This apartment really needs updating. The location is not bad but everything else was. The only thing good I can say was that the air conditioner worked.

Room was very spacious, good layout, hot water, stove and full size fridge, and very big balcony. Also, the grounds have many beautiful varieties of vegetation, I was able to pick a few fresh flowers for my girlfriend every morning. Air conditioning and fans kept the room very comfortable. The only negative thing I can say about this place is there is no 'front desk' or service. Would have never found the place if the other reviews didn't say to stop into the restaurant and ask. That is where they had the paperwork, but people seemed too busy to really check us in, which took about 30 minutes. On the 3rd morning we ran out of TP and they couldn't help us in the restaurant, but the maid who came around in the afternoon did eventually take care of it. But we had no way of getting service otherwise. I would definitely stay there again, but be sure you have everything you need at check in and you are self-sustaining. Also, I recommend Emilio's cafe around the corner for breakfast, coffee and the view. Service is a little slow, but it's nice to sit and relax up there. If you want a pool with a bar and the BEST VIEW IN ALL OF MANUEL ANTONIO, walk over to Mariposa hotel. We spent the better part of 2 days up there! They don't mind you using the facilities, they assume you are going to be spending money at the bar or restaurant. My favorite place in all of the Pacific side of CR, and I stayed and visited over a dozen or so.

We stayed for 5 days in August 2013 and found it overall disappointing and this is why: 1) When we arrived around 3pm on a weekday no one was there to welcome us despite their website and room brochure stating that there'd be someone from 7am to 7pm. 2) The apartment itself was old and not well-maintained. 3) Bedsheets were old and smelly. I don't mind me a little 70s style but then they should offer their apartments (by no means villas, by the way!) for 70s prices. I certainly do mind old bedsheets and lacking room cleanliness (spiderwebs, sticky old couches, dirty corners). 4) In contrast to what they had claimed on the net, no internet was available in the room. TV and DVD player were old and no cable TV available (not that I care much but it had been advertised online). All in all, it wasn't a great place to stay. We had a really nice time in Manuel Antonio despite the place. To be fair, the view from the terrace was nice and the breakfast at the bar wasn't bad. I'd recommend to stay elsewhere but if there's no other room available during the high season you might as well stay at Ylang Ylang.

Beautiful view of the ocean with a private hammock. Walking distance to beach, grocery store, and many bars and restaurants. The sign for the place is kinda small but the villas are connected to Salsipuedes tapas bar. We loved Salsipuedes, especially Marcela and the friendly staff who made us feel very welcome.

Studio 1 I had a great experience! It was my first time in Costa Rica, and I could not have picked a better place to stay. I went on my vacation in March 2013. Went with girlfriend but great for family too.The views at Ylang Ylang are amazing. You over look the pacific, and can even take in the views from your porch laying on a hammock. There is tons of life all around you, animals, birds, and plants. I even got to see toucans right on the property. Staff are all good. One of the best things about the villas is the AC. It was nice to come back after a long day in the sun and have a room with AC. There is also a restaurant right above the villas. They have good food at a good price. The road from quepos to manuel antonio has the most to do on it, and Ylang Ylang is in the perfect location on the road.It is within walking distance to great restaurants, and even a small supermarket. From the hotel you can walk to one beach (Playa Escondida). The walk to the beach is not very long, but it is up hill on the way back. This beach is less crowed compared to the main beach, however the main beach is better for swimming. To get to the main beach your best option is to hop on a bus. Busses run every 15min, and are cheap. One activity I really recommend is the night hike at "Fincas Naturales Wildlife Refuge". This is a great activity. The staff is very nice, and you learn a lot. Also this is a short (3-5min) walk from Ylang Ylang. Walk towards the beach and it will be on your left.

Room was filthy, toilet wouldn't flush, shower wouldn't drain, floors and surfaces dirty, mis-matched thin torn sheets, one pillowcase had cartoons on it, tablecloth on table looked like someone had just eaten on it leaving crumbs, open shelf closet covered in spider webs, had to go to store and buy cleaning products first night. Curtain hanging over sink was un-hemmed and raveling out, not long enough to cover the window. Couldn't shut front curtains, had to pull them together from the middle and clip with a hair clip. Table on balcony was dirty, with a dirty astray on it. After the third night, we couldn't take it. So we went down the street and checked in to a 5 star Resort & Spa for the rest of our 25th anniversary. Lost lots of money on this little adventure. The sign out front posted a much lower rate than what we paid, not low enough for condition of the room. Our safe broke and they had to get someone to hammer it open to get our stuff out. On the up side, bed was comfortable, air conditioning worked, very good restaurant in front. Awesome views.

