“Our Week in Paradise”
Eoc is absolutely gorgeous. The facilities are brand new, beautifully designed villas. Basically every surface in the villas is tile or stone (of course, there are mattresses and plenty of cushions to sleep and sit on). This makes a lot of sense because there will be sand everywhere when you come in from the beach. You can literally see the beach from the master bedroom window. This, by itself, is amazing. Imagine being able to go to the beach without having to worry about leaving your stuff under an umbrella while you go swimming. Worrying about my stuff is the one thing I always hated about the beach. But having it so close to the villa means you can bring your towel and keys, and nothing else. If you need something else, it's a 5 minute walk back. The villas are fairly close together, but I never felt like my privacy was invaded and I never heard noise from other guests. There was some light construction going on during my stay, but the hosts (Bobby and Shelley) were extraordinarily accommodating about that. They assured us that they would try to have the construction done while we were away, and they always called to ask our permission before there was any noisy construction going on. I barely noticed it. One of the best parts of our stay at EOC was how helpful the hosts were. Shelley was always available to answer questions and give us recommendations. She obviously cares very much about making sure the guests have a great time. She made some great recommendations for activities (catamaran boat, buggy ride up the mountains to a waterfall, and national park tour) and made arrangements for all of it. The small staff at EOC does a fantastic job keeping the facilities in great shape. If you are like me, you will be amazed how quickly you make a mess of the place. But then I was amazed how thoroughly the staff cleaned up the villa while we were out. Eoc was the perfect place for our winter getaway. I'm already trying to figure out when I can get back there!
“Experienced Costa Traveler”
I have visited Costa Rica so many times that I have lost count. I have traveled from Panama up to Nicaragua, staying in every type hotel from small private beach cabinas to large all-inclusive resorts. As I get older, I have been looking for a area and resort to call my Costa home. I finally found it in the EOC. Manual antonio pretty much has it all. Great restaurants, beautiful beach, awesome National Park, uncrowded surfing and all the tours you could possibly want. The resort is fantastic. The villas are super comfortable and beautify designed. Also, it is right on the beach. Every other house we have rented in Manual antonio has been up on the hill and we have had to take the car to the beach, where parking can be a bit of an issue. The surfing in Manual antonio is not as epic as a lot of the Pacific Costa Rican towns, however the lack of crowds and tidal consistency easily makes up for the smaller swell. It is also a great place to learn to surf and you always have the option to travel a few minutes down the road to Dominical where the surf is epic. Lastly, I have to comment on the family that runs the EOC. Bobby and Shelly are wonderful. I would go back just to hang out with them. No matter whether you are looking for solitude or good friends they will have you dialed in from the moment you get there. I will be back and plan to make a trip with my wife towards the end of the summer.
“Fabulous vliias in Manuel antonio”
The Espadilla Ocean Club is a fantastic little compound of villas nestled in one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. Its right on the beach and the owners - Bobby and Shelley - live on the property and are available to help with anything you may need. We spent a few days just relaxing on the beach, a day in the national park, and we were right in the heart of costa rica to do the other things we wanted to do (ATV tours, canopy tours, catamaran cruises, etc). We went with our children (6 and 4) and this is a perfect family spot. We have already begun planning our next trip to stay at the Espadilla Ocean Club.
Response from the owner Thanks for your nice review, Jim......our girls loved playing with your boys.......see you next time......
“Our wonderful visit to Espadilla Ocean Club in Manuel antonio, C”
I cannot say enough about the convenient location and physical condition of our villa. The very short distance to the beach was perfect. Once all Villas are complete, we hope to go back with another family or two. We were there with our two teenage kids (13 & 16) and they were able to come and go as they wished. The villa was very roomy but cosey enough to enjoy our family time. The kids loved it. The beach is beautiful. We enjoyed costa rican meals prepared for us. The Hosts planned many activities for us and were so helpful. We enjoyed the Ocean King catamaran trip, as well as zip-lining. Thank you Bobby & Shelley - we hope to be back soon.
Response from the owner thanks for the great review......we hope to see you guys again soon......
I just spent two weeks in Costa Rica at the Espadilla Ocean Club with my family (me, my husband and 2 kids, ages 6 and 4) and had a great experience. The villas are exceptional...modern, clean, comfortable and really beautiful. Downstairs is a full kitchen, sitting area and bathroom. Upstairs there are 2 comfortable bedrooms, one with a loft that could sleep an adult or 2 kids comfortably. The view from the upstairs king bedroom is exquisite...right down to the Pacific Ocean. If you look up into the trees, there is also a good chance you will see monkeys. From the kitchen downstairs, you look out over the convenient (and welcomed) splash pool, deck, and towards the ocean as well. The managers of the EOC live on site and are extremely helpful. They were always available for questions and their recommendations (for trips, restaurants, etc) were spot on. They booked all our adventures for us and gave us all the necessary information so we could be ready and have everything we needed for the trips. They are both completely fluent in English and Spanish and couldn't be nicer. The location of the EOC is spectacular. It sits right in the middle of a one mile stretch of beach. The south part of the beach borders the Manuel antonio reserve. The beach is about a one minute walk out your back villa door, making access to the beach and back to the villa very easy. With kids, it was helpful to be able to easily walk back to the villa for something forgotten or a quick break. Not only is the beach accessible, so is the rest of the town. It was a few minutes drive to any of the restaurants we went to or to the park. We plan to return to this area each summer and will stay with the EOC for sure. It is the perfect location, spectacular villas and superb service. Highly recommended.
Response from the owner great review.......I'll get the Spanish language classes lined up for next year......
“Beachfront Glamour, Nature and convenience at Manuel antonios Es”
Espadilla Ocean Club, Manuel antonio, Costa Rica is an expertly planned beach front property with four stout two story luxury villas on a park like property. An elegant and intimate custom home away from home with a built in swimming pool and coconut thatched outdoor areas charmed me with its various tropical cues. Unlike many typical luxury villas that have become standardized with off the shelf styling these villas flaunt a strong pedigree of experienced design in every detail. Top quality fixtures and appliances will satisfy even the pickiest traveler. Beautiful tile accents finished to the highest standard set in a tropical setting out of a fairy tale brings your stress to a screeching halt.. Monkeys filled the mango trees overhead with chatter, dropping leaves and twigs on us like a light rain shower, paradise. The beach was just far enough away to not feel the heat after a day of wandering. Fine places to eat are a short taxi or walk in either direction. You really will feel and relax like you're in a fashion and lifestyle magazine fantasy here! 5/5
