“dream castle”
Reviewed 14 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

I have never rented a vacation home when I was not at least a little disappointed that the pictures made it look better than real life, UNTIL Castillo de Amber. This place is truly a wonderful castle. We rented the whole house for our family of 14. It was more than comfortable. Vanessa the concierge and Yerilyn the maid were wonderful, so helpful. Cannot go wrong with this place.

“Great Stay at Castillo de Amber!”
Reviewed 9 May 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We visited Manuel Antonio for a guys' fishing trip with 9 people. Castillo de Amber proved to be the perfect accommodations for us and I'd highly recommend it.

The house was great. Views from every floor. The rooms were tidy and clean when we arrived. We loved having maid service every day.

The website descriptions were very accurate, and as you can tell from the descriptions, there are 4 different units that are all joined together very well. For our group (9 single guys) it worked great, because everyone had their own living area, but the main floor dining room worked fine as a common area for breakfast and dinner.

The swimming pool was great, and we made good use of it every day after fishing. It was very clean, despite the lush foliage that overhangs the patio.

The property includes 4 levels with a lot of stairs, so it certainly could be a challenge for groups with elderly or disabled guests. However, the street level unit is the largest and includes the biggest kitchen, so a disabled or elderly guest could stay on that level.

One of the highlights of Castillo de Amber was Vanessa, the concierge. It was such a luxury to have a personal concierge, and Vanessa was very prompt, professional and personable. She did grocery shopping, made restaurant recommendations, arranged for a taxi van, and helped us with a small issue with had with the A/C in one of the rooms. She also arranged for a private chef, which was amazing...the chef prepared breakfast each morning, and a steak dinner one night.

The location for Castillo de Amber is great. It is located a short (3 min) walk to the main road in Manuel Antonio, and we walked to dinner every night. There is also a sports bar / casino that the guys enjoyed. The casino isn't much, but we played a few hands of low stakes blackjack. From Castillo de Amber, we took a 5-10 minute taxi ride to the marina, and when we went to the beach we actually took the local bus which great.

I highly recommend this house, and especially Vanessa and ManuelAntonioRentalProperties.com!

“Great location, great service, great follow up.”
Reviewed 3 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Vanessa was outstanding. My friend booked the accommodations, but Vanessa reached out to both of us for any special needs and did a great job provisioning the house for our arrival.

We went for a fishing only trip, but I want to bring my family and have them experience this great spot.

The house is in a gated community and provided great views and proximity to town.
