We recently stayed in the Espadilla Ocean Club (EOC) for 1 week. The location and the villas could not have been any better. You are a 10 minute walk or less to anything you could possibly need. You have a perfect view of the beach from the back of the villas whether you are hanging out in the private pool or looking out your bedroom window. And two minutes after walking out your back door, you can be sitting on the beach in a lounge chair under an umbrella.

The villas are extremely comfortable, modern, and well stocked with the basic vacation essentials. We had four adults comfortably stay in each unit, two per room.

Bobby and Shelley live on the property and can arrange anything for you including transportation, meal reservations and recommendations, park tours, ziplining, ATV rides, horseback riding, massages on the beach, yoga, etc.

We had a great vacation and will definitely be going back not only to Costa Rica but to stay at the EOC. It will be great to see when the 3rd and 4th unit are completed!

The EOC is the perfect vacation spot. On the beach (we've stayed up on the hill before in Manuel Antonio and what a pain to get to the beach), great conceirge service for ziplining, hiking, snorkeling, and our place was very clean and well kept. We were right in the heart of it all, beach, town, great restaruants and lots of wildlife all around which our kids loved! Great place to go with the family or for a romantic getaway!

We spent our Thanksgiving holiday at the EOC. The villas are spacious and very clean. They were a perfect size for our family of 4. Our kids loved the private pool and being greeted everyday by white-faced monkeys. Shelly and Bobby were so helpful recommending restaurants and coordinating the best excursions for us.
The EOC's location is amazing- It's right on the beach and surrounded by unique restaurant options. We can't wait to visit again!

We returned to Costa Rica after 9 years to the Espadilla Ocean Club near Manuel Antonio. Having never stayed in this part of the country, we were blown away by the EOC & it's special beach, which is only a few hundred yards away. When we arrived, our villa was perfection. The living area & gardens were beautifully designed, modern & organic. We celebrated our 20th anniversary here and had just the right balance of activities & rejuvenation time. The owners live on site and really take care of you. Anything you want to experience, they can arrange! We were able to have dinners at our villa & memorable meals at restaurants within minutes of our villa. On 2 occasions, we walked to & from the restaurants. Waking up to the monkeys and the sound of the ocean, walks on the beach, yoga on the garden patio & day trips to go hiking & sailing were highlights for us & just the right blend of rejuvenation & excitement. We are big nature enthusiasts & were able to see whales & dolphins on our sailing trip, as well as monkeys, iguanas & sloths in the park & on the property. If you want to experience the best of Costa Rica in a modern, eco-friendly villa with access to everything but without the 'tourist' feeling, this is it!!! We will be going back next year with our 2 boys, ages 9 & 6. Can't wait to experience it with them!

Room Tip: Each villa has an elemental theme--water, fire, earth & air. Ask which one is available. We loved our Water villa with a gorgeous view from the master bedroom.

Spent a long weekend here and late September and can't wait to go back! Fantastic location on the beach, short walk down beach to restaurants, bars, and national park. Enjoyed the daily visits from monkeys, while hanging out in a hammock or in our private pool. Villas are beautiful,well equipped, nicely decorated, and spotless. Bob and Shelley were gracious hosts as well. I am already booked to go back this spring, and can't wait.
