Mango Moon or Villas Oasis Penthouse

Traveling to CR with a 4 night stop in Manuel Antonio over New Years. Trying to decide between Mango Moon and Villas Oasis Penthouse for our family of 5. Want a convenient location since we will not have a car. Don't mind taking the bus but would like to be able to walk to places. Anyone have knowledge of these two? Have been booked at Mango Moon but now concerned with some recent not so good reviews. Thanks for the help!

Of the two locations, I prefer Mango Moon as it is a shorter walk to some of the best restaurants. It is very centrally located, but slightly off the main road, so it is not as noisy. The other location is right accross from an elementary school, next to a small church and looks over a large soccer field. Unless those activities are something you might enjoy, then this could become noisy for your visit. Enjoy!

We stayed at Mango Moon and liked it. The rooms shared balconies which we didn't love because we were looking for romantic time, but for a family it would be great. They didn't allow kids when we went, but I believe they've changed owners since then. The location is great. We were able to walk to Salsipuedes, Cafe Milagro, Barba Roja, and Agua Azul from there. You just have to be careful walking along the road. You can also go down to the beach at the base of the property if you're willing to make the hike down. Just check the tides before you go. Tulemar Bungalows is very popular if you want to explore that one.

Yes, there are many other options for a family of 4. Depending on budget, the suggestions from Roadadvisor are excellent, as well as you can check into Tulemar, or you may even want to consider a private home rental thru vrbo.com or homeaway.com. Much depends on your travel style. Enjoy!
