We chose to try this hotel because of the location and the value and what a treat. We wanted to have access to Manuel Antonio and Jaco, have a great beach, a pool, a place to rest and recooperate after our adventures and a restaurant on site...here we got it all. We were on the great surfer beach every day, it was just a few steps away. The surfing was great to watch, the swimming was fantastic and it was never crowded. Our room had two queen size beds, a great bathroom and everything was so clean. After our busy days we callapsed into bed and slept like babies. The food was just average (try the Palm salad) but who cares when everything else was fabulous. The staff were wonderful, especially the manager, Carlos....so helpful and kind, we would definitely go back.
