We booked a two bedroom Condo. It was wonderful, a huge balcony beautiful views. The Concierges Lenin and Eilyn were wonderful. They are high character individuals who cared about our experience. They helped us with all our activities and even helped us book a couple of flights on the local airlines. Manuel Antonio is a lovely place to visit and this was an excellent home base to come back to. The kitchen was equipped, there is a grocery store in walking distance and the room and bed was very comfortable.
The condo is spacious, clean, and beautiful inside. But we spent much of our time out on the 4th floor balcony enjoying the superb view and bird watching. Our family favorite bird became the Great Kiskadee - they are vocal and fun to watch. There are scarlet macaws nesting in a hollow palm tree, green parakeets eating the flowers in the tree tops just off the balcony, and occasional toucans flying by. The location is excellent and we took advantage of the local bus which runs very frequently to get to the beach. A few things we appreciated about the condo that we weren't sure of just from seeing the pictures when we booked: there is a large shower in the second bathroom, there is a large washer and dryer in the condo, and the ocean seems closer than I expected. The view is outstanding, and always changing with the waves, clouds, birds, boats, and sunset.
Lenin and Eilyn were a great help any time we needed anything. They helped us find the best guide (Johan) for the park, arranged drivers, and shared their experience with the many local restaurants.
Pacifico Colonial was a perfect place to stay and an excellent base from which to explore Manuel Antonio and Quepos. We would definitely stay here again.
We decided to book at PC after all the hotels in the area we desired were full. This worked out better. Hunter's place (we rented 5North - the 2BR and the penthouse) was better than a hotel. Spacious, beautiful condo that had more than enough room for my family of 5. The views were gorgeous and the outdoor space (two large balconies and a 3rd higher sunset viewing balcony) was fantastic.
The concierges Lenin and Eilyn were incredibly kind and extremely helpful in booking activities for us like ATV tour, Whitewater rafting, private tent at the beach, surf lessons, massage on the balcony, zip lining, transportation to/from the airport and recommending restaurants. They made our first trip to Costa Rica simple and stress free. The daily maid service was great.
Two supermarkets are in walking distance. We decided to not rent a car which worked out well for us but you could go either way. This was an ideal Costa Rica experience if you're visiting the Manuel Antonio area. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Wish we could have stayed longer.
Simply the best! We rented top floor with three bedrooms for six days. Pricey but with six people in the unit it was a bargain for what you get. There is a gated parking lot with a night guard. The view over the ocean is unsurpassed. Sunsets are spectacular. Try for a unit on the third thru fifth floor where views are best. We have stayed in other Quepos places but none compare.
The staff here is also excellent. Two very nice ladies to greet you and to make sure your accommodations are appropriate.
If you go to Manuel Antonio be sure to let them book the guide. They have the best available and the difference between a good guide from them and one booked at the entrance is profound.
We recently stayed at PC and loved it. The views were amazing and we loved sitting out on the balcony. We were able to see macaws, toucan, a sloth, and many other birds during our time there right from our unit! We stayed on the 4th floor and think we may have had one of be best views in the area, besides the view from the 5th floor units of course! Stephanie the concierge was fabulous and full of so many great recommendations. The condo had secured parking which was awesome for our rental car. There was also 24 hour security who is very observant. They would have the gate open the moment we approached the condo and were always very kind. The unit was within walking distance from everything you could need food and store wise. The walk to a plethora of restaurants was so short and we loved being able to walk to lunch/dinner/the store and not need a car. I highly recommend these condos if you are visiting MA and hope we make it back really soon! Thanks for the awesome accommodations PC!
My husband and I stayed at Pacifico Colonial (PC) and loved it. Our view was breath taking! The views are amazing and we loved sitting out on the balcony. We saw macaws, toucan and an iguana in the tree right from our unit during our stay. Stephanie and Melissa, the hosts, were simply fantastic. They’re personable and just all-knowing on activities and recommendations. They’re responsive and great at following up with you right away, if you need anything. The property has secure parking, but you really don’t need a car. There’s even a bus stop right in front of the property, which my husband and I took a few times. We felt just like a local. There is also 24 hour security, which is great because we arrived late. They had the gate open the moment we got there and the guards are always delightful and welcoming. You’re within walking distance from everything you could need (e.g., restaurants, pharmacy, market/store). We loved walking to breakfast/dinner/the store. I highly recommend PC if you are visiting Manual Antonio. My husband and I will be going back! Stephanie, thank you for the awesome accommodations and wonderful hospitality.
We stayed here in 2010 and it was AMAZING ! The deck is huge and we could see 2 kinds of monkeys going by every morning....as well as pelicans, stick bugs... and lots more. The place is beautiful as well ... and if you get a chance hire the chef ! He took us to the market and we tried lots of things we never would have on our own. We travel a lot and this is always in my top 3 of places I recommend. This is also a great place for kids. You will not be disappointed !
