We had a great time with a group ages 5-80. Our bedroom had a wall view of the ocean and one of the jungle. Monkeys visited daily, and we watched a sloth from the patio. We had a wide range of activities to choose from and they were very well organized. Chef Chaco was fantastic.

Management response:

Escape Villas appreciates your review of Casa Fantastica and we are so glad you had such a memorable experience. Chaco is about the best around and we are happy to have him as our house chef here. Please come back to visit us in paradise again soon!

A group of 12 of us stayed at casa Fantastica for a week for my 50 th birthday. The house was perfect and our chef outstanding. We enjoyed the visiting monkeys, birds and loved watching the sloths from the pool. Highly recommended this house for your next adventure. Great location and the staff was very helpful.

Management response:

So glad you chose Fantastica for your birthday celebration and for your recommendation. We enjoyed your group and hope to see you back again soon!

Sited on a small promontory that provides elevated 270-degree wrap-around jungle views, this contemporary mansion is truly unique to the area. The view of the islands in the bay below never gets old--not really an easy walk to the beach, but taxis know the way to the best beach spots. Concierge service was invaluable for taxi, deliveries, shopping tips, etc....

Management response:

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Casa Fantastica and thanks so much for the awesome review! It truly is a marvel set in the jungle and we agree, it has the best views in Manuel Antonio. The Escape Villas staff appreciates your compliments regarding the service you were provided during your stay. We have so much fun...
