We went to Costa Rica during the "rainy season" and the hotel was almost vacant. But, everyone on the staff went about their jobs as if the hotel was full of guests. It was clean, friendly and professional and we had an amazing view of Manuel Antonio National Park and the beach. The restaurant was excellent. No complaints!

Just returned from my trip to Costa Rica. I stayed at the Hotel San Bada which is located next to Manuel Antonio National Park. The hotel is a short walk to town and a public beach. The staff at the hotel was excellent. They were eager to make my stay a positive experience. Breakfast and dinner were very good. There... More

My husband and I went for our honeymoon during rainy season and we loved it. It is close to the beach and right next to the National Park. The staff was amazing. Especially Alejandro! The room was very nice and the view was perfect.

Loved that the location was right next to the entrance to Manuel Antonio park. Rooms were nice, and view was good. Water pressure was a bit low in the tub, but shower was fine. A bit musty in the room, but next time I would just run the AC more to reduce that.

Good aircon, decent rooms although lights not all working, good bathroom, Ok shower pressure, reasonable breakfast, pleasant enough staff trying hard (especially in presenting towels and trying to sell you an activity) expensive food but not bad, (try the backpackers down the road). Location is great for the park and beach but also traps you in Man Ant where food... More

Hotel San Bada is Seventh Heaven!!! What a Superb location! It is right at the entrance to Manuel Antonio National Park. You can even buy tickets to the park at the front desk; it is so convenient.

We spent one night here. The location is great. Rooms were nice and meals were okay. From the roof top bar you have a good view of the coast and we watched a spider monkey and iguana feeding in the tree top close to the bar. The Manuel Antonio National Park entrance is directly in front of the hotel. So,... More

My husband and I stayed here 2 nights. You couldn't ask for a better location for the beach (3 minute walk), and the National Park was right next door. We loved hearing the howler monkeys right outside our hotel room. We were even upgraded for free! The fresh fruit , juices, beans, eggs, pancakes, etc. were especially helpful for a... More

We stayed here for 7 days, 6 nights. The hotel is 1 meter from the entrance of the parc and that is so fantastic. Not only we were the first visitors at 7.25. But also the monkeys are in the trees next to the pool in the afternoon. A small renovation to the rooms, especially the bathroom, would be a... More
