Guestbook comments from the owner

I really don't know where to begin. 3 families totaled 19 happy guests. We had to pinch ourselves to realize if this was all real. Well it was, we were in paradise. Geralyn, Ana, Maria, Michól, everyone made our experience just absolutely "wonderful". They were all kind, sweet and very accommodating. We were surrounded by natures beauty and there was no other place we would have liked to have been during the new year - 2017! I am looking forward to return to this fantastic beauty!

This is your own Private Resort, no doubt about it!

  • 5 of 5

We had one of the best last minute vacations in our life's (not lying about it) We were worried about storm Nate because we checked in one week after CR was hit by the storm. As soon as we drove past the gate of Villa Pelicano, we knew we were in paradise and that we had make the right choice.

Geralyn was waiting for us and gave us a tour of the house, the chef and the maids were great and so attentive. We felt like home throughout our stay at Villa Pelicano. We had so much fun at the pool and 5 acres of land just for you is like a dream. Restaurants , bars and grocery stores are walking distance from Villa Pelicano. We hope to be back in the near future and hopefully we have more time to discover the beauty of the Manuel Antonio area.

Beautiful property with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best trips we ever took. We joined 20 family and friends at this property and had a great time. The house and the service were unbelievable. Fantastic service for a very reasonable price. All our meals were fresh, delicious food. We received help in planning our excursions to waterfalls to repel, kayak and catamaran. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The pool was key during the heat of the day.

The house is impressive!

  • 5 of 5

The house was impressive for many reasons. It was beautiful, very clean and felt very safe. The view from the house was amazing, as you could see beautiful forest and animals and of course the spectacular Pacific Ocean view. All of the staff were incredibly nice, helpful and professional. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.

Amazing location, amazing staff.

  • 5 of 5

The house and casita were better than I ever could have imagined. The pictures do not do it justice.

The finishes of the house are truly upscale and, yet, very comfortable.

Ana and Maria, our chefs that cooked for us daily, not only provided fresh, delicious food; they were so welcoming and friendly, we felt cared for on many levels.

We had the excitement of a scarlet macaw nest right next to the house.

We enjoyed the entertainment of spider monkeys performing in the trees (and becoming very friendly with us).

I will never forget the sounds of the howler monkeys that we could never quite locate, but were awesome to hear echo off the mountains and ocean below.

The 'backyard' of this property is truly wonderful. Beautiful landscaping and grass you can run barefoot upon.

I truly hope I can come back to this property and introduce family and friends to the Pura Vida experience.

A fabulous place for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful time at Villa Pelicano. The place is beautiful and the staff made this one of our best family reunions. There were 22 of us ranging in age from 8 - 84 who were celebrating my mom's 80th birthday. The house easily accommodated all of us, is quiet and very private. The view from the villa is gorgeous, even when it is raining (we had some great lightning displays at night.) The rooms are large and comfortable. There is one room in the Casita that did not have air conditioning, but the kids staying there didn't seem bothered by that (the other 2 rooms in the Casita do have air conditioning.) If you are going to use the Casita, be aware that it is a very steep climb up the driveway to get there from the main house. I would not recommend it for anyone with mobility issues. While we had rain almost every night, the days were beautiful and even when it rained, we were able to be outside on the covered veranda. The pool was perfect - great water temperature, large, and with a nice deep end. There were even a number of pool toys that the kids enjoyed - such a nice touch! We also loved watching several macaws who were nesting in a nearby tree, along with other interesting wildlife. Geralyn, whose English is impeccable, was a huge help before our trip, answering numerous emails quickly and providing valuable information. She also arranged to have the house decorated with happy birthday signs and flowers. Geralyn booked us on five tours and arranged to have 2 excellent musicians come one night - she made it the easiest vacation to plan. While we were at the villa, Geralyn was just a phone call or text message away and was helpful in making transportation arrangements, or anything else we needed. She was there to greet us when we arrived and stopped by the next day to see how we were doing. Chef Ana and her daughter were marvelous. Every meal was delicious and Ana was more than willing to accommodate our dietary needs. The house is well-situated - there is a grocery store right across the street, though Ana was also able to order the groceries for us when she ordered the food for our meals. We were within an hour of most of the tours, and only a short bus ride away from Quepos or downtown Manuel Antonio. The bus was cheap and easy to use. Of the tours that we went on, I would highly recommend the ziplining tour and the vacation buggy tour (our favorite.) Thank you Geralyn, Ana, and all for a wonderful vacation.

Amazing week stay and wedding!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the time of our life here! :) Every thing was great! If you want to have your group together in a tropical paradise with no worries...come here. The concierge, Geralyn, was so quick to help plan and call for taxis and do whatever was needed. She even helped order a birthday cake! Chef Ana was amazing! If you do stay here be sure to have her cook you dinners and breakfasts! We had breakfast every morning and dinners most nights. It was cheaper than eating out, more intimate, and tasted better! I recommend the lasagna or the taco bar with quesadillas. All staff were superb! The pool is lovely and offers a nice relaxing area for your group to sit around an outstanding view. Also, macaws fly by just about every day and we spotted monkeys from our pool! We will return!
