The hotel isn't too bad but could use some updating. The air conditioner had difficulty maintaining temperature. The bathroom occasionally fills with the odor of sewage. The electric hot water heater in my room was not working. The room was clean and the hotel is very close to the entrance of the national park. The hotel restaurant was o.k. but... More

My girlfriend and me passed in front of the restaurant and decided to go eat lunch there (nice prices), but as soon as she took one bite of her meal we found a WHOLE COCKROACH immersed in the sauce of the meat. Needless to say we stood up and left, but at least the owner had the decency not to... More

I stayed two nights. On the first night I had problems with a toilet that didn't flush, a shower with very little water coming out and a door lock that didn't always open. After reporting this the bathroom problems were fixed while I was out. The door however remained a problem and I had to get help getting in on... More

Spent 2 nights here as part of a Tucan travel tour of Central America. It's a nice hotel and a great location- just a short walk to the beach and a short walk to Manuel Antonio national park. Our room was nice- very clean. The swimming pool is lovely. I would recommend this hotel.

We stayed here for two nights after a long but great group tour through Costa Rica. Our previous hotel was out in the middle of nowhere and very basic, so for us this hotel was pure luxury. Beds were comfortable, the rooms were large and the air conditioner was working perfectly and silently. The only downside was that there was... More

Quite small rooms but so close to the National Park. Very quiet location and although staff were friendly they are trying to sell the hotel so not much personal, friendly service compared to other similar hotels. Lovely to hear birds and also howler monkeys each day.

Very basic hotel. No beside cabinets or bedside lights, so we used torches to read our books with the main light on (which was nearer the door than our beds), then one of us would get up to turn off the light when we wanted to go to sleep. Our room was on the ground floor, over-looking the car park,... More

Hotel has a large "palapa-style" restaurant visible from the road (did not stay at hotel). Ate 2 times at the restaurant - food was great both times. This restaurant is about a block from the park entrance, and about 25 meters off of the road. The large green roof and many fans make it a cool spot for food &... More

to restore our energy after spending 3 hours round Manuel Antonio National Park, so we popped in here for a bit of lunch. I really enjoyed the Caesar salad, loads of chicken, although it could've done with a bit more bacon, & a lot less lettuce, but one of the best! We also enjoyed a couple of beers with our... More

I had just hiked the park and hungry, I saw an excellent price on a fish typical casado plate. It turned out to be fresh water Tilapia... although we were just meters from the beach... And the typical beans rice etc which were also very mediocre in their flavor. I left most of the food on the plate, paid and... More
