The hotel is nice, the room was very large & the diversity of the wildlife experienced during the included river tours was great. We were there for New Years & the staff... More

You will read many fine reviews of the Manatus and they are all correct. Small hotel, lovely staff, good food, pretty casitas, wildlife, birds, and...air conditioning. Here is what I wasn't expecting: - well-oiled transportation from our hotel by bus to breakfast to the boat, to the hotel. Clockwork. Gustavo provided much info about Costa Rica. - the 1.5 hour...

I loved this hotel for what it was. It was a very small hotel in the middle of the rainforest. I loved that it was nice and since it was small there was not a lot of people. The staff were very friendly and worked very hard.

The room and bathroom were of a good size and the standard of housekeeping good. Free internet was available 24/7 in all the rooms. The walkways were covered and umbrellas were available for loan. All the staff were very friendly.

Wonderful stay at the manatus hotel. The staff were all fantastic - so cheerful,welcoming and helpful. Great place to explore the rivers and see the varied wildlife that exists all over Costa Rica.Equally a great place just to sit and relax and simply enjoy the luxurious surroundings there.
