This hotel was the highlight of our trip. They made us feel welcome and helped us book excursions. My son wanted to see wildlife and we saw more monkeys at the hotel than anywhere else. Not fancy but perfect for us.

We were not expecting this wonderful stay. At a hotel. Sitting on the front porch there have been imonkeys above in The trees. It has been a truly jungle atmosphere. Everything is quite organized and the hosts are very friendly as are the kitchen and cleaning staff. I love the laminated card provided to you at the beginning so that...

Charming, small hotel with the jungle at your back door and the beach at your front door. Not only was the setting perfect, the staff was absolutely wonderful both friendly and helpful. Be sure to enjoy "Jackie's" tacos and pina coladas poolside. I hurt my foot and the staff brought me icepacks and helped me hobble around - over the...

We checked in and could not stay here. The sheets and towels were actually dirty. When I pulled back the sheets, there were small bugs in the bed. Everything was dirty and dingy. The staff were indifferent and rude to the point of cruelty. My son has allergies to dust and dirt and started to have difficulty breathing. Again the...

It is rare that I even spend my time or effort to respond to these kinds of comments but when someone disrespects and verbaly abuses my staff just because their having a bad day it deserves a bit of attention. This response is for those honest travellers looking to enjoy a great time here in Costa Rica respecting the nature...

My wife and I enjoyed staying at this hotel - clean comfortable rooms and a nice pool. Also, the owner is very friendly and helpful. Delicious buffet breakfast also, and lots of jungle noises in the evening. The entrance to M.A. park is very close by, and there are also lots of restaurants and markets nearby, and a short trail...

We stayed here for 2 nights while exploring Manuell Antonio. We had a rental car, and had no problems with parking there. There are many restaurants within a 5 minute drive. We walked to Manuel Antonio Park in less then 10 minutes. There is a nice public beach almost across the street . The hotel is a good value. Our...

The owner, Chris Norris, is the definition of customer service. He helped us with a rental car issue and helped us secure a fishing trip. I can't say enough about how well we were treated. He and his staff are excellent.

Don't expect anything fancy at the Jungle Beach hotel. The location is close to the beach along a very busy road, and the hotel staff is great. The rooms are very outdated and in need of some serious updating. The pillows and towels were just awful and the bedding was very old. However, if you don't plan on spending much...

Hotel staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good and it was served next to the pool which was nice. Bed was comfortable. Room safe provided. Pool was very clean. Walk to beach was close. Town is not far away. Room was very clean. Frsh towels next day. Nice shower with plenty of water. I would stay there again.

Hotel is basic, rooms were clean but service was lacking. This is a agod budget hotel in close proximity to beach but if your looking for anything close to 3star or better go elsewhere. Best part of it is the abundent wildlife in the treetops. Worse part roosters and traffic.
