My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights while in Manuel Antonio... We did lots of research on different hotels in the area and decided on this one due to price point, breakfast offered and proximity to the beach. We were not disappointed! The rooms are good size with TV, free wifi and hot showers! We enjoyed breakfast (coffee,... More

Jungle beach is worth the price. Nice, big rooms with airco. Good showers. People complaining breakfast are whiners. There are no hot things like bacon and eggs, to eat indeed, but the buffet offers toast, fresh fruit, coffee, juice, cakes, beagles, jam. As much as you like!! What is wrong with that? Rooms are clean and cleaned every day. Strong... More

Two of us stayed here for two nights while visiting Manuel Antonio and had a good experience. I particularly appreciated the strong WiFi connection and the hotel's proximity to the beach and park. However, I might want to stay somewhere else next time to be closer to food. The hotel is about a 15 minute walk to Manuel Antonio National... More

A very friendly jungle hotel, near the beach and the national park. Many restaurants and shops nearby, be warned for the many tourist traps. Hotel has a friendly ambiance and friendly service. Rooms are tidy and cosy, not spectacular, just fine. Free wifi, free parking, free simple breakfast. You will need a car to get around. A friendly place for... More

Stayed 2 nights in Nov 14. It wasn't that bad but didn't like it or feel comfortable here. Generally I stay in cheaper places and sometimes private room in a hostel. This got good reviews so thought would treat self. Wasn't a treat at all! Good things - location 200 metres from beach - good sized room with 2 double... More

3.5/5 - Basic hotel, clean and nice. Breakfast is toast, coffee and fruits. Priced as a hotel, but is close to a B&B. Our bed was a spring mattress that gave us a backache. The sheets and blankets were worn out and torn in a couple of places. That said, it had an AC and fridge which we were thankful... More

our room was clean and bright, but the "breakfast", which was just fruit and bread, was covered with wasps and my wife is quite allergic. I went to the office to ask if there was bug spray or something to help - and the man there said he could not control nature. later in the day when our we-fi wouldn't... More

There was nothing fancy about Jungle Beach Hotel, but it was a decent price and had a good location (right across from the beach). Parking is also included. The room was painted very pretty, had good AC, a nice... More

There was nothing fancy about Jungle Beach Hotel, but it was a decent price and had a fairly good location. The room was decent with A/C, Wifi, a fridge, a safe, and a TV which we didn't use. Bathroom was clean and quite nice. They have large blue beach towels for you to take to the beach. Breakfast leaves something... More
