We moved to this hotel after a bad experience at another hotel, based on eating at the restaurant a few times. The hotel was very clean and had very friendly and helpful staff. It is a 5 minute walk to the beach, and the rooms were equipped with good air con to help cool down in the often humid climate.

I had a good esperience staying in this hotel. The food was great, the place so nite and clean, and the bestcof all was the people working there. I received a really good service. You will be around of nature and you will be able to see a lot of wonderful birds out site your balcony

Great location a few minutes walk to Manuel Antonio NP or to the public beach (also beautiful). Lovely hotel, very clean, friendly and helpful staff. Good breakfast and cocktails. Very good mattresses. Bonus on last day.... monkeys by the pool! Would definitely stay again.

Very nice location. Attractive property. Friendly staff. Good bar and restaurant. Easy access to the beach and national park. A little expensive but not bad. Only criticism is that at checkout, they wouldn't let us pay in local currency but converted to dollars. Someone has his eye on making a dollar on the exchange rate.

Located within a 5-minute walk to either the entrance of Manuel Antonio National Park, the bus stop, or the local beach (Playa Espadilla.) Staff was very friendly and helpful. Arnoldo helped us arrange a kayaking tour through the mangroves, suggested local restaurants, and even let us borrow a cooler for packing a family lunch into M.A.Natl Park. Also, Arnoldo and... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect for the beach and the national park, plus the bus stop is at the end of the street. We had been traveling for several days so it was great that they offered laundry services. Monkeys come in the afternoon, ironically during happy hour.... More

If you're visiting Manuel Antonio National Park, this hotel is perfectly situated. It's a two-minute walk to the beach and several restaurants one way, and less than a five-minute walk to the park entrance the other way. The room was comfortable with a powerful AC unit, if you want it. It offers a solid breakfast buffet, and they keep the... More
