This was a great little hotel within walking distance to the beach (5 min) and town (10 min) for groceries and restaurants. We got the room that came with a king bed, bunk beds and a kitchenette. For three people staying in the same room we had plenty of space. The air conditioning was cold and worked well. The hotel...

Such a great place! My wife and our 1 and a half year old daughter, River (or Rio!) stayed in the suite for a week in early May. Everyone was so friendly to us and to River which really made our stay enjoyable. We spent each night going to sleep to the sound of pouring rain and woke each morning...

The rooms were by no means luxurious, but comfortable. Loved the sound of the howlers at night and the squirrel monkeys playing in the...

Spent four day at this lovely hotel. Staff was accommodating of our late arrival and kept the hotel's restaurant open so we could have dinner. We ran into weather trouble that cancelled one of our planned outings. My one suggestion is in room coffee makers for early risers.

We spent 6 nights here in April. Good location with an easy walk to the beach, the little town of Manuel Antonio, and the National Park. Our room (#9) was ok with air con and wifi and mini fridge, but the door didn't quite close, no doorknobs so we had to claw at the lock to get out of the...

The hotel is great for where it's situated in Manual Antonio. Walking distance to manual antonio park and just across the street from the public beach. For the sake of having somewhere to sleep, it's comfortable enough. The service was great, and we had no problems. We ran into some car troubles and the staff were quick to assist which...

It's true: the beach, amazing by the way, is right around the corner, Manuel Antonio natural reserve is a 10min walk and monkeys do try to have breakfast with you. Location couldn't be better but...the hotel is right on a really busy road, rooms are a little bit old...I found it expensive for what you get...but as I wrote before:...
