Beautiful and cozy villas with a great view of the water. Hammocks on the verandas, very private with comfy furniture and beds. Beautiful landscape, pool area and close to beaches, restaurants, Manuel Antonio park and a short drive from Quepos. A tasty breakfast is included and prices are very reasonable.

The first thing which draws you in to this hotel is the views from the rooms. Each room has a large balcony with a stunning view of the ocean. The rooms are decorated differently but each has everything you need, including a fridge, space to unpack your clothes and wifi. They provide a lockable closet but you do have to... More

We stayed in a type3 suite which was big inside and had a very large balcony overlooking very lush gardens and the ocean. Beautiful. Location was close to shops and bars and restaurants but still very quiet. Pool was clean and lovely. Easy access to Manuel Antonio park as the local bus stops opposite. Breakfast wasn't great. It was expensive... More

My partner and I enjoyed a perfect stay at Villas Nicolas. We were looking forward to some relaxing time and adventuring in and around Manuel Antonio. The hotel complex is boutique-like, with a small number of condo villas, more or less stacked on the hillside. Every room is situated looking out over the hillside and to beautiful ocean views. Our... More

Our family of four with two older teenage daughters stayed in a type 6 suite. (Two separate rooms connected by an outside staircase.) It was the perfect set-up for us, we all had plenty of space, some privacy at night and two bathrooms. The accommodations were lovely and the view just cannot be beat. Julio, Alexandra and all the staff... More

This was one of our best stays in all the trips we made to Costa Rica. We had room 3 and has a perfect view with a lot of wild life literally on our deck at times. 3 types of monkey's, toucans, etc. The staff was extremely helpful and the place kept very well. The breakfast was very good. Food,... More

This place is located right in the middle of Quepos and Manuel AnTonio reserve. this makes it easy for you to travel north or south and check out all parts of the area.... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Villas Nicholas for our honeymoon. The place is beautiful! It is conveniently located on the main road near restaurants and close to the national park, but once you step onto the property it feels very private and secluded. Our room was beautiful, with an amazing porch with ocean views. It feels like being... More

This place was booked for my husband and I through a third party, but we were more than happy with the selection. It is just off of the main road but once you enter the gates it looks like paradise. Our room was upstairs so carrying the luggage up was a bit difficult but it was worth the view. We... More

A very beautiful hotel in a beautiful place! Very friendly staff and very nice room. The pool is nice, breakfast was very good and I wanted some more which was no problem. We had a room on the top floor with a beautiful view.
