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

This is the second review of the same 5 persons (3 adults and 2 teenager boys) who already wrote a review below. 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. The jungle villa was their last... More

I like to leave positive and honest reviews, so I'll start with the positive and honest: * The owner Ad responded quickly to our request * only 3 km to Manuel Antonio National Park * unique, spacious, open-air lobby with lots of space to hang out * open kitchen in the lobby is great for social cooking * large, multi-level...

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

First I'd like to say that we really enjoyed our stay here. This was our second time to Costa Rica but our first in the Manuel Antonio area. We came for the holidays with our kids ages 23, 22, 19 and 18. We celebrated two birthdays while here as well as Christmas. We enjoyed the area and the house. It... More

while manuel antonio can get overwhelmingly touristy, the jungle villa is both close enough so that you can be part of the action and secluded enough that if you actually feel like youre in the jungle. The place is extremely animal friendly, and we were lucky enough to be visited by monkeys 3 times during our 1 week stay. The... More

Our family stayed there for four nights. This is the second time we visited Costa Rica. I booked this place through airbnb.com and paid it in full (over $110 per night) in advance and was not refundable.

Every day we asked these guests, like we ask all other guests, whether everything was ok. Robert and his family never had any complaints. The villa has plenty of towels so just one question had been enough to solve this. Not something you have to wait for till after you leave the villa. Every guest gets before arrival the website...

I can only repeat what guests told me who stayed the past days and 2 more days in the Jungle Villa and who I read this strange review: If you visit Costa Rica for its nature and animals, you will be missing out on a great experience by not staying in the Jungle Villa.
