Great Location. Within walking distance to the beach, restaurants and Manuel Antonio Nat'l Park. You can catch a bus to Quepos right in front of the hotel every 10-15 mins. From our room we can see monkeys on the trees and they came to play right on our veranda. Quite an experience. They should offer more selections for breakfast. Costa... More

We were only staying in Manuel Antonio for a night and really only spent time in our hotel room to shower and sleep, so we didn't need much. Our room was very reasonably priced and featured 2 large beds (for four girls) a bathroom and a refrigerator. We also had an air conditioning unit which kept the room SO cold.... More

Jungle Beach Hotel's name says it all. A small hotel situated in the middle of the jungle with a short walk to the beach. For the price, there wasn't much to complain about. We stayed in room 8. Two queen beds, fridge, air conditioning, etc. Breakfast included. The staff was very accommodating and it was clear they wanted their guests... More

We came upon this place by accident because the place in Manuel Antonio we had originally booked was awful! The staff is awesome. They helped us with everything we needed , booked our river rafting trip and our next hotel stay. There are howler monkeys around the site.

The hotel wasn't fancy by any means, but the wonderful location and the friendly staff made up for it. We were only about two minutes from the beach! The best part of our stay was the receptionist, Fabiola. She was so helpful when our reservation for Ziplining didn't go as planned. She knows how to get things done! Overall, we... More

This is an awesome natural hotel located 200mts away from Manuel Antonio beach and super close to the Manuel Antonio National Park. You can see the monkeys crossing in front of you straight to the beach in the morning! Rooms are big, clean and with beautiful painting on the walls. People on the hotel is always warm and nice. I...

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
