We found that the the amenities here were nice, but the location is key to Manuel Antonio. Easy to walk down to the park or catch the bus towards Quepos. The room had good AC and a fridge. Breakfast was pretty basic, but to be expected. We did have a little trouble with our shower due to them performing maintenance... More

My kids and I loved this hotel! First you are within walking distance to the local beach there (Playa Espadilla) and Manuel Antonio National Park. The beach alone has so many fun things to do! You are also at a beautiful property that is located near the jungle so you get the added bonus of having monkeys come through in... More

This hotel is clean with great air con (it was 34 degrees!) The breakfast is basic, but the fruit is fresh and lush. But the best bit is how we walked out of our room at breakfast and one morning there were howler monkeys climbing through the trees in front of us and the other mornings there were howlers and...

I did a ton of research on the Manuel Antonio area hotels before deciding on the Jungle Beach Hotel and I did not regret my choice one bit. As you pass through Quepos on your way toward the park, you quickly realize that you don't want to stay in town... chain link and barbed wire to protect business... lots of... More

Sit on your balcony and watch White-faced Capuchin and Red Squirrel monkeys traverse your field of vision (room #11) through the trees on their way to the blue rope road crossing to the beach. Breakfast wasn't terrible, just basic - open air breakfast included cereal, fruit, toast, peanut butter, pound cake, juice and coffee and ready by 6:00 AM. Rooms... More

Wildlife is the main attraction here - so much so that howler monkeys woke us every hour or two and dumped about a gallon of dung on our rental 4x4 LOL. Great value, big room with 2 doubles (#11) for south of $90 with everything but a pool and hot breakfast. Close to beach, nice staff, great location. Needs better... More

Why Stay Here: Pro: - Excellent value for that extremely popular part of Costa Rica. - The room was clean. - The AC works very well and cools evenly. -... More

The room are nicely decorated with AC and wifi. The hotel is located 10 min from the park. The breakfast is terrible, close to what you can get from a motel but with the fruits... The staff was not super friendly and helpful. No swimming pool but the beach close by.

The Jungle Beach Hotel was chosen based on the web site and some discussion in a guide book. It is an average hotel at best. The rooms were not the cleanest and since it is close to a busy room it was noisy. The internet was not too back and it was in room. The breakfast was not even continental... More

We stayed at this hotel on December 27th to 29th. We booked well in advance but didn't realized that these are the two busiest days of the entire year for this town. We are not crowd people and were worried that the hotel would be crazy. It was so NOT. It was quiet, just a few rooms. The front desk... More
