4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed two nights here, as part of our tour of Costa Rica. The location was great. The Hotel is right at the entrance to the Manuel Antonio National Park, we walked right into the Park from the Hotel. The Lobby was separate from the Hotel rooms, which was not convenient. Many of the staff here did not speak English.... More

We stayed there for 2 nights and had a good time. The building is huge and has a big pool which we enjoyed. It is only a short walk to the beach. The rooms were spacious and had a well working air condition. Why do I only give 3 stars? Because there was nothing special about it. We had a... More

San Bada is located next to the Manuel Antonio park entrance, inside the park you can see many types of mammals and there are beautiful beaches, we took a tour guide for our excursion and it was worth it. The rooms of the hotel are medium sized, the beds are very comfortable, housekeeping made a great work cleaning our room,... More

Our tour bus arrived at San Bada in the late afternoon. We were shown to our beautiful rooms & immediately, the Howler Monkeys & the Squirrel Monkeys came out to greet us! WOW! What an exciting experience that was. We stood on our balconies & took LOTS of photos of them --- they were so close! After a good dinner... More

Hotel San Bada was a gem among the MANY hotels you have to chose from in the Manual Antonio region. I went during the rainy season in late June 2014 on my honeymoon and could not have been happier about our choice. We stayed for 3 nights, we were in a room conveniently right by the elevators (not noisy at... More

Easy... comfortable... all payment methods... room service. The Staff was always ready to sort out our needs 24-7. If you are looking for privacy, this is the perfect place. Still you dont have to go that far in order to find the action.

Rooms are nice, beds are comfortable and a good size and balcony. Lobby is all messy to start with, its a lobby/office. Everywhere you look there is a wall that... More

First impression is that you're in a really nice place. Give it a few hours, and you'll feel differently. Room had great A/C, safe and beds. Rooms were fairly clean, but very dark. There is a patio where at times you'll see monkeys in the trees. But the lot behind the hotel where the trees are is kind of a... More

Only a few steps from the Park. Nice and clean rooms, comfortable beds, nice bathroom, etc. The "business center" is two computers in a breezeway that gets no breezes and if you stay more than five minutes, you will be sweating. Be sure you go to the top floor for the view---and pool. Really nice. We actually saw a couple... More
