Wow, absolutely fantastic hotel in every respect.
Firstly, the view is out of this world. Definitely pay the extra money and get the full ocean view. We had room 10 and it was amazing. The bathtub was HUGE, seriously 3 people could have fit in! It was positioned so you could see the view while soaking. Perfect. The balcony had a hammock and chairs too to allow you to make the most of the scenery. If you're an early riser, you'll hear the Howler monkeys down in the park below.
The room was not luxurious but was very comfortable and homely. The air conditioning unit was nice and quiet which makes a change from a lot of hotels. The bed was comfy too.
Breakfast was good, with eggs made on demand and plenty of choice. Of course, having breakfast in the open air while looking down at Manuel Antonio National Park was a pretty nice way to start the day.
All of the staff we encountered were friendly, helpful and eager to please. We asked for laundry to be done ASAP as we were leaving early in the morning, and it was delivered to our room, folded and smelling sweet just a couple of hours later, despite it already being quite late in the day.
The swimming pool was gorgeous and never busy. Watching the sunset from here was spectacular.
We enjoyed it so much that after spending a few days in Corcovado, we returned for a final night! The receptionist recognised me and they gave us a discount on the room and upgraded us to a Premier Ocean view room as we were returning customers!! Fantastic customer serivce.
Overall, an amazing hotel and highly recommended.
