We had room #9 which was perfect for our family of four, lots of space for everyone. The rooms were super clean, well appropriated kitchen and the property was well maintained. The view from the terrace was amazing and we were able to see monkeys swinging through the trees below one morning. As others have said, the staff are extremely friendly and willing to go out of their way to make your stay more enjoyable. We enjoyed hanging out at the pool in the afternoon and visiting with other guests and my husband had a massage one afternoon poolside. The location is at the top of the hill, easily walkable to many restaurants and the grocery store. You can also take the bus into Quepos or to the beach. if you want to do excursions, ask any of the staff and they can book for you. The Manuel Antonio guide they use, Henry was amazing. He was constantly spotting animals while other guides walked on by. Even our teenage boys who aren't easily impressed were very impressed with Villas Nicholas and can't wait to return.
