Manuel Antonio, Province of Puntarenas
Casa Samba is the perfect tropical escape villa. This 5-bedrooms, 6-bathrooms villa was built into a bluff, overlooking the rainforest with vast Pacific Ocean views near Playa Espadilla white sand beach. It is in the exclusive cobble stoned neighborhood on Pacific Canyon Drive, private, but easily accessible to the local markets, restaurants, spas and the Manual Antonio National Park.

The cleaning staff weren't too good at their job - the pool area was often littered with debris from the trees - she only cleaned that once in our week long stay.

Management response:

Thank you for your review and taking the time to alert us to this situation. The team at Casa Samba works hard to keep the entire villa up to our very high standards so we are surprised to hear of this. We do know that properties in the jungle require constant attention to falling leaves and debris and our Escape...

It was an amazing home! We were lucky enough to be surrounded by the beautiful jungle, monkeys, iguanas and the occasional sloth. That made the trip for my 2 kids. Our chef Junior was outstanding, went above and beyond for us. The maid service was the thing I miss the most now that I am back home cleaning up after...
