“pura vita”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2008

Casitas was the best hotel on our trip to Costa Rica. The Tutu bar was fabulous. Our version of pura vita was watching the sun set over the Pacific Ocean from the open Tutu bar while sipping on a happy hour gin and tonic. Only thing better was Manuel Antonio Park, the only place we've seen that rivals the Napali Coast in Kauai for sheer beauty. Wildlife everywhere. Near our hotel we spotted the rare squirrel monkeys, white-faced monkeys, a giant blue butterfly, and a blue and green poison frog. The food at the restaurant was excellent and inexpensive. The room was spacious and comfortable (watched the Super Bowl there in Spanish). Eli esta el hombre! Only setback was the gay party into the wee hours at the Tutu bar. They got into trouble over that and did not repeat it. Must say those folks sure know how to party! Must have been a Mardi Gras celebration. All in all, the Casitas was a beautiful, lively, and fun place to stay.

  • Liked — location and beauty of hotel
  • Disliked — occasional loud late night partying
  • Stayed February 2008, traveled as a couple

The staff at Las Casitas is the best and the customer service is unparalleled. The room was very comfortable and much more spacious than my family and I expected. The staff also contacted our scuba company when there was confusion about pickup times and straightened everything out. After enjoying our delightful stay at the hotel, I unfortunately left behind a small box with my jewelry inside. I was very upset because there were some very sentimental pieces in there. I thought for sure it was lost, but the hotel manager held onto it for me and personally delivered it to my brother in San Jose when we discovered it could not be mailed internationally. I can't wait to go back and I will definitely stay at Casitas Eclipse when I do!

  • Liked — The excellent customer service.
  • Disliked — No complaints.
  • Stayed November 2007, traveled with family

Great Location, beautiful grounds and a private cabana! Stayed there for 2 nights when we only planned one. Met cool people there as well and felt like we had our own private pool.

Would reccomend it highly.
