Guestbook comments from the owner
It's been a month since I stayed at Casa Fantastica and for a month, I along with all my friends have been depressed. My group of 19 was able to stay here for a week and we were spoiled the entire time. The place is known locally throughout Manuel antonio as one top houses in the area. The view of the pacific ocean from the infinity pool is surreal and as all the other reviewers have said before, the pictures online can't truly do it justice. All the bedrooms were spacious, well kept and well air-conditioned. Except for Sunday, the rooms and the house were cleaned every morning and the maids did everything to keep the house spotless, they even brought in fresh flowers daily. From the bar to the game room to the kitchen, the house had everything we needed to relax all day and party all night.
Ricky, our host, was always just a phone call away and helped with everything. From getting taxis to unlocking safes that we accidentally locked ourselves out of to organizing buses to and from the airport, Ricky and his team were there. However, the true star of the house was Stephan, our cook. We foolishly did dinner in Quepos for a night and quickly realized that nothing matched the quality, cost and convenience of having him make amazing feasts in our own kitchen. He is extremely talented and has cooked all over the world at some of the finest restaurants. Even with all his talent, we only had to pay for the cost of food, so it never cost more than 15 dollars per day for both breakfast and dinner. From his shrimp to mahi-mahi to his chicken, each meal was simply delicious. Stephan was even able to get us the exact birthday cakes we wanted, one peanut butter and one red-velvet.
Not enough can be said about how the house, the staff and the view. I spent over a year and a half planning for this trip and everything about this house has exceeded my expectations. If you are looking for the very best place in manuel antonio, honestly look no further...it's Casa Fantastica.
