“Not the best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

The hosts are very nice.
The hotel and the rooms are nice but it was way too expensive for what it's worth.

We had a bad experience as a scorpion came to visit our room at night.
But as the all of this area is located close to the jungle- I guess it can happen anywhere.

Thanks for the critique but since you took the time to write a review and comment on the wild life why did you not mention the cute little sloth that was living in the tree right by your bedroom window.
I also want to mention that we never were able to establish what it was you saw as your first description was a crab , then a Geco, and then a guest put the idea in your head it might have been a scorpion. What ever it was it has never been seen again. But the sloth is still here .

We were a little disappointed with this property. Located in a neighborhood tucked back above the marina which is under construction, its a bit difficult to initially find. The owners were very friendly and nicely arranged for tours for us that were top notch. The room we were in was right off the parking area. It was very dark and with only one bedside lamp, a very high overhead light and an overhead light in the bathroom. To get to the bathroom you had to climb 5 or 6 irregular steps. Got to be a pain after a day, especially at night. The bathroom had a large tub, but I wouldn't take a bath in it. (I'd rip this out and just have a nice shower.) The shower in the tub, perpendicular, wasn't the greatest.
There was one chair in the room. On the patio, 2 chairs where we read in the evening. The poolCould be a nice prper area was above us, and nicely done. Breakfast was available(good food), for an additional cost.
If you want to stay somewhere that you are in the action, this is not for you. This could be a nice property, and it probably was a few years ago, just needs a little more money invested in little fixes.

Room Tip: Choose one of the rooms off the pool.

Thanks for your candid review. We many times take reviews to help us improve on the property and have since added new reading lights above the bed and will have a safe put in in May. Thanks for your input , it just makes us better. Sorry we did not meet your expectations.

We spent 5 nights at the condotel las cascades and it will be a must return spot on our next trip back to the Quepos/Manuel Antonio area.This place is located perfectly to enjoy the entire area a short walk to marina and Quepos and a quick taxi ride to the restaurants and beach.Our room was spotless and well looked after during our trip the hosts spoke english and looked after our every need.We had the opportunity to see a sloth up close and monkeys in the trees breakfest was great and the mohitos were better.We will return again.

Room Tip: each room has different things to offer depending on what you are looking for in your holiday

Great spot just outside of downtown Quepos and close to Manuel Antonio. Grounds were very relaxing for being so close to the city. Pool was great and we saw some wildlife right at our hotel. Gary and Catalina are wonderful hosts who cook up a great meal. It's a good place to relax and get advice from other guests on activities in and around the area. Highly recommend it for anyone staying in the Manuel Antonio area.

I found this place after doing a lot of research on hotels in the manuel antonio area and reading other trip advisor reviews. I wouldn't normally write a review but our experience here was just so fantastic and I felt obligated to get the word out.


A 10$ cab ride to the national park and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Its just out side of the tourist zone in quepos. I really enjoyed quepos over manuel antonio because I felt like i got to experience the culture better. While there we were able to walk around the downtown area (like 6 square blocs, 2$ cab ride and 5 minute walk) and get to meet locals and see how they live.


The owners were great and you could tell that they really enjoyed helping the guests. They would bend over backward to make sure you were having a good time.

The hotel was built into the side of the mountain and most of the rooms have a view of the ocean. The reason the hotel is called las cascadas is because a short walk down a path you will find a waterfall. You very much feel like you are in the jungle with all of the wild life. Tons of birds, lizards, frogs, and a few times a week they get monkeys passing through. If your looking for a cookie cutter hotel experience, this is not it. But that is exactly what I loved. the people the location and the Price.

We stayed 3 nights at the condotel las cascades at the end of our honeymoon. This hotel is family run and really makes you feel like home.
If you are a fishermen it's in a great location, walking distance to the marina. You are able to bring whatever you catch back to the hotel and cook it up on the BBQ.
The property is absolutely beautiful! Small, quaint very private. We stayed in the honeymoon dome and it was well worth the hike. We saw monkeys on our balcony the first day we were there, lots of wildlife.
However if you are looking for a large resort feel of a hotel this may not be for you. You really get to experience the local culture on this property. This property is very safe with safes in each room cameras and a security guard at night.
I would recommend this hotel to any one of my family or friends

This truely was the best hotel experience of my life! Our hosts, Gary & Catalina were the nicest people you could ever meet. Great breakfast in the little outdoor dining area, nice, clean rooms,...in the three night we were there we made friends with everyone else staying there. I miss sitting by the pool drinking Imperial's with everyone! Easy walking distance to the town or a quick cab ride for $2.00. You can also hop on a city bus in town and head to Manuel Antonio for 30 cents! I also loved the local bar/restaurant at the bottom of the hill...Banana Club, the food was fantastic and authentic. Where else can you look out your window and see monkeys going back and forth across the rooftops...just a great experience!!!

Room Tip: You are in a neighborhood in the rainforest so there might be noises so don't complain. The bett...
