We traveled to Manuel Antonio in February 2013 and got lucky to be able to stay in this hotel. We did not have a reservation in advance so we were pleased that they had a room. The hotel grounds are very safe, and beautiful. The hotel is built on the side of a hill so there are paths and steps you need to be able to navigate to get to most of the rooms. Though you can tell that this hotel is older, it has been well cared for and is a good value. Our room was large, had great views, and all the appointments of home. I would defiantly stay here again when in the area, and the restaurant on-sight is also fantastic!
