“So fantastic!”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

My husband and I stayed here in February 2013 and we absolutely loved it! It is an quiet oasis in Manual Antonio, yet close to everything. The rooms are minimalist, yet lovely and have everything you need. Initially we were concerned about noise as we had a room very close to the restaurant, but commented on how quiet is was despite our proximity. The food in the restaurant is delicious and you must order the fries - the best around! Many other restaurants in walking distance, but, truly, The Falls is one of the best places to eat. Several days we hopped on the bus to head to the beach. The local bus stop is steps away and is (I think) 25 cents/person one way. A deal! The beach is gorgeous and we were some of the only people there! We also did used the ziplining company that is associated with the falls - DO IT!! They have the longest zip line in Central America and the second longest in the world. We had such fun and safety is their #1 priority! Loved everything about The Falls and would not hesitate to return!

We stayed here for five nights at the end of May 2013. Each room has a lot of privacy. We really liked the private front porch. We got to watch the monkeys from our room. The gardens were beautiful. The room itself was beautiful with a very large shower. El Avion Restaurant is across the street and we had an excellent meal and service there. The daily breakfast at the property was good, but we wished there was more variety. Loved the gardens and pool area. Manuel Antonio Beach about one mile away and there's a daily rate per person to visit (closed Mondays). The main town was 7 km the other direction. The nicer area and restaurants were in the Manuel Antonio area. It would be better to take the bus or a taxi if you want to spend time in this area because finding parking can be difficult.

We found everything at this small hotel lovely. The rooms, the pool and gardens, the nice owners, the food, the bar man, the location everything.

There was no negatives at all, perfect, perfect, perfect. After going to look and have a drink at all the hotels that I was interested in Manuel, many were very very nice but I was very happy we picked The Falls. We stayed in a garden room family room. Loved the visiting wildlife that came to visit many times. Very good resturants in short walking distance, The Blue something up the road was totally outstanding and very highly recommend, Also loved the Wildlife place opposite Si Como?.

Room Tip: Ours was perfect for us, but stairs to it which was above resturant might no be suitable for old peo...

The Falls was even better than I expected. It was an oasis to us. The room was very nice and we loved the wide porch and furniture from where we could observe the flora & fauna & wildlife too!
After being out during the day we loved returning to the Falls & enjoyed eating in the restaurant that was moderately priced and delicious; very relaxing. We highly recommend it!

My husband and I spent 10 days at The Falls and had a wonderful experience. The lush grounds make you feel like you are in the middle of the rain forest, complete with monkeys, birds and lizards. We stayed in one of the standard rooms and it was perfect. Very clean and modern. The Falls is within walking distance to many other restaurants and shops, but we found the restaurant at the hotel to be one of favorites.
The walk to the beach is about a mile, you may want to take the bus back as it is uphill.
The beaches and the park at Manuel Antonio are gorgeous.
We were very happy that we chose to stay at The Falls and did not want to leave. What really impressed us about this place was the staff. Everyone was extremely helpful and really went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. Hello to Richardo, Luis and Andres, thanks for making our stay memorable!

Located right on the main road of Manuel Antonio, the Falls Resort is a gem of a place. Our room was facing the street but there were no noise issues with the traffic. The grounds are gorgeous with lush gardens, a small but nice pool, and a great open-air restaurant overlooking it all. Birds and other animals are usually around to heighten the ambience. The staff was very friendly and helpful too. Since it's on the main road, it's easy to get around by taxi, bus, and you're within easy walking distance of numerous restaurants too. I really couldn't ask for anything more while I was in Manuel Antonio.

Our stay at The Falls at Manuel Antonio was very nice. It is full of lush gardens which really made it what it was. The room was spacious and clean. The service was great. The breakfast was excellent, with a self serve of fruits and breads, cereals, coffee, tea, etc, plus you order three items off the breakfast menu. Nice pool. They also loan out towels for the beach, and also have a laundry service. The disappointment for me was that there was no actual waterfalls nearby (there was a miniature one on the property), and I was told by the staff that it was really a 40 minute drive to get to the waterfalls. I was happy with our stay here and would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: standard room was quiet, but for the sounds of nature, and was surrounded by greenery and had a comf...
