First time my husband heard of an adult bar, but the absence of children was a pleasant surprise.
The staff was GREAT! A big hello and thanks for all your help to Andres, Steven, Charlie and Charlie, and of course Rodrigo in the restaurant. You all made our trip memorable with your help in scheduling our tours and your friendly and welcoming attitudes. Gracias a todos!

We turned up without a reservation because it looked good from the outside and it was in my LPG. Friendly staff, beautiful exteriors and interiors, good breakfast by the pool, and where else can you watch monkeys and toucans from your swimming pool?

The facilities are very nice and well kept, surrounded by vegetation and quietness. The staff is very kind and solicitous (in particular Andrés with his advice and Rodrigo with his attentive assistance and excellent breakfast!!!).
The room terrace is surrounded by palms, flowers and other beautiful vegetation. The location is perfect for an early tour to Manuel Antonio National Park, which is the best thing you could do to be able to see many animals before the crowd arrives.
We recommend to go to "Claro que sí" restaurant to have a nice evening dinner with lovely views...(the only drawback is that you will need a car to go to Manuel Antonio restaurant/pub area, as it´s km over the hill at no walking distance)

Room Tip: lower floor rooms at the back of the building were very quiet(own a/c machine was heard only when toilet-door was open)

Very nice and comfortable place for relaxing. It is very close to the hotel, so you can go walking. There are so many restaurants just around the corner. The only thing it has a very small swimming pool. At the reception, you can choose activities such as Titi Canopy Tour. Amazing!!

Just show up and you will enjoy every minute of your stay. The staff will blow you away in regards to how they treat you. I love the serenity of the place as well as the swimming pool. Don't miss the opportunity to stay at this location.
