1.) There was a gate to enter in and out--first red flag. 2.) There was a terrible urinal cake smell coming from our room--it was in fact two urinal cakes being purposed as air fresheners. The smell emanated the whole place and I placed them into a cupboard. 3.) The owner/host HOVERED. Everything we did, from pool time, to eating,... More

We me, some co-workers and our boss who was coming from Seattle went there. Not only the place is not being taking care of, but also the host was a JERK with us and kick us because "he didn't felt comfortable with us" and "he didn't new what was going to happen in that room".

The owner was rude an disrespectful, we paid for 6 people initially and he charged us one more since he said we only paid for 5. Besides that we paid more extra people but he kicked us out because we were "too many" which we're all paid. At that point around 8 pm we had to rush and find a... More

We paid for 8 people to stay and the owner did not allow us, then wanted to charge us more. The place is not that great for the price and the treat from the owner leaves a lot to wish. I don't recommend this place if what you are looking for is a place where you can chill. Besides, the... More

The first thing I noticed when I entered the room was the musty odor. The smell was quite powerful and the beds felt quite damp. I figured there was a lot of mold in the room that was given to us. It was also very difficult to find the place. Neither the bus driver or a taxi driver knew where... More

Many villas in Manuel Antonio and Costa Rica now include the words Jungle Villa in their name, title or description. Also reviewers on Tripadvisor use an Alias, not a real name. This makes it impossible for us to check whether a Tripadvisor reviewer really stayed in our unique Jungle Villa. So we only respond on the verified reviews of booking... More

This is a long review, but it’s detailed and worth reading if you’re a costarrican. If you’re from somewhere else, you’ll probably fit right in this place, provided the host isn’t having a bad day. Our group (party of 16) decided to stay here for a weekend to celebrate a friend’s birthday, because last year, in October, we stayed here... More

We knew what to expect when we booked the Villa. For the price we paid we were not expecting a 5 star resort with all the amenities, and that is not what we wanted. We wanted a nice quiet place near the beach with a pool and the possibility of seeing wildlife on property. All of these things are just... More

There is no customer service at this property. The rooms are worn and smell of mildew (more than just being close to the jungle) and many of the fixtures are in disrepair. The mattresses are poor quality and thin. There is no maid service and our request to have a toilet repaired was not addressed. There are monkeys and monkey... More

They stayed 2 nights in the over sized 1050 square feet Jungle Suite which has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 3 toilets. As their review title suggests they were tired of travelling.

If you have the opportunity to stay at Jungle Villa please do so. Ad is a very knowledgeable and friendly landlord and the location is great. 4 of us ladies in our early to mid twenties stayed in the large room and found it very comfortable and peaceful. It's a beautiful and relaxing space. Ad was very accommodating.

Lauren, it was a real pleasure to host you and your friends. Your group was always optimistic, fun, active and full of humor. Communicating with your group went smooth and perfect. Visit the Jungle Villa whenever you return to Costa Rica. We will stay in contact online. I wish you and the others all the best in your careers. More
