We stayed here for 3 1/2 weeks. The description of the villa was completely untrue. The balcony with seating and a hammock did not exist! There was only a "juliet" balcony! The ocean view was fanatstic but you weren't sitting on the balcony you were sitting in the living room. There was a hammock but to hang this up to... More

We stayed in villa 11 down. The pros were good location, on the main road close to the bus stop, restaurants and super market. The ocean view from the villa is amazing. Unfortunately for us, the cons outweighed the pros. Outdated decor, very small TV in BR area, microwave and gas range share an outlet in the kitchen. The villa... More

We loved the view. Fantastic! We saw a sloth and monkeys in the trees across from our balcony. I wish someone had reviewed the major construction project going on on top of the hotel. The banging started at 6 am each morning even on the weekend! That plus the noisy, but good, restaurant really made it hard to enjoy the... More

My husband and I visited Manuel Antonio recently and stayed here. We stayed in 8 down (Marc's place). The location is great - within walking distance to pretty much everything (grocery stores, bank, restaurants). The view is fabulous. The unit is pretty simple with mostly everything you need. Unfortunately, the pool area is tired and needs work. The fridge down... More

This place is simply falling apart. We reserved there because there weren't many options left and it seemed alright on the pictures and reviews. It was NOT alright. First of all, if you park downstairs and you stay in one of the upper rooms, you need to take like a hundred steps up, which was fine for us, but could... More

We were really pleased with our reservation at the Villas El Parque. The staff were warm and very welcoming and very helpful. They even went out of their way to post some keys to a previous place we had stayed and took the trouble to go to the nearest post office in Quepos on our behalf. That really was awesome... More

My wife and I had stayed here twenty-one years ago and loved this hotel with the beautiful terraces built into the side of the hill that overlooked the jungle and ocean of Manuel Antonio. This time we were traveling with our three kids and had reserved two rooms. The reviews had caused concern about the hotel’s upkeep, but there were... More

This hotel is located perfectly with lots of good restaurants located very close to this place. Rooms were clean and the view was too good. Bus stop is too close, You can take a bus to the Manuel antonio national park or the public beach for less than a dollar. Only problem we had was with the wifi coverage. We... More

Villas El Parque in Manuel Antonio is a very nice complex with well manicured grounds. We stayed at villa 8 up which had spectacular ocean views, probably the best out of all the other villas! The owner Marc really takes pride in keeping the villa clean and tastefully decorated. The outdoor porch with a hammock was just incredible, I loved... More
