“La Posada is the best place to stay in Manuel Antonio”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

A perfect location! We rented the Casa and it was extremely comfortable for our family of four. We had the perfect spot from our porch to see the capuchin and spider monkeys that visited us on our first day. Since La Posada is so close to the National Park, it is the best and most likely place to be visited by groups of monkeys. The maid service was excellent and extremely thorough. The staff was very friendly and helpful in making arrangements for tours and reservations for dinners and transportation. The food was very good, with breakfast included each day. If we go back to Costa Rica again, we will definitely stay at La Posada again.

With just a few rooms La Posada provides a more intimate experience than most hotels. The room, staff and grounds were definitely all above average.
Free phone to the states was a nice surprise!

This place is literally right next to Manuel Antonio Nat'l Park. Our room was cozy and very, very CLEAN!. Nice touches like microwave popcorn, and a little fridge were great; and my husband & I made liberal use of the ice-maker right across from our room. The pool is small, but, again - CLEAN! The wildlife was fabulous - the capuchin and squirrel monkeys put on quite the show nearly every day. Also, iguanas, birds, & a beautiful deer added to our experience. The staff are helpful and friendly, and there's a fun movie & dinner night 3 days a week (just be sure to use your bug spray at night, especially). We had booked 3 nights, but were lucky enough to add an extra night to our stay. The beach and plenty of restaurants are within walking distance and you can taxi to lots of other good choices. We live part of the year near Nuevo Arenal, Costa Rica, and will definitely be going back to visit La Posada!

Room Tip: Bungalows 1 - 4 each are located across from the pool, and each has a nice, shaded patio for reading...

We stayed here the beginning of February with our 8 yo boys. We loved the property and it's proximity to the beach. Breakfast in the mornings was delicious, and we also had dinner one night that Jonathon and Estafon cooked, we also watched the movie after, complete with sundae's for dessert.

The staff has created a great welcoming atmosphere and are extremely helpful in explaining the surrounding area and different food options nearby/within walking and/or driving distance. We ate at the Marlin one night, and although pricey...I had the BEST Tuna I've ever eaten there! Portions were good sized...and that meal we let our boys have dessert as well....Lunch the next day we ate at Costa Linda down the street. Excellent meal/price and staff at their restaurant too.

We had to change rooms as well, which I felt was a bigger inconvenience for their staff, than for us. We spent our first night in the Family Villa--which was great, we'd definitely rent that again and then moved to the Monkey room which was smaller, of course, but still a large room with large bathroom as well as having mini-fridge, micro and coffeemaker. They have dvd's you can watch in your room, and a small book exchange/library that our one boy read a few books from. The pool is small, but the boys enjoyed it for a while before going to the beach, and practiced up on their swimming techniques.

We met and talked to several of the other occupants of the hotel and everyone was extremely pleased with their accomodations there and raved about the staff.

Our last day, the boys spotted an iquana the size of a house cat and saw a monkey as it ran across the rainforest floor in the park next door. We missed the deer and the monkeys that sometimes appear on property.

We will definitely stay here again when we return! Thanks La Posad for a great time!

We saw more wildlife here than we did in the National Park. The titi monkeys came in swarms in the afternoon. There was a pet deer you could pet and feed soda crackers to. We also saw a raccoon and iquanas. We stayed in the Monkey Room which was spacious and comfortable. We loved the breakfast - lots of fruit and eggs or pancakes. This hotel also offered a movie and dining in three nights a week and encouraged the guests to visit and spend more time together. Jonathan was a great cook, and we especially enjoyed the mahi mahi dinner. The staff were amazingly helpful and did an excellent job of cleaning our room. We even had two loads of laundry done one day, and it came back folded neatly. We took advantage of the free phone calls to the states to call home one night. It was very warm there so the pool was an added bonus. We didn't have a car but we were right next door to Manuel Antonio Park, and we could walk to a number of restaurants nearby. We would highly recommend La Posada to anyone visiting Costa Rica. Thanks Mike and Jonathan for a great time!!
