I saw a sloth, three species of monkeys, and several toucans from my balcony. Sone ppl at Manuel Antonio didn't see that much wildlife! The rooms are gorgeous, the staff are friendly and it was by far the best place I've stayed in CR. Playa Biesanz (a free local favorite beach) is only a two minute walk away.

Go in June(off season), 3min walk to a secluded bay. Sloths, 3 varieties of monkeys, iguanas, toucans. This place was amazing! The staff was great and the free breakfast was fantastic! While there we did a rafting trip and a zip line trip, both were awesome.

Great stay

Posted 01-Jul-2017 on Hotels
Visited for 3 nights and had a great stay. The pool is perfect for enjoying the sun and the entire complex is surrounded by jungle. The service was great and the location is off the main road which makes it quieter but still easy to access the shops and restaurants in town.

Nice but a little lazy presentation

Posted 22-Jun-2017 on Hotels
The hotel overall is nice looking, and property presents well. Getting down to the details, it's a bit lazy of a property. They do just enough, but not resort level. The amenities look nice at first, but some are little dirty, like the tiles. Lower bedding near the floor. Dated tv with no hdmi. It sounds petty but even the do not disturb signs are cheap and falling apart. There were little inkjet paper ads for the spa that were bleeding ink because of the humidity. See, lazy, just enough - not quite at a 'resort level'. But for the stay there, getting out in the town it was fine we only slept and had breakfast there. The patios are notable if you ask for an upgrade. Breakfast was ho hum, fruit good, everything else average. Pizza good, woodfire. Other menu items bland. Over priced. Goto Emilios nearby for nice ambiance dinner. Another note, because of the hillside location it is not easy to get anywhere on foot. The taxis have a bit of a tourist lock. It's $10 to go even down the street, manuel antonio, or into quepos. We did find a taxi in tiwn for $8, or 4000 colones versus 5000. And he gave us his number so we used him instead...

Couples stay

Posted 31-May-2017 on Hotels
The hotel was clean and pool area was particularly good. We were given an upgrade which was great. Breakfast was a choice of 6 different items cooked freshly, served with fresh fruit. Then help yourself to coffee and toast. It was Ok without being great. We enjoyed a few happy hour cocktails but didn't eat in the restaurant as it was pricey . and very quiet. I do think a 4* hotel ought to give complimentary water in the room. It was nice to have a fridge/ mini bar however.

We stayed for 2 nights and it was great hospitality. We had parking access right in front of our room, and we saw monkeys out our window! The food was amazing! And so were the views.

Good pizza

Posted 28-Mar-2017 on Hotels
Location was out of the way on narrow challenging road. Breakfast was good with good service. Woodfired pizza was good, but they forgot the toppings and were a little stingy with the water. No views of the ocean from the room, but did see monkeys.
