This was best value in our multiple trips to CR. Clean spacious cabins, pristine pool, ocean view, and friendly staff. Good food. A grocery store nearby - turtle reserve easy walk.. Fantastic gardens, monkeys, iguanas butterflies, and numerous birds

First point is that the location of Villas Gaia from the main hub of Manuel Antonio is over 70km (44 miles) away and is not easy to reach without a rental car. We didn't have one and realised fairly early that this would be impossible...More

Thank you Magda for your opinion on Villas Gaia. Unfortunately we can not agree on our location as being difficult to reach. We have several alternatives published on our web site how to get to Gaia and they are fairly easy. As we are located...More

I agree. You can walk to the beach. But the ocean is very rough. We did see a lot of scarlet macaws in the threes close to the beach. It's nice to go for a walk but not for a swim.
