“A family-moon!”
Reviewed 19 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

My husband and I, with our three boys (ages 7, 9 and 16) stayed in a 2 bedroom ECO condo for a week in December. It was the perfect location for us! The condos are in the rain forest-- from your balcony, you have a beautiful view of mountains and rain forest. You see birds with brilliant colors, giant iguanas and Capuchin monkeys playing all around you. If you walk down the (steep) hill on which the condo is located, you are in Quepos---which is lovely and not touristy at all. There are plenty of restaurants and small grocery stores, markets and bakeries to get great and fresh food and there coffee shops to enjoy the fabulous Costa Rican coffee. Walk about 10 minutes and reach "the Malecon" -- like a boardwalk along the ocean, where you find the locals playing music and dancing most evenings (at least that week they were). The beach is a short Taxi or bus ride away. If you go back to the condo and walk up the mountain, you may find sloths, toucans, more monkeys and birds with the most vivid colors I've ever seen all around you. Manuel Estates is a gated community and everyone there is wonderful. The guards are friendly and helpful as is Reina, the housekeeper. Dorit is a gem. We corresponded via email many times before our visit, she answered every question promptly and honestly. She organized our week of activities--and we are still raving about the activities. Every guide and experience was excellent. We went zip-lining, white water rafting, sailing/snorkeling and on a tour of the Manuel Antonio National park. The activities included knowledgeable and charming guides, wonderful fruit and lunch or dinner in some cases and transportation to and from each activity. Dorit even wrote to ask if she could rearrange the original itinerary of our activities to accommodate for guide that she personally knew is better than most.
The condo is spacious and clean. The pool was always clean and very refreshing. I must say it is hot..always and everywhere! We are from Florida and totally spoiled by air conditioner-- so it was a shock. At first, the fans did absolutely nothing to help--however, after a day-- we got used to it..or gave up caring...in any case, we slept with windows open (they are screened) and were fine. My kids ended up calling this trip a "family-moon", and it was. Also, if you have a physical disability or very small children, this place may not be right for you-- it is up a steep hill and lots of stairs to climb.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 10 November 2015 for a stay in February 2015

My wife and I stayed at the ECO Condo last February, the coldest February in recorded history in our home province of Ontario, Canada. We were so glad to be in Costa Rica!
We consider that trip to be the best and most relaxing holiday we have ever had. The jungle, the beaches, the animals, the birds and the people were amazing!
Our ECO Condo was perfect! It had everything we required to enjoy a very comfortable 2 week stay. It had 2 big bedrooms, a well equipped kitchen, comfortable living room and a fantastic pool! The people who work there were fabulous, especially our housekeeper and Dorit. Dorit made our stay so easy with her knowledge of the area and friendly manner.
The condo is within walking distance of a lovely little town named Quepos. We walked to the grocery store, restaurants, the beach, (that has a great farmer's market every Friday and Saturday) the bus station and my wife's favourite ice cream parlour. It is well situated for taking many different tours and just a short bus ride to Manuel Antonio.
ECO Condo is a great place to stay. It's comfortable, friendly, safe, easy to get to and relaxing. We will be back, hopefully soon!

Great place for a reasonable price. Clean and spacious. Wildlife is abundant. Nice pool. Staff is spectacular. Dorit is always pleasant and accommodating. If you need it just ask. Also she can line up great day trips from zip lining to hiking with a great guide. We will be back. Location is convenient to lots.

The place is spacious and clean. It's nice to have a pool to end a hot day. The location for Manuel Antonio/Quepos is ideal. Every employee from the guard at the gate to the maid service is most helpful.

Dorit is the best connection I have in Costa Rica. She can assist with almost anything in the area and has great advice for your next stop along your travels through the country.

“A Family Friendly, Beautiful Apartment”
Reviewed 27 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

My family stayed in the Eco Condos for 2 weeks in May, 2015. I cannot express the great experience that we had - although I will try.

The apartment that we were put into was specifically fashioned for families with you children and came equipped with a crib, high chair and a secure patio. It was very clean and spacious and overlooked a beautiful pool. It had a good sized kitchen and two large bedrooms.

We used the pool daily with our boys, ages 4 and 2, and watched the monkeys from the patio during the afternoon. The apartment was just a short walk to the wonderful town of Quepos which has all the shops you'll need for your stay - including grocery shops. Quepos also has one of the best sunsets you'll see and is safe, even at night. We got to know many of the people living on our walk route; how wonderful.

Even the hill up to the apartments, although steep, is great - through palms; oftentimes iguanas passing by you. Plus - with the steepness - we went home with great looking legs!

We will be back next year - a true home away from home!!
