My boyfriend and I traveled to Costa Rica for the first time and we chose to stay here. We stayed in the Ocean view room (AMAZING view) and were supposed to switch to the jungle view for the last 3 nights. They offered for us to stay in the ocean view at a lower cash price, so we said SURE!!... More

My boyfriend and I live in Costa Rica and Manuel Antonio is definitely one of our favorite beaches. We usually rent condos when coming with a bigger group but every once in a while when we go by ourselves we stay at a hotel for a couple of days. After searching the net for affordable hotels in the area we... More

During our 3 week holiday in Costa Rica we stayed a many simple places wirh great value and we only required a clean room and atmosphere to have a pleasant stay. It was to our surprise and sadness that this hotel will be forever remembered as our worst place of our entire trip! Thank goodness we only stayed 1 night!... More

The hotel website says 5 minutes to the beach, but this is only if you have a car. It is probably a 40 minute walk to the beach. The bus stop is also not extremely convenient. It is either 1/2 mile up the (steep) mountain or 3/4 mile down the mountain. Proximity to the beach aside, it was a very... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend in July of 2009 and when i left I felt like i made close friends for life. The hotel is only a 5 minute taxi ride from either Quepos or Manuel antonio beach and it's a 50 cent bus ride to either. At the reception Lorena is really sweet and friendly and very accomodating!...

We drove by this hotel and asked for the availability. It looked like a fun hotel to stay and the hotel had a swimming pool. The first room we saw was the one at the lower level. I felt really sad when I saw the room - I could stay if I had no choice, but I preferred not to.... More

First time in Costa Rica and my boyfriend and I found this place very charming and unpretentious. The hotel is owned by two brothers from San Francisco so they know how to satisfy Americans expectations without losing the Costa Rican tropical feel. The staff is extremely friendly. Good complimentary breakfast and the swim up bar makes for a great relaxing... More

We went to Costa Rica in late May in the rainy season and still had a blast. The mornings were sunny and hot and it would rain on occasion in the afternoon. We stayed at La Colina for 4 nights and got one free. The free breakfast is good you can choose from costa rican eggs, rice, beans, and toast... More

I recently returned from visiting Manuel Antonio which is probably the most beautiful place I have ever seen. We stayed at La Colina for 6 nights and were very pleased with the service we received. Those at the front desk, Rodrigo and Lorena, were both very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts that are included are good--a few of the choices... More
