“A place to stay.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2013

The place had a good vibe but it was dirty, as in like the inside of the microwave had spiderwebs, the inside of the fridge was dirty, etc, etc. It seems like the administration does not make any effort to make it better. The outside facilities are pretty nice and the restaurant on the premises looks pretty nice too, we did not eat here. I would not stay here again unless it was clean.

The best things about our Villa were the gorgeous ocean view, the seclusion (each Villa has its own walkway and is largely on its own), the air conditioning, which worked very well, and the great price. With the view and seclusion, it is very nice to be able to sit out on the balcony and have breakfast on the little table with the beautiful morning view. It has a more or less full kitchen (didn't have a microwave). The supervisor is very helpful with the room and in helping you arrange other plans such as transportation, adventure tours in the area. The location of the villas is great, in the middle of Manuel Antonio, for quick trips to restaurants, the beach, and downtown Quepos.

I would give it 5 stars if not for a few pretty minor things. The sheets and pillows were old and should be replaced. It could be a little cleaner, although I thought that it was generally clean. The wi-fi does not work in the villa itself, but if you walk up to the very close restaurant, it works great. There is not a 24-7 office/reception, and if you get there after hours, there is confusion about your room. None of these things ruined my stay, and I would return.

Room was filthy, toilet wouldn't flush, shower wouldn't drain, floors and surfaces dirty, mis-matched thin torn sheets, one pillowcase had cartoons on it, tablecloth on table looked like someone had just eaten on it leaving crumbs, open shelf closet covered in spider webs, had to go to store and buy cleaning products first night. Curtain hanging over sink was un-hemmed and raveling out, not long enough to cover the window. Couldn't shut front curtains, had to pull them together from the middle and clip with a hair clip. Table on balcony was dirty, with a dirty astray on it. After the third night, we couldn't take it. So we went down the street and checked in to a 5 star Resort & Spa for the rest of our 25th anniversary. Lost lots of money on this little adventure. The sign out front posted a much lower rate than what we paid, not low enough for condition of the room. Our safe broke and they had to get someone to hammer it open to get our stuff out. On the up side, bed was comfortable, air conditioning worked, very good restaurant in front. Awesome views.

Room Tip: I would not recommend this place. The restaurant was very good, friendly service.

Loved the hammock while drinking morning coffee and enjoying the view. Must be under new management as Gilbert said he had just opened. Great value for a fully equipped kitchen, wifi, TV. First time I have had daily maid service with clean towels and the maid did the dishes, most unusual for the price. The restaurant has great happy hour deals. The only complaint is the second bed had a very uncomfortable mattress, layers of towels took care of that problem.

Room Tip: all 3 villas have the same fantastic view and amenities.

We LOVE our villa in Manuel Antonio while we were there. It gave us a nice, personal place to hang out after a long day in the National Park or on the beach. We were there for 7 days and the place was spacious enough not to feel claustrophobic after all of that time. There is a restaurant on the premise that is open fairly late which was convenient. We would stop by most days and pick up ice or buy some water for the night. They also have a guard in the parking lot on duty all night which made us feel much safer, since the villa itself is completely made of screens.

This was an amazing place to stay. Very economical and had all the amenities you would need-daily maid service who neven did dishes, beach towels, a/c and a balcony with a hammock. The view was the "best" Saw other places at a lot more money that did not have what we did. The restaurant beside us was very convenient and a great place to eat. Right across from bus stop to Quepos and park and walking distance to 2 beautiful beaches. Alex was very helpful and we could ask for anything. Would highly recommend this for short or long term vacationers.

Room Tip: just email Ylang Ylang to reserve
