What guests loved the most

“Great location for Manuel Antonio. No ocean view, just other buildings and electrical lines. We were able to watch the local monkeys climbing around on the wires, fun! Pool is beautiful.”


“Room with kitchen was well appointed. Would have been good for a longer-term stay, as it had all we would have needed to prepare meals. Friendly restaurant and bar staff were great with our two-year-old. Very accomodating. Pool and restaurant/bar area nicely decorated and surrounded by nature. A clean, well-designed place with nice little touches (recycling bin in the room, outdoor showers for when you get back from the beach) without the cost of the five star places. Monkeys, iguanas and birds just outside our balcony. Easy walking distance to the entrance to Manuel Antonio, although road to get to the hotel is narrow and tough to manage when cars are coming the other way!”

“Brekfast was truly fantastic, as was the location. The pool was nice, and staff gave flavoured water free which was great.”

“Tucked away at the end of a long busy touristy road full of hotels and restaurants, this hotel is tucked away at the endof it all and is surrounded by a huge ga rden. Minutes walk from the park,it's a great place to stay. No sea view, but ask for a room on the pool and garden and it's very calm and pretty (you will get a dawn wake up from the howler m onkeys). Very very clean and air nice. Great breakfast but ask for an made to order one. They are delicious while the buffet. Is uninspiring, and coffee leans to american tatses...”

“Extensive breakfast menu, very quiet, great pool and the staff were exceptional. They were closing the hotel the day we left for staff vacations but they still let us shower near reception before leaving even though we had already checked out. Staff couldn't do enough for you - they were great!”
