This was the last stop of our 10 day trip. Stayed 3 nights in a beautiful exec suite. Because it is the "low" season we were able to upgrade after we got there. Exec suite was amazing with wet bar, 2 TVs, and our favorite, a Jacuzzi tub on the balcony. All 4 of our family got in there when we got chased out of the pool by the thunderstorms. Great place to watch the lightening over the ocean. It is on a cliff so there isn't an easily accessible beach, but the pools are very nice. There is a beach you can walk to (about 15 minute walk down dirt/rocky trail). We went once, but probably wouldn't recommend it. There is a free shuttle to Manuel Antonio Park and they will give you towels which was great. We somehow didn't understand the pickup directions and made the mistake of coming back to where we were dropped off. You actually get picked up in a different location. Make sure you look on the map where that is. We ended up having to take a cab back because it was pouring rain. Lots of great wildlife on the Hotel premises. Saw lots of birds, frogs, monkeys, racoons, etc. Included breakfast had lots of choices and was very good. We ate dinner at the hotel every night (not walking distance to any other restaurants). They had a special/theme each night and we ordered that each time. It was good. Would highly recommend this hotel if you are not expecting to be right on the beach.
