We loved the accommodations at Geminis del Pacifico. The home, the view, all it had to offer was wonderful. We will recommend to others that may decide to go to Costa Rica and do plan on returning. Our schedule is very hectic so it may not be for a year or two. We had a guide for the week so did not call on the House Manager very often other than to see how to dial home. He was very helpful. Thanks and we will contact you upon our return Manuel Antonio. Thanks.
