The location is perfect, right outside the park, and a short walk to the beach. I traveled alone with two small kids, and I loved the fact that we could spend our mornings in the jungle or on the beach, and then relax all afternoon by the pool. The staff was very helpful with everything I needed and I cannot... More

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...

Our family of 4 (kids 7 and 9) thrilled with our stay at this charming little hotel. The rooms were clean, the included breakfast delicious, the staff was very friendly and helpful. (with setting up tours, recommendations on restaurants, general tips). My kids were initially disappointed with the size of the pool, but soon were in there enjoying it and... More

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
