5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2010

Our stay at Villa Quetzal in Manuel Antonio Estates was all positive. The 24 hour security guard helped us feel safe & relaxed in a foreign setting. Our accommodations were spacious & private. This setting offers the opportunity to be in the middle of nature, with wildlife all around & close to the beaches & wilderness of the national park AND the luxury of being a 5 minute walk to the center of a great little town, or a short drive or cab ride away from some upscale restaurants, hotels and other tourist attractions. The staff are always available & very helpful & eager to serve. We highly recommend "Richard's place" for individuals & families of all ages. We are an adult couple travelling with teenagers, and their grandmother & everyone had a great time!

This place is a hidden gem, better than we ever expected and we expected a lot. For the first night we had the "house", which was absolutely gorgeous, high on the hilltop, stunningly decorated, extremely elegant. The 2-bedroom condo that we had for the remaining three nights was also very beautiful, large and cozy, beautifully decorated, great balcony, surrounded by beautiful scenery, an amazing pool area, and very reasonably priced. We loved it here! We wished we were staying for more than 4 days. The monkeys that passed through every morning at 10:30 was an amazing sight. And the lizards everywhere were incredible.

The estate itself is incredibly beautiful; surrounded by forest and great beauty; you feel as if you are in another world, away from it all, quite secluded, but yet within easy walking distance of "downtown" Quepos and all the great restaurants. It is a very different place from the resorts of Quepos and Manuel Antonio.

Manuel Antonio National Park is a $5 taxi ride away and incredibly beautiful, with excellent hiking, wildlife and beaches. There is so much to do and see here, from wilderness adventure, wildlife viewing, to stunning beaches, great nightlife and wonderful restaurants. Additionally, a drive down to the beaches of Dominical (about 1 1/2 hrs) is well worth it.

Richard, the owner was wonderful, very good to us, extremely helpful and always available if needed. He is very knowledgeable of the area and things to do and see. He also has great connections for tours, trips, excursions, etc. It seems to be a well-run organization.

The only complaint I can make (and this was relatively minor, with not much that anybody could do about it) was that the large group of young girls (possibly from some Scandanavian country) who had most of the rest of the condos in the two buildings, were quite noisy - outside by the pool, on their balconies, talking on cell phones constantly, and with their laptops with their Skype setup, instead of inside in their rooms - making it very annoying at times.

We absolutely loved it here and at the Estate in particular. We are hoping to go back again some day.

We were greeted by monkeys the second we pulled up to check into the apartments. First thing we did was hop in the pool. It was perfect temp and had gorgeous views! The accommodations were pleasant, especially for the price! It was a short and beautiful drive to get to the town and National Park. I would refer anyone to stay here and I would again if I am fortunate to go back to such a wonderful part of the world.

The people at Manuel Antonio Estates were extremely friendly and helpful, even with booking tours and recommending things to do. Our apartments were extremely nice and very affordable, and the pool was great for the heat. We also saw plenty of wildlife around within the grounds.

We stayed at Manuel Antonio Estates for four nights. It was beautiful, the grounds are incredibly well kept. We stayed in one of the apartments, it had AC and a kitchen. The pool lights did seem to go off pretty early, but we still swam. :) It was close to Quepos where we could walk to town and get some groceries or just browse around. It was just down the road from Manuel Antonio and the national park. It was the perfect location. At night we heard monkeys outside as soon as we turned the lights off, it was pretty cool. There were so many beautiful things to see! The apartment stayed nice and cool, and the kitchen had all the dishes we needed. I would love to stay here again.

the estate is beautiful... and the spa is amazing. I liked that it is not actually in Manuel Antonio.. because that area seemed to be really touristy and the estate is within walking distance to quepos. We stayed in one of the two bedroom condos. They were nice, BUT hard THE hardest bed i have ever slept on and horrible pillows and the occasional roach and ants but that's to be expected right. Overall, for the price it was really great!

We just recently stayed with Richard at the estates. we were recommended by the B&B we stayed at in La Garita.
The apartments were clean, only AC in one room but at night if the doors were open in both rooms it was fine. the bedrooms were a little "muff" but you get that sometimes. the pool was clean and actually you are right in the jungle so even poolside you get to see some wildlife. Its a perfect location to be between Quepos and Manual Antonio. a short walk to Quepos at night and a short drive to the National park. We booked a Canopy tour through the estates with AMy and TiTI canopy was fantastic. The tour guides were extremely helpful/funny and the 4 of us really enjoyed our time with them. well worth the money spent.
Richard was by far extremely helpful and didnt hesitate to help us with whatever we threw his way.

Thank you Amy and Richard
