We spent a lot of time trying to figure out where to stay along the stretch between Quepos and Manuel Antonio. There were so many choices and one of the few requirements (with 2 kids) was a pool and the other was easy access to places to eat. Check and check. The rates were great too as we were there towards the end of green season.
We spent our first night in the monkey room and it was a really great room - had tons of space to put our items in the armoire and the dresser, which was a nice change from some of the other places we stayed on this trip. The only problem was the air conditioning wasn't working well in this room - we let them know in the morning and they quickly moved us into the villa which was awesome - lots of space to stretch out and while the switch wasn't necessary, they were much more concerned that we have a great stay with functioning air conditioning than anything else. It was so appreciated as it was certainly hot! There are some rooms in the main building, but many are private bungalows.
Breakfast was great each day and the selection was great. No one in our family ever left the table hungry. We really enjoyed the pool. It was small but they had a great selection of pool toys for the kids to play with. There was a nice lounge area as well so I could soak up some sun while the kids kept playing. One of my favourite details at this hotel was the fact they offered towels for the pool or the beach for the guests. It was such a nice touch and very much appreciated - we used them for both!
At lunch they offer pizza by the slice with a glass of pop for $2 and it was prepared hot and fresh and very good. It's not offered on days when the park is closed (Manuel Antonio park is literally right next to the hotel), which is important to know. You could also order a whole pizza, but it was much better to go by the slice. The staff were excellent at suggestions on where to eat, things to do and really did a great job of helping us get the most out of our time in the area. They even had flashlights in the rooms, which was important for walking back to the hotel after dinner.
I also loved the laundry service - we took advantage of this in several places on our 3+ weeks traveling around - it was the best, most affordable of all of those that we used. I can't say enough about this feature.
Truly, a great place to stay, nothing bad to say about it at all. Even had lovely soft, fluffy towels in the rooms. Might seem like an odd comment, but the towels across the country left a lot to be desired. Ragged, torn, rough...these were much more common than the wonderful fresh towels at La Posada - and face clothes, hand towels. A joy to behold. Not to mention there was soap AND shampoo in the rooms - that was the only place on our trip that had this and it was so welcome, to say the least. It was a two-in-one conditioning shampoo, but it was great. The daily cleaning service for the rooms was very thorough and the fridge in the rooms was a well used feature as well. Wi-fi reception was great throughout the property and the computer in the breakfast area was available for all guests who may not have had a device with them.
Would highly recommend and would stay again in a heartbeat. Just nothing bad to say about it, at all.
