5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

My wife and I and two other couples stayed here for a week in early February 2012. We had a "Junior" suite and the other two couples shared one of the larger units on the upper floor. We all are quite picky late 50's people who have seen a good portion of the world. Mymosa was very relaxing. The highlight for us was Janet and Junior in Mymosito's restaurant on-site. The earthquake was also intriguing --- if a little scary.

Room Tip: The junior suites facing the pool (#'s 5,6,7 and 8 -I think) are wonderful. Front and back patio...

2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2011

I really wanted to give this place a better rating; the breakfast was good, the pool nice and the staff helpful. It is located within walking distance (or a short bus or taxi ride) from town and Manuel Antonia Park. Unfortunately our room was pretty bad. There were holes in some of the cushions, the sheets were stained, we were visited by large cockroaches, there was no ventilation and the room smelled of mold.

Room Tip: We where located in a room at the back of the hotel.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

I stayed at this place on room 10 from November 23 to November 27 2011. The place is great, a bit noisy as it's closed to the main road but over all the place is good for the price. The staff is helpful and very pleasant, always willing to help. The beach is five minutes away by bus ( bus stop is right in front of the place) you can drive and pay for parking too. Be sure to bring cash as there's no bank machine in Manuel Antonio there's one half way to the beach closed to Barba roja.
The pool is nice and the grounds are clean, the place is cleaned every day. They could use some new pillows but that's just minimals issues. It's perfect for families with kids although the pool is quite deep and you must keep an eye on little ones if they don't know how to swim.
There's many restaurants within walking distance, even one in the villas. Or you can stop in quepos and buy your food and cook in the villas full equipped kitchen.
I liked this place. It was good for the price.

Room Tip: The front room by the pool are nicer.

We had a wonderful stay at Villa Mymosa. Ron, Julie and Carlos were great. My kids loved the pool and the food...what more could you ask for. We parked our rental in the lot and didn't use it, instead opted for the bus system. Our excursions were planned by the staff and were everything we asked for. As for the ants...you are in the tropics. We kept all our food sealed up. Having a kitchen was key.
When we travel back to the Quepos area, we will definitly stay at Villa Mymosa.

We were getting ready to book our vacation for next year and as we always stay at Villas Mymosa, I wanted to read the latest reviews. We will again book at Villas Mymosa and will again book a Jr Villa as they are the most economical for our family. There are nicer Villas but they are more expensive. We also had an ant problem our first year there until we learned about keeping all food products put away and the counters clean, after all, this is the tropics. Finally, in response to the previous writer, on our return to Canada our final credit card bill always matched the current exchange rate on the check out date. As we are on a budget, I always check this for accuracy. The staff at Villas Mymosa have always been very helpful and accommodating to our entire family which is one of the main reasons we continue to return there.

We were initially shown room #3, garden view, when we checked in, but after seeing the room decided we could not stay in there - same reasons as a previous review. When I inquired at the front desk if there was a poolside room available, we were immediately given a poolside room which was lovely, except for all the ants in the rooms.

What I don't understand is why would they show us the lesser quality room when a better room was indeed available and could have been given to us initially upon check in? It was time consuming and frustrating to change rooms and we were extremely tired after driving 5 or more hours to get to Quepos.

We decided to leave one day early (we had booked for 5 nights and stayed 4 nights) and were not penalized for leaving early, so we complement the management on this.
