The hotel is dated.. Unlike most hotels, there were no amenities (soap, shampoo, etc) in the room. Air conditioning in our room was an antique and noisy. It sounded like an engine running right next to our room. Faucets were 'loose' that the whole set rotates with the handle. We never had 'clean' towels that were free from dirts or embeded dirty marks. Cottage layouts were confusing. There were many pools on the property. There are not clean. We never felt that we had a clear view of the pool bottom. We had a room that is all the way in the back. After staying for three days, our family still could not get to our room/cottage in one attempt.
There is no wifi in the room. Wifi is only available at the restaurant and at the front office. Both are open air structures. Mosiquitos had a great time feeding on me when I had to get on internet in the evening. It was not pleasant. Both restaurant and front office close at 10PM. If wifi router got into trouble, wifi service is gone.
Grounds were pretty. Many flowere and colorful variated plants. It is very pleasant to walk around the property. We saw monkeys and other additional wild lifes.
Restaurant wise, I would recommend the restaurant "El Avion" across the street. We had a good meal in Manuel Antonio area there. I will definitely recommend against going 'Cate Negro" on the property. Customers voted them out. We ate there one night. Food was below expectation. We were the only customers from 7 to 8:30PM. Another night, they had no customer.for the period I used wifi at the "Cate Negro".
