We had a wonderful stay. Our favorite part was how private and slightly remote it was, a true get away. The beachfront villas were absolutely beachfront...just steps away. The overall property was so well kept and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. I have recommended to friends and family already. Can't wait to go back, very relaxing.

Hola Orlando! Too bad you did not get the chance to stay at our hotel for more than one night. Having breakfast right along the beach is one of the best parts of our hotel! Sometimes the iguana's will visit during breakfast and beg for some fruit which is definitely entertaining :) Please come back and see us again soon!

Very friendly staff with awesome recommendations on restaurants and Manuel Antonio tours. Very clean and private. Recommend having a car so you can explore the surrounding towns and area. Beach was pretty to look at but not too conducive for swimming due to tides.
