Villa Perezoso
Reviewed February 18, 2014

The week I spent at Villa Perezoso in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica is what is getting me through these snowdriven winter days in NY!
Mid-January was a perfect time to get away with friends--and I cannot say enough about the villa. The accomodations were gorgeous--Balinese furnishings throughout, the views were breathtaking and the cuisine was amazing. You don't lift a finger here---with the gracious staff anticipating your every need and desire. The fun day trips to the beach, kayaking, yoga and exciting white water rafting were all organized by the oh-so-capable staff that manages Villa Perezoso. I even visited a rescue center for jungle babies..monkeys and sloths (the Villa is named after these know-how-to-relax cuties and helps to support a sloth rescue program in the rain forest) . Thanks to all of you at Villa Perezoso for such a memory making experience! This is THE place to go, for a great time away!

Room Tip: Every room is beautiful with fantastic views! Enjoy!

Our children and grandchildren booked Villa Perezoso as a surprise gift for our whole family to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary. It could not have been a more perfect venue for the 2014 New Years week. We were treated so beautifully by the staff...who truly seemed more like friends and family than staff. Victor, the house manager/concierge was tireless in his commitment to organizing complicated excursions as well as rides to nearby beaches. He even included several of our more fitness oriented family members in his morning run up and down hills and along the local beach! Ober, the super gifted chef and Randall, his affable teammate put together such great meals that we quickly abandoned any ideas of dining out at local restaurants. The cleaning personnel, lead by Cecilia did a lovely job of maintained the house daily. The twice daily appearance of white-faced and red -backed squirrel monkeys added to the absolute delight of our stay at Villa Perezoso! All of us...from the 6 year old, 2 teenaged boys, and three adult couples left feeling that we had the BEST time EVER!

Room Tip: All rooms are comfortable and beautifully appointed.

My sisters and I spent a wonderful week at the Villa and for anyone who wants to experience Costa Rica first-hand and first-class, this is the place to stay. Not only is it a visual feast for the eyes (the décor is exquisite), the property overall is beautiful. The Staff is great and so accommodating -- it's the quintessential luxury experience. Well worth the time. There's nothing like waking up to that Costa Rican sunrise, seeing the little monkeys running across the porch outside your bedroom window. There's plenty to do during the day and night, so make sure to put the Villa Perezoso on your list of places to experience!

We stayed in Villa Perezoso with a group of 11 (4 families) in November 2013, and it was an awesome experience. Here's why:

1 - The house was gorgeous, with sweeping views of the ocean and jungle
2 - Victor, Randall, Over and Cecilia - They were outstanding, always friendly and seeking to make our stay more enjoyable. They recommended tours that were high quality and were eager to adjust things based on our interests.
3 - The food - Over and Randall did a marvelous job preparing and serving delicious meals and snacks. They adjusted to our needs (we had a vegan in our group) and were eager to please. The food was always fresh and delicious. I can still taste the bbq ribs and the seafood paella in my mind. After the first meal when we arrived, we made sure to plan our excursions so that our meals would always be at the house!!!
4 - The wildlife - We saw a multitude of monkeys twice every day passing thru and stopping by the villa to say hello to us.

We would highly recommend anyone visiting Manuel Antonio to stay at Villa Perezoso. Pura Vida!!

Room Tip: All the rooms were great. Enjoy the sunrises and sunsets from the loft!

6 of us just returned from the villa. We consisted of 3 couples that needed a break from the hustle and bustle of city life with young children at home in Atlanta. The house is great and the comfort and luxury was expected and met based on past reviews. The wildlife being so close was also a good bit of fun and I can’t wait to show my young children a video of the monkeys just feet away from us. The only thing I wish is that the tree blocking the view of the pacific from the pool could be trimmed.
As others have stated the real benefit of the villa is the exceptional service you will receive from the staff. Being a smaller group we only dealt with Victor and Over each day. Victor runs a tight ship and will make sure everything you may want or need is attended to promptly and professionally. We did quite a lot in our 5 days at the villa. One beach day with Mary who was a ton of fun, Zip lining in the rain, Catamaran booze cruise, and White Water rafting our final free day. Each of the companies Victor will reserve for you all provided safe and fun adventures. Each of these providers seemed to be the most reliable and seasoned at what they do in the area. Now on to Chef Over who btw learned to cook in Spain. Over did a great job at every meal. Many different dishes are available for each meal and they will source the fresh supplies each day for you. Whatever you want just ask and Over will accommodate you. We thought we would be going out to eat quite a bit but the food was so good it really was just more relaxing to eat at the villa. Over has a laid back personality and was fun to joke around with our entire trip.
Ok a few general things. Internet is very spotty at the house and if you depend on having access be aware you may have to head up to the coffee shop which is very close by for it. Not sure if it is always like that but during our stay the entire street the villa was on had no access. To Seda’s credit she did very graciously take care of us for the inconvenience without us even asking. Alcohol is very expensive in general so make sure you get as much as you may wish for your stay at duty free. We did buy beer and took advantage of the wine list provided before we arrived. The wine was quite good and affordable. We did not take the flight from San Jose to Manual Antonio but would consider it next time. ATM is very close to Villa and the charge was only $3 US for a $500 withdrawal. You will need a good bit of cash especially when you arrive to cover transport from airport, initial supplies at house and deposit of future dinners etc. I would estimate $250 a head initially. I’d say if you are thinking of renting a car-don’t. Transportation was included with all tours and taxis were easy enough to get around.

All in all it was a great vacation at a great place and we would recommend it to anyone looking for a place in Manual Antonio to stay.

PURA VIDA!

This is why:

1. Beautiful well kept house
2. Breath taking views
3. Monkey friends
4. The epitome of comfort and relaxation
5. Costa Rican Culture and Hospitality
6. But most importantly: Victor, Randall, Over and Cecilia. The service was out of this world AMAZING! Any and everything the four of them could offer us they did. Friendly, kind hearted, and hard working to say the least. Seda (house owner) you really do have the best staff on earth!

p.s-Over (chef) will create dishes that will make you wanna SLAP YOUR MOMMA!
