Stayed here 2 nights, very busy part of the season.
There was something that I did not quite like about this place, but I never figured it out- I think it was just crowded and a little noisy with people coming and going. Or maybe it was just the general crowdedness of Manuel Antonio- after coming from quiet Monteverde.
Anyway, the people were very nice. Our breakfast server was super nice, made sure we had enough water- which is a rare thing in a restaurant in Costa Rica- I drink a lot.
The check in was very nice, helpful.
The location close to the park is essential- I saw many people struggling with parking, paid parking of course. We went to the park, came back for brunch and recover from the heat, then went back in.
The room is large, the beds were super comfy, lots of pillows.
AC great, Free Wi-Fi.
the pool was comfortable and warm at the end of the day, though it is small, not many people in it.
We met other people who hated their hotel in M.A., so I think we should have been more than happy.
Maybe the other factor is that this place is bigger than the 3-7 unit places we had been staying, loses the personal factor.
But, overall, I think for Manuel Antonio, it was a great place. and not to beat up M.A, this park had the greatest concentration of monkeys, sloths, cool birds as well as great beaches. it is just overdeveloped- they should cut back on the admission numbers more!
