“Great hotel and staff”
Reviewed March 20, 2009

Eleven us stayed at this hotel for five nights and had a wonderful time. The staff and owner were personal and very accommodating to our needs. This small boutique hotel gives a personal, private secure feeling while staying there. The garden is beautiful and interesting with many common house plants that you may be used to seeing inside at home as well as with many exotic plants . The adjacent infinity style pool with bar service was great and we really enjoyed having a convenient delicious breakfast here every morning. While in the area, we saw sloths, kinkajous, monkeys, colorful birds and lots of butterflies and insects. There are many local tours and restaurants that the staff can recommend or help make arrangements for you. The local bus and taxi service is inexpensive and convenient to the wonderful beaches a short ride away. We highly recommend staying at The Falls and would stay here the next time we visit Manuel Antonio.

We stayed at three different hotels during our vacation in Costa Rica and The Falls was our favorite by far. The atmosphere at The Falls was informal, relaxed and comfortable, different from any other place I have ever stayed at! The location of The Falls couldn’t be better, as it is in the center of all the action and restaurants in the area.

The grounds are beautiful and very quiet; the only things that woke us up were geckos and birds outside of our room! Our room was lovely and private. Unfortunately, we did not spend a lot of time on the grounds or in our room, as we wanted to see and experience all the area had to offer!

The front desk employees, Johanna and Henry, were extremely helpful in booking a tour for us as well as accommodating our other needs. Oscar, the bartender, is an excellent, friendly, helpful person to talk to about area restaurants and things to do, as well as to get to know as a person. He also makes a spectacular BBC!! The bar area near the pool served as a semi-gathering place to meet other guests and get a drink before or after dinner. We met several other couples and individuals during our stay, aged approximately 25-60, all in Costa Rica on vacation. The community feel is what made The Falls stand out from the other places we stayed.

If (hopefully when!) we ever go back to the Manuel Antonio area, we will definitely stay at The Falls!

We loved this hotel. It was lush, relaxing and a beautiful haven in a gorgeous tropical garden. The staff are attentive, friendly and informative without being pushy, (they don't hassle you even if you lie in. They just seem to know when you go in and out). The bar (headed up by oscar) is excellent and our room was always clean and fresh no matter what hour of the day we got back.

I would recommend this hotel if you want a place to get away to, escape the pressures, just relax. If you want nightlife you can have that too. This hotel is close to some of the best restaurants and bars in manual antonio. Try barba roja if you want some laid back cocktail sunsets with good food and a lively vibe; el avion for lunch and and a breathtaking view across the bay; ronnys place if you would like some tico hospitality and a great sunset ( but order a cab, the roads are bad), cafe agua azul if you would like some hot fusion cuisine in a great setting; kapi kapi for a more formal dinner, gorgeous food and great service.

And on top of all that that the beach is only 10 mins away, where monkeys will charm you and then steal your wallet, where humming birds zoom past, where parrkeets frolic in the trees ahead, and iguanas will stroll by and survey casually you as you bathe.

Plus you can paraglide if you want to.

There is no place like this.
