We had no prior reservation and we were lucky to get enough rooms for our group of five adults. It is a nice hotel with a spacious room and a nice bathroom. A problem in the toilet flush that kept it flushing was quickly repaired. It is a quiet hotel, and just across the street to get to the beach,... More

This hotel is located at the very end of the main drag in Manuel Antonio which makes for a nice quiet setting. The rooms are roomy and clean and the air conditioner works great. The restaurant and bar offer great food and cocktails. Shopping is within easy walking distance. The front desk is very accommodating and made reservations for our... More

Don't expect any luxury beach resort, it will be just plain and simple here. Friendly staff. Prices are on the high end for what you get. Rooms are clean and have a safety deposit box. No tv. Our room # 1 had no A/C but a ceiling fan. We are not sure if we would stay here again. Maybe when... More

The hotel is a nice and small hotel, good quality/price ratio. The employees seems to be very honest and helpful. This is the only front beach hotel in Manuel Antonio (the beach is just few steps from my room). And is located within 5 minutes walking from the national park. Manuel Antonio hotel is the last hotel located in the... More

The beach was crowded, but safe and clean. If you are short of time and want a zoo like certainty of seeing the animals, don't miss Manuel Antonio NP. Convenient location, good staff. Reasonable priced and variety of foods, even for us vegetarians in all of Costa Rica. Friendly welcoming place

Clean, friendly and cannot beat the location, just 2 steps away from the beach, bordering the Park (we saw white-faced monkeys right there), and walking distance to the Park entrance. Pick a room on the top floor and facing the sea.
