“Excellent B & B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Just returned from a visit to Manuel Antonio. Mike and Paul were excellent hosts. The facility is a tropical paradise. Paul cooks a delicious, hearty breakfast. It was relaxing to linger at the pool after a day at the beach. There is a bar at a luxury hotel adjacent to Coyaba which has happy hour with breathtaking views of the sunset over the ocean. Rooms are nicely appointed with tasteful decor. Paul and Mike arranged excellent day tours for us. In fact, Paul and Mike went out of their way to make our stay a memorable experience.

Mike and Paul have built an outstanding B&B for all travellers to Quepos/Manuel Antonio. Excellent rooms, fabulous breakfasts (varied and custom-made for dietary needs). Amazing hosting, advice and assistance for planning tours, and eating in the many restaurants in the area. Pool, patio and outdoor living area promote relaxation and great appreciation of just "being" in Costa Rica--the passing wildlife: tiki monkey troups, iguana and toucans were umforgettable. Suset at Gaia next door is truly remarkable. All in all, great value-added for Costa Rica!

Mike and Paul were great hosts! Highlights included delicious breakfasts, clean and comfortable room, lovely decor, great pool and outdoor living space, and helpful advice for our time in Manuel Antonio! Note - the sunset happy hour at the fancy hotel next door is not to be missed!

We had a wonderful time at Coyoba Tropical. Mike and Paul are relaxed, helpful, and very accommodating hosts. Our room was clean and spacious, breakfast by the pool area was delicious, and the landscaping was lovely. Taxis and the bus were super easy to catch right out the front door and we enjoyed being somewhat removed from the busy park entrance area. The only downside is the traffic noise but that is hard to escape in MA.

The Highlight: A Beautiful B&B

A gem of a B & B. Abundant and varied tropical vegetation, nice swimming pool, good size bedrooms, clean and well decorated.

The weak point: the noise

• The bedrooms are located a few feet from a main road which is noisy day and night, cars, motorcycles, and buses. There is a lull during the night, but if you're a light sleeper, this is not for you.

• During my stay, there were 3-4 dogs that had taken up residence in front of the B & B and who yelped overnight. Not long, but enough to wake me up.

• The owners are music and TV lovers. If you think you can relax in the evening on the edge of the pool listening to the sound of cicadas, forget it. You have the right to a rather old Jeopardy. One evening, I turned off the TV as nobody was in front. An error as one of the owners immediately rushed and turned it back on even louder. I understood the point and went back to my bedroom.

We went there from Dec 3rd to Dec 6th 2012.
We really enjoy the place. Very Clean and the hosts Mike and Paul are very good at it.

Paul`s breakfast are way more than perfect; especially those crepes with the bananas syrup "coulis". Mike can easily suggest you nice places or areas to visit if it is your first time in Manuel Antonio.

The rooms are all renovated and the look is pretty awesome. The backyard (or pool area) is all good as well with few nice dogs! And not to forget monkeys late in the day!

There are couple of very nice restaurant near by and you don't have to pay high prices to get very good meal.

I would definitely go back there ( and probably will )

Room Tip: It does not have to be by the beach to be perfect! Regardless wherever you go in Costa Rica, it is...

We recently stayed at Coyaba and had a lovely stay. Mike and Paul were great hosts and made us feel very welcome. They went out of there way to ensure that we were looked after the whole time.
We started with the upstairs room but relocated to the lower room due to another booking. We had decided to extend our stay. We preferred the ground floor room but both rooms were very comfortable. Mike was a wealth of knowledge re the area, places to go, restaurants, excursions and more. We enjoyed the homely welcoming feel of the B&B. The breakfasts were great and Mike even provided sandwiches one day and cappuccinos at night while watching television which we enjoyed.
The pool was lovely, the kitchen area accessible and the lounge area very nice and cozy. We took many pics of the monkeys and the humming bird at the front of the property. Restaurant wise, we particularly enjoyed SALT and visiting the local gallery. Highly recommend the catamaran trip. Ask the guys about the cafe where homemade cakes are made as they are superb. Quepos is a short walk away and there are plenty of buses. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend Coyaba.

Room Tip: We personally preferred downstairs.
