The location is awesome. Just a short walk to the beach. It's cheap for a reason. No pool. No restaurant etc. But with so many restaurants close by and the beach was our pool. There are heaps of monkeys in the grounds playing the same as you would see in the national park, our kids were so excited and was... More

The air conditioning, proximity to the beach, and the surrounding trees with monkeys are what I liked about this hotel. Air conditioning was a relief after a long hot walk around Manuel Antonio. Beach is a two minute walk away. In the morning, expect to be woken up by howler monkeys and birds - they are very loud but we... More

This is a pleasant B&B close to the beach and park. The room was delightful. Breakfast was okay. Location and property were attractive. There is a 1-880 number from the USA. Staff was very friendly and helpful. (Note that there are many stairs if stairs are a problem.) The walk down to the beach is easy. Take the safe, clean,... More

The monkeys are great! The wifi worked great! But my room was a bit dirty (old soap and soap wrapper in the bath.) The breakfast wasn't really worth having. The guys at the front desk are AWESOME. Very helpful! If I had had a clean bathroom, and a little hot water, I would rate it higher. But if just want... More

While our destination was the national park, we found this hotel very convenient to all activites. Walkable to the beach, though we chose to drive down. Water and waves were perfect for swimming. Good restaurant nearby is El Wagon; pizza was excellent. Also near El Avion, a restaurant and bar made from an old airplane used in the Iran Contra... More

Manuel Antonio was our final stop on our 8-day trip to Costa Rica. We booked the Jungle Beach Hotel through AnywhereCostaRica.com. We were in room #3 on the top floor of the building attached to the breakfast area. The room was large, clean, bright, and comfortable. The beach was just a short 3 minute walk away and downtown Manuel Antonio... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Jungle Beach Hotel. The beach was very close. The people in the office were very helpful giving information on local activities. The breakfast was good and included monkeys trying to steal food. They have adequate parking and 24 hour surveillance of the property. Overall it was great, and tranquil . My only complaint was...

We stayed here for three nights and it was lovely. The room was bright, clean and very comfortable, and the staff were really friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good and we were regularly entertained by capuchin monkeys! It is ideally located, within easy walking distance to the National Park. Would definitely stay here again!

5-10 min walking distance to the beach and other restaurants. Poor breakfast. Dirty room when we checked in whit a refrigerator that were dirty inside whit spots of sodas, wine and juices. Helpful staff. Howler monkeys that sometimes will wake you up in the morning. Would use this hotel again.
