We are a laid back family and were here 10 years ago and loved it. Now, it's very fancy with prices to match. The food was good, but not enough so to match the price. The service however was excellent.

This used to be a charming, if not buggy, little place in the jungle with good food. Now it looks like California...all sleek with a very distant view and mega condos (so ugly) behind it...but the worst part was a very pungent and awful smell and we could not find out what it was...cleaning stuff or what? We should have left as it was so strong but we had lunch...very average food...wrong charges on bill and staff frankly did not want to fix it. We left fairly quickly as this place gets a zero from me ...really had considered Los Altos for a stay and wow so glad we did not stay in this monster...the photos are so different than the reality.

We came to the restaurant because it was located in our resort. Our server was Georcy and he was absolutely the best waiter on the planet.

The first thing he did was ask me and my boyfriend our names and introduced himself. For the remainder of the trip, he only addresses us by our first names and made sure to shake our hands each time that he saw us.

The food at Karolas is REALLY fresh. In fact, the hotel leads a fishing expedition and if you give the restaurant what you caught, they will be happy to make your fish however you'd like with delicious salad, rice and sauces.

If you're in the Manuel Antonio area, definitely check out this place!!!

My husband ordered room service (Karolas Burger) to be delivered to our room at the Los Altos hotel. As he was biting into half of the burger, there was a piece of parchment paper stuck in between the cheese and tomato!! Although the restaurant manager Jessica was quick to waive all the charges, this is unacceptable!!! Being said that, the breakfast that is included in the hotel room rate has been adequate. Service is good as well.

Went to this place by mistake on our first night in MA while looking for Agua Azul...so glad we did. Turned out to be one of the best meals we had in MA. Delicious mahi mahi, and great margaritas--2 for 1 during happy hour. Beautful sunset view. Looks fancy, but prices were comparable to most other places. Also very good service.
