I arrived in Manuel Antonio a few days ago without having a reservation, however I knew I just wanted a clean room which was close to the beach. I checked out a few places, and then found this hotel. The woman at the front desk couldn't have been more helpful with information about both the hotel and the attractions nearby.... More

A great hotel very close to the entrance of Manuel Antonio Park and only a short block away from the public beach. The rooms are comfortably furnished and although the hotel faces a busy street, it is very quiet at night. Early in the morning and around 5:00 or so you can see monkeys running across the roofs to get... More

This was by far one of the nicer hotels that we stayed at in Costa Rica. The location was absolutely perfect: a two-minute walk from the Pacific Ocean beach front, and a three minute walk from Manuel Antonio National Park. As soon as we arrived here, we wished we had spent more time here. The hotel staff was very friendly,... More

Hotel is conveniently located almost right at the park entrace and the beach, so location is definitely good. Room is tiny and bed had such a sturdy spring mattress that I almost didn't sleep at all, probably one of the worst bed I ever encountered (mattress is personal preference though). Breakfast was self service one day, and pick/served the other...no... More

Had the peppercorn steak and bacon, peach and BBQ chick. Fantastic sauces! This was a great off the path restaurant with a fantastic staff. They have a great bar selection also. Must check this place out when you are in town.

Came here as part of a tour group. The building is a bit on the older side but still in good condition. Rooms vary slightly, but are nice and clean. Staff are friendly and accommodating. New landscaping as well!

Spent 5 nights here and was our second time. Location is great. Just 5 minutes to either the park or the beach. Far enough away from the beach to be quiet. Room is very comfortable.

We can't say enough good things about this gem of a hotel nestled away into the edge of the jungle and just a five-minute walk from everything -- the Manuel Antonio National Park, Playa Espadilla, dozens of restaurants, the public bus line, and a supermarket with practically anything you could possibly need. Everyone in the hotel staff is remarkably friendly,... More
