Very helpful and accommodative staff. We were traveling with open vouchers for hotels and though no hotels were listed for Manuel Antonio when we showed up at the Villa Teca Anna gladly accepted ours for two nights. Anna showed us a nice cabana overlooking the beautiful jungle setting. Our room was clean and quiet (except for bird songs). The pool... More

We are very experienced with the hotels in this country, and took a chance on the location of this place, it seemed so tranquil and off the main street. We booked in for our last night and were told that we would be given a wake-up call before the breakfast was over, there was no call...we made it in time... More

We had a great time at the hotel. This people need to realize that they are in a third world country. This hotel is not an American style hotel. So dont expect that... if you want that then stay at the holiday inn somewhere. This hotel is a perfect and wonderful Costa Rican hotel. The staff was friendly and were... More

Do not book your honeymoon through Flight Centre, or you will end up spending the last days of your honeymoon in a dive like Villa Teca, as we did. Flight Centre booked the wrong dates for our tour and refused to refund or change it so we had to cut our Costa Rica trip short and ended here...big mistake. First... More

The hotel is set on a sloping piece of land; between the lush vegetation there is only enough space to go to the villas - no property to take a walk on at all. Each square villa is divided diagonally into two rooms. On the lower side of the villa is the door (heavy, black) and on the upper side... More

My fiance and I stayed 2 days at Hotel Villa Teca. It was a very beautiful atmosphere, however we did not like that there was not hot water and we could literally hear the people staying in the room next to us through the door that separated us. We did not like that the Hotel restaurant was ridiculously priced. I... More

We had a good stay here in December. Initial impressions weren't brilliant, basics rooms and a slightly disorganised feel to the place. However after a few days the place grew on us and overall it has a couple of big plus points. Rooms are pretty basic and small, only a sheet on the bed, which meant you're best leaving the... More

We stayed three nights during the last week of Nov, '08. Property is nicely landscaped in the rain forest about 2 K from the beach and Manuel Antonio National Park. It has a nice open air restaraunt. Breakfast was included with our stay, was decent buffet breakfast, and a group of about 20 monkeys entertained us while we ate at... More
