Great hotel! Has everything you need to enjoy the Manuel Antonio area including Quepos. Free shuttle to local attractions. Lots of wildlife on property, our balcony presented us with Toucans, Sloths and howler monkeys daily. Service in the room was impeccable. Chocolates (and more fresh towels if needed) offered every night. Will go back :-)

We stayed here in July and had a wonderful time and wonderful stay. Hotel staff went out of their way to be helpful. My 13-year old grandson loved the pools and we all enjoyed the food. Location is close to other restaurants and activities as well (parasailing, wave-runners ...). Would absolutely stay again and again. Thank you!

We stayed at this hotel for 6 nights at the end of a tour of Costa Rica. The staff were very helpful and friendly who couldn't do enough for you.

Isolated at the end of a peninsula, but still only 10 to 15 minutes to the national park, this is a clean resort, with helpful staff. The restaurant if good, but plenty of excellent restaurants within a 10 minutes drive. Plenty of activities (Zip Lining, river rafting) where the companies will pick you up. The beach is about a 10... More

I have visited this hotel twice this year. For a family the facilities are great, my kids enjoy the pool and the kids room. The restaurant food and service is remarkable. There is a beach very close to the hotel and Manuel Antonio Park which is a must. I m really satisfied and for sure we will come back soon.
