We stayed here for 3 nights with our 2 daughters aged 9 and 12. We had rooms next to each other. The rooms were rustic, simple but clean and very comfortable and we liked the balcony outside with comfy chairs where we could relax in the shade. The hotel was in a great location for the national park, the beach and restaurants and bars in Manuel Antonio. Look out for the squirrel monkeys and cappuchins on the walk from beach to the hotel. Wifi didn't work in our rooms but there are comfy chairs and tables near the bar and it works just fine there. The restaurant wasn't great we only ate there once and it was mediocre. There are other places within walking distance though. The breakfast was mostly cold, even the fruit was not that fresh and it was always the same papaya and pineapple option, Looking at other hotels in the area I think this is probably the best in terms of value, accommodation and location.
