“just what we needed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2011

We stayed her in March 2011 2rooms for a family of 4. Rooms were nice but bathrooms could have been more spacious and better vented. Very close to beach and National Park(less than 5 minutes) Free breakfast buffet was excellent and had many choices. Grounds were well maintained.Neach towels were provided but we did pay a small fee to have them exchanged daily. After checking out and spending the day on the beach it was very nice to have bathrooms available with showers to change before heading back to San Jose.

The girlfriend and I stayed here a few weeks ago and we were looking for an amazing beach front access and a simple hotel with a view, and boy did we find it. The front desk gentlemen were very helpful; signed us up for an "interbus", spoke great English and WIFI was available, along with a computer by the front desk. AC worked great, rooms were clean, the room safe was free, no deposit like most hotels. Room 15 has the most breathe taking sunset!! We will be going bk for sure!!

Only thing we wish it had was a bar fridge!!

The hotel is right by the beach and the national park, it has a nice garden and some rooms have their balcony with an amazing ocean view! Each room has a cable tv, big shower, two double beds that were very comfortable and a/c and a private big balcony.in our room the wifi signal was only in the balcony but that was fine since it was so nice to sit there. The rooms were cleaned every day by a nice lady that always left us flowers from the garden and arranged our towels in different designs. The only downside was the price 60$ a night which is very pricey even for costa rica, and we found out that another room that stayed only 2 nights (we stayed for 3) only paid 50$.

I stayed at this hotel while visiting the Manuel Antonio national park.

Location:
The location is as good as can be for he/she who plans to visit the park. The park entrance is across the street. Furthermore the hotel is at the end of the street meaning that there are few disturbances (e.g. traffic) to speak of.

The hotel has no pool but the end of the public section of beach is also across the street. There are nice and far less crowded beaches within the national park, an option to consider if you are prepared to pay the entrance fee.

The hotel has no restaurant but there are restaurants next to the hotel so this is a no-issue.

The rooms are spacious, rather basic (as is the rest of the hotel) but they are clean and functional. Sleeping comfort is OK.

During our stay there was an issue with our pre-payment not received, however the staff were helpful and sorted it out. (The issue was found caused by the travel agency who arranged the trip, not by the hotel).

For the visitor planning to visit the park and/or the beaches and not looking for luxury I would recommend this hotel.

This hotel has the best location to the beach, shopping and restaurants most within walking distance. The rooms are spacious and clean with a great fan and air conditioning. The hotel also has a restaurant next to it. The food was good and the owners work there (spectacular and friendly people). You can catch a bus every 15 minutes right across the street for 50 cents or 250 colognes per person. Our room was #2, it was on the first floor with a spectacular ocean view. We paid $74.00 per night for a standard room. The hotel does not have a pool or fitness room, but with the great ocean and walking distance to so much it didn't bother us. Also, it is beside the entrance into the National Park!



We are going to stay there again next year!!!

Room Tip: Ask for an oceanfront room!

I stayed at this hotel for the second time in my lfe and found it unchanged except for age.
It offers clean rooms with aging furnishings, a/c, a restaurant, and exceptional location across the street from the beach and adjacent to the park. Carlos, the manager is very nice as is Frank at reception. It's not a bad value hotel for the area and is clean and fairly quiet. There are many more upscale hotels in Manuel Antonio but none with a better location.

Room Tip: As with most of CR hotels, occupanycy is down but is iffy on holidays. Call ahead

Really enjoeyd this place. We were on the second floor facing the beach. Loved the balcony. The room was very clean and the shower. Location was perfect within walking distance from the beach. Serene, relaxing and a wonderful place to stay. I would definately stay here again.
