My husband and I took our family, that consists of two adult sons and their wives and each family has two sons! The children range in age from 13 to 5 years of age therefore, we needed various activities to satisfy adults, children and of course grandma and grandpa. The concierge Susan Ranger, was incredible in planning our daily activities and arranging for meals, transportation and menus for selection of the gourmet meals. Our chef Michael, his expertise in cooking and his presentations of the five star meals defy description. It was a vacation to celebrate a birthday and 50th anniversary. The activities planned from zip lining to kayaking were first rate. Susan was considerate and creative in her acknowledgment of these special occasions. She handled every situation above and beyond the call of duty. The beauty of the house and the help within the house, the area's beaches,the natural resources all added to our never-to-be forgotten vacation! The transportation drivers were always friendly, courteous and helpful in every way. We give this vacation, the home and the people who work there, our highest recommendation.
From the beginning to the end, it was a pleasure working with this group. I am more than impressed and would recommend them to anyone. They are professional, nice and were incredibly easy to work with.
We just returned from a wonderful trip staying 10 nights at Villa Paraiso with a group of friends. I don't believe the pictures of the Villa do it justice. It's almost like a mini hotel because each bedroom is separated from the main living area with a lot of pricacy. The views from the house and bedrooms are absolutely remarkable. The service from Donielle and Susan were wonderful as well. Susan was our concierge and took care of every detail of our trip including the drivers back-and-forth from the airport as well as drivers to dinners, booking excursions etc. we chose to have the chef for half of our dinners and we were very pleased! We all agreed our meals at home were always as good and in most cases better than at the restaurants. Price wise we feel like we came out about the same. It was so nice not having to get ready, get a ride and go to a restaurant and just to be able to stay right there in the beautiful home to eat. The maids were so sweet and attentive as well. The location of the house was great only five minutes into town. We were told by some drivers, tour guides and various people we met that this was one of the most beautiful houses in Manuel Antonio and I'm not a bit surprised. Susan recommended a river raft ride, waterfall tour etc. everything she recommended was wonderful. We also went deep-sea fishing and caught a Sail fish and a Mahi Mahi that our chef cooked up for dinner. We took a ride one day in to Jaco (about an hour away) and our guys went golfing at Los Sueños. It had a marina and was a beautiful property. The guys it was a beautiful course and we thoroughly enjoyed seeing that area as well. We all very much enjoyed our trip and can't wait to go back and visit again. Thanks to Donielle, Susan and all the staff for your kindness and attention to detail. What a beautiful home!!!!
If looking for a posh vacation home while in Manuel Antonio look no further. This place rocks. Awesome staff. Beautiful property inside & out. Day trips from this venue are ideal. Don't hesitate.
Villa paraiso is a awesome home in a beautiful gated community. The location in town is perfect. 5-10 minute ride to all the great restaurants and attractions. Donielle and her team are wonderful to deal with and know the area really well.
