We stayed one night in this hotel. I stayed here previously and was impressed. I initially booked our whole stay here, but got lured away by a groupon for the Parador. Big mistake. This spot is amazing. The staff are super friendly. The hotel is very clean. They have free phone use to the US, wireless internet, and a pool. Breakfast in the morning was alright, but they regularly screen movies in the evening, which is great because the town is kind of dead at night. Also, free boogie board use. Did I mention the monkeys that come to visit regularly? Oh, and the fact that the hotel is basically at the entry gate of the park.

I would definitely stay here again. The guests and the staff are all great people.

I don't really know why you are reading this review because 350 people that reviewed it before have said it all. Of my two week CR visit this was by far the best hotel that we have stayed at. the staff was ridiculously, amazingly, awesomely, helpful. The rooms were very clean and smelled so awesome. They didn't have that musty smell that comes when the air conditioning has been turned off. All my hotel visits will be judged by this gold standard. The breakfast was substantial too. None of that fruits only breakfast. WOW!!!!!! The price was ridiculously awesome too. Marco was really awesome. It is right next to the park too. They go out of their way to help you. Luckily we came during low season otherwise there is no way this place would have room..

Really really great hotel. Lovely bungalows, modern and clean each with outdoor seating and a hammock. Cute little pool and good dining area with tv. Really good substantial breakfast and they do a few meals a week which are great value. Perfect location just at the entrance to the park and close to an amazing beach. The bus from Quepos stops only a few hundred metres away. The whole team were super helpful, thanks guys!

We checked in three days ago and never want to leave. Frank, the owner, has made us feel right at home with his endearing smile and easygoing bungalows. The bungalows are very comfortable and all the guests feel like a big family. The noise level was perfect for couples, families, or just going solo. The staff has done everything was have asked and more. They always have a smile on their face, and they want your experience to be the best it can be. NOW the LOCATION, you are at the opening of Manuel Antonio National Park, an amazing sanctuary for all of the beautiful flora and fauna of Costa Rica. Make sure to bring a bathing suit when visiting the park, the lagoon is possibly the most spectacular beach I have ever seen. We will be returning to Quepos again, if only to visit La Posada!!

Best bargain in CR. We stayed here for 3 nights! We arrived a little earlier and were met by Marco (totally cool dude) who let us put our bags in the room while they were cleaning in! Bungalows were large in size and right next to the park! also had a sitting area with hammock which was awesome!! This is the best value in CR- for 80 we had large bungalow plus a great breakfast in am (not continental by any means) also every other night they would have a dinner movie which was only $7 can't beat that with a stick. Marco also set us up with a guide for the park (Mope- who was fantastic!!) and surf lessons which was spectacular!!! Loved the vibe in MA and thought this was highlight of trip! able to meet cool people here!!! Loved it Loved it! Would come back again!! Also they had the best monkeys- squirel monkeys hanging out in the hotel area!! Staff was fantastic everyone was super nice!! They will arrange any tour and do your laundry- convience at it's best!!!!

Our stay at La Posada was fabulous! The location can't be beat - just outside the entrance to Manuel Antonio. The staff was warm and friendly and rather than making us switch accommodations during our three night stay, made us a great deal on La Casa, the two bedroom, two bath unit that boasts a full size kitchen, large living room and huge screened in porch on the second floor. The staff and other guests were all so friendly; the atmosphere had the warmth of the hostels we stayed in as twenty-somethings while the accommodations had all the comforts we now want (as 50+ year olds!)
The breakfast was great; we had one dinner there and the staff was very accommodating when we asked that the meal be modified for vegetarians. There were also plenty of reasonably priced restaurants within walking distance.
My husband and I were travelling with his brother; the accommodations would have been equally perfect if we had been travelling with our adult children or friends.

Room Tip: La Casa had plenty of room to hang out. We were there for election night and invited other travell...

We stayed in a room that included everything you need - fully equiped kitchen like I havn't seen in any other hotel (big fridge, stove, microwave oven, even a popcorn bag..), AC, TV, nice shower with hot water, a safe, a hammock... everything was nice, comfortable and clean. Includes a generous breakfast.
The location is great - right at the main entrance to the national reserve.
The place in general was very nice and friendly, staff is speaking English. Felt like home away from home.
* We got there after spending a night in a different hotel in Manuel Antonio, that was more expensive and didn't include breakfast. Jonathan wellcomed us and invited us to a free breakfast the morning we arrived. Thanks!
