My family of four stayed in this hotel during a recent vacation and it was our favorite of the three we stayed in. The staff are fabulous! They go out of their way to be helpful and even anticipate your needs. This is a small-ish hotel very near the Manuel Antonio National Park (rainforest) on the Pacific side. Only about 40 or so rooms. It is built into the side of a hill, and you can get around by golf carts. We got to know several of the drivers very well. Believe them when they say to lock your balcony doors at night -- we closed, but didn't lock, and monkeys stole snacks from our minibar overnight! The beach is beautiful as well. We took a tour of the park with a guide from the hotel, and saw many animals, birds, insects, and even an alligator. Try the "casada" plate at the restaurant while you are there. Delicious Costa Rican specialty.
