This place is amazing! I have stayed here twice now, and i will keep going back. I usually go in the slow season (September) without a reservation and walk right in to the front desk and they have availability. The rooms are quite spacious for four people. Completely fill like you are in a private tropical oasis. Toucans flying overhead, large iguanas on the terraces, and the occasional squirrel monkey visit. The food is great. Mike makes so many great dishes. The drinks are reasonably priced. The breakfast is perfect. They have a hotel cat Stevie and the dog Tito that will welcome your affection on your arrival. Pool is amazing. Forget the comfort of name brands, this is the place to go. Also a quick walk (30 minutes) to Manuel Antonio National Park, or drive down the hill and you'll be there in no time. Pay for the parking!!!! 3000 Costa Rican Colones ($6.00 USD)

I miss this place already!

Room Tip: Ask for an Ocean View Room. This place is not on the Ocean but along the hillside. Feels like the tropical version of Florence, Italy with an Ocean.

I believe that these hotel reviews are greatly dependent on the current state of mind of the writer. I guess I must have been in an excellent state of mind because I loved my 3 day experience at La Colina. Ocean view room and balcony were great, sunsets and early mornings grand, ac worked fine for sleeping, breakfast was simple but good, hosts and staff friendly and accomodating, long hike up many stairs was good exercise, pool was cool and inviting. Not a 5 star hotel, don't expect those kind of amenities, and your stay should be fine.

Room Tip: Ocean view seemed to please fellow guests

I have stayed in many hotel, bed and breakfast and hostels but Hotel LaColina offerred so much more than a bed. The staff was exceptionally nice provided the upmost hospitality. We felt like we were staying with family. Everyone was eager to accomadate us and ensure a most pleasent experience. The restaurant and bar was our favorite, we were happy to stay in rather than go out. Thank you La Colina I will be back and recommend you highly!

We stayed 3 days at La Colina last week and had a great time. The owner, Mike, was super friendly and helpful and we had some good times at the bar in the evenings. The pool is also connected to the bar and the entire outside area is great.

One of the rooms we booked was the Tree House - a bigger twin room up high, which had its own balcony outside, great for chilling with friends. There are also more expensive apartments available with ocean views.

The beds were nothing special but that didn't stop us getting a good night's sleep in this idyllic surrounding, up the hills and hidden in the trees. I would definitely recommend it and stay here again! Gay friendly too.

Room Tip: Try the Tree House and take advantage of the balcony outside and the cool seclusion up in the trees

Great rooms, beautiful view, quiet and relaxing. We arrived in Manuel Antonio with no plans and were lucky enough to stumble on this hidden jewel. Our only complaint was the mattress was worn...Highly recommended.
