"Terrific place to stay close to Manuel Antonio NP"
12/25/14 AtlantaRichard Atlanta, Georgia
This is a wonderful place to stay for 1 night or much longer if you want a great location close to Manuel Antonio NP. Set atop a hill just a couple of miles outside of Quepos, this property has much to offer. First and foremost, Eilyn and Marta will do everything in their power to optimize your stay. They will make arrangements for any activities you want, and you can trust their recommendations. In addition, the property and units are extremely spacious. We had reserved a unit on the 3rd floor, but we were upgraded to the penthouse. This unit had a huge living/dining/kitchen area, as well as 2 very large bedrooms and bathrooms. It does not have a restaurant on premises, but it is also within a very short walking distance of several very good eateries. There is also private, garaged parking, and a small pool area. We would gladly stay here again if we have a chance to visit this area in the future.
"Beautiful Condo with Gorgeous Views"
08/10/14 Kandis A Burlington, New Jersey
We can not say enough about the accommodations at the Pacifico Colonial. We stayed in the 2-bedroom condo which was beautifully decorated with all the modern amenities you could ask for. The large balcony provides you with an awesome view of the ocean. We saw 2 large iguanas in the trees directly in front of our balcony. Martha and Eilyn are fantastic. They took care of booking all of our tours and were extremely helpful with answering all of our questions regarding where to eat and how to get there. We did not have a car and found public transportation very easy to use. Also the driver they recommended, Abraham, was wonderful. He transported us from the airport to Arenal, Arenal to Manuel Antonio, then from Manuel Antonio back to the airport. He was on time for all transfers and very eager to share his knowledge of the local scenery along the way. Pacifico is in a convenient location to many great restaurants, banking, and a supermarket. We felt extremely safe walking everywhere day or night. We saw monkeys playing in the trees along the road while walking to shops and restaurants. We definitely felt as though we selected the best accommodations that Manuel Antonio has to offer.
"A sloth 15 feet from our balcony!"
08/03/14 JohnP3172014 Campbell, California
We really enjoyed our stay at Pacifico Colonial! We had a sloth and an iguana in the tree directly off our patio, which had an amazing view of the ocean. The place was large, clean, modern and fully equipped. The bus stopped directly in front of the place, which was extremely convenient for trips into town, the beach or the park. Our flight got moved a day and Eilyn and Martha merely adjusted our stay by a day without any problems. We can't wait to come back and stay again!
"Most fabulous accommodations, EVER!"
08/02/14 BSM84 Friendswood, Texas
This was without a doubt the best place we have ever stayed. Best requires more than just a comfy bed and Pacifico Colonial had everything you could possibly need. It was spacious, clean and included a balcony fit for royalty. Eilyn and Martha left no stone unturned in seeing that we enjoyed everything possible during our stay in Manuel Antonio. Trust them completely in making your plans. We were thrilled with every arrangement they made for us. We highly recommend dinner prepared at home one night, possibly more. We were wined and dined by Anna, one of the best chefs we've ever enjoyed, and had enough for leftovers for lunch the next day. We hated to leave more than just Pacifico Colonial. We felt we were leaving friends in Eilyn and Martha. We don't normally return to places we've visited, always anxious to travel to new places. However, we can't wait to return to Pacifico Colonial. If you're looking for a spacious place to stay, convenient to the super market, bus stop (at your door), fabulous view, amazing balcony AND a great value, it's all at Pacifico Colonial.
"Beautiful Accomodations and Stunning View"
08/01/14 karenwtoronto Toronto, Canada
This was our first trip to Costa Rica (family of four including two boys 11 and 13). We stayed in 3 North at Pacifico Colonial for 4 nights in July. This was by far the best rental we have stayed at in all our travels. It was clean, spacious,tastefully decorated and reasonably priced. It was perfect for our family. We had two separate bedrooms with the boys each having their own beds and bathroom giving them their own space. We had a huge master bedroom with separate bathroom, walk-in closet and even a desk area for our computer. The kitchen met our needs with state of the art appliances and basic tableware to have breakfast every morning, some lunches and dinners. And if the condo was missing anything that we needed for cooking the staff were quick to accommodate us by locating what we needed and providing it to us within minutes. A washing machine and dryer were also in the condo which was a must for our active family. The balcony was absolutely beautiful. We sat out and enjoyed our morning coffees while taking in the spectacular view. It also had a outdoor dining set which would be perfect for dinner. When searching for places to stay we were hesitant about booking this place as we were originally looking for a beachfront location. However, we were so glad we chose Pacifico Colonial as the view and accommodations were outstanding. There is a small pool on the premises to cool off in. We always had it to ourselves which was nice. A three toed sloth and iguana were often hanging out in the trees next to the pool -amazing to see. We were on the main floor so could just pop out our door and ask questions to the staff. They were always friendly and helpful along with the security guards at night and in the early morning. This is a gated property which we also liked. Although we were on street level, there was no problem at all with noise. And the location was great, we could walk to the supermarket and shops or would hop on the local bus to go to Quepos or Manuel Antonio Park. And the bus stop was directly across the street in front of Victorias (great pizza!). Thanks again to the great staff at Pacifico Colonial and especially to Eilyn who we connected with before our trip to help plan our vacation and was so helpful during our stay. Gracias.
