You will definitely get your exercise climbing the many stairs at this hotel. The casino was closed while we were better. The pool area is by the restaurant. If you can get a cabin, do so. Less stairs to climb. Breakfast was included with our stay. There are some good restaurants within walking distance. The staff are nice. This is... More

I went with some friends to the Byblo's bar to enjoy a football game, because they have few tvs with different games always. So we took some chairs and ask for beers, when the guy from the bar (black hair and beard, costa rican guy, can't remember the name) brought the drinks we aski him if they will put the... More

You don't want to stay here!!!! I reserved three nights at this hotel through Hotels.com but discovered on arrival there were many steep steps to be negotiated to go to and from the room - or anywhere on the property. Having foot and back problems, it was extremely difficult to get to the room. The next morning I explained the... More

I ordered take-out pizza from there a couple of times. I didn't really care for the pizza too much but the kids liked it. While waiting for the pizza to be cooked, I chatted with the waitstaff who were very friendly and took the time to help me with my Spanish. We had an entire conversation in easy Spanish. It... More

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon trip to Costa Rica with Gate1 Travel and we loved it! We loved that the hotel is surrounded by rain forest and we could even see white faced monkeys climbing trees! Pretty cool experience.The hotel does have a lot of stairs to get to the rooms and the pool but we didn't... More

We enjoyed our stay at Byblos. The restaurant was great-friendly staff and good food. It was located next to the pool. The pizza was fantastic! There was also a sports bar which was standard bar food. The bathrooms are a bit outdated-maroon sink and toilet, but functional. The bed was comfortable. I would stay here again.

We stayed for one week in Costa Rica in March 2015, and traveled to a few places. We stayed one night at Byblos. We stayed in 4 hotels total and this was without a doubt the worst place that we stayed. The hotel staff was adequate, the rooms were very tired and dated. I was glad we were only staying... More

My stay at hotel byblos was amazing. The food at their pool side resturaunt is impeccable. the breakfast/lunch waiter Eugene was very helpful with meal suggestions and my coffee cup never went empty. The breakfast was reasonably priced and more than filling. The pizzas are definatly big enough to share. While waiting for poolside lunch I noticed alot of small... More

Booked into this hotel with Gate 1 Travel. It is a challenge to get to the rooms, but I don't think any different than most other hotels in Manuel Antonio. Stairs everywhere. Room was clean and faced the Pacific. Breakfast was good. Best part was the wildlife. Squirrel and capuchin monkeys visited for breakfast and dinner all 3 days we... More

We really did love our food here. However, we chose the wrong table by the pool. We came after dark for a nice quiet dinner but a family swimming in the adjacent pool had other ideas for us. We had to move to a large table in the center of the restaurant to avoid being continually splashed. Not the restaurant's... More
