This lovely villa in the jungle in Manuel Antonio is absolutely Fantastic! If I could give it 6 stars I would! Ad and his staff treat you like one of their own family from the moment you arrive.
This place is definitely worth every penny you spend, whether you rent a room or you rent the entire villa ( the entire villa is VERY reasonable, I want to put a group together and go back just to enjoy the villa). The grounds that surround the villa are the real surprise. When you walk down the pathway from the street all of the worries of the day just seem to melt right off of you There are a number of species of mammals and birds that make their home around the property; which if I were an animal living in this part of Costa Rica, this is where I would hang out!!
I really enjoyed the open layout of the Villa, as my bedroom was very large and has a lovely bath area. This room could sleep 4 people very comfortably, but Ad keeps the rate very reasonable so I could enjoy it on my own. It was hot during the day, but the light wind came in the evening making it very pleasant to sleep without the air conditioning on.
There is a very large kitchen for creating your meals in while the many sitting, dining and seating areas are spaced perfectly just away from each other that you can enjoy your privacy when needed. The pools are magnificent, and Ad will teach you to take a swim just before bed to calm you after a long day of exploring the area.
Ad is the perfect host and will give you any information you will need to make your stay in Manuel Antonio a fun and exciting one. He is very good company as well, extremely intelligent, very kind and caring to his guests as well as to the staff that work with him.
We were visited by the Titi Monkeys one of the evenings I was there and that experience alone you will never have at any hotel in the area. Check out the video he posted online and see for yourself.
The only negative that I could possibly think of was that I did not book more than 4 nights!!!! I should have invited a certain special someone to enjoy this villa with as well. That is exactly what I will do the next time I visit..
Thanks Ad, Marta, Orlando and Jason, you made the final week of my visit to Costa Rica very special, one I am not soon to forget for quite some time!
