“The hotel is fine, the staff is great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

This is our second time in this Hotel

We decided to visit this hotel again because it's very nice, fairly close to the beach (if you have a car), the rooms are very clean, it's very quiet.

The pool is OK. The staff is awesome, very kind and helpful.

If they could include the breakfast, i would rate this hotel better, although, this is a great place to spend a couple of nights

Room Tip: Check out the "Suite".

We went to Mimos for three nights during low season. The hotel was completely empty and the pool was being renovated. We got a good rate and were asked to pay everything in advance, even though it didn't matter if it was two or three nights. After a change in our trip itinerary we wanted to cancel the last night. The guy in the front desk who was nice before started telling us he can't because of Costa Rica taxes and he has to pay his employees. When offering to pay the taxes he began making up excuses. We ended up leaving anyways but don't recommend this type of service to anyone...

We arrived to Manuel Antonio and went to las colinas hotel that we found earlier on the Internet. We got a nice room with a great view but in order to get to the room we had to climb 80 stairs!! On the second day a London group on teenagers arrive and we decides to leave. We found Mimi's hotel which was great! Great rooms, nicely designed, great pool very nice staff. We enjoyed the night there and we're sorry we didn't spend the first nights there as well.

I walked into this hotel having experiencing a tough situation the previous night at another hotel. Having just flew into a new country not knowing a lick of Spanish with a crazy night’s sleep at the other hotel, I was a man searching for peace and I got it. The lady at the front desk was very helpful in understanding my needs and escorted my to a very nice room at a better price than my previous hotel!

The owners are very nice and were very helpful with advice. These people at this hotel are good people at the heart. I’m glad that I was guided there. If I’m in that area again, be assured, I will be staying there. Keep up the great work guys!!

I booked a group to stay at Hotel Mimos. They were very satisfied with the quality of the rooms. For the price, it was incredible. As a guide, the staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. They were able to accomodate the group, get their laundry done and went above and beyond what one might expect from a hotel staff. Thank you for everything!

my boyfriend and i stayed here during low season and found this place very charming and romantic! we had a reservation for a standard room (which were recently renovated and pretty nice, too), but when i asked for a room less close to the street, they took us to the upper building to a beautiful suite!(huge bathroom with hot tub and shower, big balkony with a great view and some monkeys climbing around in forn of the windows) and since in november there aren't many tourists in costa rica, we got the suite for the same price!
the ambience of the entire place is really nice, they use lots of wood and stones. they have 2 pools and 2 whirlpools and a really good italian restaurant as well. the bus stop is right in front so its easy to get to the national park.

Room Tip: choose a room in the upper building, don't be afraid to ask for discounts during low season.

We found Hotel Mimos because of Trip Advisor. We were using the app from our iPhones and found this place before departing from our hotel in Jaco.

We didn't make any reservations ahead of time and were lucky enough to be able to book a room on the spot.

The first room (cheaper room) they showed us nearest the road wasn't so nice. We asked for the next room pricing up and they hooked us up with one of the rooms up near the pool.

The room was nicer, but it had a faint funny smell the whole time we were there. It may have been the smell of bug spray.

The bed was nice and the sheets reminded me of the sheets you have at home. It's not a bad place to stay.
