- what this hotel lacks in cleanliness, facilities etc: makes up for in location! -Literally ON THE beach: hotels in manuel antonio all get closer to the beach level as you go down the hill; hotel verde mar is right at the same level as the beach whereas other hotels may be at different elevation along the beach: to get...

I would be giving this hotel a lower rating if it weren't for the location. I have never had such a smelly hotel room. The musty smell was overwhelming when we first walked in to the room. The windows cannot be opened, so there is no way to air out the room. Why, in such a constantly humid location, would... More

This is so close to the beach. The room was nice, the wifi wasn't the greatest. We walked from the hotel up to the entrance of Manuel National Park, only about a 5-10 minute walk. The park was beautiful. Overall it was a good hotel.

It has a perfect location and very kind workers. The hotel was ok, the room we stayed in was very good for the price we payed, although the pool area could be a little more nice, as well as the exit o the beach, but no biggies.

We wanted a place close to the beach, and this hotel has direct access to a lovely stretch of shoreline. We also loved the kitchenette for saving money on meals. Our room was right on the end of the upper walkway, so it was nice and private with a view of the pool, in which we enjoyed many refreshing swims.... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for three nights. We rented a room with a kitchenette. It only had a microwave, a fridge and a toaster but the staff brought us a hotplate and some pans so we could cook our own meals. It is about a five minute walk from a small market where you can get everything you... More

We stopped in on a whim and thankfully they had a room available. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable and they have air conditioning, which in Manuel Antonio is a Godsend. The staff were very friendly and helpful in booking our kayaking trip the following morning. The pool was very relaxing after a long day of walking... More

Our room was clean and quiet. We thoroughly enjoyed the beach that it's on too. So beautiful!! You can walk to it in about 30 seconds. We also got to see 2 sloths in the tree over the pool! Very exciting. I would definitely recommend staying here. The bus stop is across the street so that is very convenient. Its... More

Booked this hotel based on photos of the beach. Location wise, walk down hill 10mim to Manuel Antonio park and its cafes. Uphill take a cab or bus to lots of food options. Beware-Windy roads, no sidewalk-fast cars and blind spots. Our room felt like a damp basement. No tv as advertised. Mold smell and urine smell in bathroom. Complained... More

This was our third and probably last time to stay here. We always like to give places the benefit of the doubt. Pros: It is on the beach. Convenient for sure. Also close to shopping and restaurants.. The refrigerator was nice to have and it worked well. A/c was cold and although ours had a problem the last night, they... More
