We originally booked an 'ocean view' room. We walked into the room and yes it's technically an ocean view. Pull out Magellans spyglass and you'll be able to really see the ocean. The room looked like a 1980's refurbished motel, with pink drapes, old appliances, and beds. I wouldn't recommend the main hotel. We immediately requested a Bungalow. If you... More

For the most part we enjoyed our stay at Byblos. The resort setting is quite nice. We had a warm and friendly check-in. Property is well maintained and is clean. We ate at both the sports bar and the restaurant and food was quite tasty. We had numerous monkey sightings and got glimpses of other animals as well. Sports bar... More

This place is tucked into the edge of the jungle with lots of tropical vegetation and wildlife. That was my favorite part of the stay. Our room was OK, but not very convenient. The Wifi didn't work in the room, so I had to go to a public area to connect. There were so many steep steps that I had... More

Don't ask for anything beyond your key. We had to beg for an extra towel. Desk staff are in a coma. They were no help getting reservations or anything. Poolside bar/restaurant staff are great. I would not recommend this hotel. The location is great but cheerless staff are disappointing.

Dear Jaimie A, Our highest priority is the satisfaction of our guests, so it was with a heavy heart that I read your review. As a secondary matter we love dogs, and other animals, and enjoying having them on the property. The hotel staff is a heavy supporter of the local organization, PAWS, that provides temporary foster homes, as well... More

Rooms were large with small bathroom. Hotel shows some wear but makes up for it in ambience. Staff is friendly and responsive to needs. Breakfast has many choices and served in beautiful outdoor setting next to pool. Monkeys entertain most evenings. I have recommended this hotel to a friend and would stay here again.

We actually stayed here for our Honeymoon in March of 2009 and had a wonderful time! The staff was EXCEPTIONAL and our accommodations were very comfortable! The pool is a great place to relax and watch the monkeys and the bats at dusk. You will NOT be disappointed staying here! Sure, you can stay in a fancy schmancy resort, but... More

Our stay at Byblos was top notch. Everything from booking to check out went smooth as could be. Great location, accommodations, and service. I would highly recommend Byblos to anyone traveling to Manuel Antonio, and certainly plan on returning there myself.
