“Good price and location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

It's a simple hotel, a bit old but it has an excellent location for visiting the Manuel Antonio National Park.
The price in July 2014 is $79 per room with two queen beds, bathroom, cable TV, A/C and free wi-fi.
Clean enough and just in front of the Manuel Antonio beach

Room Tip: Ask for a room with beach views on the second floor

For the price ($80/night) you can't beat it, but it's not a luxury hotel. They provide towels and soap in the bathrooms, but no shampoo or hair dryer. The rooms are clean with comfortable beds and good air conditioning. The staff is friendly, speak English, and can line you up with a tour guide for the park. The ocean view rooms look across the street to the beach and are the same price as non-view. There is no pool, but with the beach right there, you don't need one. The little restaurant has inexpensive food and cold beer. The entrance to the park is about 150 yards behind the hotel, so you don't have to park anywhere else.

I would stay there again. :)

we planned on staying in the hotel for 2 nights and extended our stay to 5 nights.
the hotel consists of the relatively more expensive rooms and the cheaper ones (above the restaurant). we stayed in the cheaper rooms. the room was very clean - the cleaning woman was extra nice and came every day to clean the room, change the towels and make the beds.our requests were complied positively with a smile and a nice attitude. the hotel and restaurant are managed by an old nice couple who are always at the restaurant area and available if you need anything. we insisted on having the only room with seaview, which was a very good decision indeed.

Room Tip: room 28 has seaview

Stayed here two nights after escaping a hotel with cockroaches. Was not so happy with the reviews here, but had little option...

And SURPRISE!

Hotel located across street from the beach, ocean view rooms, inexpensive, clean - WHAT MORE CAN YOU WANT?? Really, comparing some of the other places in the area, I am surprised that people are so picky. Everything was perfect, located at the beach and next to the entrance to the national park.

Food in the restaurant not that great...but there are pleanty of places around where you can enjoy food and drinks - this is good about the hotel that it is located at the beach, centrally in Manuel Antonio, so no need to walk up and down the hills from town to hotel!

I agree with people, that this hotel has so much more potential. With THIS LOCATION, they could upgrade the rooms and charge twice the price. So be happy that you can enjoy for this low price, while the rooms are really decent and location perfect.

Staff really friendly and helpful during the stay. Free parking at the hotel !

Don't think about it, just choose this place over the others in the area.

I agree with other reviewers, the Manuel Antonio Hotel has wonderful location right across the street from the ocean. Step out and enjoy the incredible sunsets. The owners plan to make improvements to the place including new bedding (desperately needed) and a pool. Just watch, when those improvements are made, you won't be able to get a double room for $98/night. The proximity to the national park is wonderful. We were not impressed with food at the restaurant so we walked down the street to the Marlin Restaurant and others. Very handy location

Room Tip: Ask for a street/ocean front room.

Setting is amazing. View and bird watching superb and restful after travelling a lot throughout Costa Rica. Staff very helpful, food great. Good shuttle service to Manuel Antonio Nature reserve and beach.
Tastefully designed interior. Altogether a good advert for ecology principles.

The hotel is right across the road from the beach with fantastic views from some of the rooms. Manuel Antonio national park is right behind the hotel. Many shops and restaurants in walking distance. Only a short cab ride to more restaurants or into Quepos.
