My wife and I chose this hotel for our short, 3 day honey moon. The rooms are very similar to the rooms in her house in Coronado, San Jose. Single pane vented windows allow for the experience of how most locals live. We never used the air conditioner. The rooms stay cool enough, even when it is pretty hot outside.... More

I will start with the cons: Cons : hotel located right on main road so it is noisy, and the beach is across that busy road. Our room on the ground floor was dark, but had privacy and a terrace. It was located next to the parking, we left our laptop unattended for 10mns and it was stolen. The owner... More

This hotel has a jungle feel to it as it is surrounded by trees. Lots of monkeys hanging around the trees at the hotel. It is a 5 minute walk to the beach and a 15 minute walk to the Manuel Antonio National Park. Lots of restaurants nearby. Rooms are spacious, cutely decorated and very comfortable. Breakfast was adequate which... More

I highly recommend staying here. The room was cute and convenient. Bathroom was basic but everything you need. But it's the location that made it an amazing stay. You are 2 minutes away from the beach. 10 minute walk to the main town. The staff was really friendly and the head manager was extremely helpful. The internet was reasonably fast... More

I loved this place. It is conveniently located, just a 3min walk across the road to the beach and 15mins walk to the National park entrance. On our balcony we saw and heard howler, capucin and titi (red) monkeys! If you had bananas you can even feed them , well only the titi monkeys as they are friendlier. our room... More

This is a unique and fun hotel to stay at, with a few drawbacks. The price was good for the area, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the location is great. The rooms and beds are comfortable and the AC works well. We really liked the hand painting on the walls - ours looked like a beach! The monkeys... More

Location is great. You can cut through to the beach a couple of hundred metres away. You can also walk to the national park. There are not many restaurants that one can walk to however there is a great fish and chip resturant about 200 metres up the road. Breakfast is simple but good and the common areas are nicely...

The hotel is just a few metres away from the beach, it's comfortable and clean with a great breakfast and helpful staff. The national park and beaches are a must, though the wildlife comes really close to the hotel. Would definitely go again the beaches and sunsets are amazing
