I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and absolutely loved it. This hotel is closer to Manuel Antonio than Quepos, but still about a 20 to 25 min walk to the main public beach. Luckily the bus stop is right across the street so you can get down to the beach within a few minutes. The rooms are kind... More

The Hotel Mandarina office is right on the busy road. But the rooms are in the back behind the offices. You quickly forget about the busy street as you walk down the steps. The pool and deck are surrounded by a lush jungle. Good restaurant choices within a 5 minute walk, many with incredible views. The breakfast is tasty and... More

We stayed at Hotel Mandarina for 4 nights during our recent trip to CR. The hotel is located on the main road between Quepos and Manuel Antonio National Park. As others have said there are many steps from the road down to the rooms which are on various levels along the stairway. My husband and I were placed in a... More

The hotel is located very central and has a beautiful size. Unfortunately our room was very dirty and the room service didn't clean anything (and didn't take the waste). Furthermore the equipment is very old and damaged. One point for the nice woman at the reception and the breakfast.

We stayed at the Hotel Mandarina in Manuel Antonio in our recent visits to Costa Rica. The hotel is setup in convenient location leading to the Manuel Antonio National Park and beach, mainly due to the Quepos public transport bus loop that runs between Quepos and Manuel Antonio has a stop close to this hotel. There are a couple of... More

Thank you very much for your comment. We really value our guests opinions and suggestions. We work hard to improve every day and offer a better service to our guests. Like most hotels in the surroundings we have to work with the topography of the area so unfortunately we can not avoid the stairs . More

We stayed in the "apartment" room up front and it was perfect for our family of 5. It was clean and comfortable. There is a separate bedroom with a queen bed and three single beds outside. (There is only one bathroom in the bedroom so everyone needs to share that.) There is a full kitchen also. It's a good location,... More

Excellent service and accomodations... beautiful scenery, nature, close to everything in town...I LOVED IT. I will stay there again. Viviana particulary is a great employee and person. I loved the free breakfast... the quiet surroundings are priceless for those wanting to be near the beach and in greenery.

Excellent Service. Was part of a wedding party and the staff at the hotel helped me with dry cleaning and logistics with no hassles. Wifi was a bit spotty, though. The breakfast was by the pool, with frequent visitors from monkeys, and was also quite delicious.
