“I will definitely be back to Manuel Antonio”
Reviewed 4 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This was my first trip to Costa Rica but definitely won't be my last. We loved every minute of our trip. The country, the town, the people, and our home were so welcoming and wonderful. The staff at Casa Tolteca kept everything clean and worked hard to assist in every way possible.
The beaches are the best I've ever seen, especially the one in the national park. But we spent most of our time cooling down with the blender and alcohol, lounging out at the pool. There is so much room around the pool for everyone. And you feel like you are surrounded by jungle and animals. We had monkeys playing in the trees above us as we swam in the pool. Truly a surreal experience.
The location of this home couldn't be better. There is a nice little hotel right across the street that we ate breakfast at almost every day. We could walk to so many restaurants and even down to the beach, but took the bus back up the hill because it's just too hot to walk up the hill after a day at the beach.
Michael, thank you for all of your help planning a large group vacation for us. You went above and beyond to help us coordinate transportation, reservations, and the meals. You and your staff have an amazing place, and we appreciate your willing to share it with us!

“Like your own private hotel in the middle of the rainforest”
Reviewed 20 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Casa Tolteca is great place for a group. It's like having your own private small hotel in the middle of the rain forest. We spent mornings jumping the waves and body surfing in the ocean. We used the boogie boards and took some surfing lessons. The beach is amazing for long walks and collecting shells, and beach volleyball. The sunsets are beautiful from the beach and from the house. Most afternoons were spent in the pool talking and laughing with a few snacks and drinks. After having diner (we appreciate that the house is fully air-conditioned), we listened to music and played our annual monopoly tournament.

The chef and her helper prepared most of our meals. The food was absolutely amazing. Meals we ate at the local restaurants were good but Marisol's were better.

Thomas was extremely helpful during our stay. He booked 3 excursions and made reservations for some restaurant dinners. Everyone loved the zip lining and Mangrove tour. But the best was seeing the monkeys at the house. Thomas was like a local friend we could always call to assist us with anything we needed and answer any questions we had.

Book Tolteca if you are looking for a beautiful home, amazing food, great pool and a relaxed environment where you can enjoy vacationing with your friends and family. We would not hesitate to return.

“Everything was perfect”
Reviewed 15 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

I researched many places to stay in Manuel Antonia and was hoping that my final selection would be the right one. It turned out to be the perfect selection for our family. There were 13 of us in our extended family for this once in a lifetime vacation. The home was very comfortable, beautiful grounds, well appointed and had everything we needed. The location was close to restaurants and we could walk almost everywhere. The beach was a little too far to walk however the bus was convenient and less than $1 each way. We had a chef prepare our dinner one night and we all raved about it the rest of the week. Angie made all of our reservations for the excursions that we took and she couldn't have been more helpful. The 10 in 1 tour with ADR was the BEST and we did the rafting trip with ADR - also a blast. My husband and all the guys went sport fishing and caught sailfish, tuna and marlin. It was very hot but the house was comfortable. We made friends with the monkeys, who came by most afternoons to have a bite to eat with us. Great Vacation!! P.S. if you go to the public beach go all the way to the far right where it is a little more private.

“Amazing week with my family,”
Reviewed 26 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

My entire family (8 adults and 5 young children) traveled to Costa Rica to stay at Casa Tolteca. for a week in March. Not knowing what to expect we were thrilled when we arrived. The house was private and lots of room for everyone. The kids loved the pool. There was so much support from the staff at the house. We had activities planned and had the time of our lives. We cannot wait to come back to Costa Rica and stay in Casa Tolteca next year. My family rated this vacation an A+
