One of our favorite places we stayed at in Costa Rica! Although the unit needs a little TLC, we enjoyed our stay in this spacious & well-located condo. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the early mornings & late evenings listening to the sounds of the jungle. Be mindful of spiders, however; you are abutting dense/lush terrain! The pool is lovely & we enjoyed using it to cool off. We also liked being so close to downtown Quepos. One could literally walk there if they wanted to. Nice/helpful staff. Dorit suggested scenic drives for us which we thoroughly enjoyed! The highlight of our trip was while taking a dip in the pool one evening a troop of monkeys began playing on the roof of our condo bldg. They entertained us for 20 min. with their antics! We watched them playfully knock leaves off the roof and jump from treetop to treetop. It was so much fun hanging with the monkeys and the iguanas! It was an incredible experience!
I have stayed here on 4 occasions so far. It has a great location at the bottom of the hill near Quepos. I love having an apartment with full kitchen. The staff are always welcoming and it’s a great place to watch the monkeys and birds. It’s also a great value when compared to a hotel.
My wife and I stayed at this place last summer and paid $1350 for 16 nights. After arriving and meeting others in the complex we were told that some people were paying $800 a month, some $1100 a month for the same place. We asked the manager Dorit why we were charged so much when others were paying $800 for the entire month. Her response was that we booked through AirBNB and that was their price.
This year we sent an email to Dorit and asked the price per month and she responded that the price was now $2800 US per month. We looked online and the price advertised on AirBNB was for the 2 months we wanted to stay was $2400. We booked this through AirBNB as last year we were told we paid a higher price because they have to honour the AirBnB price. We got a confirmation from AirBNB and my credit card was charged.
To our shock we later received an email from Dorit telling us to cancel our AirBNB reservation that we had to pay the price she quoted us. We told her that we would not be cancelling through AirBnB because it clearly stated that the cancellation policy was that if you cancel you forfeit 1 month rent. Dorit then said that she would not let us stay for that price but she didn't want to cancel because it would look bad to AirBNB and they would get penalized. DO YOU THINK!!! Cancelling a reservation for 2 months on people who have planned a holiday if they don't pay twice as much as the advertised price looks bad. What a scam!! I looked through some of the previous reviews and we are not the first ones this has happened to. I hope they get removed from AirBNB and I would advise against booking here. We have travelled to Quepos/Manuel Antonio 6 times and stayed at a number of different locations which I have review on Trip Advisor, all positive. I do not plan on ever dealing with these scammers again.
Exceptional customer service from Dorit from start to finish. She was amazing! Dorit knows the area, knows the people, knows how to be an excellent host!! She was a great resource for transportation, tours and everthing you might have a question about. The property itself was also fantastic. It had everything you would need for a comfortable stay, pool was great, the inguanas and monkeys very entertaining nightly. We have already reserved a few more nights for next month. I would highly recommend this property Or Dorit to help you find another if this one is full.
This little gem is tucked away in the lush tropical gardens super close to the park. Although I loved visiting Manuel Antonio park, my favorite part of this vacation was staying at this gorgeous property. The apartment was stocked with many things that we needed for our stay, the air conditioning super cold, and the place was so clean. The pool was absolutely amazing, refreshing and set in the most perfect paradise setting, we couldn't have asked for more. We will be back for sure. Thanks for everything!
Nice condo unit located within a gated community. Grounds are well maintained, nice size pool out front and excellent front desk service. Daily visits from troops of red backed spider monkeys and white faced capuchin monkeys were a highlight, also the hike to the private waterfalls.
AC in each bedroom with overhead fans in the living room. However, the living room furniture was not comfortable to sit in. Also, brighter bath room lighting is required. Needed larger frying pans and pots in the kitchen and chopping knives that are sharp.
This is the best place to stay in the area because it's a total jungle experience but close to shop.
