We just returned from a week in Quepos/Manual Antonio and the Manual Antonio Estates were perfect. I have stayed there a few times about 5 years ago and to my surprise nothing had changed. The apartments are still beautiful with their own pool at the bottom of the steps. Even with the majority of them filled, it was quiet enough to keep all the windows open and still have privacy.
They are close enough to walk to Quepos for everything you need (groceries, buses, etc) and it was only 1000 colones ($2) to get a taxi home. The office was also extremely helpful in arranging tours, trips and transfers.
And one of the best parts is around 4:30 each day, we had a bunch of mono titis playing in the trees (and on the balcony). They are noisy little things when they bang on the roof, but talk about the National Geograpic in High Def, you cant believe they are so close. One even put it's hands and face on the window screen to see what we were doing inside. Too cool.
If you're not looking for a hotel scene, this is the perfect place for you and your family (or stay there alone in the studio apt)!!
