The hotel was lovely. We booked another place for part of our 8 days in Costa Rica and were thoroughly disappointed. At the last minute we asked if Issimo Suites had availability, and luckily they did! The hotel was very accomodating throughout the ordeal. The view was lovely of the Costa Rican coast with monkeys climbing all over the resort.... More

We stayed here b/c our first choice hotel was sold out for the 1st night of our vacation. Issimo was 3x the cost of the other hotel we stayed at in Manuel Antonio. The room was awesome! It was like a high end hotel in the US. We did not need this much luxury. I felt bad about filling up... More

My Husband and I went to Manuel Antonio and Issimo Suites at the end of April into May and stayed for 7 days. We had a wonderful time. Pura Vida! The Hotel The hotel itself is beautifully appointed and romantic. They are in the process of switching their focus from a "family hotel" (which it is not) to a romantic... More

I have stayed in some of the best resorts in the US, Issimo was by far my and my families best all around experience in a resort. I can't say enough great things about this resort. It is very small (9 rooms) and this was our first stay in a small, boutique hotel but we loved it. I spent 5... More

We have just return from Costa Rica and we stayed at Issimo Suites for 5 nights, I wish I could stay there for more! Everything here was great, since the moment we got there, the waiter had for us delicious welcome drinks, they took our bags to the room, and a beautiful arranged room was waiting for us, with flowers...

Issimo Suites is a tiny little hotel perched on a ridgeline off the main road in Manuel Antonio. It's location is nicer than most, as you have great views of the ocean and what remaining rain forest there is. And it is attractive. But if you are looking for a honeymoon spot, this is not it. There is no distinction... More

I have never written a Trip Advisor hotel review before but I have had such a bad experience dealing with Issimo Suites that I feel compelled to write and warn anyone considering this hotel for both a stay or wedding in Costa Rica. I had booked the entire hotel for my upcoming wedding later this year. After being promised the... More

We just got back from our honeymoon in Costa Rica and we spent the last four days at Issimo Suites in Manuel Antonio. Our room and the hotel were fantastic. We stayed in room 6 which has a great balcony with a full view of the Pacific. The hotel staff was incredibly courteous and Angel at the front desk was... More

Everything was great! The dining was good, the pool was good. The spa was great. The only things that could have made it better was if the air conditioner worked properly before we reported it and if the phone was not broken but besides that everything was AMAZING!

First the disappointment Booking this place was so tedious we nearly gave up. There was only one member of staff who controlled the whole thing. If she wasnt there when we telephoned in frustration when emails werent responded to, then noone else had access to her correspondence. It took a week of email to-and-fro to get a tariff and offer...
