My wife and I went on our honeymoon and stayed here toward the end of our trip. We had an amazing experience! The hotel is exactly as described on the website, and the views were amazing. The hotel room is definitely set up for couples and may not be the best setup for a family (the shower is in the... More

There are a million hotels in the Manuel Antonio area, but very few if any compare to Issimo Suites. The accommodations were extraordinarily clean, and more than suitable for modern life. After many daily activities, it was very comforting and relaxing to return to our room to take advantage of all of its amenities - WiFi, oversized Jacuzzi and a... More

My husband and I just returned from a wonderful trip to Costa Rica. By far the highlight of our trip was our stay at Issimo Suites. We had spent the first few days exploring the areas near San Jose (Poas Vocano and the Pacuare River) and were excited to head south along the pacific coast-line towards what we had heard... More

On what started out with a shaky start (a 3 1/2 hour nightmare of a drive from San Jose at 12:00 am in the rain and fog) our stay at Issimo was the most relaxing and best 10 days we have ever spent. Even with our late arrival we were greeted by cheerful, up beat and English speaking staff who... More

My girlfriend and I decided not to do the typical tour around Costa Rica and stay in Manuel Antonio for 7 nights. We stayed at Issimo Suites for all 7 nights and loved our experience. Since we booked at the start of the rainy season (it didn't rain much at all) and for 4+ nights, we got a great discount;... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Issimo Suites to celibrate our 40th wedding anniversary. Our room was down in the basement tru a dark and dreary hall opening to a somewhat mediocre room. When we asked if there were more open rooms available, Elizabeth seemed to not have enough time to look at us. Since we were not honeymooners,... More

The service and views are lovely, the only problem we had with our room was with the water temperature, which was never warm or hot. Each time we talked to the front desk clerk, she told us she would work on it, but it never changed during our four'day stay. Otherwise, the staff and cleanliness of the property were first... More

Rooms are extremely large and luxurious, with large comfortable beds and awesome jacuzzi. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They arranged what ever we wanted, such as tours or even things off the menu. The pool and restaurant have an excellent view. The restaurant is totally open and romantic at night. The restaurant is pretty good, the chef is... More
