“This is the perfect spot!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

I will never stay anywhere else in Manuel Antonio! Mike and Paul are awesome hosts and they really made our stay memorable--they practically planned our last day for us and they had awesome tour recommendations. The breakfast is delicious and the lodging is more than comfortable. They really love what they do and they go out of their way to make your stay worry free.

It was a home, awesome location, AMAZING hosts with delicious breakfasts. They were so helpful and gave really insightful and local recommendations. They recently redid their pool and jacuzzi and it was better than a resort. The outdoor living room was beautiful, and again, the hosts were welcoming and fun (and their three little dogs were cute).

The rooms themselves had character and had much more value than we paid for - you can't find this value anywhere else! Great ventilation, our damp stuff dried overnight, and it was just so cozy.

Again, these guys are great resources and on our last day they gave some really great tour recommendations and were well connected with the community.

Don't stay anywhere else! We highly recommend it!

Coyaba Tropical is a recently renovated smaller B&B conveniently located on the main road between Quepos and the Manuel Antonio National Park. A delightful swimming pool and new patio area backing up against beautiful gardens were completed within the year. Complementing the attractive surroundings, the owners (Mike and Paul) are able to offer great advice on area attractions and restaurants, willingly book tours, and Paul cooks an outstanding locally themed breakfast each day. We're not talking danish and coffee but a real full breakfast with copious local fruit options! Adding to the "homey" feel, the owners' well behaved dogs mill about entertaining guests. For those missing their dog back home, it's very much welcomed!

The location is good and while the hills can be challenging to walk, inexpensive bus and/or taxi service just outside the front door is easy to use. Having said that, several very good restaurants are within easy walking distance. We had a rental car and were able to park inside the gated area.

Our street facing room was spacious and very comfortable with a small outdoor porch. It should be noted that light sleepers or those wishing to sleep late may find the road noise annoying. Because Coyaba Tropical is located along a sharp curve on a hilly road, full throttle acceleration by trucks and motorcycles with minimal mufflers is not uncommon just outside the front windows. In addition, the rooster across the street does what roosters do at sunrise. Use of the AC certainly helps, and it is part of the Latin American travel experience. Those wishing a sanitized travel experience may be happier in Cancun resort.

It is worth noting that we spent a week during the green season this trip; our 4th to Costa Rica but first during the green season. While we had exceptionally good weather, after to speaking to several locals (and researching it in advance of the trip) it does NOT rain 24/7 in the green season. Mid to late afternoon showers following sunny mornings are normal -- reminded me of Florida in the summer in that respect. If you like to shop, sightsee, hike the park, or go on tours in the morning, chill out reading or relaxing in the afternoon, it's a great time to go. You avoid the high season crowds and the landscape / jungle is incredibly lush. We were disappointed that the only heavy tropical downpour happended once at 4:00 AM - it would have been fun to watch!

Hello again guys, thank you ever so much for the glowing review... are you sure you don't work for a travel magazine??? It was a genuine pleasure meeting and having you stay as our guests and we look forward to seeing you again on your next visit.

BTW, we had the opportunity to experience Emilio's Cafe "to die for" Almond Cookies the other day and completely understand why you had to stock up before leaving Manuel Antonio.

I had a wonderful time at Coyaba Tropical. The rooms were clean, modern yet very authentic. The home-made breakfast was extraordinary. It was easy to reach to the beach and the Manuel Antonio park. And the hosts were very friendly at the same time, professional. The overall experience was unforgettable.

We just can't say enough good things about our stay at Coyaba Tropical. Mike and Paul were the perfect hosts as they made fabulous breakfasts for us and gave us tips on the local area. Their establishment is so beautiful! They have this neat outside kitchen area with TV and comfy chairs. The pool is perfect, we liked that alot.

It is safe and convenient to the bus line. As the gate is closed our rental car was also safe!

I highly recommend the Coyaba Tropical!

Room Tip: Ask for the room with easy access and no stairs.

Mike and Paul have done a lot of traveling around Costa Rica and they wanted to make sure that the Coyaba Tropical reflects the best of their experiences, which is why it's such a gem! They truly care for the comfort of their guests and this is evident in their attention to detail where the rooms and common areas are concerned. They also want to do all they can to ensure guests get the most out of their experience in Manuel Antonio, which is why their recommendations helped to make this leg of our trip so memorable! I highly recommend the Coyaba Tropical (if you're lucky enough to book one of the three rooms), not only for its comfortable rooms, amazing breakfasts, and relaxing pool area, but also for Mike and Paul, two of the most friendly and caring hosts we've met!

Spent a week at Coyaba Tropical and it was a perfect vacation. Breakfast each morning was absolutely fantastic, the room was spacious and comfortable, the property is gorgeous, and the personalized attention rivals any 5 star resort. Mike and Paul are phenomenal hosts and anything we wanted to do while in Quepos was handled for us, and each recommendation was on point. We will absolutely return and are already making plans to send family there as well.
