“Perfect house, perfect view, perfect property manager.”
Reviewed 9 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We did a 3 night stay at this amazing home in July of 2013. From start to finish, we were beyond impressed. The home is 4 stories of trying to figure out which floor offered more amenities or style. We had a baby with us, so we were looking for the Manuel Antonio Park to visit us so we wouldn't have to leave the home. And the Park delivered big time as the wildlife was at our doorstep including the white faced monkeys who made a living room showing to snag a few eggs that were left on the counter. Got a great video of them in action. Ricky was the best host that I've ever encountered as he was always helpful and never seemed bothered by any requests. Some restaurants deliver and there is a phone list for all of them organized well at the house. There is also daily maid service and they clean thoroughly. So for the price and location as well as incredible view, this house cannot be beat in this area.

“Beautiful view, comfortable accomdations and friendly staff at Dolce Vita”
Reviewed 6 May 2013 for a stay in July 2011

I have nothing but great things to say about our trip to Costa Rica. A group of eight of us stayed Dolce Vita during the low season and it was amazing. The staff took great care of us. Ricky took care of whatever we needed and organized our adventures (deep-sea fishing, white-water rafting and zip-lining). Mina kept the place immaculate - there were a few nights when we went to sleep that I was not looking forward to cleaning the next morning and woke up to find the kitchen, dining and living-room spotless. It was also a great surprise to come back from the beach and have the beds made and clothes cleaned. The pool guys and security staff always made us feel safe.

There are plenty of great restaurants in the area and nightlife to be found as well so we never ran out of things to do.

A few reccomendations:
- Bring comfortable walking shoes - everywhere you go is either up or downhill.
- Speak a little spanish with the staff, cab drivers and bartenders - it goes a long ways.
- Try to wake up early so that you get a chance to have breakfast with the monkeys and take full advantage of the days.
- If you see a storm coming in, be prepared for some wind and close up if possible.
- Go whitewater rafting!

“Wow! .... I found Paradise!”
Reviewed 4 May 2013 for a stay in July 2011

This was as close as you can get for a perfect vacation for me. The location is perfect for those of us who enjoy being active. I was able to mountain bike, whitewater raft, ride ATV's and take leisurely wanders through the National Park. It was a pleasure to be able to return to the Villa after a full day of activities and soak in the pool while gazing at the stunning views of the magnificent Costa Rican Coast.
