My husband and I stayed at Manuel Antonio hotel for 4 nights. The staff was extremely helpful. Since we didn't have a fridge and had left over food, we asked the desk if we could store it in their fridge, instead they gave us one of those Styrofoam coolers with ice, which was perfect. Although it might be a little on the expensive side 80-90 dollars a room, they do have a few small rooms available that are cheaper, if you ask them and it's available they will accommodate. This hotel does have the best access to the beach, sure you see vendors during the day when you look out the window, but the beach is right there, no long walks in the heat. Next trip to Manuel Antonio I will definitely stay at MA Hotel again.

Our family of 5 stayed for 2 nights, we found the rooms VERY clean, great hot showers, comfortable beds, helpful and friendly staff. Good location across from the beach, close to restaurants, outdoor market, national park. We had a rental car, but were able to walk everywhere. Only drawbacks were no pool and AC a little noisy. We had several power outages while there and this was one of the few hotels that had a back-up generator.

Even though the park was closed when we visited, we still stayed at the Manuel Antonio hotel & found the hotel to be very nice. The hotel was clean & the staff was very friendly. You could see the ocean from our room/private balcony. The restaurant connected was also OK. Nothing special. However, when you travel to Costa Rica you learn that many hotels are very BASIC. This hotel is a step above that. There's also a very busy little street market right outside the hotel. Fun to look around & bargain with the locals. But the prices are a little high. I would recommend to a person who wants to travel with the locals. Enjoy!

Found this hotel on Trip Advisor, on my second day in Manuel Antonio. The reviews were right! Excellent location, My room was 25 ft to the beach. Well maintained room, AC, Cable, Hot Water( No S Shower), free in room safe. Closest Hotel to Manuel Antonio Park, next to entrance, Bus Stop in front of Hotel.
Had a hard time finding info on web. www.hotelmanuelantonio.com website is supposed to be being updated, I would call direct for reservations and rates. [--] or [--]. The only negative is no pool, but with an awesome beach 25ft away, no biggy!

Drove to Manuel Antonio National Park without a place to stay and found this little gem at the end of the road. Located a very short walk to the Manuel Antonio National Park entrance and across the street from the beach I cant see staying anywhere else if you plan on spending any significant time at the park (which I highly recommend doing). Stayed 3 days in late November for $58/night. This included a descent size two bed room with cable TV, AC, safe and a balcony with a view of the rainforest (we had sloths literally hanging in the trees right outside our balcony) . Don't bother with the hotel restaurant because your walking distance to quite a few restaurants and bars with much better food and prices. Across the street from the hotel is a setup of street vendors selling food and knick-knacks that gets pretty busy during the day. If your looking to spend time talking in the numerous hiking trails, wildlife and beautiful beaches offered in Manuel Antonio this is your place. If your looking for a resort style hotel with free breakfast and lounging by the pool look elsewhere.

Rooms are okay but they charge too much for what it is. Breakfast are not included and it is a trap as the restaurant attached to the hotel charged twice as much as anywhere else in Costa rica !
The only good point is the location in front of the park and one of the most beautiful beach of costa rica.
