We enjoyed our stay at this hotel - it was a short walk to the entrance to Manuel Antonio National Park, as well as to a nearby beach and several nearby restaurants. A "tipico" Costa Rican breakfast was included with eggs cooked to order, gallo pinto, and a few other items. We felt it was a good value. The room... More

I was just there in April and it was perfect for being as active or laid back as you want. A small hotel, beautifully decorated, sparkling clean, a block from the beach ( but they also have a pool), family-owned and kept as if it were a gem....now if I could just get used to the hot weather (they have...

Lovely and unique hotel within a couple of blocks from the national park and a short distance, 2 blocks front the beach. Nice rooms with individual air conditioners. Nice bathrooms. The rooms open onto a nice covered veranda with comfortable chairs and settees. There are no phones in the room but that was no big deal. Great wifi for free.... More

Nicely situated in walking distance to the National Park, with access to some wonderful beaches and a host of wildlife. We saw sloths, howler monkeys, numerous birds and some amazing insects. Beware if you take fruit onto the beach as the cheeky monkeys come down to pinch it and anything else they can get their hands on! There are many... More

Perfect location. However the restaurant is overpriced for evenings, so go out nearly, lots of choice but we liked Cafe del Mar which is on the beach to the left. Wifi in rooms. Toilet paper to go in bins :(
