I recently returned to Costa Rica and stayed in a 'gay-friendly' hotel on the Caribbean Coast. I won't dwell on it here but I feel I made a huge mistake. It was neither gay nor especially friendly. I really regret not coming back to Manuel Antonio and staying at the Villa Roca as I did last July. I came in...

This hotel principally for gay travelers is very nice. The accomodations are basic but quite nice. Great views of the Pacific in many rooms and a very welcoming pool for lounging. Breakfast is provided - it is very nice. An evening bar was available. Lots of restaurants and bars easily walkable or a short taxi ride. The staff is exceptionally...

The hotel was very clean, well run, and a beautiful pool. It is walking distance to numerous restaurants, and centrally located. The breakfast was also very good - not just a bagel and coffee by any means.

Villa Roca is high quality gay hotel in Manuel Antonio. We stayed for five days in room 6. The room in itself was pretty basic but the views of the ocean and rainforest were staggering. Sitting on the terrace was great in all hours of the day - as well as night. Villa Roca is within a fairly long walking...

We arrived just after Christmas to celebrate our Honeymoon and the New Year. We stayed for 8 nights and had an amazing time. OUR ROOM: We stayed in #9.

Hotel Villa Roca has really great views accompanied with great service. Everyone was really friendly and willing to go above and beyond to make our stay pleasant, though we may have annoyed one of the staff members with our questions. The only issue we encountered was when my partner and I went for breakfast and no seats were available, though...

My partner and I stayed for 4 nights at the tail end of the low season for our anniversary. Our room, #3, was perfectly situated for a fantastic view of the ocean and the entertaining antics of the capuchin monkeys in the morning.
