Jungle Beach Hotel at Manuel Antonio
Ranked #1 of 19 Manuel Antonio B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Jungle Beach was the fourth place we stayed at during our trip to Costa Rica and it was absolutely lovely! The staff was helpful and gave us directions to a great pizza place in the village, the room was incredibly large and clean, shower was excellent, breakfast was light but filling enough to make it until lunch and the hotel is literally 5 minutes to the beach. It was the perfect place to end our trip...I wish we could have stayed longer. A note for those who like to sleep in - the howler monkeys will definitely make sure you are up bright and early :) I almost didn't book this place because of the website (small pictures, not many of them), but I am so happy we did. Their website does not do this place justice!

The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Also, the rooms are large, clean, and have air-conditioning. The breakfast in the morning is simple, but delicious. They also have howler monkeys and white-faced monkeys almost every morning, which is awesome for nature-lovers. Would definitely stay here again.

I recently booked a last minute trip to Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica during the holiday season. A lot of hotels were already booked but I found the Jungle Beach Hotel, read the reviews and booked a room.

First off, all the positive reviews below are absolutely true. There's no gimmick. Jungle Beach is a gorgeous, big-sized room, hotel with stunning views of The Jungle and terraces that make you want to sit and relax all day long.

I was able to make friends throughout my trip and got a look at some of the more pricey hotels in the area. In all honesty, Jungle Beach rooms are bigger, cheaper and outfit with fridge, wi-fi, AC and a terrific shower. I couldn't have been happier making Jungle Beach my hotel. The price is magnificent and you get much more than you'd expect for paying what you do. Plus, the hotel is literally up the street from the beach and a stone's throw from Manuel Antonio village where you can eat and drink at all hours. The Park entrance is all but a 10min walk.

Jungle Beach is ideal!

Room Tip: Room number 6 has a killer view and is tucked away nicely!

Really clean rooms, with fridge, TV, wi-fi, and beautiful murals painted on the walls. There were monkeys everywhere outside! We also saw a sloth right across the street from the hotel. It was like a 5 minute walk to the beach, very convenient. For the price, we thought it was perfect! I guess the only bad thing is that you hear the howler monkeys start their crazy noises like at 3 or 4 AM! But I think that's part of the experience :)

Stayed for three nights and found this Hotel to be affordable, clean and close to main beach. Had a private double bed room for 65/night. Rooms have AC, TV, fridge, and wifi is strong. Showerhead had strong hot water. Room was also pretty large.
Staff is very friendly and manager went above and beyond to help us book tours.
Free breakfast consists of toast, fruits, pastries, juice, coffee and tea. Light but decent.
My only complaint is that we stayed on the first floor and the cielings are thin. There is so much loud thumping and noise from upstairs at 7 in the mornings. Walls are also thin and can hear everything outside.
Don't come here in November. Wait for dry season in December and January. It rained most days and stayed in most afternoons.
Recommend eating Sancho's (Mexican) and Ngo (Chinese) and El sol (Costa Rican).

For a great price my sister and I had two clean beds, delicious breakfast and a very helpful staff! The best part of this hotel, however, was its proximity to the beach. It is just a two minute walk from the beautiful coast line. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are staying in Manuel Antonio.

I stayed two nights at Jungle Beach Hotel while doing some work in the area after hearing about them from some friends. The room was spacious, bathroom totally remodeled, air conditioning, cable TV, WIFI, coffee available early, great selection of Continental breakfast items, quiet (even though it's near the road), safe in-room, clean and super friendly staff. Kathy the manager was a doll and the front desk was super accommodating. I would highly recommend this hotel for location and everything I mentioned above. This is going to be one of the busiest hotels in MA in no time. You better book early if you plan on traveling in the high season. Did I mention the monkeys on the balcony in the AM? Or the Howlers in the AM?

Room Tip: I had room #3 - it was perfect.
