We stopped in to this restaurant on our walk from Manuel Antonio National Park to the beach. Service was friendly. They offer a set prix fix meal, one option for one price. On our visit it was still breakfast time. The meal was 1 pancake, fresh fruit, scrambled eggs, rice, beans and toast. Served with tea and coffee, ALL of... More

Clean and very basic rooms. Good service by staff, reasonable bar/restaurant. Only the common toilets and bathrooms could have been kept a little better, but not too bad. Good value overall. Would stay there again. Located between the two main attractions of the town; the beach and the entrance to the national park.

When I decided to stay here I looked up on a guide and here as well. My goal to pick a place to stay in Manuel Antonio was only the location. Nothing else. I wanted to stay steps from the beach and the park, and Costa Linda suited perfectly! And for 12$/night, even greater right! I'll list the positive and... More

Great location, WiFi was OK. Very good price, but quite basic. Could do with a mirror in a the room, and a more regular clean in the toilets. Toilet was quite far from some of the rooms, makes it a bit of a mission when nature calls at night. Rooms had good netting on the windows at least.

My sister and I stayed here 3 nights and had a great experience after our poor experience in Quepos (rude town). Close to the beach, close to the park, amazing $4 (2000 colones) breakfast. Our room wasn't horrible, our fan was very squeaky, but we just went with it and there were times when it would be quieter! Bathroom isn't... More

This place was fantastic. I got a private dorm for the same price as most shared rooms. There's a restaurant cooking up some amazing "tipico" meals, and free coffee. And you're a quick 2 minute walk from the main beach in Manuel Antonio. Awesome setup.

Just ate lunch at the restaurant after a morning at Playa Espaldilla. The fruit smoothies were delicious and cold! The plato tipico con pollo was delicious, a good portion and only 2800 colones! Que fantastico! The service was great. They speak enough English but practice your Spanish.

300 meters from the park and 100 meters from the beach, the location of this hostel haven was so prime. Its about a 2 minute up the hill from the last bus stop, the bus runs every 15 minutes between Quepos and Manuel Antonio for about $.50.

This hostel was perfect! The staff was wonderful (especially Oscar), the food was amazing for an affordable price, and the accommodations were good. The best part is the location - it's less than a 5 minute walk to the beach. We will definitely be staying here again!
