This place is about 1km or so from the park entrance. Note that there is no sidewalk from time to time. Bus/taxi is the alternative. The villa is about 150m to the beach below, if you trespass through the ground of the other hotel below. It is a steep walk. There are a few restaurants up the hill that is within walking distance.
Similar to Heather's review below, we rang the bell when we arrived by the main road and the Spanish-speaking employee came up. With our limited Spanish and his limited English, he managed to show us where the hotel parking is by getting into the car with us.
He then showed us Room 5 first, the room with a great view, slightly larger, I think, and is the closest to the parking but it is more costly. He then showed us Room 3, the room that we booked. The view was still great, but it was higher up with more stairs to climb - which was fine for travelers going by bus/taxi. But for those with their own car and has heavy wheeled luggage, it can be difficult. We took Room 3 at the end. The interesting part was that our credit card was already charged based on the price of the more expensive Room 5, and we were refunded of the difference in cash.
The room itself is fine with a double and a single bed and has a functional kitchenette with utensils and a covered pan. You can get limited and more expensive grocery from the mini-supermarket in Manuel Antonio "town" higher up the hill, or head down to Maxi Pali just outside of Quepos for the larger department store-like supermarket.
The front porch is the best part of the room as it is facing the sea and has a hammock and a swinging chair, and a couple of chairs and a table which is perfect for breakfast! The bathroom is ok. The shower has hot water. If it doesn't, play with the switches on the shower head. It has 3 settings: off, warm and hot.
We saw some monkeys and birds from the porch. The view was great although we didn't see the sunset as it seemed to set behind the hill from our viewpoint. The swimming pool is a real gem in this kind of weather!
I think this is a nice little place to stay in, although I wish it is closer to the beach and more restaurants. I guess the pool and the seaview make up for it.
