Staff Went the Extra Mile

Posted 10-Aug-2016
Pros: Proximity to the national park and the fruity welcome drink
We began our stay by being diverted into a king room when our family of four had reserved two queens. The hotel staff went out of their way to make our stay more enjoyable and - without prodding from us - relocated us into a full suite the next night (a big surprise and huge treat). The suite was beautiful but the staff's commitment to our happiness was the biggest impact for me. Thank you to Francisco at the front desk for going out of the way to brighten our vacation - we are very grateful!

The hotel was fine but had a few issues

Posted 05-Aug-2016
The hotel was fine with no major issues. I normally do not do reviews but this is more of a warning! They ran out of beach towels every day and I had a few minor plumbing issues. The plumbing was repaired the next day. My main concern is the Public beach nearby. The nearby vendors recklessly operate their business with very little regard to public safety. My son was seriously injured by the Parasailing vendors. There is no designated area for them to operate so all beach goers are in danger. Their was a rope under the water which is not visible, so when the boat 200 yards out in bay takes off the rope comes out of nowhere. My son received severe rope burns on his back. He also received burns on his knee and foot. Aside from my sons pain, the worst part was the vendor’s attitude when i brought it to their attention. I literally had to ask for an apology. The local lady from beach who rented the beach chairs said it happened all the time. The hotel acted somewhat concerned but said there was nothing they can do about it because it was public beach. It was the same parasailing vendor that is in some of their promotional photos.

Excellent hotel in Manual Antonio

Posted 05-Aug-2016
Excellent hotel right at the entrance of Manual Antonio national park. Beach is also just few steps away. Rooms were large and modern looking. Views to see are restricted from rooms due to vegetation but from 6th floor , you can have great views. Great breakfast. Will definitely recommend.

Hotel San bada

Posted 05-Aug-2016
Upon arrival at the hotel everyone was very nice. They told us about their facilities and showed us around while going to our room. In the evening they even called to see how our stay was going. It was a great location If your main goal is to be near mAnuel Antonio park, it is literally next door. We also booked transportation with them to go back to the airport and had a very knowledgable and friendly driver (Mauricio). I would recommend this hotel to Anyone wanting to stay by Manuel Antonio and feel as if they are almost in the park! You will see animals from the hotel even!
