We thoroughly enjoyed staying here for 3 nights although we did have some issues. The toilet in our room did not work and wasn't fixed during our stay. Luckily the adjoining unit was empty and we could use that bathroom. The other issue we had was that Ed was smoking cigars the first day we were there and one night he fed the monkeys in the dining area so he could take a video. There were at least 20 monkeys in the room! I would much rather see a few in the trees and a few coming down to the railing. I also don't think it is wise to feed wild animals.
The room we were in was downstairs, large and bright with a large bathroom and plenty of towels. The adjoining unit was not as inviting. Decor was funky - lots of stuff! The room could have used a paint job and less knick knacks but the bed was comfortable and the ac was nice. The first night we didn't use the ac and had the windows open but the howler monkeys were so loud at 5am, we decided to close the windows. The upstairs main room and kitchen were to die for. The view was gorgeous and the wildlife was entertaining. We cooked one night and fixed breakfast every morning.
The location is right between Quepos and Manuel Antonio and an easy walk to the bus.
There was only 1 other person there the first night and we were the only ones there for 2 nights so we had the whole villa to ourselves! It is a great place to stay if you are not too fussy and certainly a good value.
