“Wonderful property, great location!”
Reviewed 7 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We loved Villa Mot Mot! The property is beautiful & location is very convenient to Quepos, Manuel Antonio & other area attractions. The 2 separate living areas were great & the kitchen size was nice. A/C works great in all bedrooms & even cooled the main areas of the house. The only negative is the temperature of the pool- quite cold because it is always shaded by the surrounding trees, and the spa/"hot tub" is not heated so really is useless.
Dorit & Elias were fantastic & made sure we had everything we needed during our stay! We will definitely stay at this property again!

Hola Sheryl,

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay at our Mot Mot Villa!! We are pleased to read that you enjoyed your time here and we are already looking forward to seeing you again!!!

The water temperature not being so hot can actually be a very good thing when visiting during the extremely hot months between Dec and May; The smaller, round part of the pool is really only meant to be a "sitting area" or more shallow part for children for example, not a jacuzzi or hot tub. There are not jets installed, it really just looks like a jacuzzi.

Thanks again, and please do visit us again soon for some more PURA VIDA!

“Villa Mot Mot is home away from home!”
Reviewed 26 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

All of us were nervous coming in to the estates in the evening as it was dark and dim throughout, but the care and time Elias took to make sure our group was comfortable and our accommodations to be 100% satisfactory really made the difference. As we were coming into the estates on a Sunday evening, establishments were closing early, we were quickly recommended with many options, but the most important part was making sure that our accommodations were up to par and there was nothing that we needed for the evening.

As we pulled up to the property, sharp turn into a narrow dip to find an incredibly charming villa at the bottom of this dark hill called Mot Mot. Walking into the villa, it immediately felt like we were to just walk into our own home. Everything was fitting and complete for our jungle rainforest adventure. Perusing through the house, we find everything needed for our short stay in the Quepos town that is extremely close to Manuel Antonio. The town has EVERYTHING that you need, from food to supplies, to ordinary needs, just a hop and skip away. The home has a small pool that we enjoyed while grilling, a hammock in the balcony that all took some time to hang out in, sat in the balcony and enjoyed a beer or drink, stepped outside to listen to nature or take a breath of fresh air...It is all here...

We all know that when choosing a room, this is probably the problem that everyone encounters, everyone has a different need. But you have to make sure you travel with a group that is able to adjust fairly and adapt to what you have at hand. Because you will not find a place to stay that will give you all equally sized rooms... We sure did not have a problem with that, but keep in mind that are rooms in a home are not created equally. Travel with an open-minded group.

Thank you Manuel Antonio Estates staff, you really made it a memorable experience that will keep bringing us back.

“Sensational experience!”
Reviewed 11 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We loved Villa Mot Mot. It was located in the heart of the rainforest and we saw wild animals and exotic birds every day. The service was impeccable, the kitchen was fully stocked, and we had more space than we could ever use. It was an incredible experience!

My husband and I were married on a beach near Manuel Antonio in 2008. We always said when we returned we would rent a house. Villa Mot Mot exceeded our expectations. We traveled with a large group of family, friends and our 5 year old. There was plenty of space for the 10 of us. An extra mattress was needed and the staff did not hesitate to accommodate. Dorit made our experience incredible. Every question we had she answered, every reservation we needed to book she handled...very friendly. Everything was very clean and the staff was very friendly. I can't wait to go back!
