We stayed four 4 nights at Casa Macaw. 20 Minutes after our arrival we were greeted by a probably 30 monkeys coming to check us out. Our 3 year old was ecstatic. We saw them again for the following two nights. However the best part was the pair of Tucans. Dorit and Luis were more than helpfull and great with...

We had originally booked/paid(non refundable $1400) to stay a week at La Foresta Nature Resort, but was informed after doing so that they had closed down, so they set us up at Manuel Antonio Estates in a luxury villa, even receiving an email with pictures/descriptions. When we arrived, there was no villa we were set up in. In fact we...

Dear Traveler, If you booked a luxury resort for $1,400 per week through your agency, of course your expectations would be different. Our condo's are $600 per week (please check our website to confirm the rates) and this is what we received for your booking. We do not represent them as a luxury resort, they are targeted at self catering,...

This is our second time at MAE. I am bewildered by the few reviews that indicate that suites are dusty. We have stayed at two of the condos and one of the homes. All were immaculate. Dorit and Luis are wonderful. I completely blew our reservations this last trip, and we ended up three nights short in our condo. Luis...

My Daughter & I spent 5 nights at Manuel Antonio Estates just before Christmas. We had a GREAT time! We did several great "adventures" while we were there, all arranged by Dorit in the M A E Office. She scheduled them exactly as we had asked- Zip lining, waterfall rappelling, and a sunset sailing trip. All with door-to-door service made...

I stayed Happy Jacana in Manuel Antonio Estates with a group of 14 friends (7 couples) from December 29th through January 5th, and we were incredibly impressed by the beauty of Happy Jacana, the convenient location, and the amazing staff at Manuel Antonio Estates. The community is gated with 24/7 security at both the front entrance and near the rear...

Our family of five stayed at Casa Macaw. When we arrived, we were greeted by a small troupe of capuchin monkeys as they were passing through. The space was great for our needs to have a place to relax, make meals and have fun together, but close enough to Quepos to walk or jump on a "Micro" and head to...

The place was easy to find, it is just outside the town of Quepos, but easy walk/drive to stores, or to downtown Quepos. It is in a secure compound, and they are individually owned houses/villas managed by a property management as a vacation rental. We stayed in Villa Mot Mot. A good 15 minute drive along the beach road to...

We stayed at Casa Chalet, a privately owned home in Manuel Antonio Estates. The estate manager, Dorit, was incredibly helpful. The house was fantastic, very peaceful, and accommodating. Amazing bathroom! I had been in Costa Rica for 2 months and was accustomed to the heat, but my boyfriend was only down for the week from Colorado (USA) so wasn't used...

I am here at MAE right now and have read some previous reviews and had a good laugh. Thank you to the people who wrote poor reviews because they gave me some comedic relief. I read it takes "20 minutes to walk to town". I would ask how many times you got lost but here that is impossible. 10 minutes...

We had a wonderful time in Jacana at Manuel Antonio Estates. The house is equipped, beautifully maintained and provided a fantastic setting for our 4 day wedding preparation and celebration.
