“Great Place to Stay!!”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

We actually stayed here for our Honeymoon in March of 2009 and had a wonderful time! The staff was EXCEPTIONAL and our accommodations were very comfortable! The pool is a great place to relax and watch the monkeys and the bats at dusk. You will NOT be disappointed staying here! Sure, you can stay in a fancy schmancy resort, but why did you come to Costa Rica? Experience the community and enjoy the local experience!

Room Tip: We stayed in the main building, but I would love to request on of the private cabanas in the future!

Our stay at Byblos was top notch. Everything from booking to check out went smooth as could be. Great location, accommodations, and service. I would highly recommend Byblos to anyone traveling to Manuel Antonio, and certainly plan on returning there myself.

The staff and lodging facilities were spectacular. The food in the Pizzeria was very good -from breakfast to dinner- every meal was great! Need to schedule an excursion - the reception staff can make all that happen - need transfer transportation - yep- reception can do that too! Melissa is the best! Thank you for a wonderful weeks stay!

The property hasn't seen a repair man, a coat of paint, a real gardener who knows what a weed is or a waiter that likes his job in what seems like a very long time. The problems appear to be on going. The casino looked like a prison gym. However, that didn't seem to bother the hookers that worked the sad sports bar at night. That also didn't bother the waiter (with glasses) who monitored everyone else's job but his own. We called this place Bilbo Baggins Inn, because we felt like we were in middle earth. The description on Trip Advisor is false. Luxury orthopedic beds?! In what year?! Hi end sheets?! Trip advisor gave this place a travel award last year. What happened? There are three faded stars on the sign. They should erase two of them. If it wasn't for the monkey's around the pool this place would be on the last stop before...I think you get the picture.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view of the ocean. You wont feel so depressed.

Booked the hotel for two nights. During first night got bitten by a cockroach (which I killed in my bed !) and did my best to try to get out as early as I could. Was in the reception 6 AM Had huge problems in talking to the hotel about this, had to ask for the manager several times, and after third attempt I finally got them to agree to give me the money back.

Room was not very clean (booked even with ocean view, but view was to the ocean over a parking lot and cables... Air-condition in the room was so dirty so it was yellow/brown.

Location : a long walk from the park and beach. I asked locals for help and moved to a MUCH better hotel (and cheaper) right on the beach side !

Not recommendable !

We have seen howler monkeys, white face monkeys, squirrel monkeys right outside our lovely, air conditioned room. It is just steps away from many pleasant restaurants and gift shops and has two restaurants on premises. Nice place as long as lots of steps are not an issue. There's no elevator, sadly.

The personnel at this hotel were awesome, made some great friends. Lots of monkeys and birds. There are several great restaurants around, the seafood is delicious! Poolside breakfast is nice. The way this hotel is layed out offered lots of privacy, it was hard to tell that they were full. One warning - lots of steps.

Room Tip: Definitely get a bungalow,they are all great with covered porches.