Das Appartment ist sehr schön gelegen, aber in der Ausstattung verbraucht. Licht und Ventilatoren funktionieren nur teilweise. Das Duschen ist ein Witz: Eine kleines Rinnsal mit heißem wasser ist nervig. Die Außendusche funktioniert gar nicht. Allerdings ist die Lage des und der Ausblick vom Zimmer auf den Ozean hervorragend.

Al leer los comentarios anteriores ya iba preparado para llegar a una cabaña mal señalizada, cuyo único distintivo en la carretera era el letrero del restaurant "Sal si Puedes", también iba preparado para un servicio displicente y una habitación algo sucia. Pero al llegar a destino igual nos desepcionamos, para el restaurant los huéspedes de la cabaña parecen ser una molestia, la suciedad al interior de la cabaña es tal que no pudimos desayunar en ella porque la cafetera estaba literalmente asquerosa. Además no había jabón, fósforos, o aceite, insumos que no representan gran gasto si la estancia es prolongada, pero si se va por pocos días conviene desayunar afuera, otro problema es que no hay Internet en el interior de la cabaña, la única forma de acceder a ella es molestando en la escalera del restaurant o consumiendo adentro, esto es muy molesto, sobretodo de noche con los mosquitos. La vista al mar es hermosa pero no vale la pena por el precio. No recomiendo a nadie alojarse en Océano Villas, pero si aún así lo hace, recomiendo que vayan a la piscina del resort Los Altos, esta muy cerca de la cabaña y dejan utilizarla a cambio de un consumo en el restaurant de 10 mil colones, la mejor vista al mar y el atardecer que tuvimos en Costa Rica, y una experiencia con monos Titi que no olvidaremos.

Oceano Villas no es un hotel, el nombre nadie lo conoce y el telefono indicado no existe. Son 4 cuartos del restaurant "Salsipuedes". Llegamos de noche y no habien llaves para las puertas. Finalmente encontraron una camarera que tenia los llaves que abrian al menos un cuarto. El dia siguiente ya no podiamos cerrar la puerta y teniamos que cuidar el cuarto hasta las 3 de la tarde. No habia empleados que atendieron, ya que el restaurant estuvo cerrado. Perdimos 1 dia de nuestras vacaciones. Afortunadamente hoteles.com nos reembolso todo.

To find it faster, you better ask for the "Salsipuedes" restaurant. They are right behind it. One brother owns the restaurant and the other the villas. Miguel (the owner of the restaurant) is super friendly and so is all the staff from the restaurant. I made it my home (i had to work on my computer over the days) and the internet in the restaurant was super good. Facetime no problem. The villa is more than a hotel room, little kitchen, TV with couch, etc. A little rustic, but clean. The shower was simple, I had way to much hot water... hahaha. Quiet at night, the AC very in very good condition, very powerfull etc. I stayed in the villa no 1. If you can ask for it, go for it : ) it is half way between Quepos and Manual Antonio, on the top of the mountain, so a super view. Using the bus (50 cents, every 15 minutes) is very usefull to get around.

"On your own"
08/17/14 Shane J Calgary, Canada
Thanks to the last reviewer and his note that the villas are located behind Salsipuedes, we probably would not have found the villa. So, yes, better signage would be helpful or better instructions. Also, the ad did mention that you would have access to a concierge but there wasn't anyone to help us - you are on your own. During one particular stormy night, we had 5 leaks in the roof which had us scrambling to keep dry. As for the good things, the location and the view were both very good. In terms of other suggestions for the owners of the villas, given that you also own Salsipuedes, perhaps having complementary breakfast would help encourage hotel guests to eat there more frequently. Would I come back? Now that I know the location more, I would explore other options first.

