“Very good inexpensive option in Manuel Antonio”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

Very nice and clean hotel. Initially I was suppose to stay at a rented top floor of a house down the street, but after learning it did not have A/C, was not quiet (on a noisy street) and was not clean, I decided to cancel and make other arrangements. I looked into Flor Blanca Hotel which was nearby. Staff is very welcoming. Rooms have a good sized fridge, television, very good A/C and a ceiling fan, too. The premises always felt safe and secure as the property has surveillance and 24 hrs reception. Pool was literally 5 feet from my door and two small grocery stores on either side of the property not even 2 minutes either way walking...For $65 a night during high season right in the heart of Manuel Antonio, you cannot go wrong and was generally pleased.

You get what you pay for here, the hotel is nice and clean, the rooms have the facilities you need> air conditioning, television, fridge. Breakfast is included. It is not too far from the beach, nor is it close, however there is a good bus service and there is a stop very close to the hotel. Places to eat close by are not fantastic however, you have to go a bit further down the hill for decent restaurants, but it's all very functional. If you've on a budget, this place is fine.

Room Tip: Ask for an upstairs room, I was next to the pool/laundry area, I listened to school band practice, s...

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

It's about 3.5 out of 5, but not a 4. If you are looking for a nice, clean room with a good AC, this place definitely does it. Staff is friendly and you get breakfast with the room (although that seems to be the practice in most lodgings in Costa Rica and most of the other places offers fruits as a given, while they didn't). However, it is not close to the beach and unlike most of the other places, they are less helpful in helping to book tours/activities, which means one has to go into the beach area in order to do so. The walk to the park from the place is ~35min, not the 20min that the staff would tell you...be careful in planning for park tours. The cab costs ~$5 from the beach. There is a supermarket and some eateries very close by, but the area is also quite dirty with feces on a few spots on the sidewalk. The school right next to it meant band practice in the early evening...it was loud and they sounded quite bad unfortunately. So, depends on how much price matters to you when weighed against these other factors mentioned...

Hotel Flor Blanca was a nice play to stay. One of the best things was that they had a good AC system in the room, that was important because it was super hot and humid there during our stay. The rooms are pretty nice with a little fridge and tv and little table. The hotel also has a pool for use. It is located close to lots of good restaurants. Up the hill from the beach but the bus stops basically right out front. The only downside was that it wasn't as good about helping book things as other places we stayed but that isn't super important in Manuel Antonio. I would recommend it if you are looking for a small hotel.

Clean, comfortable, quiet, inexpensive and conveniently located. Daniel -- the manager -- is professional, courteous, friendly and generous; he made my companions and I feel at home and welcome all the time. I highly recommend this establishment.

I originally posted the review under Flor Tica Hotel - I believe they're the same place as another reviewer mentioned but reviewers seem to be posting on this site more so - anyways we stayed here for 2 nights as we wanted to visit the park and my neice knows the lovely owners of this hostel - It was simple but with all the basics - TV worked fine; had our own room including bathroom; frig; shelves; ceiling fan and 3 clean, comfortable beds (there were 3 of us in a good sized room) - everything was clean, clean, clean and fresh smelling - breakfast included was simple yet delicious and satisfying; there is also a nice clean pool area. Price was VERY reasonable and I would definitely stay again. Bus stop just up the street; grocery store just down the street - Manuel Antonio is lovely - this place is great for your basics - nothing fancy but nice and I bet it's at least twice as clean as your fancier hotels - Come and See! Mucho Gracias again to the wonderful owners for a memorable stay!

Room Tip: If you need anything just ask the owners at the front desk - they are very helpful and friendly!
