Great resort! Great location. Right next to the national park. Great staff! Good breakfast. The rooms are very roomy. My friends are a family of five and had a rollaway bed added to the room and still had plenty of room. Beach is right there through a convenient tunnel. Great food at the Congo restaurant! Great pool kids had a...

We finished our 12 day trip here and it was a great spot. All rooms have a pacific view out the balcony, and a rain forest view out the room door. There is a rooftop bar which offers great sunset views. It was under construction/renovation in November, but was still great. The pool area is very nice with a swim...

Just steps away from Manuel Antonio NP entrance. The rooftop bar has excellent drinks and views. Rooms were clean and all Had balconies. The food at the restaurant was good. Very close to other shops and restaurants.

Great location near the park and the beach. Friendly and helpful staff. Stunning view on both the park and the sea from the Terrace at the top. The gym would need some love (a/c not working; treadmill not always working; very dirty windows) though.

Everything about Hotel San Bada is fabulous. We saved the best for last in our 12 day trip. Our three nights here were so great that my family wished we could have just been here the whole time.

You can't find a better location for visiting the Manuel Antonio National Park. It is just steps away from entrance gate. Our room was large with two beds, but the bed and linens were musty smelling and unpleasant. The bath had a large shower, vessel sink , plenty of towels and had recently been updated . The hotel has only...

My family spent the 2017 new years' eve at San Bada hotel. The hotel is at a great location of being at the gate of Manuel Antonio National Park. We actually saved on one of nature tours in the park by not requiring tour shuttle drop off and pickup. The facility is of relatively good condition. Crew responded rapidly when...

I was amazed with this hotel from the moment I saw it. The location practically within the national park was unbelievable. The pools were beautiful and the sound of their waterfalls was soothing. The staff experience was great, beginning with Francisco who found me a room due to a recent cancellation. And this was not your average room, he upgraded...
