Condo Del Mar, A Unique Condominium Experience by the Sea

Imagine entering your luxurious vacation home away from home completely furnished with everything to make your stay incredible and have the refrigerator and pantry already stocked with the items you have selected in advance. . No need to spend your time shopping, it's done for you so you can spend your vacation like you are supposed to. Then, for that first meal after a day of traveling, enjoy an already prepared dinner on the deck as you watch the sun drop serenely into the Pacific. The next morning, your personal van picks you up at the door and takes you directly to the best sport fishing boat in the harbor, The Frenzy, and you're off for an incredible day of fishing for Marlin and Sailfish or maybe you stay inshore for Roosterfish. If fishing is not your thing, the van instead takes you to one of many eco-touring spots of the area or you try the zip-line canopy tours or white water rafting.

Maybe you just want to relax the first day and have an in-home massage and laze by the pool.

Casa El Mar is the most unique vacation rental condominium located in the incredible beauty of the Manuel Antonio area. It has optional features not found in a typical condominium such as a full time maid, the pre-vacation food and beverage service and a full time concierge manager that will give you 5 star service from the moment of your arrival. This spacious 3-bedroom penthouse has the best ocean views of the entire complex. Now open on the same property is a fine dining restaurant and a full service cocktail and pool bar, to compliment the large pool with a spacious sun deck overlooking the ocean.

There are nature trails adjoining the property where you can hike and observe monkeys, sloths, butterflies and other features of the tropical rainforest. It is just a short walk to Bisanz beach.

This small beach doesn't have the crowds of the larger Manuel Antonio Beach and offers snorkeling, kayaking and swimming. For those a little more adventurous you can walk by beach all the way to Manuel Antonio National Park, Costa Rica's most popular National Park and for good reason.

Come and enjoy this unique condominium experience and prepare to be pampered!

expensive, but High end, well appointed condo with great views and nice pool/bar

The condo is very nice and very high end. though the living room and kitchen are relatively small, the bedrooms are spectacular. two are on opposite ends of the condo and are expansive and have associated living/relaxing space with their own large bathrooms, and their own private balconies with excellent views of the ocean and the nice pool below. the third bedroom is smaller but also has a balcony with views a nice bathroom across the hall. there is a 4th bathroom off the kitchen/living room, and also a large balcony. Laundry facilities in the condo were a great bonus. the condo has very high ceilings which give it a very big, luxurious feel. We were a family of 6 and the place worked out great for us with two in each bedroom, but because of the bedroom size, appointments and arrangements this Condo could easily be a getaway for 3 couples (or families) or two small families. The pool was very nice, and the associated bar/restaurant was very convenient for afternoon relaxation and drinks after a day of exploring.

the location is very good, within a walk to a beach that is pretty but not great for swimming (very rocky - hard to walk in). we had a Car and used it to explore, and this is critical unless you plan to use cabs.

with a car or by cab it is very easy to get to many nice restaurants, beaches, and other attractions from the central location, but due to distance, hills and narrow streets i would not recommend walking far. there was a dedicated place for parking a vehicle.

Willy, the property manager/concierge was extremely helpful in orienting us and helping to plan activities. a guide book prepared by the owner was spot on with recommendations for fun activities and great places to visit/eat. i would have given this place 5 stars if it had been more reasonably priced... but it is a high end property, and more than we needed, and you do get what you pay for.

Well-appointed condo with stunning views

We stayed at this lovely home recently with another family....it is absolutely beautiful and both the interior and grounds/pool are immaculately maintained. We also found the property manager to be very friendly, professional, and helpful. The WIFI had a strong signal and was reliable, and it was a plus to be able to wash a load of laundry in the condo. The morning coffee view from the patio was stunning with lots of bird traffic--we didn't see any monkeys, but we heard them! It is extremely close to many restaurants and Manuel Antonio Park.

My only negative feedback is that the water supply was on and off for several hours during both days of our stay--not such a big deal on vacation--but it is still nice to take a shower on a whim :) Upon departure, we learned that this was property-wide during the weekend due to maintenance. I would also encourage those walking to Biesanz Beach (which is lovely) to carry a stick--a small, but aggressive, dog owned by the only homeowner on the beach path bit my husband without any provocation. The groundskeepers were very helpful in accompanying us in the dark down a path to the house without a phone line to verify rabies vaccination. We went back the next morning (the kids loved it) and the dogs were contained--but we learned that we should always be prepared with a dog deterrant when in unknown territory. The elevator was also out of commission--I don't know if this is typical. Not an issue for us to walk one flight of stairs--but it would be if a person had a disability.

