My husband and I honeymooned here a couple of weeks ago and could not have been happier. The villa was very nice and clean, though we had booked so many activities we didn't stay there often. Shelley was amazing! She stayed in touch with us everyday making sure we knew our plans for the next day, and had fun on... More

Our best vacation ever! The EOC is perfectly located for chilling at the beach or anything else you want to experience in Costa Rica. It will accommodate any kind of group, family or friends. Bobby and Shelley are the perfect hosts, always kind and attentive to any question guests may have. Travel to a foreign country can sometimes be daunting,... More

We stayed at the Espadilla Ocean Club for 7 nights and are already planning a return trip. Very clean, spacious, conveniently located, and beautifully decorated. In addition, you simply cannot ask for more gracious hosts than Bobby and Shelley. The weather is warm and so are all of the people--from the cleaning ladies to the cab drivers(shout out to Coco!)...

My wife and 3 boys and I stayed at EOC near Easter this year. We have never seen anything like the interior of this place. All of the units are different which impressed us and why we think of the homes as more"art" than "craft." Apparently Shelley has true talent. This is our second visit to Manuel Antonio but the...

Where to begin?! We spent the beginning of our week in Costa Rica being adventurous tourists and were looking forward to relaxing a bit when we arrived at EOC. They contacted us a few days before our arrival and offered to stock the fridge for us. We didn't, but when we arrived, Shelly arranged for Coco (the driver they recommend)... More

We had 15 family members drop into Espadillia Ocean Club ("The EOC"). Shel and Bobby were fantastic through the pre-reservation "exploration phase", pre-arrival, arrival and stay, and departure. Shel helped arrange all of our activities and provided great local advice on how to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Especially important were her ability to send us to the... More

Great place to stay, smack dab in the middle of Manuel Antonio on the the beach, peaceful, great service and wildlife everywhere. No TV's, dishes and amenities were kinda cheap, beds were a little too firm, no televisions, and internet was 3rd world. This actually made my family have conversations, bond, and read these things called books. We didn't want... More
