Las Cascadas The Falls
Ranked #18 of 47 Hotels in Manuel Antonio
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 5, 2013

When we got there we were offered several rooms to see which we preferred, then on the next day we asked about the penthouse and got it for a small additional fee which by the way was not only gorgeous but very confortable. The staff and the owners were great and very accommodating, willing to help, entertain and assist at any given moment. We saw more monkeys at our time here than in the Manuel Antonio park! Speaking of which it is still very near and the accommodation here will be cheaper.

Room Tip: ask for the penthouses

Greetings from Condotel Las Cascadas and thank you for your wonderful review. It´s great to hear that you enjoyed your stay in our Penthouse Deluxe so much - it is definitely our most comfortable suite with everything what you need.
The monkey visits are even for us always a great experience and we are glad that we were able to share this with you. All the best,

Do you like a place that reflects the area you are visiting? Las Cascadas is for you. Each apartment, or room was built and decorated individually, bathrooms updated this year. Clean and well maintained. Super friendly and helpful staff. Tours organized were top notch. Easy to take taxis to and from various sites, or learn to use the bus to Manuel Antonio, very near by. Cook some of your own meals if you get a suite. The local market on Saturdays is full of fresh delicious produce.
Breakfasts are made to order ( not included in room price) and are delicious. More pancakes than you can eat.
a nice pool set in patio and gardens, quiet, lots of birds and plants on the property.

Room Tip: breakfast only, unless you request dinner, If you have disability issues, better check which rooms w...

Gary and the staff do everything in their power to make you feel at home. Susann was a great hostess and helped with our travel plans. Quite and secure with great views and very clean. Great hot water! We were upgraded to the honeymoon suite on arrival. Lots of stairs but the view was worth it. Dallas helped out with all our needs and also took us to a special spot in the rainforest that was spectacular with lots of suspension bridges over beautiful waterfalls high in the treetops. One morning three whiteface monkeys were playing on the roof. Great experience and very happy with our choice.

Room Tip: Best views require more climbing of steps. But the views are great!

Just over a year ago, I discovered a hidden jewel nestled within a lush tropical rainforest, Condotel Las Cascadas. Since my first trip to Costa Rica in May 2012, I have returned twice more to explore many parts of this beautiful country. I have fallen in love with the scenic vistas, awesome wildlife and most of all the beautiful caring people. Each trip, I spend several days with Gary, Catalina and their family at Las Cascadas and my visit exceeds my expectations every time.

Whenever family and friends ask me where they should stay when visiting Manuel Antonio National Park...I quickly tell them without hesitation Las Cascadas. There may be other places to stay in the area; however, in my extensive travels I have never found another place which compares to the warmth that I feel when I visit my new friends at their charming, boutique hotel. Las Cascadas reminds me of my time spent at New England's historical inns, U.S. where you feel more like family then a faceless guest. While I typically spend the days hiking through the national park or sailfishing from the nearby Marina, I spend most nights at Las Cascadas meeting the other guests from around the world having drinks and relaxing by the pool in the outside cantina.

Gary and Catalina have always been generous and gracious hosts who give willingly of their time and offer advice on local activities. A scrumptious breakfast consisting of fresh fruits, juices, omelets, banana/coconut pancakes, and smoked salmon and bagels are served daily by the poolside or at another private setting of your choice.

Any guest who stays at Las Cascadas will agree that over the past two decades Gary and Catalina have poured their heart and soul into transforming their property into an amazing sanctuary. Shielded within a beautiful rainforest it appears that Las Cascadas has existed since the beginning of time. Although, built in stages their vision has remained constant throughout the years. From recent photos I have seen, they have given a new, stylish, fresh face to some of their older rooms. The property’s open design built on sloped terraces, use of windows to accentuate vistas, waterfall and painted murals in the pool area, a rock fountain in the Penthouse Suite, and use of woods and earth tones within each of the condos are only some of the examples of how Gary and Catalina have succeeded at bringing the outdoors indoors.

Gary and Catalina….Mis Amigos, thank you once again for opening your home and I can’t wait until our next visit.

Cheers,
Jeff Norberg

This condotel was beautiful. Our first taxi driver had to call to find it and still got a little turned around! It's quiet and out-of-the-way. We only had breakfast here, but it was wonderful. Since we came in the off season, things were a little slower, so most of the downtown businesses were closed, but the hotel would make reservations and taxi accommodations for wherever we wanted to go. The room are air conditioned and share a kitchen/sitting area with an adjoining room that is gated, yet open air. We saw an 18" lizard on our patio the day we left too. The pool area is well situated to the rooms and has great seating areas. our only drawbacks were trying to find a 3-prong outlet for a laptop and needing maybe 1 more blanket/cover on the bed.

Love must be in the air this year as we have catered to many great people on their honeymoons and anniversaries. My congratulations to you both . We loved having you here . I promised you monkeys and we delivered . They put on such a show up there in the Dome . Even after 20 years I have to stop what I am doing to watch them. Glad you could enjoy the magic.

My husband and I stayed at Las Cascades for our 10 year anniversary trip, we loved it! This is not your typical hotel or resort but we liked the quaintness of Las Cascadas. Gary and his family are wonderful. We stayed in the honeymoon dome. Be aware that this is a steep climb, but we loved it. One evening we had monkeys playing on the roof and in the trees surrounding our room and we just sat outside and watched them for about 45 minutes. Quepos is not the "resort" town that Manuel Antonio is, but Manuel is only a short taxi ride away. We enjoyed seeing the "real' Costa Rica as well as being able to visit the "touristy" areas. Great food, beaches and shopping close by. The people we met were so friendly. We had a great anniversary trip and it started with Las Cascadas!

We are so pleased you found us and that you enjoyed your stay here . Our little Jewel Las Cascadas is fast becoming known as a great honeymoon spot or get away for those special occasions . We have catered to over 35 honeymoons this year and many other anniversaries . We have never seen so many monkeys as we have this year. Glad you got the chance to enjoy them. They do put on quite a show up there on the Dome .I am thinking of turning it into the monkey amusement park .

Great place! The property is just really nifty, well decorated, and well maintained. Friendly staff and friendlier canines. You can also catch some glimpses of lizards and other such forest friends. I recommend this location to anyone that wants to be secluded and separate from the slew of hotels on the main road to Manuel Antonio.

Thanks for taking the time to write us a review. Our location is one of our best assets, More and more guests are finding the Manuel Antonio scene getting a little crowded and we offer a beautiful sanctuary here at Las Cascadas on 3 acres of property and only min away from the park , and many beaches in the area.