This would be a perfect condo for 3 couples traveling together--and it was excellent for our group of 2 families (the layout is such that you have privacy and plenty of room). Three spacious and beautiful bathrooms. We will definitely recommend to others and hope to return again ourselves when we can make plans to fish with Frenzy.

A luxurious escape

This was our fourth time visiting these condos, but our first time in Condo Del Mar. The penthouse really is the best - the view, the rooms, the furnishings and the service were impeccable. We went with a few adult friends and our children. It's hard to find a place to please such a range of ages and interests, but everyone loved it. While one couple did the Titi Canopy tour, another family hung out at the pool, while another went to the nearby beach to snorkel. Just perfect. Can't wait to go back.

A Once in a Lifetime Experience

Wow. Wow. Wow. I have a feeling that after staying here, I'm going to have to compare every condo or hotel I stay in to this penthouse experience. The condo was immaculate, HUGE and modern. Everything was brand new with custom, high-end furnishings. There were 4 balconies with perfect, unhindered views of the ocean. There were 4 bathrooms and the showers were bigger than anything I had seen. The bed was super comfy and the fans and AC worked like a charm. There were even fans on the balconies!! The house was stocked with everything we needed and then some, from local hot sauce to a boogie board to specific guides on all of the best attractions in the area. The living space/kitchen was open, making it fun to hang out on the stools or the comfy couches. We were so busy we didn't turn on the TV once!

The condo mgr., Willy, was incredibly helpful. He was there to greet us when we arrived and arranged for our travel from the airport. He had tips for where to go and what to do. The housekeeping service was great too, on time and considerate. We had the luxury of washing all of our clothes in the unit before heading back, which was the perfect send-off!

There was a large infinity pool right below our penthouse condo with a hot tub as well as a large, covered dining and bar area for morning board games or lunch out of the sun. The staff were all fantastic and knew our names right away. The happy hour specials were great (2 for 1!) The Spa was beautiful and there were dozens of different treatment options -- it was quite affordable compared to other vacation spa's.

The location was perfect. It is a short walk to 2 different, amazing beaches and some restaurants/bars. A quick cab ride to town in Quepos or Manuel Antonio National Park for wildlife viewing and more beaches (and boogie boarding/surfing lessons). We did several awesome excursions including ziplining (canopy safari) and a sunset boat cruise (ocean king), all recommended by Willy.

Highlights from our stay:
-Dinner on the balcony while watching the monkeys swinging in the distance
-Enjoying the large "Roble Sabana" trees, which look similar to cherry blossoms and were in full bloom
-Late night swims in the pool/hot tub -open 24 hrs!
-Happy hour drinks under the cabana
-Watching the sunset from the infinity pool
-Our first walk to the beach for great snorkeling

Overall this was truly an incredible trip that I'll never forget. I never had a negative experience. Can't wait to come back! Pura Vida!

Far exceeded our expectations!

This is one of those rare experiences where you rent a condo based on their beautifully posted photos, and you arrive to find the place is actually more beautiful, and much larger than the photos led you to believe. Even the pool!
We just arrived home in Colorado from our first visit to Costa Rica and because we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, we were not ready to leave after 9 days! I can’t say enough about this condo. Our family of 6 had more than enough space to spread out with a large master for us, a beautiful guest room for grandma, and each of our 3 children had their own bed in the large bedroom containing 2 full-sized beds and pull-out couch…and their own master bathroom.
The owner of the condo is super approachable and was very responsive to all our questions and needs before we left. He sent us with a valuable information booklet containing personal reviews of local restaurants which we benefited from and shared with other guests. Willy, the on-site manager, was incredibly helpful, cheerful and polite, and he was immediately available whenever we called. He booked a few tours for us (zip lining and scuba diving), arranged a driver for one of us from the airport, and even gave us excellent directions to the San Jose airport the day we left. We agreed on a time that the cleaning crew would arrive so there were no issues there.
We bought fresh fish at the local seafood market – and cooked a few nice dinners in the nicely-stocked kitchen. Nightly drinks on the patio while listening to and glimpsing the howler monkeys was a delight. And the added bonus of a lightly-used beach within a 10-minute walk was amazing – even found some nice snorkeling by swimming out from the beach. We have highly recommended this condo to our friends and family – so if you are looking for a retreat away from the bustle, look no further!
