My husband and I spend our honeymoon at Villas Nicolas in Manuel Antonio from Jan 5--11th. We were placed in villa 7 Up, the "Honeymoon Suite", and it was perfect. We had a goregeous view of the jungle and the ocean from our balcony. The villa itself was perfect--tastefully decorated, comfortable, and quiet. Hot water was always available (a great... More

Villas Nicolas is a great spot to explore the Quepos/Manuel Anotonio area. This was a guys trip but would have perfect with a wife/girlfriend. Very clean rooms and bathrooms, friendly and helpful staff and majestic views of jungle/ocean. Clean pool and fun little bar area with great drinks and a terrific breakfast. Pina Coladas should not be missed. Walking distance... More

This was a good location near some of the best sunset viewing bars and restaurants, as well as relatively close to the beaches and park. These are individually-owned condos arranged stacked atop each other, most with a huge covered balcony that faces the ocean and is furnished with table, chairs and hammock. You’re up high so the view is tree... More

We had a type 3 room and it was excellent. A good bedroom area with a similar kitchen and sitting area below, with a large balcony beyond that. Waking up and being able to see the jungle and sea was a great start to the day. Lying in the hammock on the balcony there is a wonderful view of the... More

I suppose we had higher expectations given the previous reviews. I wish we had a bit more insight before booking. We had rented 2 rooms for 5 nights. One single room and one w/ kitchen. PROS: Great location near restaurants ( BTW you must try Salsipuedes as it was by far our favorite place to eat. Owners, Michael and his... More

We selected Villas Nicolas in Manuel Antonio Costa Rica as the location of our honeymoon. We were married almost a year and half ago, so you can imagine how great it felt to finally book our vacation, and yet at the same time, we felt the need to keep our fingers crossed that we made the right choice.

This place was excellent. We loved the view from our balcony, which was an beautiful view of the ocean and a thick canopy of trees below. The best day during our entire vacation was when we were rained in and stuck reading on the balcony all day. We ended up seeing three types of monkeys, woodpeckers, hummingbirds and toucans.

We stayed at Villas Nicolas during easter week and expected big crowds... although the beach was a bit crowded, the hotel itself was peaceful and rarely did we see other guests. The bartender (I can't remember her name!!) was very friendly and breakfast at the bar was wonderful :) The hotel's property is very lush and our room was clean... More

My husband, 2 daughters ages 13 & 16, and I stayed in villa #9 for a week which had everything we needed- including a pretty view of the ocean ( off in the distance) and a great jungle setting. Nice open air, adobe feel to the place. The best thing was the large porch that had a dining table and... More

We were very pleased with our stay at Villas Nicolas. Lovely property, pretty pool, great sunset view, gorgeous, large rooms and a friendly and helpful staff. I tried to think of anything negative to note and I just can't - it's all good and one of the more reasonably priced properties for the area. While there is no food on... More
