This was one of the most beautiful places I've ever stayed, and the service is absolutely impeccable. It's close to all the restaurants and Manuel Antonio Park. There is a private beach with towel and good service. Everything you could want in a vacation rental can be found on the property. I can't recommend Casa de Frutas enough.
