The people at Villabosque really made the experience. The day we arrived prior to the check-in time, I was digging through my bag to get my swimsuit and then put my bag in storage until our room was ready. On this my 5th trip to Costa Rica, I finally made physical contact with a scorpion-it stung me twice on the... More

This place was amazing! I cannot express that enough. The staff is impeccable.

But clean and super friendly staff. Very helpful with everything. The location is optimal very close to beach and national park entry basically both are just outside. Close to some beach restaurants and a small market. However the good food is up the hill at other restaurants. Other than that is very nice. I give it 3 stars because 3.5... More

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

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
