Boutique Immersive Wildlife Villas

Nestled in tropical jungle minutes from the beach

This location offers the eternal romance of the rainforest, and brings it into the comfort of this hillside, romantic resort.  An eco-style resort, it provides your guests with a homey boutique in the middle of the lush Manuel Antonio rainforest.  The feature include a swimming pool, restaurant, bar, WiFi, complimentary breakfast, and paradise gardens. It has always been a favorite spot for both locals and travelers seeking something special and unique in their lodging experience. 

Perched on a bluff overlooking the glimmering waters of the Pacific Ocean, your guests are able to view velvet sunsets from the comfort of their room.  You’ll be able to wake to the sounds of waves crashing below or monkeys swinging from tree to tree.  Perched high on a jungle bluff, overlooking the shimmering waters of the Pacific and nestled in a lush tropical rain forest with unparalleled sunset views.

Hip, relaxed, romantic ... and full of wildlife! Three species of monkeys, sloths, kinkajous, toucans, and iguanas call this location their home. They often visit you in the restaurant, pool, gardens and room balconies daily foraging or just passing through.  Reintroduced scarlet macaws have been gracing the trees with their beautiful presence. 

They offer 8 different style rooms each with their own unique features for your group to choose from and 13 beds. 

What people are saying:

“The hotel is in a wonderful location.  The views were out of this world and the sunsets were beautiful, we would watch the sunset from the pool every day. I also loved how close we felt to the nature. The monkeys came out every morning to get food, and they would stick around for a couple of hours. We also saw some iguanas. Loved the whole experience overall!! I would definitely recommend staying here!” -- Lea

“A very special magical hotel. We can't rate it highly enough - the location with views to die for, the beautiful spotlessly clean rooms, the lovely breakfasts eaten in the restaurant with spectacular views over the bay, the lovely always clean pool and most of all the wonderful, always helpful staff . We saw more wildlife at the Villas than we saw in all of the national parks. Howler monkeys crossing overhead and in the trees around the hotel, Spider monkeys, Capuchin monkeys and a Sloth on the move as well as Iguanas and Buzzards. It was so magical and made our first trip to Costa Rica a holiday of a lifetime. We loved this hotel and will definitely be back.” -- Liz M.

“The Villa was a real gem and are so glad we had the opportunity to stay at this lovely spot. We saw more wildlife at the hotel than in any of the parks we visited. Three kinds of monkeys, toucans, iguanas, other birds (including beautiful scarlet macaws flying in the distance) delighted us each day. The view from the restaurant was beautiful as we watched the sun set in the evenings and enjoyed drinks and dinner. The pool is small but very refreshing after a long, hot day. If you want personal attention, a great view, and experience seeing wildlife close up, you can't go wrong.” -- N. Bussey

“Our stay was really something special. The hotel is beautiful, cozy and has everything you could possibly need. The fantastic view of the ocean surrounded by jungle is the icing on top of the cake and you have a perfect view of the sunset every day, often in the company of the many monkeys and birds that the area is known for. The hotel staff feels like family and are very welcoming! And the pool is just beautiful. I honestly can't recommend it enough!" --Brenda E.
