“Relaxation heaven, Pura Vida!”
Reviewed October 29, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Spectacular views together with nature on every corner. We enjoyed all its amenities, pool,jacuzzi, outside decks,pool table etc. Great house, very central location in Manuel Antonio. Fully equipped, clean & comfy together with an awesome team that provided great service. Want a wildlife show?...all you need to do is sit back on one of the many lounge chairs and watch the monkeys entertain. Show times are early in the morning or late afternoon. To our new friends, Ricky, Fernando, Valerie & Lorena the housekeeper...you guys were great, Thank you!.. We will be back! ...Pura Vida!
ps.... tip for a good monkey show, they love the meat of the coconuts!

“Spectacular Casa Samba!!”
Reviewed August 11, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The villa had everything our group of 9 could need - 4 adults & 5 teenagers had plenty of space to spread out, enough bathrooms to make everyone happy, bedrooms were comfortable and clean, top deck was wonderful for cocktails at sunset and serious pool competitions and the swimming pool was perfect to cool down. The views were outstanding and the wildlife surrounded us - we loved it! Ricky - villa manager - was knowledgeable and always available, Roxie kept the house spotless - not easy! And Chef Hairo cooked up a wide variety of deliciously fresh meals for us every day. The service could not have been better and we hope to return one day. Thank you for a great trip! Pura Vida!!!

“10 Days in Paradise”
Reviewed April 20, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

A group of 9 of us were in Costa Rica for the Offshore World Championships and chose Casa Samba because of its proximity to the event.

We couldn't have been more pleased with the property. There was absolutely nothing wrong with it. All the rooms were great and Ricky, our concierge gave us all the information we required.

Both pools and all common rooms were beautiful.

We highly recommend using Choco the chef as much as possible. The food he prepared was excellent and was always there when required.
I'd definitely stay at Casa Samba if you're in the Quepos area.

“Casa Samba ~ Our Slice of Paradise”
Reviewed March 30, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We visited Casa Samba in March of 2015 for 10 days. Upon our arrival, our host Ricky gave us the full tour of the wonderful house and all its offerings. Ricky was always available for any needs whether booking for tours and just answering questions.

Every bedroom had something special to offer. Our kids loved the pool and were in it by 8am every morning. The upstairs deck and pool area was our afternoon reading retreat and also was center stage for each afternoon's monkey show. They enjoyed it at least as much as we did having pillow fights, wrestling matches and cooling off in the upstairs pool.

With all This, the most memorable part of the entire trip was our Chef Hairo. Of course he cooked us amazing meals and was able to manage to some specific dietary restrictions, but beyond that he was the most friendly, warm person we encountered on our entire trip. Given he's in the house for at least 4-5 hours per day, we felt blessed to have such a wonderful addition to our family. Casa Samba is blessed to have Chef Hairo and any return trip for us will require he be a part of it.

“Amaze Balls!”
Reviewed February 28, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

What a magical place, monkeys visited daily! Great location with a view to die for, house manager Ricky was super accommodating and responsive to our needs as a group of 8 who shared the house for a week. You do get a workout as there are a lot of stairs but the view makes it soo worth it! We enjoyed our time so much we didn't want to leave, get the private chef option if ya can it was fantastic!
