Trip Advisor Review October 19, 2013 for a stay in October 2013
From the moment that our group arrived until the moment that we left a week later, we were in paradise. After our drive with Ronald from San Jose, Sabrina, our lovely hostess, greeted us upon arrival with a smile that lasted the entire week. Everyone on Sabrina’s team, especially Juan, our fantastic chef and Manuela, the angel who cleaned up every morning after us, were beyond words. One of the highlights each day was returning to the house after a day out and finding the towel origami that Manuela had created for us on our beds.
The house was gorgeous-tastefully decorated, clean, airy, so close to the beach, and safe. We never had to worry about anything. A forgotten key? A question about the AC unit? A call to Sabrina and everything was set.
The location was perfect for us. Every morning, we could stumble to the beach, rent a beach chair and enjoy a local breakfast (with margarita, of course) and plan the rest of our day. Back to the house for a quick dip in the pool, we would spend the afternoon relaxing on the terrace and then get ready for whatever we had planned for the afternoon. Finally, after dinner and a night out, we retired back to the house for a quick hot tub fix before heading to bed.
The Manuel Antonio/Quepos area is gorgeous- rich in culture and entertainment. With the beach at our fingertips and the rain forest nearly just as close, we had so much to fill our days. I recommend taking the bus into Quepos to do some exploring like a local-great produce at the market (La Feria), fresh meat from the butchers in town, great conversation with residents.
Sabrina knows everyone! A few in our group wanted to have a fun night out in town. She put us in touch with Lisa, the bartender at Karma, one of the local bars (with great drinks and great decor) and Diego, a friend of hers who knew what was happening in town and knows all about the nightlife. Diego palled around with us for the remainder of our trip-showing us around, answering questions, even making dinner for us one night!
A++ Vacation. Reviewed October 19, 2013 for a stay in October 2013
