The bungalow pictures in the advertisement did not come from our unit. The building was showing its age and need for maintenance. Cracked plaster, no hot water, and while they advertise "some bungalows are on the beach", they left out the fact that some are 91+ vertical steps from reception, across the road from the beach. Would not recommend.

I love this place. We were a large group of families and Karahe was perfect for us. It has a stunning location right on Playa Espadilla, one of the best beaches anywhere on earth! The tree-shaded area right off the pool-side/beach-side bar/restaurant was the perfect place to lounge all day between nice short walks into town and the many excursions... More

My husband and I had such an amazing time at Karahe Hotel! I am so glad this is the hotel we picked. We did a lot of research planning this trip over a year in advance. Let me tell you there are very few hotels in Manuel Antonio located right on the beach. This property is directly on playa espadilla... More

The hotel is a bit outdated and it isn't fancy at all, but we didn't really care for that. It's all about LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION! The beach is awesome! Best spot ever! Not that many people nor vendors. Pool is small but nice. Overall comfy and clean. Recommended if you're looking for the best beachfront hotel. Restaurant very simple, good... More

We finished our vacation in Costa Rica at the Karahe Hotel and we were very pleased with the accommodations. Our room was clean and comfortable.The grounds at the hotel were a well tended garden with lizards and monkeys to view! Breakfast was included in our package and it was always well done. We ate other meals at the hotel and... More

We wanted to be on the beach and this was the place. Although our luggage didn't arrive, the staff made our first day the most comfortable possible. We even were able to swap rooms when the AC was not working like it should. Brian, the water at the beach, is the BOMB!! Ask this man anything about the hotel or... More

I booked a more expensive hotel for the last few days of our holiday as a treat, when we got there it wasnt a treat at all. The room was grubby and there was building work outside the the door. When i asked to be moved to a room away from the work the staff were very unhelpful and rude.... More

Stayed in "superior room" on the 3rd floor beach side of the property - I highly recommend this. Location is awesome. Room is excellent. Beautiful property, gazebo for breakfast and dinner overlooks the beach. Our second year in a row staying here - will likely return again. Food was just OK, but the gazebo next to the beach where you... More

We stayed in the bungalows up on the hill not the building near the beach. The reception looks very dated but very helpful staff. The bungalows were also dated and had no where to hang your clothes. But it had the greates view of the ocean (room 9) and a nice terrace to relax on. But 91 steps to climb... More

Ok the place is a dump. I refused to shower for 2 days the bathroom was so gross. Thank God for the ocean and pool. Breakfast beside the cesspool was a treat. Can't something be done about the run off going past the dining area? Ambiance I guess. Breakfast....that was just nasty. Coffee is a must even though it was... More
