We didn’t stay at Costa Linda, but at Cabinas Espadilla right across the street. We were there for five nights and had dinner every day at the Costa Linda’s restaurant! We tried the plato tipico with fish, chicken and beef, the chicken fajitas, the hamburger, spaghetti carbonara and vegetarian spaghetti – all very good and very reasonably priced. The service...

My boyfriend and I came here not once, but TWICE in 2 days (once for dinner, once for lunch). We shared the carbonara pasta which was FANTASTIC and two margaritas (yummy ones!) and a 10% tip (10% had already been included), all for 22 bucks. Service was very friendly and attentive.

This hostel was cheap and had a restaurant attached which has amazing food and drinks. 4 minute walk from the beach. My room was a single, and was pretty much a bed in a box with a ceiling fan, but I wasn't there for a fancy room! Definitely recommend if you are just looking for a bed.

It's cash only! I had a great burger and salad for an exceptional price. I loved the 1980s music that happened to be playing. It was an ok place to eat solo as other travelers were alone as well- the bar was also fully stocked. It's on the road to the Parque, so an easy place to stop in for... More

We stayed for 2 nights and the place was perfect. 5 minute walk to the beach and 5/7 walk to the amazing Manuel Antonio national park. Cheap at $10 s night, great colourful communal bathrooms, and the best restaurant in town... The place was packed both nights and again for lunch and breakfast..... OH the breakfast! Pancakes, fresh fruit, Gallo... More

Food was nothing special, but what I really disliked was the Margarita thar was awful. 2000 clones for it. Prices are not high but not low also. Close to the park entrance. Smoothie was good. Avoid coktails.

We stayed in Manuel Antonio for 6 nights and ate here 4 times! The quantity and quality were very good. The service was quick & efficient. No language problems. Costa Rica has been much more expensive than we thought, the Canadian $ doesn't do well here now, but you can still eat well at this spot and not empty your... More

I've stayed here a few times over the years and each time the staff has been very friendly and helpful. Great food at the hostel restaurant, as well. The location is great and close to everything in the area. I would definitely stay here again.

This was an inexpensive place especially compared with other options in Manuel Antonio. Its location is excellent, short stroll to the beach and the entrance to the national park. The room was a big size, clean and nice. Shared bathrooms were always clean, no complaints. Above my expectations, great budget option. Also has a couple of resident iguanas and you... More

The food is amazing!!!!!!!! And so cheap for a tourists place like Mauel Antonio! The Place is nice if you don't need any luxus in your vacation. The rooms, especially the shared bathroom could be cleaner. But if you don't care about that too much you will love this place. Nice atmosphere. Really feel like you are inthe middle of... More
