There's so many places to stay in Manuel Antonio that are better than this place. For the price, I expected the place to be better. Place looks run down. Needs remodeling, the drains in the shower and toilets were bad. The A/C unit was pretty much on the floor. Poor location for that. Only good thing was the wild life.... More

We stayed at this hotel for the last 3 days of our 10-day Gate 1 Travel tour of San Jose, Arenal Volcano, Monteverde and Manuel Antonio. It is a short drive down the hill to the beach and the national park nearby. However, I was truly amazed at all the wildlife in and around the forest surrounding the hotel pool.... More

Byblos is a perfect place to stay if you LOVE MONKEYS! (and we do) The property is quaintly nestled in on the main road to the beach. We walked each day, but for those that need transportation there are multitudes of taxis as well as the local bus. Food, drink, day and night life are all around. If you feel... More

Staff was accommodating. Room was adequate and clean. Pool and restaurant area were great. The wildlife we saw included three types of monkeys, a sloth, Toucans. More than we saw in Manual Antonio National Park. Breakfast choices were fairly extensive

We stayed here for 2 nights with a group tour! This hotel has 2 restaurants and a beautiful pool (which is great when the weather is crazy humid). The hotel is next to a reserve where you can see lots of wildlife. We saw monkeys, iguanas, and birds! A quick bus ride to Manuel Antonio where you can enjoy the... More

We spent a week at Byblos Resort in bungalow 4. The wildlife we saw was amazing. From our deck and around the pool we saw sloths, white faced capuchins, howler monkeys, agoutis, lizards, and more. It was fun to hear the howlers over our bungalow starting a howl early morning, and one day we spent hours watching a young sloth... More

At first, this hotel was questionnable! After being there a few days, it grew on me! It most definitely needs updating! The rooms were clean, beds comfortable enough, but the pillows were lumpy, and the decor straight out of the 80's!! We had a small deck, but its too hot/humid, even at night, to enjoy the partial ocean view-through multiple... More

We decided we really like this place the first afternoon at the pool, when the very cute white faced monkies started playing around the chairs and railings, even dipping fingers in the water. (They won't let you get too close, nor should you, of course.) The hotel grounds are situated in a hilly setting, like much of MA. So there... More

This is a great spot for late night. There is a good mix of locals and tourists. Food we had wasn't great, but the drinks are delicious. Also, awesome bartenders, super friendly and very inviting. They have a ladies night where vodka and rum drinks are free
