When I was there, I'd remembered seeing some reviews that basically gave this place no real accolades for the service or the breakfast, but raved over the location. Now, having just been there, I would say that was fairly accurate. The location was so great, being right on the beach and less than 10-minutes beach-walk distance to Manuel Antonio Park/Beach, that I hardly minded anything else. Our room (standard) was actually quite large, and clean and comfortable, with a balcony, and a view of the ocean, so no complaints there. They had security at night, and a gated parking area on one part of the property, so that felt good. The restaurant space is wonderful, right on the beach, under the thatched roofs, and one of the two mornings we were there, we had quite an entertaining monkey show while eating breakfast. The breakfast itself however, was nothing impressive food-wise, but again, the environment made up for that. I also was a little bummed there was no hot tub/jacuzzi, but the pool was warm and nice to swim in. I would probably give this place a higher rating than others did, but that could be partly due to coming there during the low season (Sept) and we felt like we had the whole place to ourself!! (There were others, but not many.) It was awesome and peaceful. Loved all the gigantic lizards and iguanas everywhere. Also, Jacqueline was so very sweet, as she stayed late to wait for us to arrive, even without having made a paid reservation in advance, but rather only emailed her that we were on our way. I was grateful she was there when we finally made it after a long drive (after 9pm). For the price ($68) I thought it was well-worth it and I recommend it unless you're a high-end hotel snob. For a beautiful environment right at the beach, you can't go wrong.
