The personnel at this hotel were awesome, made some great friends. Lots of monkeys and birds. There are several great restaurants around, the seafood is delicious! Poolside breakfast is nice. The way this hotel is layed out offered lots of privacy, it was hard to tell that they were full. One warning - lots of steps.

This is a very convenient hotel when in the Manuel Antonio area. Easy walking to a few great restaurants and on the bus route. The rooms were huge and clean, although dated. The pool area was nice and the white faced monkeys added charm. The casino aspect is a little misleading as it is a very small area with limited... More

This hotel did not disappoint. It is a large hotel with a selection of rooms or individual cabins in a jungle setting. The pool area and restaurant were excellent. The room was large and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful and we enjoyed the themed night at the bar, particularly the karaoke. It is within walking distance of several... More

Located on top of the hill on the way to Manuel Antonio. Food service was very good, rooms adequate, casino is small, situated on hillside so some mobility required, beautiful setting, across the road from the hotels with view over the bay, close to other dining including La Avion, an interesting restaurant, small grocery, on local bus line with close...

Great place to have a drink, 2nd floor look out, secure parking (important in CR), gringo sports on TV, pool tables, bar food. Casino is kind of slow, dull maybe? It has never has drawn much of a crowd in 15 years that I know the place, but it is there and beats the one downtown on the first floor... More

I stayed at this hotel as part of a package deal and cannot comment as far as price. Though I was suppose to have an ordinary room I was upgraded to a suite. My room was clean and had everything I needed. The hotel Wifi is shaky. The hotel is located on top of a hill half-way between a town... More

This hotel was included as part of our string of hotels in the Gate 1 Fly-Drive Costa Rica package. Based on other reviews, we opted to upgrade from a standard room to a bungalow for an extra $20 per night, and I'm totally happy we did. The bungalos are roomy and very comfortable, and having that kind of privacy and... More

The good: rooms are neat well laid out, and clean. The bathroom was large with easy access. A/c was effective. The pool was lovely but too warm for a tropical location; some monkeys came around in the evening for a very cool show! The staff were nice, attentive and made us welcome. The bad: wifi was restricted in bandwidth so... More

A nice little casino hotel located close to the Manuel Antonio National Park. Do not expect a Vegas or Macau style of gaming entertainment as it only has 3 card table and some slot machine. It is normally pretty slow and quiet on the weekdays but picks up a little bit on the weekend. The in house club is also... More
