We did not stayat the hotel. I could not find a way to review the restaurant seperately. It was a recommended to us by a lovely canadian woman who works at a great shop near the bank. The blackened tuna was incredibly fresh and cooked to perfection. My family loved their meals as well and the service was great.

First I have to say the staff was very friendly and accommodating. Nice quaint boutique hotel and very reasonably priced. The only 2 complaints I had was the bed smelled a little musty. I think it is because of the humidity and they don't turn on AC in room until people rent it. Second their is no TV. I thought...

We stayed in a 2-room suite, nice and roomy for three people (#11). I loved the balcony (and hammock) with a view of the ocean and jungle. The two wooded, arched doorways that opened to the balcony were a nice touch. We could hear the ocean as we sat on the balcony, but also enjoyed all the monkeys and the...

Wow! What a great place. Our huge room (nr 3) was big with kithen, a very big terrace with ocean view, a living room, a nice bedroom and a good bathroom. The style of the house was very nice, we felt home soon. The room was very pricey, but because of the low season we could make it a bit...

My husband and I spent two nights at Villas Nicolas, and of all the places we stayed while in Costa Rica, we most wish we could go back to Villas Nicolas! While it was the most expensive place we stayed, it was absolutely amazing. We had Villa #3 up, which had a gorgeous view of the ocean and the treetops....

We made the unfortunate decision to stay here on our way back to San Jose from Uvita for the last night of our honeymoon. At the beginning, it seemed like this was a property with beautiful landscaping and beautiful views for a reasonable price. Because it does have all of those things I will give it a second star. The...

When I spoke personally with this guest, the only complaint he had was the lack of telephone service after hours in his room. I am therefore surprised at the litany of complaints that are mentioned here. They arrived on a "walk in " basis for 1 night in the evening prior to our reception closing. The receptionist answered their questions...

Their website says they may not be for everyone, but we cannot find a vault! The service has been terrific, the room is unbelievable, and the grounds are beautiful! We have a large private patio outside our small room with seating and a hammock and an unbelievable view across the forest to the beach below. The pool is a good...

This is a postdated review. My fiance and I traveled to Manuel Antonio in January of 2009 and absolutely loved this hotel. The balcony itself and the view were definitely the highlights! This hotel met all of our needs- budget, location, privacy, and experience. The hotel provides a very serene, tropical, feel. It's in a great location on a street...

Our units have all been updated and we are frequently "tweaking"" things here and there at Villas Nicolas. Cleanliness is one of our priorities, many of our reviewers have congratulated us on it , and if "the ball was dropped" in your case we will definitely heed your comments on this.
