“So great we stayed several days more than expected”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

We loved our stay at Jungle Creek. One of our favorite places we've stayed at in Costa Rica. Jungle Creek is located in such a wonderful spot that it is on the edge of nature allowing you to see animals and hear the Jungle right from your room and the pool but just far enough off the road that you don't get all of the traffic noise allowing for a great sleep. The hotel is also just close enough that you can easily walk to the main road and catch a taxi/bus to the main beach area. (Only a block and a half walk). The hosts are extremely friendly and helpful with any information you may need. We drove around and checked out several hotels in the area and you get a MUCH nicer room at Jungle Creek for the same dollar value than any of the 4 other hotels we checked. We enjoyed our time so much that we ended up staying several more nights than expected. I highly recommend staying at Jungle Creek.

This is my favourite review to write of the entire trip as we found Jungle Creek so enjoyable!

Firstly, Paula and Clark are the BEST hosts! Their Canadian hospitality really comes through. They are always available to offer suggestions and help book tours.

The property is beautiful. We stayed in Mono Vista which we absolutely loved. It was a two bedroom apartment with its own outdoor living space.

There is a common area with a plunge pool for all of the guests. It has a large barbecue area and great seating. They also have some green space with two hammocks.

There is a wonderful hike to a waterfall that you can walk to and Suzy the resident dog loves to come along.

The property is extremely well maintained, the apartments immaculate and the hosts are wonderful.

We enjoyed our stay so much we have already booked 2 weeks next year which is a first for us!

Room Tip: Loved the private outdoor space of Mono Vista!

We loved having this couple stay with us! It was awesome to hang out and go for dinners and hear about their experiences on their other travels as well. We can't wait for them to come back again next year. We will be thinking of the next adventure we are going to send them on! Thanks again for the awesome review!

First of all, the layout and style of the property are both unique. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and in comparison to the surrounding hotels, Jungle Creek is a solid bargain. The best part, is the hosts themselves. Paula and Clark (if there is an e at the end of your name sorry) are great -- very lively and welcoming. They made sure we had everything we needed. They even invited us to join them for dinner and drinks at a local restaurant where everyone seemed to know and love them. We had such a great time getting to know them! They set us up with a fantastic tour guide and restaurant recommendations during our stay. If your are planning on visiting the Manuel Antonio area you should definitely stay at Jungle Creek!

What a cute young couple and a pleasure to have them stay with us. We appreciated their enthusiasm and their appreciation of our place and the country. These travelers are welcome back at Jungle Creek anytime they want to come back.

My husband and I stayed 3 nights in the Mono Vista 2 bedroom unit with our 20 year old twin son and daughter earlier this month. The unit was very nice. Bedrooms are small but there is ample storage space in the huge bathroom for luggage. Beds are comfortable and with windows on 2 sides you really feel like you are sleeping in the jungle, especially when the monkeys start making a racket! We appreciated having the kitchen to fix breakfast and coffee in the mornings, and the bathroom with 2 showers was convenient. We had a nice lanai with table and chairs plus comfortable sitting area. Paula and Clark (and their dog Suziie) were delightful and when asked, gave us dinner recommendations that were spot-on. We even met them for dinner one night. The shared pool area was nice. Paula booked our tour of Manuel Antonio for us and the guide Pablo was great. Had a chance to peek at the 3 bedroom and studio units between guests and they were both very nice and roomy too. We would definitely stay here again.

Our trip only allowed us to spend 1 night in the Quepos area and we spent it at Jungle Creek on the recommendation of friends. It was awesome! It is up a dirt road (which makes it nice and quiet!), but still close to everything. The owners are Canadian and super helpful. We did use their recommendation for tour guide in Manuel Antonio, and it was perfect. We also took their recommendation for dinner and had our best meal/sunset view in our whole vacation. Very clean, BIG suites with full kitchens and good coffee. They had quite a good selection of kids DVD's so our children watched a movie that night with popcorn. I would recommend staying for longer if you can. Our children are 6/5/4 months the pool is smaller and was a little too deep for them. We didn't spend any time there anyway, but it would be better for older children, and if you were going to spend a lot of time there.

Room Tip: We stayed in a 2 bedroom at the bottom of the hill. It was quiet!

Great time at Jungle Creek! My husband and I, stayed at Jungle Creek Villas in Manuel Antonio for 8 nights the second week of March 2014. Our stay here felt more like being with family or a friend then in a hotel. If you want clean, quiet, comfortable, friendly, well priced accommodations close to all tourist and transportation options, Stay Here! The weather was fabulous, hot with a bit of cool rain in the evenings. Yes the snorkeling here is not the Rivera Maya (Caribbean quality) but the viewing possibilities of wildlife makes up for that. During my stay in this area I saw, two toed and three toed sloths, three kinds of monkeys, racoons, so many beautiful birds and interesting snakes, insects and marine life! This is a Paradise destination with so much to see and do. Viewing dolphins from a small boat close-up and personal during sunset, was a special memory for us! I loved the option of being able to cook for myself in the kitchen in the condo/suite. If you prefer to eat out or have a drink on a beautiful sunset deck restaurants of every price level and ethnicity are close by. Go to Manuel Antonio / Quepos just to see the sunsets alone is worth it, Amazing! There were no bugs in our room only a friendly little Gecko “which we loved” One day by the pool I was able to see a sloth, some Titi monkeys and a family of Capuchin monkeys! The symphony of the jungle is what you awaken to in the morning, awesome! The pool is clean and so refreshing on a hot, hot day. The owner Paula is friendly and helpful with any requests or questions you have! We had a wonderful and memorable stay here. Hugs to Susie, loved the walks and company girl. Thanks Paula for all the help, great stay and picking us up at the Airport. We had a great last night on the patio with all your guests and the delicious Pina Coladas you served up! Yummmmy! Two Canadians to two Canadians, Love Costa Rica eh!
