This hotel is literally 200 feet from Manuel Antonio Park entrance, and 300 feet the other direction from the beach (off of the main street). The price is one of the lowest in the area, and the location CANNOT BE BEAT. We arrived at night and there were ants all over the shower. This is probably a common problem since it's a tropical climate, and the bathroom window is only a screen. The bathroom was sprayed and problem resolved. There were two bars of soap, and no SHAMPOO. I asked the desk if this was an error, and he said that shampoo was not included. So, at least be aware of both good and bad before you book it. Priced fairly (comparable with some other smaller hotels in the area) and location is phenominal. No pool.
