Great house for groups

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Manakin. It's a great house for groups, especially couples, since each of the bedrooms is kind of its own suite. There are several rooms that are a bit isolated (up and down external staircases) but it leads to a lot of privacy, and yet there is a great common area/kitchen/pool where you can all come together. We were blown away by how entrenched in the jungle the house is. We were greeted by two toucans in the trees off of our porch, had a "pet" red-eyed tree frog for two days and also had a family of white-faced monkeys who decided to pay us a visit and went so far as to come onto our porches and in the house! We took flashlight nightly tours around the property and saw bats, snakes an frogs. It was endless wonder for the kids and it was nice to be able to walk into town, though big hills on the way home. The beach is within 10 minute driving distance as is the park. It was really a great house that we thoroughly enjoyed during our four day stay in Manuel Antonio.

The house itself is amazing. So spacious and a gorgeous view of the ocean. The staff are very accommodating and regularily clean the pool / rooms etc. It is a rough walk up the hill but that is the only downside, and we hardly wanted to leave anyways! The beach is accessible by bus. Kitchen fully equipped and we loved that each room had it's own lovely bathroom. Monkeys came through each day at dinner time and were so entertaining! I would go back!

Dreamlike vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

The Manuel Antonio Estates villas and the surrounding areas are breathtakingly beautiful. The staff, especially Luis and Dorit, are amazing and so helpful. They went out of their way to make sure that we had everything we needed and were perfectly happy with our accommodations. From the time we arrived until the second we left, they took care of everything, and they even arranged a zip-line tour and transportation for our large group of 23. I highly recommend Manuel Antonio Estates to anyone looking to vacation in Manuel Antonio or Quepos. Pura Vida!

Amazing Villa!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the most spectacular places we have ever stayed at! Our family had so much fun in the pool and the views from the balcony were simply breathtaking. The villa itself is huge and the location is perfect. Close enough to the beaches and town to make it an easy trip and yet still set far enough from the roads that we could enjoy the peace and tranquility of this beautiful part of Costa Rica. The amenities are world class and the accommodations are superbly luxurious (we particularly enjoyed the huge jacuzzi bath with the view of the ocean!). Would recommend this Villa to anyone wanting to explore Manuel Antonio or Quepos and the owner, James, was wonderful to deal with as well. Enjoy!!

Memorable Wedding Anniversary in Manakin

  • 4 of 5

My wife and family stayed in villa Manakin for 5 nights. We celebrated our wedding anniversary. The overall location of the property is great and a short drive to Manuel Antonio beach and park. The property is nice and all the rooms do have a/c since it is quite hot. The terrace has a great view of quepos and the ocean. The first floor is spacious and the kitchen is decent.

We enjoyed our stay and definitely recommend it for a family trip or reunion. The hostess and property manager are very attentive and servicing. The housekeeping is always on time. We definitely enjoyed our stay.
