I was initially disappointed not to have a room with an ocean view - had they told me I had a room with a monkey view, I would have been ecstatically overjoyed. We found out as soon as we got to our room, that outside our first floor room was a tree area that is right next to the national...

We stayed at San Bada on our last few nights in Costa Rica. What a beautiful place! We were greeted by Franciso at Reception who was most helpful everyday of our stay. He was very warm and friendly. The room was beautiful with lovely linens and a very comfortable bed! Loved the 6th floor pool that had a bar and...

This hotel was very good with an excellent restaurant. The rooms were air conditioned. The restaurant was not but it had a good breeze. The hotel made an effort to have lots of plants on their site. There is a large swimming pool outside and another on the 6th floor. The bar on the 6th floor had really great sushi...

We stayed in room 209 while on a Caravan tour. The room was ok, nothing special, and nothing bad. It was clean and the beds were comfortable. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, and the pool and pool area are beautiful and spacious. It has very nice roof bar and pool, with a covered deck for watching the ocean and beautiful...

The hotel was very nice and clean. Our room view was spectacular and exceeded our expectations. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, especially our pool side bartender Gerardo Baltodano who makes the best mojitos. He was very informative and knowledgeable regarding the area, places to visit and sights to see. Ask for him if you stay there he is...

Hotel-staff were excellent. Emelio was the best, but all staff were great. Location was great. Property needs more upkeep. I would rate it a weak 4 just because basic upkeep is slow to happen. We did see them addressing some of those needs so I give it the benefit of the doubt. I like the level hotel as most hotels...

We stayed at the Hotel San Bada for one night as part of a Caravan tour. Rooftop terrace was a great setting for a magnificent sunset. Food was decent and hotel was very convenient for visiting Manuel Antonio National Park.

We arrived at the hotel at about 1:30 pm. We are on a Caravan tour and our tour director already had our room assignments. We opted to visit the park right away as it closes at 4:00. We got back to the hotel at 3:45 and our rooms were not ready. Not just ours but most of the group. We...
