I don't think there's a better ocean view from any hotel in Manuel Antonio. Though there may be a couple of fancier (and pricier!) hotels, we checked out one, and found it overdone and not as interesting as this unique boutique hotel. Luxurious and comfortable bed and room. All meals we had were very good, but the (included) breakfast out on the terrace every morning overlooking the harbor was particularly delightful. Lovely pool area. Very good value for the price; will definitely stay here again if/when we return to this beautiful area.
We saw a monkey traverse the railing of our patio once, but it never bothered us. It was fun to see a large iguana sometimes park himself outside our patio on the grass.
The only minor problem we had with it was the small parking lot, difficult to maneuver in and out of.
