We just spent a week at Casa Fantastica with 19 members of our family. It was absolutely wonderful.
We rented Casa Fantastica for our wedding and could not have been happier! With 35 attending.
Best vacation ever
By far the best vacation ever. I wanted to put Choko in my suitcase and take him home with me.
Wonderful dream vacation
The house exceeded all expectations. The housekeeping staff was wonderful.
We just stayed here with a group of 25 - ages 8 to 50. We loved every minute of our stay.
We had a spectacular stay at Casa Fantastica. The property is stunning with breathtaking views of the ocean and the surrounding jungle.
Fantastica Costa Rica Vacation
This was one of my favorite vacations.
Fantastic is the place to stay
This was my fourth time at Fantastica
Emry Family Vacation
Stunned upon arrival! There was 21 of us and this house was a perfect fit.
Let's break down the best vacation
Let's just say I felt like Beyonce (or Pablo Escobar). Amazing rooms, breathtaking views, and an overall immersive nature experience.
Unbelievably amazing experience staying at this small resort. Everything you need is here.
Stunning Manuel Antonio Ocean View Estate
Villa fantastica was awesome, in the middle of pure lush forests and wild beauty
We rented this beautiful retreat in the heart of the forest. We woke up to the most AMAZING view ever! Our host Ricky was absolutely fantastic. He made sure all of our needs was taken care of and he was always available on call.
Wedding group - Unforgettable
From the moment I saw the house I knew that our group would have an experience they would remember for ever. The house is perfect in every way. Each room is beautiful and unique making every guest love the room they got.
Friends booked this house for a very special occasion. We were very skeptical because it could not possibly live up to the on-line photographs. It turned out the photographs do not begin to do the house justice.
Above our expectations!
We spent a week at Casa Fantastica and loved it! I think the actual house was even better than the photos. It is set up so well for a large group- that we did not feel crowded at all with 17 people...
This house is amazing and like none other I've visited. Though, the best thing about this house was the chef. Hairo and his assistant were simply amazing.
Pura Vida Casa Fantastica!
Casa Fantastica is a place that gives lasting memories right from the moment you walk in the door and see the wow-factor infinity pool overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
Casa Fantastica is drop dead gorgeous
We were a group of 11 friends that planned a weeks vacation in Costa Rica. The highlight of our trip was our stay at Casa Fantastica. The Villa and the views were drop dead gorgeous. The pool deck area is where we spent the majority of our time.
Perfect Week in Perfect Costa Rican Villa
We just finished a week with a party of 20 at Casa Fantastica. The villa was as advertised and the services provided were excellent. Our hosts Ricky and Jeff were always available answered every need and question.
Costa Rica Couple Adventure
This home and all its services are incredible. Hiro(Choco) and Jose are top notch and make five star meals. The house keepers are perfection and the home itself is a dream.
Hello. I was part of the group from NY, GA, and CA that just ended their stay at Casa Fantástica. Amazing accommodations; the rooms were comfortable and the service was terrific.
This place was beyond amazing I almost have no words to describe it. We were a party of 11 and every inch of this house was perfection. It was my 5th time in MA and it was by far the best time because of Casa Fantastica.
Vacation Spot of a lifetime
A bunch of us stayed at Casa Fantastica for two of our friends' wedding in late March/early April. This truly was a dream vacation villa. You can't beat the scenery and the villa is heavenly.
Great House, Great Staff, Prepare to be Spoiled !!!
Our second stay at Casa Fantastica.
Even better this year than last. Stephan, the chef was outstanding.
