We stayed here for 3 nights. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect for the beach and the national park, plus the bus stop is at the end of the street. We had been traveling for several days so it was great that they offered laundry services. Monkeys come in the afternoon, ironically during happy hour. Best pina coladas and recommend the Manuel Antonio chicken entree for dinner.

If you're visiting Manuel Antonio National Park, this hotel is perfectly situated. It's a two-minute walk to the beach and several restaurants one way, and less than a five-minute walk to the park entrance the other way. The room was comfortable with a powerful AC unit, if you want it. It offers a solid breakfast buffet, and they keep the bird feeder well supplied with fruit to attract colorful visitors. The desk staff speaks good English and were helpful with booking tours.

I stayed in this hotel with my girlfriend while we were visiting Manuel Antonio. The hotel was well-situated near both the national park and the beach. The room was clean and well-maintained and the building had great views of the forest nearby. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful and the guy at the front desk (whose name I unfortunately do not remember) was helpful and very serious. The only slight problem I can think of is the peculiar windows, which do not fully close for some odd reason. Still, everything else from the pool to the balcony was extremely pleasant.

Beautiful setting with easy access to Manuel Antonio National Park, the beach, and the Quepos bus. Far enough from the noise of the town. Close enough to the jungle to hear and see the birds and monkeys which came up onto the open-air common room. Great pool and access to showers/bathroom when not in your room. Staff accommodating to our needs & helpful but not overly friendly. My only real complaint is the quality of the mattresses. The food and bar service was great. Would definitely go back and stay at Hotel Villabosque!

The 3 days we spent here were relaxing and I would highly recommend this hotel. It is located one block away from the Pacific, literally 100 yards. 100 yards in the other direction is Manuel Antonio National Park. The family that runs the hotel is kind and we were welcomed with smiles. At night, it was quiet and away from the busy and noisy beachfront bars, etc. In the morning, there were at least a dozen different birds that were able to be seen from the rocking chairs in front of our room. A great spot that I hope to return to!

Stayed at this hotel for one night June 4, 2013. The hotel was very clean and well maintained. Close walking distance to the park which was super convenient. The hotel also accommodated our small dog that was travelling with us. I would definitely recommend this hotel if travelling to Manuel Antonio and would stay there again.

Room Tip: Stayed on the 2nd floor. Room had a king and twin bed.

I love and recommend this hotel because its extremely well located, really close to the main entrance of the National Park Manuel Antonio. I stayed once in a hotel by the mountains and the view was nice, but at the end is all about this National Park and being close to it. The rooms and the pool are great for the price you pay. Clean, awesome food and great hospitality.
