We have made multiple trips to Costa Rica and stayed in every region and 95% of the time we stay at small rural inns and B&B places that are in rural areas. We don't expect air conditioning or satellite TV but we do expect a good mattress and a ceiling fan and to be able to take a hot shower... More

We spent 4 days, 3 generations, grandpa, parents, 2 kids, and fully enjoyed it, including adventure type canopy rides. It may not be for everybody, tent like structures, no air conditioning, no TV. A key positive factor in our case was extremely friendly service by all and particularly the owner Aurora, who is a personality worth knowing by herself. She... More

This is a great concept hotel. Open aired (but with netting) cabinas in the middle of the forest. Truly relaxing. Each room has a jacuzzi / hot tub for personal use. Seems very eco-friendly and very well done. A little expensive (seems to be between $150 - 200, at least during high season), but definitely worth it for a truly... More

This was my fiancé and my first trip to Costa Rica and the staff and owners at Almonds and Corals ensured it will not be our last. The food was delicious and with a free breakfast and dinner included every night you are staying at Almonds and Corals, the price was right. The rooms were beautiful, with great views of... More

This was the PERFECT choice for my daughter's graduation trip!! Online it looks great and in person it is BETTER!! As a Wildlife Biology major, she was in heaven with her camera, as I was! The raised "cabins" were elegantly basic, so we felt a part of the jungle and could hear and see all wildlife in the area! The... More

Our family of three stayed here for two nights. We were pleasantly surprised by how large our room was, and it included a hammock! The bathroom included a stand-up shower, sink and toilet, so was very basic, but was adequate. The real attraction is having your own cabin on stilts in the middle of the jungle, it is a very...

This is a beautiful property with tree house style units right in the jungle. It was so relaxing to hear the rain on the roof and the howler monkeys at dusk. The sea is almost at your doorstep. We were impressed by the friendly staff who all seem to love their work and the guests. The food was amazing!! Can't... More

This place is amazing, though it's definitely not for everyone. If you like you're private, quiet rooms with all the creature comforts it's probably not for you, but then neither is Manzanillo in general. However, despite the rooms brine separated from the rainforest by mere mesh walls and cotton curtains they are still very comfortable, and the leaf-thatched roofs and... More

Curtained palaces in the jungle and just by the beach. Friendly and helpful staff. Plentiful food and great breakfasts. No swimming right in front of hotel but great swimming beaches a short walk or bike away. Recommend dolphin spotting!
