Scratch...scratch...scratch. It was 8 a.m. and I was suddenly awake. What the...??? Something was on the roof of my bedroom, and I aimed to find out what it was. Turns out...there were 2 giant iguanas doing their version of Fight Club. When they saw the look of disdain on my face, they quickly became friends, and headed for higher …
Day 1 Friday February 11, 2011
The day began at 2:00 a.m. with last minute packing, coffee, a shower, taking the trash out...yes all of the things we do before leaving. Jeff showed up in the driveway at 3:30, and soon we were headed to Metro airport. The thermometer was showing 2 degrees, and the parking lot at the airport had been plowed …
Is one of the best hotels that i have been to, since being in Central America. The hotel is perfectly situated between Quepos and Manuel Antonio. Only 15 minute drive to the Manuel Antonio park. It was perfect for my 7 year old son Ros. We got to see lots of Monkeys and even spotted a sloth. There is …
This week was more Spanish lessons from Marinet. She continues to be patient while we slowly learn her language. She tries not to cringe every time we mispronounce a word, which is often. Ted has trouble with his 'j's. We finished our lessons for this week on Thursday and will take a break for a week and supposedly practice what we've learned. …

Just returned from a 10 day stay in the Quepos Manuel Antonio area . Don't recomend the drive . Had I known I would have Rented the car in Quepos rather than do the drive from SJ myself . Not fun . The roads are in serious need of repair.
I stayed here for a couple of days after reading reviews here on trip advisor and was really glad I did. The hosts/owners were Gary, Catalina, their 3 sons and a large Rottweiler pet/mascot/guardian named Sara. Their 10 yr old son Dallas was a well spoken, informative little charmer. It was a nice home-style stay as opposed to the typical hotel feel, which is fine from time to time. Since i was on a budget, I stayed in one of their economical condos, a small studio apt with a full working kitchen, private bath, tv, and fans. Nights weren't really that hot so the fans were fine.
What a great place! After already enjoying a full week in Costa Rica we were excited to settle down at this secluded condo style accomodation with 7 of our friends. Las Cascadas is only a walk outside of Quepos and this accomodation provided all of the nice touches you would expect from a home; and the owners even went above and beyond to make our stay special. A day at the pool while listening to music and watching the many monkeys play around the yard was very amusing. The owners Gary and Catalina and their children were a lot of fun to be around. They demonstrated care for their guests by checking how our stay was, providing us with advice on where to party, what tours to go on, nice places to have food and secret spots to go to. We even had a huge poolside dinner with them and other guests at Las Cascadas on New Year's Eve. Overall, Las Cascadas provided us with all of the amenities stated and needed not to mention versatility (ability to party at the pool while listening to our own music or a nice tranquil family atmosphere - whatever your taste they were able to provide it.) The units were spacious, decorated tastefully, very clean, had AC (the upstairs was a little warm because the air conditioner had difficulty making it cool, but it had a fan and we kept the window open for a nice breeze) and there was an excellent laundry service, TV (which you don't need because you shouldn't be spending time indoors), ... and the list goes on. The pool and grounds area were maintained well, and Gary provided us with opportunities to use his recreational equipment. And finally, what made our stay the very best in Costa Rica was Gary, Catalina and their boys who were truly amazing hosts, we are very happy to have found this little paradise. We will definitely be going back to visit them soon!
My two college age daughters and I just returned from a fabulous vacation in Quepos, Costa Rica. We had never been before and Las Cascadas came highly recommend by a friend of a friend. We had wanted to stay in a condo with a kitchen and living room rather than have a hotel experience. Las Cascadas was a perfect choice. This is a family run business and is located high on a hill overlooking the ocean. The pool is delightful with a cascading waterfall and your ears are filled with sounds of the surf and native wildlife. The condo we stayed in was a two bedroom, two bathroom unit with an open kitchen/living room area. Upstairs was a roof top terrace that the breeze came through and was a wonderful place to relax!
Great place to stay!
My family stayed at Las Cascadas for a week in April 2005 and had a wonderful time. The accommodations were just what we expected, and the owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Everything was exactly as we discussed before arriving, and their description of the unit was completely accurate. The location is great - very conveniently located to Quepos, but also quite private. Spending the afternoon at the pool while monkeys played around the grounds was wonderful. The owners gave us advice on a couple tours that were real winners. We'd definitely go back!
Thanks for a great vacation!
Stayed here with a group of friends. I was overwhelmed with the beauty of the main house and guest condos when we arrived! The grounds were all built and designed by Gary, the owner, and it is spectacular. Waterfalls, views, spacious, great pool, the location is beyond convenient! What really made the trip go from great to awesome was the family that runs it. You cant put a price on people and they were so nice and accomodating! Their son was so helpful in telling us where to go and what to do and setting up trips and tours. The pool was wonderful too. Great times had by all!
In response to a few poor reviews...if you are expecting the Ritz, go stay at the Ritz.
Very quaint & friendly accomodations
We stayed at Las Cascadas last November and loved the place. The family that owns the place was very friendly and helpful, particularly their son Dallas. We wanted to go Scuba diving and he spent a couple hours on the internet and phone trying to set up a trip for us. The rooms were clean and decorated nicely. There was a nice deck that had a great view of the ocean. The pool was great also. We would definitely go back to the place!
Very nice week
During one week we spend a great time in Las Cascadas Hotel. The rooms were decorated with such a personal touch, that made us feel comfortable right away. The family that runs this place is very friendly. I really can recommend this nice place to have a relaxed vacation.

I stayed at Las Cascadas with a group of friends and we were unpleasantly surprised when we arrived that the owner had told us that both rooms would have AC and only one did, since we were used to small rooms we stayed in the one room instead of using the misrepresented room. Also, the website we had looked at stated that all condos have ocean views, this is not true, we had one window that looked at the patio and one in the bathroom that was under the deck(not anything resembling an ocean view). Also, the website made it seem that there were washers and dryers for guests to use, however it is actually a laundry service that is rather pricey ($8 for a plastic target/plastic grocery store sized bag of clothes), also the website made it seem that there was a wide aray of gear that guests could use, such as snorkling gear, sail boat etc. However, it is for rent and not all rooms (ours included) has a price sheet telling you this, so you could have a surprise on your bill. Just a warning that you should ask a lot of questions and hold on to emails for documentation. On the up side Manuel Antonio is the best and you will not spend much time in any room you stay at.
