Overview

Photos and Description of this Manuel Antonio holiday condo

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom (sleeps 6)

You will find the condo extremely comfortable and luxuriously furnished along with a view that will take your breath away! There are 2 large bedrooms (King in Master, 2 singles that can be combined in second bedroom) and 2 full baths along with a spacious living area (with queen size sofa bed) that opens onto a huge patio running the length of the apartment overlooking the Pacific and rainforest for gorgeous sunsets and watching the wildlife around. It is wonderful outdoor space for dining and relaxing.

The apartment has all modern conveniences including wireless internet and cable flat screen TV. The kitchen is well equipped and ideal for somebody who enjoys to cook. With just 10 units, the building is very well managed and maintained receiving rave reviews in our guestbook. Concierge service is provided onsite.

While secure private covered parking is provided for your own car you can still get around easily without one or just choose to rent a car while you're here for a few days to explore further afield.

The condo is located on the road between Quepos and Manuel Antonio Park. Within a 5 minute walk are many highly rated restaurants, well stocked supermarkets, bank/ATM and gym.

The local bus runs every 20/30mins between Quepos and Manuel Antonio Park during daylight hours and stops right outside the condo (60cents ). Taxis are plentiful and relatively cheap ($8 to park or Quepos) . Prices updated as of March 2016

About Steve

A guy who has a passion for travel and exploring what this planet has to offer.

Steve purchased this condo in 2007

Why Steve chose Puntarenas

First visit to Costs Rica in 98 and fell in love with its magic right away. Returned nearly every year exploring different places but always included a week in Manuel Antonio. Perfect mix of natural beauty with the right amount of things to do and places to eat.

Never had any intention of buying property in Costa Rica until a good friend of mine who lectures in architecture in San Jose told me about this place. He said it was AMAZING! Went down to look and my jaws dropped when I saw the spectacular view and the quality of the construction and features. The rest is history....

What makes this condo unique

The condo is positioned such that you get a spectacular view facing west over the Pacific Ocean (horizon is 35 miles away ) and close to tree top level for great animal and bird watching.

Unlike most condos it is furnished and equipped as I would want my home to be.

Plan to spend very little time indoors, however, because the best place is the patio/balcony. My favorite times are just as the sun rises or sets.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is not a hotel. These are big beautiful 2 & 3 bedroom condos.I think 10 units total. Our's had a fully equipped kitchen (even a juicer & fondue set). We only had breakfast in the the condo, lunch and dinner we walked to nearby restaurants. There are 3 grocery stores within a 5 min. walk & a 5 min. cab ride to the Park or beach.



There is a small pool & deck, we ran into 3 other guests once. The balconies are huge with great loungers overlooking jungle and the ocean. Fantastic sunsets!



The 2 front desk managers were incredibly helpful & professional.



I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Manuel Antonio.

Beautiful condo, walk to everything, awesome view

  • 5 of 5

This two bedroom condo has an entire wall of windows looking over the pacific ocean and leading out to a huge second outside living and dining room. We walked to everything including both the public and private beaches, Manuel Antonio park, and all of the restaurants we wanted to go to. The concierge is very helpful and arranges anything you want to do, and since they live here, they set you up with the best tours and guides. We asked a lot of questions and always got helpful answers. We were here in the "rainy" season but had lots of sun everyday and no crowds anywhere. October is a great month to visit.

Beautiful condo in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Manual Antonio last week and we can't say enough about our experience! The condo is perfect! It was clean and spacious and the view is breathtaking! Eilyn and Lenin helped us plan every detail of our vacation! I'm not sure what we would've done without them! They were so friendly and helpful with all of our questions and requests! The condo is centrally located and it is so easy to get anywhere just by walking out the front door. We took the bus to several locations but it's also walking distance to lots of good restaurants and shops. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the Manual Antonio area!

We loved everything about Pacifico Colonial. The condo was perfect, and so was everyone working there.

Beautiful condo, great view, great location.

  • 5 of 5

Family of five. First time in Costa Rica. There for a week. The balcony is spectacular. Wonderful view of the Pacific. A 5' iguana spent most of the week in a tree right off the balcony. The rest of the condo was large, pretty, and quite comfortable. We walked to most of our meals in the numerous restaurants near by. Grocery store, bus stop, atm; all quite close. Great week.

Gorgeous condo, highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our two children ages 12 and 9. We highly recommend this condo to anyone interested in Manuel Antonio - the condo is absolutely beautiful and wonderfully comfortable. We enjoyed the deck, the beautiful views, the pool, the comfortable beds, the hot showers, and the great location - an easy walk to several great restaurants, and a very short cab ride to the beach and the park. The staff here is SO friendly and helpful. They were especially helpful in answering questions before we arrived, as this was our first trip to Costa Rica. They recommended a driver to pickup from the airport, and we are so glad we did that - it was so much more relaxing than renting a car, and we definitely didn't need one in Manuel Antonio once we were there. We did many wonderful things while in the area, and would particularly recommend Amigos Del Rio for great customer service. This is a truly beautiful place, thank you to Steve and the folks at Pacifico Colonial for a great stay!

Best vaca ever

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have had a better experience at Pacifico Colonial over Thanksgiving. The condos themselves are beautiful and the views even better. The staff there was extremely helpful in every aspect you could imagine. They scheduled dinner reservations, excursions, gave recommendations, and were always willing to help if we needed something. We are already planning our next trip back here. 11/10!