"Great experience at Pacifico Colonial!"
07/13/14 Tom W Suwanee, Georgia
We stayed at two places in Manuel Antonio and this was my personal favorite. This is a very small property (11 units?) and that's simply perfect for a relaxing vacation. We stayed in 2 South and the views were dramatic and beautiful - just at the treeptops where you feel you are in the jungle but high enough on the hill to see the lush landscape, ocean and mountains. The rooms are very large and very well appointed - feels very luxurious. Ours was a three bedroom, which worked great for us. Washer and dryer is a great thing to have while vacationing. We used the kitchen often. The balcony is immense - we spent all of our time out there, enjoying each other's company and the beautiful view and took all of our meals there. The pool is perfect (small but cozy). As we were generally the only ones using it, I didn't wish for any more. The bus does stop right in front of the hotel, which is very convenient - we used it often. Eilyn and Martha were outstanding in helping us plan our trip and were so nice and helpful while we were there. You can't underestimate the convenience of a concierge right there every time you enter or leave the hotel or when you simply have a question. We also had the opportunity to meet Melissa, who was simply lovely and gracious. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
"Beautiful place to stay!"
06/23/14 CAFamily Northern CA
We spent 5 nights in the 2N unit of Pacifico Colonial. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a/c, Wi-Fi, comfortable furniture, amazing kitchen, and a stunning view from the balcony! We LOVED it here. I looked at so many different places to stay in M.A., but knew we'd want something bigger than just a hotel room so we could stretch out a bit. There was plenty of space in the condo, and being able to cook a bit was nice, too. Oh--and being able to have a washer & dryer was great, too, since we'd spent 5 nights in La Fortuna before coming to M.A. The concierge staff was also wonderful and set-up many tours for us (at no extra charge). They were great at answering our questions and giving advice about things to see/do. The pool is a bit small, but perfect for cooling off and relaxing. The bus stops in front of the complex every 15 minutes, and it's only about 60 cents to take it down to the beach (or anywhere else it goes). Restaurants and the market are also nearby. We highly recommend this place!
"What a view!!!"
06/08/14 Roy H
We stayed at the EOC and PC during our visit. Our stay at PC was kinda like coming home to a 1st world country where everything worked, but when you look out at the ocean through the jungle canopy you know you are in paradise. The location is fantastic and there is a nearby store that has everything from NY strips to tabasco sauce. We travel with our kids and love cooking. The kitchen was up to par and we wanted for nothing. The beds were awesome, the bathrooms were works of art and I love having 5 channels of television in english (i think they had german and italian stations as well). the Internet worked. The staff was awesome. I am critical and have nothing bad to say. It was all good to great. The views are nothing short of phenomenal. The balconies are large and you never know what you will see. In the morning you may have a squirrel monkey on the porch or see toucans in the trees and every now and then a huge iguana going after fruit on the jungle trees. There was a breath taking sunset everyday. I could go on about how great this place is, but just book it and see for yourself......
"Concierge service is given a 5 Star Rating"
06/01/14 Lynn S
I must not delay any longer after having stayed at PC for eight enjoyable times, over the course of seven years. PC is the best value for your money. It is centered in the best location of Manual Antonio, where restaurants, small local stores and the bus to Manual Antonio Beach is right out your door. The parking is gated and secured by guards 24-7. (not that you need that much security). The view out your private balcony is breath taking. The management of the Villas have been Tropicalsunvillas, the same since conception which I will give 5 stars and the credit to the concierge service which is expected from a five star Villa. Concierge's are Melissa, Eilynn, and the newest addition to there concierge service organization is Martha, Tropicalsunvillas.com has personally selected Martha to serve you as you expect from a hospitality Villa. Thanks for your attention to detail, Your the BEST!
"National Sales Meeting"
05/29/14 JenMat M Canonsburg, Pennsylvania
Our group rented out the entire Pacifico Colonial for a unique National Sales Meeting. Melissa and her staff were instrumental in all planning phases; transportation, stocking rooms with food & beverages, private chefs and menu, activities, and off site meals. Melissa was also instrumental in connecting our team with a local school that we raised funds for to assist with a playground project. The attention to detail and service we received were beyond exceptional. During our week stay, our every need was granted and Melissa and her staff went from business contacts to dear friends. On several occassions we invited them to join us for after hour fun and dinners becaue we enjoyed their company so much. Everyone agreed that we've never had a more perfect event. The resort and views are amazing, only second to the service we received. Thank you Melissa, Eilyn, Maria and staff for the most amazing sales meeting and your friendship.
