I went to Costa Rica for a wedding and the friends of the bride all chose to stay at Issimo Suites. I had no idea what to expect, as I had never been to Costa Rica before.
Upon arrival of our long day of traveling, we were immediately greeted with champagne. For the first few nights, I decided to stay at the top of the hotel with the view. WHAT A VIEW! Two of the walls were completely glass and were absolutely spectacular.
After the first few nights, I moved down from the Penthouse to one of their standard rooms, and it was just as spectacular...it just didnt have the jaw dropping view.
The staff was extremely kind, and very helpful. The monkeys LOVED the railings at the pool area around dusk and the wild crabs walked their way around the hotel grounds as well. The stray cat "Issima" gave the "hotel" a quaint charm. The howler monkeys loitered in the jungle trees just outside of the hotel.
It's a short walk to the beach, but make sure you bring a bottle of water with you. The uphill climb on the way back can be a little tough after spending time baithing in the sun.
If I am ever lucky enough to go back to Manuel Antonio, Issimo Suites will be where I stay for sure.
I cannot say enough good things about Issimo. <3
