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

Maybe I would rate this higher if we hadn't paid quite a bit for the room (it was nearly Easter). Out of all the hotels we stayed in over 3 weeks this was our least favourite. However, it was fine and conveniently located and clean, the reception staff were nice and there was aircon (more of that later). CONS: The... More

Pros: The location is perfect! Very short walk to the beach, restaurants, grocery stores, national park, etc. Nice grounds, very friendly bilingual staff. Air-conditioning. Staff gave great dinner recommendations. Free, if basic, breakfast. Cons: Was a bit loud as it's right off the main road. Free wifi was weak and there's no cellphone reception (but there is throughout the entire... More

This place was really amazing! The couple that own it are super welcoming and kind. The monkeys waiting for you to feed them made our experience that much better. We will definitely come back to this little gem that is just steps away from the beach! Very clean place and staff is super helpful! Thank you Elena and Chris for... More

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
