This is a great place to stay - the rooms are clean, the beds are comfy, the air-conditioning is good, the pool area is nice, the bar is decent and the breakfast is generous. It's a five minute walk to the beach and they provide you with beach towels as well as room towels. Let me be totally clear -... More

I cannot say enough about this place. We happened here by default-- were originally scheduled someplace else but I'm so happy we ended up here. The location is perfect. EASY walking distance to both the National Park and the Public Beach, as well as restaurants and shops and even to the bus stop to take you to other restaurants!! Now... More

Hotel Review: We arrived a day early on our trip, so our other place was booked. We were referred to Playa Espadrilla. What luck! Family of 4 shared a family room (1 king, 1 twin, and a portable bed) Comfortable beds, good pillows, great A/C. There is free wifi in pool area or lobby, but not in rooms. The grounds... More

When it's pushing 30°C maybe more and it's humid it is an effort to walk the two blocks up the hill to the hotel. Hidden in the corner we found it! Don't know if we could not see because of the sweat in our eyes but we walked straight past it!! (Women!!) The people at the reception were very welcoming... More

The hotel is very near the beach of Manuel Antonio and the Manuel Antonio National Park. We can recommend an early morning walk through the National Park before returning for breakfast in the hotel. The reception assisted us with booking a good tour around Quepos. The restaurant serves a great tuna and the bar has some nice cocktails. All of... More

We spent five days here after traveling around for another five days. Our room was clean and spacious. The bed was pretty comfy. The bathroom was decent. The water wasn't always really hot, but was still comfortable for a nice shower. Our air conditioner went off a couple nights, but hotel staff were quick to fix it and offered for... More

Was pleased with the hotel location a short 5 minute walk from Manual Antonio National Park. Room seemed clean, grounds were pretty and the breakfast was wonderful, food and the setting. The public beach was also only 5 minutes away, but was very crowded and I saw a lot of trash.

We stayed for 5 days at this hotel. Rooms were great, lot of space and well equipped. Location of the hotel is close to the park entrance as we'll to the beach. Breakfast was good and the pool area although not big gave the kids plenty of fun. Stuff was friendly and helpful.
