After much research, I finally decided on Villas Nicolas because of the other previous positive reviews. It was the last leg of our trip and I thought we would splurge on a place with a nice ocean view to end our trip with. Upon arrival we oohed and aahed over the view. However once we checked out the room, we... More

My fiance and I stayed for one night at Villas Nicolas because we chose to get married in Manuel Antonio and this hotel came highly recommended. The ocean view from our balcony and the set-up with the hammock were indeed breathtaking. Howler monkeys were literally at a stone's throw. The pool and the inner courtyard with its many exotic plants... More

We stayed for three nights and had an amazing ocean view! We were in 8up. The covered patio with hammock was definitely the highlight of our stay, especially since it rained most of the time. It was lovely to be able to sit outside and admire the scenery, but not get wet. Our room had a refrigerator and there was... More

We arrived in Quepos after a white knuckled trip over the mountains to the sea from San Jose. Actually the Nature Air puddle jumper was really great...highly recomend getting to M.Antonio this way. We booked a deluxe room, but did find the room quite "small." Would recomend a larger room. We had a small refrigerator and separate bathroom. AC worked... More

We stayed at Villas Nicolas for 2 nights at the end of our one week trip and it was one of our best hotel stays for ocean view and staff service. We decided to move here after staying at Hotel Vela Bar b/c Manuel Antonio was blazing the first day and half. We wanted A/C and a pool. Additionally, my... More

Mayra & Julio working at the hotel are helpful. They booked a park tour with us and it was the best. Picked up at the hotel, only 4 total on the tour, a back entrance, and the BEST guide. We stayed here 3 nights and were in Suite 3-up. This suite had a complete panaramic view of the ocean, plus... More

Three friends and I recently stayed at Villas Nicolas March 28-April 1st. We all four were gay males. We did a lot of research and wasnt sure how nice the hotel would be. Let me tell you, it was worth the wait! From the moment we arrived, Julio at the reception desk greeted us with a big smile and was... More

I always like to say first that I only speak for the room that I had. And ours was 6 Down. It was a fabulous room with a great balcony and really nice view. You aren't right on the beach - as most of the nicer hotels aren't - but only a 2 min. drive from it. There are good... More

Our stay at Villas Nicolas could not have been better. The staff were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. They helped us plan all our excursions for the entire week! Also, the hotel was beautiful and very quiet. It has a great location - a very short walk to delicious restaurants and close to Manuel Antonio Park. The rooms had views of... More
