I recently booked a last minute trip to Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica during the holiday season. A lot of hotels were already booked but I found the Jungle Beach Hotel, read the reviews and booked a room.
First off, all the positive reviews below are absolutely true. There's no gimmick. Jungle Beach is a gorgeous, big-sized room, hotel with stunning views of The Jungle and terraces that make you want to sit and relax all day long.
I was able to make friends throughout my trip and got a look at some of the more pricey hotels in the area. In all honesty, Jungle Beach rooms are bigger, cheaper and outfit with fridge, wi-fi, AC and a terrific shower. I couldn't have been happier making Jungle Beach my hotel. The price is magnificent and you get much more than you'd expect for paying what you do. Plus, the hotel is literally up the street from the beach and a stone's throw from Manuel Antonio village where you can eat and drink at all hours. The Park entrance is all but a 10min walk.
Jungle Beach is ideal!
