We just returned from 16 days traveling in Costa Rica and stayed at the Pavillion for 4 nights with our two children (6 and 8 y.o.). It was an adventure! We met Jose, the care taker of the property, at a little bar on a dirt road in Hatillo at an agreed upon hour. Jose was right on time and...

We are just one week home now after a glorious week at Manu Villas -- we stayed in Bosque en el Ciel. I had found the place through Tripadvisor and was anxious when we arrived to see whether the photos and other reviews truly matched the reality. Amazingly, and happily, not only did they match, the reality likely surpassed them....

We've been North, South and Central on the beach. For the past two years we have stayed with Alex and Grace at Manu Villas......and we intend to return again...

Arriving at Manu Villa we instantly felt a sense of home, comfort, and relaxation. After many hours of travelling we were greeted with a delicious dinner prepared for us by Grace. The Pavillion structure, infinity pool, and breathtaking views were stunning. There was an air of meditative calm when sitting by the pool overlooking the valley and the ocean beyond....

We stayed in a villa called Potoo. It is an amazingly beautiful antique Indonesian villa that was taken apart piece by piece and meticulously rebuild on the mountain slope overlooking Dominical. The hard-wood construction and ancient wood carvings are phenomenal! We design furnature and build houses ourselves, and we were extremely impressed with the beauty and quality of the buildings....

“Free wifi in the Dining/Main meeting Room. Surprisingly good internet connection for a place that seems so remote! If you work online you can work from here! Wifi reaches the private room at the north end of the meeting room and to the first room across the path to the south of the meeting room. We did not need the A/C.”
