Wow what a vacation we had and all thanks to the accommodation of Manuel Antonio Estates!
We were a family of six and stayed for a week at this house. Dorit from the beginning made booking, traveling, and answers to all our million questions, easy and simple. We arrived later evening, after the sun had set, the first night and there was a staff member waiting to greet us. He welcomed us and took care of our ever need! The property is beautiful and very safe. Easy to get to the beach and the downtown area for dinners and nightlife. We will surly be back and can not thank the staff at Manuel Antonio enough for such a great stay. The house also has great AC, I was actually freezing at night which was not complainant when you're sun burnt and exhausted from the heat all day! If you are looking to go to Manuel Antonio this is the place to stay!
We loved the home (Mat Mat house) we stayed in. It was clean and with many conveniences. It was great for our teenagers and offered great space. We enjoyed using the pool and seeing the monkeys go through the trees in the morning and evening. There was AC in two rooms and ceiling fans throughout which kept the house cool. Windows with screens could be opened in the kitchen. Porches everywhere were nice. We would love to stay there again.
The toddlers in the house needed constant supervision since the upstairs railing had wide slots. They slept safely in a downstairs bedroom with their parents who brought a gate.
We really appreciated the list of activities provided and the transportation that was included when Dorit made the arrangements for us. Dorit also gave us excellent recommendations for places to visit or to dine in.
We had a great stay at the Mot Mot house. The villa is in a great location -- about 10 minutes from the beaches in Manuel Antonio and several great restaurants. Dorit recommended some very good restaurants (we loved Barba Roja) and booked a sunset cruise for us. The kitchen was well equipped, although the fridge did not get very cold. Although only two of the bedrooms had air conditioning, we were able to keep cool between fans and the pool. A four wheel drive vehicle is recommended to access the house, because the drive is very steep! The house could also use a little more lighting -- it got a little dark at night. Definitely visit the national park if you stay here! We also loved deep sea fishing (we were able to cook some of the dorado we caught on the charcoal grill...the propane grill was not functioning).
Villa Mot Mot was set in some of the most beautiful property I have ever experienced. The staff was very professional and our entire party felt extremely safe. The only draw back was that the hot tub did not function as one but rather an additional smaller pool.
Beautiful home. Perfect for our group of 7. Although not in Manuel Antonio, it was a short 5-10 min drive. Close to the action in Quepos. We were even visited by the local spider monkeys. Highly recommend
Dorit was a great host, good communications and great resource. The home was nice but could use a little updating. Having a pool was a nice feature. The main issue was that in the unit we stayed in the air conditioning was in the two main bedrooms and not the two smaller bedrooms.
I was a member of a 6 person group that stayed at the Manuel Antonio Estates in Villa Mot Mot for 4 nights in March 2012, and I think it was a great choice. The management arranged two vans to transport my group from San Jose airport back to the villa and in general I found them to be professional and responsive when dealing with our requests. The house was clean and well-furnished. In particular, we all enjoyed the private swimming pool out back. Equally important, the vila was within 20 minutes of all the Quepos and Manuel Antonio activities that my group was interested in.
On the negative side, there is only air conditioning in two bedrooms. This made the common areas and the other two bedrooms quite uncomfortable during portions of our trip. Likewise, the walk from the front gate to Villa Mot Mot includes two pretty steep hills. This would present problems for disabled guests or anyone with mobility issues.
All things considered, me and my family enjoyed our stay and would recommend the Estates to anyone traveling to the Quepos/Manuel Antonio Area.
