Manatus is one of the best hotels in Tortuguero, with air condition. This is what gives the hotel its major attraction, having air conditioning in such an area is great comfort, as it reduces mosquitoes and insects from entering the room. Throughout my stay i found very few insects in the room, which was a great comfort. It has impeccable service though and very private, as we were 11 of us and there was only 1 more couple, so it was very private and we were vegetarian, so they changed slight things in the menu for us. Gave us brilliant service, did what we wanted and even let someone from our group cook in their kitchen. Mothers day was at a time and they got the mothers breakfast in bed with a very special breakfast. It has a great forest trail from inside the hotel itself, where you can see different types of frogs and insects.
It is a very safe resort and you have to go there by boat. The guided tour to the rivers helps to see many different types of beautiful birds and we also saw a cayman and a great number of monkeys, iguanas and lizards. They also offer free kayaking.
We saw some toucans, monkeys and Iguanas in the hotel too. If you request them they take you to a hotel just opposite this one to see the red eyed tree frog, which is a must. One thing to keep in mind though is that to get around you need to ask the hotel to call for a cab (a speed boat) as all the places are islands.
This hotel has great service, great accommodation, a lot of fun and a very comfortable stay.
