We have traveled through Manuel Antonio several times and the views here were spectacular, especially from the pool! The hotel itself isn't the best in the area by any means. The food is average and service can be slow (eat elsewhere!) Also, although we got a room upgrade from the standard room it was still very basic and felt a bit old, and could use an update. It is in a good location and there are shuttles to the public beach, you can also walk down to the beach if you don't mind a hike. There wasn't as much wildlife around the hotel as we had seen in other places (when we stayed at the El Parador we saw monkeys and iguanas all the time). The gift shop is nice, we went in our last day and found some interesting and unique gifts. If you are a family I would go elsewhere for better value and if you are a couple with a large budget, there are newer, more romantic places to stay.
