Guestbook comments from the manager

We came from Oregon, California & Washington to play at the beach and enjoy the experience of being together far from home. It has been amazing, people have been great, the Titi Canopy tour was excellent for the adults and 9\11 year old boys. It was close, fun and humid... Manuel Antonio is our favorite beach EVER (Mari's chairs has been excellent!) We just saw a huge group of monkeys (squirrel monkeys) up so close we could see the eyes! It was lively in the jungle... We have had good shopping, good food, a nice wine store a close walk, and the boys enjoy the fried chicken from Chicken Bros. Also a close walk from here... Surf lessons were great at the beach! Pura vida! is the obvious fave phrase, even more than ¡Gracias!! For fun, el Avion is a good restaurant, more for the experience and view than the food. Same with Barba Roja. The whole time has been pretty amazing. We are pretty happy to be here! Thanks for housing us, we needed bigger pans is the one thing to change, but we figured it out, Mot Mot is wonderful!

Fun in the Forest

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Manuel Antonio Estates. The desk help was fantastic; spoke great English and were very helpful in making our stay there wonderful. The location was assume there in the rain forest with monkeys and sloths around to watch and enjoy from our home and pool. I definitely recommend these properties.

Great Location and Quiet Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Everything was accurate regarding the listing. The staff was more than helpful with anything we needed. Our only "slight" disappointment was the pool was not as private as pictured. You can be seen from the neighbor's rental and the main road. We didn't find it to be a big deal though, as the neighborhood was quiet and the other rental seemed to be on a different "pool schedule" than us. Cleaning service did a great job too. Even washed our dishes! Be prepared for steep climbs to and from the house. It was no problem for us, but those with mobility issues may have trouble without a car. The walk to Quepos was quick and there is plenty near by to do on foot. All the taxis we used to get up the "hill" to Manuel were friendly and knew exactly where the house was. We even had pizza delivered with no problems one night.

Truly our Home away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

Would not stay anywhere else. Our trip was wonderful, the house exceptional and the staff were first class? We've stayed in the same house twice (MOT MOT) and in the area several times. We plan to retire in the area!

Nice villa in the rain forest

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I took our two grandchildren to Manuel Antonio and stayed for 5 days in the Mot Mot Villa.It was nice to come home to, every day after hiking and zip lining. The kids enjoyed the pool,and we all had room to spread out.We didnt cook there,but everything is there for someone who wants to cook.Housekeeping wasnt that great, I was told to leave our clothes, and the maid would wash them. That didnt happen, so I did my own wash.She also would leave the towels in the washing machine every day,and we wound up drying them.No big deal,but I dont think they should tell people that it would be taken care of.Dorit and Elias were helpful,and Dorit answered all our questions about tours.My biggest complaint was not having someone to contact in the event of a problem.The last night,we were all tired,going to bed early.They rented the villa next to us to a very large family(we were told this the next day)who started partying and screaming for a few hours.We saw a guard walking around,asked him to contact the owners?to quiet them down.I guess eventually they did stop,but I called the only number I had-the office,and it was just voicemail. All in all we enjoyed the villa,but you never know whos also staying next door.My grandkids enjoyed seeing a family of monkeys near the pool every day,but we werent lucky enough to see the hummingbirds or any other animals, but maybe they were hiding that week

Well-appointed home with beautiful wildlife

  • 4 of 5

This lovely 4 bedroom home was perfectly situated to be able to walk into Quepos, or drive up towards Manuel Antonio. We rarely heard street noise, and always heard monkeys howling, or rustling through the trees! Oh, and the frog song at sundown was spectacular! The pool temp was great by midday, as the sun warmed it up very nicely. My favourite spot was the hammock on the wraparound deck. Every day, we saw monkeys, dozens of birds, and sloths. One day, we found a sloth climbing down a tree in front of the home...that was a treat! As expected in a tropical environment, the deck would have a different selection of non-dangerous creatures show up every night (always different, ranging from anoles to locusts to beetles and frogs) we would watch our step! Daily housekeeping was wonderful (although 2 days were missed, presumably due to Semana Santa), and Dorit/Elias were very helpful in booking excursions. We had A/C issues in one of the bedrooms for the last 2 days, and they were not able to fix it while we were guests...unfortunately, this put one of the bedrooms out of order, as the A/C was beeping loudly and continuously. The bathrooms and kitchen were very clean and modern, which is always something I appreciate! Tonnes of restaurants and attractions in the area. A car is very helpful! Thanks for a lovely stay.
