Stayed at the Villas de la Selva February 22nd, 23rd & 24th 2014 The “town” of Manual Antonio is really the entire area between the town of Quepos & the border of Manual Antonio National Park. The “town” of Manual Antonio is very touristy with many large high-end (expensive) hotels. We typically look for smaller hotels with some character, as... More

This hotel has amazing views over the Pacific. Rooms are quite basic but excellent value for money, when compared with others in the area. Close to the park beaches and restaurants. We stayed here in low season and had the place to ourselves. The manager couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. A basic understanding of Spanish would help if... More

We arrived and were greeted by a very gracious inn keeper. The views are amazing. The grounds well kept. The pool is clean and cool. The rooms vary in size but all have fabulous decks that overlook the ocean. The rooms have kitchenettes that make breakfast and lunch simple. The rooms are clean but a little rustic if you are...

This place is about 1km or so from the park entrance. Note that there is no sidewalk from time to time. Bus/taxi is the alternative. The villa is about 150m to the beach below, if you trespass through the ground of the other hotel below. It is a steep walk. There are a few restaurants up the hill that is... More

We arrived at the Villas De La Selva, rang the bell for some assistance and could not understand the person over the intercom. Two hotel employees finally came up to greet us, and they did not speak any English - so we could not communicate. We were off to a rocky start. We soon learned that you must take the... More

We have been lucky enough to find this hidden gem 3 years ago & have been back every year since. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Manuel Antonio. Irene was fantastic helping us out with fishing trips & day trips or anything else we needed. Beach at the end of the canopy tree line or a refreshing dip in the crystal... More

This 7 room hotel is beautifully situated overlooking the beautiful Pacific just south of Quepos. Rooms are well done and the view is spectacular! I think a bit pricey for the area but it's worth it. No breakfast but the rooms have small kitchenettes in them so it's easy to make do. Pool is large, deep and nicely done...beautiful tropical... More

The pool is nice and... More
