Espadilla Ocean Club
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 May 2013

The Espadilla Ocean Club is a fantastic little compound of villas nestled in one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. Its right on the beach and the owner lives on the property and is available to help with anything you may need. We spent a few days just relaxing on the beach, a day in the national park, and we were right in the heart of costa rica to do the other things we wanted to do (river rafting, canopy tours, etc). We went with our children (6 and 4) but this would also be a perfect place for couples or even a couple of your friends. We plan on going back to the EOC very soon.

I have visited Costa Rica so many times that I have lost count. I have traveled from Panama up to Nicaragua, staying in every type hotel from small private beach cabinas to large all-inclusive resorts. As I get older, I have been looking for a area and resort to call my Costa home.

I finally found it in the EOC. Manual Antonio pretty much has it all. Great restaurants, beautiful beach, awesome National Park, uncrowded surfing and all the tours you could possibly want.

The resort is fantastic. The villas are super comfortable and beautify designed. Also, it is right on the beach. Every other house we have rented in Manual Antonio has been up on the hill and we have had to take the car to the beach, where parking can be a bit of an issue. The surfing in Manual Antonio is not as epic as a lot of the Pacific Costa Rican towns, however the lack of crowds and tidal consistency easily makes up for the smaller swell. It is also a great place to learn to surf and you always have the option to travel a few minutes down the road to Dominical where the surf is epic.

Lastly, I have to comment on the family that runs the EOC. Bobby and Shelly are wonderful. I would go back just to hang out with them. No matter whether you are looking for solitude or good friends they will have you dialed in from the moment you get there.

I will be back and plan to make a trip with my wife towards the end of the summer.
