This was truly a paradise in Manuel Antonio and a stone's throw from both Manuel Antonio and Quepos. We saw Macaws having a ball in the tree next to the pool and many other interesting creatures. Apparently, monkeys, sloths and toucans also make their appearance, but we missed them during our time there. After staying in many hotel rooms, to stay in the luxurious and spacious villas and stretch out, was a rare treat. The villas are beautiful and comfortable.
Ms Letty at the front desk is a treasure and made our stay a pleasure.
Some tips from our stay:
- The street that the Villas are on, is very narrow and easy to miss. It is called Hotel California Road. If you are coming up from Quepos, keep an eye out for the restaurant Mimos. Once you see, it the turn is right around the bend. There is a deep rut at the start and the hill is steep, so you will either scrape your front or back bumpers if you don't do it slowly. Ignore impatient drivers, put on your blinker and take your time with making the turn into Hotel California Road. Otherwise you will be sorry you didn't
- To and From Quepos, it is actually more convenient to take Caie Vieja, instead of 618. More relaxing and you cross 618 to directly go into Hotel California road with good visibility.
- Restaurants on the drag to Manuel Antonio are clearly touristy in both price and menu options. Quepos had fabulous, authentic options.
- Eat at Sabromar in Quepos. You will be blown away
- Go to Paruque Nahomi
