My husband, his friend, and I were so excited to finally get to La Posada and enjoy all of the great things everyone has written reviews about. It wasn't exactly that pleasant for us. We were in town for a wedding so we weren't going to be available on a few of the nights they had activities but tried our best to be there as much as we could to absorb the people and the great food we had heard about.
The first night was ok, we got there it was late and raining: We went inside the gate and told Estaban we were checking in he got all of our names and wrote them on the calendar on their refrigerator - (the grounds looked exactly like the pictures we had seen- an outdoor dinning area and lots of beautiful rainforest all around) he got us our key and showed us everything in La Casa which also looked exactly like the pictures we had seen besides the 60" big screen tv has since been replaced with maybe a 32" flat screen on a tv stand. He let us know a few nights a week they would have dinner and there is a large poster in the dinning area with the pizzas they offer to make nightly. So, we asked if he could start one of those- he said he was about to get off but would show us where to go, we followed him down to the main drag and decided on a place to eat.
On Sunday we were awakened by the noises outside our room (buses and people on the very busy street out front headed to the national park) so we went down for breakfast. (Gallo Pinto is absolutely the best here) Afterwords, we asked to be put down for the Mahi-Mahi dinner they were having that evening. We went out and explored the town (which is just amazing) and went to the grocery store to stock up on a few things. We skipped dinner with friends to head back and get cleaned up for the Mahi-Mahi dinner. When we got there Estaban said no one else had wanted dinner and they couldnt just cook dinner for the three of us. Earlier, at the store we had purchased things to make our own pizzas so we headed up to just do that instead- we noticed that the oven was missing all of the buttons and anyway to get it going. We went back down and asked if Estaban would make pizzas instead of the big dinner he had planned- he said no so we asked if he would mind calling a local pizza place to deliver one for us, which he did. (we definitley need to brush up on our Spanish before another trip)
On Monday my husband was interested in paddle boarding so one of the guys said he would call around and see what he could find by the time we were back from the beach- we got back and he had forgotten so he then got on the phone and and called around. (no luck there) On Tuesday we had a wedding ceremony to attend and were pretty much gone all day. On Wednesday my husband went down to ask a few questions and see if Jonathan would make pizza that night. He was on the phone the entire time and seemed to be extremely bothered by the fact my husband was even asking questions giving short answers and continuing to talk to whoever on the phone. (adding they were not making pizzas that night either) Sometime between here my husband met Mike. We were finishing up our last full day on Friday- I went down to get breakfast and was asked by a gentleman if i wanted him to cook eggs, I said no thanks and politely sat down for breakfast. After my husband came down he pointed out that the gentleman who offered me eggs sitting with another group of people was Mike. He didnt introduce himself or anything when I was down there much less offer to spend any of his time with us. We had an early flight out of San Jose Saturday morning and left about 6am-there were no pastries left out for us. :(
I will say the nice man on night duty (who knew very little english) was always very sweet to us he tried his best to understand us and would always smile and greet us or tell us goodnight as we headed to bed.
The woman who cleans is also super sweet but knows very little English as well. (we were in their country though so it wasnt expected by any means) The place was immaculate every time she left there. She always left fresh towels, changed the sheets, and even folded our dirty laundry pile in the closet floor.
We never did get that pizza we had heard about, or the amazing dinner meal we signed up for, nor did I officially get to meet the owner, Mike.
I was very disappointed with the overall service we received and am not sure what it was about our particular group that we were so different from anyone else.

We stayed here for two nights and were beyond satisfied with our rooms and service.
Location: The hotel is feet away from the national park entrance and a couple of blocks from the beach.
Room: We stayed in the smallest room and couldn`t ask for more. The room was clean and spacious. It had a small refrigerator, microwave, and stove so you are covered if you wanted to reheat your food or just make a quick meal. Speaking of food, they make a delicious breakfast every morning that is to die for and even make dinner a couple of times a week. The staff is very informative, and helpful; they even helped us book a couple of activities and got us a discount to boot.
All in all, we will be staying at La Posada whenever we go back to manuel antonio.

This place has the best location - close to the beach and right next to the park. The staff is great - friendly and so helpful. They have nightly activities creating a fun environment for everyone. The owner, Mike, and Jonathan were always available to help set-up tours and had great advice to make our trip more enjoyable. We'll definitely be coming back here.

You couldn't get any closer to the Manuel Antonio National Park. No car needed once you're here. Walking distance to everything needed. Breakfast was good-- had a variety of fruits, eggs, pancakes, etc. and had coffee and pastries set out early for the early risers.

Owner is onsite and very very nice. He was more than accomodating to let us keep our luggage in a locked storage room so that we could spend the entire day at Manuel Antonio after we checked out that morning. Great value for price.

We stayed for 2 nights and everything was really nice. The room (Posada Room) is comfortable and clean, the included breakfast was tasty and the hotel has the best location, the national park entrance is just next door! The hotel is kinda small for all the rooms, but is really cool and the staff is super friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Fridge in the room is noisy sometimes Try the sushi in the front street!
