Hotel San Bada has a perfect location right at the gate of the Manuel Antonio National Park and just a short walk from the beach at Manuel Antonio. The Park boasts lots of wildlife (much of which you can see from the hotel grounds) along with some of the best beaches in Costa Rica. The tours they arranged were top notch, especially the Canopy Safari canopy tour and the horseback tour of Mulguri. We highly recommend the Hotel San Bada!!!
Cristiån--driver, office staff, and tour guide--drove us to/from SJO. His English is excellent and his sense of what we might want to see/know along the way was perfect. When we arrived, we received delicious fruit juice drinks and a tour of the hotel (all rooms have a view of the jungle or the ocean).
The beach is nearby, the pool is gorgeous, the water slide is fast, the drinks are great. And most of all the staff is absolutely the friendliest anywhere. We were very well taken care of--by Cristiån, Susan, Dani, Dante, Leo, and Geiner especially--and felt like family. Their teamwork and respect for each other is terrific, too.
Two tips: 1) take lots of cash (US$ are fine), the nearest ATM is 3 km away, and many tours require cash and 2) though the hotel food and drinks are excellent, it is worth the cab ride or walk to try other restaurants, especially Falls Garden Café and El Avion.
