This was a true villa with a bedroom, bathroom, sitting room/kitchen, and very large porch overlooking the Pacific Ocean. There was a great pool with wonderful landscaping for cooling off in the afternoon. Breakfast was in the bar by the pool and served at your table or at the bar. One afternoon a troop of a couple of dozen white-faced... More

We loved Villas Nicolas! It was amazing to have a full apartment where we could cook and truly feel at home. We didn't eat the breakfast provided by the hotel, but it looked pretty standard to us (eggs, beans, rice). The staff at the hotel were friendly and helped us in calling one of our tours when they didn't show... More

This is our 4th trip to Manuel Antonio, in our humble opinion, the most beautiful place on earth. We have stayed at two other hotels in the past years, including a very high end hotel last year - meh. Our friends stayed at Villas Nicolas last year and we loved their room, so we decided to give it a try... More

Perfectly located in central Manuel Antonio and walking distance to many restaurants (although is not that safe to walk on the street with no sidewalk and winding road). The scenery is very nice with nice vegetation all around and a nice pool. The staff is kind and the breakfast is good. You can also have dinner at the hotel and... More

We absolutely loved the living space! Very spacious and clean. Loved listening to the howler monkeys in the mornings. Resident cat made us feel right at home. Julio was always helpful in answering questions and making arrangements for us. Food was decent. (Rico Tico "next door" has food to die for!!!!). Our biggest problem with Villas Nicolas was that there... More

I have travelled to Costa Rica many times since 2007 and this is my favourite spot to stay at. It is in the centre of the road from Quepos to Manuel Antonia Beach and is a short and very inexpensive bus ride to either locale. There are lots of good restaurants nearby although my favourite happens to be El Rancho... More

Villas Nicolas is situated on a hillside off of the main road between Quepos and Manuel Antonio National Park. The hotel is made up of small condos, some with kitchenettes. My family had two rooms of the suite 3 variety. These accommodations were perfect for what we needed. The hotel is located near many good restaurants and a few art... More
