The Hotel Manoa is a strikingly beautiful place with little bungalows and duplex type bungalows built into a hillside in the jungle. It is a huge property (really huge) and beautifully landscaped. Our view was spectacular. The fact that the property is so large is kind of a problem unless you are in good shape. Being older, I had to call for a shuttle to take me to the restaurant and to the front desk. The free breakfast was outstanding with loads of delicious fresh fruit, pastries and omelets. The restaurant at night was over priced and not nearly as good as at breakfast. The hotel is probably 5 miles from the town of La Fortuna so just going to the super market or out to eat requires a taxi. One thing I did that I recommend to everyone is to order a sim card from ICE and use a world phone (unlocked) so you can call taxis, etc. The wifi at the hotel didn't work very well and was very slow.
