We stayed at San Bada between 26th and 29th of November and we were very happy with our stay. The room was big and clean with a balcony where you could sit and watch birds (or monkeys if you have some luck, we didn't see any). At the 6th floor there was a pool and a bar from which you... More

Hotel San Bada in Manuel Antonio Costa Rico has fabulous views and the people reflect the owner's impeccable values. The food at the Congo Restaurant was fabulous but the owner should be emulated by all owners for the way he treats his employees and they in return treat his guests. When my wife needed potentially serious medical attention at midnight... More

We stayed at Hotel San Bada for 6 nights and enjoyed it very much. It's conveniently located next to the park and a short walk to the beach. The food was always good and the staff were very friendly. I especially enjoyed talking to Emilio and Jorge. If I could remember their names, I would list more, because they were... More

We just stayed here for three nights during our trip exploring Costa Rica. Our deluxe room on the 5th floor was beautiful with a jetted tub and stand up shower. The included breakfast buffet had lots of options. The hotel was right next to the entrance to the park, so you just have to walk out the hotel and into... More

This place has great views from the 5th floor of the pacific. The location beside the national park, is very good as well. 2 pools, one small rooftop and one large on the ground with swim up bar. Rooms are very nice and I had no complaints about the service. Breakfast was good, no skimping. However this hotel is only... More

We only planned one night at this hotel and should definitely have planned more. It is nestled right into the jungle and LITERALLY right next to the entrance to Manuel Antonio Park. To really see the park you should allow 2 days to explore all the trails and beaches. The hotel rooms are nice and their balconies look right into... More

First off, this is a beautiful resort adjoining to the Manuel Antonio National Park. The beach was fantastic, calm and warm. The resort is very quiet and great for all families and couples, we spent our afternoons at the sunset bar view. Overall the staff was friendly and helpful, they made our stay even more pleasant. The concierge staff was... More

Stayed there last week (2 couples). The hotel is gorgeous, right next to the entrance to Manuel Antonio Park. The food at the hotel's restaurant was very good. We couldn't take enough pictures of the beautiful hallways. The roof has a breathtaking view of the ocean, sunset and monkeys frolicking on the trees outside your windows.
