“Huge Suite and Great Breakfasts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

We spent four nights here and were greeted by a family of monkeys as we pulled into the car park. We had a two bedroom apartment which was just huge, with plenty of living space and two long balconies with briliant views. The pool was very welcome after a hot day out! The staff were always friendly and helpful and theTico breakfast the best I've had anywhere. About half way between Quepos and Manuel Antonio it suited us fine as a base for exploring the area.

I think I have stayed in almost every hotel in the area over 20 years. Of course there are more elegant very expensive places, but this is the best bang for your buck there. Super place, actually they are rented out condos, restaurant on premises. 5 minutes to Quepos, 10 minutes the other way to Manuel Antonio and the park and beach. Alot better if you have a car or else you'll be bussing or cabbing it to either, pain in the butt. Forget the reviews from 2011 or earlier. i remember what the problems were then. That's all different now. Also, Wifi is fine now. Can't imagine not liking this place. I love this place. Even the resident dog, Maggie, who will greet you with a smile.

Room Tip: They have two diff size condo's but either will handle 4 easily, the bigger ones 6 easily.

We have spent three nights there in May with our baby girl in a Junior Suite. Very spacious room with an awesome view from the balcony, e.g. from the hammock.
Only remark: Wifi only worked close to the pool/reception, not from the balcony.
(The pool area has been under construction so the pool couldn´t be used.)

Villas Mymosa was beautiful! My friend & I stayed in one of the 2 bedrooms. It was just the 2 of us, but we could have fit 7 people in there comfortably, without anyone getting on each others nerves. The back patio is the full length of the villa and is equipped with a hammock and a table and chairs. We would have our morning coffee there overlooking the forest. I loved reading in the hammock. The front patio is also the full length of the villa and has tables and chairs. We witnessed 2 types of monkeys in the palm trees feet away from us. Awesome pictures! The beds were comfortable, it was clean, our dishes were done each day by the maid service. The bathroom - glorious! The skylight was the best. Showering with the sunshine beating on you or using the restroom under the moonlight was a great experience. We only turned the TV on once to see if we could find a music channel.

Breakfast is included and the Tico's rice & beans are the best I have tasted from any country that makes rice & beans.

It is close to Quepos, so it was easy to grab items from the market. Also, close to Manuel Antonio for our beach, hiking excursions.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The upstairs rooms are closer to the treetops and therefore the best for monkey encounters.

We have been staying at the Villas Mymosa for several years. Only downfall is we did not find it sooner. You can get a taste of real Costa Rica. The owner the staff and the people that I have met when vacationing here have been superb. This place is the place to relax. Convenient to everything without the hustle and bustle. The grounds are kept immaculate as well as the rooms. The management and staff are extremely knowledegable and always look out for your best interest and safety. English and Spanish speaking staff for easy communication to help get exactly what you want. The prices are more than reasonable and we highly recommend a stay at the Mymosa.The food in the restaurant is second to none. These folks will overextend themselves to prepare a meal and provide the service you expect on vacation. Or anytime for that matter. A happy accommodating staff is always at work here.
Fishing is magnificent. Ask Ron for referrals he will not steer you wrong. Only one person not to go with and that is Chris Bernstel ( Kinembe Sportfishing ) stay away.

Enjoy

Room Tip: Have poolside or quiet view either is great, depending on what you want. Both available.

This hotel was kept up very well, clean, plenty of room in the 'condo' the kitchen is well stocked with all utensils etc.,fridge, coffee pot, toaster, microwave, blender, everything you would need to cook your own meals, even though we didnt. Hot water and good water pressure in the shower was a definite plus!!...nice porch area with a hammock and table anc chairs. the restaurant was right there and breakfast came with the room. The people working there are fantastic, and very friendly. NIce pool also.
The only reasons I didnt give them 5 stars was small stuff like requesting pool towels and getting "I will look" and nothing after that, and the biggest disappointment was when I asked them for a tour operators phone number and she said she could book that for us, how nice we thought, until we found out later that we paid 20.00 more per person for that phone call!!

We stayed at Villas Mymosa for 4 nights in December, and we had a spring villa. The hotel is located up a small hill from the road, which is a perfect location, since you don't hear the noise coming from the road, but you are only 2minutes away from the bus stop ( which is litterally in front of the hotel ). Taxi from the bus station in Quepos will cost you around 2$ which is nice. The hotel is closer to Quepos than to Manuel Antonio, so the best way to get there is by bus. Buses come every 10minutes or so and cost 50cents.

The hotel is beautiful, the pool is big and very enjoyable. A lot of the rooms have their doors opening directly to the pool area. Our villa was absolutely perfect! Big and pretty with nice paintings and lots of sitting areas. The kitchen is small and there are only a few kitchen tools which are kind of old, but all in all it was great. We had a big balcony with an outside table and a hammock, and a pretty view of palm trees and nature.

There were 2 employees at the reception at the time we were there. One of them was really helpful, even though sometimes she looked like she had enough of us asking questions. The other on the other hand, barely spoke english and always looked annoyed by our questions. In the end she wasn't really helpful.

Other thing we disliked was the wi-fi connection. It only works around the pool area, and not in the rooms, which is annoying.

If you go at this hotel, be sure to look around carefully before going up the little hill, since there is a monkey bridge not so far. You'll find those bridges across the road between Manuel Antonio and Quepos, and it's not rare to see monkeys crossing them!

All in all, it's a beautiful place, very well located and I would recommend it without a doubt.

Room Tip: We had a spring villa which was amazing!
