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.

Amazing views from the room and in a good location. Night tour literally across the stree with the beach and national park about 25 mins walk away beware it's hot really hot so the walk can be draining. The room was nice but overall I think it was a bit pricey for what it offered better off staying in qeupios... More

My daughter and I stayed here in March for 3 nights. The porch, grounds and pool were the highlights for us. We enjoyed the porch and hammock in the morning and then again every evening until late. The sounds and beauty of the area was intoxicating. The management is responsive but I was a little dismayed upon arrival that there... More

Ill start with how pleased we were with the room. The porch was huge, with lots of seating and a hammock. The room was cute and clean. The couch/seating area was perfect for lounging and you can see the ocean and rainforest from the bed or couch indoors due to the open floorplan. The kitchen was also clean with bar... More

Wife and I have now stayed twice at Villas Nicholas. Both times we had great rooms, the pool is fantastic, views from the rooms are fantastic, staff is very helpful and the grounds are magnificent. It is a slice of non-tourist heaven in MA that we love.

Just left here after five nights. Stayed in room 11, lower. We had a full kitchen and beautiful balcony with ocean view. We arrived about 8:00 in the evening after a very long day of travel from NY, and were thrilled to find a restaurant as part of the property who took care of us quickly. The property is beautifully... More

We spent 3 nights here, it was great. We wanted an upper room with a better view, the lower rooms are buried in dense garden foliage. We only booked 2 months before and it was high season, so we got a lower room the first night and 2 nights on top. Nice pool area, well kept gardens, Capuchine monkeys passing... More

If you're looking to relax, unwind and lose yourself in the ultimate destination of Costa Rica, this is the best place to be. We couldn't have chosen a better location to stay for our first time in CR! Nearly every guest was a return visit and we can see why. We're already planning another trip and there's not another place... More

A welcome respite in the world of busy. The dated villas bring you back to a time when things WERE slower. It's a small, comfortable hotel with great ambiance, fabulous pool area, breakfast was included, and it's close to the beach, beach shopping, and Manuel Antonio. Would stay here again and again. Just can't beat waking up to the sound... More
