This is a 5-star experience at an extremely valuable price. The villas of Espadilla Ocean Club offer an excellent blend of hard to find attributes in accommodations within the Manuel Antonio area. As a tour operator throughout Costa Rica, it is very comforting to send my clients to EOC because I know that they will be taken care of and catered to every single time. The location of these villas is spectacular! The beach is a short & flat, 150 yard walk out the back door to an area of Playa Espadilla that is quiet and great for learning to surf. The villas themselves are modern, spacious and offer guests an incredible jungle and tree-house feel, where monkeys & toucans visit on a daily basis. There are plenty of culinary experiences to be had within a walk or short drive, but these fully-equipped villas offer guests the option to cook their own meals with ease, too. With the private plunge pool and spacious deck at each villa, guest have everything they need at their fingertips. The villa hosts are attentive, cooperative and always find a way to offer advice and assistance as needed. Staying here, guests are able to have an independent travel experience while still having plenty of resort-type amenities close by. This is one of the best-kept secrets in all of Manuel Antonio and we highly recommend them.
