everything just perfect - a paradise in Tortuguero. Excellent room, food, service and tourguide. Also very good transfer from and to San José. We recommend Manatus Hotel to all our friends and our network in the travel agencies.

Excellent accomodation, food, service and wildlife guides in a wonderful location. the rooms facing the river, as ours was, we imagine are much favoured. we were amazed to see such a huge variety of bird life, even in the town.

We spent two nights in Manatus Hotel in Totuguero. The Hotel is quiet, very silent with beautiful gardens and trees, very well located to visit Tortuguero parc, the staff and the guides nice and helpfull, the rooms very confortable and the Cook excellent.
