Just left here after a stay of two nights. I made my reservation while in country via the iPod Touch I am carrying. This made it difficult to complete the reservation form that is commonly required here. But the staff here was quite patient with me as I fumbled around and made several last-minute changes.

We chose Manuel Antonio to stay at during our visit to Manuel Antonio due to its close proximity to the beach and national park. Whilst fairly expensive compared to other hotels during our stay in Costa Rica, we expected this given that the area is a main tourist destination. Our room was large and clean with a comfy bed and... More

...across the road to the beach WHAT MORE DO YOU NEED? Hotel was clean and cheap with polite staff - no thrills but when you have such an amazing natural scenery just steps from your room - priceless. We stayed 3 nights and would definately recommend to anyone looking for a simple accomodation (50$xnight).

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights during the summer of 2008. We arrived late at night but the receptionist was there to help us with our booking. The hotel is located on the street across the beach and one entrance to the park. The room are spacious, simple and very clean. They do not offer the breakfast in... More

Nice, friendly hotel with a perfect location for the beach. Staff was very friendly and helped us plan the rest of our trip. It's not particularly fancy, but it is a bit better than the usual basic hotels in Costa Rica. Had a great couple of nights here with my boyfriend.

Bottom line: It's across from the beach and beside the entrance to the park. The restaurant across the street is reasonable - and on the beach. The prices are reasonable for the area. The decor isn't going to leave you in awe, but it was clean and accomodating with my request for multiple towels. My one disappointment was that the... More

The staff at the front desk was excellent. They gave us great recommendations and helped us arrange all of our transportation. The hotel is located right off of the last bus stop and is only a feet away from the beach and the national park.

My husband and I stayed at Manuel Antonio hotel for 4 nights. The staff was extremely helpful. Since we didn't have a fridge and had left over food, we asked the desk if we could store it in their fridge, instead they gave us one of those Styrofoam coolers with ice, which was perfect. Although it might be a little... More

Our family of 5 stayed for 2 nights, we found the rooms VERY clean, great hot showers, comfortable beds, helpful and friendly staff. Good location across from the beach, close to restaurants, outdoor market, national park. We had a rental car, but were able to walk everywhere. Only drawbacks were no pool and AC a little noisy. We had several... More
