My boyfriend and I checked into Villa Nicolas 3/30/14. This was a birthday trip for him so I had emailed the staff before arriving asking for a room with a great view...they went above and beyond to help and responded very quickly through email regarding my request. Our actual room was tiny but since we weren't planning on spending much... More

We have stayed at the Villas Nicholas two different stays. Each time was over the top amazing. The food (my favorite the pork tenderloin) was exceptional, the staff was very attentive, and the pool and grounds are kept in tip top shape. We loved sitting out on our private lanai listing to the birds and watching the monkeys in the... More

After an unsuccessful deep sea fishing trip, we were sunburnt, tired and overall grumpy. We decided to treat ourselves and luckily stumbled upon Villas Nicolas. This place was great. The room was immaculate, and was nicely furnished. There was even a porch area with a hammock that some white face monkeys visited. The villa we were in was surrounded by... More

We loved this small hotel in Manuel Antonio! It couldn't have been more perfect. We stayed here two nights and just loved it. It is set in the hillside overlooking the Pacific. We had a spectacular room on the second (third?) floor with views to die for! The sunsets on the ocean were magical. After traveling for six days and... More

We had a great stay at Villas Nicolas. The view are great and the rooms nicely decorated. Monkeys were running on our terrace and around the beautiful pool area. Unfortunately, the breakfast was a bit poor. Only gallo pinto (eggs and rice) and some fruits. There was no orange juice or anything else than coffee. We would have wished some... More

Best of all is the large balcony. Also with this unit you do not have to climb any stairs. Breakfast was included ,... More

Good hotel in a great location. It's on the main road and surrounded by lots of good restaurants in easy walking distance. We stayed in room 6 down, which is on ground level. It was nicely decorated and had everything for cooking, fridge, stove, microwave, dishes, pots etc. Not that we ever used them, there are just too many great... More

We spent a week at Villas Nicolas after having originally stayed there for a few days in 2008. This time we stayed in "3 down" and it was perfect. the larger room, with living room and kitchen, were great since we were there for 7 days, and really helped make it feel like we were home. The giant balcony, my... More

We spent six nights here over Christmas week and felt at home in paradise. As other reviewers attest, the well-kept villas are comfortable, nicely furnished, and have views from the roomy verandahs that are as soothing as they are spectacular. Who couldn't love waking up to the sight of the Pacific, shuffling into the kitchen to put on some local... More
