesn't work and there's no sign in front of the... More

The place had a good vibe but it was dirty, as in like the inside of the microwave had spiderwebs, the inside of the fridge was dirty, etc, etc. It seems like the administration does not make any effort to make it better. The outside facilities are pretty nice and the restaurant on the premises looks pretty nice too, we... More

The best things about our Villa were the gorgeous ocean view, the seclusion (each Villa has its own walkway and is largely on its own), the air conditioning, which worked very well, and the great price. With the view and seclusion, it is very nice to be able to sit out on the balcony and have breakfast on the little... More

Room was filthy, toilet wouldn't flush, shower wouldn't drain, floors and surfaces dirty, mis-matched thin torn sheets, one pillowcase had cartoons on it, tablecloth on table looked like someone had just eaten on it leaving crumbs, open shelf closet covered in spider webs, had to go to store and buy cleaning products first night. Curtain hanging over sink was un-hemmed... More

Loved the hammock while drinking morning coffee and enjoying the view. Must be under new management as Gilbert said he had just opened. Great value for a fully equipped kitchen, wifi, TV. First time I have had daily maid service with clean towels and the maid did the dishes, most unusual for the price. The restaurant has great happy hour... More

We LOVE our villa in Manuel Antonio while we were there. It gave us a nice, personal place to hang out after a long day in the National Park or on the beach. We were there for 7 days and the place was spacious enough not to feel claustrophobic after all of that time. There is a restaurant on the... More
