We enjoyed the view, the pools, the management and staff, the other guests and the tranquil setting. This place feels like home. You can use the facilities to cook your own meals or go to nearby restaurants. Since this particular property only has 4 rooms, it was very quiet and peaceful he whole time we were there. We were able... More

Seriously, if you are wandering around Manuel Antonio, this is a quiet and beautiful hideaway from the tourist craziness of the downtown area. If you want 5-star luxury accommodations, then you should go to Las Vegas. The room was basic and the place is a bit hard to find, but the property is beautiful and quiet. The entire area is...

1.) There was a gate to enter in and out--first red flag. 2.) There was a terrible urinal cake smell coming from our room--it was in fact two urinal cakes being purposed as air fresheners. The smell emanated the whole place and I placed them into a cupboard. 3.) The owner/host HOVERED. Everything we did, from pool time, to eating,... More

The owner was rude an disrespectful, we paid for 6 people initially and he charged us one more since he said we only paid for 5. Besides that we paid more extra people but he kicked us out because we were "too many" which we're all paid. At that point around 8 pm we had to rush and find a... More

The first thing I noticed when I entered the room was the musty odor. The smell was quite powerful and the beds felt quite damp. I figured there was a lot of mold in the room that was given to us.

Many villas in Manuel Antonio and Costa Rica now include the words Jungle Villa in their name, title or description. Also reviewers on Tripadvisor use an Alias, not a real name.

This is a long review, but it’s detailed and worth reading if you’re a costarrican. If you’re from somewhere else, you’ll probably fit right in this place, provided the host isn’t having a bad day.

We knew what to expect when we booked the Villa. For the price we paid we were not expecting a 5 star resort with all the amenities, and that is not what we wanted.

“Head to Cafe Milagro for dinner, i would pass on El Avion its a tourist trap. Pricey and poor service.”

“We did not see the room off the lobby/veranda, but the basement rooms were musty and lacked any cross ventilation. Some of the basement rooms' view is blocked by laundry, and at least one of the beds in the basement is hugely uncomfortable. It felt more like a basement dorm room than a hotel room. I would avoid it.”
  • The big room of the basement was the nicest of the 4 rooms
  • Looking through the last of 4 bedrooms to the bathroom with the broken toilet
  • Looking from the 1st musty bedroom (painful bed) thru the big room and on to the 3rd & 4th rooms
  • This was the bed with the thin, worn foam mattress and the painful metal bars
