This hotel was one of the closest to the beach of all the hotels we saw in Manuel Antonio. The beach is basically across the street, and it is an easy walk to a few restaurants. The hotel was very clean and the staff was helpful and friendly. Breakfast is fresh fruit and a variety of breads, more of a... More

Jungle Beach was the fourth place we stayed at during our trip to Costa Rica and it was absolutely lovely! The staff was helpful and gave us directions to a great pizza place in the village, the room was incredibly large and clean, shower was excellent, breakfast was light but filling enough to make it until lunch and the hotel...

The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Also, the rooms are large, clean, and have air-conditioning. The breakfast in the morning is simple, but delicious. They also have howler monkeys and white-faced monkeys almost every morning, which is awesome for nature-lovers. Would definitely stay here again.

I recently booked a last minute trip to Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica during the holiday season. A lot of hotels were already booked but I found the Jungle Beach Hotel, read the reviews and booked a room. First off, all the positive reviews below are absolutely true. There's no gimmick. Jungle Beach is a gorgeous, big-sized room, hotel with stunning... More

Really clean rooms, with fridge, TV, wi-fi, and beautiful murals painted on the walls. There were monkeys everywhere outside! We also saw a sloth right across the street from the hotel. It was like a 5 minute walk to the beach, very convenient. For the price, we thought it was perfect! I guess the only bad thing is that you... More

Showerhead had strong hot water. Room was also pretty large. Staff is very friendly and manager went above and beyond to help us book tours. Free... More

For a great price my sister and I had two clean beds, delicious breakfast and a very helpful staff! The best part of this hotel, however, was its proximity to the beach. It is just a two minute walk from the beautiful coast line. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are staying in Manuel Antonio.

The room was spacious, bathroom totally remodeled, air conditioning, cable TV, WIFI, coffee available early, great selection of Continental breakfast items, quiet (even though it's near the road), safe in-room, clean and super friendly staff.

My husband and I were traveling with a friend. We didn't have any booking and after shopping around a handful of places, found Jungle Beach Hotel. Trust us - we've done the leg work, you won't find better value for money so close to the beach! :-) The location is perfect. We stayed in a triple room, and the kind... More

First, this really isn't a typical Bed & Breakfast. However, the breakfast was more than adequate with fresh pineapple, papaya and other fruits in addition to toast, and a type of pound cake. The hotel is about 60 yards to a semi-private driveway that leads down to the north end of the beach. It's also about a 250 yard walk... More

We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. The monkeys often go right thru our property on a regular basis and our guests really like that. It's wonderful that you were able to see the sloth too! There is some road noise during the day in some rooms, but it quiets down considerable in the evening and... More
