I am writing this as quickly as I can right after the incident so it is fresh in my mind. My wife and I are traveling throughout Costa Rica after living at a resort in La Fortuna for the last few months. We will be heading back to the United States in August. We have our little chihuahua with us... More

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.

The staff and lodging facilities were spectacular. The food in the Pizzeria was very good -from breakfast to dinner- every meal was great! Need to schedule an excursion - the reception staff can make all that happen - need transfer transportation - yep- reception can do that too! Melissa is the best! Thank you for a wonderful weeks stay!

The property hasn't seen a repair man, a coat of paint, a real gardener who knows what a weed is or a waiter that likes his job in what seems like a very long time. The problems appear to be on going. The casino looked like a prison gym. However, that didn't seem to bother the hookers that worked the... More

We have seen howler monkeys, white face monkeys, squirrel monkeys right outside our lovely, air conditioned room. It is just steps away from many pleasant restaurants and gift shops and has two restaurants on premises. Nice place as long as lots of steps are not an issue. There's no elevator, sadly.

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.
