We just returned back from a week long vacation in Manuel Antonio. We absolutely loved every bit of our stay in Jungle Creek. Manuel Antonio can get touristy especially around the busy holiday season - but Jungle creek feels like a tropical paradise away from all of that. We travelled with 2 young kids - ages 2 and 8 and the Mono Vista unit was perfect for us. It is very private and has plenty of patio space for the kids to run around and play. Manuel Antonio has several hotels but fewer apartments with kitchen facilities which is very useful with young kids. So jungle creek with its price point worked really well for us. Paula is extremely helpful and organized. She setup our week long itinerary before we came - a wonderful surprise. She goes above and beyond in everything she does - the washer was broken when we were there and she arranged to get our laundry done in one of the vacant units. She actually folded our laundry and left it in our unit for us!! I loved the fact that she responded so quickly and promptly over email during our stay there.
So even though we didn't have a phone, it was very easy to communicate with her by getting on the facilities wifi. Incredible value and a pleasant experience - We would go back there in a heartbeat.

We spent 5 nights at Paula and Clarke's Jungle Creek with our three children. It was a great stay in the Mono Vista apartment with our own patio overlooking the garden and jungle.

Paula and Clarke made every effort to make us feel welcome and guided us to the best restaurants, helped us with tours and travel arrangements.

We would gladly recommend Jungle Creek to anyone:)

We had a wonderful time in Manuel Antonio thanks to the warm welcome of this Canadian couple. The appartments (especially the big one next to the pool) are decorated and furnished in the best way you can imagine. They also have a welcome basket for their guests! The hotel owner are warm and nice people and it really was a pleasure to chat with them next to the pool. They gave us excellent advice to find the best restaurant for the kids. It is one of our prefered choice in Costa Rica!!

Room Tip: The big appartment next to the pool is absolutely wonderful!

My family stayed at Jungle Creek toward the end of our 2 week trip in Costa Rica. With 2 small children and a newly acquired back injury, the villa and owners were INCREDIBLE. The Villa was a great size and safe to let the kids play, and the owners went way out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and had what we needed (even arranged an in room massage for my wife and I and pointed me to a great chiropractor). The place was beautiful and in a convenient location to everything- next time in Manuel Antonio, we're definitely going back.

Room Tip: The villa closest to the creek has a large porch that has a gate which you can lock. Great for lett...

We just left Jungle Creek 2 days ago and are already missing it! What a perfect place for our family! We are a family of 4 (kids are 6 & 8) travelling throughout Central America and needed a break from being on the road. We booked Jungle Creek a few days before arriving and were pleasantly surprised! Much better in person! We stayed in the Mona Vista - ceiling fans, air conditioning, hot showers, tv/dvd/cable, private outdoor patio, and of course the pool to cool off in! Location was excellent - situated almost 1/2 way between Quepos and Manuel Antonio - good supermarkets in both towns. Beautiful beaches and national park. We had a car as it was easier to get around with smaller children however you could easily walk, taxi or take a bus. The wildlife is amazing in the area - right in the ranchero we had around a dozen monkeys!
Paula & Clark were so welcoming (of course Canadians!) and we feel we left with some new friends! We hope we get a visit from them in Australia!

Room Tip: we stayed in mona visa - has a private outdoor seating area, the other 2 bedroom had a lovely indoor...
