Family of 4 stayed in the villa for 4 nights. Adults slept upstairs (2 full size beds). Kids wanted to sleep down, each in their own futon. Futon mattresses were not comfortable-kids could feel the adjusting mechanism in the middle of the mattresses. We met the deer who pops in occasionally in the mornings. We got to see a troop...

This was my kids (Teens) favorite place we stayed while touring Costa Rica. Lovely, quaint, friendly & welcoming place steps away from the Manuel Antonio National Park. We saw and heard the animals right from our patio & the pool. We hope to return someday. Thanks for a memorable stay!

We're a family of 4---2 adults, a 6 yr old, and a 2 1/2 year old. We stayed here for 4 nights in mid-April. First thing---this isn't for everyone. It really depends on what's important to you. For us, we loved it-----the staff were immensely helpful ( they gave us tips, arranged tours, and made vegetarian meals just for us);... More

So many great things to say, I went to Costa Rica to experience the country and not some expensive resort that could be anywhere.. (across the street). This place borders Manuel Antonio. What does that mean..? It means the jungle does not stop at the edge of the park. The monkeys joined us for breakfast.. the deer showed up for... More

La Posada was perfectly located to enjoy the national park. They were super helpful with booking tours and my family of 2 adults and 2 teens had a great place to relax between activities. We walked everywhere we wanted to go in town and we brought our own snorkel gear to enjoy the beach at the national park. (Highly recommended... More

This was one of our top spots on our 2 week CR trip. Mike and Esteban were great in communicating with me by email prior to my booking and even arranged our car rental for us. Escoobie went out of his way to make us comfortable when we arrived early in the morning before our bungalow was ready, to such... More

I booked our Jungle Bungalow last year! I have read and re-read every review and looked at every photo several times since booking so needless to say I was very excited to finally arrive. I travelled with my partner, met up with other family members that arrived several days before us and we were not disappointed. LaPosada is a very... More

A friend and I spent a week here and we're extremely happy with our choice. We agree with the positive things others have said. We saw as much wildlife here as in the Park. The monkeys had a great time playing on the roof over some hammocks, we were visited by a friendly deer who licked our arms, there were... More

Stayed here one day with my family. Great location by the park entrance and near the beach. Nice atmosphere. Staff and even fellow guests so friendly. What is it about Costa Rica that makes fellow travellers so nice? Monkeys in the trees is the answer. Highly recommend.

La Posada is right outside the gates to the national park (which has the best beaches in town) and a 5-10 min walk from the public beach outside the park. The owner, Mike, and his staff are awesome — super friendly, welcoming, knowledgable about the area and various local events / nights out on the town. Plus they just got... More
