My partner, Zach, and I stayed here on the second leg of our trip. The hotel was beautiful and the staff was always helpful! The stone trails down to the jacuzzi were beautiful and the infinity pool was absolutely breathtaking! The only downside to this property was its lack of an all-day bar or an on-site restaurant. Other than that... More

Amber & I stumbled on this resort by pure luck, Hotel Villa Roca in Manuel Antonio is a gay owned and operated by 2 great owners Armin & Jorn, who truly understand the hospitality business on a whole new level. This wonder of a hotel resort is nestled on a side of a mountain 200+ feet above sea level with... More

My partner and I stayed at Villa Roca for 3 nights and it was our first time at a LGBT hotel. The views of the Pacific Ocean were outstanding from our room (#2). We even spotted a few monkeys right next to our room. No complaints regarding the room - I loved the Mediterranean style villa design, very spacious, clean... More

My partner and I just returned from our first trip to Manuel Antonio and first stay at Hotel Villa Roca. We absolutely loved this very charming hotel. As others have mentioned, the staff is very friendly and helpful (helped us book an awesome zip line excursion, gave great restaurant recommendations). Our room was clean and comfy. Plenty of space, flat... More

No review can do this hotel justice. A tropical paradise. A gay hotel without the attitude. The friendly staff. Piña coladas by the pool. I arrived here on my own and left with like 10 new friends because I spent all my time by that marvelous infinity pool. I will be back!

Villa Roca was the first hotel I stepped foot into on my very first day in Costa Rica and the BEST introduction to Costa Rican hospitality. I arrived ridiculously early into San Jose and arrived hours before my room was ready but was greeted with smiles, a place to store my luggage and a shower to freshen up, along with... More

I went to Villa Roca solo in July 2014. This is my second trip to Quepos/Manuel Antonio, but my first to Villa Roca, and I'll return here next time when I visit the area. I stayed in two different rooms (hint: make reservations early!), # 9 and # 4. Even though #4 was smaller (the smallest they offer, I believe),... More

One of my favorite places on the planet. Quepos is a beautiful beach destination on the Pacific side of Costa Rica. Despite the edge of the jungle location, Villa Roca has well-appointed, clean rooms, excellent air conditioning and an extremely courteous and helpful staff. This is really the only remaining gay hotel in Quepos and it does a great job... More

Villa Roca is truly one of the best hotels my partner and I have stayed. The staff is amazing, the pool and view are breathtaking, the rooms are basic, but perfect, and the chance to be close to wildlife was better for us than in the park. We cannot wait to return soon and will recommend this to anyone seeking... More
