Our stay at Jungle Creek Dos Palmas was terrific!
Dos Palmas has two bedrooms, a small sitting area, one bathroom, and a kitchenette. It is part of an estate with four units with the owners (Paula and Clark) living on site. There is a small pool on site and the grounds are beautiful. We even saw a group of monkeys on the grounds one morning!
Paula was very helpful in booking tours and providing suggestions for activities and (excellent) restaurants. She always seemed to pop up when we needed help with something, and she was extremely responsive prior to our trip when I was developing our trip plan.
We found Dos Palmas to be a good unit for our family of four (2 boys aged 12 & 15). The unit was very clean, and sufficiently spacious for us to spread out. We used the kitchenette for breakfasts but you could cook lunch or dinner there if you don't mind hand washing the dishes. The unit has air conditioning for the bedrooms which was needed for our visit in March!
It's about a 5 minute drive to the town of Quepos, about 10 minutes to the Manuel Antonio public beach and about 15-17 minutes to Manuel Antonio National park. This location worked well for us since we had a car.
My only (small) complaint is that the beds are hard (same as everywhere else we stayed in Costa Rica) and the AC in one of the rooms is a bit weak. These were minor issues, and given our very positive experience at Jungle Creek Dos Palmas, I highly recommend it. Dos (two) thumbs up!
P.S. For a splurge I'd also consider the larger 3 bedroom unit which is reasonably priced.
My son and I stayed at Jungle Creek for 2 nights and enjoyed every minute of our time there. The apartment was very clean and spacious and had everything we needed. The added benefit of the pool, outside sitting area, and surrounding jungle made it special. Clark and Paula made us feel right at home and invited us to have dinner with them at Barba Roja the first night. Great sunset from the restaurant. Paula was also very helpful in making arrangements for an excellent Mangrove Tours with Edgar of Manuel Antonio Expeditions. Location of Jungle Creek is ideal for both Quepos and Manual Antonio with many restaurants nearby. I highly recommend Jungle Creek for any visit to the area.
