My friend and I stayed at the manala hotel for 3 nights and it was a great place to stay. Very clean and beds were comfy and the AC works very well. This place comes with free breakfast. The service was phenomenal here thanks to Fabian at the front desk! He helped us organize our tours and got us a surfing lesson that worked with our schedule as well! He always available to answer our questions from opening the door (haha) to riding the bus. Overall a great stay and I highly recommend this place!

Very nice hotel for the area and price! Clean rooms, hot water,great a.c, and wifi works great too. Everything you need in the jungle! Beach access is across the street, Easy 2 minute walk. Grocery store only a few minute walk up the road as well.free Breakfast included coffee,oj, bowl of fruit and 3 options to choose from, more options for a price also available. Banana pancakes were so yummy! Only down side was a long walk to heart of town. Plan on renting an ATV or car to get around. Plenty of ATV rentals around, charging 60$ 70$ for 24 hours. Front desk very helpful with all arrangements!

Hotel rooms are spacious and very nice. Friendly staff and nice pool next to the restaurant. Our stay was for 2 nights only. Beach is a 3min walk from the hotel. If you don`t want to eat at the hotel, there are many options at walking distance. Reservations through Expedia was a little odd, but nothing to worry about. The hotel would only received 1/2 our stay on my credit card and the other 1/2 had to be cash. A little noisy early in the morning due to some construction work in the next property.

Room Tip: Try to book the rooms closest to the restaurant, that way you will avoid the noise from the bar next door at night.

We are staying at the Manala hotel at this moment and hoping to get some sleep. Earplugs can not stop the loud music from the neighbouring bar. It’s the 4th night with loud music, but tonight it is really frustrating loud. What a pity. The hotel itself is lovely. Nice setup, friendly staff, close to one of the nicest beaches I know.

Hi, Ernst!
Thank you for your comments.
We know that the neighbors had a party last night, every time something like this happens we call the police to silence them. We have reported that they lowered the volume at midnight. For now, we had no problems the previous 3 nights and always look for quick solutions when some people outside the hotel are bothering.
It's a shame, these situations escape from our hands. Still, our goal is to make you feel comfortable staying at our hotel.
We hope you can enjoy the rest of your vacation.
Best regards.
