Met our expectations and more. The staff is very friendly and helpful. From restaurant recommendations to answering any little question you may have. Julio and Alejandra were wonderful. Both security guards were also very friendly and the ladies who made fresh breakfast every morning were the sweetest. We stayed in room 6 (up). The room was clean and had an...

Villas Nicolas was amazing. Our villa was clean, comfortable and had an amazing porch and view. Alejandra pointed us to restaurants and booked all our tours- she totally steered us right. Kayaking through the mangroves with William, walking through Manual Antonio Park with Henry and rappelling with Hiro 1, Hiro 2, and Michael. Great location with super market, bank and...

At first we entered the room and were very disappointed the room had a smell of dust and the bathroom and all the furniture looked outdated and old. I asked to switch the room and immediately gave us another much better room. A huge balcony with sea view and jungel right upon us..3 types of monkeys went through that trees...

It is the only place I want to go back to. We travel quite a bit but Villa Nicolas, is a paradise inside the beautiful country. If it is not enough to be located on top of a cliff over looking the Pacific Ocean, we also get the gift of the monkeys and toucans playing in the jungle all visible...

First off, the staff were all so friendly and helpful! Location was perfect, we often walked to the beach and brought the bus back for about 60 cents. Lots of wonderful spots to eat, with a variety of foods. We did several incredible tours with the staffs recommendations and booking them for us. Our accomodations were very comfortable and we...

We loved the location and used the bus system constantly to get to Manuel Antonio National Park easily. So many good restaurants in walking distance, we never ate dinner in the same place twice all week. Even with all that around the views off the deck are pristine and gorgeous. We had about 80% forest view, 20% ocean view and...

This apartment ( number 11) was a fabulous home from home wonderfully furnished, equipped and just gorgeous with original art work. The terrace was well furnished with fantastic views towards the sea. Lots of wildlife visible from the hotel, monkeys, toucans, hummingbirds etc. The Villa is on the road through Manuel Antonio so some rooms may be noisy. Ours wasn't....

We stayed for two nights, 2/27 and 2/28. The "room" was beyond expectations. It is really a well furnished condominium with a large balcony with a hammock, overlooking the jungle and the ocean. We stayed in room#3. Breakfast was good but not exceptional. The staff were extremely pleasant and very helpful. On our last morning while eating breakfast a howler...

My husband and I had visited Manuel Antonio previously, upon return we decided to try hotel villas Nicholas. Mainly as it had exceptional reviews we had high hopes, but there were a few slight disappointments. The location is fantastic with good views from the property, the swimming was nice and the gardens well kept, making it a pretty setting. Most...
