Friendly staff and attentive. Had a small issue with room at check in but they went above and beyond to fix it and make sure we are 200+% happy. Hotel is just steps from Manuel Antonio Park and the beach which is a plus.

We used the pool towels supplied by the hotel at the beach. The surroundings are safe however most stores are closed by 6pm and only restaurants are open within walking distance after this.

Checking their website for this info is a great idea! My traveling companion thinks there is a dryer in each room, but doesn't really remember.
