We stayed at this condo for a delightful, refreshing vacation. It is a lovely stroll down to Biesanz beach (bring beach shoes) and a short drive to Manuel Antonio park, which is a spectacular beach for swimming and playing. We ended each beach day with time swimming at the pool, and even met new friends there. Mornings were spent watching the birds with coffee in hand and bird guide on the table. Even though it is not a private property, like a house, you certainly have plenty of privacy with the way it is laid out, and it being an end unit, next to the trees. There are plenty of dishes and everything you need to prepare your own meals, which we like doing, at least for breakfast and snacks. We are a family with three kids and there was room for all of us- though, I wish the sleeper sofa were not in the master bedroom. We had our kids use the master and we used the guest room. The pool is maintained well and the lounge chairs and beds are a relaxing way to watch the sky, the sun, the moon and stars. If you are looking for an easy, accessible, relaxing and reasonably priced place to stay in Manuel Antonio, then this is a great option.
