“Individual, clean, great breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

We were very happy having found this place. Mike and Paul were great hosts and have created their own little peace of heaven so close to Manuel Antonio. The rooms are not only absolutely clean and well maintained, they were decorated with so much love for details like we haven't found in any other place we stayed in Costa Rica. The pool is a great place to hang around, and so is the "lounge area" in the backyard with the open kitchen. Breakfast is served every morning fresh, with plenty to eat. Yes, the road to Manuel Antonio is in front of the house, but there is not much traffic between the evening and the morning and we did not feel disturbed by that at all. And even better - the bus stop to Quepos or Manuel Antonio is right accross the street. Price-value for that area is very good! We loved the Sarongs they give you for the beach.

Mike and Paul are gracious and helpful hosts at this wonderful little Bed & Breakfast. The whole vibe is like you're visiting your most fun uncles, and they've got terrific suggestions for nearby attractions. Be prepared for monkeys overhead in the backyard.

Big recommendation, per the owners' own: walk right next door, take a free shuttle to the top of the hill, and enjoy sunset views and the only cheap drinks in town, at a sensational 5-star resort. All in all, great value at Coyaba.

Room Tip: Ask Mike -- he was very helpful w/ suggestions on rooms.

I spent two weeks at Coyaba Tropical while attending a Spanish language institute. Mike and Paul offered a warm and relaxing atmosphere in a cozy B&B atmosphere. The room was excellent and Paul's breakfasts wonderful especially the fruit. We were visited by the local wildlife, especially the monkeys who welcomed us on several days earlier in the day. My schedule required an earlier breakfast time. Mike and Paul were very willing to accommodate me. Whether you are visiting overnight or an extended stay, this is a great choice. It is convenient to both Quepos and Manual Antonio beach and park. Enjoy a visit with these great hosts.

Room Tip: Mike and Paul are very honest about their complex being beside the road from Quepos to Manual Antoni...

The pictures on the website don't do it justice: Coyaba Tropical is a little slice of paradise in the already heavenly Manuel Antonio. It is conveniently located between the town of Quepos and Manuel Antonio beach and National Park. The accommodations are lovely--Mike and Paul have done a wonderful job in restoring this historic property. The pool area is its own little tropical oasis, and our room was spacious, stylish, and comfortable. The daily breakfasts were also quite good. Although it's difficult in general to get around this mountainous stretch on foot, there is a cheap and convenient public bus that runs frequently and stops right outside the hotel, and cabs are plentiful. Coyaba also has parking if you rent a car.
As many have noted, Mike and Paul are outstanding hosts. They happily provided recommendations for restaurants, beaches, and day trips, all of which were spot-on. They also went above and beyond by helping my travel companion find a room for the night near the airport when he hit a travel snag. They really go out of their way to ensure that your experience is memorable and fun. They have poured their heart and soul into Coyaba Tropical, and it shows. Highly recommended.

Mike and Paul go out of there way to make your experience VERY comfortable.
Every morning by the pool, Mike will serve you Paul's delicious homemade breakfast dishes, as well as fresh local fruit, juice, coffee, tea, yogurt, and toast.

Located in the middle of all the restaurants and hotels in the Quepos hills, you have many options at your fingertips. Walk down the road to the local soda "El Arado" and eat like kings for very reasonable prices. Alternatively, for a more romantic ocean view sunset experience, go directly next door to "La Luna" for incredible tapas and 2-for-1 cocktails.

MIke and Paul have a wonderful B&B perfectly located just a few minutes from Manuel Antonio Park. Recently rated Costa Rica's best beach.

Thanks again for choosing to stay with us and also taking time to provide your comments. We greatly value feedback from our guests confirming things we are doing well, and also help us identify any areas where we can improve. It was a genuine pleasure having both of you stay with us and also a pleasant surprise to learn that you both work for the same company I did before deciding to leave and open our Bed and Breakfast.

Wishing you both many fond memories of your Costa Rica vacation will keep you warm to the end of Canadian Winter and into Spring.

Mike and Paul were wonderful hosts! They are very laid back, accomidating, and had good advice to make traveling easier. Breakfast was better than we could've ever expected, filled with large portions of traditional dishes & homemade bread. The location is safe & secluded. Mike & Paul have created an wonderful Costa Rican oasis right in their back yard with a pool surrounded by local vegitation, outdoor kitchen & sitting space. I would recommend that anyone visting Manuel Antonio stay in this cozy & quaint B & B.

Thanks Mike & Paul!!!! We'll be back
