Probably the worst vacation experience of my life. My hands are shaking as i'm writing this. My watch and cash were stolen today from my locked room and the owner/administer of the hotel accused me of lying or misplacing my belongings. This after being told upon arriving late last night, that because of a "computer problem" my bungalow costs $25...

perfect location, poor maintenance, live threatening electrics in bathrooms As all the others wrote already, this Hotel would be paradise if reasonably maintained. Rooms, bath, AC (silent) and furniture have been in ok shape and pretty clean (room 24). Beach and garden are just wonderful. There is even a shower close to the beach. The hot water installation is a...

My partner and I are doing a big roadtrip in Costa Rica and are staying in different hotels. We arrived earlier than expected in Manuel Antonio and the place where we are supposed to stay is already fully booked so we decided to chill in the beach and look for a place near there. We found this place, it's a...

If you are looking for the experience of old Costa Rica, sweet people,easy environment, fabulous natural resources, you must stay at Eco Hotel Arboleda. It is not like any of the sophisticated places easily found. This place is a hidden treasure and will provide a vacation you won't have anywhere else.

Since my arrival I had problems here, I booked with booking.com and when I showed this screen shot of my reservation from my phone to the receptionist, she told me that they no longer work with booking.com. Since I'm a female in my 20's I was scared to venture off to find any other hotel at this time, as I...

This is the perfect spot to go, leave the car in a safety parking lot, and spend the day in the beach, that is walking distance, literally about 50 steps away. They give you chairs to take to the beach and also you can order from the restaurant and they take the food to you at the beach! We love...

If you are looking for service or a beautiful room- not the place for you. But if you care more about location and natural beauty, then this place is perfect. The rooms are very basic, but clean. But if you want to be right on the ocean - which is a rarity in Manuel Antonio - then this is the...

This place has been beset with problems since I've been going to Quepos/Manuel Antonio, 19 years. It really is 2 places--a "hotel" and then cabins very close to the beach. I stayed in one of the cabins for 1 night. I love this place for the restaurant and their beach bar--both right on the beach. So when you're walking the...

The ONLY thing this place has to offer is its location. This would be great if you were camping on the beach. The rooms are beyond creepy. If you are a person that is very low maintenance and dont mind staying in a shed wo basic things like a safe shower, than this place would do, but why would you...
