Manuel Antonio was our final stop on our 8-day trip to Costa Rica. We booked the Jungle Beach Hotel through AnywhereCostaRica.com. We were in room #3 on the top floor of the building attached to the breakfast area. The room was large, clean, bright, and comfortable. The beach was just a short 3 minute walk away and downtown Manuel Antonio... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Jungle Beach Hotel. The beach was very close. The people in the office were very helpful giving information on local activities. The breakfast was good and included monkeys trying to steal food. They have adequate parking and 24 hour surveillance of the property. Overall it was great, and tranquil . My only complaint was...

We stayed here for three nights and it was lovely. The room was bright, clean and very comfortable, and the staff were really friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good and we were regularly entertained by capuchin monkeys! It is ideally located, within easy walking distance to the National Park. Would definitely stay here again!

5-10 min walking distance to the beach and other restaurants. Poor breakfast. Dirty room when we checked in whit a refrigerator that were dirty inside whit spots of sodas, wine and juices. Helpful staff. Howler monkeys that sometimes will wake you up in the morning. Would use this hotel again.

On our first trip to Costa Rica several months ago we discovered the Jungle Beach Hotel. The rooms were clean, gorgeously painted with tropical scenes, and the price was right. We had a few disappointments but decided to try again. And it was so much better this time - a charming young woman met us in reception, and she gave... More

The staff were very welcoming, especially the new cheerful American recruit at front desk. We had arrived very early and whilst we knew the room would not be ready they did ensure we were able to check in a few hours earlier than normal. In the meantime we were given towels and headed to the beach which was as nice... More

We returned this year after about 5 previous visits. We were not as happy with our room this year. We always skip the breakfast. There are a couple of nice restaurants in town which is walking distance.The beach is close, weather perfect, close to Manuel Antonio park. Our favorite part is the paintings on the walls and all monkeys.

Would not recommend this hotel for anyone unfamiliar with Costa Rica. The staff seemed like they did not want to interact with the guests and were quite unhelpful. They say there is wifi in the rooms, which is true, but the service is quite poor and cuts in and out. If there are rooms above you prepare for a lot... More

Jungle Beach is an ideal name because it like you are living in a jungle and yet are stones throw from the beach! The rooms are roomy and comfy, TV offers several English channels, shower is awesome, towels and toiletries are ample (unlike most other Costa Rican establishments), staff is friendly, breakfast is alright, location is fantastic. 10 minute walk...
