Paolo's place was an ideal location close to both the beach and the park. It offered all anyone would want. A very short walk to either location and no parking to pay for.

The apartment is very nice, well kept, and a three minute walk to the beach. It is a perfect location to use as a base of operations to explore all that Manuel Antonio has to offer. I highly recommend it!

Paolo's place is just minutes from the beach and the park entrance and yet a quiet place to return to from a rather hectic Manuel Antonio. Paolo and his team were wonderful hosts and I never lacked for anything. Help was prompt and suggestions for things to do were plenty. Had a fantastic and memorable stay.

There are so many things I could write about this place, but I'll start with the location. It was PERFECT! It was truly only a couple minutes away (walking distance) to both the beach and the Manual Antonio National Park entrance, just as advertised. The next thing we loved about this place was the abundance of wildlife RIGHT OUTSIDE of the room! We saw howler monkeys, white-faced capuchins, and so much more, without even venturing out! We communicated frequently with Paolo over texts, and we met Norma in person. They are both very friendly and went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful. The room itself was very comfortable, and it had a full kitchen that we used to cook several dinners. The shower had hot water on demand, and the air conditioner felt great in the extremely humid weather. We will definitely stay here again when we visit Manual Antonio in the future!

Ideal location for Manuel Antonio park and beach. The host was informative, helpful, and followed through when a pluming issue arose without it interfering with our stay. Be sure to be prepared for muddy paths if raining. On the walk from the main road, parts could have big puddles and lots of mud. I recommend staying here for the proximity to the park/beach and value.

Paolo's place is amazing for those who want to go to Manuel Antonio. It's in an amazing location, literally a 2 minute walk from the beach or the park. Norma and her son, Johnny, were very welcoming and treated me like family, telling me all sorts of places to go. Johnny even walked me to one of the restaurants to make sure I went to a good one in the area. All in all, great trip, and would stay here again.

Response from Paolo:
thanks a lot for your wonderful review Roland, I am honestly so happy that my friends Norma and her son made you feel so welcome like family, they are my blessing, too. Please come back again and hope to meet you personally next time
