If you are looking for service or a beautiful room- not the place for you. But if you care more about location and natural beauty, then this place is perfect. The rooms are very basic, but clean. But if you want to be right on the ocean - which is a rarity in Manuel Antonio - then this is the... More

This place has been beset with problems since I've been going to Quepos/Manuel Antonio, 19 years. It really is 2 places--a "hotel" and then cabins very close to the beach. I stayed in one of the cabins for 1 night. I love this place for the restaurant and their beach bar--both right on the beach. So when you're walking the... More

The ONLY thing this place has to offer is its location. This would be great if you were camping on the beach. The rooms are beyond creepy. If you are a person that is very low maintenance and dont mind staying in a shed wo basic things like a safe shower, than this place would do, but why would you... More

The owners of this hotel shut and padlocked a gate in my face stranding my family and one of their own guests on the beach on Thanksgiving Day. We had young children with us aged 4 months, 1 year, 5, 6, and 7. The next access to get off the beach was not nearby and involved getting a taxi ride... More

My wife and I decided to spend a few days in Manuel Antonio so she went on the search for a place to call home. She found Eco Hotel Arboleda and after reading some reviews we decided to give it a try. We had a terrific time with all the tranquility we were looking for. First off the hotel is... More

This is a beautiful beachfront hotel. Very relaxing and a real natural paradise, filled with exotic plants and palms trees. They have a cool tiki bar with ocean view and some great cocktails, a medium pool but its pretty deep and clean. The food at the restaurant is awesome! Everybody was very nice to me and I'd love to go... More

Perfect location for family vacation or romantic getaway! The rooms are clean and neat with air conditioning and cable tv. The beach is easily accessible and the views are amazing! The staff is wonderful and make you feel welcome and at home. I highly recommend this hotel! Price is the icing on the cake!

My partner and I just returned from 4 days in Hotel Arboleda. The experience was poor to say the least. The only, and I mean only, redeeming quality for this poor excuse for a hotel is that it is directly on the beach in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. The negative reviews on this site are, from our impression, accurate and... More
