“Save your money and stay somewhere else!”
Reviewed October 8, 2010

This hotel is in a serious need of updating, the rooms are tiny, smelly, buggy and damp. The beds are uncomfortable and the pillows flat!. The window air conditioner is right at the bed level so it blows right on you.The shower stall had a broken area near the bottom and could easily cut you. We found out from the one other guest staying there at the same time that it's used mostly by fishermen. The location isn't great either, not within walking distance of anything. There was a public bus stop at the street entrance however. I can't even give the breakfast a decent rating. Do yourself a favor and don't stay here. Manuel Antonio has much to offer but this hotel isn't the place to enjoy it.

I love this place. The owner is charming, the room was extremely clean, the facilities lovely, the food was great. I am NOT comparing this to a 5 star facility. HOWEVER, for a relatively modest place, it was great. It had a nice pool and air conditioning, which appearantly isn't a standard feature in CR (and no, it was not an old unit as one reviewer indicated. It appeared to be fairly new.) There was a nice balcony overlooking the forest, and a nice tiled bathroom and shower. There was a hair dryer, and the pillows and sheets seemed fine to me. (They were NOT 600 thread count, nor were the pillows fluffy down. There was no duvet which I would have expected for $200 a night. It's not a down/duvet kind of a place... I'm not sure what the people who complained were expecting for a $55 room, but I was perfectly satisfied. I had a wonderful grilled fish dinner for $10, and my daughter had a shrimp and pasta dish for $15 or so with the biggest shrimp I have ever seen in my life. I watched the cook prepare it and everything was fresh. This place was a great value for the money. I will definitely come again.

Just returned from a wonderful trip to Costa Rica with my husband and friends. Our least favorite hotel was Tres Banderas. The owner, Andy, was not in a good mood when we were there. The rooms need new mattresses, sheets, pillows, bedspreads, and the air conditioners have to be over 15 years old. We found a few las cucarachas wandering around the floor. Loved the private balconies in the back, but this hotel has seen better days. Andy might consider investing some money into making some much-needed improvements.

This hotel provides bare bone service. Stay there only if you need a bed and bathroom. It is midway between the beach and town. The only good thing about this hotel is it is close to a good restaurant Mar Luna which is within walking distance.

The hotel has great balconies and the open kitchen prepares delicious food and it is fun to see the chefs preparing everything fresh. The owner is a tough Polish gentleman and a great conversationalist. We had completely differnt views on politics and most of the world but he was funny and helpful . I really liked him. Andy if you are reading this, it is the Texas that likes Obama. We had a great stay.
