Our stay in Jungle Studio 4 was amazing. Located on the back-corner of the villa, the view of the jungle is exceptional. We saw more wild life hanging out on the patio than in our visit to Manual Antonio National Park. Howlers, Capuchin, and Squire monkeys were daily visitors. The ocean breeze helps keep the patio cool and perfect for lounging on hot afternoons. The staff is friendly and very helpful in setting up transportation and giving advice for activities. Francisco our driver from SJO was great. Teresita the Villa Tabby was also very friendly. The Villa feels centrally located on the main street with walking distance to a lot of good restaurants, an ATM, and groceries. The beach is walk-able but I highly recommend walking a block and taking the bus to and from. Its approx.. $0.75 US each way [they take US dollars].
Had a great time here and loved the access to the restaurant and pool. Walking distance to a lot of great spots and easy bus pick up within 50 m to the beach. The fans are not very powerful so it might get a little hot at night and during the day.
Nous avons adorer notre séjours dans la région de Manuel Antonio. Notre studio était très bien et Sheryl était super. Nous avons profité du restaurant de l'hôtel et la piscine. La nourriture du restaurant est excellente. Le personnel de l'hôtel est très professionnel et respectueux. Nous avons eu de bons conseils pour organiser nos excursions a partir de l'hôtel. Nous avons aussi admirer les singes a partir de notre patio en prenant notre apéro et en préparant notre repas.
La experiencia fue muy linda, el lugar muy tranquilo, la cocina súper equipada. la verdad todo muy aseado. Me encantó el lugar.
Lovely Studio in the Jungle
The apartment is really nice, well furnished and exactly as described. Cosy terrace from where you see some monkey in the trees (they don't come to the house though, well behaved). The proximity to the hotel is nice, the restaurant acceptable and the pool a blessing. Friendly staff and the lush vegetation made my stay comfortable and nice. BTW: ants are quite normal in an environment like this, but if you don't leave food sitting around, you will hardly see any (so much re the comment below). Altogether a very nice experience, I will surely come back.
We decided to go to Costa Rica for our honeymoon. Villas Nicholas was closed for renovations, but it was still very well manicured and clean. Cheryl, the manager, upgraded our room the first night. The rooms look similar except our new room had a breathtaking view. An adorable monkey clan ran across our balcony the first morning- they paid us zero attention. We also were greeted every morning by a very friendly cat. The villas are located next to a bunch of restaurants and about 5 minute drive to the beach. We rented a car, but saw a good amount of people walking to the beach. We had a fantastic time. Very peaceful and relaxing. We highly recommend.
This was my absolute favorite stay in all of Costa Rica, in terms of the property I stayed in (and Manuel Antonio is pretty fabulous, too! Beach! Forest! Great restaurants!). This is one of those places where I booked it thinking, yeah, okay, there's no way it's REALLY this nice - and then I showed up and it was 10 times more beautiful than I expected. Don't be fooled by some of the negative reviews you see here - I had zero problems with bugs, and I cooked in the kitchen every single day (did I mention how great it is to have your very own kitchen while traveling? Such a bonus). Just keep stuff in the fridge or in ziplocs, and you'll have no problems. The bed is comfy, the little living room is so sweet, and the balcony is AMAZING. Book this place, you won't regret it. I'm already planning a visit next summer when I can bring the mister along to enjoy it with me!
