To enjoy privacy, security and quiet time, we stayed in the #2down for $60/night, a price well worth it for the peaceful time we had. The screens kept all flying bugs out, view on heavy jungle leaves keeps the place in the shade for fresh nights. Very charming and clean. Staff very nice, pool fantastic, security present all night.

We spent two nights at Villas Nicolas in February 2010. We went with 3 kids - two teenage girls, one 8 year old girl. Our villa was wonderful. Tremendous view of the Pacific, hammock on each level, comfy beds. Bathrooms are not fancy but fine. Reception staff was great - always eager to help and make things easy. They helped... More

My wife and I just got back from our amazing trip to Costa Rica. When we arrived at Villas Nicolas we were pleasantly surprised. We stayed in 11 down. The view and the balcony were the highlight for sure. The room itself was dated but was not bad. Sadly the bed was hard and not very comfortable. The photos of... More

Villas Nicolas was actually nicer than we expected. We thought we were going basic and budget, but were pleasantly surprised. Our room was clean and decently furnished - although not posh by any means. The air conditioning was essential for a good night's sleep and the fridge came in handy for keeping cool drinks and snacks ready. The pool area... More

We spent a wonderful three nights at Villas Nicolas in December. From some of the reviews and comments on the site, we weren’t exactly sure what to expect, but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would go back in a heartbeat! As has been said before, the views and the balcony/hammock are one of the highlights. We spent a lot... More

We stayed at the Villas Nicholas for 4 days/3 nights and wish we had more time here. This is a really nice place and well worth the money. The rooms are built into a hillside over looking the ocean and while you cannot walk to the beach or ocean, the views are fantastic and the atmosphere is amazing. Our room... More

Several-time Visitor........Have always stayed in #1. Great View from balcony to the Pacific thru threes often full of colorful birds and monkeys. Love listening to the Howler monkeys at night. Excellent amenities in unit as well as the grounds. Lovely pool, and when I was there a light and delicious breakfast with several choices was available in the bar area.... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in August 2009, in the type 2 style villa. Conveniently located – a number of nice restaurants within walking distance and 5 minutes drive from the beach. Has a lovely pool and gardens and a great view to the ocean. Each villa is individually owned so décor and furniture may vary. Aircon worked great and... More

Villas Nicolas consists of beautiful "condos" is a great location close to Parque Manuel Antonio and many restaurants. It's a nice place to stay for any period of time, but due to the lack of amenities it's better for a longer stay. If you're in the area for a night or two as we were I would recommend finding a...
