This year was our second stay at the manatus Hotel. We were so surprised to find a bottle of wine on our bed to welcome us back to the hotel. The staff were the same helpful, smiling and efficient people that made the decision to return so simple . Jason made our meals a pleasure, he was always happy, sometimes... More

My family and I had a wonderful stay at this property. All the staff were lovely, especially those working in the restaurant who were unfailingly friendly and charming. They quickly learned all our names and seemed genuinely delighted to see us each meal time. (A special "hi" to Monica from Sam!) We must also mention the fantastic Luis (junior) who... More

Family trip, recommended by Scott Dunn travel, and we had a magical time. The staff were lovely, fun and helpful. The guide was super-knowledgable and very professional and engaging. Absolutely nothing to criticise.

This a a small family run hotel in the jungle accessed only by boat. The service and enthusiasm of the staff was excellent. Our guide Luis showed us so much more than we'd have seen on our own. The food was very good too.

The manatus collected us from our hotel in San Jose, very smooth transfer and great guide for the journey to la pavona where we were handed over to Luis (snr) who was our guide for the rest of our stay (2 nights), and from where we took the boat to the hotel. The rooms are decent with TV which we... More

Father/Son tour guides led two amazing boat trips through the canals of Tortuguero where we saw amazing wildlife, 3 kinds of monkeys, tuncans and sloth not to mention caymens and a host of other animals. The rooms were comfortable and well appointed and the pool was clean and well kept.

The hotel was very welcoming and kind, special thanks to Luis for translating to English for us. The location is lovely with lots of interesting wildlife and animals although perhaps lacking in other activities. The food was decent but quite repetitive as there is only one place to eat. The pool is a nice temperature but too small to swim... More

Great place to be for tortuguero trip. Just better information for turtle tour will be helpful and morevtimeto visit the village. A shuttle between hotel and village will be very useful. Overall a very good stay
