Hotel Casitas Eclipse
Ranked #39 of 46 Hotels in Manuel Antonio
Reviewed 9 January 2009

The charm of the Casitas Eclipse Hotel is evident from the moment that you check-in. Christopher, our amazing receptionist, took excellent care of all of our needs. He was friendly and intelligent and was the perfect smiling face to greet us. He readily helped us book our tours and gave us suggestions on secluded beaches in the area. Our casita was very clean and all of the necessities were awaiting us. Although it is not appointed with 500 count sheets and a pillow-top mattress, it is more than comfortable. Regardless of the few negative reviews about theTutu Bar, we had no problem sleeping, even on New Year's Eve. All you have to do is turn on your A/C and it creates just enough white noise to lull you to sleep. Our bathroom was great and we enjoyed the veranda very much with our morning coffee!

The breakfast was always fresh and the beach is only a short distance away. Housekeeping always did a great and creative job with our room that brought a smile to our faces when we returned after a day at the beach. Even the maintenance fellow was all-smiles!

The grounds at the hotel are very well-manicured and lovely. One of two pools was very close and it was always clean with the lingering lizard bathing in the sun.

We must also applaud the Gato Negro Restaurant, adjacent to the Hotel Eclipse. Although we had many choices for places to eat, we felt most at home here. Javier, Memo, Aldo and David were exceptional in their service. I only wish the service at home was so good! I felt spoiled rotten. My fiance' even spent his nervous moments before our wedding at the bar, finding respite with the guys at the Gato Negro.

We cannot say enough nice things about our stay here. We felt very at home at the Hotel Casitas Eclipse and plan to return with friends and family around the same time next year. Thank you 1,000 xs!

Casitas was the best hotel on our trip to Costa Rica. The Tutu bar was fabulous. Our version of pura vita was watching the sun set over the Pacific Ocean from the open Tutu bar while sipping on a happy hour gin and tonic. Only thing better was Manuel Antonio Park, the only place we've seen that rivals the Napali Coast in Kauai for sheer beauty. Wildlife everywhere. Near our hotel we spotted the rare squirrel monkeys, white-faced monkeys, a giant blue butterfly, and a blue and green poison frog. The food at the restaurant was excellent and inexpensive. The room was spacious and comfortable (watched the Super Bowl there in Spanish). Eli esta el hombre! Only setback was the gay party into the wee hours at the Tutu bar. They got into trouble over that and did not repeat it. Must say those folks sure know how to party! Must have been a Mardi Gras celebration. All in all, the Casitas was a beautiful, lively, and fun place to stay.

The staff at Las Casitas is the best and the customer service is unparalleled. The room was very comfortable and much more spacious than my family and I expected. The staff also contacted our scuba company when there was confusion about pickup times and straightened everything out. After enjoying our delightful stay at the hotel, I unfortunately left behind a small box with my jewelry inside. I was very upset because there were some very sentimental pieces in there. I thought for sure it was lost, but the hotel manager held onto it for me and personally delivered it to my brother in San Jose when we discovered it could not be mailed internationally. I can't wait to go back and I will definitely stay at Casitas Eclipse when I do!

Great Location, beautiful grounds and a private cabana! Stayed there for 2 nights when we only planned one. Met cool people there as well and felt like we had our own private pool.

Would reccomend it highly.
