We had a fantastic time at Hotel Costa Verde. The hotel was well situated into the lush, tropical environment. We stayed in a studio plus room in the B complex (with a/c) and had the most amazing view. Of the three restaurants at the hotel, we most enjoyed Anaconda, which had great views and a nice atmosphere for our daily breakfast. We did wish that breakfast would have been included. The rooms were rustic, but clean and spacious. We did not encounter any major bug problem, although we did see a few small ants. The reception was friendly and helpful in setting up tours. We were extremely happy with the ATV tour and the Canopy Tour. I would not, however, recommend a snorkeling/dolphin watching tour if you go during the months of June/July. Although we should have done more research on our own before booking, we felt that that front desk staff member who helped us set up the tour should have informed us that the conditions for both of these activities was not good due to merky water from the rain run off and strong currents (which the dolphins do not like). This seemed to be a well known fact amongst other locals that we spoke to. The reception attendant strongly recommended a particular company, which in hindsight, he may have been looking out for a friend or relative who ran that tour. Overall the Manuel Antonio area was great--very beautiful and filled with wildlife. We found the Ticos to be very friendly and helpful, however, on a few occassions we unfortunately aware of the fact that they were looking to make as much money off of the tourists as possible. The weather was consistent--sun in the morning, rain in the late afternoon, and clear, humid nights. We found that the rain often added to the excitment of the activities we were doing. Considering we were in the rainforest, we did not mind the rain. We saw monkeys from our balcony on 2 occassions. Hearing/seeing the howler monkeys from the room was a great time. We would definitely recommend this hotel.