"Expedia disaster"
05/18/14 Syed A
I booked this place under the name "Oceano Villas" through expedia. There was no proper street address and no signage for this place once you get there so we spent an hour looking for this place. The only street sign they have outside this place is "salsipuedes". We got there and asked about our rooms. Since it was Easter Weekend, despite receiving the payment from expedia, the manager decided to give our room away, even though we had arrived early, at 2 pm. Also, he was not willing to refund what I had already paid. He did make a half hearted attempt to find us alternative accommodations with no success. We were able to find a different place to stay on our own but missed our time slot for ocean kayaking and snorkeling that afternoon. I was very disappointed with Expedia and will not be using them for future needs.

02/04/14 Rae C Saint Paul, Minnesota
What a treat! I actually wanted to give it a 4+. Our villa at Ylang Ylang was beautiful. Everything is super clean. We watched the sun go down over the Pacific every evening on our deck. We could wash off the dirt & salt of the beach in the outdoor shower. Every appliance worked well. The ATM, bus stop, & yogurt ice cream cones were across the street. Manuel Antonio Park is a 10 minute, 50 cent ride as is Quepos.There is a little food market a block away & a quiet public beach about 2 km. A great restaurant, Selsipuedes, is right behind your villa & has wonderful food plus free WiFi. Their breakfasts are under $5. Alex is the manager & couldn't have provided more help. He scheduled all our trips. My only complaint was the thin walls of the villa.

"Better options in the area"
08/19/13 Lauren L Washington DC, District of Columbia
We had a pretty poor experience staying here. If you're traveling on a budget I'd recommend staying somewhere else. There are plenty of better options around. Our room was dirty and the towels were ripped and stained. Pretty gross. It was hard to find the place since their phone number doesn't work and there's no sign in front of the place. It's actually behind Salsipuedes restaurant, which I believe is owned by the same person. The only redeeming thing about the place was the nice view, but since you're in Manuel Antonio you can find that in most places. There were large spiders in the room. The kitchen is supposed to be fully equipped and they don't provide free breakfast for guests for that reason. However, there was no dish soap, sponge or dish towel in our kitchen. The refrigerator was unplugged when we got there and the coffee maker was missing the lid. The place wouldn't be so bad if they actually cared.

The place had a good vibe but it was dirty, as in like the inside of the microwave had spiderwebs, the inside of the fridge was dirty, etc, etc. It seems like the administration does not make any effort to make it better. The outside facilities are pretty nice and the restaurant on the premises looks pretty nice too, we did not eat here. I would not stay here again unless it was clean.

"Very nice, cozy little Villas with great ocean view!"
07/07/13 J J San Francisco, California
The best things about our Villa were the gorgeous ocean view, the seclusion (each Villa has its own walkway and is largely on its own), the air conditioning, which worked very well, and the great price. With the view and seclusion, it is very nice to be able to sit out on the balcony and have breakfast on the little table with the beautiful morning view. It has a more or less full kitchen (didn't have a microwave). The supervisor is very helpful with the room and in helping you arrange other plans such as transportation, adventure tours in the area. The location of the villas is great, in the middle of Manuel Antonio, for quick trips to restaurants, the beach, and downtown Quepos. I would give it 5 stars if not for a few pretty minor things. The sheets and pillows were old and should be replaced. It could be a little cleaner, although I thought that it was generally clean. The wi-fi does not work in the villa itself, but if you walk up to the very close restaurant, it works great. There is not a 24-7 office/reception, and if you get there after hours, there is confusion about your room. None of these things ruined my stay, and I would return.

Loved the hammock while drinking morning coffee and enjoying the view. Must be under new management as Gilbert said he had just opened. Great value for a fully equipped kitchen, wifi, TV. First time I have had daily maid service with clean towels and the maid did the dishes, most unusual for the price. The restaurant has great happy hour deals. The only complaint is the second bed had a very uncomfortable mattress, layers of towels took care of that problem.

"Awesome Place"
05/08/12 Adriane L Chicago, Illinois
We LOVE our villa in Manuel Antonio while we were there. It gave us a nice, personal place to hang out after a long day in the National Park or on the beach. We were there for 7 days and the place was spacious enough not to feel claustrophobic after all of that time. There is a restaurant on the premise that is open fairly late which was convenient. We would stop by most days and pick up ice or buy some water for the night. They also have a guard in the parking lot on duty all night which made us feel much safer, since the villa itself is completely made of screens.
