I stayed in the smaller studio apartment in the eco condos at Manuel Antonio Estates for six months during 2011/12. I wanted close proximity to the jungle, the town and an easy bus ride to the beach and it was absolutely perfect. My apartment had everything I needed, including a full kitchen and a table where I could do my computer work. The new owners have also taken great care to fix the place up, adding nice finishing touches to each of the units. During the high season it was fun to connect with other travelers by the pool and there is a very friendly atomsphere.
Monkeys (titis/squirrel and the capuchins visited the property almost every day during my stay) thanks to a ton of fruit trees all over the property. You are pretty much guranteed to see wildlife during your stay!
PROXIMITY TO TOWN
I loved that I was so close to town (10 min walk to the grocery store) and yet I rarely heard any town noises and my view was 100% jungle. You'd never know you are so close to Quepos. There is a bus stop within one block of the property which will connect you to the beach.
APARTMENT & STAFF
The studio apartment was great for a long term stay and had everything I needed. The staff are awesome and Jessica took great care to keep the room very clean (she's very friendly and sweet, too). The security staff were also awesome and there is someone patrolling the grounds at night and someone at the gate at all times.
I highly recommend the eco condos, whether you are staying for a week, a month or more. You really won't find a better place.
